can someone help me to increase the sound of htc desire s ?
the sound is very low
Does anyone know about any good 4 inch smartphone the incredible s is out of mu budget. optimus black, desire s, xperia neo or other suggestions
The battery of the Desire S is great on standby i have to agree. But when i pick it up and use it consistently (ex. Internet, Video streaming, Messenger chatting) the battery only stands under 2 hours. Is this normal guys? Thanks for the feedback!
Just upgraded from a Blackberry to the HTC Desire S, and first impressions are what a phone. It's superb. Excellent camera, quick on the internet, and HTC Friendstream is brilliant.

hi to all,I am a P1i user for about 3 years, Now i have decided to use an android phone and i bought this DESIRE S, Ive been using it for about a month, and base on my experience, its a great phone,i will not go into all details coz this is not an in-depth review,i just want to say something to all the readers here in GSMARENA.COM, hope that this wud help people who wants /thinks of buying the phone.
1. So far There is no video call for this phone which is so disappointing because they indicated it to their review here at this link http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_s-review-590.php
if someone knows how to do it please advise,Ur comment will be very much appreciated. Its one of the reason why i decided to buy this phone because I frequently used it. some pipol here said that i will be available upon the release of an update. hope this will be address soon.
2. about the death grip,so far,i didn't experience any loss of wifi signal due to landscape grip. sometimes the signal goes down to 2 bars but it didn't happen to me that the signal was loss.
3. Bluetooth connection, im listening to music using my nokia BH-503 headset, it connects so fast but the issue is that while you are walking and having the desire s in your pocket,the music sometimes skip/jump or shud i say (have u tried listening to a pirated cd?it jumps!i think for about a split second, its just like that) its a bit annoying.
4. Battery Life; its amazing, for a light / regular calls and texting,listening to music on my way to work and going home for about a couple of hours, i can use it for almost 2 days, 1day and 18hours an average depends on how many calls i received.
when im using it into gaming + my normal usage it last for about a day,THIS ISSUE DEPENDS ON HOW U USE UR PHONE,for me battery life is good.
Oveall, the phone is good AND it fits my lifestyle.
My decision of buying a NEW phone came from the answer to my questions...
1. DO U LIKE AND U CAN AFFORD THAT WILL FIT TO MY NEEDS/ LIFESTYLE..
IT WILL BE A LONG CONVERSATION TO DEVATE WHICH PHONE IS GOOD AND WHICH IS NOT..
people, i really want this phone. the specs that really suits my preferences. but i heard a lot of problem on it. please enlighten me about the issues ill post.
-is there really a dead grip over wifi on this?
(how bad is the signal loss)
-hows the battery life on normal and heavy usage?
(how long will be the usage over a day or more)
-does the paint around the frame really fades or chip?
(how to prevent it if its true)
-lastly, tell me more issues i will encounter from this device if still any. i really appreciate any reply...

The replacement does the same. Take the battery out and return it and reboot. Do the same with the sim card. It will be ok for a while then start again. Ive had hell with this phone doin that
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2011someone help me decide between desire s and xperia neothe desire s is alot better then the neo
srikanth, 05 Aug 2011htc desire s or htc incredible s which one is the best....you r wrong.
If you want to choose between Neo and Desire S it will still be u to you if camera is your thing neo is better if solid build and nice UI go fro HTC..
Desire S uses gorilla Glass, and most of the brand new HTC phone's that is coming out uses gorilla glass.
here is the list of all HTC that uses gorilla glass:
Desire S is actually under the list or actually one of the phone that can use video call under skype..
Alarm: some of you wonders if the phone is off it wont alarm, well its an android phone unlike nokia.. android phone does not behave that way it's normal it wont alarm if the phone is off because it kill all processes of the phone and alarm wont run if the phone is off..
