Even being of Samsung fan, I have to say HTC is coming back. It's new Desire series are so sweet (design, specs) if the global price is the same as in China.
I laughed on HTC on its hilarious statement "budget devices spoil our high class brand", and it seems now they change.

true, but who and why would anyone would want to buy this...? if i couldnt afford a highend phone and was poor, i would save up and get a highend phone

Believe me, this phone is enough for many people only need mail sync, facebook, whatapping, sometimes taking a photo with a small size.

Not exactly maybe somebody doesnt like to pay more for high-range and low-range enough for Him.

Do you think many people can buy a high end phone? No! Most of students usually dont have money so this phone is enough for social networking and communicate with other people

At that's the bottom line cause HTC said so!

most people may to need it cus cost is going to be low..
But everything is suitable for low-range phone..
Design is very good like the others product from htc..
I think htc come back to ring very soon with these great desire series(plus m8) in china and international

Probably the best low budget phone available. I prefer flagships, but this would be great for someone looking for a low budget phone, or for a kid. Good job HTC.

I'm not an HTC Basher or troller but I think Zenfone Series could easily destroy this phone.

512 MB of RAM? OMG. Are you kidding me, HTC? Please make it at least 768 MB of RAM. HTC Desire V lags with 512 MB of RAM

The lag is mainly because of the slow processor. My HTC One V has 512MB of RAM as well, but it's runs rather smoothly.
But I agree, qHD is an overkill for the 512MB of RAM. I think 768MB of RAM should be the bare minimum for every device out there

I had one, bought it cause it was bargain. Looks the diamond old, with I curve at the bottom, very we'll built phone, but hugely let down by the specs. This phone should've had been the Htc oneX.....
