Have been using this for 2 weeks, and it's superb. I have no complaints other than the internet browser - it lags on loading heavy webpages. With 3G disabled (i not on any data plans), and not going online at all with WLAN & gaming, i squeezed out almost 3 DAYS of usage without charging. Calls, sms, took a few pics, listened to music and watched 15mins of video.
FM TRANSMITTER is 1 of the great features N8 has,it can also transmit the sound of videos WOW !
AL, 30 Oct 2010I would say go for n8 i have used htc wildfire and the drawbacks are
1.poor battery life left... moreNever had any issues with voice quality incalls in fact voice volume and ringer are rated the best by gsma....
And music..... 'Great audio output
The HTC Desire pulls off the same remarkable audio quality as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, but is louder in terms of earphones volume.
In fact the two frequency response graphs are so similar that we suspect a similar (or maybe identical) hardware has been used inside the two Android flagships. We suspect that HTC have found a way to pump up the volume a bit higher, which has naturally led to the minimal differences you see in the table below.
At any rate the Desire readings are excellent all over, the HTC handset pulling one of the best all-round performances that we have ever seen. '
The problem with the sound of the HTC DHD, is not only the music player, also when some one calls you the tone SUCK, like if u r carrying a speaker from 1950's
[deleted post]I would say go for n8 i have used htc wildfire and the drawbacks are
1.poor battery life left desire as it has 1ghz processor and wildfire only 528mhz.
2.music not up to the mark.
3.voice clarity during calls is very inferior as compared to nokia phones.
4.camera is there just for the sake of it.
All the best.
[deleted post]hey, check out the link
htc desire ranked 1 smartphone on the market to date.. n8 is 5th i think
if ur only after the best cam/video rec go the n8 otherwise the desire for sure
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2010camera and especially video are not that good. Battery sucks big time.
See the GLbenchmark ... morei know, but as i said, at the end it depend on on the buyer.
Overall, i advice for N8 or wait for E7.
0v0, 30 Oct 2010Dear, both are nice. But if you can afford to buy HTC Desire HD, then buy it, but a warning : ... morecamera and especially video are not that good. Battery sucks big time.
See the GLbenchmark tests and n8 beats HTC Desire HD miles.
[deleted post]Dear, both are nice. But if you can afford to buy HTC Desire HD, then buy it, but a warning : it has very baaad speakers.
Also, it depends on your taste & attraction to the mobile.
