I am writing this review because after having a new phone for all of 3 months and it breaking repeatedly, I have realised how good my trusty HTC Desire was and have now awakened it from the drawer to be used once again!!
I got this phone on an 18month contract over two years ago, at the time it was on offer for £15 a month with a great call/text/internet package. I am unsure about current pricing, but I would recommend anyone to buy this phone all over again for £15per month! Bargain, I would pay £30.
I never used a phone cover, but the screen and casing remained unscratched, even after being thrown around in the bag of a person who likes to carry everything with them. It has survived nights out, being thrown on the floor, soaked with alcohol and rain. Never once has it stopped working..
The touchscreen is easy to use and the text of a suitable size to read. Apps are readily available to purchase and a wide variety of them are free. The ones that I have paid for are easy to remove and store on the online marketplace, meaning that if they were to be downloaded again they are linked to the devices' account and don't need to be paid for a second time!!
The camera is off good quality, even when printing the photographs out, it is not obvious that they are from a phone.
There is a built in radio on the phone that tunes itself in and space for some music (depending on the memory card size).
Summary: Great phone, still as great functioning now as the day that I purchased it!
