Simon from the BL, 11 May 2010Can anyone tell me if the HTC Desire has a Scratch-resistant surface, and can i get a battery ... moreThe first few days, my Desire's battery would only last 5-8 hours. After 2 weeks and with moderate use (2 constantly updating push mail accounts, Friendstream/Facebook/Twitter/Weather updates every hour or two, some phone calls, a few sms, and surfing will easily do 24 hours. 36+ if just on stanby. I don't see any reason to knock the batter life on this phone.
Can anyone tell me if the HTC Desire has a Scratch-resistant surface, and can i get a battery which last for much longer than 6 hours

Oh, reasons why the Desire is better then the iPhone 3Gs
First, Android OS. Combined with HTC Sense, you get a much nicer experience. You can do much more with your 7 homescrens. Its not just, like on the iPhone, pages with only stupid icons.
Further, the OS is just as finger friendly and smooth.
But, the hardware. That is the big difference. Off course the iPhone is almost a year old, so it kind if makes sense. But the Desire has much better hardware: the bigger, higher resolution amoled screen. The faster processor. The better camera with flash. The RAM.
Only if there is some amazing app in the Apple appstore that you must use, and that is not on Android Market, you should go for a iPhone. Or you can said for the 4th generation. But, you can NOW pick up something that is maybe even better then the iPhone 4: The HTC Desire.
This device is amazing!
I have had it for a day and already I know this is the best phone I have ever owned. I traded it for my HD2 and put a little bit of money on the table.
I also think it is better then any current iPhone.
Why? Hardware is very high end. But, unlike the HD2, the hardware gets used! Android OS is amazing. Much better then Windows Mobile. Everything is smooth, finger friendly and modern. Applications overdose in the Market. The browser is good..
You know, I can go on and on. But overall, I say: The HTC Desire is the best thing you can get right now. IMO, much better then HD2. IMO, even a little bit better then the iPhone 3Gs.

Jay, 10 May 2010hi, anyone knows when htc gonna bring the great htc desire to singapore?14 May.
Hello, and sorry to bother asking you guys another help.
Thing is that I got robbed of my HD2, and I'm thinking either to buy a new and nice phone or go to a monastery for the rest of my life.
If I decide to buy a new mobile, I've been thinking on Desire, but got a few questions before deciding (shame there is no test-drive available). Well, here it goes:
- Does it have same Facebook integration with contacts as HD2. The integration on HD2 is so fantastic! I just love this feature on HD2.
- Since it is a Android OS, can it synch with Microsoft Exchange server for mails, contacts and calendar synch? I've tried to ask HTC itself but the answer was really confusing.
I apreciate if anyone could help.

Adam, 10 May 2010HTC desire is not the best i belive I phone is I phone and its still better than HTC dsireI Owen both phone HTC Desire and Iphone. Plus Owen Blackberry Bold 2 when I get board with touch screen.
I do love Iphone and I am Apple products lover but HTC today has edge over Iphone until see what Iphone OS 4 offering. Basicly trying to catch up with HTC Nexus that is why Apple law sue against HTC. If refer to YouTube video Steve job few years ago did mention that Google was a major factor in writing the software first generation for Iphone.
Now, you google which has been master mind behind Iphone to do their Owen Software and Lic. To many MFG. Android to HTC, Samsung, SE, LG, Acer, and Dell. So, big problem for Apple.
Any how iPhone market will grow as much as Android market this year and next year. Nokia will get a big hit in market.
Adam, 10 May 2010HTC desire is not the best i belive I phone is I phone and its still better than HTC dsireUnfortunately you're wrong, better operating system, better processor, 75% free Apps compared to around 50% on the Appstore... The way forward is HTC
Adam, 10 May 2010HTC desire is not the best i belive I phone is I phone and its still better than HTC dsirethe era of Iphone has ended and the present is for Htc Desire,if you understand,but if you are living in the past then Iphone is your champion
HTC desire is not the best i belive I phone is I phone and its still better than HTC dsire
Anonymous, 10 May 2010you say that is better to buy than nexus one ?Forget to say I have my HTC Desire now for 2 weeks after I changed from Nexus to Desire and have no Battery problem. My Nexus had no problem too.
I change from Nexus to Desire since it will give me a lot of HTC Widgets which I love same HTC incredible. No like HTC Legend since CPU is slow same Iphone. Desire a great phone except wish the setting up the Network with provider would be auto and not Manual. That been problem for me.
