Now had mine 4 days. Generally all positive things to say. Android is very intuative, some useful apps freely available. Screen is great and the phone is very customisable. A pity that a noise cancelling microphone was omitted as there is some background hiss. If anyone knows of any remedy, perhaps software based, this would be REALLY useful to know about, as it is the biggest downer I find at the moment. Battery life could do with enhancing as well, so that you have the confidence it will get you through the day.

have just traded in my iphone 3gs for this desire and was best idea i have ever had. phone is more polished than iphone and gives more freedom to have the phone how you want rather than how apple say you must. flash on the website is fantastic and a great feature when browsing the internet. if apple would just sort this out maybe i wouldnt have left.

So, the most important thing is, do you have a big hand(or palm is it?) coz, this 3.7" monster wouldn't feel comfortable on small hand.
i honestly wouldn't suggest any phones that is wider than 3.5", if you wish to use it single handedly.

> In reply to Frans @ 2010-04-02 14:05 from pF59 - click to readOh my word, Went into a Vodafone store today with and upgrade in mind. I was seriously torn between an iPhone and and Android based device. The store guy handed me one of these and within 2 minutes i told him to out it back in the box and ring it through the till, ITS AMAZING! Feels as comfortable as the iPhone but has the goose pimple effect. I work for a major carrier in the UK and have had my fair share of phones in my time and although there is no better all round robust device that does the job than a BB, i will be picking one of these up a second device tmrw morning when its officially available. Stunning!! Pure Beauty! I dont think i have to mention about the app dev potential with this one just google it ;)

Having used win mo for around 5 years now I have to say my new Desire is the dogs bollox, it simply blasts any iphone right out the water in my opinion. Good job it does as it's on a 2 year contract lol!
