Also, is anyone having problems with the speaker cutting out when using the audio/video?

I have a question. Would you please answer:
Is the new ROM much better than the old one? Or they don't have much difference?

I have loaded a new ROM version(1.37.401.3 WWE) yesterday and everything works little bit faster than before, I thing they have optimised how it uses memory. There was none of problems to downloaded new version of ROM, so I am happy again.

I've had this phone for approx 2 weeks now. Paid $700 Cdn from local internet vendor. Using Rogers Canada. No 3G of course, I could never afford Roger'$ rate$! Turned off GPRS and Edge but wifi works great whenever available. Will definitely use 3G when I'm in Asia/Europe. Overall, the phone is very good. The best is the shape and weight. It just feels so good in your hand and pocket. Only need one hand to turn on/off, answer calls, navigate and type. If you have fat fingers don't bother with any touch phone unless you like to use stylus 24/7. I currently use both touch/stylus 70%/30% as there are some features where it's a lot faster to use the stylus. Have been installing the different ROMs from xda developers and applying tweaks so TouchFlo speed has not been a big issue (don't get this phone _yet_ if you're not comfortable updating the ROM and editing the Windows registry). I do need to soft reset maybe once or twice a day but it's very easy to do and doesn't take long. No problem with battery as I have computer at work and home and just plug it into the USB, can go two days w/o charging when using phone/internet/ camera/games. Opera browser is very good and fast, Youtube app is good too. No figure print issues if you put phone in your pocket. Use the screen protector, helps the TouchFlo sensitivity a lot.
1)Biggest negative is crappy speaker. Put call or music on speaker and the sound from top speaker is very bad. Headphone use is excellent though but it is miniUSB.
2)Device gets really hot when charging and using the phone at the same time. Would not recommend doing both at same time.
3)Memory leak. After using camera, browser, or Youtube app for a long time, best to do soft reset. I've read some people turn off TouchFlo and say phone is super fast without it, but so far I like TouchFlo too much to turn it off.
Definitely recommend buying it as a fashion phone, but wait for Diamond Pro if you are looking for PDA/smartphone.(Pro is too thick in my opinion though, Diamond's size is just excellent!).
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I personally think that the Omnia is better. The only drawback to the omnia is the low resolution screen ( well for a 3.2 inch screen) when compared to the Diamond. Other than that the camera is better, it has tv out, and supports divx and xvid videos out of the box!

As the gsmarena rated, the speaker volume isn't so bad
Even the new ROM can fix the lag of this phone; the quiet speaker volume & the short battery is still a big drawback!
Without a doubt, the HTC Touch Diamond is a very attractive phone .. indeed beautiful. I live here in Taipei, and last week when my brother from the U.S. was visiting me, we examined, compared, and tried dozens & dozens of phones in several stores. We both agreed that the HTC Touch Diamond was the nicest phone we had seen. The store owner was kind enough to insert his own SIM card, switch the phone's language to English, and let us try the phone. The first thing we noticed is that the touch features did seem a bit slow, but not unbearably slow. A few minutes later, after familiarizing ourselves with the phone's functions and features, it seemed a lot better and a lot easier to use. The slight time-lag delay with the touch features was still there, but not really unacceptable since both of us didn't expect top-end, laptop-computer performance. We didn't get a chance to try the GPS, but that was one of the features my brother wanted to replace his Motorola. And I too figured the GPS feature might be a good excuse to upgrade from my Nokia N73. But upon re-examination, my brother decided the price of over $700 U.S. dollars was too expensive for the phone. And while I was very tempted to buy it, I too quickly realized that aside from its GPS, attractiveness, and ultra-slim & light-weight features, it couldn't do much more than my Nokia N73. And certainly not at that price! The N73 may be a bit on the heavy & bulky side compared to the Touch Diamond, but its stereo speakers are clearly superior. Cameras on both phones are 3.2 megapixel. And I prefer a removable memory card such as the N73 has. But if HTC lowers its price, or I wait long enough until prices come down, the Touch Diamond could be my next phone. Right now though I can easily live with my N73, especially with spare batteries costing just $10 dollars here.
