vlmxs, 11 Aug 2010What do I choose HTC Desire or Samsung Wave? Can't decide on this...i think htc has better hardware and software than samsung

mado, 09 Aug 2010what's better n8 or htc desire in all qualites plz replay fastThe software on the N8 is really poor. I suggest that you get the Desire and update to Android 2.2.
I'll give a lifetime supply of metaphorical cookies to anyone who can tell me when the unlocked Asian HTC Desire will get Froyo. My software number is 1.19.707.7 update-1, and my phone is unlocked and unbranded if that helps
mado, 09 Aug 2010what's better n8 or htc desire in all qualites plz replay fastDesire 100%, get this beauty, you won't regret it!
I was on the verge of getting this phone then the Samsung Galaxy S became available on my network for €100.00 with my plan. A friend of mine has this and he said it was lighting fast and a great all round phone.
No front camera on the desire but then again, when was the last time you used a front camera on any phone.
Hope to be picking up my Galaxy S later today. They are holding one in the shop for me.
The iphone is only for people who swallow most advertising crap that is sent there way from apple. Like the amount of looser's that qued in the rain all night for the ipad :) (Gob shite's)
I have used a lot phone and finding HTC Desire as one of the best phones. Customize wise, far better than iPhone.
Battery life and speakers could have been better.
ab, 09 Aug 2010Dear SS,
Please let me know as you are already using skype on nimbuzz app...is there any diff... moreThere are 2 major differences when you use Skype via Nimbuzz compared to Skype on PC.
1) Nimbuzz doesn't support video calls.
2) The quality of Skype via Nimbuzz is inferior to the quality of Skype via PC. It has a small delay in voice call (1-2 seconds), which you can leave with actually.
A native Skype application would be very much preferred on Android. Let's hope this comes soon (if operators do not block it).
Nimbuzz has just recently released an update (v2.0), which brings further improvements.
mado, 09 Aug 2010what's better n8 or htc desire in all qualites plz replay fastWhen you compare Desire with Nokia N8, you should consider two things:
1) Timing - Desire is long available, tested and already has a large user base. N8 is yet to come.
2) The UI - Desire is using the very intuitive and fluid Android 2.2 with HTC Sense. N8 is going to use Symbian^3, which is basically the same old and crappy S60V5.
The choice is not hard in this case: Desire is far superior and more pleasant to use.
umm, 10 Aug 2010hey again,, err ok couple things... btw never really had internet on a phone before so this is... moreThere are a few GPS navigation programs that can be used nicely with Desire (besides the obvious free Google Maps).
I've used Sygic and it works fine. Maps auto-scroll, you get lane assistance, signpost info on display, radar warnings that you can import yourself, borderless route planning. The maps are pretty recent as well (2010).
In addition, you can get Copilot, Navigon, nDrive, iGO, and bunch of others.
I can't wait to get this phone. Vodacom cunts are out of stock till 20th August. My fingers are itching.
I test iphone4 and HTC desire just beside each other in apple store and I surely say, desire is far above iphone4.
check this thread as it is talking about the expected firmware update for this phone (android 2.2, video recording update,...). Guess I am ready to buy this one now :D
