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 ...
The HTC Desire 500 is HTC`s new mid-range phone, available for around Â£200 SIM-free, Â£180 on pre-pay and from Â£17 or so a month on contract. It has a 4-inch screen, a decent overall spec and a design that far exceeds what we`re used to at this price. On paper it`s a very promising phone, though like most mid-range phones it now has the formidable Nexus 5 to contend with, which - although Â£100 more - is a tempting alternative given it`...
Pros: Nice, classy design, Bright and clear screen, Decent general performance,
Cons: Camera slightly inconsistent, Battery life a little weak, Mediocre built-in speaker,
Also giving it dual-SIM capability, HTC takes on the likes of Micromax, Karbonn and Lava (and even Sony) with the Desire 500, luring price sensitive users who want to use two connections on their smartphones. Build/ DesignCutting the crowd of 5-inch plus phablets, the HTC Desire 500 is a rather compact smartphone featuring a 4.3-inch display. The phone fits easily in one's hands and pockets, and is light in weight. It's made of good quality plast...
The HTC Desire 500 is a relatively inexpensive mid-range phone aimed at the type of buyer who wants something solid, but not necessarily cutting edge. We’re seeing many phones of a similar ilk these days, whether they’re scaled down versions of flagship models or they’re aggressively discounted higher-end phones like the Motorola Moto G. Given that HTC already has dipped its own toe in the mid-range waters with the l...
Pros: Great design Smart, stylish interface Beats Audio response
Cons: Poor battery life Average camera Low internal storage
Verdict: : We Desire to buy something else So, should you buy an HTC Desire 500? If you’re of the TL;DR persuasion and we’ve just caught you at the end of this review, you’re probably going to want to know if it’s as good as other...

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 ....
Overall: very good product very nice look
Overall: ( *Edited after actually buying the phone =D )
Tired of seeing reviews comparing HTC phones to other companies's devices solely based on the specification on its cover. HTC might not provide the greatest spec in the given price range, but the hands on user experience, that's an entirely different story!
Bought it few months back from a local retailer. Awesome phone indeed! The firs....
