Had my HTC desire for a week now, and been very impressed so far. Pretty hard to fault except I would say that the screen outside does not seem that good.
Other than that its by far the best phone I've had. Like it much more than my girlfriends iPhone 3G, and not being tied to iTunes etc. Highly recommended.
[deleted post]actually the X10 is garbage... honestly. no multitouch? have you even had your hands on either device? and the X10's 'splines' are pretty to look at, but functionality is the cost.
This phone is almost perfectly complete. My only issue and the sole reason why I wont purchase it is the weak battery. For this reason I will buy the uglier Samsung Beam. For those who have this - especially heavy users, how often do you charge it? I dont want a scenario where I am carrying a spare battery. Nor do I want to be carrying a charger 24/7 or leaving it in the charger. My current phone is the Nokia E72. I charge this about once every three, four days. I need a beast of a battery new phone.

hahaha x10 is the best phone?well we understand how much happy you are with your touchscreen phone but next time put your emotions aside before saying something
Today HTC Desire is best Android Phone in Market today by far. We have to wait and see the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 how would be compare to this phone.
It look like the Samsung has few advantages over Desire but problem is Galaxy is made of cheap plastic and no flash.
[deleted post]The difference between HTC Desire and Sony is that I do not have to wait 8 months. Plus same Article say:
"Adding HD video recording via firmware upgrade is certainly surprising but a similar software update was rumored recently about the HTC Desire as well."
Anonymous, 05 May 2010worst phone is sony erricsson x10chill.... i was being sarcastic to hamid, i am not an actual fan of x10 lol....
kevin, 05 May 2010This phone sucks. i bought it yesterday and it havent a equalizer by the mp3 player. And the G... moreEqualizers add distortion to music and that would ruin the crystal clear quality produced by the DSP chip on the Desire which is quite frankly amazing. GPS works perfectly on my Desire, I get a lock in 5 seconds or less.
This Phone here is absolutely great, no doubt about it.
But, what i ask is - how and why did it take so long for HTC to even come up and compete with iPhone ? Even though the iPhone is getting old, the iPhone is stille the flagleader of touchphones. The OSX system is 100% functional with very little errors (in that case it will be switched with a new iPhone) Further more. The iPhone 4G, which we know very little about, should be the absolutely conquerer of the world due to phones. Problem is, they cant win the battle without Java :-)
Everyone who dislikes this phone due to design, functionallity or whatever - is just dumb.. end of story
Lyon, 05 May 2010lol this dude is such a joker. how old are u? 8? have you received proper education before? x1... morehello,
guys in this forum,try to explain to this 2 goofs that this isn't a SE X10 forum and they are not welcome here, except if they have some solid facts that X10 is better,they should worship their fantasy god(se),this guys just make people confuse,its not worth reading their comments...tq
This phone us without a doubt the best I have used - note I'm a bit if a phone addict therefore have been through a few over the years. The screen clarity and resolution is fantastic, its as responsive as the iPhone. One problem I've always had with touchscreens is the keyboards and being able to type accurately on them, I would place the cough cough iPhone at the top in terms of speed and ease but the Desire is a very close second.
Camera = great
Apps = great and growing everyday
Ease if use = fantastic
I have owned many smartphones (18 in fact) over the past 6 years and have much experience with them. I include the iPhone (which I hated) and a SE X1 (pretty poor). The HTC Desire is without doubt the best ever. The screen is glorious, clear and bright, feather touch response, the device is fast and responsive and looks really sleek too. I have not experienced any problems at all and any limitations are down to the operating system that will be upgraded regularly in any case.
I have as much storage as I want with SDHC cards and I can customise the screens and download thousands of free and unrestricted apps. Multi-task, Flash integration, Bluetooth... everything. The camera is way better than any HTC before too. My advice... BUY IT!
I played yesterday with an X10(i own a Desire) and its the same comparison like you play with win7(Desire) and win 3.11(X10)
Ok the Camera is much much better but the LG Viewty ones is also better ....
Go out and play boy ;)

This phone sucks. i bought it yesterday and it havent a equalizer by the mp3 player. And the GPS doesn´t work really great. And it is not so fast. And there is a GPS fix but it doesn´t work.
I had this phone for 3 weeks now
honestly, this is the best phone ever made
its fast, very very fast (best CPU available in the Market)
the home screen can be customized as you like to many Widgets, apps and so on..
Android Market has to many apps + games + books + live wallpapers ... etc
camera is very good and one of the best 5 Megapixels cameras around..
the screen size is just perfect with nice amoled color.
"Android OS + HTC Sense = unbeatable"
