Excerpt: Following the Legend , HTC continues its Android 2.1 lineup with the Desire -- a gorgeous cousin of the renowned Nexus One . We can trace our drool all the way back to the Desire's leak in December , but there have been some changes since then that made it slightly less desirable -- DivX support and 720p video capture never made it to the final build, but it's not like the company laid down any official promise on them, right?
Pros: Snappy OS performance, Enhanced Sense UI, Large, sharp AMOLED screen
Cons: Average camera quality, Screen too reflective outdoors, Weak battery life
HTC Desire Reviewed - The Best Smartphone on the Market?
8 August 2011
Excerpt: One of the greatest releases from HTC is reviewed here. Get ready to want one as we look at the HTC Desire. This Android smartphone has been hugely successful and taking a closer look it's not hard to see why.
Excerpt: The HTC Desire is based on the Android 2.1 platform and is revered for its sleek, slim design and fast speed. Big on sound and graphics, the HTC Desire features a 4.3 inch display with Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound. Those who use their cell phones for gaming, Internet browsing, listening to music and for connecting with friends through social media networks will find the HTC Desire more than surpasses their needs.
Excerpt: HTC was the first manufacturer to bring an Android handheld to market and since then, the firm has released numerous Android devices. The Desire is the latest and is expected to go on sale in the region in the coming weeks.
Summary: When the Desire was announced in February, I was hoping that a US variant would follow. Fast forward seven months, and it's finally here, available on US Cellular beginning on August 27th for $199.99 after rebate. Though time has passed and new devices have launched since, the Desire is nowhere near obsolete with its 1 GHz processor, 3.7-inch Super TFT display, 5.0-megapixel camera, and Android 2.1. It performs incredibly well, and the build quality is phenomenal.
Pros: Fast; offers a beautiful Super TFT display; fantastic build quality.
Cons: Desire has a strange way of calculating bars of service, and might lead people to believe that the device has reception issues.
Excerpt: While it may seem that the HTC Desire is basically a Nexus One, I’d like to challenge that notion. It’s got more RAM, better hardware, and a completely different interface. At the end of the day, the HTC Desire is the most powerful Android device that HTC has ever brought to market. This power goes a long way in providing a smooth experience for HTC’s widget-packed Sense UI, much more so than found on the Hero and Legend.
