Good: camera, big screen, soundtrip powered by beats, sleeker than tab
Bad: limited storage
Comment: It seems like tab/pad came out handy with this product. Before i cant go without my cam, now i just rely with my mobile cam. Never been satisfied
Comment: Waste of money, has more issues than I can write about, in short, wont charge at times, dies mid phone conversation, turns itself on an off randomly, am now seeking refund from reseller, would NEVER buy HTC again!
Good: Camera, Beats audio
Bad: Most Stuff
Comment: I've had this phone since January and its caused nothing but grief.. 1. its too big, need to use both hands to use it, 2, its slow, 3, its freezes all the time and to top it off the screen doesn't work well at all. When on text messages it will type letters on its on without me even touching the phone.. now at first I thought it was broken but the same thing has happened to friends who have the phone..But the beast audio and headphones are the only good thing about it along with the 8M camera.. Get IPHONE!!
Good: music,screen size ,camera
Bad: pre-loaded apps ,can we not decide what we want on phone as u cant delete them?
Comment: Best mobile I've owned ,just a shame HTC pre- loaded it with apps you can't delete and they run in background constantley Facebook ext.such a shame as I would have given 5 stars .can the buyers not decide what apps we want HTC take note.
Good: Beats Audio, HTC Sense UI, Screen Size, Very Stylish Design, Camera Quality
Bad: Screen Resolution,
Comment: I change phones regularly and this is my second android phone. Absolutely loved it.
The screen size is huge but despite this the phone does not feel obnoxiously large. The screen resolution could have been better though.
The beats audio feature is amazing and the clarity of the audio output is superb.
The camera takes great shots and the front facing camera is great as well.
The phone is very fast though it is a single core and browsing, navigation all seem to work at a perfectly fast pace
Good: Beats Audio
Good: great huge screen,fantastic u/i,fast for single core,looks great really stands head and shoulers above any other handset,nice headphones.
Bad: no card slot,low media volume and doesnt play all media files on stock video player.
Comment: this phone looks great not sure what the reviewer was looking at when he said doesnt stand out,camera takes great shots wish video was 1080 but may get it upadted at some time,the screen is beautiful so big and bright and sense 3.5 looks so good on it too,cant play avi files on stock had to download 3rd party player for that seems strange as the device can play it after all,lots of lovely features and small touches like the lockscreen(make some more htc)i cant praise this enough and ive had plenty of phones and this one i really like...
Good: Beats audio and earphones, Looks and feels great, huge bright screen, fast, gingerbread+sense 3.5, great camera, a lot of memory compared to other htc phones and has decent battery life (for a smart phone)
Comment: Got an upgrade, could have had any phone out there and decided t go with this one. Havent looked back since, best phone out there:)
Good: large screen htc sence 1.5 processor
Bad: no sd slot only 12gb internal space the rest is for the other apps already on the phone battery bit misstake should have put alot larger 1 in
Comment: looks a great phone but the bad points out way the good points htc stop putting small batties and internal memory in you only lose sales. go for the htc sensation xe better phone all round.
Comment: the price is to for a low res screen!
