I just got the desire and notice some sort of static and hissing sound when on a call. The other caller can hear me just fine but I am getting this static hissing sound. Is anyone having the same problem? I have read on some other blogs about people having the same issue. I love the phone but that part is driving me nuts.
@ All Who Know what the Fu*ck they are talking about

What are the hopes to get the battery life improved?

thanks llhandroid i really apriciate.comon guys share your experience about the battery life plz..thanks
I have been using Desire for three weeks, what I can say to those of you who are about to buy Desire is simply you will not regret.
Just waiting for HTC to release new firmware upgrade to Desire, which will bring Desire divX support, 720p hd video recording functions and dlna (acc to rumours).
Liquid, 07 May 2010I want too buy this one but the comments about the battery arent soo good.Who owned a desire P... moreI am using my Desire for three weeks; in the first couple of days battery life seemed to me a big matter as it had not used to last a full day, but it was simply because -like everyone do- i "played" with it too much, for ex. looking in every single menu options, settings, widgets, also installing and managing contacts, mail accounts etc. etc. btw, installed more than 50 apps from the market (some of them uninstalled later) example? compass, google sky map, bubble level, barcode reader, dice, currency and unit converter, metal detector, a couple of games etc. etc. So it was totally normal that it could not last a day. Meanwhile, i read some opinions about so called "task killer" and tried 3 different tas killer (not same time) for 2-3 days without seeing no change. Then, upon reading more serious and comprehensive article about Android OS, have figured out that using task killers is not necessary, besides leading more battery drain in return. So, not using task killer anymore. what you need to do is just keeping wi-fi, gps and bluetooth connections off when not in use, disabling unnecesary update services (weather, stocks, email etc.) you can still update them manually whenever you want. There is a widget available natively in Desire, named "power control" to on-off those functions with a single tap on it.
Finally, in spite of my 3G/HSDPA data connection is open 24hrs and using live wallpaper as background battery life is appr 48 hrs now.
A recommendation; let the battery go empty fully then charge it fully by keeping plugged in at least 7-8 hrs at the first time. In later usage, do not recharge unless remaining battery level lowers than 15% (preferably wait until it closes itself) then do not unplug before it fully charged.
Note: Also I am using a third party battery level app to see exact level in % which is active all the time (so drains battery as well), and another app saying who is calling (a text-to-speak app) which is also active and drains battery constantly.
when HTC evo will released in the few next months in america, can i buy it and use it in the middle east, can i unlock it to use with another mobile service available in the middle east??????
I want too buy this one but the comments about the battery arent soo good.Who owned a desire PLZ just share your experience here abo the battery life.I need sugestions. Thanks

This phone is almost perfectly complete. My only issue and the sole reason why I probably wont purchase it is the weak battery. For this reason I will buy the uglier Samsung Beam. For those who have this - especially heavy users, how often do you charge it? I dont want a scenario where I am carrying a spare battery. Nor do I want to be carrying a charger 24/7 or leaving it in the charger. My current phone is the Nokia E72. I charge this about once every three, four days. I need a beast of a battery new phone. This phone has everything but damn - that battery. Why can't they make these smart phones have super strong batteries? They know we will use it for so many things apart from the conventional making calls (web browsing, listening to music, photography, gaming etc). The only smart phone that seems to hae a decent battery is the Samsung Beam. I am still unsure but swinging towards that phone.
Andrei, 06 May 2010Yeah, the phone is a great inbetween :-s. I for one got held back by the lack of games (I mean... moreI think EVO is only for sprit. If you want used ir eorope, you will need buy there and unlock for other operator.

I think about the desire and the BB 9700 bold. and the end will decide that the android is for me better choice.

If I am wrong pls tell me so :)
@ Stefan pls tell me your opinion if u buy the Desire.
When is the release date for the EVO in Europe?
Christopher, 05 May 2010This Phone here is absolutely great, no doubt about it.
But, what i ask is - how and why did ... more...WAS.
Many people including myself use various handsets, and the HTC Desire is technically superior to iPhone in every respect, but it boils down to what you want in life. If your a businessman who depends on mission critical reliability then an iPhone would be the last thing you would use, and most people in the intelligent business community will stick with the BlackBerry, on the other hand kids will want a Ninteno DSI or a Sony PSP, or iPhone, but the HTC Desire is somewhere inbetween the iphone and the BlackBerry.
