You’ve seen it all and experienced the HTC Desire from my point of view. This is the final chapter of this review. This part of the topic consists of mainly the reasons of getting Desire, verdict, rating of the elements, pros and some cons. This should eventually give you a clear picture of the product and distinguish itself as one of the best Smartphone available around at this time.
We’ve already seen the powerful telephony, multimedia and camera features of HTC Desire. Now lets have a look at the connectivity features and some of the applications comes with HTC Desire. Part of this article also contains numerous performance and battery tips to make your HTC Desire more useful and snappy.
Lets see what makes HTC Desire a useful device for your everyday needs.
HTC Desire exceeds the camera power from it’s previous models. A 5MP snapper on HTC Desire turns any mobile photographer into a pinch happy snappy person in no time. Having said that, you should not expect the camera to compete with models like Sony Xperia X10, Sony Satio or LG Viewty Smart. But the 5MP is definitely a good choice when you need a mobile camera. With the advantage of Android 2.1, HTC Desire brings a camera interface that is quite competitive outside the Google OS world.
There are a number of customizable settings available such as ISO speed, aspect ratio, auto focus, face detection, geo-tagging, flicker adjustment, white balance and metering mode. Smile detection like Sony Xperia X10 is not yet there but surely the gap is getting closer. A secondary camera is definitely one of the most wanted missing feature for this line of Smartphones.
Let me show you some of the features of the camera and some critics in this article.
You’ve seen the outstanding interface and read about the high performance operations. Now all of theses requires a powerful processor and RAM. Lets see what this baby is packing under the Hood.
You’ve already been introduced to HTC Desire on the previous topic. Now, I am going to explain a bit more about Interface and UI. HTC Sense is playing together with Android 2.1 OS, giving you outstanding experience and making it way much more interactive than Google Nexus One. The interface always plays a major role in user experience and HTC Desire does that pretty well.
The layout is simple yet fully customizable. It comes with 7 home screen, 3 of them on the left another 3 on the right. You are allowed to customize these screens with widgets, icons and shortcuts. This provides an unique user experience for the user.
You can pinch the home screen using multi-touch will bring you to the leap view. Yes it’s another cool feature to switch between multiple screens. Just pinch and you will be able to see all the seven screens (TIP: Clicking the Home key twice also does the same thing) and switch between them.
HTC Desire has the similar widget concept of Nexus One. What makes the difference are the widgets provided by HTC on top of the Android OS 2.1.
