Summary: Great phone on paper. The specs simply cannot be denied. Sense UI is spectacular. The phone it self sucked though - it overheated 5-6 times per day, and would get stuck in boot loops where the only way to stop it was to remove the battery. Look around on the web, this is a common problem amongst the AMOLED Desires. I cannot comment on the SLCD Desires because I have not had one.
Summary: This phone is diabolical. The battery life is beyond terrible (I am down to less than an hour of use, even with a replacement battery). The signal reception is very poor compared with other phones on the same network. I'm not terribly impressed by Android OS and the usability of email and text is also bad. Just avoid this phone as there are much better phones available.
Summary: Unfortunately although this phone is stacked with super functions it has one major failing - as a phone it is rubbish. Reception is dreadful, if you want proof check out the Vodafone HTC Legend forum - currently 900+ posts complaining about reception and 90,000 views ( by far the highest viewed post on the entire Vodafone forum ). [...] Like many users I am trying to get an exchange from Vodafone.
Summary: HTC Legend is the successor to HTC Hero. Given that I have been using iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, HTC Hero and HTC Legend - I can safely say that this phone is the best in the above category. There were some stuff missing in Hero both from Android and HTC, but they managed to more or less fill up those gaps. I ordered this phone on Thursday evening, recieved it on Saturday morning. Was playing around and migrating stuff.
