It is possible to always try to make the perfect phone, and because technology constantly improves and gets better they can still make customers buy a new phone 6 months as they always implement the latest technology in their phones. They would sell more phones if they made a phone with all the top technology that exists today, and in 6 months that technology is outdated so they then can make another "perfect phone". Not having a led-flash on the Galaxy S or a front facing camera or fully functional 3G-connection software on the Desire is simply stupid and makes customers choose a phone from someone else.

If let's say Desire was a "perfect" super-phone, they will not be Desire HD already. This is to make people who are willing to spend to constantly buy new phone. Few months ago, you bought Desire. Few months later, Desire HD is out, and you want to change your Desire for a Desire HD.
Also, it is almost impossible to please everyone with ALL the functions. They have a lot of balancing to do. If they add everything in, the phone will be very big and bulky. That's why they have to make compromises here and there so that they can fit a lot of thing in a manageable-sized device. I can't imagine how bulky a phone is gonna be if it has a 4" Super Amoled screen, 12MP camera with Xenon flash and Dual LED flash, 32GB internal memory with SD card slot, 1GHZ processor, FM radio, Divx support, projector, secondary camera and many more.
Even if they really squeeze lots of things into 1 bulky device, they will please some, but also turn some down. Some like big phones for the big screen, some prefer to handle a smaller phone. You can never please EVERYONE in the world.
htc introduce new htc sense on desire hd.will it come for desire on update?

...this phone looks cool im gunna buy it...dam i just bought this phone and that one looks cooler!.. dam i just bought this one but that one is even betterrr!.. grrr!
u get the idea
The "radio" I installed is fixing most of my connection problems, but it still disconnects/freezes/looses 3G-connection to often to be ok, even though it loose connection much less often than before. HTC needs to continue fixing their "radio"-driver before it is ok enough. I love Desire but the connection-problems make me go back to Galaxy S. Another problem I have found is that even though more and more apps can be installed on the sd-card they still install parts on the internal memory so the smalll internal memory in Desire is fast proving to small even with the ability to move apps to sd. OpenDesire lets me install almost all apps on sd but even there the apps install parts on the internal memory.
Galaxy S does initially feel a lot less comfortable to hold in my hand, but after having used for a longer period now it actually feel more comfortable than the Desire because its low weight and thin body really makes a difference. Galaxy S has a lot of its own problems but they are most caused by TouchWiz wich I think is the only reason why Galaxy S is lagging. I think s-lcd looks better than Super A,oled, but the screen on Galaxy S is a lot more responsive than the one on Desire.
The conection-problems on Desire makes me never want to by a phone from HTC again because I don not want to risk getting the same connection-problems on my next phone. Nokia never has any connection-problems but today their screen-resolutions are to small and batteries are also to small and Symbian really sucks. And SonyEricsson is the slowest of all companies and still have nothing more than Android 1.6 on X10 and probably newer ever will give 2.2 to X10. IPhone is not worth the extra money. Samsung seems to produce to many phones that they simply forget about support for "older" phones.
Why can not anyone combine all existing technology to a perfekt phone instead of producing a lot of phones that always has something missing? Apple proves that you do not need to produce many different phones but actually an make more money on less but better supported phones.

How is the music and mp3 quality on the Desire? Is it good enough to replace an Ipod? At least from what I heard it's quite bad even compared to Galaxy S.
How much does the battery last with only listening to music (with screen off).
I have finally fixed my connection problems, I installed a new "radio" on my HTC Desire, 32.44.00.32U_5.09.05.30_2 so now HTC Desire is the best Android-phone, it is actually still faster than Galaxy S with its latest beta Froyo installed, Galaxy S still lag but Desire does not lag at all, and with the new "radio" installed I have no connection problems on 3G or wifi. :)
hi guys! Been using HTC Desire for 3 months now. Fab phone but was having connection problems (dropping calls) on Virgin Media network but resolved by selecting GSM only. However still having trouble sending MMS - recipient doesn't receive. Tried variety of ways to send. Any ideas?? Not sure if network or phone??? Considering ending contract. Anyone Help!!!

Obviously something went wrong during the upgrading (perhaps connection cut off halfway etc), but I believe there is no way that you can downgrade it back to 2.1. Not even a factory reset will help. Try to write in an email to HTC, and ask them about it.
TC, 16 Sep 2010With the latest beta firmware, came yesterday, the problem with lag on GalaxyS seem to have be... moreThe latest beta fimware has flash 10,1, but it is still obly beta and the problems with lag has not been fully fixed yet but it is a lot less lag than before. I have tried nany different solutions to try and fix the connection problems with Desire but it is only by installing OpenDesire that the problem is fixed, but that meens I no longer have FM-radio
