no front camera
HTC you miss the target, Serious-mature user will go for 8X or similar, less serious - young will go for something with front camera (look other mobile manufacturer) for same or less price, and, like lumia 620, with NFC (it's cool to transfer something on the fly with touch on other phone)

Anonymous, 04 Dec 2012512mb ram is to low. we need minimum 768mb ram. 512mb ram is very common since almost two yrs.... moreA Windows 7 or Windows 8 laptop can run on 2 gig of ram. So what makes you think a phone needs 1 or 2 gig ram?? It doesn't if the software is right unlike laggy power hungry Android. Android needs that much ram Windows phone doesn't.
why windows phone HTC model has
no memory cards and has an internal
memory, I think it is less attractive.
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2012Than give 2 GB or more of RAM and also 4 or 8 Cores CPU in Windows Phones, and you will see if... morelol, then buy Alienware, not phone! we are talking about the small diferences, u typed: WHY NOT 1 GB RAM? - i said 512 for WinMo is enough FOR NOW. maybe in the future we will have phones with 12 gb of ram. all i wanna say is, try to use android phone with 1 gigs of ram and try to use WInMo with 512 mb ram and u will see who is faster :)

512mb ram is to low. we need minimum 768mb ram. 512mb ram is very common since almost two yrs. its not enough by today's standards n will get outdated very soon. even for Windows its not enough.
Dear people that keep suggesting Android, Blackberry and iPhone...why would someone be researching a Windows phone if they wanted another platform? Your comments are wasting a lot of thread space for people that actually want an intelligent opinion on the operation of the new Windows device.
get the nexus 4 instead. Much MUCH higher specs and so much apps and customization options. Equally important in my book. Leaving it stock isn't too shabby either, and you're guaranteed OS upgrades straight from Google. IMHO, MS really did customers a big disservice when the past gen phones like Nokia 900 (which is still relatively new) couldn't be upgraded to WP8. I was abot to buy one for my second line. Thank God I didn't.
Bhavikkkkkkkkk, 25 Nov 2012i wanna know that in terms of all features like android,1 ghz processor,camera quality,video r... moreu can only get s advance among those 4 @ this budget. I sugges u XPERIA U, HTC desire x, XPERIA J, lumia 800 BlackBerry curve 9360. u can also check d prices of HTC desire v HTC desire sv etc etc.
Htc why do you have to mess things up by putting just 4gig of internal memory.8 would have been ok for 2012 standards. Lack of FFCis also a minus but I can live with it except that it got me wondering how well Skype is gonna work on this device since its integrated into the OS.

Three of your choices are Android phone, while one is a Win 8 phone. Decide on the OS first before u decide on the phone
Lack of front cam doesn't bother me one bit !
How many video calls does one ever make anyways ? Firstly, the other party needs to have a 3G phone, a 3G plan activated, a phone with front cam and then, not to forget, willingness to let him/her see u while u talk !
I for one don't want people to see me when I talk to them .....
As for the privacy of your room and talking to your gf/bf, a simple desktop PC with skype works just fine. Video calling on the move is just a mere sham.
I would be a bit worried about the lack of removable battery though. A friend of mine used to have Sony Xperia Mini and once he had to wait 8 hrs for the battery to discharge when the phone hanged !! It wouldn't switch off or restart in any possible way ...
