HTC Desire S
Advantages: Looks good, good linkability with your computer.
Disadvantages: Charge time!
Ive had my HTC desire S now for just over a year and I think on the whole I have been impressed but there are a few niggles with it.
So it looks slick. IT is relatively small but the screen fills almost the whole phone. I have the black edition but my Mom has the white and they both look glossy and lovely. Under the screen are 4 touch buttons that you use to control the phone and it has a camera front and back. The charger is great as you can disconnect the plug to use just the USB to charge.
Useability / Features:
These are good. You can choose which applications to put on your front screen including the usual personalisation of putting a photo as your wallpaper. There are four screens you can scroll to so you can split your apps in whichever way you like.
The apps all have icons similar to the iphone and are stored on one page in alphabetical order so are easy to find. I find the market store on the HTC easy to navigate round and download what you need.
The camera is great as it has a flash which is what I will look for on any camera I buy in the future. I have over 300 photos and 20 videos stored at the moment on there so the memory is great.
Advantages / Disadvantages:
Ok so this phone does the same as most other smart phones on the market so you can set it up to connect with your twitter, facebook and emails easily. My disadvantage is that searching people is not particularly easy as it group all of your facebook contacts in and the search options are not great.
My huge disadvantage with this phone though is charge time. It is great you can fully charge the phone in under an hour but the charge goes down really quickly and I find myself charging it almost every day. After using a nokia for years on end which would last a week, this is highly annoying.
All in all though the phone is good for somebody who doesnt use phones to their full potential like me and also good for somebody who does like my husband. I just wish they would sort out the charge.
Summary: Good smart phone.
