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...

HTC Desire (Virgin Mobile)

 

The HTC Desire is a well-crafted Android phone for Virgin Mobile subscribers, offering solid features and 4G LTE speeds for a reasonable price.

4G LTE support. Loud stereo speakers. Comfortable, well-built design.

Average call quality with low maximum volume.

Conclusions There are a few routes you can take when choosing a smartphone on Virgin Mobile. On the high-end, you can grab an iPhone 5s for $499.99 or a Samsung Galaxy S III for $399.99, the latter of which is a year old. You can also grab the LG...

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: HTC Desire (U.S. Cellular)

 

HTC Desire (U.S. Cellular)

The HTC Desire features a sleek design with a sharp and responsive touch screen. The 1GHz Snapdragon processor keeps things running smoothly, and call quality is good.

No voice dialing over Bluetooth. Camera and camcorder quality are so-so.

Sleek and fast, the HTC Desire is not only U.S. Cellular's best Android device but the carrier's best smartphone to date.

HTC Desire Review

 

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...

HTC Desire Review

 

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...

HTC Desire 610: A not-so-good Android smartphone [Review]

 

HTC has been extremely busy recently in terms of unleashing handsets upon us. Over a period of just a few weeks I have reviewed the flagship HTC One M8, the smaller format HTC One mini 2, and the HTC Desire 816. Now, with barely a pause for breath...

I liked the HTC Desire 816 a lot, but the lower cost, lower specified Desire 610 seems to suffer from some badly made choices in order to reach its price. The screen resolution is a particular annoyance, and the chassis design does the phone no...

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

 

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.
