Hi everyone!! I think my almost 5 year old Nokia phone should be replaced now. My options for a new phone are limited here. I was thinking about getting the HTC Desire 516. Do any of you use this phone or have ever used this phone in past? How is this phone's performance? Is this phone worth of its price? The price tag of it is still a bit over my budget but I am hoping there might be a little price cut in the beginning of the next year. I know this is not appropriate to ask about HTC Desire 516 here because the section is for the Desire 510 but as the one I'm asking about belongs to the Desire 500 series so I posted my thread here. And I'm open to other options within the same price range so feel free to suggest other models if you want.

What are other phones you are considering? I am not saying to avoid this device, just curious.

Thanks for the advice, I also read some really negative reviews on this particular model from HTC. One common problem is the battery backup with this one; I read a comment of one of the Desire 516 user stated that the phone was fully charged when he left it before going to bed and in the next morning there was 90% charge left. I mean in stand-by mode (I don't know what is the proper term for it) how come within 7/8 hours a phone loses 10% battery backup? I am hoping that it is not common for all the android phones.

In my country Moto G 2014 hasn't become available as of yet. I like the Moto G 2013 edition though. Let's see what will be its price tag. How about the LG one that I picked?
