PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 3 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Stylish design, with a bit of bling factor - an ivory body and a gold frame running around it
  • Decent display (though resolution could have been better)
  • HTC phones have one of the cleanest UIs and are easy to understand and navigate - and also include the handy "Blinkfeed" for social media and other updates
  • The overall performance of the phone is decent and you will not encounter any issues with regular use
  • The phone also does not display any tendency to heat up, which is always good
  • Decent 13MP rear camera - is fast and comes out with some good photos, especially when the lighting is good
  • Very good speakers with Boom Sound
  • Decent battery - lasts an entire day without you having to recharge
  • Overall, the phone may be a good choice if you like the design and style of the phone and want a top-end brand

What We Didn't

  • The graphics performance of the phone is pretty average and will put off for hardcore gamers - the phone is primarily meant for users who are consuming email, videos, and movies
