Anonymous, 11 Jun 2008i am dying to have this phone.i feel really sorry 4 the apple boys with their new dilemma I am dying to see your face when you pay 800USD for it. Then, I'm dying to see your face the first time it locks up because it has Windows Mobile. I'll be dying to hear the tech call to your mobile carrier when they inform you they don't support this phone or the services you want. Most of all, I'm going to be dying to see the photo with you trying to hide your face a the Apple Store when you purchase an iPhone.
The display resolution of this HTC Diamond is nothing when compared to the amazing Sharp SX862 ....TFT, 256K colors
Size 854 x 480 pixels (Wide-VGA), 3.2 inches(this screen is so beautiful - just like watching your high definationn TV in a shrunk size)!
Nick, 12 Jun 200865k colors? are they living in 2000 still?Believe me, if there's anything great about this phone, it is its colors. 64K colors is enough. What makes it even better than the N95, or even the N96, is that it sports a VGA display, and it may even have the highest display resolution. So don't underestimate the display quality of this phone. It beats them all. Too bad, that's the only thing that this phone really excels at. Well, its animations too. But performance is its major drawback.
This is my 2nd week with the phone. I'm starting to get to know the phone a little much better and I'm adjusting with the change quite well. But there are a couple of main issues that I think are important. 1st, the battery life is really bad. I have bring the battery charger wherever I go. 2nd issue, touch UI is slow, it sometimes gets stuck. To avoid freezing, don't be too quick in navigating. I'm not suggesting that you move your finger really slow, but just not too fast. Also, I noticed that it helps to avoid freezing the touch UI when you wait and make sure to let it finish whatever it's doing before moving to the next application. It doesn't like to be rushed & it does not like multi-tasking. It does not perform instantaneously like the iphone does, but it's not that bad at all either. You just need to know the device and how it behaves, then you can use it w/out any problems. With that said, this phone is overpriced for the kind of performance it delivers. I really want to love this phone, but the thought of posting to sell this phone on Craigslist has been crossing my mind. I'm thinking Samsung i900. Bummer, I'm going to lose money again.
I highly recommand anyone who's interested in this phone, to try it out before putting down your hard earned money...!
Very quiet & bad sound quality! The touch screen is slow to react(unlike the iphone which is fast & accurate)! Fingerprints are always all over the screen which make it difficult to see/read! Yes, this phone does look nicer than the iphone, but if look is everything; then why not go for the Nokia 8800 Arte - which is 10 times better looking & much more elegant than this HTC Diamond!
this phone rocks but I still belive ist should be better, more memory, more ram, flash adn better batery.
in the other hand I heard HTC relased this phone to compit withthe IPhone 3G but how can it be possible when with the money you buy 1 touch diamond you could get 4 IPhone 3G....
Would you guys really buy a phone from HTC considering this... http://www.htcclassaction.org/
Nobody who owns a TyTN2, Touch cruise, touch dual etc will ever buy one again!!!!
I think that is all you need to know to steer away from this phone, and any product from this company!
Price is way to high for this phone. Definately not worth it. 700 dollars... no thank you

does anybody know wen this phone is officially coming to the uk.i heard the ROM is being updated.is that true?
Dubai-smoker, 10 Jun 2008Huh??? Can you elaborate on that please? Like how you 'tweaked' the registry in this phone?
Download Schap's Advanced configuration tool Use this program to change the first tweak from the tweaks list i gave you in the first link.
This is the link for Schapps.
To install the program all you need to do is place the .cab file asis into the internal storage of your device, then on your phone just click start> programs> file explorer. navigate to the file and install it.
Also download CeRegEditor to edit the registry http://www.pda-ppc.com/download/utilities/content/CeRegEditor.html
To edit the registry, you don't need to install this program in your phone like the first prgram/link I gave you, Its a desktop program.
Sam, the iphone doesn't have a Bluetooth. I think the iphone is just a simple, cheep and old toy.
My Moto V6 is better
when will GSMarena guys make a review on this phone? im sure everyone's waiting impatiently for it :)
this phone beats iphone in almost every way. from its faster processor, to its smaller and lighter size, to the fact it has a better OS and bluetooth.
to top it all off, this phone came out before iphone was officially announced, and basically, iphone is just a slightly lower version of this. look up ur facts before u post
wally, 10 Jun 2008is any one know where i can find htc diamond with arabic language in uae?I don't think it's available in Arabic yet. As much as I heard, they are getting in the new software by end June/ early July.
I really don't understand why this is being called "The iPhone Killer." especially now that it has 3G, it beats this in almost every way.
