Before I start my review I just want to say that I'm not a crazy Facebook user and I usually log into my Facebook once a week or so. I rarely ever use Facebook and when I do, I usually just see what's new with my friends/family and then immediately log out. I got this phone for my girlfriend because she (obviously) loves Facebook so I thought it would be cool to buy her a phone that's made for Facebook users in mind. The HTC First is also known as the "Facebook phone" and it isn't a high end device by any means and it's geared towards users who love Facebook and aren't tech savvy. The launcher that's running on top of Android 4.1 is called Facebook Home. You can also disable Facebook Home that comes right out of the box and use the stock android version which is android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This is a cool feature that this phone offers because some people might later decide to use the stock android version if they get bored with Facebook Home.

So far from all the testing that I have done, the HTC First has a decent battery life which I wasn't expecting it because it's a mid-range device. It packs a 2000 mAh battery that it's more than enough for people who spent most of their time on Facebook. The screen on the HTC First is 720p which is great for viewing pictures or HD videos. The HTC First is a 4.3 inches device that is perfect for my girlfriend because she has small hands - she's coming from an iPhone 4S. I made her ditch the iPhone 4S and come to Android. :D The HTC First comes with Snapdragon 400 which is a dual core CPU that runs at 1.4Ghz. It has no problems handling everything you throw at it and consumes very little power when it's running; qualcomm really knows how to make great chips.

After seaching for a good Android phone for a while I am happy that my seach ended with the HTC first. It is an amazing phone, not sure why it did not do well in the market. Just disable the Facebook home and you have a out of the box Android JB with you. Install a launcher and you are ready to go. I literally bough 3 of these phones, 1 from ebay and 2 from amazon. Now everyone in my family is using it without any issues. Perfect size, good battery and 16 GB memory, what else you want :-)

I purchased this phone for my son and he really likes it. He read all previous reviews, considered other phones, but because of the reviews he decided to go with this one. He has not been disappointed.
