I am currently using it and I am from India where I find myself surrounded by Samsung and Micromax users and I can say that I make them feel jealous with perfectly designed, low weighted, highly smooth and black finished HTC desire 500.It's speed is quite good and I can easily sweep in between 4-5 major applications like whatsapp, FB, angry birds, opera mini and chrome. Camera is awesome and it has made me postpone my decision of purchasing a digicam. What else one need to check? Sellers will confuse one by telling him/her about display resolutions, chipset make, and with some Einstein’s equations. Do you really need those? I mean ,really, everyone has laptop with him/her now a days. So why can’t we use them to do heavy works? Am I right? Off course I am !!! I as well as no one has to check what others are offering at this price. I believe I am using a phone which is quite trustable hardware and it is worth 20K. Surely it has weak battery but who is not having power supply in his/her house? Also its weight is too low and over all height is so adjusted that it doesn't peep out of your pocket. So it’s just awesome phone and I ,along with my 2 close friends , have purchased 3 HTC desire 500 handsets which differ in colors only. I would say prefer black one as it looks pretty high end thing. Rest is all individual’s opinion it may vary any time. Hope this review cum opinion will be helpful.

ProposedBuyer, 19 Mar 2014Does this phone has HD capability. Why Optional word used for Dual Sim, does it has dual sim ... moreI am from Pakistan, using this phone for almost 5 to 6 months now. It is an overall good mid range phone. I don't know about the "optional" dual sim thing, but my phone has only 1 slot for sim. The best thing I like about this phone is the quality of picture it takes. Graphics and effects are really good. It never hanged. Looks beautiful in hand. Black color looks cool as compared to other colors.
