It's superior to any smartphone at this time. The only issue with Galaxy is the plastic material quality, which is very cheap, at this level HTC is much better, also as ergonomy, design and feeling.
In my previous post with various queries, I forgot to add that despite the Desire not having DivX/XviD, does it matter? Will it affect watching videos on our phone? If so, are we able to install it or a piece of software that can play such videos?

Geet Singh, 11 Oct 2010Hi Partha - Seeing your usage criteria...this phone is not meant for U. Im myself using HTC... moreThanx a lot for your opinion and suggestion. I listen to music a lot so sound quality is therefore a major factor,and I also browe the net almost the entire day. So I need good battery. Can you suggest me a phone? I have some preferences. iPhone 4/ N8/ Galaxy S. Can you plz tell me which best suits my uses. Regards.
I can't sync my phone with my PC. Please advise. I have tried several times. I need to do this as I want to personalise my SMS tones.
Out of curiousity, what size SD cards do you all have in your Desire? I removed the 4 GB one supplied with the phone and have inserted an 8 GIG one.
Androidmarket aside, where can I download a wide selection of Android games? Please tell me from your experience.
I will buy a newer digital camara in December but do you think that a future Android update will make our Desire run HD on 1080p?
Finally, is there a way to sort out the SMS messages like what I was used to on my Nokia? I am never going back to Nokia I must stress. What I mean is SMS sorted by Inbox, Sent, Outbox, Drafts etc.

If u r based out of India....then GPS - Why?? we do not have that equipped GPS here and above that No need of GPS atleast in India on current scenarios.
Anyways....if U want to use Lots of GPS & Net then follow my below advise....as More GPRS usage(GPS is also using GPRS) Over Heats the Phone.
This is Indeed a SmartPhone...a very god phone..class apart...more elegant that iPhone....but then few things are to be compromised which mainly comprises of limited GPRS usage('coz of Over heating & battery life consumption).

rubbish HTC Desire ??
hold your guns pal. your phone is crashing? a number of possible reasons for that:
have you upgraded to android 2.2 or still on 2.1? if on 2.2, then following possible reasons:
have you bought or tried to de-brand your phone? if you are not an expert in this aspect, do not try it.
if your phone software version is 1.15 instead of 1.21 and you tried to update to froyo, your phone is quite likely to have different types of problems.
if you have upgraded using the roms available on the xda forums on a branded phone, you will face problems.
if you are still on 2.1 and that is crashing, i suggest you read up different forums about this and write your experience. someone is bound to help you out.
best of luck
