    Im 98.3% sure he was joking, this is a HTC Desire forum, its of course everyone here is going to say its the best, but it is!!

    Its good to read up on reviews but im very happy with my phone, i use it for hours every day and dont get bored, my only annoyance with it is that the battery is not exacly great, BUT this is a problem faced by all phones with these sized screens.

    Great phone but I have no benchmark.

    Ahmed, what do you want from a phone? What smartphones have you had before?

    Hello Ahmed 2020. I have been using HTC Desire for three weeks now and I can say that this is really an amazing phone. It doesn`t only do everything but it does what I don`t expect from it. When I saw my Facebook`s and Gmail`s contacts and numbers in my phonebook I was stunned. The HTC Sense with 7 homescreens come very handy. I have 16gb Sd card in it, so all my movies, pics, music and android applications have their room.:) What about sound quality, then I do not use these earphones provided with the phone itself. I personally don`t like their sound. I purchased Denon`s professional in-ear earphones model: AH-C661K, so the sound is superb. Because the android player doesn`t have graphic equalizer, I downloaded MixZing audio player application from Android Market so I can adjust the frequenzies.. I personally recommend this phone. What about HTC Desire HD, it has a bigger screen but the pixels are the same. HD also drains battery faster. If you consider iphone 4 or desire, then I used iphone 4 for a week before buying desire... I love the Desire...

    Hi Ahmed

    I have had the Desire for a cpl of weeks now. It had so much going for it, and I still love the phone. But one factor you should know, that I didnt know when I got mines, was there is not a lot of memory set aside for Apps, so you have to have a clear out of apps every so often. This annoys me. But I am still happy with the phone and wouldnt change it for any other phone. And the sound quality is great. Not used the headphones that came with it, I never do. I always use my Sony in ear headphones. And like taavikopli said, use MixZingif you want to be able to adjust the equaliser. Hope this helps.

    sound quality: is loud, dont really know how loud you want it, but for a phone it can be loud!

    headset: is loud, and clear

    voice recorder: i dont really use, but if it's crappy then you can try getting a voice recording app as there are quite a few!

    advantages (off the top of my head, google it and you should get more!):
    - if ur a fan of social networking, then this IS the phone for u!
    - internet is FAST
    - sd card can go up to 32gb
    - u can personalise it a hell of a lot
    - forget what everyone says when comparing iphone apps to android apps, there ARE quite a lot of android apps, but u must consider the fact that android is still building itself up into the world of smart phones, and a lot of people would turn to the iphone first simply because of the media surrounding it.
    - screen is big
    - supports multi-touch
    - a hell of a lot of other stuff! i can go on, but i cba lol

    disadvantages:
    - BATTERY! DX DX DX if u use it constantly, ur gonna need another battery, or ur gonna have to carry ur charger around
    - keyboard is a bit hard to get used to, but i installed the app 'thickbuttons' so its easier for me as this is my first ever smart phone, and i've had it for 6 weeks
    - im sure theres more, but these are the two main things!
