Product Description

HTC's Desire S is the successor to their award-winning Desire, one of 2010's best-selling smartphones. The Desire S has evolved to be slimmer and stronger, offering faster, smarter web browsing and the ability to record your memories in HD. Sporting HTC's signature unibody, built from a single piece of aluminium with plastic for the aerial and battery covers, it's smooth, strong enough to handle some abuse and has a reassuringly high-quality feel in your hands. Designed and built to be a market-leader, this HTC phone is a classy, high-powered addition to their range. The HTC Desire S phone benefits from an exceptional user experience, thanks to HTC's intuitive Sense customisation of the Android operating system and the powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor with 768MB of RAM under the hood that lets you do more, faster. This phone also packs in a 3.7 inch touchscreen with strong, vibrant colours and great definition, a 5 megapixel camera that's boasts auto-focus, an LED flash and 720p HD video recording and a front-facing camera to make video calls.

UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM.. Yes, it did crash.

I had this phone for 2 weeks now, and I love it. Note that my review is for the phone not the buyer, since I didn't order via Amazon. This is my first HTC phone, I had a Dell Streak 5 (runs Android 2.2) before which was huge, and the CPU and the RAM were not that powerful, so it used to freeze quite often, specially with too many apps running. This one runs very smoothly, even though it is not a dual core processor.

I was not sure if I should get this one or the HTC Desire HD. They system Spec are very similar. Since I was sick of the 5 inch phone, I chose the Desire S (3.7 inch) vs the HD (4.3 inch). The price is very similar, the HD should be available with 2.3 Gingerbread by now. The HD has an 8 MP camera which seems to be really good, and much better than the Desire S MP. On the other hand, The Desire S has a front camera which is cool for Skype video calls. Yes, Desire S was one of the first Android phones along with the Nexus S to run Skype video chat. Nexus S was another option that I might have gone with, check it out. Desire S camera is very impressive if there is enough lighting around, and it shoots 720p video, which is very crisp.

The screen is not that bad under sun light. yes, you want be read or browse properly, but you will be able to see who is calling (something I was unable to do with previous handsets).

Main disadvantage, as with many smart phones, is the battery life. I charge it daily over night, so it lasts me the whole day with moderate use (checking email, browsing, connected to WiFi, and Bluetooth headset most of the time). It charges via mini USB, so it can be charged almost anywhere.

Desire stands for Erotic and Lust, and that's what a Geek like me feels like when he puts his hands on a phone like this, the major beauty is in the inside says the grandmas and that's absolutely true when you play with this device, very fast processor and a lot of RAM to run your applications instantly with no lags, strong and reliable processor to rely on and keep your business apps, communications and mail running, and also is stylish and good looking, bright clear graphics and text to avoid tire your eyes, excelent signal reception, even for the cellular network, wifi, bluetooth and GPS, one word to describe the experience? Awesomeness

And as usual in this type of devices, we would like to get longlasting batteries, when I use this phone at it's full capacity the battery just runs for about 6 hours and needs to be recharged again, so I always take with me a spare microUSB cable and the car charger to keep it running for the whole day.

I wish I had listened to the people complaining in here.

Mine died within 3 weeks!!

After looking around the internet I found several people with the same problem.

Basically what happens is that if your phone crashes (software freezes for whatever reason), and if you try to remove the battery and re-insert it quickly the eMMC chip (internal memory) gets fried. Which is ridiculous, just proves how badly design HTC phones are.

I found out too late that you can hold Vol. Up + Vol. Down + Power to reset it without removing the battery.

To make things worse, since I live in Brazil and bought the phone during a trip to US, HTC Brazil is saying I'm not eligible to warranty claims! It doesn't matter to them if the phone has design flaws or not.

I also never buying HTC products ever again. (and I'm not alone!)

[UPDATE]

Ok, HTC USA finally recognized that the phone was defective and replaced the main board under warranty. But they charged me $20 service fee because this phone that I bough on Amazon.com was originally intended for the India market and not the US.

Not changing my review rate though, because after the repair the phone still presents some problems, as calls dropping and random crashes.

I bought this device from Wireovia about two weeks ago (end of November 2012). I had another one (bought from Europe) that I used for a few months before giving it to my wife and obviously I was happy with it since I bought another one.
This particular device I got has quite an old software installed. It has Android 2.3.3 with HTC Sense 2.1 while the last version available is Android 2.3.5 and HTC Sense 3.0. It works as expected as a phone (signal strength, volume) but it could do more as a smart-phone (Android experience).
From the first 5 minutes I enabled wireless it started downloading software updates. First it downloaded and successfully installed two FOTA updates. Immediately after that it tried to download a system update and this is where the 'trouble' begins. It successfully downloaded the 35MB system updated but it failed to apply it. I tried that a few times and it failed the same way every time. I asked Wireovia what to do and they told me to ask for support at HTC.
I've just spent one hour on the line with HTC US support trying different stuff. They told me this particular device is an overseas (UK) version. They also told me that it looks like the phone it's trying to download the software update from their website but the update is not there and this is why it fails. I did not understand exactly what is it downloading since the update is not there but it still download some 35MBs. Anyway, if I want it updated I'd have two options: either wait for the update to become available on the website (don't know when that will happen) or send it to HTC so that they update it. Obviously the second option would cost me something (money - for shipping to them, time - since it's an overseas version they would have to ask for the update in the UK).
The conclusion would be that there is a reason why there is no warranty available for this phone. Don't get me wrong: it's not like it's broken but it could do more for the same money.
