I was lucky enough to win a HTC Desire in a competition with T-Mobile. That’s right, I won it. I nearly didn’t as the competition rules stated that when T-Mobile rang me I had half an hour in which to respond. They rang twice, I ignored them twice. Luckily I picked my voice mail up and gave them a call. This was on Monday, I had the phone the following day. As part of the competition I had to agree to do a short video review of the phone. Fortunately I had done one or two video reviews before so this wasn’t a problem.
My first thoughts of the phone? It’s quick, sexy and a sure winner. I have noticed one or two oddities about my particular phone:
- No speech to text
- No Android keyboard (just HTC’s Touch version)
- No Voice search
This may be because T-Mobile have customized the ROM or that my phone is a pre-release version and the retail version may rectify these things.
The plus points are:
- Pinch to zoom in browser, images and maps
- Live Wallpapers
- Quick and smooth to use
- Face recognition in camera
- Loads of other things……
This is my review for T-Mobile but I will do a more comprehensive one soon. Enjoy.
UPDATE: T-Mobile contacted me to say that the build I am using is different to the final build so some of the issues here should be rectified with the retail version.
