Ive had my HTC Desire since 2015. Has always worked great, both in heat. cold and it has survived being drowned in water. But the poor internal memory of 4 gb makes it har to have apps. You really need to carefully choose which ones you want since you cant have many. I thought it would be possible to put them in the SD card, but its not. Only to a small extent. So I would recommend people to buy one with at least 16 GB minimum.
I bought it from The Android Shop, Koramangala, Bangalore in September 2013. EMIE 3576540511522970. From beginning I faced the problem " Sim card not detected". Restart the phone and it detects the SD card and this goes on. Android shop, when I complained, replaced the SD card. Just on completion of a year November 2014, the phone collapsed, it won't boot. The HTC service center reset the whole software. The warranty was over. I continued to have multiple problems every now & then. In February 2015, suddenly one day all apps started shutting down on their own and the phone shut down. I gave it for repair to the authorised service centre again on 31 03 2015. Till today, they haven't been able to repair it. For past 60 days it's at the TVS HTC centre. I call twice a week and everytime I am assreu that in two-three days it'll be rest right.
Please do not buy HTC phones, bad hardware and worst possible service. My 24,939/- gone down the drain. Never, never go for this ridiculous brand HTC.

Got the hand on for HTC 500.
found the phone screen is quite large
also the internal memory to be used is 2.95 Gb(Total 4 Gb).
camera photo is also quite good.
only the price is high 20,000 (India)
its of Rs.20000 ...I think htc is just kidding....it is good but who will spend that kind of so much money for the WVGA display...kick off for this.htc
Its superb Phone....i like the design better than Galaxy mega and stupid Lumia...
A phone with a price tag of 20000 cannot be a mid range phone.HTC kidding us.
For 20000 you can go for 2012 flagship one x which is way better than this which costs an extra 2500.
It's worth of it's price.
