HTC Touch Diamond

PC Magazine
30 April 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
30 April 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 (Sprint)

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. But too often we had to sit through Windows Mobile’s spinning circle while waiting for things to happen, and typing on the Touch Diamond is frustrating. If you’re on Sprint, the Samsung Instinct offers many of the same features of the Touch Diamond for a much lower price of $129.
  • Pros: Beautiful design, Opera browser included, Fast data speeds, Good camera,
  • Cons: Keyboard blocks some menus, Expensive, Mediocre battery life, No microSD slot,

HTC Touch Diamond

cellphones.ca
31 January 2014
  • 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). Long-awaited, backed by a highly respected name, the Touch Diamond does not disappoint. Unlike many supposed “ iPhone Killers ”, the TD is an extremely well made device that uses TouchFLO 3D technology to allow the user a full “touch” experience.

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. Unfortunately, the great eye candy of the Diamond isn’t enough to push it over the line.
  • 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: HTC has touted the Touch Diamond as an iPhone killer? But is this Diamond shiny enough to distract anyone from picking up an Apple?

HTC Touch Diamond

Airgamer
3 June 2009
  • Summary: Handyhersteller HTC  will das iPhone mit dem Touch Diamond übertreffen. Eine der Trumpfkarten soll das Betriebssystem Windows Mobile 6.1 sein. Des Weiteren sind viele moderne Ausstattungsmerkmale an Bord: W-Lan, HSDPA, GPS und auch eine 3,2 Megapixelkamera sollen die Kunden überzeugen. Auch die Auflösung von 480 x 640 Pixel spielt ganz vorne mit. Und so viel schon vorweg: Das Display ist eine echte Augenweide und kann in jeder Situation voll überzeugen!
  • Pros: VGA-Auflösung, Touch-Display, Starker Prozessor, 4GB Speicher
  • Cons: Schwacher Akku, Schwammige Tasten, Verzögerte Eingabereaktion

Expert Review

Le Monde Numérique

  • 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. Les professionnels auront un peu de mal à maîtriser rapidement l’appareil. Les particuliers seront ravis de posséder un mobile aussi beau extérieurement que graphiquement.
  • 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
