HTC Desire S
Advantages: Great all round pice of kit.
Disadvantages: battery life can be drained quickly when running apps
Had this phone for a year now, have had no problems with it. The phone is used for the basics phoning texting, but also reading books, GPS, games, video, photos, networking apps and listning to mp3's. All in all this phone gives me about 7 peaces of equipment in one handy pocket sized piece of kit.
There are lots of apps out there that work great on this phone one of my favourates is the Amazon app, this allows me to read books anywhere and anytime books are cheap and also loads of free ones available, the GPS takes a while to connect and can disconnect on cloudy days but im sure thats not only HTC that has this problem. games work fast and no gliches graphics are of a very high standard, video quality is also superb, not full HD sound is also good quality. 8 megapixal camera gives good result, with face detection and other cool features. Networking apps work well, but unfortunately the facebook app has crashed on me several times. battery life is generally good but running apps will drain this a lot faster. I would definitely purchase another.
Summary: My next phone will be an HTC
