I'm a Desire S user...
But I'm advicing you not to buy any Android phone from HTC with locked nand and bootloader. Reason?
You'll be stock with bugs and other issues that might not be fix by HTC.
You cannot root your phone
You can't use roms that's optimize for your device thus prolonging battlife.
Customization will be limited.
Don't let HTC "locked" you out!

Does any of you guys receive an 8gb card with the phone? In Romania are 2 different packages: one with an 8gb card (costs 498euro) and one without card (costs 410euro). Do you think there are differences between 2 packages ? becouse the price difference is too high .... any owner ?
Anonymous, 24 May 2011desire s or galaxy s is better?Desire S vs Galaxy S:
1) DS got gingerbread out of the box while GS got updated to it
some daz back. So DS got n upper hand here.
2) GS got super amoled display which is better than s-lcd of DS (but personally I would recommend not to give much thought in dis regard as s-lcd of DS is also a very good display, infact the best HTC could give at the present)
3) GS got 4 inch screen n DS got 3.7 inch. ( dis option depends on u)
4) DS got 768mb Ram compared to 512mb of GS. (the bigger ram of DS is indeed very useful if u r a heavy apps user but keep in mind 512mb is more than ok for normal users)
5) Aluminium unibody of DS is better as compared to the plastic
back cover of GS. ( here is the scoring point of DS, the body makes the phone a super piece to hold on)
6) Regarding the processor, both are almost equal but the GPU
of GS has got a little upper hand only during gaming mode.
7) One big difference is the camera flash which GS got none.
8) Camera n video quality in daylight r similar
9) Music quality of GS is better while listening using its built-in
speakers (same if headset is used)
so choose ur smartphone now... personally m using a Desire S now
I have problem with the leak under search menu (soft key). It looks like the screen not integrated solidly with body. There's space around 1-2 mm. Do you have the same problem ?

10 days now with my new HTC Desire S :)
I love it so much, and here are mu comments:
- I couldn't see any light leaks anywhere
- Battery life is bad for me, less than 24 hours ( call time about an hour/day + SMSs + installing new applications)
- Its design is very nice in the hand , but i didn't like its back .
- Android is wonderful as an operating system and its applications is available everywhere on the net.
- Camera is 5 MP , but quality is bad, it can not be compared to the wonderful quality of iPhone camera 5 MP.
- Wireless is very good, but when u put ur hand on the top of the device it'll drop from 4 to 1 or 2
Finally i am happy with it, and i recommend it.
