Got the phone yesterday.100% Satisfied with the phone. Good job htc.
500, 16 Nov 2013Dwnld a cmps app from mrkt. It will wrk dnt wrry..Have you tried it yourself? Some users say the phone lacks a physical compass and some others say it has, i dunno where the truth is :)
Can a (Compass Mode) be an available option on google maps with the device itself lacking a compass sensor? As far as I know, GPS won't be able to tell the direction you are facing if you are stand still without the assistance of a physical compass sensor..
Does this phone show Outgoing Call Waiting Notifications or not? If you are calling a person while that person is engaged in another call, will the phone display a (Call waiting) message? Just to be able to decide whether to keep on disturbing him or to hang up and call later..

Have you tried navigating at a very low speed? Or when you are completely stuck in a traffic jam?
That means any compass-dependent software will not work?
Guys please suggest whether to go for HTC Desire 500 or Samsung S4 mini?

I have this phone for five days now.You can not get better phone in those money.Battery excelent for quad core and 4,3 display,but i use only ONE SIM CARD (mine is dual sim).I am very satisfied with it.I had SG2 before.Only disapointment: no compass but you can still navigate without it.Amazing finnish(have black one).Droped once,still working fine.
A piece of good news for you guys, the dual sim version has a built in compass and probably the single SIM version too as stated below..
Juliaa, 15 Nov 2013I see only blue dot..That's really bad news, the phone doesn't have a compass sensor then :(
Thanks for your reply anyway..
The worst smart phone that i have ever. First of all you cant add anything on the tool bar bellow. You cant erase the first page of the screen and you can change it. The menu bar scrolling is up and down and not right or left and you cant change it. The service bar on top shows only the setting icon,(not even the ring tone setting). For the wifi i activate it and then i have to enter settings to see available wifi networks, the worst speaker ever, i cant hear the sound if someone is speaking near you and you are watching a video. Also you cant put the phone on the table and listen music cause the speaker is bellow and you cant hear anything, you can put it up down if you dont afraid to scratch the screen. From the settings menu if you want to delete some of youre appl, you have to do the hole prositure every time cause when you erase one the display transfer to the main screen so you have to choose again setting, applications... dont worth the money that i spend, Worst buy i had made ever
My old htc wildfire has corning gorilla display protection. What about desire 500, I didn't find info about any kind of original screen protection!??
