2 weeks in: my HTC Desire Review

By | Blog, Photos | No Comments

So I’ve had my new HTC desire for.2 weeks.now and despite my dodge typing on the touch screen keyboard…well that’s just me really!!!

Best bits.

  • Google integration – Seamless -All I had to do was enter my google account name and password and it did the rest.
    • Gmail
    • Contacts
    • Calender
    • Maps
  • Twitter & Facebook clients that are usable.
  • GPS Stuff
    • Google Maps
    • Google Turn by Turn navigation – proper Sat Nav yo!
  • Android app store, It notifies you of UPDATES and there are various Games and Applications but notably:

I have to say:

this thing is awesome!

Is it better than an iPhone? I would say yes it is and i don’t base that on my blatant disregard for the iPhone. Lets face it, The iPhone is one of the biggest innovations in technology in years but i do need to remind people of this post which was the SPV M700 which was a HTC device!

HTC have been doing the whole touch screen PDA handset for a lot longer than apple and as a result they do some of the groundwork alot better. This Desire is more customizable, its faster, its more versatile, it’s cheaper by a long way and I didn’t have to sell my soul in to a crappy new poorly priced iPhone only contract!

I’ve been blown away with this handset and what its capable of. Usually within a few days I’ve got a handset sussed but this has been overwhelming at times and I’m still not 100% clued up on all of its capabilities. There have been a few glitches;

  • Alarm clocks.
  • Start-up apps.
  • Battery life

But these i’m looking in to and updates should sort them

The battery life is an issue but i was aware of that when i bought the phone.

All round – its incredible!
