Perhaps in Pakistan we Pakistani can't enjoy new HTC phones but here in Karachi I bought it for 16k in used.responsible price for an amazing performer,used as primary phone for about a month and enjoyed it. Nearly no lag no battery draining ,superb ppi.

I have now used my HTC first for 4-5 months.
If you are not into latest and greatest android then it is probably the best screen size phone for anyone.
I needed:
1. Best speaker volume
2. Call recording
3. Stock android
4. Nice screen
5. Good battery backup
7. Tethering on Straight talk
6. Expandable storage

Except for point 6, all other points are covered nicely by HTC first. I am hoping to buy a backup htc first in case.

Pity that it didnt sell much otherwise we would have surely had kitkat ROMs for this by now.
I switched to a HTC one, but the call /voice recording didnt happen well, so i gave that to my wife. For tethering on straight talk, i had to edit the telephony.db file and now i can enjoy 2.5 GB of monthly thethering on 4g LTE :-)

This is almost literally the perfect phone for me.

The design is amazingly simple and minimal, which was one of the big things I was looking for. I also liked the idea of a "small" Android mid-range phone. Combine that with basically pure vanilla 4.1.2 Android, and it's a really sweet package.

Although it only has a dual core processor, it seems to be fairly responsive and quick in most everything I've done with it so far. I had a Nexus 4 for a while last year, and the HTC First does have some noticeable lag/choppiness when it comes to things like Google Maps when compared to higher-end phones such as that. The camera is also slightly below par, although in my opinion, a lot of people are spoiled with phone cameras these days. Basically, what I mean by that is this: the camera on this might be noticeably worse than flagship device cameras, but it's also probably 200x better than the dumbphone camera I was using before.

For my purposes, I pretty much just wanted a decent phone primarily for texting, calling, checking email, and the occasional web browsing or app usage. For the price (got it brand new for $135 on eBay), I think this is one of the best phones out there, especially if you're looking for a phone with vanilla Android. It's just a shame that it was never successful on the market.

Now the only thing is to port newer versions of Android to it, and maybe try to fix the camera through software tweaks. Even without those things, though, I would definitely recommend the HTC First.
