Excerpt: Okay, personally I think that the HTC desire, along with the Samsung Galaxy S are without shadow of a doubt the best possible replacements for the Iphone 4. The HTC Desire is truly fantastic, with an awesome resolution display. Under the highest illumitation both the Samsung Galaxy and the Desire are pretty much one and the same, the only difference is that the Galaxy S achieves more even with lower settings.
Summary: The Virgin Mobile website sometimes has this on sale for $159.00, I paid the full $279.99 smh. The screen resolution is less than impressive but The Zoe picture/movie editor is a really cool feature. The HTC Zara 601 Desire lacks camera and screen quality but battery life sound and overall phone functionality are great. The phone gets 4G just about everywhere or 3G in small towns, never 1x. Much better than my old HTC 3D.
Excerpt: So I just got the HTC Desire from a local cell phone company who wants my company to switch from AT&T and the iPhone to the HTC Desire powered by Android. I was clueless about Android and what it could do and even after watching a few tutorials and playing with the phone, I find it to be really nice but confusing to use. It has 7 home screens that can be customized depending on the scene that you want which just means wayyyy to many options.
Excerpt: I went from a horrible Blackberry to this phone. First I was a bit hesitant because I am not good with the touch screen but there was a BOGO deal at our wireless carrier and my husband liked this the best. I am sooo glad we went with this phone. There are several apps that are lots of fun and are extremely helpful. The new Google Maps with the Beta version Navigation is GREAT! The touch screen is actually pretty easy to get use to.
Excerpt: This is my first smart phone, and I love it. It allows me to check multiple email accounts, sync up my calendar to my google account, and send picture and text messages. When I first got the phone it took a little bit of time to get used to all of the features, and also to figure out what apps were worth the time and money.
Excerpt: It is an improves Nexus one design on the hardware side, but a custom skin on top of the bare Android on the software side. Hardware-wise, its simple and elegant looks is quite 'Desirable' to many. There is really not much you can do with a touch slate design if you're going for a minimalistic approach. I actually enjoy and like it when manufacturers stick with a specific design language for their devices. It makes it easier to identify what company it is from.
Excerpt: My husband and I are new to the smartphone world. This past Christmas we decided to treat ourselves to an upgrade. I decided to get the top of the line since it will be another 2 years before we can trade in again (I know I hate that about our cellphone provider, but we live in the middle of nowhere and now that i have a toddler, I never want to not have signal). Anyway, we splurged on the HTC Desire.
Excerpt: First of all, it has been 2 months since I have this phone. My previous phone was Sony Ericsson K700i, and I had it for nearly 6 years. So you can imagine my surprise and excitment when I'm about to buy a brand new smartphone with touch screen and everything. After heavy, heavy researching I decided to buy a HTC model and have chosen Desire because it's the best solution if you want a budget mobile phone but still with acceptable features.
Pros: Good processor, Big screen, typing friendly., Sturdy, good grip., Smooth internet, multimedia and social network experience., User friendly interface.
Cons: low internal memory, battery needs to charge on daily basis
