Summary: It arrived on Monday and I was excited. It did not come with a charger and that was fine; however, it has water damage (according to the lady at US Cellular). She showed me why (battery bar was red) furthermore she was having a difficult time turning it on. The water damage was not disclosed when I made my purchase. I just hope it lasts for 2-months.
HTC this is a good phone not great, service not so good , sometimes no services on data. very important for me.

Summary: Phone is great. Battery suck! Capital S. Service is OK. Not great, calls lag, text message lag no such thing is instance with virgin service. Data? Unlimited sometime web pages sometime loading too Long. Videos without wifi forget about it. I have not a day that I can use YouTube for more then 10 minutes. Full bars on data and LTE speed! I have full reception where I'm at. Did not go over 2gb on any given month of service.
Summary: This phone is decent, but I just bought it 2 weeks ago and the screen is constantly shutting off at random times, and I have to constantly take out to fix this problem! It has happened to many times! I say enough, I'm getting an iPhone!
Summary: There have been major, service impacting issues in my area for over 30 days. VM has provided 4 different dates for resolution, can’t tell me exactly what’s going on, and there are still major service issues like no incoming call ring or vibration. They said I won’t have to pay for time the service was out. Gee, that’s generous. I’m guess then if you shoplift from their store, all they would want is the merchandise back, no penalty.
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...
Summary: I had great expectations for this Android phone. But to be honest my Android experience has bee less-than-spectacular. I have found many aspects lacking in email support on Andriod (2.2). First, the Active-sync abilities are poor at best. Most users (me included) report that they have numerous problems with Exchange email sync. I personally have not been able (despite many attempts) to ever get a clean sync. Another issue is the lack of HTML support in email.
Summary: Hi, HTC Desire is a best of the best, except it has so many software issue, including camera pics keep disappearing and so many other users are facing the same issue but no explanation from HTC due its open source, think before u buy. i am also in tension spent $545 and this is what i ma getting a tension.
Summary: I love the photo that Desire was able to take, which was one of the reasons I bought it other than good price. But after using for 1+ year, it was quite disappointing to find too many uncontrollable process running in the phone. I am quite technical but there were no available means to kill the processes. I have to charge it every night in order to use during the day for half of the day. Then need to charge again in the afternoon.
Summary: I've been using this phone for about a year and usually works fine as many other Android phones. However, every now and then it crashes unexpectedly and restarts itself. I've been searching around and it seems that is due to a bad construction quality since the battery is loose and sometimes makes the phone to restart. Although the phone is nice this type of problem is not acceptable so I wouldn't recommend this phone.
