phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 3 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Nice, attractive dual-tone design
  • Decent display with good touch accuracy and viewing angles
  • HTC Sense UI is light, and one of the better Android skins around
  • Decent speed/performance in regular use (although gaming performance lags behind its competitors)

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The back panel has glossy plastic finish, so it attracts smudges easily
  • Average camera
  • Poor battery life
  • Has heating issues, especially with resource-heavy games
