Lousy OS similar to its PC version, keeps hanging. Poor battery life, sometimes the battery couldn't even last for 1 day and I use the hp for phone calls about 25min and radio for about 30min. Wifi is switched off.
Inconsistent volume. With the same volume, the ear phone is super loud while listening from the hp is so soft. The same for its radio and MP3 with the same volume.
When the hp is locked, you cant even adjust the volume while mp3 or radio is playing, Sony's possible.
The alarm feature is primitive. When the hp is switched off, the alarm doesn't work! The alarm doesn't keep activating if the alarm had been snoozed. You can't set music as your alarm! Sony's possible.
rajeev, 25 Jun 2009are u sure the new rom would improve battery life? though i ve downloaded the new rom of about... morei was quite apprehensive about installing the new rom too but i was fed up with the cell giving up its internet connection. the new update was worth it and improved battery life (say 30%) was unexpected. the whole process takes about 20 mins. make sure the pc does not switch off during the update. otherwise the entire process is self explanatory. i did back up my data on sprite backup but after updating my rom i realised that all the files on the internal storage was left unharmed. i had the backup of executable files for other installed programs as well. so after the rom update i did not restore the settings from sprite backup (which i very well could have). instead i used microsoft outool to get the contacts back and the rest, i reinstalled the programs.
HTC Touch Diamond, 24 Jun 2009How satisfied are you with the HTC Touch Diamond, I want to buy and to see what are your opinionsi would say in india, at about 20,000rs it has no equal in terms of wow factor, functions, and flexibility.. but buy it only if u r willing to spend time tweaking it and exploring it.. many things which u may be used to on, say, a nokia phone ve a different and sometimes not so straight forward approach on a windows based mobile.. but on the other hand the amount of tweaking u can do on this phone to suit urself is almost limitless.. and u must be ready to take a unlimited (internet) data plan to enjoy the real benifits of this phone.. nokia e71 is good option too but is not so cool on interface front and of course screen resolution on diamond is way more than e71. u know touch flow 3d interface is too sexy to resist. last but not the least get ready for daily charging and a spare charger at work in case u heavily use internet.

How satisfied are you with the HTC Touch Diamond, I want to buy and to see what are your opinions
I have being using this phone from beginning of this year(2009), that means already 6 months and let me tell you it's a superb phone. Before buying, I have compared it with Samsung Omnia (by playing with them in phone shops) as features & price of both phones were almost same. But I found the touch interface of Diamond is far better than Omnia and now I know I made the right decision.
Browsing, email, phone book text messaging, all excellent. GPS is wonderful, I use it quite frequently. This phone and HTC Touch Diamond2 are the only options in the market at this small size with this many feature.
Complains I have so far: 1-Battery life not good worst when using GPS, you need to keep connected to car charger for GPS. 2-It has become little slow some times, but please note I have applied some tweaks and changed some setting. 3-Camera is not good, but for me I don't use it much and this is not an issue.
That's it and that's all. This is a great phone.

Anyone knows what is the retail price [say from Sim Lim Square] of HTC Touch Diamond & HTC Touch Diamond 2 in Singapore? A quick response will be really helpfull...
I have experienced that once in two days, I have to restart my htc because opera mini fails to load. I usually go to start ->settings, connections tab and then connection setup. the phone configures the settings and restarts for effects to take place. After this, the browser works well again. Has anyone experienced this too? I am hoping that this problem will go away after updating the rom to 1.93.720.4. Presently, my rom is 1.93.720.2
