Advantages: Huge screen, easy to use, fun to customize
Disadvantages: Poor Battery, low internal memory
I originally bought this phone last year, but dropped it and smashed the screen. After going onto a blackberry for 10 months I was literally begging to get it back. I know there are lots of newer more powerful versions, but I loved this phone and so bought another one.
Frustratingly, despite it being the same model, I found it lacked the power and space for my needs. There is next to no internal memory space for new applications and if you are smart enough to add a memory card (microSD) then although transferring the application over to it is simple; it still leaves a little footprint on your internal memory - and this builds up quickly. The desire also seems to have a lot of unnecessary apps that you cannot delete.
I am a hardcore phone user with calls, texts, emails, social networking and they are a huge drain on the battery life. I found the battery life to be a nightmare. I am currently carrying around my charger to make sure the battery does not go flat. I have even bought a new battery for it but still have the same problems.
That being said , there are so many things about this phone that I love. The huge crystal clear screen, the hundreds of widgets. I also really like the customizable profile screens which you can change. Its like having 6 different phones in one (although I never change mine?!?).
My only wish is a larger onboard memory and a better battery life.
Still one happy customer
Summary: Good all-rounder and a must have
