              the phone dropped in water, some local technicians are saying the lcd is damaged

                Battery issue occurred within 6 months. Phone turns off when the battery reaches 50%. Google account syncing is delaying, it does not happen immediately even if the phone is on WiFi.

                  This is solid device.

                  I've bought it second hand, first man used it for 2 years, and it works solid even now.

                  Display is big, that is great for multimedia. Phone is noy slow, messenger, youtube, netflix, web browsing, messaging... everything works fast and fluid.

                  For outdoors it's not that great because brightness is not too high. But it's usable.

                  Battery life isn't actually bad, considering it's 2 years of usage. I can get around 3:30 hours of SOT.

                  Sound qualitty via the loudspeaker is okay, it has stereo speakers. Via earplugs is great.

                  Camera is probablly one of few things that are not good on this phone. Daylight shoots are okay (not good) but okay from both cameras. Night shoots are really bad.

                  Overall this device is pretty solid, if you can buy it for low price.
                  I've bought it for 50 euros, and for that, it is great!

                    Device is pretty good, does the job and is a pretty standard phone.

                    However after 1 year of using it, it started having issues with the battery and doesn't charge every now and then. The performance is also getting slower evidently over time. With only 16GB internal space and a 2700mh battery, you're better off getting another phone for it's price that doubles the specs.

                      After 5-6 months of usage (business purposes: calls, messages, mails, photos) the phone started to have problems with battery. The charging stops at certain time at certian %, and it stays like that until you restart. Sometimes when someone calls you the phone goes into unending vibration loop which is solved, again with restart. One of the things is when you try to unlock your phone via code/pattern and the android/phone decided it is wrong even if your code is 1111, the only way to solve it is.... yes restart the phone.

                          If you need reliable phone this is NOT one you want. It was ok in first two months. Than it started to be very slow and not responsive.
                          It been on service two times in two years. First time microphone died and second time motherboard got fried. Both times resulting complete data loss.

                          Gyroscope is so bad that auto rotation is almost not usable. It rotates screen by itself with delay *because its slow* resulting wrong buttons to be pressed further resulting opening and closing applications by itself, sending wrong messages to wrong people.
                          When its cold outside if battery is bellow 30% and you turn on your camera phone shuts down instantly.

                          This phone also like to shutdown randomly when battery is is less than 30% It happened many many times, during talks with clients, during gps navigation (even when plugged on charger)

                          Navigation its terrible as well (tried all apps out there). If you want quickly to search for a street and navigate to it, you better stop aside road and give it some time, cuz for this phone this task takes more than one minute to complete.

                          When you need to receive call you will know it before it rings, it will start to freeze and make weird sounds *flickering cracking sounds from spicker* and than eventually will ring , resulting people who called you asking you why did you took so long to answer.

                          Phone is made of very cheap plastic and it bends.
                          HTC was great company indeed but this phone is maybe ok for someone who have a lot of spare time to waste.

                          Overall impression is very bad, from great expectations i degraded my opinion to this very bad review.
                          Believe me, this phone is worst than my english :p

                            Good phone for the first 8 months. The selfies are awkward to take because you need to move the phone away from you more than usual.

                            It endured many many small falls (while using a case and screen protector). However, it has eventually failed after one year. The battery only lasts approximately 5 hours with minimal use. Battery is totally gone. I was hoping this phone would last at least 2 years! Very disappointed about this.

                            Overall experience 3/5

                                        absolutely fine 4 weeks using, no problem.. Good bettary, good performance, Display quality superb. Previous phone was nokia 3, htc is way better than that. i was trapped for buying nokia 3 for the goodwill of nokia then immediately sale that phone and bought htc. I'm satisfied.
