hauu, 05 Apr 2011hey guys. im planning to get a desire here. so got some questions to ask first. i've read abou... moreit's not that bad, since with the froyo update there are some apps then can be transferred to the sd card (it wasn't possible before with eclair), apps from the android market will just take a couple of mb's anyway, for your music, videos and pdf files you can put that straight to the sd card.. you'll only have problems with some games like need for speed shift which i got from pirate bay, it's not transferrable to the sd card so it took 40mb of my phone space! but then again, i have all the apps that i need and the phone handled it well
hey guys. im planning to get a desire here. so got some questions to ask first. i've read about the disadvantage of desire which says that it has "limited storage available to the user on the system partition (you are left with only 120 MB for installing apps)". is that true and how bad can that be? and also is there any problem with wifi function of the phone? thanx guys. appreciated your comments.
RAQ, 05 Apr 2011Mga Kababayan! im also a pinoy who has this amazing phone. I bought the European white version... morehello ser! i guess you automically get the globe APN once you start browsing here in the philippines thru your globe sim of course.. guess ko lang po yun ser:) globe will automatically send you settings anyway and you just need to save it.. inform us when you're already here, gud day
Quiapo Dibidi, 04 Apr 2011Ey.. my desire is also a month old.. and never had any problems with.. its still the luv of my... moremine's doing good! i browse everyday, be it wifi from my home or other wifi-ready places, i also use 3G sometimes especially if i tinker with lattitude or maps.. i play the most cpu demanding pirated games, if the game is corrupted i uninstall right away.. my battery usage is 24-36hours medium to heavy usage, heavy texting, i listen to music 2-3hours when travelling (i live far from work), i watch avi movies, take pictures and videos here and there.. my wife has a blackberry but prefers to use my phone for e-bay a lot because of the speed difference when it comes to browsing.. i guess all of us are worrisome about "rebooting" and other issues about our phones and it may eventually happen so i make sure i don't drop my phone accidentally and i won't risk rooting though it's tempting coz our friend "mike" says it's safe (might give it a try hehe there's a ROM that will allow us to store or transfer all your apps to sd card or i guess its a ROM that will increase you phone memory to 2gig or whatever).. and also we filipinos are used to nokia "hangs" blah blah blah, so i'm quite surprised my desire hasn't hanged inspite of my usage, remember its my very 1st smartphone.. my last nokia phone hanged after a week, i used it for texting, calls, games and audio.. my other nokia's hanged all the time as well.. so i'm looking forward to have my desire for the next couple of years.. unless samsung starts selling the galaxyS2 for just 10k pesos and that won't ever happen hehe
BonnY, 04 Apr 2011Hi Guys, I have upgrated to Froyo & my phone is NOT rooted. However when ever i try to ... moredownload the speedtest app first, if your getting speeds of below 500kbps regardless if its wifi or 3G you'll get "retry" prompts everytime you browse, so it's a speed issue, i think.. and when you do youtube make sure you have full bars for wifi signal even if you have a fast isp
Felix, 04 Apr 2011Hi, I m confuse between HTC Desire and Wildfire there are this features available in Wildfir... moreboth are good phones, but cater to different user categories "budget-wise".. obviously the desire has double the cpu value so browsing speeds are faster and the screen resolution of the wildfire is a downer.. if speed and screen is not an issue for you then go for the wildfire, but if you want your money's worth and willing to shell out extra bucks then go for the desire
Mga Kababayan! im also a pinoy who has this amazing phone. I bought the European white version. Am still here in Europe but goin home next month. I just want to ask about the Globe Network APN. How did u guys acquired it?

I m confuse between HTC Desire and Wildfire there are this features available in Wildfir... moreHi! I would suggest you to have a peek in my previous post about wildfire.its in page 6..
I almost bought wildfire b4..thank goodness i didnt..
Hmm.. i think desire cn do everything a wildfire cn when it cones to fxns. If your into surfing thru mobile i would suggest desire..its the best mobile browser yet... supports flash and is very good in pinch zooming..
If u have the budget(or evn if u dnt have,just save for the mean time), go for desire... u wont regret it...
Its the best... better than all the rest....

Each and every one here is entitled to his/her own Opinion about htc desire. and we will be doing well if we'll respect each other's opinion..
for no one has the right to question or ask for any explanation why my opinion is my opinion and ur opinion is ur opinion.. if anyone disagrees, its his/her problem...
No point of arguing... Let's all be at peace.. All of us here like desire...
Mike, 03 Apr 2011No never said i was an expert, I'm jut giving evidence that disproves your post. Sorry abou... morecheck every android, htc, and countless forums, there are "some" reports that pre-versions of gingerbread are still "unstable" so why risk "my" phone? as i've said, good for you mate, i'm happy for you, and again obviously you're an expert because you know more things that i do and you can back everything up, but why the angst? wana argue? hehe this is the wrong spot dude, htc users are a sensible lot, we should just get along ok? peace man since you're an htc desire guy i'll let this pass and i'm not gonna reply to you're post, you win:)
