Many people complain the "slow" of TF3D and compare with iPhone.
The difference is that with TouchFlo 3D, it is switching through applications NOT, icons like with the iphone.
Each area is a seperate application which has its own individual functionalilty. On an iphone all you are doing is switching between icons then launching them when you click on the icon.
The iphone home screen is basically a large version of the Diamond program list which easily scrolls through just as fast.
And with the ROM 1.93 the diamond just shines and is very quick too...
please guys can someone tell how do you increase the ear pierce volume during calls, i recently purchased the touch diamond. loving it
Pros: The HTC Diamond is a remarkably complete smartphone, with all the
features I could think of. After software update (ROM update of 31/7/2008, AFTER
your reviews) the phone performance has greatly improved.
Cons: The stylo is still a pain, and I dislike MS drop-down menus. Also, it lacks shortcut-buttons, for instance to connect to wi-fi (the Treo Pro has that) , which
would bypass the cumbersome drop-down menus.
Summary: This is an excellent phone, way ahead of the pack, and vastly superior to the much.-touted iPhone. A fair part of my enthusiasm is due to the release of the new
ROM software (which for me in Europe came as an Internet download, but most
of you folks will likely get it from the outset); this update removed completely
the phone sluggishness (slow? NO way Josè) . Also, i suspect call quality may
depend on operator: in Europe (and I visited all major countries in the last two
months, i.e. since I bought the phone) there is no trace of such poor performance
as related by your reviewers.
One can hardly be completely satisfied with a Windows OS, of course; still, the
phone operates through 2-3.5G connections, has wi-fi, bluetooth, GPS,
connection to a fast GPS location system, Google Maps, Opera browser
(thank God for sparing me the humiliation of using IE),; I would have found
it useful to have a short-cut button to link to a wi-fi connection (like the
treo Pro has), and it would be nice to have Skype already downloaded on the
system (but that surely would be asking too much, wouldn't it?) ; also, it is
disgraceful that the MS OS does not come with a version of Active Sync that
works on Linux systems too, but then again I might be now asking too much.
In short, the very best phone I set my eyes on so far, while waiting for the HTC dream, of course.
The one time I got my hands on this phone, the only drawback I could see was Text Messaging. It appears it can't go landscape - and therefore could not get a one character per button format in large enough font to use without a stylus. Did I miss an option - is it possible? The two character button qwerty format is a hybrid I'm not real fond of. Thoughts?
Dear Friends, how is the Touch Diamond now compared when it was first released? Is it still slow or now the Touch Flow 3D is okay? Is it the same speed as Touch Pro? Thanx...
I love this phoneeee
sending text using the stylus is a nite mare!

Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008i am having trouble setting an mp3 as a ringtone.please help.Okay, this is how you do it. On the homescreen, touch programs( the one on the bottom of the screen. here you have a few empty slots. Touch of the those slots and add mp3 trimmer. Now all you have to do is open mp3 trimmer, tap open to find the MP3 file in your phone. Tap menu now to select to whether set the file as the default ring tone or save the file to the ring tone folder. I hope this helps you
To put the mp3 as ring go to settings - sounds & notification - notifications - Event = phone: Incoming call | Ring tone= "the music you want must be at music folder to be listed"
