Other keys are on display, touching any of them phone will vibrate.

On the right side is on/off keys. It is very easy to use, but there are other ways to unlock screen. Tap twice on the screen and it will unlock itself. Option Motion Launch is also available.

The GPU is Adreno 330. It has 2GB RAM and internal storage of 16GB. If you want more you can increase it with micro SD card up to 128 GB. This is more than enough for all users.

The display is 5.2 inches, IPS, it has 16M colors and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, full HD. It supports multitouch and it has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. This display is at the top of the range. It has a high view angle and colors are vivid, even in daylight.

Cameras are both 13MP. The main camera has BSI – sensor, 28mm, f / 2.0, Dual LED flash, video recording and speed up video recording in Full HD. Photos made in daylight are very good, but taking photos in dark places, you will notice that they are very bad quality. This is one of the cons of HTC Company. Rival models, iPhone 6 and Samsung Note 4 are much better in this case. Front camera, for video calls and Skype is also 13MP, this is very good, but do you really need a second camera with this size?

With usage of 50minutes of conversation, 10-20 SMS messages, e-mail, 3-4 hours listening music and 2-3 hours of using the internet, per day, this battery can last only 20 hours. If you want your battery to last longer you can apply one save energy mode. It will lower display bigness and turn off vibration.
