    This is my first smart phone and to be honest I am not at all pleased with the desires hardware, I have done nothing less then protect and care for this phone and yet it still develops faults, this is my third desire in about 4 months and already it has started collecting dust under the digitiser which is Why I had it replaced the first time round.

    I have never had so much trouble with a phone in all my life, I certainly will not be sticking with this phone and I will not be buying another HTC phone. :mad:

    Had mine nearly a year and never had a single issue - seems you were unlucky

    You're very unlucky. I've had mine since release and not had any issues with the hardware at all.

    Unfortunately mass production is not infallible even in this day and age, and there will always be these kinds of problems for some people. You've just been very unlucky

    Yep, mine's coming up to a year old. Never use a screen protector - not a mark on or under it. 'Barely there' case is as it says and only offers slight protection but the phone has been fine.

    Rooted, flashed, themed, charged at least once a day cos I'm constantly playing with it and not so much as 1 battery pull.

    As long as htc phones remain rootable I'll be going to them again in a year's time.

    My phone has taken two falls, both times landing on the screen from around 2 feet onto a tiled floor (one time with rubber skin, one time sans), it's been played with by little kids etc and I have had 0 issues with it.

    I'm surprised this phone could actually withstand getting dropped, theres probably more strength in a soggy biscuit.

    I've dropped my phone twice, and nothing major has happened.
    The first time, I dropped it on my carpet, so nothing happened.
    The second time, my phone landed on stone floor, a little piece of plastic on the battery cover broke off and my accelerometer got messed up (thankfully, a recalibration fixed that).
    I've had it since last summer, and not a single scratch on the screen, only a few around it.

    I've had my phone since mid June 2010. There is a barely noticeable, 10mm scratch on the right hand side of the screen that developed in July. Bar the scratched-to-shit camera lens cover, that is the only thing that's gone wrong with the hardware of my Desire. The software problems are always my fault :p

    Ive had mine almost a year too.. Aside from the odd sms force close issues my phone has been brilliant. And Ive always had silicon case on from the beginning so I dont have a single scratch or marks on it.

    unlucky mate, i cant blame you if your experience of this device is bad.
    I havent personally had these issues which i usually have experienced on other devices

    All opinions are needed as someone wanting to get a fair depiction of a possible purchase needs to pros and cons - in this case it's one con to a ton of pros!!

    this is a place about android, good and bad
    lets not start getting into over censorship

    iphone stuff fair enough, its a droid forum not iphone fanclub but someone complaining about issues they have with their droid? cant see what the problem is

    ive been lucky with my phone when ive dropped it.

    weve seen people hardly do anything to it anf get screen cracks, some people have done nothing and got them
    some have completely smashed them from small drops
    so to be honest while it was a brash comment he made and a little snide, it actually holds water.
    these devices ARE fragile. the have a 3.7" screen and are thin

    Let's just let the thread die a normal death. ;)

    maybe but I dunno...not a very informative or aware con though..."theres probably more strength in a soggy biscuit" just seems more like a rant then actually advising people on a possibly bad purchase...just strikes me as more this guy is p*ssed off at HTC and would rather moan and say they are all bad..

    I'm with deanshep on this one. Forums like this are, surely, about asking questions and sharing knowledge and information for the good of all the users here.

    I'm sick of these whining threads that serve no purpose other than to vent the OP's spleen! No one cares whether you're going to buy another HTC. So why post about it? Are you so full of yourself you think anyone here gives a damn?

    Maybe the right thing to do is not to respond and let these threads slip quietly off to page 2 where no one looks.

    I'll do that in future, but I also think the Mods should consider whether a thread serves any useful purpose. If it doesn't then it should be deleted. This is just a web forum, it's not like there are human rights at stake, no one is going to sue because their stupid post was deleted.

    "I'll never touch HTC again", "My Desire is rubbish" threads appear almost every week, it's dull and pointless.

    check my edit

    if you dont like the post, dont post in it.
    theres nothing in the rules saying a user cannot complain about their device and share their annoyance
    are there rules saying people cant say how brilliant their device is?

    wind your necks in

    its actually more annoying getting threads like this and watching the thread police bitch and moan about something that doesnt even affect them
