It has its bell and whistles for a user working a full time job with no time to sit down and mess with the phone much. It has 43 apps to update from first boot with 2.4GB storage available down to 700MB left remaining after updating all stock apps. Does tend to get a little warm playing light games like Gordon Ramsay Dash or watching movies in 720P. 240p or below doesn't get warm so keep that in mind. And if i have to compare this phone to my Moto E 2nd Gen i can say the HTC 625 is Lag free and responsive. Moto E 2nd Gen Go Phone does lag a lot since its running on stock android but 8% better in performance and impossible to unlock bootloader but you can unlock the phone to use any carrier.
So based on usage and testing it feels like its perfect for only making calls checking GPS maps and texting any other heavy usage expect the phone to get warm quick and drain fast with the small battery it has.
Rooting is available at HTC Dev but have not attempted yet with my busy schedule since i plan on removing the stock apps to make room. And no roms are out there for this phone it keeps getting mistaken for a HTC 626 or Lumia 626.
Buying price as of July 24 2016 50$ Cricket Wireless prepaid section at your local super market.
This smartphone by HTC comes with 8GB internal storage, 1.5GB ram
But in 2016 it's uncountable, in terms of specs, but some advance technology enabled, you can have quick access to all your movies, music, photographs, videos, documents, i wil give it 70 out of 100 points.
got this at Best Buy. I am very happy with it. It is a pleasure to use and good value and good company in the pocket
