Great review as usual, it would be 9.999 if this phone has unique 4 SIM card support.

Hmm.. I was expecting better. With their current financial problems HTC cannot afford a flawed mid ranger because so many models in this price level are very good. They cannot succeed only with the One, they need an entire strong lineup. Maybe the funky design will sell though.

Xperia sp eats it at this price point. Heck, its even cheaper

Definitely does! It's about $100 cheaper. Just the better screen and stereo speakers that's not found in the SP.
For that price point, i better get the Xperia ZR or Nexus 4...that's how you put a quad core processor in a device.
HTC would've made more justice to the phone if it came with dual core S4 pro at 1.5 Ghz. This is just plain stupid...
Don't tell me it's aimed for crowds who are looking for a economy phone cause this phone went just the opposite.

SP has poor viewing angles but much higher resolution... so not even the screen is not much worse.

All the human that i know are always looking the screen head on, some of them even use “Anti Spy Privacy Screen Protector Film” wich ruin the viewing angle

Even Xperia TX/T/V is way better than this junk.

I think this one, remember that this has 8GB of internal storage and SD card slot, the one s only has 16GB of internal storage and no SD card slot, desire 600 is quad core, one is dual, desire has much better speakers, they have almost same screens, desire has a better front facing camera and if I am not wrong, desire is just HSDPA on the other hand one s is HSDPA+, so keep all in mind and it is up to you!!!

The desire 600 is one of the best designed HTC phones. I like the red and silver combination

Wtf, my year old OneXL walks over this pretty easily.

Cleaning the closet out HTC?
Should throw some of that crap, that won't move in garage sales, out.

So Desire 600 is better than Xperia ZR? WTH...
If same phone is given to 2 different PA persons then review would come differently.

Because of Overpricing strategy at htc,it forces the consumers to go for samsung.
It's time to wake up htc!
In 2012,htc lost its battle by overpricing and Poor battery performance in their smartphones.
In 2013,htc lost its battle only by selling at Higher Prices in all price Range.
Hope,they will learn lesson by their own Mistakes.

This Phone is not worth for this price range, There are many drawback in the phone which cannot be filled by external apps from android market.Battery is worst, Sound is average.Apps cannot be installed in SD card, And also there is no file manager in it. Status bar is empty, generally there should be wireless on off, Bluetooth on off, sound profile and mobile data on off should be available, but all this are in widget here, you need to add as widget in home screen.
Don't know on what basis the phone is priced as 25K, we can get far better phone in this price.
