I am reading the comments: some people claims of low speed of cpu and low camera pixel and so on, that this is expensive than others like lg or samsung. you know that taiwan hardware is the best compare to lg or samsung or apple.
People this is a phone for pocket not a tablet or pc or a ... just for some games some email check or sms or calling.
why you think that we need a powerful hardware then we make our softwares heavyer. and this circle is continued...
this actually a quad core handset
i think the price is ok
the problem is the gpu
$500 for a Snapdragon 200, 8GB and QHD screen handset? are you kidding me? HTC
really HTC?? maybe they need to look at competition more closely... midrange dual-sim samsungs, sonys and chinese oems released earlier this yr.
In East Europe price is 500 Euro.
Never HTC, never , never.....
had this phone had a dual or quad core I wud have bought it. I like this screen size. it has 1gb of ram which is gr8, it just needs a better processor
im a htc`s fan but i reject this price..
i prefer one x+ easily over this ..
maybe desire 600 has a amazing design but one x is soooo beautiful too plus that sense 5 will come to one x+ soon with blink feed and much more cpu and spc then desire 600.
maybe htc must tag it for 300-350$
Those complaining about the price should note that in russia galaxy s4 has a price of $970 against 650$ elsewhere around the world... So the price of snapdragon 600 would be around $300 for rest of the world... Russia is way too expensive
htc will never learn from it's mistakes who will buy this crap even nexus 4,optimus 4xhd,even the s3 is cheaper right htc phones are just too expensive they are tring to price like apple but it is not working.
LOL..! Here in India HTC one x+ is available @ $ 473 @ Snapdeal.com...:)
My nexus 4 eat devices like this for breakfast....and its cheaper.like someone said below:it seems htc trying to go down even faster...
With this price-tag for a device that has a cortex A5 SOC, qHD display, only 7,2 Mb/s HSDPA, there is no wonder that HTC is going down (or has a strategy to end it fast?). Even the "old" nexus 4, which is in a completely different league, is cheaper (speaking of the retail price, fixed by LG and not by Google)and can be purchased from any store (or even supermarket)
Wuchko, 27 May 2013500€ for this. WTF are they thinking?This is Russia baby, where everything is 2-3 times overpriced.
specificaton in good,but in price tag agaist Galaxy Grand it is too High and battrey is lower about 300 mah .
Ha ha htc!!! You ll never learn from your mistakes! Rs. 28000 for this crap??
