Comment: I just love this phone, had it for 4 weeks now. Perfect size, easy to use, all the features I need. Never going back to iPhone. Good price! Trace typing very efficient. Camera has many good features. Lightweight. Easy to use, logical and intuitive.
Good: most stuff
Bad: moto g
Comment: This phone WAS the best budget phone for a month then Motorola came in kicked everyone's ass and sent shockwaves through the whole budget industry waking Samsung especially I reckon every phone companys gonna have to start rolling put phones like this and the moto g or they will loose the budget industry
Comment: All new mobiles 2013, mobile rates, mobile phone prices, latest mobile phones, android mobiles prices in Pakistan.
Bad: I couldn't find leather case n screen protector, lazy htc.
Comment: no doubt in this price this is much much better choice. The first good thing i felt as i was used experi P already and its battery was a mess,
this fone has a very good battery life. even on 14% prompt it goes for 4 hours further while using this. Music quality excellent on handsfree just the shrills on max volume cut out the sound clarity and hurts your hearing. Pretty much good vivid display, fast and easy to go, browing is fun, in short its a fair very fair deal.
Good: quad core processor, 8MP camera, expandable storage
Bad: has to compete against the Moto G
Comment: My first smartphone was a HTC Desire and it was great. Probably HTC's most iconic phone to date. While this is aiming at a different market to HTC's current flagship, it still has pretty decent specs, and at £200 all in, would in a normal world seem like a bargain. However, Motorola has sent a wake up call to other manufacturers in the shape of the soon to be released Moto G. At £135, and with a better screen, and processor, there's only going to be one winner...
