Low price, good features, whats the catch?

Advantages: Price, 5 megapixel camera, asthetics.
Disadvantages: Short battery life, slow, faulty touchscreen (at times).
At a low price, this budget android phone is crammed full of great features. With HTC sense, a 5 megapixel camera and versatile use due to plenty of apps available for download on google's play store AND the ones already included with the HTC handset such as weather and news, you may be thinking this is all great for a device that fits in your pocket.
In some respects it is, but since this is at a relatively low price, all those features come at a cost. The mobile is very slow whenever you try to use... well, anything. Due to this most games and a few apps are too slow to be useable, and because of the out-dated hardware and older version of android, a few popular apps such as instagram are not compatible.
The battery life is also a let-down, and is quickly drained when using apps or browsing the internet, and especially when your in a call. Also there seems to be some sort of fault with the touchscreen at times as it just seems to grow a mind of its own and start pressing everything.
With that said, it is a good looking and stylish phone. Small light and durable, this would be a great phone for a basic user. But for someone who is a more advanced user or is big on the latest tech, dont expect this to be anything other than a cheap handset.
Summary: Value for money but lacking speed. Not for you gamers!
