Ok, so I read the reviews- "Desire HD faster than iphone," "iphone beater" "HTC's fastest phone yet" etc.. So I bought one. We've been together for about a year and like any relationship at the beginning you forgive/ignore the little problems of your loved one, but in time they can become very niggly.. The main thing, and I know a few Desire/Android owners who generally say the same thing, is the speed. Now, when I'm connected to wifi, it is lightening and all works fine, indeed it is faster than my missus' iphone. However, when the mobile connection is on and there's no wifi to connect to, it goes from reasonably quick, to OK, to effing slow. Way slower than the Apple phone, there's been to many times when I've been out with iphone users (some of whom have 3yr old phones) and i've had to put mine away as embarrassingly it won't load a page, or can't find a point on the map. Which leads me to the map app, which is great. But the problem is that it only works brilliantly when connected to wifi, so what's the point? I live in central London, so I'd assume I'd get a good fix, but often it jumps around, or sometimes won't even get beyond searching for the place. All along, my friends iphone takes us serenely there. I know that this issue is true with my friends who have Desires on at least, T-Mobile/Orange/O2 and Vodafone. So how come the reviews NEVER mention this? Their models must come in and they sit next to their ultra fast routers testing them. But throughout the day a mobile connection is used much more often when on the go. I'm not a tecchy. A vast majority of people who buy phones don't want to root them, boost them, clock them, jet-pack them- or whatever (apart from people who read this web-site I guess), we just want them to work. Also, battery life; sh*te, nuff said. And now after one year, my lovely little phone is starting to develop psychological 'issues.' The light turns on for no reason, when going to Android market it says "unable to connect to HTC sense server," it crashes occasionally, it answers in speaker mode etc, etc.. iphones last for years, fact. And although things do go wrong they're pretty stable generally. I'm sure that my next September my Desire HD will be properly mental. It's a bit like having Gazza in your team, rather than a (quietly brilliant, ironically) Messi of an iphone. And that is why with my next phone I will be moving to a safe, efficient, user friendly Apple. Well, I probably won't as I don't want to be another twat with an iphone- but I needed to get that off my chest..
