I took the plunge this year and upgraded my cell phone to the Android Desire. This phone is getting great reviews and I understand why. It has GPS, touch screen, and email capabilities. This phone packs a full 3.7 inch matrix OLED screen, a 5 mega pixel camera and a 1 GHZ Snapdragon processor, sweet. The touchscreen took some getting used to, but once mastered it’s easy to dial, text or surf the web. Another great feature is you can lock the phone when you place it in your purse. Great feature to keep you from inadvertently dialing someone.
The internet connection is incredible. I also love the fact that you can turn the phone on it’s side and the screen turns for easier texting or dialing. How cool is that? The Desire also has Google navigation, FM Radio, Facebook and Twitter icons. I just downloaded the applications for eBay, my favorite news sites, Photobucket, the Weather Channel TV.com and a host of others. Free ring tones and ring backs are in abundance too.
I’m still the learning the camera features as well as some others, but all in all I’m having a hard time finding anything negative about this phone. If you need support, you can contact the manufacturer, HTC, for service rather than your provider for assistance. There are great on-line forums where you can find assistance as well. Another plus is that you’re not connected at the hip to one particular carrier like the iPhone and AT & T.
I’m glad I took the plunge with this phone. If you’re in the market for a new one, the Android line is worth checking out.
