This Dual SIM phone comes with a host of other features from HTC like, HTC BlinkFeed, which was also seen in earlier HTC desire series smartphones. This feature transforms your home screen and enables you to view all your notifications and feeds directly on home screen. HTC video highlights allow you to make 30 sec clips with integrated music by a single tap on screen. Other feature which makes little difference is the HTC Boom sound which hasn’t proved very enticing so far.
