kudos, 15 Mar 2013hey guys please give me a fair view... i'm thinking of buying this phone... how r the features... morehey kudos,I'll give you my honest review what I think about the phone.
I upgraded from the htc desire s which I loved and at first I was really dissapointed,the colors on the screen looked washed out,the browser sucked,games like shadowgun dead zone,while set in ultra high graphics,had a lot of hiccups.
a few days ago I recieved an updated to 4.1.2 JB,and it really turned my exprience from bad to great.
browsing-the browser is blazing fast,faster than the SGS3,the scrolling is butter smooth as well is the pinch to zoom gesture.double tap works great and the text resize works smooth.so browser gets 5\10 in ICS and 10\10 after JB update
screen-also the image of the screen improved alot,the colors look way way better,more livable,fonts and icons looks sharper and blacks are deeper.very good drivers for the screen in 4.1.2,so screen gets 4\10 on ICS and 8\10 after JB update
gaming-shadowgun dead zone,ultra high graphics ran with hiccups in ICS,with JB is butter smooth,also same story with dead trigger,hiccups with ICS,butter smooth in JB,with highest graphics settings,so gaming gets 7\10 in ICS and 9\10 after JB update.
sound quality,music-I use poweramp as in my opinion beats audio in nothing more than just a gimmick,compared to my old desire S which I really loved and in my opinon is one of the best handset in terms of audio quality(forget about static tests and graphs,they only tell half the story)the bass isnt that great,it isnt deep and punchy as my old desire s(using poweramp of course,NOT stock player)treble is average and volume levels are lower,also distortion is higher,so in terms of audio quality-which hasnt changed in JB update,5\10
camera-still images-6\10,HD video recording-8\10,for ICS and JB.
wifi,bluetooth and gps,in ICS the wifi took about 10 seconds to connect,in JB-3,4 seconds to my home router,great improvement,gps with 3g off using IGO my way is fast to lock,so connectivity-10\10
pros:blazing fast browing,great gaming performance,great GPS,great ergonomics,great bulit quality,good battery life.good HD video recording.
cons:camera,sound quality is just average,beats audio is one piece of crap!
hope it helps.

This is an excellent phone.. got mine last month, but does anybody know how to activate the LTE? it doesn't have LTE on network selection but according to its specs it has an LTE capability, or I just need an LTE network to use this function? Or could it be that some unit of this phone doesn't have LTE?

Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and Sense 4+ upgrade is available in Europe for the LTE model(C525u).
Overall phone is very light and nice to touch.
User experience is fast, no lags or hiccups.
Waited for 3 years for a high spec 4 inch phone like this, from htc with compass,g glass,sd slot,front cam, usb port below not on side.i love htc bcoz of sense ui. htc has no plan to india, afraid this wil dominate other mid range htcs.
