A detailed HTC Desire review from UK T3 Magazine

March 31, 2010

T3 have published a more detailed review of the HTC Desire on their site. They have acknowledged that the Desire is an iPhone-beater (not killer because you can’t kill a phone that’s already sold millions can you?).

Here are a few snippets:

Right now, let’s put aside that dumb phrase “iPhone killer”. The fact that a phone is better than Apple’s all-conquering, landscape-changing, gadget-genre-inventing device doesn’t “kill” it, any more than Chelsea defeating Man United means that that particular football team is dispatched to the Araldite Glue League (Northern Area). But make no mistake: this phone is better than the iPhone.

As we mentioned, the Desire is one of the most powerful Android phones on offer, and it shows when you pick it up for the first time. It reacts to your slightest touch, slipping between home screens without a hint of slowdown, and allowing you to open multiple applications without destroying the user experience.




Why I [Clare Hopping] hate the iPhone

March 28, 2010

Clare Hopping has been venting her spleen on about the reasons she hates the iPhone. I know it’s not exaclty Desire-related but it did make me chuckle. All the things she wants in a mobile are quite clearly available on the HTC Desire so maybe she should make the switch..?

Here’s an extract of one of the quite simple tasks a phone should be able to do:

Make phone calls work
It’s not just the fact that my iPhone never has coverage, despite both my iPhone and BlackBerry Bold 9700 being on O2, it’s also that making and taking calls isn’t as easy as just pressing a button to perform the desired function.

You make a call, talk to a friend and then hang up. With the iPhone, you make a call, talk to your friend, have to remove the phone from your face and wait a second before the proximity sensor realises you no longer have the phone stuck to your face so you can hangup.

If you’re too fast to press the end button, it switches to speaker phone.

Another irritation is when you receive a text message while on a call, you’ll have to read it or at least select it before you can terminate the call.

7 reasons to NOT choose the HTC Evo 4G over the HTC Desire

March 25, 2010 have posted a nice little article telling you why you should choose an HTC Evo 4G over a Google Nexus One.

That’s all very well for US users but what about us UK folk who probably won’t see 4G for another 5 years?

Well I’ve put together my comparison list for reasons NOT to choose the HTC Evo 4G over the HTC Desire. I will use the same comparisons that Androidandme but will use the Desire as the example phone rather than the Nexus One


The new and amazing *BLACK* HTC Desire “prototype”

March 22, 2010

The Internet has been full of posts about this new “prototype” HTC Desire that comes in a sleek, sexy black colour.

Granted it looks nice but isn’t “prototype” too strong a word? I think it is. You wouldn’t have called a Nokia 3310 with a red casing on a prototype would you? Well if you would then you’re stupid.

As sleek as the black prototype version of the phone looks, I can’t help but to still be in love with the original silver version.

Something for the weekend: 8 minute HTC Desire Video

March 20, 2010

Just found a great little 8 minute video on YouTube showing off the HTC Desire and Legend – but mostly the Desire.

It’s not the usual MWC video where the rep just reads his script out; there’s actually a few diferent things he shows you and he certainly seems to know what he’s talking about. Makes a change at least!

Enjoy 🙂


HTC Desire vs Apple iPhone 3GS vs Nokia N900

March 16, 2010

This surely has to be the battle of the titans in the phone world? have posted an article where one of their staff has compared all three phones.

Most articles I’ve seen like this are normally biased towards a particular manufacturer or phone but I’d say that this is quite a fair comparison.

Read on for a few snippets:


Some new HD Desire videos to brighten up your day

March 14, 2010 have uploaded some lovely high definition videos of the HTC Desire – 3 of them in total.

Bonus: You don’t have to have a GCSE in German to understand the videos because there is no narration; just some cheesy sounding background music instead.

The first video shows off the main design of the HTC Desire which I’m sure most of you are sick of seeing by now so I’d recommend skipping to Parts 2 and 3. You’ll get to see the Desire’s applications up close and personal from Photos, News, Browser and more.

Part 1 – General look at the design of the phone

Part 2 – Pictures, Music and Browser

Part 3 – Weather, Camera, News and FM Radio

I suppose I should get off my laptop now and go visit my mum 😉


HTC Desire Specifications

February 24, 2010

Most of the world know the Nexus One’s technical specifications but what does the HTC Desire pack?

Well aside from the slight difference in design the inside is pretty much the same as the Nexus One except for one important thing – RAM.

The HTC Desire has and extra 64MB (12% ) of memory to run all your favourite apps and programs. That may not sound like a lot but reports from Google Nexus One users who hacked their phone to give another 10MB RAM saw a big improvement.

Here’s the full spec from HTC:
