I've been searching for at least 3 months to find the wright phone and I was thinking about htc desire, legend and the X10 but I decided to go for the desire! And i have to say that it's a DESIRE to have this desire :D It makes me so happy that i made the right choice to buy this phone!
I hope about a few months i'm still happy that i have this phone haha but i'm so glad it's no windows mobile! Hihi.
don't complain abt the fuel consumption if u want to buy a ferrari. toyota is a great car with great fuel efficiency, so if u cant handle a ferrari, just get a toyota and we all agree that it's good on fuels.
if u get a ferrari, dun complain that it does not have a boot space, don't say that how can someone spend a few millions and not expect to have a boot space to put ur golf set in? obviously, u are not in the ferrari league so just get a car that have a boot then. if u still dun understand what i am getting at, go read up on segmentation and product development, do not flaunt your ignorance here. every mobile cell is built to satisfy different customer, it is that simple.
[deleted post]HTC desire is capatable with US T-Mobile or AT&T (NOT Verizon)... Just make sure your phone is unlocked. If not, contact your service provider and ask for the unlock code. It will take about 2 weeks for the code, you need to pay £15 for admin charge (this won't void your warranty)
I had an upgrade from 3mobile few weeks ago, it came as sim free :) i was very surprised and i am £15 better off ;)
** Stick a different network sim card in and try it out first.... you don't need to do this if you bought your phone sim free **
Hope this is useful.....
Can anyone Tell me, whats the RELEASE date of HTC DESIRE in INDIA..??? one more thing,,, anyone whoz using this Gadget, please tell the about the SOUND and CAMERA quality..?? thnx..
its really funny
why Sony Ericsson fanboys are located in htc desire forum more than SE x10 forum :)
are they just cant believe that htc easly beats their beloved x10 ?!!
come on guys live with it
simple fact : htc desire is way better than SE x10, because :
1-better design (stylish).
2-more Ram (576 mb vs 384mb)handle handle more applications at the same time.
3-better display (amoled vs normal TFT).
4-smaller size (easy to hold in hand).
5-htc sense way better than SE UI.
6-htc online support better than SE support.
7-htc desire has better battery life (x10 users charge their phone twice a day).
and for those who say that SE x10 has better 8 mp camera, simply I would say Guys its not about the mega pixel. higher mega pixels does not mean that the camera is better. its about the picture quality and honestly htc desire has one of the best picture quality cameras around.
long live htc
I just received the HTC Desire and wow, it performed really well. Web browsing was a breeze. UI is very intuitive and you can customize just about anything. Optical track pad is very responsive, even though it's been said that's it's rarely been used to some users, but it's a nice addition to the unit. So far, so good!
No offence to HTC , but u cant say once u've used HTC u cant use any other h/s... may be its vice versa, lol, cozz i've used the Hero and will neva use HTC again not even if its for free... will rather sell to to an HTC lover like you...
Anonymous, 19 May 2010just go and buy,don't need to tell everybody that you want to go to the toilet,just go and do ... moreya i want buy it because its very better phone larger screen and very better camera in pic and video and very very better design
Anonymous, 19 May 2010bad design and outadated camera i wanna buy x10just go and buy,don't need to tell everybody that you want to go to the toilet,just go and do your business, about the opinion on HTC DESIRE,you should know that the firmware update has solved the memory problem.one more thing that once you use Htc,than it is quite difficult to go for other brands.
I own the X10 for 2weeks now, was considering buying the desire earlier, i've been selling both des h/s for a network provider in UK so have used both of dem.
Sense UI on both the h/s's works perfect , its just the HTC desire has an upper hand with the andriod 2.1 as compared to the 1.6 in X10 , 2.1 gives the benifit for multitouch and 16million color res. for which Desire has a AMOLED screen ... X10 has a TFT , desire is one of the h/s which has a lot of demand in the market definately coz the features the h/s offers ... HTC has launched a h/s with the latest Android OS and a really good screen but standard CAMERA, the only thing they did not change is their standard hardware (BATTERY) if u manf. a latest h/s with all features you need to do a bit of R&D on ur hardware as well.. so as for people who say they own a camera and do not need one think abt it you dont carry your Cam every where you go, you need to have a power packed device with everything in it (Esplly when ur payin a huge amt.), i might say i have a laptop for internet i dont need Andriod den m a wrong , i need everything in my phone and i want my phone to work atleast for a day 16hrs which the HTC fails to do, ( If you say ur gonna buy a spare battery u cant keep swaping your battery as the back cover for the HTC is too delicate trust me you wont bother opening it even once in a week) one more thing abt HTC once they come up with a new device they have no support for thier earlier one.. same happened with HERO owners you feel you have an outdated device
THE WORST DRAWBACK IS 512 Mb internal memory on the DESIRE when you have android 2.1 and 1ghz processor your bound to install a lotta apps and you cant do that with the 512mb Internal memory, on Android 1.6 and 2.1 ur apps will work on your internal memory this will not be the case with andriod 2.2 but as i said HTC will not offer an upgrade to andriod 2.2 rather they will launch a new h/s thats their marketting strategy.. the X10 has 1GB internal which is suitable for my application usage
MISSING on X10:
Android 2.1 (October 2010 Andriod 2.1 u/g is available for the X10)
8MP cam with 30 FPS ( did not expect the video to be gr8 but trust me itsss Awesome)
1GHZ is suitable for the Andriod 1.6
Batter life 16 hrs
[deleted post]iphone is the past,welcome to the future "android",by the way app's for android are doubling by the minute and soon they will surpass iphone's app's store,see the amount of android's phones from every manufacturer is increasing and that makes steve jobs can't sleep at night,and now there is double boot of android on the iphone,that shows that everybody is beginning to go for android..(preferring)and man look what is going on in apple,they are losing their prototype everyday(I think this is a different strategy of marketing iphone for free)..tq
The best in it's price range...
One of the many "living" proofs that iCrap is completely overpriced!!!!
"iHate Steve Jobs"
Brilliant phone sofar, 5* quality.
Bought it 3 days ago on Orange, No complaints!
will it be any other colour for this phone?
really like it but the colour.
Thor, 18 May 2010I've had this phone now for about two weeks and I must say its BRILLIANT... except for two rea... moreBattery Problem solution 1: buy a spare one (HTC Genuine battery for £17.50 plus 1.97p+p on Amazon) At least it can be swapped, not like some iCrap product. Slim enough to fit into your wallet :)
Solution 2 : Buy a nokia1100.. battery life last for a week... built in LED torch and FM Radio... (FM Radio should be available within the next few years for some iCrap product... 5th... 6th gen upgrade?)
girl19, 18 May 2010Hi everybody! I have my htc Desire now and i think it's really great when you look at screen ... moreu cant install the apps on memory card bcoz the apps are controlled by android 2.1 snd it will not allow apps on sd card but in android 2.2 u will get this problem sorted..
