If you had known about the Nexus One, then you know that it runs on Google’s Android operating system and was one of the early mobile phones that pioneered the use of it. The HTC Desire is a slick mobile phone with cooler features than its cousin. It still uses Android and includes a speedy 1GHz Snapdragon, large AMOLED screen, the company’s latest revision of its enhanced Sense UI and goody!, no more trackball!
One nice thing to comment about its Sense UI is that it has this so called feature called Leap View. Basically, pinch the screen in using multi-touch (what do you know, it is supported too) and you will be able to see all seven screens at once. Quite handy if you are over on the far right screen and you want to check the weather on the far left (pinch and prod and you are there, pretty convenient if I say so myself).
The phone is very slim, with dimensions of 119 x 60 x 11.9 mm, and weighs in at just 133g. The power button also functions as the lock key and is very nicely placed to press whenever necessary. The USB slot is hidden at the bottom – no cover to keep the dust out and on the plus side it is of microUSB type, banishing the memory of the horrid miniUSB port from HTC designs of old.
The Desire is yet another fine piece of work from HTC. The product quality is top notch and the new and existing features are nothing to complain about except maybe a little bit in the Flash performance but is that really important? 😉 While people may see that these features already exist in older kinds of models, it is always the efficiency and functionalities that makes it better than its predecessors.
