HTC Desire (US Cellular)

 

Fast performance. Sharp, responsive screen. Attractive hardware design. Refined HTC Sense UI layer. Smooth, colorful video playback. Reasonable US Cellular plan pricing

Must pull the battery to swap microSD cards

The Android 2.1-powered HTC Desire is indeed desirable, with a robust feature set, a mature and attractive user interface, and plenty of multimedia goodness.

HTC Desire (U.S. Cellular) Review

 

For Midwesterners who don't travel much and are looking for something smaller than the Droid X or the Evo 4G, the $199 HTC Desire is a solid choice. It's easily the best smart phone offered by U.S. Cellular, and it's speedy to boot. However, the...

Speedy 1-GHz Snapdragon processor, Bright and rich Super LCD screen, Solid design with soft-touch finish, U.S. Cellular's battery swap program

HTC Desire review: A desire come true

 

If you've seen the Google Nexus One, you've seen the HTC Desire. End of story. We liked the Nexus One so be our guest, HTC Desire. But is it all that simple? HTC are so good they build phones for the competition. HTC are so mean they have no issues...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive AMOLED touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480x 800 pixel) ; Android OS v2.1 with kinetic scrolling and pinch zooming ; Slim profile and great build...

Disappointing video quality ; Limited storage available to the user on the system partition (you are left with only 120 MB for installing apps) ; No DivX and XviD video playback ; No voice dialing ; Non hot-swappable memory card

It doesn't quite make sense to go as far back as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 and the HTC Touch Pro. Today's story is about another couple of twins. And because the children are nearly identical, we'll try to see what it's like being mom's favorite or...

The HTC Desire is the company's second-strike in what they hope will be a one-two sucker punch for the Android competition. Following on from the excellent HTC Legend , the Desire borrows plenty from Google's Nexus One but packages it with HTC Sense...

The HTC Desire is the long-awaited Android handset with specifications similar to those of the famous Nexus One and equipped with the wonderful Sense interface. We gather this must look like a dream come true to avid fans of high-end Android-based cell...

Review: HTC Desire for Virgin Mobile

 

The Desire from HTC is the little smartphone that can and will. It may be a mid-range device, but it puts some high-end hardware to shame. Read Phonescoop.com's full review here.

HTC Desire Review

 

Names say a lot about who we are, or what something is. It's just a simple one or two words which identifies everything, without defining. And yet, a weird name arouses suspicion, ridicule, laughter, and many other instantaneous reactions. That may be...

HTC Desire

 

Although previously an OEM only company, HTC has made great strides into the consumer smartphone market with its own brand

The HTC Desire is a great looking Android device that's fun to use but its limited battery life hurts its overall appeal.
