bigglescham1's review of HTC Desire

★★★★☆

“A great phone, I'm really pleased I opted for it...”

Written on: 17/05/2011 by bigglescham1 (2 reviews written)

A great phone, I'm really pleased I opted for it instead of paying a fortune for an iphone.



It's not perfect and there are a few things to be aware of. The loudspeaker is pretty shoddy; it's not particularly loud and distorts a fair bit - not great for using whilst driving (hands free) or for listening to music.



Also, I had a problem which I believe many others have had: overheating. When using memory-sapping features the phone overheated and cut out. This got gradually worse until I couldn't use the sat-nav feature for more than a couple of seconds. This was a major issue as it was one of the main features I wanted.



However, Three customer service is good (despite not always being easy to communicate with due to the foreign call centre) and they arranged for it to be fixed. They sent me a pre-paid jiffy bag and it was done within a couple of days - brilliant stuff. Or so I thought, until I realised the problem hadn't been fixed. In fairness to Three, they had it back again and this time changed the circuit board, which fixed the problem once and for all.



Battery isn't brilliant but that's to be expected on most smart phones really.



Overall, a fantastic phone with a clear screen (though not quite as pin sharp as the iphone 4) and lots of features.
