do not buy this phone, the phone has a bug that keeps something running in the background and makes the battery last less than 10 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have had 3 phones and 2 batteries in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!
htc desire, the best phone ever
i bought mu desire and i will not change my phone again
i love this phone
Could anyone please check if their Micro USB charger goes all the way into the HTC Desire. Because mines only goes half the way in (not completely) but it holds fine and charges, but it just looks wrong.
Anyone has the same issue?
Love it but battery runs out quickly when the internet is left on and to enjoy the special fetchers of this phone you need the net for updates ect but still a wicked phone and lots of fun no regrets .
well guys, i'm not happy after 2 days of using desire......Battery run out quickly and charging takes up to 3hrs, voice in video recording is totally bad, speaker voice quality is bad, & didn't expect that big.i dont know what else
I've owned my Desire for two weeks now and whilst not a smartphone virgin I'm still learning its quirks. My previous personal phone is a SE w890 which to a point still works, a good little phone, reasonable camera easy to use and 'okay' battery life. My work phone is an o2 Serra (HTC Raphael) my third Windows mobile and and a frustrating piece of sh1t:-( I've even gone back to a stock rom to make it usable). Anyway my Desire...
It's a good phone, several android issues like multitasking - does everything stay open in the background? (tip- load a task killing app)
As you probably already know it's got a good display, not too brilliant outside but usable. Speed – well no complaints at all, it's fine. The capacitive screen works well, even the text prediction. Phone use, no complaints either. Speaker quality is good, the person on the other end sounds okay to me. Loudspeaker is a bit weak – a bit like my Garmin Sat nav... it just needs to be slightly bigger. (Bigger speaker = bigger phone?) I'm a little undecided about the camera, it's okay, flash gives a bit too much 'white' eye, but outdoors it's ok. Reliability, well after two weeks use it's not crashed, slowed down or hung on me – it just works, reception seems okay too, no better or worse than my other phones.
One slight issue for me, I've receiving my Three fair usage warning after just over one week, normal web pages are surprising large:-)
Other peoples complaints:
Battery life – I've found this okay, I've used a smart phone for several years now, so I know to charge it every night. However, someday's I've only used it for maybe 2-3 texts, a couple calls and a few Facebook or Twitter updates and I'm coming home with 70% battery left. To me that's not bad for the size of screen.
Size wise it's fine, I was a bit apprehensive about ordering such a big phone after a tiny se, but it's reasonably slim and it's fine. The screen with buttons below are perfect.
How it could be improved...well nothing major, a few android issues like app atorage – resolved in v2.2 I believe. HD Video recording - I had been looking at the Vivaz, a phone of this spec should really record in HD and at a decent frame rate too. Headphones – the supplied ones aren't brilliant, the normal Sony buds I use with my ipod make the music jump:-( Radio doesn't show rds either (is that been really picky?)
Ive had my desire for 3 days now and think the battery life is actually good as long as you turn wifi off when out and about, brightness is set at a good level, camera is good and call quality is decent too
Sani, 29 May 2010Wow! Dont tell me sonyericsson battery is going from bad to worse! 'Cos i can never 4get my ex... morelol sani u did not understood my point n i did not say charge the phone 10 hours everyday..........lol just when ur xperia x10 comes new charge it for 10 hrs and do this 3 to 4 times in one month n ur battery will improve n then u would no longer need to charge it for 10 hrs ;) n this mobile is just a beast with 1 ghz procesor n its feakingly faster than iphone 3gs n dont think Nokia n8 would stand a chance against xperia x10 as symbion OS is very slow n by the way Nokia N8 design is inspired from SE AINO n i have been using SE mobiles n there battery is pretty great n also used my friends Nokia mobiles but it was so slow n lagging software :)
