Anonymous, 07 Feb 2011i suggested u buy Nokia N8.N8 have hardware-problems, it starts with it turning itself off and then one day it simply will not turn be able to turn on again. This is a problem for many N8, but not all, so you might be one of the lucky ones but you take a big risk if you decide to buy a N8.
N8 is ONLY a fantastic camera for taking pictures, but it does "only" have a xenon-flash so it does not have any video-light. I suggest you to buy a "real" smartphone, not a Symbian, and then buy a dedicated real camera, they are small enough today so you actually can have them both in your pants pockets.
Even if you set your Desire to install "everyting" on the sd-card, some parts of every app will be installed on the internal memory wich will not be untouched, and some apps still can not be installed on sd-card so even if you tell your phone to do so those apps still will be installed on your internal memory.
With data2ext the internal memory will be completely replaced/removed so the "internal" memory then will be on the sd-card, so every app will then be installed on the sd-card because there then does not exist any internal memory on the phone itself anymore. I used GParted Live, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php , to partion my sd-card with Fat32 + 2GB Ext4 + 0.3GB Ext4 + 0.1GB Swap and then used this [ROM][New Sense][26 Jan]RCMixHD v2.0 FINAL 1.72.405.3 with Ownheres newest Data2Ext script v8.4 http://forum.xda-developers.co...php?t=789830
habib, 06 Feb 2011htc desire is an overall nice phone but it is FAIL. i own one for 3 months now. the only flaw ... moreroot your mobile using ADB, and set all your default installations to your SD card. That way you can leave your internal memory untouched. I do that and am happy with the speed
blade, 06 Feb 2011how do you upgrade to froyo 2.2Via O.T.A. Just search for updates through the settings.
My Desire was bought with 2.2 built in as standard. (the latest Desire's will have 2.2 ).
habib, 06 Feb 2011htc desire is an overall nice phone but it is FAIL. i own one for 3 months now. the only flaw ... moreThe small internal memory is not a problem anymore, because Data2Ext give my HTC Desire an internal memory of 2 Gb.
"2079 quadrant score, with this rom [ROM][New Sense][26 Jan]RCMixHD v2.0 FINAL 1.72.405.3 with Ownheres newest Data2Ext script v8.4, and I now have 2 Gb internal memory I used this partition layout Fat + 2GB Ext4 + 0.3GB Ext4 + 0.1GB Swap
rom is on this xda-page http://forum.xda-developers.co...php?t=789830 "
htc desire is an overall nice phone but it is FAIL. i own one for 3 months now. the only flaw that makes it FAIL is the internal memory for application. it is not stated here which would be around 80 mb. it is just not enough for application downloads. i recommend people not to buy.
I wan't to buy my first smartphone and I discovered HTC Desire. But then.. I found out about its poor internal storage :( so my question for the geniuses out there is: What are our options for installing apps to the micro SD card (as this obviously is the best way to solve the poor internal storage problem)?
Also, I just wanna share that before deciding to go for Desire (actually, I'm not that decided yet), I've considered buying the following phones:
- Motorola Milestone 2: I believe everything in it is great, EXCEPT the Motoblur UI :( it's just far from reaching the beauty HTC Sense UI brings on the table.
- HTC Desire Z: Again, I was disappointed with the internal storage, plus I didn't like the Z hinge.
- Apple iPhone 4: Though everything seems smooth in this phone, I'm just really not happy with all the restrictions Apple has been imposing on their customers. No flash, HEAVILY dependent on iTunes, and A LOT MORE.
So there you have it. I hope you guys could help me out with all the details about Desire and stuff. Thanks in advance for those who would :)
Deborah, 06 Feb 2011Hi, Can someone tell me if this has macro mode on the camera? Thanks.Not quite a macro lens but it can take pictures from only about 3" away from the target very clearly.
Arani, 04 Feb 2011Can someone tell me if the desire with froyo supports Divx/Xvid out of the box? also, does it ... moreHey, yes the desire can play 720p but only in the format it records.
A better option which uses less space but looks better would be to use handbrake (a video conversion program) and halve the resolution of the chosen clip :)
hope that helps

Pious, 04 Feb 20112days ago I have purchase a desire. I am happy with its performance but its battery is not sat... moreDo not use task killer or any energy saving apps..it consumed more cpu power n memory.
Pious, 04 Feb 20112days ago I have purchase a desire. I am happy with its performance but its battery is not sat... moreThis is regular behaviour, depending what applications you're running (And how many). If you're using it frequently, it should last you the day unless you're watching videos/playing games and such. Hope this helps.
Pious, 04 Feb 20112days ago I have purchase a desire. I am happy with its performance but its battery is not sat... moreIt's just because battery hasnt calibrated yet. After a week or two it should work just fine which means about 1.5 day of normal usage.
