Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone at a Great Price I’ve been off contract for a while and I bought this phone as it seemed to do what I wanted at a good price. After a couple of weeks I’m really happy with it, the screen is really nice and big and it takes great photos in most situations. I love the sleek look of the phone and changing the theme is really easy and there are tons to choose from- A bonus is the sound quality- the inbuilt speakers are great, really loud and clear, good enough that I can listen to music without headphones most of the time. The battery life is good. I tend to keep a charger handy at work and home but haven’t had to use them as much as I was with my old phone. Overall a great phone and a bargain if you can get one for less than $500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance of a high end model but half the cost I love my new Desire 825 after having to buy a phone outright to replace my old Samsung S6 that died, which I’m still in contract for. I use my camera a lot and thought the quality of a mid-range phone wouldn’t cut it, but in fact it does the job quite nicely. I won’t be rushing in getting a new phone once my contract has finished because the HTC Desire 825 does more than what I need and want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good valued phone This is a good valued phone in its price range. I bought this phone because it has a big screen and I did not want to spend too much money on buying a phone. What I do with my phone is internet search and running simple apps plus playing Pokemon Go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with HTC This is the first time I have used a HTC phone and I am very happy with it. Thank you for the recommendation JB. The big screen size and battery life is good for Pokemon go and their are some cool themes you can choose on the phone. The selfie camera is the best I have had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good mid-range phone I bought this phone online after having played with one in-store. I researched the specs and thought it might be a little under-performing with camera, speed, and battery, however, this is a great phone for the price. I'm very pleased with swapping between apps, quality of pictures, and battery charge. It's only available from JB, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Phone I bought this phone the other day and it was a pretty decent phone. The camera could of been better (JB says best class). Low light photo is absolutely disappointing. The battery lasts a day with no problem but i honestly would rather spend 200 bucks more to get the samsung galaxy s6/s6edge.
