hello all, any thing about sat nav(gps) other then google maps..like garmin or papago
after SE fanboys now comes a Nokia one? oh man.... this will never end haha...
Just a reply to all you bs'ing about the desire and the x10. I have used both of them and they have both gone back. The desire because the loudspeaker is cr*p and the x10 due to the poor call quality. The loudspeaker isn't much better on the x10 either.
Looking forward to getting the n900. So chew on that!
Hi everbody. Ive had both phones Desire first then the x10. i went back to the desire as the name says it all.HTC are without dout the best phone makers reguarding andriod market. They design smartphones. Sony are good makers but they cant compare there technology with HTC, It realy is as simple as that.
to be frank I think these jokers who come to other phone forums are just manipulating the real interested buyers these guys are just free and badly brought-up with lower mentality then others, because this forum is for Htc Desire(owner's and future buyers)
why are they trying to promote X10 in this forum,if a review is there just read it and don't decide for others.
As we know every Htc Desire's owner is happy with their new toy..tq.

It's ridiculous though how he even started that story about names as some sort of (probably the lamest ever) argument in favor of X10. All in all, he's the one with inferiority complex because of its need to impose his opinion and terrorize us with it.

its like they have been payed buy SE or something..

lets look at the names SE have given their phones:
-satio / idou
-g700 business edition (basically a g700 without a camera, the name to me wud hv indicated improved version, but i guess thats not the case)
u dont find any of these names cheesy?
("look at me im so pure, i only have the essential parts, im yours for just $900. i also hv a calming effect when u cant see my display in daylight") i used to make fun of iphone fanboys until SE made the pureness.
"and the next one is named even worse. The Incredible. seriously, u wana buy phones from a company who gives their phones the cheesiest names ever ?"
--> at least se fanboys will no longer be able to say. its got 8mpx instead of 5, buy x10. if the incredible doesnt tie with the se x10 in a spec category, it beats the x10 in that category. x10 doesnt hv any feature better than the incredible. also if u dont find any of SE's names for phones cheesy u must be deaf and blind.
"how much of a inferiority complex have they got ? lol."
--> cud it be their way of marketing (take diamond for instance)??? btw speaking of inferiority, SE had asked HTC to make the x1. and y does it take SE so long to release a phone after they have announced it? they just announce phones with great specs but then are usually not first to deliver a phone with those specs. (no inferiority complex here).

--> so a monster is higher ranked than god? i dont think so
"x10 very better from desire i dont buy a phone with outdate cameta 5 mp are u kiding me?"
--> its not the cam that most important. desire has more ram, better display, smaller size, and a few extras. 5mp is not outdated, its just standard.
"many user want smartphone (android) with 8 megapixel and amazing video recording
if u want buy a 12 mp cameraphone u must buy a satio from se"
--> what about samsung pixon 12, samsung w880 with 3x optical zoom? but somehow u dont seem to understand that a camera isnt the most important feature on a phone. otherwise u wudnt be constantly posting about the x10 hving a better cam than the desire and y ppl shud buy x10 simply bcos of the cam. u hvnt given any other reasons. the opinion of fanboys is useles.

--> where i am its the other way round. and u cant say which phone is better depending on how many ppl buy it. lots of ppl buy iphones and how good r they?
"2. why can't i have a good cam in a high end phone ? I'll grant you that 5 MP isn't bad, however the performance is worse than my old N95 5 MP cam. by your argument, if people want more memory they should buy a desktop, or the iPhone users can say, if u want multitasking, go buy a desktop or a laptop. that argument doesn't work."
--> se x10 does hv a better cam but it cant multitask as well. i prefer multitasking. but this is about preferences.
"3. screen: as i said in both of my posts, you need to see the phones side by side to make a true comparison, not go by the specs or the videos or reviews. i have seen and played with both phones side by side."
--> if u had actually clicked the links in my previous post u wud hv seen that it is a side by side comparison photo of the screens under light and in the dark and even tilted at angles. i hv seen & used both. the x10 screen is just worse. perhaps itll get better with android 2.1 or 2.2.
"4. X10 does support 32 GB. check any of the X10 blogs or forums."
--> according to SE's webiste for the phone it doesnt support 32gb. if it does support 32gb then that shows the quality of the ppl running the company website. ill take ur word 4 it.
"5. 4GB : GSM Arena and techradar both say Desire ships with 4 GB. however i'll take your word for it. That goes to show how much u can trust online reviews."
--> true out of the box it comes with 4gb but retailers where i am give u an extra 8gb card as a promotional thing. like i said it is very dependent on the location.
"6. X10 no multitasking ? are you kidding ? Multi-tasking works fine in X10."
--> sry i meant desire has better multitasking.
"7. multitouch: i said its a personal preference because it depends on how people prefer to work in their apps whereas camera is a hardware and spec issue. if it is really that important, X10 will have it in Sep. apparently your perfect phone also has to wait for video upgrade and app memory issue for which there is no date yet."
--> true both of them need updates. but the product manager of se x10 said there is also a hardware problem with it so it wont support multitouch. if that persons wrong, then SE have a terrible manager.
"8. performance: my friend's X10 works fine. transitions and apps both. he did turn off the animations because of the battery drain, but HTC isn't faring much better in the battery issue either."
--> performance on both is fine. but the x10 does need more processing power for its ui. this means less processing power for other apps. true the x10 also has better battery life.
"10. Sense UI. i agree it has more eye candy, but does it help users to accomplish tasks more efficinetly than SE's UI ? i would say not, but if someone prefers a more catchy interface i wouldn't fault them either, just keep an eye on that battery meter however."
--> i wud say SE has more eye candy such has several tones of blue and animations for contacts and such. sense ui has widgets or shortcuts which are faster to work with than going thru menus to open the individual app. i admit the battery is worse on desire.
"in the end, i did say ( in both of my posts btw), that this is MY take. i suggested users should try the phones first hand and not rely on reviews or spec sheets or videos as we all know they can be biased or manipulated or just plain wrong."
--> dont worry i tried them both
"For the sake of fairness, even if the Desire wins on couple of points that u mentioned, it loses on all the other points. On aggregate, X10 still wins. in my opinion. :)"
--> thats ur opinion, im just saying mine. besides there r extras that r not mentioned (but lets not get into that). there is no strong reason to choose 1 over the other. its mostly personal taste.

How boaring the phone you have could be. cuz you have more time posting to an HTC forum than playing with your newly purchase phone...
Lyon, 20 Apr 2010lol seriously this forum is for ppl who are contemplating to buy Desire and have questions on ... moreTell me about it... The HTC Desire forum page is for what else other then the HTC Desire! It seems particular individuals just want to justify there purchase of the Xperia X10 by outright talking rubbish about a competing phone such as the HTC Desire.
I've had my Desire for almost a week now, and I believe it's really the best smartphone I've ever owned. Everything is smooth, works well, the Sense UI is just wonderful to use. Only thing I had to fix right away was downloading a new virtual keyboard from the Market because the built-in one had a quite ugly solution to entering swedish letters (åäö), holding the A or O letter and choose from the popup. The app "Scandinavian Keyboard" fixed that for me :)
Just a little note to the ones arguing that the X10 is better, I was at a phone store today to get a case for my Desire and the salesperson wanted to have a look at my phone (because they hadn't got them in stock yet) and he said it felt much better than the X10 (which they had been selling for a couple of weeks).
He described the X10 as a bit sluggish and not as touch-responsive as the Desire and told me the SE user interface is quite cr*ppy in comparison to Sense.
I usually don't trust sales people but this one knew he wouldn't sell me a phone because I already have a brand new one so he really had no reason to lie.
