HTC Desire - A Great Smartphone Alternative
by: Chris westley

One of the first things to strike you about the HTC Desire is its appearance. It is a phone which is very distinctive thanks to its large size which is necessary to house the large 3.7 inch touchscreen which dominates the front of the phone.

The HTC Desire could be considered as a twin device to the HTC Google Nexus One, which has a number of features which appear similar. The finish of the HTC Desire is smooth to the touch thanks to its almost suede like coating. This gives it a feel of both luxury and durability. Appearance wise, the major difference between the Desire and the Nexus One is the mechanical buttons at the base of the screen. These include home, menu, back and search buttons as well as an optical trackpad. The latter offers an alternative method of navigating options and menus in the HTC Sense UI.

Weighing in at 135 grams, the HTC Desire is relatively lightweight, and although it is a large phone, all parts of the screen can easily be reached with your thumb.

The operating system of choice is v2.1 Android, which is the same as its sister HTC handsets the Wildfire and Legend, and similarly sports HTC’s custom user interface called Sense, which gives the phone high levels of customisation. This user interface is great for casual everyday users and offers a more stylish and customisable experience than the standard Android UI, whilst providing a level of customisation which advanced users and technology enthusiasts are sure to appreciate.

FriendStream is an App which combines FaceBook, Twitter and Flickr into a single screen, allowing users to view data sorted by friends rather than by the source. This is a great way of keeping in touch and up to date with friends and family. The UI also features seven customisable homescreens which can be assigned to a particular app. To choose one, users simply have to pinch the screen which displays thumbnails of the screens, and only requires a single further tap to open them.

Of course the HTC Desire also boasts a seemingly endless spec list which offers features such as a 5MP video camera, Wi-Fi internet access, and a versatile media player with plenty of internal storage (including expandable micro SD storage) for data such as music tracks. It is the combination of impressive hardware and highly customisable yet easy to use software which makes the HTC Desire one of the most popular smartphones on the market today and it looks set to become increasingly popular. This is because the HTC Sense UI is constantly improving and evolving with every update, and users can get their hands on all this technology for a surprisingly low price.
