The fact is:
A Extended battery can be purchased for around £30.00 pounds. The orignal one that comes with phone is a 900mAh. THe new extended battery is 1800mAh. ALMOST DOUBLE THE BATTERY LIFE
The Slowness in the GUI can be resolved by having the firmware updated
can i wrote SMS with handwrite,because HTC Touch Diamond has handwrite recognation,or is it that only for office documents?
souran, 02 Aug 2008i had touch cruise for 4 months and had no problem i have diamond now for past 20 days no soft... moreI've heard a few a who had the heat under the D pad issue they came up it has something to do with the GPS being on, generally if you let run all these enhacments like wifi run it will heat things up and drain you faster.
The back cover being rubbish is a common issue to all users.
A solution to all your problems might be in getting a more hefty battery, like the article here states they are 2 types, one original by HTC and one by some chinese org. both come with new back covers which on the none original is flat so the paint won't come off and it won't wobble around on your desk.
i had touch cruise for 4 months and had no problem i have diamond now for past 20 days no software problem so far but i have one problem and please tell me if any one has faced the same thing.
The D-pad part of phone gets really hot even when i am not using the phone.and the entire mobilet gets extremly hot when i talk over 10mins.and the back cover paint started to come off already.dose any body have same issuse tanx in advance.

Lockie, 02 Aug 2008STOP POSTING ABOUT THE BATTERY LIFE! you have the option of getting a more powerful battery... moreSince the extra battery isn't included in the retail package and in fact bulks up the device I say everyone has a good darn point.
STOP POSTING ABOUT THE BATTERY LIFE!
you have the option of getting a more powerful battery so please shut up and move on.
toshka, 01 Aug 2008O yes the phone released in May and untill now there is NO GPS map?! i have the software loade... morewell. i think you are just trying be funny. i dun think htc has ever say such a thing i got my diamond during the launch and i had installed the mapking SOFTWARE and it works perfectly fine.
The phone works fine apart from the GPS which most people do not use. You just need patience as with all PDA phones.
Go onto the HTC website register the phone with the HTC club.
Update to latest firmware fixes alot of problems
toshka, 01 Aug 2008O yes the phone released in May and untill now there is NO GPS map?! i have the software loade... moreDid you try to install iGo?And a Windows upgrade it is mandatory for any HTC...:D
after reading the reviews this phone seems really bad and not fit to buy . then what do i buy ???? help help help
O yes the phone released in May and untill now there is NO GPS map?! i have the software loaded but it is NOT WORKING, when i cheched with HTC support they say ''because we wanted this device out asap, we did not have time to finilize the maps for this device/windows 6.1, therefore once it is ready you will be notified'' so how come they advertise and sell this phone NOT CHEAP will all the features, but untill now it is incomplete!
verry disappointing! i have mine for last one month, thisis my second htc before i had htc touch which was ok, htc diamond i though will be much faster with all that ram/rom and speed however it freezez very often, SLOW, battery life is just terrible, and responce i get from help center of HTC is reboot everything and it should work better!
