(Can't find extra batteries for the Touch Diamond in the stores yet). I don't know yet if I got a good phone with a faulty battery, or if a bought a device too ahead of its time for the batteries we have today.
At the present time to me, compared to cars, it's like having a Porsche with a 2 gallons fuel tank capacity ;-)

I felt the same way with this phone on the first week. Most especially that we replaced competitive phones with this phone to begin with. I had the N95 8gb. I thought that I made the wrong decision, but after using and getting to know this phone better, I'm really liking it now, and I'm starting to feel that I din't make the wrong choice, but the right one. There's always an adjustment phase when changing phones, especially when you are replacing another good phone w/ it (like in our case). Give it a little more time. As for the battery life, I've noticed that it's improving after using it more and more. Also, it is impressive that you can get a full charge after only 30 minutes of charging it. That's the fastest I've seen on any phone.

Rafieian, 15 Jun 2008It`s a good phone I think,,, but i have a question: which one is better? HTC touch diamond or... moreTo answer your question. I own this phone and it is quite a performer. But I have never seen the i900 in action yet, but based on their specs alone, the HTC Diamond should be the better phone. Though the i900 may offer some better features like bigger internal memory and a bigger screen, but to most people, 4 gb is more than enough. I've only used less than 1gb of my 4 gb. As for the screen, i900 may brag of its 3.2 display, but does it really make use of the full screen when you view pics and videos? The Diamond utilizes its full 2.8 display when viewing pics & vids. Also, the Diamond has a significantly better screen display resolution and quality than the i900. I don't really see anything from the i900 that is significantly better than the Diamond except for the internal card memory. As for the build, the diamond uses tempered glass for its screen, & its frame is made of metal, while the i900 is mostly plastic, same with its screen, so you are likely to scratch the i900's display eventually, while the Diamond's screen will stay glossy and scratch-free as it is for as long as you don't abuse it. So again, the Diamond is significantly better built than the i900. Though I still think it's a tad overpriced. It should be sold for $650 instead of $785. But I would discourage you to buy the Diamond if a large memory is essential for you. If that's the case the Diamond is out of the question between the two phones.

It`s a good phone I think,,, but i have a question: which one is better? HTC touch diamond or Samsung i900??!
I bough this Touch Diamond phone-pda a couple of days ago, I was looking for a good phone to get rid of my SGH-D900 and since I have also an HTC TytN, which is a great device as PDA, (but too big to use it daily as phone) I thought the Touch Diamond could have been the right choice.
I WAS WRONG
This nice toy is not up to the TyTN when used as PDA and is not up to the Samsung SGH-D900 when used as phone, but the main odd about the Touch Diamond is the battery life, which is the worse I have found since my first Motorola MicroTac in 1991.
And I am not running out of battery due to extended use of GPS or Camera, I am talking about using the device as a phone, with a 10 minutes internet surfing per day and after the internet session I always disconnet the browser from the net.
Generally talking, I see that the batteries are not up to the features available on today's 3G's phones, at least the slim ones.
However if you are looking for a phone which would really impress your friends at Friday's, it's a great choice, but for business use... stay away from it.

Jason if u want to buy samsung then buy it and stop giving useless reviews here,u dont even have the diamond.the diamond it magnificent with good mp3
I have forgotten one thing to mention: handwriting recognition is not possible in some languages, so check this if you would like to buy this HTC and prefer to have this option!
Sorry to say, but I am not impressed by this phone. It looks very nice and is not really big. But it is rather slow. Tapping the right icon/button is also not that easy in the beginning, but maybe that will improve in time. Furthermore I think the screen is small and operation could be easier (but that may be a personal thing). What is very keen is the magnetic stylus, simple but effective! I haven't tested the camera, so I cannot say nothing about that. MP3 quality is also not very good. The question is if 4 GB memory will be enough? GPS TOMTOM will take about 1GB already. Some extra programs, videos and music and you will have a lack of memory.
HTC Touch Diamond is a hype! Well done by HCT, etc. But I think I will wait for the Samsung i900. I expect this will be a better choice.
heloo....actually I would like to ask anybody here that already bought HTC Diamond...firstly,can we set MP3 as our message and our call tone...secondly,actually I already tested my friend's TyTn 2 and the speaker quality is not that good...so the question is,did the speaker quality of this Diamond also the same as the Tytn?...thank you everyone..bye
