I owned a desire for nearly a year never dropped it no apps and battery life would not last half a day just making one call to my girlfriend. I tried deleting all apps and resetting the phone and still same results. This could be annoying when I was out in the car if ever I broke down or needed it for an emergancy I would have been stuffed. I sold the phone on envirophone and got a nokia 1800 and battery life last for days. Does exactly as it says on the box a mobile phone, no camera but it works great.
When you get a smartphone it seems to be a step back in technology when coming to the battery life. Thanks for reading.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2011install App2SD so you can move some of the app to SD card it work great.I used Contact Remover Plus to merge duplicates, that saved me just enough to get over the 25mb mark
If you have your contacts synchronized with your google account, then on the thc you can delete the contacts and facebook data while updating, and then get them back afterwards (remember to make a google contacts bakcup first!)
This was an has been my fist and only phone I have had running on android... at first i thought i waisted my time with it, however i have to give a uge thumbs up for android.. This has been the first time I have been challenged to learn how the phone works the entire set up and configuration of the schemes assisted in learning the entire phone...
To this I am thankful to HTC for challenging me... after that i had no hassles with the phone or struggling to find anything i was looking for...
I like this so much that I have gone and played with the HTC flyer recently as I am looking for a tablet... and again my mind has been made up with the simplicity of how easy and simple it is to get use to how the device works... the other great reason right now is that Apple I-pad's applications are all cost as dollars and for someone who does not live in America or anywhere else where the dollar might not be as strong as it is it is easy not having to pay six - eight time the price shown for the application.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2011Very disappointed in this phone and in HTC. This phone tends to overheat and fry the antennae... moreWhat have you done to let this phone overheat, I have had mine for two and a half years with no hassle...
I did start restarting just before the last update on the android OS became available... after updating the OS the phone worked brilliantly again...
After about a month... the memory started giving problems like dropping all the data and unmounting... ths was annoying as all the apps and the camera does not work without teh SD card...
Thought that it was because of the 8GB or the 16 GB I normally used and not the 4 GB that was supplied with the phone went back to the GB and same problem...
Tried getting mounting applications and formatting the SD card using the PC this did not do anything...
After a while I started playing with the phone again and the fact that the memory card did not work was becoming a real problem....
Eventually went to Settings and SD & Phone storage where I came across the format option on the phone... Something I normally never used so I neglected to look there when the problem started furthermore I thought that I have already formatted the card "this will never work" it happened and the card was fixed. Phone has been working before and since without any further problems..

Very disappointed in this phone and in HTC. This phone tends to overheat and fry the antennae resulting in dropped calls. HTC wouldn't do anything about it when I was just 11 days out of warranty.
