Flagship features...dual sim...classy feel! AN ABSOLUTE BEAST OF A PHONE! Must-have!
By Nirbhay Sharma | 11 Oct 2014
this is my first htc and i bought it from a retailer in chandigarh.
first things first, i feel this phone is a tad bit over-priced (in comparison to the same phone in china) but that can be understood for the import taxes and duties for the import of phones. but i got it for 31200 which after going through around 20shops was the best deal i could find.
coming to the phone. its just wonderful to use it. i own the dark grey color and believe you me it has just the same feel as any flagship phone has and even better according to me due to it being lighter than M8. the white color has a polycarbonate feel and will leave u asking for a bit more, but the dark grey version gets it absolutely right.
battery, a main concern in android phones today. but this phone on normal usage, i.e. normal web browsing calls and music can get u something more than a day. however if continuous rigorous movies/3g calling, the battery will drain in around 12hours.
camera is good, not great. the pictures are good as far as the clarity and sharpness is concerned but the color saturation and white balance goes haywire in low lighting or heavily lit areas.
UI, htc sense is just the best. u will love it the moment u touch it. blink feed is awesome as it gives u all info (social/news etc) on your home screen. the ui is very swift and responsive andno lag whatsoever.
gaming: fifa 15, rip tide gp2 ran as smooth as silk. no lag, no heating even after continuous gaming but as with all phones, during heavy gaming the battery drains out.
dual sim!!! i dont know how many of u want this but i have the requirement of 2 sims and to have such a mobile phone with these specs and dual sim, its "sone-pe suhaga" for me :)
all in all, i just love this phone. its feel, its price, its specs. a phone u must have if u want to save so money and get the best dual sim out there.
