Awesome phone - been using this from more than three and a half years..

Do I say more? I have been using the phone since I bought it in June 2011. It is my first Android phone and I've loved it. I still have great pics from it and I continue to use it without any issues.

A really good phone, shouldn't have been discontinued

I am using this phone for the past three years and there are very minimal issues (and most are Android OS issues). It is very sturdy. The best feature is the camera, I have clicked some very amazing pictures which were more than comparable to any DSLR and definitely better than any point-n-shoot cam… (View complete review)

What a Sexy Device! Mind-blowing performance!!

I have been using this device extensively for the last 7 days & here's my impression so far ....

a) Camera - Just superb!! Awesome quality pictures & the best thing is it takes photos instantly without any time-delay whatsoever. Also when I zoom in on objects in the photo it does not get grainy. I really love the camera plus the stock effects & options go beyond expectations.

b) Sound Quality - Supplied ear-phone's output quality is rocking but it's not in-ear (disappointed about that) and it's too big for ears. SRS works magic added to that there is superb EQ on the stock mu…

The best phone

its the best phone i have used...and mind you i have used samsung galaxy, blackberry curve, sony ericsson etc.

i ordered it on 02.10.2011 and receievd on 04.10.2011.The phone is sleek with metallic design and all black look..looks so beautiful and feels so good in hand or just lying before you.

i am in love with this phone. The HTC sense is nice as well the android version. The phone is fast, screen enough big and easy to pocket. The 3.7" screen size is optimum as you can't carry 4.0 " or 4.3" in your pocket in relaxed manner. i have seen a full hindi movie on it without any…

Not worth it.

So most cell phone buyers will be happy with their phones for the first couple of months which is not surprising as all most all phones will work exactly as advertised initially. Its only in the long haul do you realize how durable the product actually is.

In my case unfortunately this product falls short. The phone developed audio related issues within a year of its purchase so I was able to repair it within the warranty period. It took almost 3 weeks for them to return my phone and by then the warranty expired. After a few days of usage the touch screen stopped responding and as a …

my hunt ends

finally i ordered this beast . after i had a tough competition between the galaxy s plus and desire s i made a decision that desire s good since it has pocketable size , good looking , 768 mb ram 1 ghz processor and everything it does with led flash but s plus lags and it has some extra ordinary like super amoled but amoled and s lcd does not make a big difference but camera with led and without flash makes but difference also the ram 768 and 512 mb ram ,now i am satisfied i have made a excellent decision and i am eagerly waiting for it

THE BEST in this price Range

Guys, I think we must buy a phone based on our priorities of functionalities required. I am going to compare Desire S, Galaxy S, Incredible S, Xperia Neo, and big daddys like Galaxy S2, Sensation and Iphone 4. As per my experience, I have come across all of these. I'll give points to these all out of 100 on specific functionality/parts.

1) Display Quality: No one beats Iphone 4 when it comes to display quality. It's LED backlit and contrast is the best ever i've seen. I give it 97/100. Next comes Galaxy S2 and it deserves a classic 96/100 with Super AMOLED Plus display but gets beaten…

HTC Desire S - Sucks - Keeps crashing and Hanging.

I bought HTC Desire S couple of months ago - It had everything I wanted - nice black phone with just the pocket size i wanted.

Like any other regular phone user - I relied a lot on emails and messages. For the first weeks it worked really well. but after few weeks it started behaving badly - crashes everytime I take a call - cant reject any calls.

The HTC Object we DesireSSS

I have been using this now for over 3months and i simply love this phone. It has become our preciousss :)
Strangely it is quite sturdy for a smartphone and has survived a drop from me very well :P
Feature packed and performance to the boot this is a very good value for money phone in the higher end of smart phones.

I would like to give it a 4.5star rating but since its not there i am giving four just for a few minor cons like low ringer volume and average camera. But otherwise its a Super smartphone

The HTC DESIRE S: Worth a Buy!!

Ok, so its been almost a month since I've purchased the HTC Desire S from Flipkart and have been using it. So below is my take on this masterpiece..
Looks: Sleek, elegant.. Its anytime better than Blackberry or any other high-end phones.
Honestly its better than the iPhone as well!!
Primary/ Secondary Camera: The primary camera is fantastic. Doesnt seem like a 5 MP camera. The clarity is phenomenal..
it also has featurs such as auto focus and face detection which ads a great level of fun to image capturing..

Battery: The battery life is better than what its been said …

im quite satisfied with desire s works great...worth buying doesnt trouble you with hanging and all...loads quickly...the "RESTART" option speeds it up after multiple applications' is awesome...HD recording enables u a better experience...the navigation and locations are accurate to street level(licences are to be bought)...all android market applications work really very small problem(can be ignored) is it takes about 5-6 mins to load after restarting the phone...on the whole its a very good phone u can hang up with...worth for Rs.20,000/-...go for it…
