Before releasing any new phone (whoever designs it), HTC shall first publish security updates for released phones...

U12+ is still stuck with 1st July 2019 security patch !

Anonymous, 27 Feb 2020It's called a budget phone I'm talking about the approach, not about the phone

PlayerDead, 27 Feb 2020Is this made by the real HTC or by InOne Smart Technology ... moreThis is made most probably by InOne. But Lava is an independent Indian company. I have not seen any evidence that supports Lava is owned by InOne.

I am not saying InOne is better than Lava or Lava is better than InOne. Just correcting facts.

The specs are not great but it's all about the price to be honest.

CptPower, 29 Feb 2020No it doesnt and removing jack makes more space for more us... moreIt doesn't coexist???? Lmfao. I guess you've never used a phone before.
And you are too smart to fall for such a poor excuse as something like saving room. Better antenna??? They had to wait til years like 2018 and 2020 and removing a headset jack just to be able to put a better antenna in???? Really let that sink in how sad that is as an excuse and just how sad in general it would be if it were true.

They had all the room they needed.
This is not the future, it coexists perfectly, and there has been zero benefit.

ob, 28 Feb 2020What a racist coment. LOL. It is like Apple hire Foxconn to... moreI think there is a misunderstanding.

Apple design their product and licences Foxconn for manufacturing.

Here HTC have licenced their HTC Wildfire name to Lava, so Lava designs and sell their phones having HTC Wildfire name.

HTC have no contribution whatsoever in designing this phone.

Jack is dead.
Only people which cant live with charging their wireless audio because they are very lazy says it has zero reason to remove such an osolette tech like jack.

2GB RAM is too much. 1GB RAM is enough.

But your point was getting mad at them and attacking them because how much you like the 11. Yes you are right it was better. But their point still stands. Not that their devices were bad after that. They just basically died off and didn't progress after that.

Didn't Google ALREADY ENFORCED that every NEW android phone CERTIFIED & LAUNCHED with the latest Android OS, which is currently Android 10 after end of January 2020 deadline?? Why does HTC STILL LOAD Android 9.0 PIE on Wildfire R70 after THAT deadline??

Google will "PUNISH" HTC soon along with Sony (Xperia L4), LG (W10 Alpha) Huawei (Y7p, Honor 9X lite), Xiaomi (Redmi 8A Dual)...

acemang, 28 Feb 2020my point was that next HTC phones were even better after Ht... moreSounds so giod to hear some reasonable talk on this platform. Most of the user or potential buyer doesn't have a single clue about what to look for in a smartphone. And tbh, reliability comes very late when they consider a device. I have bought 4 HTC devices, i am not a fanboy i just bought because they worked well for me that lead me buy another from htc.

I am just another customer who would love a reliable product with top build and would retain it for longer. I don't wanna change my device every year, i would rather spend 400/500 bucks more for a device. I think there is a big group of customers think like me who put reliability as one of the biggest factor.
