Purchasing a used desire s need some help?
Hi guys i am looking to get a new phone and i have found a htc desire s from several reputable sellers in grade c cosmetic condition for £70 which seems like a good deal for a unlocked aluminium uni body phone.
I did some research and realized that this phone is prone to eMMC chip frying due to a design flaw. This has made me question whether i want to purchase it or not. Can anyone tell me it is a really big problem as i would rather not have to fork out even more money to get a new phone if this does occur.
Further research tells me that this occurs if i remove the battery while the phone is on which is mostly caused by the phone hanging due to the update all feature on google play. Is this still a big problem now that Google play store updates apps one by one even though you select update all apps?
Finally the Incredible S is also available at the same price but i am aware this also suffers from this problem however is this phone less likely to get a fried chip than the desire s. If so i would purchase this although im not to keen on the back of this phone.
And one more short question i have come up with while writing this
Can any one with a Incredible S tell me if the indentation on the back is really deep or if its barely noticeable?
