Memory


        It has internal memory of 16 GB but there is no card slot for expanding memory which is consider to be the major drawback of this smartphone as just 16 GB of internal will not going to be enough for storing thousands of songs and high resolution movies because half of the memory will be consumed by applications data. But still HTC provides Dropbox space of 25 GB free for two years.
