U have this phone for about one and half year. It is beautiful design, it runs wery fast, dont have lags and blocks. Every app or game I have installed works fine. I instal wp 8.1 one mount ago, and it is great. Now apps and games can be installed on memory card, which is great. Only problem is, there is no Cortana for htc outside US, no meter what do( change regional setings, language or keyboard).

This is one the worst phones I have ever purchased. The problems are driving me crazy. Every time I copy a new file, there are multiple copies of the same. I am not able to make a single software update because there is an unknown "other" folder that takes up 1.8 GB. I cannot access phone memory from any desktop, and I have tried it on Windows 7 and 8, and even XP. The keypad suddenly stops functioning leaving me unable to call and disconnect calls. The phone has now started heating up, for no obvious reason. The worst thing is that I have not been able to install a single app, as only 10 MB storage is available. That means I can't update my software, back up anything or do the normal things that everyone is supposed to do with a smart phone like this one. I constantly keep getting 800703,8007032, 8007043 error messages, and the even the HTC guys have no idea what that is.
I have made a very very big mistake by buying this phone, and I will never buy a Windows phone again.

All you need to do is to register for the Developer Review Program (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets...d-cortana).I'v­e already updated and loving it. Now you can install your apps in the SD card which is a huge plus considering the 8S has only 4GB of internal storage.

Don't buy this, we will not guess when it will hangout. I am using this more than a year, I had reset two times due hangout or two slow. Better we can buy user friendly brand like S'sung. Because we can remove battery when it hangout to avoid overheating or battery loss its power.

Well, I had very few apps installed since its my backup phone. But I did factory reset after the update was complete so start from scratch. But if you wipe the phone and it stays on the HTC logo for over 10 min, just press the power button and turn it off and back on. And it will power on as new. After that I set everything to the SD Card, and you can install so much more that way, it doesn't use the internal memory at all!
