Pretty decent for a mid range smartphone
edelxander has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
its a pretty decent phone indeed. love the curvy design. the display was not disappointing at all. how ever there should be more option button..for example you cannot show the battery percentage on the top corner. the blink feed was excellent as well.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 7/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 8/10Display 8/10Battery 7/10

HTC Desire 500
Trifun has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Battery is sometimes poor, but is ok. Camera for this money is great. I do not like the keyboard but not a flaw. Display is only good as a little slippery back cover. The preparation of the phone and I like the look and hand. Reception is better than for example iphone 4s. Sound quality during calls was good and nice to hear.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 10/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 8/10

Good phone for average user
liman has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Very beautiful phone with good camera and music output.Everything works as it should.My only problem is heating when playing games or browsing sites with a lot of flash content (after 20 mins),so its definitively not a phone for gamers.Battery is decent and i love the blink feed,if only it had more local content.Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

Excellent smartphone for getting things done easily and quickly

Don't waste Your money on super fancy stuff You will not use. Desire 500 has everithing an average user could want. It is honest and simple enough not to drive You mad in everiday use and the quad core processor makses sure no time is wasted during it. Buy a flip-up case just for a good measure to save the glass and incease handling, because without it the phone is just too slippery (hence the beauty of design).Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10
- extremely user friendly interface (intuitive)
- fabulous easy to use camera
- perfect for quick day to day basic tasks
- Sexy design
- clever removable back cover that will not break all the clamps after a couple of openings.
- in a cold moist climat touch screen get's a but picky.
- glass could be made of a better quality

Dont buy this mobile
srinivask has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
my mobile is getting heating very quickly like 5 to 10 mins while gaming even which use less graphics . Mobile heated up where we keep our mobile near to ear while picking calls, that means the basic purpose of mobile is failing. i got replacement after many visits and calls to htc service center, even the new mobile having the same problem. I thick it is failure design. I recommend not to buy this mobile.Build quality 6/10Reception 3/10Call quality 6/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 6/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 5/10Display 5/10Battery 5/10

Okay, I have to admit that this phone is much better than the iPhone, has lots of features, really powerful with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon, I mean it couldn't be any better than this, also the price is really fascinating and it's fairly new.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 8/10
- Camera (front & main)
- HTC BlinkFeed.
- Fast processor and lots of RAM.
- Lots of crazy Android features.
- Build quality and easy carriage.
- Battery life.
- Lack of settings.
