Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Features! I received my new phone the HTC Desire 520 4 days a go, it is replacing my HTC Ryme which I loved but it was only 3 G. I have been so impressed with the HTC products, I just found a built in video editor, flashlight, office organitational app,as well as a radio, the camera also has many settings and editing options . It seems to have more options than my I pad mini. Great Job HTC keep it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back Up Phone I got this phone to have as a back up in case of emergency or other needs arise. So far no regrets. I also have an LG V10 as my main phone. I just needed slightly more features than a flip phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh Storage space is minimal. I could only have a few apps downloaded and I don't download a lot of apps as it is. Very basic in smart phone function. Only thing I really liked about this phone compared to others I've had is that it connects instantly to my car where others take a while.
