not recommended

delphmeer has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

do not recommend the phone if you are an active person and like going out, running, or any other activity like that. after running with the phone in armband it stopped working. they told me it was in contact with liquid, and released from warranty.

Build quality 4/10 vibrates extremely noisy, do not use it in armband when running, it is enough one drop of sweat to make it unusable.
Reception 8/10 good looking
Call quality 8/10 no major issues, random freezes
Internet 10/10 no issues
Multimedia 8/10 random freezes
Camera 10/10 excelent
UI speed 8/10 good
Everyday usage 7/10 proximity sensor not working all the time. i ended ending calls with my cheek
Text input 8/10 ok
Display 8/10 ok
Battery 7/10 ok


  • good looking, decent usage


  • not compact enough, very sensitive to every bit of liquid.

Best in my experience!!

diary.kashyap has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Its my 4th phone!! And the expperience is best of all!! I have seen many handsets of this range and class but this is the best if u cant have hTC One!! The looks are really fabulous and camera along with the zoe feature is the best of all mobiles!! Plus the sense has all that a person need in daily use.. rest u have the play store!!

Build quality 8/10 the plastic surround is a bit weak and cracks develops when u drop it or sit on it :P Rest the aluminium body and its looks are fabulous!!
Reception 10/10 Its best .. i faced no problem till now considering networks!!
Call quality 10/10 it knows when u need what volume... its very easy to adjust.. and the quality is really gud! (Y)
Internet 10/10 using Internet is very convinent in this phone..
Multimedia 10/10 the sense feature adds a lot to the music app.. live lyrics and the visualizer plus the interface is really awesome!! The volume is same as compared to other devices but the quality is really better when compared to others
Camera 10/10 The camera cant be better!! though increasing the MPs can improve the usability when used to take distant pictures!! Other than that its the best camera ever seen on any phone!! Plus the zoe is the best feature ever used by me!!
UI speed 10/10 Never lags when using the mobile in general!!
Everyday usage 10/10 Perfect for everyday use.. the blinkfeed and other super features adds a lot to everyday!!
Text input 10/10 Never found any problem in entering text!! plus it has all the keyboard features including from predective, next predictive word to the swipe options!!
Display 10/10 Display is best i the class!! The density is just awesome!! Really enhanced colours!! Thanks HTC for such a beautiful display!!
Battery 9/10 Battery is good... can be even better.. But surely the power saver mode saves the day for me!!
