Good phone for money
kentuckyloan has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I really enjoy it for my business. Good battery, light, very fast. I would recommend to camera or phone users. I highly recommend upgrade to T Mobile users. Would of the best phones on the market.
Beats Audio is okay, but camera is the bestBuild quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10

I'm the owner of this beautifully crafted mobile phone, quality of built is really stunning, screen is absolutely amazing to look at as everything is so sharp ( size of a screen is 4.3" with 540 x 960 resolution, much better than my Samsung Galaxy SII ) fast user interface and new Sence 4.0 is a real treat combined with latest Android 4.0.3. Plenty of useful apps: flashlight, notes, PDF viewer, Polaris office etc...
Best thing about it is rich, clean sound when listening your favorite music, I don't own Dr Dre (beats audio) headphones but my Sony ones are more than enough to enjoy too.
One negative thing about this device is that comes with limited memory in this case 16GB (you end up only with 9.3GB) but still enough to store your favorite music, videos etc.
Another thing is that also comes with non user replaceable battery, but I hope that is not a problem as I am sure it will last minimum 2 years or more.
Fast internet browsing, very easy to type your text messages and emails, call quality very, very good..."one hell of a mobile phone" is the last thing I should say about it!

Best yet from HTC
kingkoopa765 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Coming from a long line of HTC androids from the G1 to the Amaze, I can say I'm impressed over the first week of having this device. First thing you notice is how light and thin it is, and the crisp look of ice cream sandwich with the sense UI over it. I was a vanilla android fan from the G2 but the new sense has grown on me with the lock screen shortcuts coming in handy, and nice looking widgets. Upon testing the camera, you will be blown away by shutter speed and ability to hold it down for up to 99 continuous shots. Also to be able to record video and take still shots from it is a really cool feature. Camera quality is awesome and even better than the amaze and 4S. Everything through the menus is snappy, and there's no lag with multi tasking flipping through open apps. I havent done any intense 3D gaming yet but the screen is really nice considering having lower specs than its one X counterpart. The colors are really vivid and the blacks are very black. As a phone salesman I am pretty picky and get to use a lot of different models, but HTC has definitely came through nicely with this one series.Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

HTC is good
androidgamer has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I'm very happy with this phone. Overall it's very smooth and fluid, a painless experience. Works well. One of the speakers broke after it fell 5 feet but I can still hear calls and audio just not "stereo style" audioBuild quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

I have this phone for 2 years and it still working great with no faults at all .
it has a 4.1.1 jelly bean and sense 4+ , the music is better with beats audio built in.
the phone in this category is much better than samsung s2/s3 and iphone 4s.

I've had this phone for almost two years, and it has really held up. I really love the way the phone was built; it's nice to look at for sure. It's not the best phone I've ever owned, but it's pretty great for people who want a little more than what the low-end phones have to offer.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 8/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 8/10Battery 7/10

The lack of memory card slot isn't as big a deal as you think.
Destined2Rock has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
This phone is one word: AMAZING. The screen is so vivid and the camera is amazing! Calls are great, and it's so thin! People are saying negative things about no memory card slot and that they hate that you can't remove the battery, but it comes installed with dropbox and you get 25gb free for two years (through a promotion that HTC runs with Tmobile and Dropbox right now), so if you want to save space you can just save all of your pictures/videos/etc to dropbox and move them to your PC later! I'm in love with this phone.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
