If u like photography go for incredible s because the only difference between desire s and incredible s is the camera and screen size. And you need not worry about the performance of desire s or incredible s, they're pretty awesome
i am currently using the htc wildfire... i m fed up of this phone because it hangs alot... i do have multiple task killers but it is quite slow.. also the camera quality is not so good in 5mp autofocus camera... my question is that is it a wise decision to upgrade to this phone or should go for incredible s (P.S. i m a camera lover).. also i want super smooth touch in the phone which rarely hangs... please help !

Battery would probably last around 20 to 24 hours.
Just last month I got an update on my phone and I noticed an improvement on my battery life. I can get through the day without charging twice with moderate use. I have unlimited internet on my HTC desire s and its hard to stop tinkering, haha.
As far as I know you won't have any problems in terms of gaming. Just recently finished Zenonia2 with this phone. :)

battery backup is awesome. Im getting 1.5 days backup and in heavy use with multitasking im getting one full day. I love my htc desire s !!!!! go for it you'll never regret !!!!
my s8500 wave is already showing its age. is the desire s a worthy upgrade? and the jump from bada to android (my 1st android phone if ever) is it worth it? your honest feedback will be most appreciated

When I access all the applications the phone hanged up and I can't even restart it manually. After a few minutes, the phone automatically restarts and won't boot up properly.
I will bring my phone back to Smart today and I hope they can replace it with another unit.

Desire s is a very good handset if u consider games, camera, Build quality, UI and web browsing. If ur main concern is in some other specs like sound quality and battery back-up then theres other handsets.
But keep in mind that all android smartphones got a habit of draining the battery a way too soon

But if u want good sound through its inbuild speaker then go for SONY ERICSSON NEO as ARC is very highly priced (considering its specs).
And regarding battery, it totally depends on ur usage style as all android smartphones consumes lotsa battery.
