HTC indicated it wants to go down market with its Android phones, risking to be crowded out of the exploding mid- and entry-level segments otherwise, and phones like the Desire 500 are a good indication of its strategy. The handset sports a youthful, catchy design, with internals that are a mixed bag of midrange to low-end components, all for a decent price. Will the Desire 500 succeed in its market-expansion mission the way it is built? Read on ...
Overall: this i a good item until i heard about its price, i was expecting price range of 15k - 17k, because sony xperia m and galaxy core have the same specs with price range of 13k. its well known that htc tend to priced their product a tad high than other company but 20k is not what i expect, at all. if price is reduced to around 16k, i will still choose over xperia m or galaxy core, but i am not gonna buy desire 500 for 20k, not worth the price. if you are ready to shell out 21k, then consider lumia 820, xperia sp, xperia v, xperia c, galaxy grand, galaxy mega. if money is not an issue for me, than i would def buy this or wait for desrie 601 to be released, around 5k more than desire 500.
comeon htc, when will i ever gonna get one of your smartphone?? i have been following this smartphone for a month and the pricing of the product dissapoints me. good luck though, u gonna need it,
