But the customers who already spent almost $800 for this phone would have to spend an additional $80 for a battery that should've came with this phone in the first place. That is sad.
This is my first and last HTC phone.

Btw, I was told by my service provider that this phone heat(like your computer) up during conversation.
Don't understand why this phone is listed at a 8/10 in the price group?! ... This phone is selling for HK$5,680(approx.US$725), but any of the service provider's customer can buy it off the shelf with a 20% discount off!
If any customer(existing or new) who is willing to sign a contract for 18 months; tthen the price will only be HK$3,180((approx.US$400)-and the monthly bill is only HK$138(US$17.5). If any one is willing to join a bigger plan, the price will drop to half of the list price!
A Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte cost us HK$13,000 per unit(more nthan double the price of the HTC Diamond) & it's rated at 9/10 in the price group, why???!!!
as the user opinios keep coming in, and they are more negative than positive, i still see NO RESPONSE from HTC,
poor show indeed,

I have been waiting on this phone being launched on Vodafone for 2months and was really excited but after reading several reviews i dont think i will go near this phone,seems extremely slow using apps and major ROM issues.I really wish they had got this phone right because its got be the best looking phone on the market right now

I am waiting for new or knockoff battery too. I surf and use YouTube too much but only need to recharge once per day.
Update your software as there are definitely issues with some base ROMs.

3)Looks Fu... moreThe built-in YouTube app is pretty slick. No need to install software or hacks to see YouTube (and VGA resolution!!!)
But there are way more video file sharing flash sites out there that I want to view (not just YouTube), but will need to install hack/software to view.
This phone is not user friendly!
Very low sound.
Speaker sound very quiet & sound quality very rubbish.
Touch screen is not accurate nor sensitive.
Function difficult to use & slow.
Battery last only very short time.
This phone has got too many faults...HTC should do more experiment before putting this phone on the market!
i just got this device its too sensitive if it falls i dont know what will happend the speaker is veri veri dissapointed and no plash ? can some one answer to me if the speaker is so bad ? its sound like a bad tranzistor from 20 years ago,,,,,,,
I thought this phone was going to run on Android instead of windows mobile
Kimi, 08 Jul 2008Hi every one Does this phone vibrate with rining when a call comes in? What about sms? ... moreYou can set the phone up to ring and vibrate or ring only or vibrate only. Both in calls and text messaging.
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.
