Why isn't this phone on the Top Chart whilst older models and phones with lower scores are kept there?
This is probably the best phone on the market as far as price / ratio is concerned.
Its price has gone down considerably and it is a handy phone, not too bulky, with a brilliant, crisp and vivid high resolution screen, full of great specs which will stand the test of time.
Obviously, this is not the world's best phone.
Better phones are constantly coming out, so you have to make your decisions according to the moment when you're buying and the money you have/wish to spend.
That is why this phone is great. I admit it should have a 3.5mm audio jack and that is a serious fault, but other than that, it does everything you need, it allows you to watch movies, enjoy your songs, take quite good occasional photos and use GPS, all in a very handy "package".
As I've mentioned, the screen is great and you have loads & loads of software to load...
So, as far as Software and OS are concerned, you've got LOTS & LOTS of compatible applications, games and GPS Programmes, and,
the last, but by no means, the least, you've got...
... where you can exchange experiences, opinions, learn A LOT and personalise your phone in a way you wouldn't imagine! :)
That is why I own an HTC Diamond2 and I'm really very happy with it.
A phone that stands the test of time!
Best price-quality ratio on the market.
Handy, great build quality, reliable, great specs and affordable.
I really like my Diamond2.
For the price, it's a bargain.
Works as agenda, phone, GPS, Office suite, mp3 player, video plaayer and plenty of games available.
What more could you ask for?
Strongly recommended. =)
A great phone indeed!
[deleted post]Firstly, don't get me wrong, but I think you should consider editing your message as displaying your phone number on the Internet is somewhat risky.
Secondly, you must be aware it depends what kind of mobile Internet you have. Skype may be blocked.
Finally, you can always try to download it from your mobile via skype.com/m .
Anyway, try to visit
and find out more informaton about installing skype.
kimchichi, 08 Apr 2011Is touch diamond 2 better than mozart?? Here is The GSM Arena comparison:
The Mozart is more recent, but it has lost a front camera, so you won't be able to make video calls.
The OS tries to force you to use a "Martket" (like Apple does) where you have to pay MS for ANY software you use/download.
As it will happen with any comparison/option you'll ever make, both phones have specific advantages and disadvantages.

Comes with a soft Firewall / Virus Checker / Security Fucntion to remotely locate and/or delete data should phone be stolen/lost

I use wifi on a daily base, but usually to check mail, or visiting very standard websites, like news pages and gsmarena.com, so if I am correct, there is not much to worry about.

I don't know of anyone who has had its WM phone ever infected, but...
... It all depends on the kind of sites you visit and there is no such thing as zero-risk in life.
As for myself, I have never installed any anti-virus programme on my phone and I use WiFi connections on a daily basis.
I only run all kind of security/safety programmes (while on my PC) BEFORE installing any software into my phone.
Speak with other users and try to make an informed decison.
Good Luck with your phone: It is a GREAT phone!
doen anyone uses a mobile virus scanner or something like that? Ik use this phone a lot for surfing on the web through wifi, so is it recommendable to use such a programm on the device?

Actually, they should be compatible.
Try reading the manual and check operationality of your device with other compatible phones. Could you have a faulty unit? Good luck.

I am using this phone for the last 9 months, is a very good phone ever i used, only the problem i felt that it has no separate head phone jacket, head phone jacket and charger socket are same.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2011Yes, it's got a light sensor.
HTC has included an accelerometer for screen rotation detection... moreA fine phone, no matter how you look at it.
And it even has video call, something that many current phones seem to have "forgotten"...
All in all, the Diamond2 is a great affordable phone that will stand the test of time quite gracefully! =)

It has 'zillions' off ROMs, Updates, Applications, Games and all kinds of software available:
The HTC Diamond2 has lots of online users ready to suggest, help out and discuss whatever doubts you may experience.Simply google your question or visit (just as an example):
The Diamond2 still allows you up-to-date games and applications, utilities and GPS Programmes: You name it! =)
Just remember to keep your battery fully charged whenever you're charging/updating your phone!
Sure, it's not perfect, but it IS a GREAT Phone by any standards!

So if I am correct, the update is packed in a file which need to be copied on the device itself. I am used to sony ericsson updates which are directly from the internet on the phone. This is a great phone I hope they will make such a devic e with the same kind of styling soon because the new HTC devices are not really my taste!
adrian, 17 Feb 2011This is a very good phone, with god specs and features!! Everytime this phone is in the top ra... moreUpdates are NOT directly downloaded into your phone.
1. Make sure you have Microsoft ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center installed on your PC.
2. Connect and synchronize your device with your PC via Microsoft ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center using a USB cable.
3. Copy the update, which is an .exe file, to your device. To install the update, tap the .exe file and follow the on-screen instructions.
This means you must have your phone's battery charged and I'd advise you to keep your PC plugged in.
It is important NEVER to disconnect your phone while it is being updated, but that is pretty easy to do.
The process takes some minutes (depending on the update) and it is pretty straightforward.
I've always upgraded my phone via HTC official site and I've never experienced any problems.
Don't forget: Make sure you read the instructions carefully and everything will be fine!
P.S. - I also enjoy voting for my Diamond2 AND I also wonder why it keeps being voted out of the Top Chart... but I'm not giving up!
Good Luck with your phone!
