'm currently a Nokia N8 user but I almost ended up getting a HTC Desire. I'm glad I didn't now as my friend who has one tells me that when he is connected to his WiFi network he can't send a MMS.
Also I found this on the Virgin Mobile Forums.
" HTC Desire
95% of our customers should now be on the 2.2 update, we're working with HTC on upgrade path for the rest currently.
We've also recieved reports of the following issues from HTC Desire users on 2.2:
Email randomly deleting
Email service has stopped working
Phones rebooting randomly
Phone screen stops responding
However we've found that a simple factory reset will cure these problems 90% of the time. Please remember to back up all your data before a factory reset as this will restore the phone to when you first recieved it deleting any downloaded applications, text, photos etc "
What a sad state of affairs when a firmware update causes more problems than it solves.
I've also noticed a fair amount of lag on my friends Desire so it's not the mighty phone most people make it out to be.
I'd welcome any feedback on the above comments as long as it's not flame-baiting and is sensible.

What wireless service dose your phone provider give, will end up deciding what you have to get between those 2.
If you are a GSM sim user you should decide between the Desire HD and HD7 or even HD2
hello i want to helb me.. i want to buy new phone and i don't now which HTC is the best? HTC HD7 or HTC EVO 4G ..???? pls tell me thanks a lot..
Ron , 30 Dec 2010Can you read! does the desire have HTMI output? How can you say any HTC UK phone can match up ... moreOk lets do the math just for you
How thick 11.8mm VS 13mm = Desire HD wins
How wide 68 VS 66 = EVO4 wins
Weight 164g VS 170g = Desire HD wins
Display LCD 16M VS TFT 65 K = Desire HD wins
Audio Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement VS --- = Desire HD wins.
RAM 760mb VS 512mb = Desire HD wins
ROM 1.5 gb VS 1.0gb = Desire HD wins
Wlan b/g/n VS b/g = Desir HD wins
DLNA vs WiMAX = draw
Seconday CAM NO VS 1.3MP = EVO 4 wins
HDMI out NO VS YES = evo wins
Flash 10.1 yes vs NO = Desire HD wins
Stand by time 420h or 490h VS 146h = Desire HD wins
Talk time 5.5h or 5.25h VS 5.2h = Desire HD wins.
Desire HD wins 10
EVO 4G wins 3
Now tell me which is better?
What ever your answer is it dose not change the fact that this is a WP7 forum.
And we all know according to Microsoft new rules, every one going to get the same phone.
Go complain about HTC Android phones in a Android Forum.

As i said the best HTC handsets are only issued in US format not UK GSM!As a consumer spending my hard earned money, should i not have the right of choice from the whole range? if i wanted to be insulted i would have bought an iphone 4. HTC is a good company but what they are offering the UK is a joke.

How can you say any HTC UK phone can match up to this. If your only point is that the Evo 4 (and this is not the only one) was not made with the UK in mind or any of the high end HTC which all are only issued in a US format then that was my point in the first place!There is a "compare" section on this page why dont you put the Desire an the Evo 4 side by side, in fact any UK HTC an see how much is missing an which comes out on top for yourself before you open your mouth.

Using HTC Desire for months now and the only times it has given me problems is when I have managed to screw it up with custom ROMs.

HTC is all about wrestling its about the ROM. u gota have the best one to work it super smooth. HTC was a leader until Samsung Galaxy S came to picture all thanks to super amoled technology.

i had HTC TOUCH HD
upgraded to HTC HD2.
my wife and also my good friend got a HD2 as well after they saw how well mine work. but if you don't like to read and don't understand the core basics of windows and how it works, you will always have problems you don't understand.
Unreliable. Nice theoretic specification and horrible reality. If you dare to buy HTC be prepared to constant hangings and crashes. Real poltergeist in nature. Does anybody knows someone who has HTC and it works as it should?

evo4G is not a gsm phone. its CDMA that's why it dose not work most places.
the GSM match to it is the "Desire HD" which is in the UK. but why are you talking about HTC Android phones in a Windows forum?
hello i read that the DHD user can get the 1600mah battery from ebay.. so is the battery available for HD2 and is it the same size as the original battery
I am a HTC UK user but to be honest i will never buy HTC again. I am disgusted in the manner they treat UK users compared to USA user. The UK handsets are poor at best a joke at worst. Just look at the HTC Evo4 to name one, there are many more like this: HTMI output, high spec cameras e.c.t, now look what they have given us. They could at least have made these phone useable UK at least we would have the choice to import one. HTC u.s.a great, HTC U.K what a joke!

Im also from India, chennai. I've bought my HD7 last week and using the phone in its full glory. All you need to do is first change your phone region/location to UK manually and create a hotmail id with UK as your location and set that as the primary live id and login using that. Now everything including Xbox Live will work. Have a good WP7 experience. Atleast you can use this till MS launches WP7 officially in India by Jan 2011
