Should have compared price to performance
FamilyMan has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I know a lot of people are going to ask how can you give an HTC such low numbers, well its because it scores low for price compared to hardware of other phones in its class. The Desire, Galaxy S3, and Supreme are the most expensive phones Virgin Mobile has to offer. For the price of the Desire it doesn't perform any better than the Victory, and its the same price as the Supreme, but gets outdone by the Supreme in every category. If this device was the same price as the Victory then I would score it higher, but as of right now the Desire and the Supreme are both priced at $249.99, the Victory is priced at $149.99, and the S3 is $349.99. While I don't believe the S3 is $100 better than the Supreme, the Desire isn't worth $100 more than the Victory, and isn't worth the same as the Supreme when the Supreme has better stats in every category. I should have never bought this phone from Radio Shack, but will be returning it and ordering a Supreme instead. The phone is of good quality and what it has works fine, however it is overpriced compared to other quality phones of its price range. With that in mind I took points off in every category as it is overpriced for its options.Build quality 7/10Reception 7/10Call quality 6/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 1/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 9/10Display 2/10Battery 7/10
- HTC label on it, quality build
- Small low resolution screen compared to S3 and Supreme
- only 5MP camera compared to 13MP of the Supreme at the same price
- small battery
- lesser 1.4 GHz processor while others in its price class boast 1.5GHz

This is the ideal smarthphone for me.
It's elegant, light and fast. It has nice sound quality.
I use this phone for navigation (Waze), music, Gmail, Youtube, ebay, photoshooting, browsing the net.
my accessories: Plantronics M55 (bluetooth headset) and Exogear Exomount Touch (car holder).
