Pros: New handset with new Developers making newer software for it
Summary: I would have given this phone five stars because the phone deserves it but the battery did not provide a similar performance. Unfortunately the battery only provided around four days on standby and had to be replaced with another and the phone now lasts around ten days on standby. The original battery is not dead and will be ok as a backup but only provided around 30% of the performance it should have had.
Summary: It is a great phone indeed. It's my first smartphone and I am very happy with all the features. The things I found I use the most are: - Calling, texting (duh! obviously) - but made so much more intuitive through the Android OS. No more digging in old messages and entering/exiting menus. You have all your messages saved as a "skype" like chat. Small thing, but I really appreciate that. Call quality is really good and you just need to tap on a name to call someone.
Conclusion: first of all i would like to mention that htc takes stand in touch as always and does the same with this device.. this device has unimetallic design..which feels good in hand pros- gud design, gud camera, 800mhz scorpian base processor which is equivalent to1ghz,very gud user interface,rear view(tri colour),gorilla glass,front facing camera,gud resolution cons- this device lack severly in phone memory..which is only 320 mb..which will also limit your application.
Summary: I'm pleased I bought this phone. It took some good shots of my recent snowboarding trip. The only downside is that pretty much every update (Facebook, Twitter, calendars, etc) causes a noise of some kind. I'd love to only get an audio alert for alarm clocks, SMS messages and phone calls. I can't find a way to do this, hence 4 stars and not 5.
