HTC First is the phone for Facebook junkies (and no one else)

Armando Rodriguez | April 22, 2013
The HTC First may not look that impressive on paper, but its close ties with Facebook make it the phone for fans of the social network.

Bottom line

The HTC First excels at being a tool to quickly access and interact with your friends on Facebook, but it also falls short in a few other key areas. Millions of people use their smartphones to upload photos to Facebook, so it's a shame that HTC skimped out when it came to the First's camera and camera functionalities. Facebook Home's strong emphasis on Facebook's apps is great if your whole existence is on the social network, but it interferes with actually using the phone as...well...a phone. Still, if you're someone that can't get enough Facebook in their lives--or crave using stock Android on LTE--then the HTC First is worth checking out.
