I received my Desire last weekend.
The Touch and screen is not as fast and fluent as Apple and some of the features are in places you wouldn´t expect, but Android is quite easy to learn and very ease to install and use the apps.
but htc should also use super amoled...
the only thing best in samsungs....
otherwise htc .. is really "wow"
the only word i have for htc is wow....
this is my dream phone...........
rightly named as desire..........
i can't afford it now sadly......sob sob.....
but i would eventually buy this...
collecting and saving for it.....
and i am really impressed with desire hd rom ported to desire...
samsung 's android phones and others are not very user friendly..
but htc phones are really user friendly and high customisable..
u can change a lot of roms and a lots of customizations also available for these....
Is there a batt that will last longer than a day? my batt life drains very fast.

[deleted post]Hi Ankit/Desire,
Im also a HTC Desire user. Before buying it, did a lot of research on basically Android and 2.2 specifically and its launch with different handsets.
As per my knowledge, 2.2 update is launched seperately for HTC Desire bought from HTC outlets and different when bought from any Telecom Carrier and then the OS is modified as per the Carrier.
So in your case, Android is modified as per T-Mobile and 2.2 will be available only when T-Mobile launches with Android as its upgraded through OTA(Over The Air).
So, kindly check the update in your respective country before replying on India.
Regarding my case, I bought it in India around 1 n 1/2 month back and the day I bought it, I checked the update & it was showing me 2.2 update available which I did it through OTA.
Lyon, 07 Nov 2010yeah and not forgetting the famous/infamous iOs... haha....Yes, I forgot to mention that OS. :D In my opinion Android is the BEST OS now. :) :X
I read a few week ago something about a spy ware on Android. What do you know about it?
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2010Thank you so much!! eventhough I'm not 100% sure, at least I am closer to making a decision, s... moreNo, Symbian and Android are Operating systems, and Android is the better one. There are many Operating Systems(OS) such the Windows Mobile, Bada OS, Mac OS, Palm OS, Symbian, Android, Blackberry OS, and soon Meego(Nokia phones). The Desire HD is a very good phone. The Desire is good too. I will buy the Desire when I will have enough money. :)
Mobilemaster, 07 Nov 2010When I mention good or bad CPU I am talking about their speeds. The Desire HD has a Snapdragon... moreThank you so much!! eventhough I'm not 100% sure, at least I am closer to making a decision, samsung is out of question but I am still debating over N8 and desire ...quite simply because of the camera and how they look - vain? I know :) but can't help it :)
but thank you for telling me about the CPU. Also, is that what android and Symbians are? different types of CPU's? If yes which one is better?
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2010Thank you so much for some good opinion! instead of random phone bashing or marketing opinions... moreWhen I mention good or bad CPU I am talking about their speeds. The Desire HD has a Snapdragon CPU, which is one of the best CPU's on the market. Now you know which phone to buy right? :)
Thank you so much for some good opinion! instead of random phone bashing or marketing opinions - because that's all I have been getting from some forums :(!
also, when you say bad or good CPU, what does that mean? - sorry I am not tech-wiz and don't understand most of this tech talk and so have to ask people's opinions instead :D
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2010Hi, I am looking for a new phone and I'm liking the sounds of N8, HTC Desire HD and Samsung ... moreSymbian ^3 is weaker then the Android 2.2, maybe the Symbian ^4 will beat the version 2.2, but now it is logic that Android is far better then the new Symbian OS. By the way the version 2.3 Gingerbread is coming soon! :X I forgot to mention, that Android has MANY applications. By the way I read a few weeks ago something strange, that all the Android phones has a spy ware... :( I also read that this problem will be resolved. You choose.
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2010Hi,
I am looking for a new phone and I'm liking the sounds of N8, HTC Desire HD and Samsung ... moreGo for the HTC Desire HD, that phone beats all the smart phones! It has a huge S-LCD screen, it has 768 Ram(the N8 has 256 Mb), the Galaxy S has 512 Mb. The Desire HD has a very good CPU, the N8 has a weaker one. The Desire has a good camera, the Galaxy S has a weak camera without FLASH! The N8 has a better camera, but without video light. These are the most important things, and I forgot to mention the battery. It is a little bit weak, but NOT so weak.
Go for the Desire HD, and you will be happy with it. :)
