For the same piece of , you can get a sony xperia u with a dual core 1ghz processor, better screen and a better gpu . Htc have always used the lowest of the low specs for their budget devices. Its 2012 and htc still think its alright to put 600mhz processors in their phones. The only good thing about this device is that it has ics out of the box. If this device can run ics and then decided like the samsung galaxy s should too.

Looks like all the prices I can find peg it $100 more than this phone.

Only reason I'd get it is because it is small and want a good spare phone, and it has those HTC touches I like, such as it quiets down the ringtone when you pick it up while ringing.

Well I'll have to take your word for it since I'm just an internet person in the US. I think 600mhz is lame as well (and I know the SOC can do better when 3rd party kernels are made for it).

But from experience the problem with android has always been the ram, not so much the CPU. Add the fact that the GPU is now more utilized and it may just work fine.

Overclock this phone to at least 1ghz.
The soc on this phone is the same as the one on the l3 and mini 2,so why not?
