HTC Desire - Great smart phone
Member Name: redders1977
Advantages: Very easy to use, quick, nice to look at
Disadvantages: Poor battery life
The HTC desire is my first smart phone and I love almost everything about it !!
From the moment you take it out of the box you can tell what a great bit of kit it is, it feels solid and sturdy. The buttons on the bottom bar are nicely placed and the whole thing just looks great.
Once you've got over it's look, does it actually do what it's supposed to ? It certainly does, the Android OS is a dream to use, there's a short cut for everything, hold and press and you are able to cut and paste just like your average windows pc. Internet access is great too, just double press and the screen will auto zoom to fir to the screen. Everything is so smooth and easy to use, you can customise absolutely everything, and place your short cuts on multiple screens. There are thousands of free and paid apps available from the android market place which enhance your experience, from new music players to great little games ! The phone is very responsive and smooth and a real pleasure to use
Now down to the only bad point for me, the battery life is poor. I can use it for an hour throughout the day, a little web surfing and the battery can be gone by the time I get home, not good if you are always on the go and need this when travelling etc.
Having said that, I love this phone, it so easy to use and I'll definately be using an Android/HTC combination again
Summary: An Excellent phone, still one of the best out there
