Newest Review: ... III my partner has, which is thinner and quite a good looking gadget. I don't think this HTC Desire tries to be particularly good looking.... more
A legit alternative to the i-phone

Advantages: ideal size to enjoy large screen without being too cumbersome, not an i-phone!
Disadvantages: Honestly..nothing stands out as a disadvantage
Now lets be honest...when buying phones of late, you will almost inevitably compare to the 'market leading' i-phone. So when you next look for a new phone this is hands down one of the best out there.
Specifications of the HTC desire put it a cut above earlier models of the i-phone and on par with i-phone 4 so you are never going to be short on power. The screen is large and nearly covering the full body of the phone allowing a very reactive easy to use touch screen with great colours and definition on screen. The built in camera is of good quality for a phone too and your pictures will look great on the phone and still fairly good when transferred to computer etc.
It operates on the 'Android' platform which is essentially the operating system (by comparison to windows phones and i phone os) This system is arguably the strongest of all as it is constantly updated allowing your phone to evolve and never really become outdated. Additionally apps on Android are largely free unlike their counterparts.
For the boring but I guess essential things, call quality is decent with the usual in call volume controls available and speaker phone whilst not very loud will allow hands free calling.
Overall a fantastic phone, I certainly feel it is at least as good as an i-phone and to be honest its nice to support a different brand from everyone else..
Summary: One of the best phones out there at a great price
