Makror, 31 Dec 2009I bought the Diamond a week ago and so far it's doing great, not the best HTC phone I know but... morevery good and true review for this phone
btw i have this phone 3 months now and i love it
I had QTek S200, HTC P3600, HTC Touch Dual, HTC Vairy and now HTC Diamond... All off them except vairy are great phones in their time... Diamond is the best one... Really Great phone!!!
I bought the Diamond a week ago and so far it's doing great, not the best HTC phone I know but still very good, I like the size it's quite small and easy to handle.
Intalled GPS software Nav N Go iGO 8 and it works perfectly, it works faster than my car GPS! The skype mobile 3.0 also works fine and I can call people who are online on skype and saves me some money!
Battery is decent 4 to 5 days and I do use it a lot, wi-fi on almost all the time, I go on the web, check e-mails and make lots of calls everyday!
People do complain about the speed a lot and it's not a fast windows mobile device, I've seen faster devices but I don't think it's slow enough to be a problem the speed on mine at least is reasonable and if you consider what this phone can do and compare it to it's size and portability I think the speed is amazing!
Touch screen is good and quite sensitive for a resistive screen but even with the HTC software you will eventually need to interact with the windows mobile and when doing so the use of a stylus pen is sometimes unavoidable even if you have small fingers, hence the fact the phone comes with a stylus and a slot for it, which is magnetic by the way, very cool!
Well I'll come back and make more comments when I have more time with the device, these opinions above are not final!
I tried putting on Windows mobile 6.5 on it today but I couldn't. I don't know why.. I have the bootloader on which makes ROM's that are third parties go in... But when I'm putting on the ROM it stays at 0% all the time.. ;/
Can anyone help there too?
Akhil, 30 Dec 2009I am using HTC phones since 4 years, P3450 then HTC Touch and now Diamond, had a good experien... moreI have a great experience in it. If you use the 2.03 ROM its veery fast.. look on you tube..
It's not a problem when you use the T9 on phone keypad mode.. I have small fingers than adults because I'm 14 :))
PS Can someone advise me what to get as a backup phone if this dies?
I'm thinking about a Nokia 5530 or a Nokia E63. Please help!!!! AND NOT TOO EXPENSIVE!!!!!!
I am using HTC phones since 4 years, P3450 then HTC Touch and now Diamond, had a good experience with the first two, but diamond is horrible.
Slow, Control Keypad difficult to use, difficult to type messages and the worst the Touch Screen problem which i seem HTC has a technical design nag. You need to keep aligning the screen again and again until one day it stops working and you need to take it to service center. What if the phone is not in warranty??
LightSpeed, 18 Dec 2009If Xperia came in first, I would have settle for it. Nevertheless I don't regret having Touch ... moreYes i know!!
however i have them both and i have a good experience in both.
LightSpeed, 10 Dec 2009For your information, Xperia is made by HTC. Of course, you won't find the name HTC in the dev... moreYes, of course i know!!
But lets be honest... Sony Ericssons smartphone....
They are still two different devices...
And i know the HTC is better (for me)
because i have them both..
I like smartphones... i have many...
I would look for answers on http://www.xda-developers.com/ forum. There are step-by-step how to update roms which I believe will solve your insert sim problem.
i have a htc touch diamond.In my mobile not opening all programs,.if i open some message will be came.that is (No program memory available.tap start>settings>system tab>memory,stop programs that did not automatically stop,and try again.)

erold, 15 Dec 2009Can I install win mobile 7 in this model? ThnxNo chance of using wm 7. Diamond RAM is limited :(
Can anyone tell me how to make my ringtone loud on the htc diamond the volume is on max still its still low
is this phone good to buy and what do some eople mean by it lacks and does it ave 3,5 headphone jack
Under the Start->Settings->System tab, there is an option for Windows Update. I have never been able to update it. Every time I click on it, I get an error saying "Connection to update server not avialable. Check your data connection and device time and date settings". Is there anyone who has successfully updated it? What could have gone wrong in the system?
idee, 26 Nov 2009If u have to choose between SE Xperia X1 & this HTC,what would it be?If Xperia came in first, I would have settle for it. Nevertheless I don't regret having Touch Diamond instead.
By the way, Xperia is also made by HTC. However it's being branded and marketed as Sony Ericsson's product.
