    I was thinking of getting the Desire Hd till someone said get the desire S or if you can get more pennies get the Incredible S. So now am at a loss as what to get and is the Incredible S worth the extra cost. This will be my first htc phone as I had a iPhone 4 and did like it so thought it was time for a change

    Both the HD and S are amazing phones, but the HD is bigger. This can be considered a good or a bad thing, but either the HD or the S is a good choice

    I'm a fan of bigger phones so I would say the Desire HD is better, but if you prefer a smaller phone then go for the Desire S

    I came from iPhone4 to desire HD, and I honestly couldn't believe the size difference! I couldn't go back to such a small screen lol!

    If you look at Techradar's review of the Desire S, in normal light,they say the camera is perfectly acceptable. It's let down by a poor flash however.

    I would say the desire HD is the better phone for gaming in mind and a better multimedia player.

    I seen a review showing outcome images and videos from both cameras, I'll try and find it. Desire S camera looks poor

    I'd probably disagree that it's better :p, but after reading reviews, I don't think you'll be disappointed with it. :)

    Hi Norky!

    You may wanna check this thread out - http://androidforums.com/desire-hd-all-things-root/349960-root-phone.html - it explains the advantages/benefits of rooting... it also explains that, by rooting, you will void your warrantee... somehitng that I think is worth doing by the way (reasons why, I explain in the thread)!

    Hope that helps you out :D
