GSM Judge, 08 Jul 2008Just Bought The Phone Yesterday.. Good Things: 1)Great cover 2)Light Weight 3)Looks Fu... moreTry the HTC Pro .. !! .. That's Much Better Than This Phone, Just A Bit More Chunkier Than This Phone ..
Just Bought The Phone Yesterday..
3)Looks Futuristic ;p
4)Anybody who sees it goes WOW!
1) HTC worked so hard to satisfy us, a little too hard. The Phone has so many things its hard to manage through them.
2)Sending SMS Messages are like MSN messenger. Its like..
Me(12:00 AM): How are you?
John:(01:00 PM): Im Good.
3) VERY SLOW sometimes! like when i say sometimes i mean once in every 30 minutes
4) The sound is RUBBISSHH!!! very low and disgusting quality!!!!
5)Since sound sucks, there is no use to listen to music unless you stick the phone to ur ear or use headphones.
6)Saving a contacts name takes tooo long! there is just so much to manage through!!
Why do u wanna know all this info??
CONCLUSION: Dont buy the phone unless youre an unorganized businessman..this phone isnt for fun even though it looks fun! its just a great organizer!
According to my service provider, there is no official ROM update for Diamond from HTC yet!
Hi every one
Does this phone vibrate with rining when a call comes in?
What about sms?
Does it make a vibrate when receiving a message?
Very smart looking phone with great features. However, the battery life is poor & you need to recharge it 2-3 times a day if you are a business user.
No physical keyboard so the cost is on the higher side right now. But tremendous design & looks really elegant.
SPOON, 08 Jul 2008how does the status in the earpiece illuminates It won't illuminate!
Cuz that's not LED. That's light sensor.
How much space will be occupied by GPS maps? It has only 4 GB internal storage ?

I paid $700USD for Diamond already and that is a lot... but if you can afford X1 or Pro...
n7tran, 07 Jul 2008anyone in North America having problems with the Diamond as it is triband and has no 850 bandw... moreIf you look back in blog history, I have posted 2 rather long personal review of this phone a while back. I'm using T-mobile Network in California and it works fine. Edge works fine, but don't expect 3G connection. I have the unlimited internet plan with T-mobile in order to use Edge.
sam, 07 Jul 2008Does anyone know if you can sms with the hand writing recognition?Yes you can. Stylus works for english recognition.
I've also installed chinese language cab files and can read/write chinese (using stylus) or use pinyin keyboard for input into SMS/web/email. My Diamond has a WWE ROM.
n7tran, 07 Jul 2008anyone in North America having problems with the Diamond as it is triband and has no 850 bandw... moreI am currently using my Diamond on Robber's Mobility (Roger's Mobility) in Canada in Vancouver.
Currently no problems, but I've only used it in the city and surrounding suburbs. No 3G of course, but who could afford Robber's rates unless you are corporate.
The 1900MHZ is fine for city use, but if you're rural or underground/indoors with no cell tower nearby, you'll need 850 since they have the longer wavelengths (ie wait of the North America version, but this phone will be "obsolete" by then ;).
not talked very long... battery empty in less than 12 hours. is it normal? does anybody experience this?

I was on a freight & happened to talk to the gentleman who sat right next to me who happen to use this HTC TOUCH DIAMOND. He was so pissed with his phone because it always react so slowly especially with the "Touch Flo"! Told me to forget about buying this phone even I can have it at half price...he said he's going to replace his Touch Diamond with the new SE Xperia.
Can the A-GPS on Diamond work on a standalone basis? This is particular important when going to the mountains for example, where you can face signal problems.
