Summary: I've had this phone about 3 days , it dropped out of my pocket and shattered the screen , i'm a welder by trade a phone this fragile does not work for me and the facebook thing is annoying , piece of junk!!!
Summary: I have had a non HTC Smartphone and I swore I would never go back to HTC. However I have had this phone for 6 months and I have had no issues what so ever. The only downside is there are times when the battery has to be charged twice a day because of how it drains. I love how easy it is to post to instagram twitter and facebook. I use facebook but I didnt like the FB Home feature so I shut it off. It is very sturdy. I have dropped a couple times and no damage.
Summary: This is a good smartphone for teens and people who love to be around facebook, twitter, and more alot. It runs on a good version of android but i wish is was 4.3 or even 4.2.2 would be good enough for me. Overall im stuck with it for 2 years and i think i can live with it for that long.
Pros: good screen , good android version , good camera , good design , good for social networkers!
I especially like the appearance, the size (not too big), and the reliability (no crashes since I got it). Battery life is outstanding (typically two full days per charge for me).

Summary: I've previously had an Iphone 1 and a Samsung Infuse. The HTC First is far superior to either. Both my previous phones crashed occasionally for no apparent reason. This has never happened with the HTC. My car Bluetooth connection never worked properly with the Infuse, but with the HTC it worked immediately and has never had a single problem.
Pros: ease of use. , reliability of latest android os (jelly bean) , battery life. , reasonable price.
Summary: Ive had htc phones all my life! I just cant get enoughh of them!!and this phone is just the iceing on the cake!! A wonderful camera alnog with plenty of storage spacee!! And the facebook setting is easy to remove bt i love fb so i kept it!!battery lasts long and the screen is beautiful and vibrant!!!
Pros: no battery makes it smaller and sheik , no sd but makes up with internal storage
Cons: no physcal battery to take out like a iphome , no sd slot
Summary: All I wanted was a decent smartphone that wouldn't break the bank and the HTC First delivered. The screen is bright and crisp and the battery life is better than expected (I can usually make it 1.5-2 days unless I'm using it heavily, then it's about a day). One thing I really like is that you can disable Facebook Home (but can't uninstall it, but that's a minor detail). The keyboard feature is easy to use and is quite accurate.
Summary: I'm not a facebook adict, so i've disabled the Facebook Home the minute i've turned on the phone. Without Facebook Home this phone is the best for the money. The camera is on the low side, but i do not use it frequently, so i do not care; i have canon 6d for taking photos. I could not believe that the screen is better then HTC 8X, albeit the same size. If i'm not mistaken, it uses SuperLCD3 screen. The storage size is not bad either at 16GB.
Summary: I really, really like this phone and I've had plenty of phones from the iphone, Blackberry and Windows Phone. It comes with Facebook Home preloaded. If you don't like it, you can easily turn it off. This phone has all the apps that I use, great battery life and the design is great. The camera takes great pictures I highly recommend this phone. I really can't think of one bad thing to say about this phone. I hated my iphone, Windows Phone and Blackberry.
Summary: I'm not a particularly tech savvy individual but I find this phone easy to use. The display is beautiful, the sound is good. I can clearly hear the person on the other end. The battery lasts all day for me. I don't talk or text heavily but I browse the web a lot. It only took a couple of hours to fully charge. I've only had this phone for about 4 days and I love it! I would recommend this phone to anyone like me who wants something nice but not overly fancy.
