HTC Desire 555 is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay for it's price I managed to get my hands on this phone about a week ago and I have to say, it's not all that bad. It's processors aren't super speedy and the screen isn't supposed to be all amazing and beautiful. It's a $100 phone. This phone is meant to get the job done. And it does. Phone calls, social media, light gaming, etcetera. It does it all decently. There isn't loads of space but there is ENOUGH space. It isn't a must buy but it's certainly worth the price if you're looking for a nice budget phone running the latest Android version along with HTC's latest custom ui.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone! I bought this phone a month ago and so far I am very happy. The screen is bright with accurate color and battery life has been very good. The phone seems very sturdy and we'll built. Really, for the modest price it is a great phone. I definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Just upgraded to this phone about two weeks ago after having the previous model for almost two years. So far so good. It runs much faster and has double the memory and for the price you can't beat it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an easy to use phone with a great price!
