Im new about Android things, so I just wanna make things clear about "Limited system storage whic is only 120 MB for apps" is it ram or internal memory?
We can install apps on external memory right?
Dave, 17 Apr 2010Im new to andriod so how many apps can i get on 120mb memory?well a good and longer game with some story/levels can take up about 5mb, also apps like Google Earth takes 5mb, IMHO mostly the best apps are about 3-5mb so there isn't much playroom with the 100mb of internal storage... yeah i wrote 100mb, because the system keeps showing me the annoying "low disc space" warning message in the notification bar when the internal storage free space is under 20-15mb and won't let me install more apps... i have 32 apps installed + 10 games. How can someone release a phone with such limit is beyond me...

David, 16 Apr 2010God damn it! I wanna try Android but i listen alot of music and the whole "no equilize... moreYou know.. I use an Android (HTC Tattoo which is supposed to be the low end android) and the sound quality totally matches even the ipod.. You need to test before you make such a statement :o) You will not be dissapointed !!
My opinion about the disadvantages listed in the review:
-Disappointing video quality: really disappointing but there is still hope in the promised firmware
-limited ram: yeah it sucks
-No DivX and XviD video playback: there is hope in the firmware
-No voice dialing: who cares
-No dedicated shutter key: old one
-Non hot-swappable memory card: not a problem
Video quality and the limited space for programs are major issues plus the camera. but every phone has it's disadvantages. There is no perfect phone on the earth. I think you shouldn't let them keep you from getting this phone. It's got a good screen, fast processor, great audio quality, nice design, best UI and runs one of the best os with plenty of free apps in the android market. I am certainly getting this phone.
I was dreaming about this phone to come out ... now I'm so happy :D
Been waiting for this review for a while being an owner of said phone.
The version I have, t-mobile UK variant, has pinch to zoom on Google Maps...
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2010Yeah sure... Sayin' bad things about the X10 to make your Desire look better when it obviously... morejust take a look at the benchmark test and u will see how much the desire better from the crappy x10 even they have the same snapdragon 1ghz .
Noman, 16 Apr 2010What's with the brown look? The majority of people want either black, silver or white, it's cl... moreI think the brown color is actually great: it's not like every other device (boring black or white) and it actually looks good on the device.
Great!,jus read its CDMA only(Incredible)there goes my option flung through the window...sigh!!!
What's with the brown look? The majority of people want either black, silver or white, it's clearly rocket science to HTC!
Hmmm...not 2 happy about the camera and the video recording so Il wait 4 a review of the Incredible seeing it has an 8mp camera and 720p.I hope there will b unlocked versions of it.
Pinch-to-Zoom in Google Maps:
the review mentioned that pinch-to-zoom doesn't work in Google Maps. Well, on MY Desire it WORKS perfectly!!!
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2010Soon you can root desire and install apps on SD card..That is not big problem and i think htc ... moreIts the os itself that has that limitation. HTC can't do anything 'bout that.
God damn it!
I wanna try Android but i listen alot of music and the whole "no equilizer" thing is putting me off.
And i'm not high on carrying around a phone and a seperate music player.
C'mon Android, it's not rocket science, add a equilizer for gods sake, how hard can it be.
this review is suppose to be discussing about DESIRE, and i think all SE fans should leave this review alone. you are just confusing people about the product, FYI- u didnt even try the product, how do you guys know its crap? If u guys loved the x10's camera and vid, then go ahead and get it, dont have to bash desire. there are still people out there who love this phone.

Sony better than htc for smartphones that is funny..
Fact is that SONY will never produce a good smartphone and they only know how to make a good camera phone..
