HTC Touch Diamond

PC Magazine
29 May 2009
  • Conclusion: HTC's most ambitious effort yet, the Touch Diamond dazzles with sharp looks and a beautiful screen, but it's held back by a hodgepodge of sluggish software and too-touchy controls.
  • Pros: Good voice quality. Gorgeous, ultra-slim design. High resolution VGA screen and interface graphics. Takes sharp, detailed photos.
  • Cons: Buggy. Poor battery life. Lacks 3G support. No memory card slot. TouchFLO interface is balky. Awful speakerphone.

HTC Touch Diamond (Sprint)

PC Magazine
29 May 2009
  • Conclusion: With its 3G support and much lower (subsidized) price, Sprint's version of the Touch Diamond makes more sense than the unlocked version, but its poor battery life and assorted software-related issues remain drawbacks.
  • Pros: Classy styling. Gorgeous, high-resolution screen. Beautiful interface graphics. Solid Web browser (and overall software bundle).
  • Cons: Dismal battery life. TouchFLO is inconsistent in spots. Subpar video playback. No memory card slot. Gets very hot during calls (more so than the iPhone).

HTC Touch Diamond Review

Digitaltrends
2 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Despite warm initial impressions of both the phone and its TouchFLO interface, extended use proved that the hardware inside wasn’t ready to handle such a graphically heavy system running on a dated architecture like Windows Mobile 6.1.
  • Pros: Fashionable exterior; ultra-sharp display; quality camera; attractive interface
  • Cons: Very slow performance; dated menus under TouchFLO; interface requires stylus to work properly

HTC Touch Diamond (Sprint) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 September 2008
  • Summary: We like the compact design of the Touch Diamond, as well as its TouchFLO 3D interface, the YouTube application, and Opera Web browser. And most of Sprint's services work as advertised.

Diamond in the rough, or rough Diamond?

Good Gear Guide.au
6 June 2009
  • Summary: The much-hyped Touch Diamond had plenty of potential, but ultimately it is a hugely frustrating phone to use. A great display, stylish design and reasonable browser are let down by a sluggish and slow user interface.
  • Pros: Design, TouchFLO design and interface, HSDPA 7.2, 4GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Opera browser
  • Cons: Interface is sluggish and slow, text entry is tedious, still requires stylus for more complex operations, no 3.5mm headphone jack, no memory card slot

  • Excerpt: Somewhere up in the rarified air, where Arabica coffee beans are grown, I think, there is a short list of highly anticipated phones that drift down, one by one, to us mere mortals. One of them is the HTC Touch Diamond (TD).

  • Summary: A true Diamond in the rough. The latest HTC device has some great features and some real thought has been put into its interface but there’s no doubt that it more hamstrung than helped by its Windows Mobile background.

Le Monde Numérique
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Mobile tactile au design superbe, le Touch Diamond mérite bien son nom. À l’usage, il se révèle un peu juste par la taille de son écran. Cependant, les applications sont particulièrement bien servies par le principe de la « couche » 3D.
  • Pros: Le design, L’interface, La qualité d’écoute, Wi-Fi et 3G+, L’autonomie, Le navigateur Internet mobile Opera, Mode "silence" en retournant le mobile, Orientation automatique des images
  • Cons: La taille de l’écran, N’accepte pas les cartes mémoires, La sensibilité GPS, Pas de housse fournie
