Stock ROM was slow at hell!
Tried installing CM10 on it and now it's fine! It's also overclock able.
I've used this phone for the last 4 years, no major problems. Very compact and easy to use if you only need to call and listen to music, just like me. Going for Apple now, want to try something new.
All i can say is that this phone was great only for it had no flash on camera.......
Still was a fantastic phone though
Nice phone. I got 3 from my friend (he has 2 boxes full of them), but the size, inability to (without going to http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/upgra...stall-376575 to upgrade via CyanogenMod and http://theunlockr.com/2012/06/...-htc-desire/ to get ClockWorkMod Recovery) upgrade to JellyBean, and tiny storage make this hard to recommend as a 2016 phone.
i bought it in 18000 3 years ago ... time has so much changed now in 18000 u can purchase a much better phone ... but its good and strong ... but slow as well
Using this mobile from 3 years bought for 12K, first year was excellent. now, its been slow, but still dont know why its been good.
It fall down so many times, even from train..still it is strong..very strong :)
satisfied by using for 3 years
I understand the other commentors - this phone is really slow and almost unusable in web with its original OS. You definitely have to root it and install CM. I used this guide:
CM will not make it a rocket, but at least it will be usable for daily tasks. The android browser, mail, whatsup, instagram, facebook lite, YT - working OK (programs like skype, viber etc... are to big for this phone)
I've been using this model for almost 2 years now and this is the best phone so far for me. Yes it is slow sometimes but I threw my phone on the wall (accidentally) and dropped it countless of time and till today it is working just fine.
ive got this phone the htc desire c and ive been using it on and off for the past two years and at this point in time i seriously dont reccomend this phone as someones daily driver as if you use at least a it of memory the phone lags 24/7 and is seriously annoying and im getting a new phone anyway but this phones camera peformace and display is very poor...thank you
AvgPhoneUser, 03 May 2015This phone is OK if you flash CM10. Otherwise it will lag.how to flash it? mu htc desire is lagging much even cant use whatsapp well, hw to make my mobile fast?
This laggy phone had made my life tensed, unhappy & slow but no option i am still using the same :( so friends, sincerly saying dont buy the gadget even it is free of cost.
This is probably the worst phone I ever had. It lags and gets stuck ALL the time, it is sooo painfully slow. Below average camera. I never even got to use the "beats audio" because again - it is too damn slow. I just got myself Motorola MOTO G2 and I couldn't be happier! Finally a proper smartphone! I won't be buying HTC ever again, I think HTC should have had more dignity and took this phone off the market.
