Reviews about the phone

It’s a vintage cellular phone in the company of contemporary capabilities with the price estimated approximately @ Rs 16000/- to Rs 17000/-. This Desire model looks more like a work of art than a piece of advanced Telecommunication technology. The paint splashes and speckles give the impression of being of an artist’s canvass all set to experience more. It is the newest appearance in the market for color-conscious phone users.

It has acquired a plastic sheath which weighs less. The nice-looking amplifier grill sits above and below the screen. Concerning appearance, HTC bagged this time. However, the battery seems to be less charming to go hand in hand with the other features of this mobile. Snap gears and lanyards are something new that would categorically pull buyers towards this handset. The phone is decent for the middle-income group with a knack for tech style and efficiency. It is a budget smartphone a not so good camera.
