My iPhone lasted half a day when I first got it too, but has increased since then to 1,5 days. Most hands on reviews stated that the battery can get depleted very quickly if you have all the notifications running. All these extras are nice to have, but you have to sacrifice battery power. As someone else stated - If you gonna buy a Lambo, be sure you are gonna have to stop to refill more often than with a GTi.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2010actually it's 24fpsThe pre-release units were 24fps, but the first update is already available for a few days now that is installed OTA and upgrades the Video to HD 30fps. Or so was stated by HTC.
I ordered the desire as an upgrade on the 27th March...i was told that there would be a delay in delivery due to the fact there was low stock...well i still havent got it yet. Infact i called T-mobile (who i am hating more as every minute passes!, and asked them when i would get it and got two different stories. One that the ordering system was down and the other (from the upgrade department and not the USA call centre) that they had no stock left even though my name was on the original list to get one. Anticipated date when i will get mine is apparently next Tuesday 13th April...thats if they remember or have any in stock....very annoying !!!!!!!!!!:(
To Desire owners, Please tell me Does this device support XviD and DivX videos? Did anyone try? It supposed to support these codecs via a firmware update.
Well, I bought the phone yesterday from Carphonewarehouse, had to pay the handset only as payasyougo was stopped.... Anyway, I have now taken it back today for a refund.... personally I prefer the iphone.... sorry folks! I did find the battery absolutely useless! I know.... it is a smart phone and battery is bound not to last long.... but half a day! nah... not for me the iphone battery is quite poor but better than this one... The actual phone was in itself very nice... internet etc very fast... cameral was extremely good. I think I will wait and see if a new iphone comes out later... if it doesnt will have a rethink.
Voda, 08 Apr 2010Does anyone know if this does the Voice to Text same as Nexus. As for some reason I can't walk... moreDesire doesnt have that voice thingy that nexus 1 has :P. perhaps one day u can load it from android market. i doubt it but it might happen?

Its just a preferance, whether u like the huge 'google' word at the back of your phone, or if u prefer a trackball to an optical pad..just a preferance,
Does anyone know if this does the Voice to Text same as Nexus. As for some reason I can't walk and type, equilibrium issues, and this would be a great aid.
Den10, 07 Apr 2010I'm expecting to make the same move next month when my upgrade is due- Hero to Desire
Does ... moreHi Den10,
The "slower camera" you are talking about is because of an automatic shutter speed, it decreases shutter speed which in return decreases the amount of frames per second it captures, this leads to the slow down. I would think that this would occur on every camera except if they have the ability to record greatly in low lighting conditions, which I doubt in a phone camera, hope this helps =) I am soo looking forward to the HTC Desire lol
hi,there is anyone can answer me?
i already used htc magic and i think its great but there is a problem for transfer file via bluetooth, is desire already fixed this thing?
and one more, when you want to install application, is desire still always use internal memory? or we can intall it at storage card ?
I ordered this phone in March. Now it's been delayed 3 times and no delayed again to 13th April~
Very disappointed in this
really though if the battery is really what people are saying that it lasts 24hours(hopefully not on standby, but with constant usage) then id say thats pretty damn good. Im using the Htc Dream right now and its battery sucks, if i kept it with constant usage with data i dont think it can last the day so i dont mind charging the desire at the end of the day
