I got my Desire S this morning and I have to say I'm really really impressed. I've got access to quite a few phones and it almost makes me feel stupid for not going with a HTC until recently.Something I can only utter anonymously on the Internet for fear of colleagues ridding my defence of Samsung's (frankly) plastic shit. Its very well built, attractive, contemporary smart phone and I'd recommend it to anyone. Even with the duel core droids on the horizon I'd say this is worth a good look, it seems like HTC really care about making a great phone. Something that I wish all manufactures would consider, no names mentioned. Battery went from 100% to 63% over 9 hours. With about 15 minutes of Angry birds, 15 minutes of Sens 9x, 20 minutes of call time, 32 texts, and 10 minutes of Google maps. A few pictures and Wikipedia on the train for 30 minutes too. Seems pretty solid, but I've got the display brightness pretty low and all the connections (Blue tooth, WIFI, 3G and location services) off so it might not pan out too great, we'll see. If its not already apparent, I'm pretty won over by it. Apologies if the majority of this post was inconsistent battle, its early.
