HTC Desire V Dual-SIM Android Phone Priced at P16,990

The HTC Desire V has officially landed in the Philippines.  The Desire V Android phone was announced in early June and is the first-ever dual-SIM handset from maker HTC.  It is a 4-inch phone that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with the latest version of Sense UI on top.  The handset has Beats Audio, a common feature on latest HTC handsets.

HTC just announced the retail price of the Desire V and it is fortunately lower than what was initially reported.  The HTC Desire V is now available in the Philippines for P16,990, much lower than the $475 (about P20,500) price rumoured at the time the handset was launched internationally.   This makes the HTC Desire V a “desirable” handset considering the specs, and the fact that runs on two SIMs.  Here’s a rundown of the HTC Desire V’s specs.

    I bought an HTC Desire V and it’s a complete waste of money! The signal consistently drops even on areas where you often get full strength. You would always need to restart your phone to get that “full bar-signal” back. That, and when you call, it disables the other sim making you unreachable even through text messages! So if you have long conversations using one sim, be sure you’re not expecting an important message on the other because you’ll only receive it once you’re done with the call. Such a waste of money. With the price, could have bought  a decent dual core android phone.
