HTC Desire 500 Review

0. phoneArena 05 Sep 2013, 05:16 posted on

HTC indicated it wants to go down market with its Android phones, risking to be crowded out of the exploding mid- and entry-level segments otherwise, and phones like the Desire 500 are a good indication of its strategy. The handset sports a youthful, catchy design, with internals that are a mixed bag of midrange to low-end components, all for a decent price. Will the Desire 500 succeed in its market-expansion mission the way it is built? Read on to find out...

Ummm since when does the Sony Xperia L have a weaker processor? Dual-core Krait processors are way faster than quad-core Cortex A5 processors

HTC and a removable battery excellent, err wait this is not a flag ship no wonder.

Still, it has a curvy design to it and has options, why they didn't do this with the one or others is why they are losing me, never mind them saying recently their going to focus on eastern markets.

just bought this phone, 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. well done htc :)

The capacitive buttons on the desire 500 ARE backlit. They light up only when its dark, or when the light is below a certain degree.
Bought this a few days back, EXCELLENT PHONE!!
