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 :-)

It's fast. Can not download picrures from text messages to your phone. You get pictures from e-mail and download them.
The battery lasted very long. Very light, the sound is ok, has lots of memory. you can not add a memory card
In to the phone. The battery is build in. You can not change batteries, I did not like it at first but my daughter loves
It.

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.

Bought it in November, dropped it twice and the glass was completely shattered. Took it to repair and they told me since the glass was glued to the screen underneath they have to exchange them together, which costs about 100 bucks.. (when I ask them how much I'd get if I sell it they said "10 dollars" oh well) Also since this is a rare model they have to order the parts online, and I had to buy a fake "otterbox" for it.
Now it's April and for some reasons the screen's cracked again(while having the "otterbox" on), and there's no way I will go have it fixed again!! Now I'm going to buy a military grade rugged phone...
Other than that, there are too many apps that I can't delete, can't change the number of home pages, SIM card's in the socket which is inconvient, other functions works fine I guess. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone.
PS: Before this HTC I was using some cheap Chinese phone my mom got for free, and I've dropped it and sat on it and nothing ever happened to the screen!! The glass screen on this phone actually comes out of the body for like 1mm, who the heck designed it this way???

The description of this phone lets you believe that you can open the back and put your Sims card and memory card in the phone. Even the directions that come with the phone, explains how to take the back off. When you look at the phone, there is no way to take the back off. There is a side slot for your Sims card but no slot for your memory card. The ATT representative told me I would need to go to Walmart and by a memory card application to remove the memory from me card and then place it on my computer and then hopefully the phone will accept the memory internally. A very big hassle and cost, I immediately retuned the phone.
