HTC Desire is a more gorgeous version of the famed Nexus One and the most powerful Android mobile phone from HTC till date. The specifications of the HTC Desire are comparable to the Nexus. The innovative part of the HTC Desire is the wall charger, headphones, the USB cable and the 4GB microSD card. This gives you more place for any multimedia files.
It is no doubt the most attractive and the best made handset among the Android phones. However, the body does not consist of a single piece of aluminum and hence does not provide that solid or sturdy feel. The framing around the screen is the only metal part whereas the back is completely plastic and the battery is covered with a rubber material which gives some cohesion for the grip. The panel is a little tough to remove and one needs to remove the battery to get at the SIM and the microSD.
The dimensions of the HTC Desire are neither too big nor too small but it feels a little enormous to hold but the design is definitely slim and not bulging. The display screen is 3.7 inch with the AMOLED technology and hence the pictures are vivid and clear but in direct sunlight it is a little difficult to see. The touch sensitivity is excellent and it supports multi-touch. The design of the HTC Desire is good as the body is made of metal.
The HTC Desire has a WVGA touchscreen display and the resolution is 480×800 pixels with a 1 GHz processor and 768 MB of RAM with 1.5G internal storage. The HTC Desire camera is of 8 megapixels and is fully equipped with dual LED flash, built-in face detection software, auto-focus and a wide range of special effects which can be added to the photos such as depth of field, distortion and vignette in order to produce some interesting photos. The camera also has geo-tagging and can record video in 720p.
It has connectivity such as 3G/GPRS/EDGE and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. Additionally, there is a standard microUSB port with a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top part and also a digital compass, C-sensor, an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor. The battery is 1230mAh and gives a talk time of 320 minutes on 3G and a standby of 490 hours. The HTC Desire is Android 2.2 and Sense UI which is really amazing. The HTC Desire is a great Android Smartphone and the User Interface makes it a greater pleasure to use.
