Does anyone have user experience with his gadget? Any feedback to share? I'm specifically interested whether the front facing camera works with skype or not and more about other pros and cons.
is it possible to keep all time dual sim active even when another sim using by phone call, thanks in advance
Is it possible for GSMArena to do a review of this phone? It would be much aprreciated! Thank you so kindly in advance :)))
I have dual-sim version, bought in Russia. No digital compass.
Do you know if it is possible to disable the invasive BlinkFeed (or at least to put it on a secondary desktop instead of the main desktop as in the HTC One)?
What about the (not-so-handsome) glossy back cover? Is it scratch-resistant? Isn't it too slippery? Is it anti-fingerprint?
And, again, what about the compass? In the specifcations, GsmArena mentions it has a compass. htc.com itself does not mention a compass!
What do you think about its Android version (4.1.2 - dated 09-oct-12 !!) Isn't it outdated? Can we expect an upgrade to 4.2.2?
With HTC Car (seems to be available on the Desire 500 as seen on some videos), does it provide voice dialling (offline)?
Are there limitations due to the only-two dedicated keys instead of the traditional three Android keys?
Except those potential issues, it seems a very nice phone.
Thank you in advance,

If I buy this phone in Russia, will it have international warranty? I am from Spain and I am in Moscow only for 2 weeks. Here it is a lot cheaper than the estimated price for the rest of Europe. Do you think I'll be able to set the system language to Spanish/English?

What about the compass?
In the specifcations, GsmArena mentions it has a compass.
htc.com itself does not mention a compass!
Could someone check on its Desire 500 in Google Maps application if the current position marker is a blue dot (no compass available) or an arrow (compass available)?
Thank you in advance!
Here in Bulgaria the phone cost 235.19 EUR
