HTC's Desire is undoubtedly one of the headline Android devices of 2010

from Engadget (over 4 years ago)

Make no mistake: if you're a US Cellular customer looking for the best phone the company has to offer, the Desire instantly becomes the no-brainer choice now that it's been released at retail. And actually, looking at all of the larger regionals, you could make an argument that this is perhaps the... More

Has a sleek design with a sharp and responsive touch screen

from CNET (over 4 years ago)

First announced at Mobile World Congress 2010, we've had to wait seven long months for the HTC Desire to land Stateside, and admittedly, we were worried that it would come up short compared with some of the smartphones that have come out since. We were wrong. Sure, it doesn't have some of the latest... More

The best HTC device that’s officially launched in Canada

from Mobile Syrup (over 4 years ago)

Once in a while there’s a phone that actually lives up to the specs, the HTC Desire is one of those devices. This newest Android device from TELUS comes with OS 2.1 and the much talked about 3.7-inch Sony Super LCD display (resolution of 480×800). Other devices claim to have a 1GHz Snapdragon... More

It is attractive, packed with features and highly enjoyable to play around with

from Bright Hub (over 4 years ago)

This is a smartphone with the same broad appeal as the iPhone. It is attractive, packed with features and highly enjoyable to play around with. Android Market is fast catching up to the Apple App Store in terms of choice and the HTC Desire is well placed to capitalize. Great value for money, top quality... More

Acceptable for daily use and allows for instantaneous sharing of images over social networks

from PhoneArena (over 4 years ago)

Is the HTC Desire worth its price? Yes, definitely. We would have to become rather petty in order to come up with a list of shortcomings. If you like handsets with compact size and feel willing to sacrifice extra features for it, you better consider the HTC Legend – talking from experience here.... More

Love it :)

(over 4 years ago)

So far, I've had this phone for a month, at first the battery might seem really short, I had to end up charging it everyday, but of course, when you get a new phone you would go on it almost every minute and try to figure out how to use it. After I got use to the phone, I noticed that the battery... More

So far I love it!

(over 4 years ago)

This phone is MILES above the old HTC phones, I can tell you that. All the standard apps (internet, maps etc) work smoothly as though they are designed for the phone... as opposed to the old HTC smartphones where they just seemed to awquardly run them the best they could. They style and homescreens... More
