HTC Desire S
Advantages: good android market
Disadvantages: mine kept breaking
i gained my htc after upgrading from a nokia phone and to begin with i loved it...all the different features that my nokia just didnt have.
however, in the 10 months i have had it it has been back to htc 4 times to be repaired, which i believe is a sign of a problematic phone, and to be honest i can not wait to upgrade again.
As for the features half of them i dont really understand, and as you can not always totally "kill" all taks the battery life diminishes over 6-8 months, however downloading a task killer did start to help with this.
The screen content is good however, and you can personalise the home screens, the ringtones are ok, and all the normal standard functions are adequate.
The android market i would rate better than the iphone one, just purly that a lot of the android content is free, and you can get tons of games and apps that you would actually use - i have a barcode scanner, flash light, pregnancy apps, ect.
overall if i havent had had all the problems i have i may consider another htc, but think i may go down the iphone root now!!
Summary: not a terrific phone unfortunalty
