Why are People complaining about their brand new HTC Desire XXX here?
This is OBVIOUSLY the page about the ORIGINAL HTC Desire from 2010!
Go spam the correct pages, sheeple!
I got the original HTC Desire the moment it was available in Germany in summer 2010. Still have it and still use it!
Of course, Andriod 2.2 Froyo became a bit long in the tooth in 2013 and nearly unusable in 2014, so i decided to make the hop to a 3rd party ROM early 2015. Never looked back! LiquidSmooth-ROM with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) gave my Desire a new life! The way was paved with hurdles (S-OFF, root, recovery, etc.) but now the 5yr old phone is more usable than some of its newer brethen (like Samsung Ace and other cheap Andriod phones plagued with Android 2). I saw a Lollipop custom ROM on the way too :-)
TL;DR: The only first gen Smartphone still worth using today, because it can run Android 4.4.4 KitKat! Money invested wisely.

I'm very irritated with my HTC Desire. I looked online about how to save my storage to the SD Card instead of my phone. And now there is a ton of storage on my phone and it won't save SD Card no matter how many times I set it to save to the SD Card. Secondly, my HTC Desire data won't work because I've connected it to the WiFi. I have a ton of data left and no way to use it when I do need it. For example on road trips my Google Maps is unavailable because of the data issue. I'm so fed up with HTC and I will never be buying another one again.
I'm very dissatisfied with the HTC service provided to me.
I bought the HTC Desire 826 on Jun 14 2015. On Jun 25th 2015, the entire touch sensor of the phone konked off. I went to the service centre and was told that the product will be replaced immediately BUT I have to go to the city of purchase- which is Bangalore and I live in Mumbai.
The service expects me to spend another bomb on travelling to Bangalore from where I bought the phone 10 days ago when any other phone company- Samsung included provides All India Service where I will get a product replacement anywhere in India.
What sort of a 25k phone konks off in ten days? And why put me through the trauma of buying a spare phone? I now have no phone for atleast 15 days while the Mumbai service centre tries to replace the touch sensor of my phone! (that too, they do not guarantee it'll be done in 15 days)
Terrible experience with an HTC product! Please think of the customer's plight and provide All India replacement and service.
I bought the Htc Desire 5 years ago. Used mainly as a phone, some email and web browsing. It is sadly dying and I can only hope my next mobile is as reliable.
After sales service of htc is zero.
Please keep this in mind before buying htc
Hi, I purchased HTC 626g+ last week. Two issues I am facing.
1. HTC claimed that there is magnet sensor. But no sensor available.I checked with CPU z software.
2. no ringtone facility for outlook inbox email folders. If any new mail . No notification ring. But for inbox mail it Toussaint there.
I just want to say that after 5 years, the htc desire that I've bought is still smooth and fine as if I've just bought it yesterday. I bought an extended battery with casing and now it can lasts up to a day standby with 4 hours of sot at max brightness. I use it for watching series( yes i know the screen is rather small), my alarm clock, my backup phone for other line and also to browse fb after I've off my main phone to charge it for the night.
Dropped it countless times and even tho it has some tiny dents and is roughened up, it still looks sexy. ^_^
The HTC-601 dezire is a good phone but the company is having horrible service back up and the service station in Mysore is filled by lazy and lethergic people who does not care to respect the customer.
I gave my phone for repair and they took 10 days to decide what to do, and other 15 days to get the part. Still I am praying for my phone. New purchasers please donot buy this phone, go and purchase anything else.
My camera is not work after I've placed my SD card into the phone
Mine HTC desire
What should I do
It is my first smart phone, and I purchased it 6 months after its release. It's now 5 years since I bought it, and it's still operational.
The only constraint was the limited of size of RAM and ROM. I even rooted it to test custom firmware like cyanogen, and etc.., but I reverted it back to factory. As I uses my notebook day and night, I don't see the importance of changing my phone for an extravagance one. By 2015, the phone can hardly support 2 useful applications without any lag.
Therefore, it's all about how a user uses its phone.
worst company,worst product and worst service.Don't buy any htc product,me myself suffering since last 25 days for service.
bird, 03 May 2015there are some applications that cannot be install. sometimes, can't connect to the computer. cannot canact pc
Number one worst mobile... i am using HTC desire 816 dual sim mobile from past 8 months ... following are the problems i faced.
1) No network ... even near the signal tower.
2) Touch abnormal functioning.
3) Low voice to listener while on call...
4) Low battery backup.
5) Very delicate..
Here one great issue is there.. with the above problems I have given my mobile in HTC service center (Ammerpet, Hyd),
They informed me after troubleshooting, will send sms .. I never get. I planed to call on HTC service center office land line number… they never attend the cal.. I visited service center personally … they said again we will sms you.. after troubleshooting….
So when they will send sms…???? No time spam… after a year??? only god only know….
We have to pray the god for that….
Finally it is worst … service provided by HTC… (TVS electronics Ltd)…
So I request all of you.. to not buy any HTC product….. (U will same your money and Time…)
there are some applications that cannot be install. sometimes, can't connect to the computer.
why is it that all htc mobiles batterys dont last long.2 What is the full meaning of the accronym HTC
HTC phones are nothing but garbage. I bought a htc desire 601 and after a couple weeks the battery started losing its charge and would only last a few hours just sitting on the table on sleep mode. After about a couple of months I plugged it in for about twenty min. and good thing I checked it cause it melted all to hell from the inside out and could have burned my house down.I sent the phone in for warranty repair and they will not cover the damage or replace the phone. They expect you to pay $150.00 even if it is under warranty. DO NOT BUY THESE PHONES THEY ARE A FIRE HAZARD AND WILL BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN.
