Pros As long as you only use it for an occasional text and no phone calls or apps or anything else, it's fine.
Cons Everything! Bad pics, bad call quality, when they aren't getting dropped, which is ALL THE TIME! And it lags/freezes all the time as well.
Summary If you actually use your phone, the battery overheats and dies quickly. The camera takes FOREVER to focus. Call quality SUCKS!!!!! In a quiet room, the volume all the way up, and talking to a person on a land line or cell phone, the audio keeps going in and out. Half the time I grab my phone to do anything, my phone wakes up to who knows what turned on. Sometimes my camera is on, sometimes my news feed is up, sometimes youtube is playing, sometimes it's the last page on the net that I looked up. Even after returning to the home screen before putting the phone down, it still does this. The only people giving this phone rave reviews are people that barely use it or don't know how a smartphone is supposed to work, and people paid to give good reviews or employees of HTC and Android.
Pros Good functionality when it works
Cons This phone freezes up at least once a day, often more. I have to take it out of its case, take it apart, remove the battery. If I'm in a hurry and need to use my phone, too bad. What a piece of garbage. I will NEVER buy an HTC product again. JUNK!
Pros 1. Great screen
2. Comes with 8gb MicroSD
Cons 90min. battery life with gps, wifi, 4g off
3G data 1800ms ping, 0.02 down, 0.01 up
Terrible, noisy cameras
The touchscreen is very inaccurate
Comes with no touchscreen calibration tool
ICS took a year
Rarely 3G, barely 4G
Summary THIS PHONE IS USELESS and I cannot wait until the day my contract is up*UPDATE*

"Phone freezes up"on by zooiecon
Pros Screen size, thin phone
Cons Phone freezes up. My grandson was stuck in emergency situation with a phone frozen and not workin.
Summary Would not recommend this phone as it is not reliable.
Pros Fast working, great signal, WiFi hotspot works, great screen, rear camera/flash works well, easy to use, layout allows many widgets/apps to be easily accessible, great weather graphics, great speaker, keyboard first I can use without stylist etc....
Cons Cannot turn off factory unlock screen have to swipe then put in pass code just to unlock phone. Front facing camera not very good (haven't seen a phone with a good on yet though),zoom sucks, charging battery every night (have had worse)
Summary This phone is pretty simple to use. It is fast, reads touch well, keyboard is first I can type on without hitting another letter every time I go go type something. It has a beautiful screen which displays great colors and graphics/photos. Layout of apps/widgets it nice, many screens you can put shortcuts/widgets on. Runs smoothly when playing video or animation of any sort. Keeps signal and 4g. There have been a few quirks I get annoyed with (lock screen being worst) however with all the great features I can deal with a few annoyances with no issue. Camera is great, however you must understand sometimes manual focus is needed, camera likes focusing on nearest object not great facial recognistion but all you have to do is tap screen on what you want to focus on and it corrects itself, or sometimes if you press and hold snap button it will auto focus on the main object instead of closest (only time it hasnt worked for me is taking very close up pictures. Has many features you can turn on and off, can put up app to turn off and on WiFi hot spot and 4g to help save battery. All around great phone I am happy with so far...no major issues yet and haven't had any of the horrible cons anyone else has listed...and if you could turn off the swipe screen so you just had to put in pass-code would have given 5 star...not price is a little high but yay store credit so got it for half price.
