IMP- Those facing mmi error.Its fixed by htc just update your mob asap u buy and bug removed.

I bought this mob a month ago..after 3-4 days Headphone Jack stop working.I visited htc service center.The guy was one who took contracts from many company like htc samsung lava etc.He said it has to be repaired.I said its 4 days old and i dont want to get it opened.He then made me a DOA (Defect On Arrival) certificate.I took it to retailer and he replaced the mob with a brand new sealed one.So i was lucky with the service.
Rest the mob works awesome.Great display.Great Camera.Heavy Apps work fine.(NFS MW) but few cons like not good battery backup( prob with all androids so not much of a problem) And sometimes lags bw app transitions and unlock screen.

I am a big fan of cyanogen mod and the very first thing that i do after buying a phone is flash cm on it. I am not sure if 501 is ever going to have even a stock based custom rom so i had to do exchange it with a brand new grand duos that a friend of mine bought.It has probably the biggest range of stock/aosp based ROMs and can even play 1080p movies without any frame skips. So yea
