As of 2021 this phone has became unbearably slow and it is almost impossible to have any modern apps work on it without constant sluggish performance. It doesn't really help that HTC has packed a lot of bloatware in to this phone that cannot be ...

You could maybe have HTC fix it if they nice to do it. But itll cost you. And even if u went to a shop. Those parts are hard to find i guess since pretty much not many people have an HTC these days. Its mostly LG, SAMSUNG, and iPhone.

I had this phone in grey with orange accents. At the time before 2017 i knew nothing about phones at 2017 i started to get more into the specs of the phones. I never used the camera or cared and so on but now i care about all of it.
