HTC Desire Extensive Review

October 1, 2010 | by

HTC has produced some of the finest pieces of cell phones over the last decade and has gained immense popularity.

With 2010 being the peak for the Android biz, HTC Desire happens to be the phone people are eying on. Now, this can well be controversial. I do not mean that people aren’t getting iPhones or Blackberry’s but this is something new and it re-defines the notions of style and comfort altogether. HTC Desire has in-fact turned out to be a very good competitor to Steve Job’s iPhone. Desire not only happens to be less expensive than iPhone but also provides you with all the same set of features that one can find in an iPhone. HTC has carefully chosen flaw-less features and has power-packed them in to the Desire. The smart phone provides it’s user with a vivid range of apps, magnificent web browsing capabilities and one of the best if not ‘the best’ displays ever. Apart from all this you can check on the camera which in-fact is a good one, a music player that is sure to add joy while you are on the run and while the notion of traveling and adventure comes in, HTC Desire also flaunts a GPS. All this is backed up by lightning-fast 1 GHz processor and 576 Mb of RAM.

If you speak of HTC Hero then let me tell you it was good but could have been better, and here it is the Desire much alike the Hero but way to ahead of its predecessor.  Now, if you would love some tech talk then I could perhaps explain to you further the details of the desire experience.

The phone comes along with a capacitive display to deliver you with dream touch sensation.This device will also flaunt pinch-to-zoom capability so that you can seamlessly zoom through pictures. This gadget would depict the amalgamation of Android 2.2 a.k.a. Froyo with the specially-designed HTC Sense interface. The users now can enjoy super-fast mobile experience with Desire’s 1GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon CPU, a voluptous 576MB of RAM and support to expand the external memory all the way up to 32GB.

  • Camera : 5 MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
