HTC Desire – The Android Phone

I have been using a few Android phones for a while now and overall they have made huge strides with the different iterations of the Operating Systems. I know for one that I am looking forward to seeing a sleek Android tablet since it feels more internet oriented then the Apple OS which is more Application oriented and Apple does have a lot of amazing applications. I hope they keep improving on this operating system and more amazing phones keep coming out, I for one am loving the HTC Desire.

The Good:

  • Accurate Touch Screen
  • Big and Bright Screen
  • Very good Camera and Flash
  • Excellent Battery Life (Much better then the Nexus One)
  • Charges very quickly (Nexus One used to take too long to charge)
  • Solid EDGE/HSDPA/3G connectivity and smoother switch over to Wifi when available, Data is excellently managed and integrated (Nexus One was choppy at times)
  • Solid feeling phone
  • Much better loud speaker
  • HTC already upgrade from 2.1 Eclair to 2.2 Froyo smoothly
  • HTC Sense adds a light smooth interface on top of Android which is intuitive

Zain Settings:

  • Go into Mobile Network, Click “APN”, Options “Add New”
  • Name it “PPS”
  • Username “PPS”
  • Password “PPS”

Make sure to save it and Edge/3G worked where ever there was coverage

    Alothman: The galaxy S is a very good phone , however many people expeiranced glitches and restarts. I believ these issues will be cured with the next android update .

    Hi.. How did you get froyo???? I’ve been trying to check my phone for updates for a week now and did not get any updates? can you help? do I need a data line? (using wifi for now). I am an iphone user, switched to android for the sake of customization and learning something new, until now its FUN.

    I’m keen on buying a smartphone – most likely an android phone. Can you really make big savings buying these via shop and ship vs. locally?

    Lovely sleek and smoth phone. The joy of owning one is truncated because the Zain parameter setting have not worked for me so far in my location.I live at asaba, Nigeria.

    Zain Nigeria should tell us why the parameter setting are not working in the HTC desire at this location – ASABA

    I have since found that the problem was a call forwarding incompatibity issue . The parameters are ok. Thanks

    The problem has cropped up again with a particular sim card. All my other sim cards can access and browse but this particular number cannot even after a sim swap. Please Zain, I need an explanation for this discomfort.
