Summary: I have had this phone since August of 2012, and while I was initially pleased with it, I am fed up and will try my hardest to never have to use this or any other android/HTC device in the future. The main issue I have with this device is the battery. In the first three or four months, I would charge the phone overnight (think starting at 9:00 PM or so) and take it off the charger upon my departure (7:00 AM) I keep my phone off all day, save half an hour for lunch, until 3:25, and by 5:00-6:30 it will be dead. This was frustrating, but bearable for a while, but by Thanksgiving, it was just not working. I then headed to an AT&T store who directed me to another store who was supposed to have a battery but didn't and then had to wait 5-6 days (way longer than we were told) for a new battery to be shipped to me. While this new battery did hold a longer charge, it wasn't a huge improvement. I am constantly involved in activities that I need to have my phone on for at all times and need to be able to contact someone at a moments notice, and this phone just doesn't cut it. Recently, however, I have discovered a worse problem- My phone has stopped charging all together. For months upon months I charged it the exact same way and never once had a problem until a few days ago- it just wouldn't charge in it's normal spot. I tried different cables (all of which work properly on other devices) different spots, and even switched my battery back to the old one. For a little while, (up until this afternoon, in fact,) It would charge, but It was extremely temperamental. I am constantly switching around batteries and the phone must be placed just perfectly to get it to charge, which leads me to believe i have a broken USB port in my phone, until tonight. It has absolutely stopped charging at all and I haven't the slightest clue why.
Honestly, i am fed up with all these problems- when I was recommended this phone, I was told it was amazing and all that jazz, and that has all been lies. So please be aware that my experience has been dreadful and I do not recommend this device at all, ever, to anyone. I will be getting either a replacement phone or a whole new phone entirely as soon as possible. This device causes more stress than it's worth.
