Heat for the price and spec but i don't think this is the dual sim version. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

The networks detest everything dual SIM. So no, this will not be the dual SIM version of the phone.

Still a good price so. The inclusion of a microSD slot may make it a good alternative to a Moto G.

The moto G has a higher screen res so that would be my pick:

I'm now torn between this and the Moto G, any thoughts?

The Gorilla Glass of the Moto G is also worth mentioning. It is something that is not normally found on sub £300 devices.

I doubt the HTC Desire 310 is going to feel as well made as the Moto G.

Good price, but unless you really love HTC or Sense, moto g is the better value - better screen, quad CPU, faster OS updates. Not sure how the camera compares but can't imagine there's much in it.

I'd favour the HTC, unless this has the buttons taking up precious screen estate again, in which case its Lenovo ftw

No led flash light is a deal breaker

Moto G all the way, the specs are just miles apart, Mediatek MT6582M 1.3 GHz (HTC) compared to Qualcomm MSM8226 1.2GHz (MOTO G), don't be fooled by the 1.3 GHz and quad core, the quality of the chipset makes the real difference, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the Moto G with latest 4.4.2 KitKat is just a bargain. I doubt this HTC phone will ever get 4.4.2, software update isn't HTC strong point.

Moto G is the one to go for....

No 4G, what is the point?

HTC - CPU Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7.

Moto g it is then, cheers all

1gb ram

Main issue with the HTC is it only has 4GB of internal memory. Way too low IMO.

Agreed, if it had LTE i'd snatch one up.
as it is, Moto G is a better bet overall

Perhaps for those of us where there is no 4G signal anyway?

Main issue with HTC is software updates ... you can forget it ... I was a big fan, particularly HTC Sense, but the HTC One S was my last HTC, not coming back

how would this compare to a SG S2?

This is a £60 phone, not £100. Moto G far better

Go for the Moto G instead.

Moto G - all the way.

A good deal price-wise but I'd lean toward the Moto G too

Worst phone I ever owned was a HTC Desire (mini) so I'm not going near them again thank you very much. I won't vote hot or cold cos i can't actually decide

the Nokia lumia 920 is only 169 pounds in tesco, a 4.5 inch 720p gorilla glass screen, 8.7mp camera with Optical Image stabilisation and 4g

I'd go for a 16gb moto g if I could get one at that price. Now that the Virgin deal is finished, that's not an option. I'm waiting for it to drop to that price again elsewhere.

Understand your point, but considering it would be usual to hang onto a phone for a couple of years for most people, I would imagine 4g coverage will be pretty widespread by then.

Best phone I ever owned was the HTC Desire (not mini) so there.

Not back spec but Moto G beats it in all aspects. Ie screen resolution. The Moto G is fantastic. Im using one now. Battery life is around 16-20 hours it will get you through the day!

However its got a micro SD card slot and HTC skin which many like



Yh but wp8 is dog awful. I picked the 920 up from Tesco for £139 and still dislike it. I knew the app situation before purchase but whats killing me is the battery - tethered to my laptop it goes from full to empty in under 5hrs. That's not 100% useage as I'm at work so may be on 'call' or spending a lot of time on individual pages - but did include 2hrs of Netflix.

As a comparison the stock battery in my old sgs3 gave 7hrs min - in that would have been 4hrs of netflix too.

Not the best I've ever had (SGS2 maybe) but v v close. What let the orig desire down for me was instability after a year or so's use - both my 2 desires and the OH's were the same.

In defense of HTC they've come leeps and bounds in terms of their software updates the past couple of years. They come a lot more quicker than they used to!

218 ppi screen vs 329 ppi for the Moto G, plus the Moto has Gorilla glass. The only benefit this phone has over the Moto is a micro SD slot.

Another vote for Moto G here. I have one and its brilliant for the price!

The microSD slot is literally the only reason to choose this over the Moto G right now, unless for some reason you want HTC's skin over an older version of Android. I can't imagine the camera will be noteworthy enough to tip the balance. The Moto G outdoes it in almost every area.

They've sorted that out now. They've moved most of there apps onto the play store so they'll be quicker to stream out updates.

No one has mention

Is this UNLOCKED? if its locked and its costs £20 just to unlock! GO FOR MOTO G 100%

HTC pump out updates quicker than LG and have better support. That's why the HTC M8 was voted best phone to have. They said LG was technically better, but there support was poop so is only 3rd

Don't know about this, but the Moto G was a small but definite upgrade from the S2.
Problem is the S2 was, when it came out, a top-range/high-end device whereas the Moto G, while excellent for its price, is still classified as budget.

My sister's S2 was playing up - crashing, buttons not working and it was also quite laggy in general. She got a Moto G and is very happy with it, and it works flawlessly, but I wouldn't call it a major upgrade in terms of features. Just a better screen and CPU.

we have both in the house - heres my view.... the htc desire we have is the old one and its pretty fast considering its age ...my mrs loves it - camera is really nice and its robust enough..it was droped in a club and went back the next moring and found the back battery and phone still working!

Moto g - son has this great software and really fast ...he thinks it top end compared to his mates iphones etc ...butttttt the camera on the moto g is unusable unless its really good lighting which is sad ...the 8gb memory is fine once you set up google + for photos video's etc and considering you will fry an external memory card if you run apps of it..(it may take two years but it will happen when you least expect it so better to use the cloud for storage)...hope this helps
