I own this phone for about 5 years now. Never had any hardware problem with it, except that I have changed the battery recently. I did reset the phone to factory settings two times because of software problems. My only problem with it now is that the software is outdated and many applications are not longer available. The internal storage space is very limited as well compared to newer phones.
worst company and its service ever seen .i have been waiting for the response about availability of charging circuit board of desire 700 s which i need to replace as charging socket is lose. i had ben several times to service centre and they had told me to wait for 10 days its been more than two months now and also htc s spare parts are costly than other companies
I have purchase HTC Desire 220 on dated 0906.2014. It was worst experience of my life to purchase this company. The handset has repaired so many times. right now my phone is now stopped. The htc repair team has told me to repair cost would be Rs.4000/- . I am suggest to all the customer dont purchase this company's mobile phone.
Love this phone! :D

My dad bought this phone at the time when it was released (5 years ago),brings back memories actually!!!
My hts phone fell down while catching bus screen became pieces how to replace it. Purchased in november 2014.warranty period is there to replace it. Htc 620 G fone.i
Personally, I like the desire. Whether or not the loud speaker is crap, or not good enough. I rarely use it. Texting, web browsing and camera are all about I use. This is actually my first HTC and I like it better than my LG Optimus L70. Considering it's out of date. What bothers me is that there might not be a screen shot camera. Either that, or I haven't figured out how to use such.
Oooooh what a wonderful phone.good specs and working nicely although battery life is poor.love it.

Why are People complaining about their brand new HTC Desire XXX here?
This is OBVIOUSLY the page about the ORIGINAL HTC Desire from 2010!
Go spam the correct pages, sheeple!
I got the original HTC Desire the moment it was available in Germany in summer 2010. Still have it and still use it!
Of course, Andriod 2.2 Froyo became a bit long in the tooth in 2013 and nearly unusable in 2014, so i decided to make the hop to a 3rd party ROM early 2015. Never looked back! LiquidSmooth-ROM with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) gave my Desire a new life! The way was paved with hurdles (S-OFF, root, recovery, etc.) but now the 5yr old phone is more usable than some of its newer brethen (like Samsung Ace and other cheap Andriod phones plagued with Android 2). I saw a Lollipop custom ROM on the way too :-)
TL;DR: The only first gen Smartphone still worth using today, because it can run Android 4.4.4 KitKat! Money invested wisely.

I'm very irritated with my HTC Desire. I looked online about how to save my storage to the SD Card instead of my phone. And now there is a ton of storage on my phone and it won't save SD Card no matter how many times I set it to save to the SD Card. Secondly, my HTC Desire data won't work because I've connected it to the WiFi. I have a ton of data left and no way to use it when I do need it. For example on road trips my Google Maps is unavailable because of the data issue. I'm so fed up with HTC and I will never be buying another one again.
I'm very dissatisfied with the HTC service provided to me.
I bought the HTC Desire 826 on Jun 14 2015. On Jun 25th 2015, the entire touch sensor of the phone konked off. I went to the service centre and was told that the product will be replaced immediately BUT I have to go to the city of purchase- which is Bangalore and I live in Mumbai.
The service expects me to spend another bomb on travelling to Bangalore from where I bought the phone 10 days ago when any other phone company- Samsung included provides All India Service where I will get a product replacement anywhere in India.
What sort of a 25k phone konks off in ten days? And why put me through the trauma of buying a spare phone? I now have no phone for atleast 15 days while the Mumbai service centre tries to replace the touch sensor of my phone! (that too, they do not guarantee it'll be done in 15 days)
Terrible experience with an HTC product! Please think of the customer's plight and provide All India replacement and service.
I bought the Htc Desire 5 years ago. Used mainly as a phone, some email and web browsing. It is sadly dying and I can only hope my next mobile is as reliable.
After sales service of htc is zero.
Please keep this in mind before buying htc
Hi, I purchased HTC 626g+ last week. Two issues I am facing.
1. HTC claimed that there is magnet sensor. But no sensor available.I checked with CPU z software.
2. no ringtone facility for outlook inbox email folders. If any new mail . No notification ring. But for inbox mail it Toussaint there.
I just want to say that after 5 years, the htc desire that I've bought is still smooth and fine as if I've just bought it yesterday. I bought an extended battery with casing and now it can lasts up to a day standby with 4 hours of sot at max brightness. I use it for watching series( yes i know the screen is rather small), my alarm clock, my backup phone for other line and also to browse fb after I've off my main phone to charge it for the night.
Dropped it countless times and even tho it has some tiny dents and is roughened up, it still looks sexy. ^_^
