HTC Desire : An Impressive Phone

By Mark Walters

The attractive looking HTC Desire is, in terms of its appearance, almost identical to the previously released Google Nexus One. It measures in at 119 x 60 x 11.9mm and weighs 135g. The handset packs in a vast array of features despite its small size, and is definitely up amongst the best smartphones on the market right now.

You will be able to find smaller smartphones, but none that provide an impressive 3.7″ AMOLED screen as the HTC Desire does. It maintains the smooth and neat curves of the Google Nexus One, which was also manufactured by HTC, but a noticeable difference, and a change for the better, is the replacement of the trackball beneath the screen with an optical version. The optical trackball looks better and is much more responsive and accurate.

The HTC Desire comes with a high quality 5 mega pixel camera built into it, which is supported by auto focus and an LED flash. The new flash function means that pictures taken in low lighting conditions still look great. The camera can capture video footage at a resolution of 800 x 400, and id perfect for making videos on the move. The built in memory (512 MB) is not, unfortunately, able to hold a great deal of data, however, there is a micro SD card slot which allows you to expand the memory to 16 GB.

The phone runs off a powerful 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor. This is the fastest processor available for cell phones and the result is that you never have to wait for screens or apps to load. As well as the increased processing power, other real crowd pleasers are the newly incorporated Sense user interface coupled and the Android 2.1 operating system. The homescreen is well presented and the navigation system is, arguably, the best that any manufacturer has come up with.

Features of the Sense system include an improved calender widget which offers the user an agenda and not just a view of the present month. If you scroll your finger across the bottom of the screen while in an app, new elements of that app will open. Navigation is very easy as this principle is incorporated into messaging, contacts, screen music, etc.

You can even change music tracks, due to improvement in the media player facility, by dragging your finger across the bottom of the Desire. A very deep and natural black color and a good responsiveness are features of the 3.7″ screen which does a great job with movie playback.

The HTC Desire will undoubtedly be one of the best smartphones to come onto the market in 2010. With its terrific looks, fast performance, and its wide array of features, it is going to be a hard act to follow.
