I bought this phone about Nov.2012. My experience is also not good. Initially had problem with sim 1 slot. it suddenly used to show there is no sim. so i interchanged the cards in slots. then whatsapp, i have to keep deleting the images and videos. else it just gets hanged. Within last one and half year, i need to reinstall whatsapp nearly every two - three days. some times 3 times in a day. and continuously clean cache. now slot 2 is gone dead. I have tried calling their local customer care centre but no one picks up the phone.

I don't know why am I getting comments like desire v going dead! I bought it at 26 march 2013. even I got issues like slow performance nd all. here r some tips in making it faster
* go to setting>apps>all: select the apps which u don't like nd cont be deleted and disable it from the option provided insides.
NOTE: if u don't get disable option it means its a system app. nd avoid disabling apps with android logo nd names starting wit .com

still slow? update ur software from the service nd try the step above.
*going dead might be cous of overheating. this is generally when u do task while charging. if u see ur phone overheating cool it, leave it alone, it will help.

well its been 1 year 4 me nd its really fast nd nice 4 me. without ROOT

mail me if u have any question or wana know bout apps to make ur device fast shonrock05@gmail.com

I am so much dissatisfied with HTC mobile- HTC Desire V which I have bought in month of march 2013. It became dead (Turn off & turning on) in month of March 2014 only which means immediately after 1 year. Within the period of 1 Year also i had problem of slow response in opening of applications, contact list, massages etc. Within this period I had to visit service center three times for one or another issue of mobile. Even more inconvenience because of availability of service centers, there are only two service centers in metropolitan city like Pune 7 those are also not in central or prior location but at one sides of city which are camp & Pimpary. even there working hours are 10am to 6 pm means same as normal working hours & Sunday close so for working people it's so inconvenient & difficult to visit there. attitude of staff there is also not that much passive. so I am so much dissatisfied with overall experience of HTC 7 will refer my contacts for not choosing HTC mobile.

I'm not satisfied with this phone. The video recording quality is suck, It also re start by itself, Quality of sound is not good, Dead pixel spot are present at maximum brightness, Expensive phone without even having front camera for skype video calling, During idle mode the screen turns ON by itself. I just gave this phone to my 9 year old son as a his toy collection..

The life of this phone is just one year. Just 10 days after completing warranty period the phone became dead. Not switching on, not charging. Basically the motherboard is gone. Don't buy this if you want to use for long time.

Simply the worst mobile from HTC.

After just completing the 1 year of formal warranty, it will not work. Yes it's true. Mobile get dead and you cannot view even battery charging indication.

In my case, my mobile's warranty was just finished off and after 2 days mobile was dead. No power ON/ Charging indication. After one week of submitting at HTC service center,called back stating "your mobile's mother board corrupted and need Rs 8000/- for repairing". One cannot invest Rs 8000/- for repair while they are getting it for Rs 7999/- with vodafone connection in open market.

So friends, say strictly no to HTC brands if you are more concerned about long life. If u buy it just seeing by looks, u can imagine the hell after one year.

HTC has some serious catching up to do if it wants to compete with the likes of samsung.
I have been using the Desire V since last 6 months. The phone looks very good and the GUI is great but the lack of ram in this phone kills it.
The phone is very very slow and it restarts automatically while using both sim's.
The automatic restart wont happen at all if only one sim is inserted .
Shocked with HTC QC. Will sell it ASAP.
