This phone is absolutey shocking and I've wasted a good amount of money on this phone. My freind recommended it to me as a good cheap phone but next time I will read internet reviews. Firstly the camera quality is horrible and it has no flash which isn't that big a deal but I would have liked flash as this is what the vast majority of phones have nowadays as a basic. Secondly the screen sensitivity drives me mad. It randomly does random things you don't tell it to e.g when witing a text it clicks on random letters weirdly and that makes any typing task triple the amount of time it should take. I tried a sceen cover to see if that helped and to be honest it did and their were less issues but still a few like the one I've already mentioned happened. Also regulary a message comes up saying to restart your phone hold the volume up and the power button. I tried restarting my phone and again when I was on the screen unlock it came up again. The message stayed on the screen until it was restarted which made it impossible to actually access anything on the phone. Luckily this wasn't every single time but still did drive me livid as all phones actually let you into the phone.
But on the positive side the data does goes relativley fast out and about and I do have 4G on the phone and when playing downloaded apps the game doesn't really lag much. Finally the phone would be nicer with more memory but to me that isn't a huge problem.
Dan, 04 Aug 2015I plan to soon buy it, after reading lots of comments on several videos it looks alright. I do... moreI've owned one for a few months now I had lost a really expensive Samsung and the price of this one was hard to beat. However I was disappointed in finding out later there were no flash but exceptional microphone I swear not once has it ever not understood exactly word for word what I've. I think for the money it would be hard to beat
I HATE THIS PHONE! I don't know if it's just me, but I was having so many problems with the touchscreen. Sometimes it didn't even sense my fingers, other times it would just do things alone as if it were posessed. I was loosing my mind. Needed a lifetime to write one text message. In addition there is NO FLASH.. the pictures are of horrible quality. The sound is good. But all in all it's a terrible phone in my opinion. I was so satisfied with the previous HTC i owned, thought I was going to stick with HTC for a while.. changed my mind. It's a shame I hadn't read the reviews before purchasing it.

big ced, 11 Jul 2015This phone is a piece of shit. Make sure there is no moisture on your hands or your phone will... moreI plan to soon buy it, after reading lots of comments on several videos it looks alright. I dont care about camera/camera flash all i care about is the apps and even if it doesnt have much storage i can buy a SD card so all in all it seems like a good phone
This phone was kinda disappointing compared to other phones its price range. Although it has the same specs with other phones its price range, the camera was horrible and there was no flash.
When I got this phone I was very excited since I finally replaced my outdated iPhone 3gs. At first there was no problems, but as time went on things started to change. My phone storage started to run out, and I could barely download any apps. I had to buy an SD card that had 8gb of space on it in order for my phone to keep going. Also, the camera was extremely disappointing, a camera worse than my 3gs. The phone also had no flash, so I couldn't take a photo at night. Also, the phone started to do things often by itself eg. typing random letters when texting, and trying to text a decent message was a pain. One major problem is that other phones the same as its specs have already upgraded to the latest 5.0 lollipop update, but htc just forgot about it. I can see why. Also, the screen would keep getting dirty, and I constantly had to clean my phone. Whenever I'm downloading apps, I had to micromanage my phone in order for it to keep downloading. However, on a positive note, it does quite well in video games, and does a better job at gaming than an iPhone 4s. It's also very fast, and I haven't had any lag problems at all.
In conclusion, if you're wanting to buy a phone that is under 200, don't buy this phone. It is a bad phone, and I don't even understand why HTC would even consider making a phone that doesn't even have flash. Buy a Motorola moto g instead.
I honestly despise this phone. First chance I get, I'm throwing it in the trash can and getting an operational phone. First off, there's no flash...eh whatever, not a big deal, right? No, since there is more problems with the camera. Always takes blurry photos, and makes photos overall look horrific. Also, the screen always goes crazy, and does things on it's own. It reacts to even a small breath I take. And with this, it ignores your input. Mind of it's own. Not a good thing when you try apps like Temple Run, which the phone makes practically unusable. Texting someone is impossible, and it always mutes or hangs up on every call. Only thing it's good for is audio. And to top it all off, the company FORCED me to get this phone, And trade in my other, working phone. All in all, DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE!
I personally like the HTC everything works fine for me. Only one thing I don't like about it is that it don't have a flashlight which sucks cause my other HTC did
Great phone! Very fast, no lag, excellent audio quality, HTC Sense is best android skin. Good build quality , very solid. Screen is good, better then most Sony phones.Battery long lasting.Only thing bad about phone is no camera flash, if its important to someone.
Wow I was about to buy one now but I decide to search info about this HTC and I see u guys al ur comments and I step back tanks guys I thing this is the best way to no about guality.
I am incredibly disappointed from this smartphone. The plastic it is made of is very prone to scratches. Without ever being dropped it has a crack near the headphone jack. Screen goes crazy A LOT. The camera is horrible - even in good light it shoots blurry photos full of noise; the lack of flash kills it completely. The front camera will make sure to take the most ugly selfie possible.Nearly One year after it's release there is no update to Lollipop. It doesn't have LED notifications. Also it's bulky and heavy. Could've been much better.
Okay I have had the phone for 3 months+
It was free. (Virgin Canada)
Can't complain except for camera flash, and virus apps that ALL phones seem to have.
Worst phone I have ever owned, needless to say this is going back, and I'll just get a oneplus one or oneplus 2

So I just bought this phone on a whim because my LG Volt recently disappeared... I am HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!! I've had this phone for about 3 hours now & the ONLY thing I like about it is the fact that I can change the font and the screen resolution looks great. Both cameras are nice (Only in a HIGHLY lit room) but because it has no flash, pictures don't come out so well. It is definitely super sensitive to touch, so you have to use a finger vs a thumb (which I'm used to) I really should have researched better on this phone, but it was the sale that sold me (only $60). Needless to say this phone will be going back ASAP!
I've had this phone since November of 2014, I've had to reset this phone about 5 times because my camera would not turn on, the phone doesn't adapt to new chargers unless you hold it a certain way, the phone is very sensitive to moist fingers which sucks because my hands get very sweaty. The camera sucks both back & front, who makes a camera WITHOUT FLASH? I wish they would recall these phones it was a waste of money. I wish I hadn't fucked up my iPhone, I wish I didn't decide to go back to shitty HTC.
