I've been a fan of HTC for a long time now. Although not everything is perfect I do prefer phones that don't spy on your activity life I found Samsung once doing.
So the HTC Desire 20 Pro, I've been using it a few weeks now, unlike someone else who moaned it didn't come with loads of apps in it, I transferred all my old apps across and it works just fine for me. Only one annoyance was an app that didn't work with Android 10, but I got round it.
Yes downside only one speaker also no notification LED, I live with it, it's no big deal. The speaker is much louder than my old Desire 12+, which incidentally has failing battery problems now. Irony use the fast charge on this phone as that kills the battery quicker. I charge it up when it drops below 10% and it lasts at least three days before I need to recharge it. Even after watching two movies it doesn't drain it too quickly. Been a long time since a battery performed this well.
Only niggle at moment is a app for s causing my speakerphone not to work, works fine for a while after a restart, but the refuses to.

Jack 3.5 is useful, the phone is not hanging and all applications work smoothly. Very good battery of 5Ah, only disappointment is only 1 speaker, I'm used to the stereo dual speaker of HTC. Other than that I would buy it again good price for the quality.
I was looking to replace my old HTC, not wanting to spend much more than 200 euros or less than 300€, I didn't find any great alternatives in the competition. With a week of use I can say that I was not disappointed. I didn't expect the camera to work so well, there are certainly better, but for the price I doubt it. The screen is very good,beautifull colors, the phone is very solid and robust. It does the basic things of a phone very well, quality of calls very good. Still the bonus of having a radio, NFC, and a very reasonable quality headphone output, this for an audiophile. It has all the important modern functions. Some typical HTC software is missing, or some additional photo functions like RAW or slow-motion, but I also rarely used them. The battery is exceptional. I tried a GT racing game and it plays perfectly. For me, given the price-quality ratio, the best phone of 2020.
Still very satisfied of it. Quite fast. Good sound quality but mono speaker out. Using it a lot with BT headset, with excellent rendering. Excellent battery and IPSLCD screen. FM radio very appreciable. Cameras also. Rear side is very classy. No 5G!? I don't care for now.
Have been using the Desire 20 Pro for a few weeks. Thought it was great so far. Any fellow user facing connection issues with your mobile network? I have 5 bars network in the notifications above, but I see a slash across it. Changed SIM cards, and its the same. (SIM cards work in other phones.)
I have been a HTC fan for the past 12 years. I bought it from HTC UK for its good Hardware, but immediately disappointed and had no choice but to sent it back to HTC for its very poor software.
software is a very cheap "Google" phone dominant.
-No Music Player app,
-No Video Player app,
-No Gallery app,
-No independent Contact app,
-No slow motion or Time-laps or any other features with CAMERA.
Contact syncs all the time with Google account, if you log in to your Google account to be able to download apps from Google Play, everything syncs automatically with that account.
No music player, it has "YouTube Music", so you have to download another app to listen to your own music. YouTube Music syncs all your music with Google's YouTube account.
AND, NO GALLERY ! Why ? Annoyingly you have to go to camera and click on photos taken tab to look at your gallery, very awkward.
It does have FM Radio app which is good and a bonus nowadays.
Camera is always wide-angle as preset (.....1.0x ......) it takes time to get hang of it, but you cannot make it wide ( e.g. to 0.5 x).
Torch LED at the back is a single LED and is very dark and weak.
Headphone is very cheap one, like one of those that you get free on "tour-buss", so don't bother.
Flipping to the left brings that "feed" page that you cannot change to what you want. It has been "News Republic" in HTC handsets for ages, I didn't tried it, so might be developed to get BBC, CNN, ABC etc. not sure .
There are plenty more to write about later.
