HTC - Desire Cell Phone

frogedude, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Pros: The pros it has good call quality, sound, speaker phone, never had any problems with dropped calls or anything of the sort. It has very decent battery life, too. Music is good.Cons: Everything else. Terrible keyboard, camera, proximity sensor that turns off screen, cheeking the 'end' button mid call. It seems very slow compared to phones that came out merely one to two months later.

very bad. I resold it.

  • Excerpt: this is the worst phone I have ever had. only 4 months of usage and I am reselling it. I am going to loss 200$ in this resell. if you use calendar, GPS and internet browsing alot. then this phone is not for you. at first I was impressed with the UI but then the functionality made the difference. the calendar is a nightmare if you want to add new appointments with details "like address". and the battery gets empty in less than 2 hours of internet browsing or GPS usage.
  • Pros: Web browsing. auto arrange after zoom in, HTC sence make everything just one click away.
  • Cons: BATTERY IS Horrible. using GPS empty the battery in less than 2 hours. So if your visiting a new city you will need separate GPS or you will be lost with a dead cell phone. and won't be able to call anyone for help., no offline maps. so if you got lost in a place with no network coverage you will be completely lost. "no maps and no phone". so what's the point of GPS if I can't use it in places that I don't know., you can't buy apps from android market in some countrie...

User Review

  • Excerpt: The main problem with this phone is the ridiculous omission in respect of a noise cancelling microphone. The result is there is a significant hiss when you speak. Voice clarity is surely the key feature on a phone, nevermind the bells and whistles.The screen is however very good and the system generally works well, although I had an issue with emails being notified on their arrival.
  • Pros: Screen and smooth performance.
  • Cons: Dreadful background noise, battery life. Email issues

  • Excerpt: i cant believe that i thought this phone was good, i bought it and gave it back the next day. the phone is so **** and it isnt that fast. i had to keep on restarting the phone because it got stuck when i went on some websites, e.g. facebook. i also think that it is heavier then they say. sorry htc ive been with you for a long time and this is your worse phone.
  • Pros: good design and touch screen
  • Cons: could`ve been faster, gets stuck too much, too bulky

SD Card and Software Issues few months later

Charles Wahab, Amazon
11 May 2012
  • Summary: This is my second HTC phone. I had the Google G1 Phone previously, which had a keyboard, and the keyboard on the Desire Z was a key factor in my decision to purchase this phone. I must say that the levels of satisfaction have declined with time: SD Card problem: After about a couple of months I started having problems with my SD card. The Picture Gallery began lagging behind, and pictures I had taken recently would not always show up.

I Desire To Get Rid of It...

Paul J. Green, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: I wish I'd read up more on this phone before buying it. It could have been an excellent smart-phone, except for the two main things a smart-phone needs; 1. Enough memory to install apps 2. Enough battery life to run them 1. I'm baffled (along with many other owners it seems) why HTC made such a whopping and fundamental error of only putting in about 160mb of main memory, of which about 140 is used by the O/S.

Anfang stark - schnell kaputt

ChrisWo, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe das HTC Desire nun 2 Jahre und kann sagen, dass ich eigentlich die meiste Zeit damit zufrieden war. Genau nach 2 Jahren (ich habe es 2 1/2) fing es plötzlich an langsam aber sicher kaputt zu gehen. Vor allem die unteren 4 Knöpfe wurden träge und funktionieren zum Teil gar nicht mehr / nach wörtlich 15maligem Drücken.

  • Summary: Telefonen var felfri när jag köpte den för 2 år sen. Nu om du jämför denna telefon med andra nya Android-telefoner så finns det en del saker att tänka på. + Bra ljud och helt okej kamera + Bra storlek för och ha den i fickan + Helt okej färger - Ganska seg processor - Android uppdateringar är begränsade ( Går inte att installera Ice cream sandwich Android 4.0) - Den väger mer än dagens Android telefoner - Den känsliga (optiska styrkulan) går inte att avaktivera, råkar...

HTC Desire il problema degli accessori

Reyrey, Ciao
19 July 2012
  • Excerpt: In riferimento al cellulare HTC desire posso dire che si tratta di un cellulare o smartfon molto buono, soprattutto in riferimento al prezzo e al sistema operativo. Infatti HTC desire messo sul commercio due anni fa(più o meno) è uno dei cellulari più interessanti del HTC. Purtroppo non si riescono a trovare gli accessori nei negozi specializzati in telefonia mobile. Non si tratta di un problema che si verifica solo ora a due anni dalla creazione ...
  • Pros: Ottimo telefono
  • Cons: accessori acquistabili solo sul sito internet
