    I am shocked how great this phone is. I went with this go phone from AT&T because I am not buying into their hideous New idea where you have to pay more every month to get a new phone. So I went with this go phone and I am very happy with it. I’ve been through the iPhone’s and Samsung galaxy’s and this is so so good. The display is gorgeous and vivid. It’s so easy to use also. Just a great phone. Pay a couple hundred bucks, no contract or running up my bill more. I am very picky about phones, this one is worth what you pay for it.

    The battery life is very good on this phone also compared to what the iPhone and Samsung galaxy were. I am so impressed with it. Not real sensitive either, I had the sensitivity problem with the Samsung galaxy. This phone is very user friendly. Very good product HTC.

    Fantastic phone and a great screen / display. Do not listen to the negative feedback . these negative reviews are people confused with what they are talking about. This phone is a mid range not a high end flagship phone its a tad cheaper and does not have a 1080p HD screen. What it does have is a great screen with very good colors . photos and camera look great. Build quality of the phone is also very very solid. I would buy this phone over and over.

    HTC has reinvented itself with the design and features of the HTC One M7 and the follow-up HTC One M8. These are premium quality phones with premium price tags to match. So, can HTC infuse the same design and style sensibilities into an entry-level phone? Let’s take a look and find out.

    This is a GoPhone, so let’s discuss that first.

    There are two ways you can use a GoPhone. A GoPhone can be used with its included SIM card or with your existing SIM card. If you want to use it with the included card, you’ll need to follow the activation process with AT&T. The other option is to use an AT&T SIM card you already have. If you need a backup phone, or broke your phone, and already have an activated AT&T SIM card, you can pick up one of these and pop your SIM card in it. You do not need to do anything with the included SIM card if you use your existing SIM. In fact, there is a sticker on the back of this phone that basically says that existing AT&T users just need to pop in their SIM card. That is what I did. In my case, I chose to use my existing nano SIM card from my Lumia 1520 to test out this phone.

    This device uses a nano sim. If you plan to put your existing AT&T SIM card in this device, you need to make sure it is a nano SIM. If it is not a nano SIM, you can obtain a nano SIM from AT&T for your current line of service or activate the one provided with this phone.

    As a GoPhone, it comes in blister pack packaging. I find blister packs to be very difficult to open, and cannot understand how these thick plastic boxes are more economical than using the orange and white cardboard boxes AT&T typically uses for high end phones. The contents of the package include the phone, documentation, a nano sim, an HTC branded charger, and a micro USB cable.

    Picking the phone up for the first time, my impressions were that it is lightweight for its size. The matte dark grey plastic rim around the phone provides some grip-ability, while the back of the device is glossy plastic, like a Samsung. If you don’t like glossy plastic, you should probably look around at other devices.

    The battery is sealed-in, and the back is not removable. Access to the microSD card slot and the nano SIM slot are from a door on the upper left side of the device.

    The volume keys on the right-hand side and top-mounted power key feel very mushy. The are not clicky at all.

    It has a 4.7 inch FWVGA screen, which is a resolution of 854×480. Spread across 4.7 inches, that comes to a low resolution, by today’s standards, of 208 ppi. Of all the specifications for this phone, this is its biggest flaw. If this is your first smartphone, or you want to try Android, or you are coming from an older 3.5 inch iPhone or similar Android device, the resolution shouldn’t be much an issue for you. If, however, you currently use a “retina” class device or Full HD smartphone, then you may notice. I have some higher end devices and I don’t find the screen resolution to be that bad. It is ok and good enough. The color black seems a little on the grey side, rather than being a deep black color. The screen seems to also be very reflective, and mounted noticeably below the glass, which I think causes some of the reflectivity. Viewing angles are pretty poor, so you need be looking at the screen directly to see it clearly. You won’t have any concerns about people looking at your phone from the side, like on a plane or train ride. They won’t be able to see a thing. I guess if you wanted to, you could spin this in a positive light as a security feature!

    It has a quad core Snapdragon, running at 1.2 Ghz. This is actually pretty usable for an entry level device. Android can run well on a variety of devices, especially with the latest improvements under-the-hood. On Quadrant, this device scores a 10073. On Geekbench, this device scores 345 (single core) and 1138 (multicore). These scores are nearly identical to my Moto G with LTE.

    To compare another device, the iPod Touch 5th Generation scores 214 (single core) and 415 (multicore). So if you just wanted this device as an Android media player, you get a larger screen (but not better), and a faster processor with the capability for external storage on the SD card.

    It has 1GB of ram, which is enough to run Android reliably, but half of the 2GB standard in most of the phones today.

    This phone has WiFi connectivity on the 2.4Ghz band only also works on the AT&T LTE network for cellular connectivity.

    This device has an 8 megapixel camera, not the Ultrapixel camera from the HTC One. It also has a flash, which some phones in this price range do not have. It is nice to have a flash in this price range. The camera takes decent photos. They are not unbearable and I’d say they are good enough. Don’t expect DSLR quality photos, but you should expect serviceable photos suitable…
