Excerpt: Had this phone for three months but it was just too slow and the apps were glitchy. Could be the old programs... but I was just tired of waiting around for it to catch up. Web browsing was abysmally slow. The screen was AWESOME at 289 ppi, but it was small an didn't make up for the app problem.
Pros: Fantastic screen resolution !!!, Great qwerty touch pad, Great Windows organization and layout
Cons: Poor build quality, Abysmal Internet browsing, Horrible video and camera, Very slow OS, Glitchy apps, mediocre battery life
Excerpt: It would have been the perfect phone for me if the form remained that of the Touch. All these new nice features with the form of the Touch, it'll almost be a Palm Pre. Too bad they had to change the form factor so drastically. New is not always best. Really too bad.
Excerpt: This phone only did me good for showing it off to friends.It's pretty, and does neat things.A bit quicker than the HTC touch, but that won't last as it too gets sluggish after a couple of weeks, if you can tell through the fingerprints.A bit more durable than the HTC touch, but still probably a...
Pros: FLASHY (but that seems the best aspect of this phone), A nice camera, A half-step up in class from the HTC touch.
Cons: Not the fastest, and after a few weeks, slow as heck., No very durable. A drop and it's probably a gonner.
Excerpt: the worst phone i have ever had. i would prefer my old samsung hue over the diamond. it freezes 5 times a day on average, it is slow (like an old computer with low memory), and the stylus is almost necessary because the screen is so small.
Summary: It was an ok phone. I thought it would be a lot better and more versatile than it is. I was a little disappointed. When your using your phone it doesn't rotate the texting keyboard but it does it in every other program. I kinda wish it would do that.
Summary: I've been playing around with a US-spec unit while considering replacing my Sony Ericsson W580i with a modern smart phone. The Diamond is a simple but elegant looking device with a beautiful graphic interface. Easily my favorite aspect of it is the weather and messaging displays..
Excerpt: The phone is very nice. It does everything...which is why I am returning it and just sticking with my Katana that I have had for over 2 years. PROS: Phone is compact and has all the features of a true SmartPhone. Call quality is superior CONS: For me, it's just simply too much phone.
Summary: I'm in the US and bought this phone recently. The features are great. I've never had a touch screen phone, but had no problems with the transition. After using it for a while I was able to consistently hit even the smallest of touch buttons. Nice small size and weight.
Pros: Very nice features. I like most everything about it.
Summary: I bought this to replace a newer windows 7 phone because the new operating system can't tether or you can't even put your own ring tones onto the system! Not happy Microsoft! Microsoft have gone back into the dark ages!
