i m currently running 2.1 on gsm version of desire

shuggashagga, 22 Jan 2011the battery life on this phone is diabolical thats all i have to say have to charge everyday
... morePeople have to remember that this is a SMARTPHONE. There is always lots going on (unless you've tweaked it to do just what you want).
This phone is differenet from Nokia's etc of old and will need charging regularly.
It could also be your carriers fault that your battery life sucks due to all the extra rubbish they put onto the phone.
Once rooted and running something like DeFrost or any other CM based rom it's easy to get 2 days use out of the phone with a few CPU profiles etc.

the battery does noteven last a day.
SFAN, 21 Jan 2011Furthermore, your source does not prove the life span of Super Amoled Plus, but the increase i... moreRead it right, mate. I never said that SuperAMOLED displays have a longer lifespan than LCD displays or OLED displays having a longer lifespan.
I was replying to one of your previous posts which wrongly mentioned that AMOLED displays have a longer lifespan than SuperAMOLED displays.
From wikipedia :
Lifespan: The biggest technical problem for OLEDs was the limited lifetime of the organic materials. In particular, blue OLEDs historically have had a lifetime of around 14,000 hours to half original brightness (five years at 8 hours a day) when used for flat-panel displays. This is lower than the typical lifetime of LCD, LED or PDP technology—each currently rated for about 60,000 hours to half brightness, depending on manufacturer and model. However, some manufacturers displays aim to increase the lifespan of OLED displays, pushing their expected life past that of LCD displays by improving light outcoupling, thus achieving the same brightness at a lower drive current. In 2007, experimental OLEDs were created which can sustain 400 cd/m2 of luminance for over 198,000 hours for green OLEDs and 62,000 hours for blue OLEDs.
Anyway 5 years is more than enough especially for a mobile phone.
& here's an article about the next gen AMOLED displays.
well, i think the HTC Desire was a great innovation though. but on the other hand, it's got the most terrible video quality I'd ever seen in the history of all classical cell phones i've ever used. Pls. Improve it.
pranav, 21 Jan 2011Phone storage is not so good,,,n have a battery problem...otherwise its very good.Rooting allows you to sort these issues out

If you want to counter my point, then please provide a source that prove me wrong Organic Displays have relatively long life spans and not showing they're increasing life spans.
Nik, 20 Jan 2011Do you have any source to quote that SuperAMOLED has a shorter lifespan than regular AMOLED di... moreLOL, buddy, you know AMOLED and OLED layers have at least 2 - 3 layers of air inbetween the layers. It's to reduce pressure and act as heat sink. Though technology inproves OLED life span, the life span of AMOLED and OLED are still relatively short.
crap yar....i bought this phone 2 months ago with 28k....but now its around 22k ....but this phone is really gud...
Phone storage is not so good,,,n have a battery problem...otherwise its very good.

Please read this before posting wrong information -
I will advice every one not to buy this phone from 3. It seems they go for refurbished phones. I got one from 3 on the 18th of December 2010 and it packed up on the 19th of January 2011 two days after the 28 days warranty.
Their customer service manager is so inept
justin, 17 Jan 2011But my phone's battery has increased about 20% after installing Advance task killer type apps. Android is not like PC operating systems.
On Windows/MacOS/Linux user have responsibility to
Android is designed to take care of your applications, and that is why we should not kill task by ourselves.
My advice (from firsthand) is that you should switch off all things that you do not use all the time:
- Turn on GPS only when you nieed it.
- For data traffic use Wi-Fi or Mobile network (there is no need for both of them to be enabled at the same time).
- Adjust brightness to your visual abilities (I am most comfortable with 30-40%).
- Do not use many widgets.
It depends of use, but my battery last 1,5 day average.
I got HTC Desire (A8181 model) 3 moths ago, and I am very satisfied.
Great dimension, design and performance.
It has Super LCD screen (only A8183 model comes with AM-OLED), great brightness and detail level. Good touch response too.
In-call sound is clear and good.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth works fine.
Compass and GPS works fine too.
And above all, powered by Android Froyo.
Camera and headphones are of medium quality.
There is better solutions in the market (like Sony-Ericsson).
Only disadvantage is small ROM (512 MB).
The main problem is that only 147 MB goes to application storage.
But, this can be solved by rooting your device, and get all permissions.
Really great phone.
Secretly Amoled?, 18 Jan 2011Is it possible that my Desire has a Amoled screen, even though the packaging just says '3.7&qu... moreSoory but No.
It has to say 3.7 AMOLED Display for it to be AMOLED.
They wording on your box indicates it's an SLCD Screen (really wouldn't get to hung up on it)
I liked the Android phones over the iPhone 4 but the battery of HTC Desire does not last over 8 hours on EDGE/GPRS networks if applications are refreshing periodically. Obviously, the phone which comes with application is supposed to have long lasting battery. Otherwise, a basic phone (like Nokia 1210) is good enough to talk. It is major flaw by the HTC product development team.
