OK, I have used this phone for one week, live in Europe and touch flo 3D works quite well, fast enough and mem use without any open prog is about 51 %, so quite different number I have read here. The ROM version is 1.35. 000.0 WWE . Battery life is poor, my opinion too fcking poor else I am quite happy what I have bought.
Can anyone tell please tell me where i can get the latest ROM for the HTC diamond currently using 1.35.456.3 WWE. and has anyone else noticede how bad the battery is
I've been using it for a month or more, its a nice fone every things good except the "Battery Life" also my fone quite often goes in the mode of " Launching Touch Flo 3D " which is quite frustrating at times
any ways any body has any better solution in hand for battery as if any one manufactured a battery more then 900 Mhz?
any idea where i can download the latest ROM file for the HTC diamond currently i am having version 1.35.456.3 WWE

HTC is a great device designer and ODM
They are NEW to selling direct to customers
It is better to buy HTC-made devices from mobile operators like O2, Orange, T-Mobile etc who have years of customer service experience and good feedback history to tweak good features into the OS software

I fully endorse your viewpoint, and also marvel at the patience you have shown in order to reach a reasonable experience with the device,
my gripe is that, at that level of price, and given the amount of time that HTC had to develop the product, they should have done a much better job, straight from the box,
phone manufacturers should realise that the windows mobile OS is essentially a naturally pregnant , lumbering system, it taxes resources and when you incorporate touch flos and 3 d graphics, its further going to head south ,
i waited a long time for an all encompassing device, sadly this doesnt seem to be fulfilling my need, what I have done is to order the xda orbit 2,
points like low battery life are also extremely relevant, manufacturers should realise that such devices are used primarily as laptop replacements, so general usage is at airports, during transit, shuttling between several ofices etc , etc,
battery life should have been addressed at the outset during development, if im advised to turn off, features (essential and the gizmos)to extend battery life, then its pointless,
this has been a massive error on HTCs part,
they are advised to bring in experienced , power users as beta testers and previewers,
anyway, i hope that your experience gets better as the new ROMs and patches come through,

HTC could have done better with this. You can expect form a custumor to spent long nights on internetforums finding a solution for its issues. The phone should be ready to go from out the box. With that being said I had have a different expierence with this phone. i must say that Im extremely satisfied with this purchase. I got the 1.35.456.3WWE ROM I know its not the latets ROM issued. I've done quite some reaseach to come to this choice and that helped me in using this phone. My main complaint on this phone is the battery which has been repeated several times here. In my expierence the Touch should be handled with care than its all right. i dont have 3sec lags like some do. Another tip is that the programs you open dont close by exiting them alone. you have to tap the x a the top of the screen where you will see all running programs. My second issue is the memory which seams to leak. With no programs running its up to 72%. I have this as of last monday and everday has been a treat discovering somthing new on this gadget. I was sold by the looks of it (the wow factor is great outhere) and the specs which in my view where better than the Iphone. In the end it was between the TD and the Samsung omnia which has a better camera and the same specs but is bigger and looks kinda doll. So far i did only one tweak which you csan find on the XDA forum to improve the touch flo. Exile its to bad the phone didnt meet ur expectation after six hours. But im sure if HTC updates the rom (possibly along with the touch pro) you should give it another try. I any one has questions just ask.
Im touched by the Touch Diamond!
what really bothers me, is that inspite of all the complaints and constructive suggestions, there is not a single response from anyone at HTC or any of its representataive companies,
really surprising, and highly unprofessional,

I bought mine on 14 Jun. Here's my experience...
1) Very beautiful & slim gadget
2) The Touch-Flo is not that responsive, has a 1 sec lag
3) Some functions like the weather didn't quite work despite doing a hard reset as suggested by their CS hotline
4) The phone hang like 2x/day
5) The battery life is not long; nothing like what was advertised. It last me just 8hrs only with 1 4min call, 6 smses, 2 short internet browsing. It got better the next day but battery life's about 10~12hrs
6) The CS don't seemed to respond any email enquiry
7) For those who are not used to touch-screen gadgets, stay away from this. It's too inconvenient especially if you need to send a quick sms while waiting at the traffic-light before driving off
8) I realised that & decided to sell it off 4 days later!
The phone looks great but it´s no quad band like other models or brands as Eten, MWG, O2, etc. In my country works only on Edge band and fails to use 3G. The model was made for Europe or Asia but not for USA or South America. Very dissapointed.
i just read on some random site that htc is shipping newer versions of the diamond to europe this past week, probably with the ROM updated, and initial reports are that the lag problems have been seen to.. whether that's true or not, i'll let people "in the know" decide

of its slow or even dead motion.
I try to change for a Diamond, but,
after knowing your comments, I would like to
give up both.
Does anyone know for sure whether the diamond supports HSUPA as well? Specs from when they were first announced say it does support the faster upload but the HTC official website has no mention of it, just saying it supports HSDPA up to 7.2Mbps download speed?? Can anyone clarify please?
Passerby, 26 Jun 2008Exile, Have They Finished Producing The "1st Gen" HTC Diamonds And When It Goes On Sale In The... morePasserby,
I am not entirely convinced whether they have finished producing , distributing and thereby selling the first generation of diamonds, usually, for high end phones, such as this, they would have produced atleast 250,000 units to ship at release.
So my sincere suggestion is that either you connect directly to HTC in Taiwan, (please be warned, they are slow and almost zero in their ability to respond) or find out from the better carriers, like O2 (uk), Tmobile and Orange , to ascertain whether the new ROMs are arriving as yet,
also, you should, try for the XDA orbit 2 (touch cruise) its a very good machine, well sorted out, specially the orbit 2,
i travel to UAE a lot and sadly, teh level of customer care and product knowledge that the HTC appointed reps have in that region , is abysmal, so they will agree blankly, to whatever you are asking them, in such places, it is best to ask them a direct question "is this the version with the updated ROM?"
8 times out of 10 , you will still receive a non committal reply,
I'm not sure what everyone is on about with the belief that there is a new ROM or an upgrade in software. Yes, I bought one of the early versions which might explain why mine was very sluggish/slow. But I just tried out a few other peoples, including someone that just bought theirs yesterday (from a different country I might add) and its all the same. So whether its HTC hype or people justifying their purchases I doubt there are actually changes. At the end of the day, we will all probably decide for ourselves what we want to belief and those of us that want this phone (like I did) will buy one anyway. I'm just saying, it was really miserably slow. I change my phones pretty much every month so I know a slow WM6.1 device when I see it. In fact, I found this slower than the HTC Touch Cruise I had which had a slower processor. Is it the new Touch Flo 3D? Maybe its the new Windows. Whatever it is, there is a problem here. I'm hoping future ones, including those from HTC improve a lot.
