Great phone! I dropped one in the pool, and bought another one just because I liked it so much. I smashed the second one, and when I tried the first it worked, even though it was in the pool!

Lots of great support from the modding community. The biggest drawback is its low internal memory which can easily be fixed with a custom rom and a2sd. I had an AOKP rom with 4.2.3 running perfectly.

Unfortunately, I left it on the roof of my car, and it's gone now :( I'm actually considering buying another one, but will likely upgrade to something a little newer and with a bigger screen.

> In reply to RAVI @ 2014-01-04 16:25 from 2S%Q - click to readRoot it and install a custom firmware. I am curently using MildWild os, you can find all the details about this on xda-developers.
With my new os, the phone is blazing fast and I made a 2gb partition for a2sd and now have 2gb internal memory for all my apps.
It's an outdated phone so dont ask it to perform as a new phone.
Just try to make it better yourself or just get a new phone.

From the time I purchased the phone, I haven't able to see any software update for this phone model Desire V.
In addition, phone is repeated hanging & take too much Time to switch out of application. In this regard, I have submitted to company; but the problem is persistent.

Dear Sir,

I have too much problem with handset Desire V.

Handset perform slowly is the usual problem.

In addition, now, I am facing new problem about internet access.
Moreover, while accessing the internet on one SIM other SIM is remaining inactive.
And the message is displayed like no SIM in slot and internet access is automatically get disconnected.
Handset show the message like service is not available. However the network from service provider is available and it was confirmed by service provider and cross verified with other handset.
It took so much time to return back to main menu.

As I have handled and experienced, previously phone was well about the internet access.

Shall I say this handset is faulty and freak?

This time this won't be the request to solve the problem.

This is still a great phone I still use it today......

Upgrade the Rom to supernova where you have unlimited space to install apps......365 apps installed and counting......

It's breaths new life into an old phone

Everyone posting has to remember this. The HTC Desire is almost 4 years old now. It was fantastic when it was first released and had the absolute latest android at the time. Of course 4 years later phones are better. This is still a good phone for a 4 year old phone. Just don't expect it to act like a new phone.

In its day this was a great phone. The camera was never wonderful, but its a phone. Providing the weaknesses in the camera didn't dissuade you this was a great phone to own and use.

Sadly, the increasing size of apps mean that the phone now struggles to cope. So I find that the "low space" message is frequently if not constantly displayed. So I have to clean out the cache and reinstall apps on a daily or weekly basis. I think the main cause of the weakness is the limited internal memory. So when I upgrade to a new phone I'll be making doubly sure it has plenty of internal memory available.
