Sukumar, 17 Apr 2011Hey could you please confirm the WiFi death grip issue,
have read that when held in landscape... moreYes, it loses some wifi when you hold it like that. So does Inredible S by the way, but not as much.
Anyway, it is only a problem if the wifi signal is weak, and you can always hold it in the bottom part intead of the top part in landscape mode, by simply turning the phone clockwise instead of counter-clockwise from portrait mode. Feels better to hold it like that anyway, because then you are holding the "chin" with your thumb....
brako, 16 Apr 2011hey guys! I'm having the chance to buy either SAMSUNG GALAXY S or HTC DESIRE S. What do you th... morethe galaxy s is definitely better in pretty much every way (especially gaming) other than the build quality..plus the galaxy s is kinda old now, whereas the desire s has just launched..the battery on the galaxy s is very average..dunno about the desire s.. Upto you now.. Buyin my mom the desire s tomorrow (coz dad already has the galaxy s),heard abt its reviews, pretty good..
Hey could you please confirm the WiFi death grip issue,
have read that when held in landscape, with camera covered, the wifi signal drops, also when placed on the couch ......
If the wifi issue is there, is it bearable??
That would be a deciding factor between desires and inc s for me
phone already in the indian market for rs 23k... waiting for gsmarena to launch the review of this phone.
i need to buy this phone, would really appreciate if any actual user of desire s let me know the battery life, pros and cons of this phone, i have been waiting for a long time to buy a new mobile. had almost planned to pick up samsung galaxy i9003 sl , but the battery life is bad. please help as i keep travelling and cant charge battery every 2hrs. please....
I've bought the Desire S on ebay yesterday, can't wait to use it! =D
warlord619, 16 Apr 2011Well i Really haven't read what the Main website says. And just to solve your query if at al... moreAlright. Thanks for your review and reply on my questions. Do have a great day=)
brako, 16 Apr 2011hey guys! I'm having the chance to buy either SAMSUNG GALAXY S or HTC DESIRE S. What do you th... morewell its quite obvious that you should go for HTC Desire S. The reasons being:
1. Better Battery Life (must for todays busy world)
2. Better User Interface(HTC Sence ranks above Touchwiz)
3. Screen More Responsive
4. Fits perfectly In jeans and looks good in hand.
5. Metal Back Gives it a Solid Feel.
6. Latest Android Os in Stock (Gingerbread)
The only Difference between these two phones is
1. SGS has a slightly bigger screen
2. It has a Gigantic Phone Memory (8Gig/16Gig)
3. It has Plastic Back which according to me looks cheap.
4. To me it looks like an I Phone Rip Off (LOL)
5. Has the AMOLED screen which is brilliant but the SLCD on Desire S is equally Good.
Acc to me Go for HTC Desire S. :-)

well,according to this test, the Desire S has better photo quality than the Incredible S.

And just to solve your query if at all I am mistaken then u do have an alternate of installing V Player from the market which supports divx/xvid codec files.
Video Calls can be made through 3G. I am not sure whether Wi-Fi will be able to make a video call or not.
I dont know why GSMA has still not reviewed the HDS. maybe a lot more things will be cleared once we have the review.

I'm actually having dilemma whether to purchase Incredible S or Desire S. Btw, how to make video call through this two phones?By skype or 3G?
Honestly speakerphone is awesome. It uses the big speaker on the front aswell as the one on the back. Call quality has been much better than the old desire but mainly due to size increase. I upgraded today from a desire to a desire s and they have sorted pretty much all the little niggles the first one had. A great buy.
will i am, 15 Apr 2011I'm sorry to interrupt but I found out that Incredible S couldn't play AVI and XVID video file... moreWell, one of my friend owns an Incredible S. All his *.avi extention movies play quite fluently. So i guess divX/xvid format does work. It drains out the battery quite a lot though.
Desire S works only with SIMcard or can work without it (PDA) like touch-pro?
Im upgrading from touch-pro and i need work without the SIMcard.
hi i plan to buy on eon monday
so can some one pls tell me how much will the battery life be with minimal usage of apps
and second how good is the screen?

If the WiFi network is strong then theres absolutely no problem.
Only is the signals are low or weak then the phone takes SOME time to connect. otherwise all good.. :-)
