  • Excerpt: Very beautiful phone with good camera and music output.Everything works as it should.My only problem is heating when playing games or browsing sites with a lot of flash content (after 20 mins),so its definitively not a phone for gamers.Battery is decent and i love the blink feed,if only it had more local content.
  • Pros: Design, Camera, Display, Music output, Blink feed
  • Cons: Heating

Excellent smartphone for getting things done easily and quickly

  • Excerpt: Don't waste Your money on super fancy stuff You will not use. Desire 500 has everithing an average user could want. It is honest and simple enough not to drive You mad in everiday use and the quad core processor makses sure no time is wasted during it. Buy a flip-up case just for a good measure to save the glass and incease handling, because without it the phone is just too slippery (hence the beauty of design).
  • Pros: extremely user friendly interface (intuitive), fabulous easy to use camera, perfect for quick day to day basic tasks, Sexy design, clever removable back cover that will not break all the clamps after a couple of openings.
  • Cons: in a cold moist climat touch screen get's a but picky., glass could be made of a better quality

Dont buy this mobile

  • Excerpt: my mobile is getting heating very quickly like 5 to 10 mins while gaming even which use less graphics . Mobile heated up where we keep our mobile near to ear while picking calls, that means the basic purpose of mobile is failing. i got replacement after many visits and calls to htc service center, even the new mobile having the same problem. I thick it is failure design. I recommend not to buy this mobile.
  • Pros: camera, display
  • Cons: heating while playing games, heating while watching videos

Not as I expected!

  • Summary: I rate HTC phones very high but this one didn't impress me! I wanted a phone which can send a message of not less than 1,120. I was using BlackBerry Torch 9800 and it was marvelous!! Exclusively wonderful!! Unfortunately if you have a BlackBerry phone you must subscribe monthly for a data package which is very expensive as you have to buy two different bundles every month: airtime bundle as well as data bundle!

  • Excerpt: Okay, I have to admit that this phone is much better than the iPhone, has lots of features, really powerful with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon, I mean it couldn't be any better than this, also the price is really fascinating and it's fairly new.
  • Pros: Camera (front & main), Display., HTC BlinkFeed., Fast processor and lots of RAM., Lots of crazy Android features., Build quality and easy carriage.
  • Cons: Battery life., Lack of settings.

Complaint

Gonzalo Sismondi, Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: Dear sir/madam I am sorry to say that it all went properly at first. But recently some problems have shown up on my phone such us the camera ("Unable to launch the camera") which is dissapointing. This happens everytime I click on the application. I would be interested in knowing how to fix the problem or some other solutions. As you can imagine,  i am upset as I bought it a month ago and is already having issues.
