    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 the...

    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 ...

    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 s...

    Stopped Working after 36 days!

    All buttons below the screen stopped working.. unable to navigate! Also, the OS hung often..

    Service center ppl told that they gonna replace the screen, etc & it will take 10days!

    Terrible experience after buying a phone worth 22k from Flipkart

    If it had stopped working within the 30day period, i could have got it replaced.

    One of the best UI.

    I am using this phone since a month. It is a nice phone and the best in its class. Here is my review.
    1. User Interface - (9/10) after Update to HTC Sense 3 and Android 2.3.5 give you a 3D home screen and nice user interface.
    2. Performance - (8/10). Great. only thing is while doing multi tasking, it lags a bit and that too depends on heavy applications user at the same time.
    3. Looks and Built quality - (10/10). One of the reasons that I had bought this phone over other smart phones. Very cu...

    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.
