By George E. Jelly on August 1, 2010
I have had my unlocked HTC Desire for a little over two weeks. At first, I was thrilled with it because it has such a nice display and Android 2.1 runs so smoothly. In the last couple of days, though, it has developed an annoying issue and I think all potential buyers should be warned. Occasionally when placing a call, the screen will go blank and there is no way to end the call or get the display back. HTC delivered at least my Desire with this flaw - and there are some hits on Google about this. All you have to do is Google "HTC Desire screen goes blank" to see what I mean. Apparently, the proximity sensor used by HTC does not work correctly all of the time. What it should do is turn off the screen and disable the buttons when you place the phone to your ear. The faulty sensor does not turn the screen back on and enable the buttons when you pull the phone away from your ear. I am hoping the Android 2.2 update will fix this problem, otherwise I am going to return my phone before the 30-day return period expires.

** Edited to add **

Two things have eliminated this problem today - and I do not know which helped the most. First, Android 2.2 was offered on the Desire today and I updated it. Second, one internet post indicated that a clear scratch protector may be causing the problem. I removed the scratch protector from the screen and the problem has gone away. I am not comfortable using it with no scratch protector - but I am much happier with the phone.

I ordered this phone to replace my iPhone 4 on the ATT network and use while traveling with overseas SIM cards. Additionally, I am trying to migrate away from Mobile Me and this looked like a great option. I really like the phone and the HTC Sense interface is quite nice. However, this phone does not operate on the correct frequency for the ATT's 3G data network, so all data is transfered via the EDGE network which has slow data speeds. Unfortunately, I returned the phone.

If you want 3G speeds on ATT, make sure the phone operates on 850/1900 3G frequencies for data. Even tough this phone operates on 850/900/1800/1900 GSM frequencies the data frequencies are 900/2100 which ATT does not support.

I've been using the HTC Desire for about a month now, and I'm very, very satisfied with it. Purchased in the US to be used in Brasil, it is working wonders with a local service provider SIM.

First off, the phone's design is not as groundbreaking as the iPhone - to me the iPhone 4 is the best looking phone so far - but it's not without its qualities. It has a clean and discreet design, and I like it that way.

The Android OS with the Sense UI runs very smoothly with the 1 GHz processor built on this phone. The applications run slick, and no problems in multitasking. The screen is very sharp and very bright, the touch control is fast and accurate, pleasant browsing experience and lots of apps to boost your phone from the Android market.

Call quality hasnt been an issue yet, no dropped calls so far. Signal reception is good, and call sound is... well, ok for a phone. The music player is very good, although it lacks an equalizer (I dont really miss it though, because music playback quality is good enough without EQ when using a better pair of headphones than the standard - I'm using the Klipsch Image S4).

I highly recommend this phone to anyone who wants to steer clear of the control freaks at Apple, without any sacrifices (look for the reviews around the web, some sites rate the HTC Desire higher than the iPhone 4, and that means something).

I got the international unlocked GSM model with waranty to use it all over the world!

Now I set down in Brazil with a phone that freezes after 5 mins. of use. Have don all the suggestions HTS-support give about the freezing problems, but still keeps freezing!

Tried to talk to HTC-support US they told me to contact HTC-Support in Brazil and Brazil told me to contact FRANCE!!!!...the biggest joke in the world!!!!!

If you google the Desire you will find that there is a lot of people with the same problem and it looks like HTC don't have a solution to the problem!!!

Therefor my recommendation for now: DON'T BUY THE HTC DESIRE PHONE at this moment 01.05.2011!!!!!

My HTC repair ticket number from the US 10USCW52ENA001558 (if anybody from HTC read this!!!)

I you're looking for a review I'm guessing you want the direct points with no fluff in betwee, so here goes:

PROS:
Feels like it has great built quality and can take a few bumps
Screen is bright and looks as good as any phone I've ever seen
It is very fast, even with all 7 screens filled, it never acts like it cannot keep up
It can play Flash via the stock browser which is awesome
Call quality is clear
Speaker on the back is pretty loud for playing music, to be a phone that is
Buttons are push and not just optical
Built in GPS is awesome and always up to date and has no extra monthly fees
FM tuner using the included headphones
HTC Sense is the best UI in the business, and this phone shows it well

CONS:
Battery life, I get about a day with wifi and sync turned on, make sure you have a car charger ready just in case
Camera is ok in good lighting but indoors its not the best
No 3G with AT&T as far as I know, just 2G which still works but is kinda slow but will work for things like email, Facebook, etc

Bottom line, if the battery lasted longer and AT&T would offer support (or the other way around) this phone would not have one bad mark against it

It does cost a lot, but having the freedom of not having a contract to be sucked into makes it worth it in my opinion.
