Great phone, tough and powerful
Member Name: rawdan
Advantages: fast and resistant to damage
Disadvantages: clogs up easily, gets dirty (my model is white)
As of the time writing this review I have owned my HTC Desire in white for just over a year. And if I'm gonna be honest it hasnt changed one bit since then, all hardware on the phone works fine, and runs at the speed that it had when I first bought it.
Now i'm quite a clumsy electronics user and I will say this phone is probably one of the toughest phones i've had, which is quite surprising considering its a smart phone. I have never dropped this handset screen first, which would probably kill the poor little thing, but I have dropped it an innumerable amount of times on its side and back with little to no scratches appearing.
My only quarrels I have had with this phone are when the memory runs low on this phone it becomes literally useless, flash doesnt work, camera doesnt work, gallery doesnt work, internet doesnt work. With a quick clean up of apps it works fast and quickly but it does clog itself up with apps overlapping etc.
Summary: Great phone!
