  • Easy to handle

  • Nice UI

Beware Of

  • Low end hardware
  • Sluggish performance

Incredibly smart

The phone looks pretty and has got premium feel to it. It has got a nice cover art on the back which further aids the premium looks and feel of the device. The desire series has always been targeted on the masses and it is the same story here. The HTC Sense UI looks nice and is nice to use. The device has got the beats audio logo sitting on the back of the device which means that you get really good audio experience once you plug in your headphones. The enhancements are just some software tweaks but the difference is apparent. Though the hardware is not very strong and that comes as bit of a disappointment.

The phone measures at 118.5 x 62.3 x 9.3 mm which makes it pretty small and easy to hold. One handed operations are a breeze. The phone weighs 119 gms but it does not feel much in ones hand as the size of the device is just right. The display on the device measures 4 inches and has a display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The display is crisp and would be good enough for everyday usage with a pixel density of 233 ppi to make stuff easily readable.

The connectivity options include Dual SIM support, 3G HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and micro USB 2.0. It has got 1650 mAh battery which can take you through your day with ease.


This is not a device to set benchmark scores or run high end games. But not everyone needs that. If you are looking for a device that looks nice and has got a premium feel to it without being heavy on your pocket, this is the device for you.

    i am requesting flipkart to not encourage this
