"If only the people at HTC Used their products..."0.5 starson by catbr
Pros: ..they would see that they have great design and a good camera for a good price - but
Cons: - they would make the phone with more that 130 MB of space so that it would live up to its ideal of "make it your own" it should be "good luck using it after downloading email, play store & facebook"
Summary: This phone has the WORST capacity of any (ANY) consumer electronic device I have EVER used! There are flash drives with better capacity storage. The hardware of this phone is fantastic! Good quality photos, excellent sound quality, even in midtown Manhattan, the call quality is as good as any other phone I've used. BUT
I don't understand how anyone would manufacture a product for a company to sell without taking into consideration of the phone company's app storage capacity.
Why would HTC do this?
Why couldn't a phone be made to have 130 something MB of space AFTER the phone company's uninstallable apps & bloatware are included. I bought a 16GB sd card to fit apps in, and I STILL cannot download apps to it because the phone's memory is hovering around 8-2MB (this after CONSTANTLY having to "..make more space...". I'm sick of it! I had to uninstall the Find My Phone app, because there wasn't enough internal storage for the GMail to update. I download an entertainment app every week, because I can't move them to the sd card, with 10 GB of space due to the lack of phone capacity. Is HTC in league with the "root your Android" people?? I don't want to root; I don't want to pay for someone else to root it for me; I want the $$ I spent on a 16GB sd card to be worth it - you know, to put photos, games, etc...My phone is so boring. I even had to "make more space" in the subway so I could hear the music playlist. Its so bloated GasX can't even help to deflate it...now what? I've had this phone for 3 months (old Huawei phone was stolen and it was 2 years old & crappy, but SO MUCH BETTER capacitywise), and I am already considering looking at another phone (reason for visiting CNet)
So if you only want 3 apps at a time, and don't mind being interrupted every other time you use the phone to "make more space", or just want to snap a quick (good quality) picture - not to post anywhere (because Instagram & Facebook take up a lot of space, and while Instagram can be transferred to sd card, Facebook cannot) then this is the phone for you. Just call and take and hold pics
forget about getting one of HTC's custom backgrounds
One you update Play Store its done
If HTC doesn't improve its phone's capacity, their smartphones will be called the "not-smart" phones
