The smartphone that took the UK by storm, the HTC Desire is similar to the popular Nexus One. It comes with HTC Sense UI and all the bells and whistles like a 5-megapixel camera, great multimedia experience, GPS and Wi-Fi.
"The Desire is yet another fine piece of work from HTC – build quality is top notch as usual, and there's little to complain about the software except for the Flash performance. Some may argue that the Desire lacks freshness since the Nexus One's already shown it all, but we'd disagree – at the end of the day it's mainly about the software and service, plus the Desire is available from more carriers to begin with (outside the US, anyway)."
"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."
"It’s hard not to be convinced by the HTC Desire; this isn’t just “good for an Android device”, it’s brilliant period. Having to think a little more than usual about battery usage is perhaps our biggest complaint, but with some experimental tweaking you’ll undoubtedly find a setup that gets you through the day with the features you most value active. Anyone looking to travel outside of Europe and still use 3G, or who predominantly uses their phone for voice calls should probably look to the Nexus One, but for everyone else the HTC Desire does a very impressive job of balancing cutting-edge hardware, Android flexibility and Sense usability."
