HTC Desire 501 ( Review and Research)

Hi , I personally believe this is a great phone in the given price tag.., however der r ppl around who alleges issues with Screen and stuff and some went to an extent claiming it was recalled by HTC.

The following are the email communication took place directly with HTC in this regard and hopefully could be of use to many here. I always appreciate genuine reviews as its a biggest tool a User uses before making purchases.

From HTC ( Email Communication)

Dear Amit Sinha,

Thank you for contacting HTC support.

As per your email, we understand that you want answers for the questions mentioned below:
1. HTC Desire 501 will get Kitkat update?
2. Whether radio is available on this phone?
3. Warranty if purchased online?
4. Whether product was recalled because of display issue?

We value the importance of your concern.

For Kitkat update, we would like to inform you that as of now, we are not able to commit on the 4.4 Kitkat update for HTC Desire 501 as we are yet to receive an official confirmation for the same. When the update for HTC Desire 501 will be released you will get the notification on your phone, once it is connected to the Internet.

We would appreciate, if you would visit our website XXX regularly as we would also update the details for any latest updates for the handsets.

You can also check the latest updates for HTC handset on our facebook page: XXX

Further, we would like to inform you that radio is available for this phone. HTC provides 12months warranty starting from the date of purchase for handsets manufactured for India even though purchased from online store but it should be manufactured for India. If the phone is manufactured for other country there is limited support and you need to pay charges to get the handset repaired.

Note: We recommend our customers to purchase the handset from the retailer.

With regards to your last query, we would like to inform you that there is no such issue with display and product was not recalled by HTC.

We value your time and patience.

Date : 13/02/2014- I received a call today from HTC and spoke with their Technical department who confirmed today that this phone has AGPS along with Glonass.

Furthermore, they also informed they would be updating the Status as presently available on HTC website from Coming soon to "Available".

A perfect buy...

I have bought the 'HTC Desire 501' in the month on Dec 2013. Being aware of that, this model is newly launched and can be more prone to complaints. But seeing the configurations, the HTC brand i went for it and i don’t feel it’s a wrong choice.
It has given all possible features in its price limit.
-- Slim and sleek build with trendy color, feels good when you hold it. Looks similar to any high end phone
-- The Dual sim functioning is very nice and comfortable to use.
-- i am not a gamer and performance freak so happy to use this phone for as a web surfing, mailing and media. Satisfied...
-- Camera also quite good, specially the front cam with 2.00 MP
-- Very sophisticated and easy interface with smooth touch screen, nothing bad to say.
-- Got 25 GB space in Drop box with this

-- Headphone quality can be much better, though beats audio gives a good output
-- No option for switching off the 'Cell broadcast message’, so you keep getting loads of service msg.

IRON BOX tortoise

guys dont buy this phone if you want to use it as a phone . you can use this as an Iron Box only .
I brought 16 GB version for 16k . its very bad phone . its very slow . RAM is usage is minimum of 900MB every time . Net is very slow . Dual sim works but signal strength is very week . go for MOTO G or LG optimus L7 P715 .
10 hour battery back up . very very lagging phone . If you buy , will fell guilty
Head set is good , camera is ok . but slow phone with very slow internet

updated review .
1) heating issue
2) only one sim is 3g , if you select 3G only option and stays in full nework coverage then you can get a maximum speed of 200KBps .
3) lagging
4) display becoming bleared while switching between applications .

if you really want to buy this phone dont buy from flipkart . in shops 16 gb version released that too for just 16k , and 0% emi . I brought from coimbatore .

I am increasing my rating to 3 stars . but dont buy this phone buy moto G guys .

Best phone in this price range....

I Bought it yesterday from spice hot spot showroom..i only got the blue one as it was only available....i got it @ 15.4k with screen guard and softwares was a gift for my wife for her she was using one v so she want to go for htc ..

I was amazed by its feature and its screen display...both the camera is very good and pictures r of great quality...while taking close shots it automatically highlights the image and blurr the background....

build quality is way better than samsung and the antutu bench mark score is above not bad @ all...

Played temple run 2 and subway surfer with ease and without any lags....

Only con is the drains out very quickly...lets c how it goes after few days of use...

Far better than galaxy grand quattro and grand this price..

I would say tht if anybody wants a phone within 16k go for this one blindly without thinking for a second....

Awesome phone but has display problems!!

I have bought this phone from market the week it was launched. Writing this review after using it for 21 days. And its better than my previous xperia device.

All its features including camera.
Its Look and interface is awesome. It wins from any other device available in market in terms of look.
Didn't faced much lagging while playing games.

Android version and HTC sense version.
Audio is not clear (not bad too) while listening music.
It crashes and restarts if using any wifi file tranfer app.
Battery is not as good (for 2100 mah) and drains like all other android devices.
Wifi service is not much good.

Display Problem:
Initially I faced an issue of linings and blurring on screen while watching video or playing games. Later I found that it also happens when I restart my phone and when HTC logo appears. This is temporary and more likely to happen when phone is continously used and it gets heated.

Please tell if someone else is also facing same issue.

But overall I love my device and it is working fine otherwise. It's worth the money and better than other samsung and sony devices available in same range, in terms of both software interface and hardware.
