Taiwanese handset maker HTC's Android-based Desire is one of the best smartphones that has been produced by the company.
The Desire shares many of its features with the Google Nexus One, which was also produced by HTC. Both, the HTC Desire and the Google Nexus One smartphones feature the same 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels, Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 processor cloaked at 1GHz plus the same Android 2.1 Éclair operating system.
But unlike the Google Nexus One, the Desire has hard keys rather than touch-sensitive ones and an optical trackpad that has a longer life than a mechanical ball.
The Desire also features the Sense UI, which provides users with instant access to updates to their friends’ Twitter, Plurk, Facebook and Flickr using the FriendStream widget.
For connectivity, the Desire, which comes with a 5-megapixel camera, offers Bluetooth, 3G and WiFi.
However, the battery life of the Desire can’t be described as good. Battery starts dropping fast enough after just a few minutes of usage. Thus, the phone can’t be recommended for those who like to listen to hours.
Nevertheless, the HTC Desire shows firm’s knack to put everything from the hardware to the user interface together extremely well.
