i found a good article on the web concerning the battery life :
I think i'm going to buy mine thursday and selling my omnia HD \o/
well my omnia hd stands max 3 days with his battery, and this is also something i search with the desire, ok i dont use so much wifi and internet but sometimes i do and that wil reduce the time ... OK
But 1 day with turning ALL OFF is extremely poor imo :'(
wolfhound, 27 Apr 2010Just to answer a few short questions.
1,I have a Desire and think it's fantastic and have no ... more@ Wolfhound or anybody else who can sincerly answer...
I am seriously looking for a new phone right now and HTC desire seems to be it EXCEPT for:
U say the battery can go the day if remmeber to switch off apps etc, ok but can it go a day and a half!? Sometimes i might not come back home but still need a phone!!
This is important to me for my commutes and whilst in the bath, so a decent MP3 player and Good loadspeaker (4 my bath's!) are important to me...
This phone more than ticks all other boxes, can u shed light on these for me, Thanks.
Just to answer a few short questions.
1,I have a Desire and think it's fantastic and have no problem lasting a day with the battery although you do need to remember to turn applications off, use advanced task killer or something.
2,IMO Android is by far the better OS between it and Windows atm. Could change with series 7 but don't know yet.
3,I've never had a problem with the capacitive screen, be it not working properly or haveing a 'Nexus one' problem.
Hope that helps :)
yeah what about the battery ?
i really considering to buy this phone but if the battery stands 6 hours i think it will be a waste of my money ...
Does this phone have Document Viewer? If not, is it available on Android Market to download?
Regret buying n97 mini, i should afew month and get this exellent phone=D no ishit for me useless phone cant even move and manage my folder and x10 is great 2 but no muti touch that a fail. if u want good camera go get some real shit lol i do not need a 12mega pixel phone. Phone alway a phone no matter how high ur mega pixel you got u cant beat a crap digital cam =D i didnt claim this is the best of the best 8/10 for it give the 2 for improvment
does the htc desire have the same touchscreen issue as with the nexus one ???
I heard so much about the batters performance ... and all bad . just want to understand ? I used HTC HD before and if and got through the day and need to charge it anyway . calls , youtube, games, wifi etc.. ? so can you tell me the desire will be worse than HD . if yes then it is big issue for me . kindly desire owners let me know? I want to buy this mobile and really like it
Please stop comparing devices to praise your own. Readers of these pages are not children. There is not a device you can name it "perfect.
Here, let us (desire owners) share our experiences and escalate any possible inconveniences, matters as well as solutions to faced problems, suggestions on 3rd party apps, tools etc. with links.
Here I have a question; have you ever lost multitouch functionality and obliged to restart your device to gain this feature back? (it is not functioning at all, not only on intern
et browser but even on the homescreen) I dont know whether a 3rd party app underlying this, or if it is a bug in the OS.
Which OS is better between Windows Mobile & Android? I desire for an expert opinion mentioning the pros & cons of both OS. I'm confused about which one to buy between HTC Hero, HTC Legend & HTC HD Mini. Is there anyone who can help with his/her valuable opinion?
This is an outstanding phone and just after using it for the first time for about five minutes I felt that this was way better than the iPhone and other smartphones
This was the first time I had been using the Android interface previously I have used Sony Ericsson Nokia iPhone and Samsung but this one was in a league of its own and I think the same after using it for about two weeks this is an excellent phone and I recommend it to anyone .
I work for t-mobile and let me tell you the htc desire is better than the x10. I know this because t-mobile already have loads of x10's with the same old somy ericsson software problems. never mind those of you that have just got an x10. You should be able to upgrade again in 17 months or so. lol Statisticly, the desire sells more than the x10.
people are always complaining about phones because they are not perfect. But no phone is perfect, because everyone has a different taste. I think there are a couple of phones that are really good. A phone is bad when it doens't work well, i don't think so this phone will work bad. Phones are bad when the touchscreen doesn't work well, and if the phone is VERY slowly or that stuff. I don't think desire have all this. :)
And after that, if you don't like, you buy another one?
No phone is working for your whole life :)
This is most definitely the best smart phone out there. Everday is a new learning a new thrilling experience with it & it never ceases to impress.
In summary for people who have not used a smart phone or a touch screen device.please don't get booged down by comparisions & confuse yourself with the fights below. Just go get this beauty, it will take you on a joy ride. You are lucky if this is your first smart phone buy. If not no.1 by any comparision, its not number 2 either. So its up there :)
For experienced smart phone users. You cannot deny that this stands among the best. Every model has its own minor limitation including x10, iphone etc..but then if anybody can come out with 10/10..how will they sell their next product ?? think about that.
Keep it simple i say..Keep a good camera at home..Buy a nice audio for music..if you are lucky to be spending whole day on internet..buy a slick laptop & FINALLY BUY A SMART PHONE LIKE DESIRE- Cause you might not get the best of all the above, but you will still have access to all that & it wont disappoint.It will keep you very happy..especially if your like me...Always on the run....Who would want to listen to music on phone when at home.ill turn on my home theatre..& for a special occasion Ill get my cannon to shoot the best pics ;) Cheers !
hamid, 25 Apr 2010i say x10 is better
If you want an Android phone today, this is what you should be buying.
x10 is better? no.
x10 is a good phone I Agree... it looks bad only because of its fangirls who doest know where to stand..
you know what. if you really think that your phone is great and the best of all. you dont to go to other forums just to prove it.. let them decide what they want..
it seems like you are not suitable with this kind explaination. im, sure you will never understand.. poorguy...
LV, 25 Apr 2010So, no one can tell me anything about my problem. Thanks anyway.Sory bro. try to ask help from the developers forums.. i think they can surely help you with that...
I said this yesterday. let me say it again
The truth hurts but its the truth..
those who are complaining so much about this phone being having a 5mp camera and not having an 8mp. those people must really be poor... the truth is they dont have enough money to buy a real camera.. their hard earned money or donation from their parents is just enough for a camera phone. its a shame having a party with your relatives family and friends and you are just counting on your "cameraphone".. what a SHAME...
those who have more money to buy a smartphone and a Good camera (DSLR) will never complain a smartphone having just a simple camera.. 3mp is just enough (iphone) 5mp more than enough (desire)...
For me, 5mp camera is more than enough.. i dont use my phone as my main camera lol. for me my phone is for business, call, email, sms, and sometimes playing with applications and games, i love personalising my phone... camera? i dont usually use it. just sometimes when its needed. so whats the use a great camera in a pHone. it cant even match a true professional camera...
if you care so much about camera. dont buy a phone. your wasting your "just enough money" buy a professional camera insteed.
you got it hamid? now go back to your kingdom and praise your god "sony" just dont cry here in Desire forum
Hi, i've heard so many good reviews about this phone and my contract has been up for the past two weeks.
I was originally ygoing to get it on T-mobile but because of the very steep price increase I decided not to.
I'm looking at O2 instead and was wondering if anyone knew the release date for this phone on O2.
It was on the wesite a few days ago and it said that it was 'coming soon' in april.
Now its not on the website anymore. Any thoughts?
