HTC's Desire is undoubtedly one of the headline Android devices of 2010
Has a sleek design with a sharp and responsive touch screen
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 and greatest features found on other smartphones, like a front-facing camera or an HDMI port, but it offers a solid feature set, top-notch design, and great performance. It's a particularly great and important addition for U.S. Cellular, whose smartphone lineup has been lacking and whose only An... Full review
The best HTC device that’s officially launched in Canada
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 processor inside, but unfortunately underclock it. I’ve been using this for over a week and can say that the 1GHz Snapdragon processor is not underclocked and has zero lag time. Even switching between the 7 screens or running several applications at the same time there’s... Full review

Acceptable for daily use and allows for instantaneous sharing of images over social networks
Love it :)
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 wasn't all that bad. I still don't know how to use this phone to the full extent! There are soo many features to it, and this is a great phone. Pros: - responses quickly - great resolution - easy to use - camera is decent, but MUCH better than most phone cameras - comes with a 8gb memory card, WOW! - has 'themes' - very customizable - apps are very good - glass screen - very durable, feels good in hand Cons: - when you remove the back, the cover is very flimsy, it feels like it's going to snap in half, be careful when removing the back cover - the screen tends to catch finger prints - wifi range isn't all that great, but that can be fixed with data plan. Overall, this is a fantastic phone and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering on buying it. It's better than my old phone! (iPhone 3g)Less
So far I love it!
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 customization is really cool. It even breaks down everything that is currently using your battery....really cool! The bluetooth times out which I hate...but apparantly there's an app. for this.. i'll download it later. Thus far i'm still struggling with the onscreen keyboard as opposed to the slide outs...but I have faith i'll get used to it.Less
Best Phone Ever
I truly love this phone...not only does it give yu the bacis smartphone features it introduces new features like tetering and internet sharing! Not only that, telus is offering this phone on three years without a data plan so yu dont hav to worry qbout huge bills...and with wifi yu can connect anywhere! The only problem i had wid this phone is that it overheats if yu use it too long and the battery life is like average smartphones, a peice of shit. Still i would giv it it 4 out of 5.Less
