HTC Touch Diamond Review

 

...we have very few complaints about the outside of the Diamond Touch, and wish the software inside could live up to its promise.

HTC Touch Diamond (Sprint)

 

The Touch Diamond is a beautiful, if imperfect, smartphone that makes more sense in this 3G-enabled, subsidized incarnation. Just be sure to stay near a power outlet.

Classy styling. Gorgeous, high-resolution screen. Beautiful interface graphics. Solid Web browser (and overall software bundle).

Dismal battery life. TouchFLO is inconsistent in spots. Subpar video playback. No memory card slot. Gets very hot during calls (more so than the iPhone).

Touch Diamond

 

HTC's Touch Diamond ($350 with a two-year contract) is a well-designed Windows Mobile smart phone whose compact, candy-bar design widens its appeal.

Good call quality Excellent documentation

Occasionally sluggish interface Small keyboard

It may not fully quench your iPhone lust, but the HTC Touch Diamond is certainly worth a look. Though I ran into a few annoyances (such as occasional sluggish performance), my experience overall with the Touch Diamond was positive

HTC Touch Diamond

 

The Touch Diamond's distinctive design doesn't jibe with its sluggish performance and poor battery life.

Good voice quality. Gorgeous, ultra-slim design. High resolution VGA screen and interface graphics. Takes sharp, detailed photos.

Buggy. Poor battery life. Lacks 3G support. No memory card slot. TouchFLO interface is balky. Awful speakerphone.

HTC Touch Diamond

 

The Touch Diamond is a compelling prospect on paper, but the reality is, unfortunately, considerably less appealing.

HSDPA , Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, Atrtactive TouchFLO 3D interface on top of Windows Mobile 6.1, Stylish and pocket-friendly

Very poor battery life, TouchFLO 3D runs slowly and is not always well integrated with Windows Mobile, No expansion slot, No keyboard

HTC Touch Diamond review: Geek's best friend

 

We called it a game for the Diamond and Omnia but the crowd is still on their feet, so there we go with the HTC Diamond's lap of honor. The latest HTC squad member, HTC Touch Diamond, might as well be starting a new era for Microsoft OS-powered...

HTC Touch Diamond vs. Samsung i900 Omnia: Head-to-Head

HTC Touch Diamond Review

 

HTC is asking a premium for this unlocked phone--$779 is a lot of money given that you could buy nearly four iPhone 3Gs for the same price. However, in return, you're getting a unique and fairly versatile device that can be used the world over for...

Highest resolution of any touchscreen phone, Sleek overall design, Built-in accelerometer, Integrated GPS, Good Opera browser and YouTube application

Very expensive, Typing a challenge on small touchscreen, keyboard, So-so phone reception, No SD Card slot

Sleek, slick, and packed with features, the HTC Touch Diamond has a lot to offer (3G and WiFi connectivity), some curious omissions (no expansion card slot), and features that are both impressive and sometimes puzzling (that TouchFlo interface). If a...

HTC Touch Diamond Review

 

The HTC Touch was the first real competition the iPhone faced, even if it didn't necessarily set out to be. HTC was surely trying to capitalize on the popularity of Apple's all-touch device, but Windows Mobile is a more open though much clunkier UI...
