Ekton, 14 Apr 2011Guys, will gingerbread update fix the low memory problem of the desire.No. Internal memory is hardware issue. Rooting and Custom ROM with Data2SD can help...
htc desire is even better than n8 ,, n8 has a lot of problems specially the screen ......

really dude.. that was a good one...
i cant even imagine comparing functions of n8 to desire... its lightyears away dude..
its like comparing abacus to a core i7 notebook...
definitely abacus (thats N8 for you) is user friendly and most of us used to own one.. but is just way too old for the function it offers... and a Core i7 notebook (thats desire dude) is definitely more advanced and is just farting the functions the abacus is struggling to give...
think again dude

Don't you even dare compare Nokia N8 to HTC Desire :) I don't mean to be rude, but saying that "No doubt! NOKIA N8 is better than this" really makes me laugh :)) have fun with your phone mate :)
No doubt! NOKIA N8 is better than this with 12 mp carl zeiss lens + xenon flash..plus it has an instant 16gb of internal memory..there's no new in this set..i don't care if it's android or symbian OS what matters is that the feature a phones has..
aks, 11 Apr 2011thanks buddy..For more advise google android forums and look as the Desire all things root section.
Lots of good advise and people that are willing to help.
aks, 10 Apr 2011after rooting my Desire
can i update to 2.3 OTA official firmware in future?No OTA updates can break the phone after rooting.
ROMs that have been developed by a good dev will actually have the check for updates removed to avoid this, however some won't.
You can always go back to stock after rooting if you feel the need to go back by downloading and running the correct RUU. This will then enable OTA again.
However, rooted normally means you get the updates first if you went with a good dev.
I had my desire already for almost a year, still love it to the max! I had flashed several ROM, from sense to non-sense I see no point upgrading to another phone anytime soon, oh yeah when I compare to my friend's LCD(later) version, my AMOLED looks so much brilliant in terms of colour and contrast
exactly 7weeks with my desire.. no issues whatsoever, battery ok, browsing, audio, gaming ok.. everything great! tinkered with pdf and quick office yesterday, browsed every file, magazines, documents, etc etc, fabulous! can't wait for the gingerbread OTA, though froyo is still awesome.. i will have this phone for years to come!
aks, 10 Apr 2011after rooting my Desire can i update to 2.3 OTA official firmware in future?No, but you can use many different ROMs based on the update after it comes out!
Desire...1month and 21days...
still lovin it.. i just realized the other day that i can link my contacts to my fb account, then all of the infos in my friends profile became part of my phone book.. i was so amazed.. i can even do things in my friends fb wall,pics,etc.. all in my phone book...(im so dumb, its just now that i realized it)..
**take note.. it just "links" ur "chosen" contacts to their specific fb acct.
i personally dont like all my fb friends showing unnecessarily in my phone book so i had it turned off ever since (but u can do that if u want)....
after installing and using Keyboard for 2.3 for a while im still having a problem sometimes when texting (damn big thumb).. googled other options in keyboard for android and just installed Smart Keyboard trial (free version with stupid pop up at first use).. im liking it now for it has a lot of options for the keyboard and i love the keyboard theme (got the galaxy colored theme... dark keyboard with blue pressed keys.. cool!).. i just hope it'l be better than the Keyboard for 2.3...
im really loving my desire.. overall functions and features has always been amazing me since day 1..
simply the best.. better than all the rest...!!
