Who concern about 2 days battery back up for android phones. so i thought of replacing it, but later i tried reset & remove the battery for some time now its in best stage. guys the battery will come along with inside the phone while opening the box, so pls make sure once phone switch on work for some time & switch it off & remove the battery for some times then put it again & switch on. battery for an average user its last a day around 18 to 24 hours. while charging battery indicator keep on going

One other notable con about this device is the android version it is running on. i dont really understand why htc is shipping this device in 2014 with an android version released almost 2 years ago. even though this has features like nfc,dual active sim etc, the 15k price cannot be justified when looking at other specs it ships with,like processor,screen,sense version etc
