Had mine a couple of days now and love the phone, only few minor points which actually relate to the Desire...
*battery life (really is bad compared to my old N79)
*screen is set very low in chassis - from an angle this can make you press the wrong thing - unlike the iphone which has the screen very close to the top.
*app quality - I'm sure once google allow the SD for storage this will improve.
*requiring an app to end applications
All in all comparing with the iphone and factor in the price - I'm totally happy with this phone... well for 18 months at least :)
btw I was pleasently surprised just how small the phone actually is, the buttons are tiny! Also, found the optical pad handy for editing text
VERY Nasty shots from a 5mp Camera from a top HTC phone ... Hoped better from this phone.
One more question on the DivX:
does it work even with a downloadable player. I ask, beacause it always says on the Desire that it does not support DivX. I am not a technician, but in my opinion, if it does not support, it does not work!
Saurav, 18 Apr 2010Do anyone know when the update for DivX and 720P videos will come? Thanks.yxflash player does divx, get it from the market.
pH1, 18 Apr 2010that might be a software problem (maybe even with the app itself) and perhaps it wont exist on... moreI'm agree with you about zoom but honestly I would prefer to be sure about all this, I was almost buying the phone on expansys when I saw this, I tried to find more and unfourtunatly I found, look:
This is about desire and is related to typing messages too: http://www.vidoemo.com/yvideo.php?i=RlF4LU5ncWuRpMTNYQ2s&htc-desire-nexus-screen-problem
This is related to the screen quality: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/03/iphones-lcd-screen-beats-nexus-ones-oled-display/
Until now I do not find any official information telling "this is only a software issue that will be fixed soon"... :(
I hope it becomes solved as soon as possible... :(
Everyones can you please tell me where is the file manager? because i saved some email now i can't find them. thanks

Joearny, 18 Apr 2010Screen Problem!
Hi guys, once it has basically the same hardware as Nexus One someone knows... morethat might be a software problem (maybe even with the app itself) and perhaps it wont exist on the htc desire or maybe its just that particular nexus 1 unit that has the problem. but that shudnt matter for zooming with multitouch (basically the main use of multitouch on phones).
the app showed that even tho the fingers were not on the dots, as the fingers moved closer, the dots also moved closer. for zooming with multitouch, it only needs the distance between two points and how its changing, not necessarily the actual position.
if u plan on using multitouch for gaming tho, and that problem exists on the game app, u might hv difficulty playing the game. an instance wud be wen u hv 2 on-screen joysticks, one for moving around, the other for shooting in a direction (or something like that). i cant think of many games that do this and some of the ones i can think about, also allow u to move around with the accelerometer so u only need 1 finger on the screen at any 1 time.

Hi guys, once it has basically the same hardware as Nexus One someone knows if this phone has the same screen issue as Nexus One?? I'm afraid to buy this phone now... :(

Anonymous, 17 Apr 2010Snake there is no other way the only way is store all app into ur LIMITED memory available in ... moreTo say the truth, limited memory to store apps is not a problem for me, as a new phone with so many ups and a few downs is definitely acceptable, none of the phone out there are perfect that is how the mobile company can keep persuade all consumers to keep buy new phone and stay ahead on technology, even if you buy htc desire or se x10 now, a few months later, better phones will keep coming out again and again, what i think is choose the phone suits you and meets your needs, dun like it just leave it and no need to say good or bad, every piece of technology is an art from the inventor. Just enjoy it. Cheers.
Please help, is it possible to set the calender reminder from weekly to fortnightly on the HTC desire.
PS: I've had the Desire for 2 days now, i have to say it is the best phone i have ever had. My wife owns the Iphone 3GS, we live in a weak reception area where the iphone keeps cutting out during calls. We will be changing her iphone to the HTC desire as reception is excellent. Thanks, Gav.
