Everything about this phone is phenomenal, thanks HTC! It does everything I need it to and more, it can take stunning pictures and display them on its crystal clear screen, music is also great with its build in beats audio and free beats headphones and the every day usage is brilliant!

Very satisfied.

I have this phone for a few days, and have tested it a lot. Here is my opinion on it.
The first amusing thing is the display. It's so colorful and bright!
The sound system is shocking great! If you're a music fan, you're gonna love this.
The camera is really good. Some noises in some pictures may be present, but it's all right. Comparing with an HTC Desire, this one's camera is a pro :) plus the HD video recording!
The UI speed and everyday usage and Internet satisfy my needs and I'm using my friend a lot!
Battery lives pretty long for a smartphone with such big display.
The only con for me, is the feel of it in hand. The back plastic is uncomfortable, especially comparing with my old Hero...

Build quality 7/10 Well the phone is rather big and the back material does feel a little uncomfortable. Also I'm afraid of dropping it. Think it will get some scratches.
Reception 10/10 Didn't have any problem with this.
Call quality 10/10 No problem with this either.
Internet 9/10 Internet browsing is really greate.
Multimedia 10/10 The music and video playback is just awesome. The speaker sound quality is really shocking! The headphones are good too. Beats sound system tells everything :)
Camera 9/10 Camera is really nice. Sometimes photos are made with some little noise, but it's all fine.
UI speed 9/10 If you're not a crazy gamer, then this phone will satisfy you. Of course HTC Sense is a little bit heavy, but it's all right.
Everyday usage 9/10 As a big lover of all Android, for me this phone is very comfortable and easy to manage. Of course some tasks are harder to perform comparing with iPhone, but if you understand the Android, you'll have no problems.
Text input 9/10 I use QWERTY and am happy with it. the text input has so many settings which is both good and bad. For an advanced user, this is great! For the others, the default settings and text prediction might be annoying, especially if you're using English keyboard to write in another language. BUT that doesn't matter for me. Text input is great!
Display 9/10 Wow! The display is amusing! The colors are great, huge screen, touchscreen is very responsive. Angle view is a little weak, but not so bad.
Battery 8/10 Due to huge display, the battery drains faster then an HTC Hero for example, but if you keep you GPS and Wi-Fi off if you don't need them, the battery will live for a few days :)


  • fast
  • great display
  • responsive
  • great camera
  • great sound


  • uncomfortable plastic back
