I got the diamond 2 months ago, it took me some getting used to, but i really enjoy the phone. Here's some observations of mine:
-Excellent organizer functions
-Easy to navigate/customize
-Great sound quality (on calls)
-EASY texting (you can change keyboard styles)
-Vibrations are strong enough to notice through my jeans (never found a phone with strong vibrations before)
-I get 2 days battery life out of mine, with moderate use
-The interface is laggy, it takes a second or two for anything to load (doesn't bother me that much though)
-The icons are confusing to learn, everything is labelled with pictures, not words
I've had a few cell phones, but this is my first jump to a smartphone and i'm very pleased. Web browsing is a charm, just make sure to use the Opera browser, not internet explorer!
iamani, 12 Feb 2009pls let me know honestly, is it a good phone to use? if compare with other high branded phones... moreI bought 2 Touch 3700(Diamond), 1 Touch 3702(Victory) for my wife.. we live in USA Denver. use T-Mobile. We used these phone for about 4 months, it works well. Of course, some features need to modify it yourself. There are a lot of developers, people make this Diamond almost perfect. Especially XDA, you can find almost of useful features for your Diamond device. I enjoyed this phone very well.
I have had mine for about six months during which time it has broken down twice, taking a month to repair. Support is shocking. The set itself is poorly designed. Adults are unable to read the text with the font at its largest setting. The touch screen is insensitive. It only responds to the stylus not finger touch. Simple functions like making a call takes several (virtual) button presses. Address book management is rediculous. Connectivity is poor. Battery life is non existant. I can go on, but you will not want to read that much and I will run out of space here. I am trying to get rid of mine so that can buy a cheaper, more reliable phone with more features and better functionality, like a Nokia E71. let me know if you want to swap, but I could not recommend with a clear concience that you do so.
