I just bought it in Pakistan. Great Phone. I am bored of same Samsung and Huawei phones. A great change for Android lovers believe me. Camera is OK and so is Battery.
No NFC in India versions. =(
MT6795 is in other countries, in India its MT6753, Which results in :
Lags in Games like Shadow Fight 2 and
No 4K recording, or even playback. -_-
HTC used to give killer sound in headsets (I've had Desire 501 which was hilarious) but this one is pretty much ordinary. :-/
Back gets finger stains immediately (in black color, i donno about others).
OIS at times feels like distorting the image while moving (a particular part of image/video looks moving even when phone shaking very minor).
Sim #2 doesnÂ’t supports 4G
No plans for Marshmallow update yet (18th Sept, 2016)
Battery is not so bad, no big deal for those who r familiar with HTC devices.
Expensive??? nah! this is fair price for a HTC device.
Plastic Body (well i dont even want a Metal body, feels kinda TIN-CAN in hands)
Slim and light weight.
Front facing Stereo Boomsound Speakers with Dolby audio, which make music and videos really come alive.
Built n Design r Premium.
Nice Gestures, really keeping up the pace with Huawei, Lenovo and such other brands offerings.
Front camera, arguably world's best.
Dedicated SD Cad slot, and no pin is required to open the SIM and SD Card bay, its a flap.
Flawless in general and daily use.
HTC Music player, which lets u update Album Art and Lyrics also for most of the songs.
Nice inbuilt Image Editor.
*I might b missing some Pros and/or Cons
I donno whats wrong but there r very few reviews and videos of this phone on web, hope somewhat this might help.
