Pathetic battery! Why so long - 146.9 mm?? Compare with Xiaomi Redmi 3, also a 5 inch display but only 139.3 mm in length, not to mention 4100 mAh battery.
Htc always made premium phones on the outside, like Desire Z, wow what a build, the metal was thick dnd strong, the Z-hinge was genius, i never before or after ghad such a premium built device. BUT... the interior and software was extremely poor, no updates camevto fix even the most serious flaws, it would die whennon standby and battery had to be pulled, many times a day. Do beeare pf the premium shell, htc makes the worst phones.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2016According to me the design of sony are the best. Bore with Sammy design/apple and apple copies... moreyou are right. I apologize for poor choice of words. i meant pioneering in phone design. of course pioneering means they do(and had done) a lot of things for first time_which can seen good or bad as perspective changes .
I don't see how this is a great design.
So many wasted space for the bezel. This is just HTC recycling their old Desire and selling it as new.
Even Samsung is doing better by making their budget lineups (the On and J series) to feel new and premium.
Even the Taiwanese are not buying HTC. HTC is really in deep trouble. Their days are numbered.
redmi 2 = 8mp/2mp camera so this phone is not copycat. get your facts right

One day I will buy htc desire, but that day will be very late, in that day htc had been already sold to Microsoft...and I will longing Nokia and Htc...
SH.T, 23 Nov 2016HTC is true leader in design of Handsets.With those black borders..?
MS, 23 Nov 2016Sony is the leader, but HTC is atleast far beyond Samsung (considering majority of releases).aluminium unibody, shape of antenna bands, dual camera(basically three things defining today phones).and if someone knows please say which phone used touch sensitive buttons for all its navigation first. sony was not and is not a leader in phone design(never been first in anything of phones).
Snapdragon 400 and adreno 305 why is htc hiding it ? Old processor !
htc has unique design in both software and hardware. but nowadays they using outdated chip set, (400, 810). At least they want to pick configuration from competitors.
2200 mAh battery?? Hey 2012 called, they want their battery back. You get a lot more just with a Motorola Moto G4.

Huawei Enjoy 5s (GR3) has almost the same specs, the price should not surpass $200.
