Wei Wen, 24 Jul 2008done it thanks... dont compare a series 60 to a windows mobile... every1 always complains about the speed, which if you know what ur doing.. e.g. its windows so like ur pc the more applications u got runnin the slower it will be duh! as for the dude with the battery problems this fone, in fact a lot n95, n82 ARE NOT ipods.. the battery goes flat pretty quick...u need a w810i if u want an ipod/fone! As for u and ur rush hour... no fones aren't meant to be handbags lol, buy a nokia 3330 and listen to them ringtones lmao! :D
I've switched to the HTC from a N95 and actually I think I prefer the Nokia. The HTC's dialing and contacts are quite complicated and the camera really sux if you are used to the Carl Zeiss one in the N95. Furthermore, the touchscreen responce time is quite long (compared to an Iphone for instance) and might get you a bit nervous. Otherwise...it's a good phone yes.
Purchase at your OWN risk. Try it out first please. It's fun to play with but a bit horrible to live with - HONESTLY!
OPINION FOR THE TRUE LONDONER - LOOK HERE!
I was pretty lucky! I had this phone 2 days..looks stunning, but thats NOT the point. I travel on the London Underground from Hampstead to Waterloo which takes roughly 40 mins, so I thought I'd use the Diamond as my iPod. Well, those 40 minutes, 3x10 min. convo's at work and another 40 mins back - BATTERY FLAT,FINISHED,GONE!!pretty horrible.
NEXT THING, the headphone cable has a mini-usb jack which I was worried about breaking as I brisk walked in and out of trains and through steps at the stations.THAT IS PRETTY SENSITIVE!
FINALLY, thumb and finger prints make it horrible to live with. Looks a mess if you dont polish it as soon as you're done using it.
So, if you drive a BMW 7 Series or a Mercedes SLK class..this mobile is well suited to you but for the typical commuting Londoner - i would not even think about having it.
I SOLD IT FOR £ 300 on Day 3. As I said, LUCKY ME!!im sure its going to be hard to sell for even £ 250 in a months' time specially after Orange have put those offers on it.
If you find this review helpful, I'm happy!
To anyone who has this phone, is the interface sluggish as people say it is in the reviews? I recently bought the LG KU990 Viewty and the touch screen is sluggish and terrible. I would like to buy this phone but only if anyone of you guys can confirm that the interface is not sluggish. I don't mind if it's a little slow, but if it's slower or as sluggish as the LG KU990 Viewty, I'm not buying it. Or should I just wait for the touch pro?
hey pple....i bought htc touch diamond last week...nd m just goin crazy wid it...its amazin world's no1 cell phone
I am in to my second week with this phone and I think it is brilliant. It took me a couple of days to get use to moving away from my N95 of which I was happy with but it was becoming old!! What I like most with my Diamond is the way it interfaces with my desktop PC so simple. Recommend.
hey guys they say it will take a couple of full charges to get the highest possible battery life... i have only charged the battery twice yet fully ad its still giving me only a days worth of charge plz leme knw thnx... moe
Wei wen, 23 Jul 2008i bought it today.. and im facing a prob... it is when i called someone using the phone... thi... moretry pulling of the standard protective cover on the screen, the put on the Screen protector (in-box). should be fine
one of the best phones i own so far. sluggish issues and battery life can be further "fixed" by updating the stock rom.
The screen scratches easily. Protect it. Buy a protective film (bodyguardz). It's only $14 online. It's scratchproof and should last a long time, and you get two of them also.
i bought it today.. and im facing a prob... it is when i called someone using the phone... thier voice seems to be nt loud enought... anyone facing tis prob?
Well I bought HTC touch diamond last week. Im totally disappointed with the battery life. The other thing is that im still confused about GPS. when we compare touchpro there is buit in GPS receiver. But in diamond there is not any receiver for GPS.
well diz one'z gonna b launched by airtel in india wid a price tag between Rs.26000 n Rs.28000..well as far as m concerned i wud rather wait for sony xperia n thn compare bth n decide d one to go wid!! cheerz.
