~ My experience
I was given this phone last year by my Dad as my other one broke so I was looking forward to using a HTC phone as it was my first Smartphone that I'd used. It was new when it was given to me so it was fairly easy to set up. The phone looks fairly simple with a 3.2 inch screen and I had the silver case although you can get other cases online fairly cheap. It comes with the android 2.3 operating system that's easy to use.
After a month or so having this phone it started to go downhill and I was starting to get annoyed with it as the phone kept crashing sometimes when I made a phone call so I would have to take the battery out and turn on again. I've also noticed when I go onto the internet browser (which is called Dolphin) it becomes unresponsive for 2-3 minutes or so, so you can't do any "smooth browsing", I gave up with trying to browse the internet when out.
The battery doesn't last very long either and I only mainly use this phone now to make and receive calls as well as text messages. If I've fully charged it the whole night to 100%, it would be at about 25-30% battery life by the next evening!
I don't bother with apps on this phone anymore, where you can buy apps from the Play store app that comes with the phone..and again searching the play store for an app I want would take about 5 minutes as it's very slow. This phone doesn't hold many app's either as it has 512 MB Internal phone memory , and 512 MB isn't a lot although you can buy a Micro SD memory card but the phone only supports up to 32 GB cards.
You do get built in Apps that come with it already like, Flash light which is useful, calender,alarm clock that's very loud, built in ringtones etc
I don't really like the camera either on this as it doesn't take very good photo's, most of mine turn out blurry or dark even if I've taken a photo in a well lit room same applies with the video recording, the sound quality isn't good either.

Overall I wouldn't recommenced this phone as you can get better smartphones nowadays, I'm currently getting a new phone to replace this as it's so slow and annoys me a lot. The only good thing I've found with this phone is the ease of calling and texting people, also the alarms that I use frequently are very loud.
Thanks for reading =)
Summary: A little phone that's okay for calling ,texting or setting alarms but can get better smartphones now
