agk, 11 Jun 2010im so satisfied with this.. but there is one BIG BIG problem.. freakin small internal memory..... morebtw.. i paid much for this fone.. $600++..
but i got pissed of coz of this internal issue.
and i think this is a "simple" thing to understand by htc people that users will install many apps in their HIGH END FONE. right?? so, why the heck they put that kind of amount in internal memery?? hufff... really do not undertand..
i can upgrade to froyo anyway.. but i paid much and i got this kind of "stupid" issue and need to wait to be upgraded to froyo?? why??? cant understand..
im so satisfied with this.. but there is one BIG BIG problem.. freakin small internal memory.. it is not enough to store apps..
what the heck is htc thinking?? they know android cant save apps in external memory, then they make only REALLY SMALL internal memory??? really not logical..
i dont even have 200 mb to save apps, coz its taken for other things that i dont even know.. maybe os..
need to wait for froyoo..
and i just wondering, if we save the apps in SD card, wudnt it be slow?? why dont they just make 4/8/16/... gb internal??? come on..
I own this mobile for about 2 weeks now and I can say I am satisfied, best mobile I have ever had. It is very fast touch functions are great, apps downloads are endless, only negative is about internal memory that getting filled upp really fast with all downloadable programs and games installation files goes on this internal memory not on external micro sd card , which I hope will be fixed with new froyo android 2.2 update.
I run emulators for nintendo, snes, gameboy, sega genesis, all run smooth.

DRG, 09 Jun 2010I have been using HTC phones for quiet some time. I had to use these as these are given to me.... moreLOL! if you dial a number and drop the call, it will apear at the top of the dialer list. instead of pressing redial you just press the number? seems logical...
HTC Desire vs. iPhone 3G S video review
dme100, 04 Jun 2010Could someone tell me if this phone is on par with or better than a Blackberry regarding email... morePlease beware. I was sold this as a mobile business smartphone to match the Blackberry including with push email. It accepts incoming mail with no problem. But it will not send outgoing mail from my business email address via my ISP which is Clara - one of the major UK business ISPs. Worse still it appears to send the email but it doesn't and you only find this if you check the sent mail folders. HTC blame clara for this. Clara say that Iphones and other smart phones have no problem with their system. )2 now tell me that there are other ISPs that have the same problem. This is a major flaw in what is supposed to be a major competitor to Blackberry. I was told the only solution was to send outgoing emails as though they came from an 02 email address - crazy - it will confuse customers - and replies will not reach me as I have no 02 email account. All in all a disaster

mobi pro, 09 Jun 2010fantastic phone kicks the iphone 3gs behind :) have had no issue with battery ! how much battery stand ?
Has anyone noticed that one version of the contacts has the ability to customise the field names and an earlier version not. The reason I am asking this is my wife has the HTC Desire with build no 1.19.161 etc and can edit the fields in the contacts and a colleague at work has the same phone but build version 1.15 etc.and cannot do so with his phone.
I have tried and owned so many different types of phone. and this one is the best of them all
fantastic phone kicks the iphone 3gs behind :) have had no issue with battery !
the phone is really good in touch sence and the application of android is cool. the problem with this phone is the battery . the battery drains very fast even with out using much and the voice on the phone is not as good as the price they charge the call voice sounds like a cheap phone.
Rocky, 09 Jun 2010hi people, Does office or document viewer or pdf work on this??? Thank uyes the desire can open word and excel documents as well as pdf files. it also gives you the ability to expand and zoom into what you are reading. a truly fantastic phone.
this is awesome phone!! great overall but the only problem is battery life.
I have been using HTC phones for quiet some time. I had to use these as these are given to me.
When you buy please check if the regular phone features that you normally use like redial a number, redial a number after modifying it in case if you have wrongly typed. Include the / copy paste the phone number from call log to any of your messages/notes..
It is very killing. I would expect these phones should give me the phone features flawlessly and then tom-tom about their high fundu capabilities.
The manual and language is worst among all.
IMHO. These has to be good phones with enormous amount of capabilities. No body talks about the common features that we would expect in a phone. For more advanced features/functionality we always have a note/laptop..
I feel Nokia, Sony and of all apple scores on usability and also features. But for a price.
Any body tested motorola milestone/droid for most commonly used features. ? I would like to hear.
