After all the gimmicks of Hardware power, I came on to the HTC Desire Telephony section. Typically Telephony supposed to be simpler such as – Browse contacts, dial, talk and then hang up. But HTC Desire bring it to a whole new level of Telephony combining the power of social networking and information management. I’m trying to keep this post as short as possible. But then we’re going to talk about a bit more of Contacts, Call quality, Messaging and few other components. Lets take a wider look into these.
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.
HTC tends to make better phones day by day. The Android device HTC Legend which has already made a huge amount of buzz. You might have seen the Nexus One from Google. HTC Desire packs the almost the same hardware as Nexus One has with some added Power Punch.
While HTC Desire is making a wave around the mobile world, I have a privilege to do this review on hand. I’ve been testing a HTC Desire from Maxis (Malaysian Telco); they are the first Telco to bring this phone officially in Malaysia. This topic ought to be arranged into multiple parts so you might want to check back often till I complete it. For this topic I’m adding a hands on video experience of unpacking this amazing device from the box.
