Score 2.0/10
Good points:
The camera on this phone is really good as is the music player.
Bad points:
The battery life is appalling, I set it up as HTC instruct and the battery
lasted about 6 hours. The settings constantly change back to what they want to as well. I upgraded to this phone and the signal is extremely bad. I used to get signal on my old phone at uni and rarely can on this which caused problems when I needed to contact my dad about my gran, who was in hospital. Also, the phone isn't that solid. I bought a case for it but when the phone fell onto the floor it still got scratched. And it decides to randomly phone people as well. I listened to music and locked the phone in the normal way but then it called our home phone at 2am. I've only had the phone for three months and have another 21 to go on my contract. To be honest, I really wish I'd waited another month and got a Nokia Lumia instead. I'll probably end up selling this and buying a new handset before the end of my contract. I just really would not bother guys.

FRANCESCO, Music and entertainment lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Powerful mobile, no glitches or hangs whatsoever.
Great Camera.
Great UI
Lightning Fast
Battery life not bad - you can get about 2 days of use with around 1hr use of wi-fi everyday and some gaming on it usually around 2hrs, calls, messages, etc
Bad points:
Only 768MB of ram, kind of a bottleneck.
HTC Sense uses most of the RAM, more than half!
Camera in low light situations produces a good amount of noise.
Loudspeaker for music and stuff not that loud.
