can someone tell me the battery performance of this phone?????
i just bought htc hd2 and im disappointed with its battery life. is it because of the snap dragon processor or the sense ui??? im already considering selling it and the desire will be my next target just want to confirm with you guys the battery performance cos i email a lot with my phone thanks
The desire is a superb almost perfect phone. If one does not mind the size I believe the perfect phone is just around the corner 3 months to be exact blowing the competition to bits is the Htc Evo. It will be flawless lacking nothing. It will by far surpass the Samsung i9000 galaxy s, the iPhone 4 g and even the amazing htc desire.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010HELLO,
can somebody tell me how is the speaker quality,is it as good as the htc hd1..tqi do not hv the htc hd1 but im gna do my best to answer ur question based on test results.
according to tests, the ringtone and music on desire is louder than the hd1 and hd2. the volume of the speaker when talking to some1 is slightly less loud. the hd1 volume for voice is rated at 77.7dB whereas the desire is rated at 76.6dB. its not a major difference and i think in this case the clarity is more important than the volume. u do not want amplified noise.
i cant post pictures here so ill hv to give u a link to the audio tests done by gsmarena.
as u can c the line on the graph is much smoother.
also look at the tables and go by these rules:
- signal to noise ratio: higher wins
- dynamic range: higher wins
- total harmonic distortion (thd): lower wins
- intermodulation distortion (imd): lower wins
- stereo crosstalk: higher absolute value wins
also note that gsmarena says the speaker is great on the htc desire so i wud guess u wud be satisfied with it. that said, u shud try to use a working model b4 u buy it. i hope i helped

I heard that the HTC Incredible is made only for CDMA... morethere is a cdma version for america and that will release on april 29th. a gsm version has not yet been announced. it is rumored. but so far every android handset that is available in the states has also been available in europe and parts of asia. usually what happens is the name is changed but the specs remain identical. (a good example is motorola droid which arrived in europe as the motorola milestone around a month after the american release. in america the htc incredible is nicknamed droid incredible) if htc does plan to release the incredible outside of america, i wud guess they wud release it in summer time after ppl hv bought lots of htc desires. it wud seem senseless to release it just now bcos then they wud cut the sales of the htc desire. another example is the google nexus 1. it is almost identical to the htc desire. nexus 1 was released a while b4 the desire but only in certain parts of the world even tho it was gsm.
so while the gsm version of htc incredible might not be called incredible, there probably will be a gsm version with similar specs as the htc incredible. however, i cannot guarantee that there will be a gsm incredible. i can only make guesses. im sorry i cannot provide a yes or no answer here.

here r a few reasons why htc desire will be an upgrade 4 u:
both r the same size and use amoled, but the htc desire has a greater resolution so pictures shud be more crisp on its screen. probably better for video playback as well.
CPU & MEMORY:
it has less internal storage (and this might be a problem if u plan on downloading tons of apps cos android doesnt allow u to save apps to sd cards) however both r upgradeable by 32gb (so u cud store all music, videos, pictures... and use all the internal memory for apps. or root it but this voids ur warranty). anyway the htc desire has more than double the ram so multitasking (and single tasking) run smoothly. also the cpu is a lot more powerful. pls watch this video i found (yeah i know the music is terrible):
it shows how smooth it runs, and it compares it to its rival from se, the x10, which as u can c, takes longer to load files and the display is worse. (look at the blacks in particular)
htc has a few features which r not essential, but a welcome upgrade from the samsung omnia hd. first of all its got multitouch. it also has an optical trackball, a nice touch for navigation especially if u hv greasy hands and dont want to make smudges on the display just after u hv cleaned it. android of course has an app marketplace with lots of free apps. as a percentage it has the greatest amount of free apps (out of all the app stores). the sense ui is also a joy to work with. u hv lots of widgets/shortcuts and several homescreens so finding what u need and customizing content is easy. the htc is also slightly smaller, so more pocket-able.
i hope i have been helpful and i wish u the best of luck in choosing ur next handset.
True if that is important to you then I guess it has to be the Samsung i9000 galaxy s as it has the 8 and 16 g internal memory
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010I have sorted that issue with adding the 16 g micro sd.but you cant install apps on memory card :(

I heard that the HTC Incredible is made only for CDMA networks not GSM, Is that true??
Looking at the comments below and being an owner of both the xperia 10 and the desire I have to say that the xperia is a great looking phone great camera but has the 1.6 software which is a shame and bad battery life. In my opinion after using both the HTC desire comes out ahead. They are both great phones raising the bar for all the other mobile phone companies.

I use and change many many phones. I have the xperia 10, nexus one,iPhone and I agree with the previous post the HTC desire is absolutely fantastic. The frontal lower buttons are very functional and one has to use the phone to appreciate all the little additions that make it amazing. Well done HTC. I believe it is the best Android phone around.

can somebody tell me how is the speaker quality,is it as good as the htc hd1..tq
An ideal phone that would satisfy everyone should have all the features of desire and the camera of xperia. Could this phone be the incredible? Still it's clear that desire is better then xperia.
I have atm a samsung omnia hd.
I want to buy another phone because my hd is getting really slow after a year usage, i know the hd has better photo and vid recording but i dont really use that very much except sometimes photo's ...
I think the 5mp cam of the desire will be enough for my usage.
Is it a big step forward or not ??

If it's used as internal storage (like the Samsung 8/16GB) then you won't be able to install apps to it."
--> true i forgot about that. thanks. i did look it up and i found this: "The phone actually reports having 748MB of "phone memory," while every spec we've received shows 512MB of ROM. HTC tells us that apps can be installed to the entire 748MB."
ill try to find out more when its released in europe.
hamid, 24 Apr 2010hey i dont say x10 camera better or desire better everyone know this x10 is better i say camer... more"hey i dont say x10 camera better or desire better everyone know this x10 is better"
--> those ppl dont know the truth then. the desire is the better phone and its from a better company. name 1 innovation or anything se was the 1st to come up with?
"i say camera is one of important factor in phone but u say again camera isnt important"
--> i have said this over and over again: ppl who really care about the camera on their phone will buy a 12mpx cam phone. true the cam on x10 is better but that is the only thing on the x10 thats better. i can live with a slightly worse cam. what is so hard to understand about this?
"if u want good camera go buy a cameraphone ok guys u dont want hear the ture u r blind fan of htc"
--> as opposed to an se fan who has got nothing better to do than constantly post the cam on x10 is better so buy it instead. seems ur the blind 1. videos and pictures of side by side comparisons dont lie. x10 is the worse phone at everything beside taking pictures and recording video. but the display on htc desire is better for viewing pictures and video. u can pretend the x10 is better or u can face the truth. the choice is urs and knowing ur an se fanboy ull probably make the wrong 1.
"bye but sony like no other"
--> yeah sony like no other. bcos all the others r better than sony. need i remind u of the se pureness? u cant c a thing on the display when u take it outside. perhaps theres a reason y displays r not transparent. but at se they dont care about this, they care about useless gimmicks which is why they continue to lose marketshare. the only reason they made a profit is bcos the price of their handsets increased. if u se fanboys r willing to support inefficient companies thats fine by me but then dont come here and repeatedly say x10 has a better camera so its a better phone.
