Not that worth it for a long/semi long term phone

qwerty99, htc.com
8 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Started off great with the phone, lovely design, great sound (even with cheap earphones), being windows and having a windows laptop was helpful because as soon as you take a picture, its on your laptop backed up through SkyDrive and whatnot, but after about only a year, it starts getting worse.

Eating memory

Sparwal, htc.com

  • Excerpt: Overall phone look is excellent (that attracts you to buy), but the phone memory is the biggest issue. You will not know why phone memory is decreasing continuously.

The phone is great, BUT..

MoroseMAgpie, htc.com
24 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Sigh. I love this phone. I love the size ( I'm not one for huge brick phones, can't get on with them) I love the soft matt- back, love the windows 8 interface/live tiles etc, and the sound quality is really impressive... But it is let down HUGELY by the totally pathetic internal storage, and the fact that you can't move Apps to your SD card.

Great Phone, Poor Software Update.

RetroScotty, htc.com
26 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I have used iPhones previously, and thought I'd try an alternative when it came up for a free upgrade. I liked the ease of use and found adding and removing music far superior to the iphone (No itunes, just drag and drop). I also really liked the Xbox integration. Its only downfall (and quite a big one) is when you try and use it on the underground tube.

Average phone with issues

Roopoo2u, htc.com
11 October 2013
  • Excerpt: There are basic issues with this phone which I wouldn't expect from HTC. Storage: i've put a 16 GB SD card in and it is only showing 14.8 available. It has 3.6GB phone storage but most of it is already taken up. I don't have many apps installed, just the standard like facebook, linkedin and twitter, and all music and photos are stored on the SD card.

Apps unable to save to S.D card.

Reuben101, htc.com
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Relatively good phone except for the fact that you cannot save apps to your s.d card. The phone storage is only 4 gigabytes, and when 2 of those four are taken up by the operating system it leaves barely any space for apps.

I shouldn't bought this phone

Mgramcy, htc.com
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Hi, I bought this phone 1 month ago. The first Cons. of this phone is the memory, because user available is 1.5 gb. U can't install much apps and u can't erase unwanted others files in setting. And another big problem is. If u have downloaded any pdf file u can't able to delete it. Then how u want to delete things up. And u can't install apps on your SDcard like in other android phones.

ok

skene, htc.com
22 June 2013
  • Excerpt: This was not my first HTC but might be my last. Battery won't last a day If emailing frequently or busy with calls. Speaker has now stopped working, won't get it repaired so have a six months old phone which if I call someone or if someone calls me they can't here me. Not handy! The blue rubber is also all coming off the corners, so it doesn't look very pleasant any more. Memory is rather small as well.
