Advantages: Good sized screen and handset, excellent camera, nice music player.
Disadvantages: Uncomfortable headphones.
I've had this phone for model for 18 months now and I love it.
This phone is a good size and the battery lasts me for at least a whole day - and I am quite a heavy user of apps. Turning off the autosync is recommended to extend the battery life though. The camera is easy to use and produces good quality, clear, images and has a few settings that you can play with. The music player is excellent.
The Android market has some excellent apps, mostly free. There are already some default HTC apps on the phone which are useful for syncing with Facebook, Twitter, Google and other such accounts.
The HTC easily syncs with my laptop and netbook using both Windows Media Player and Media Go.
There's also the added bonus that it charges when attached to either a computer or the wall, and the wall adapter works with other devices as well, including my Kindle and mp3 player.
I have only had two problems with it: the headphones provided with it are uncomfortable and too big for my ears. Also, the phone is not very forgiving if you drop it and I've had to replace it twice because the screen has become loose.
Summary: Excellent phone, would recommend.
