This phone disappointed me so much


I will start by saying the performance of the phone is great, except that your phone will get really hot with prolonged use of apps (especially game apps). Now the bad.. I have always loved HTC since I get the HTC one X. The Aluminum I loved the weight...

Worst phone ever


The display is fine. Apps don't run smoothly and not having a normal headphone jack is way more annoying than you think the connector thing they give you doesn't actually work. Google maps isn't working now and it wont connect to the new bluetooth...

Poor Customer Service


Bought this phone to replace my old iphone. Very disappointed when i received it, it wasn't what I expected, didn't think it's not as streamline as my old iphone. The interface is quite intuitive but still not up there. A big issue with this phone is...

Back to form for HTC.


I have had HTC phones since the HTC Diamond that ran on Windows Mobile. I am definitely loyal to the brand as I believe their innovations have been fantastic over the years. Having said that, I know when they have missed the mark. In terms of getting...
