Brilliant Phone!! Shame Vodafone got there hands on it and ruined it with thier pointless 360 that nobody wants or uses. Music Shop which is also pointless as there are apps that you can get music for free from and increased the phones quick startup time as you have to wait for the vodafone logo to disapear.
I regret buying this phone because of locked boot loader. Can't flash custom roms. Battery life is no good, no gtalk and skype video calls. Don't know when HTC is gonna release the update for video calls. Build quality is good as compared to SGS2 but HTC is losing ground to samsung.

In this I think you are BOTH right after looking at the "evidence". 2.3.4 is GTALK.
This is both a hardware and software issue as I see it. 2.3.4 is needed for Android to use but the hardware ie 2n camara is already there.
My phone is 3G capable and unlocked if now have the settings I can make a 3g call on the "3" network

"You can do video call on 3G using Desire S, bub.
Just request for "operator settings" for MMS and video calls from your local carrier/telecom. You cannot do video call over 3G UNLESS your phone is configured FIRST by the carrier to make this type of service.
In some telecoms, the configuration is automatic, and will be done when you insert the sim. However, in most carriers, you have to call the customer service and let them send you the settings for video call.
Hope this helps."
HTC DESIRE IS Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread)
If i read correctly this is what gh00 is saying hardware in place just need sofware.

This sounds like Iphones facetime ie WIFI therefore an app. Should in my opinion do both. 2.3.4 Gtalk GOOGLES 'Android' I WILL CHECK AND POST ASAP
Ardie, 06 Jun 2011I have this phone, but can it video call ??Hi I would like to buy this HTC Sensation phone, can you let me know the price in USD...
I have HTC Sensation. There are some issues with reception it's a bit weaker than my old nokia e51. But you can manage.
and no you can't do vido calls because it has Android 2.3.3. GTalk with vodeo calls is available from 2.3.4. So you have front facing camera with great 'Mirror' app. :D
Hi foks is there an option on this phone to change the qwerty key pad to a normal key pad?
I wish it was thinner, lighter and had more battery time.... (and a super amoled plus display)
Ardie, 06 Jun 2011I have this phone, but can it video call ??Yes, it can do Video calls, it has a Secondary camera.

Joe53, 03 Jun 2011I was at Thailand Expo 2011 yesterday and this phone look so bad compare to Samsung Galaxy S 2... moreThat is why I wait for IMPARTIAL reviews!
There is not sniff at this phone on display & I hate going into phone shops, you know ask a question and the surprised look after answering that you did not buy?
So I do read both this & the SGS2 comments daily. Joe53 wrote 27/05 in SGS2
"Great I got mine yesterday in Thailand and it is working great and love it. Works smooth and it looks more advance than my iPhone 4. Feels great in hand and download time very fast as my iPhone or old Samsung Galaxy S I use to owen.
I owen Like I said my iPhone and Since could not find the Galaxy S2 I did buy LG 2X few weeks ago I do also owen my BB 9780. I would rate Galaxy first before my iPhone 4. Compare the LCD screen between the two device no comparable. Galaxy S2 by far better and sharper. It is 4.3 inch display which i was worry about but holding it no feel that wide and big. But i would rather phone be little heavier but stronger package than Galaxy S2. The iPhone 4 and LG 2X packaging much better, even though Galaxy S2 feels great. "
We get it you like phones, just have just bought 2 dual core, now still have the time to bash third?
Whatever the second paragraph means only makes sense to you, I can't see the leap or connection
Support the phone you buy in that forum!
not sure if anyone knows, tht HTC have nothing at all to do with windows.. they are 2 completely different companies.. so for example.. htc dont know much about stuff when it comes to windows, and windows dont know anything when it comes to HTC handsets.
how weird is that.. but totally 10000% true
