htc not learning any lesson??
05 Oct 2013 By Rinomi Boitlung Fanai On flipkart.com

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. ncomeon 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,
