I use HTC desire it was great phone ever but once you have a problem that phone has useless of Battery problem and charging problem if the user safety should must if u use carefully it works wonderfully.

  • basicuser123

I had it for more than three years which it worked great. After hitting the three year mark, it started to slow down, but nothing that can not be tolerated. For a basic user, nothing to fancy, works just great!
