Excerpt: .... but I prefer the Original Touch MP6900 over the Diamond. Pros: 3.2 Megapixel camera. It's in a class of its own. Not very bulky. Big, bright screen. No's: Limited to 4GB of internal memory, no expansion slot. Phone heats up after charging for 10 minutes Battery life sucks (and yes, I know how to close what I'm not using). It took me FOREVER to get past the initial setup (it's not me because I've used many Windows Mobile phones, and know what I'm doing).
Summary: i got the middle east version of the phone, they are a lot of drawback in the software beside some hardware problem, another thing the i got the touch pro version of the HTC diamond, internet is not that much of quick but its fair for a PDA I guess.
Summary: As with most other reviewers, I think the phone's a very clever piece of kit, the GPS is really useful, the device is tiny and works well. Windows mobile OS isn't as good as others like the Iphone OS and it does occasionally crash and is a little slow, but all things that don't majorly detract from the device. HTC claim this has a standby battery life of over 280 hours... i.e. 10 days and nights solidly. This is total nonsense.
Summary: The phone looks and feels slick but for me it was disapointing, the cons are The control pad at the bottom 9 button all on top of each other left, right, up, down, home,endcall, start call,back and the select butto so you will find urself hitting the wrong buttons however this is unlikely as you will nott use the d pad much I highly recomend getting the screen prtector and/ or case however this can play havoc if it comes out of screen saver mode and i use a pin lock and...
Summary: Very slow to react at times. Windows is pretty unstable. Takes ages to connect to pc often. Various programs crash for no reason. The programs I like are available on other phones that run them better; ie, google maps. The handsfree speaker is lousy. One of our phones actually answers itself and you have no idea who's there. All while it's still sat on the desk. Its main problems are Windows and a severe lack of power. I'm trying a Nexus next.
Summary: I have one of these as a company phone - so hopefully this review is objective since I haven't sunk over 300 quid into one of these things. So - plus points: - You can get your e-mail on the move. - Nice Hi-Res screen. - The Weather App is nice. Minus points - Battery life is terrible. Feels like I've been thrown back 10 years, you end up walking round with a spare battery, car charger & USB cable everywhere you go.
Summary: HTC Diamond 2. You can't rely on the device to be working at the end of the day because the battery performance is poor and who expects to be able to keep a mobile device on charge every day. A fully charged battery may just about last one day if you just have the thing on stand by all day, but what's the point of having such a mobile device unless you are going to make a lot of use of it during the day in which case you end up fretting the battery is going to go flat...
Excerpt: This phone really anoys me, its so nearly good - the touch flo is OK, but too fiddly and too unreliable, i kept selecting items when i was trying to scroll and kept hitting the wrong item on lists. No memory card is just unforgivable on an $800 phone (what can a slot cost? - $2?
Excerpt: A number of issues:PERFORMANCE - Gain not significant enough to upgrade. Since upgrading my HTC TyTnII to WinMobile 6.1, the gains in performance have been significant, neutralising the benefits of the Diamond Hardware spec improvements that don
