Overall, I really enjoy this phone. While the battery life isn't the greatest, HTC does offer an extended life battery that you can use instead of the standard battery. I didn't order the extended battery yet, so I am not sure how much more time this will add to the battery life, but I do intend on ordering it eventually. The re-charge time is fairly quick, so once the battery runs out, it's not long before you can be back up and running. The camera on this smartphone is just as good as my ten mega-pixel point and shoot camera. The camera function is very easy to use and upload pictures. The phone has a nice design and seems very durable and sturdy. It comes with a kickstand on the back which makes it nice for sitting on your desk. The phone was a fair price and didn't cost a fortune like some of the other phones I had shopped for. I did notice that on occasion the phone will stall for a few seconds when trying to make a call, and if you have an incoming call you need to answer it quickly or it will go to voice mail, but that may something you can change, I just haven't checked in to the settings for that particular issue yet.
