    Would not recommend this phone
    written by Mark Hoelzel Jr on
    May 10th, 2014

    Overall, I am very disappointed with this device - the screen is too small for most use, the web browser is not very functional, there is no way to calibrate the touch screen (and my screen seems to be about 1/8 inch off both vertically and horizontally, typing is a major problem). Call reception is HORRIBLE - I can't even make phone calls with a signal booster (which I had to purchase from Cellcom, isn't that nice?). MMS messaging is iffy, most messages don't send, but receiving doesn't seem to be an issue. I've broken the screen on this phone 3 times in the last 16 months, the most recent time I haven't even had it replaced, it seems to be more durable this way, since it can't really break any more than it already has. Video streaming is horrible, either via wifi or 3G (since this phone doesn't seem to like 4G networks). There is some kind of battery heat sensor on the back cover that causes me issues once in a while, I have to remove and replace the cover, and the back cover doesn't even fit right anymore. The IR sensor for detecting when the phone is next to your ear doesn't work, and the phone goes black as I'm dialing a number, or the screen stays on when I'm holding it to my head. Overall, I give this phone two stars, since it's still an upgrade from the original HTC desire, but still leaves a lot to be desired. (haha). After over 3 years with Cellcom phones though, I'm starting to doubt that the phone is actually the issue - Cellcom seems to have shoddy coverage, and the device you're using isn't going to change that very much. Oh, and did I mention that with this phone, I can't even call 911 from my garage? This phone won't go into roaming mode, and instead will tell you that you're outside of the coverage area. What if I had a real emergency, and I can't get ahold of 911? That's awesome.

    I went from iPhone 4s to This htc. What a POS. This phone is not very user friendly at all. The signal strength for this phone is very poor!! I would not recommend this one to anybody who doesn't live in the big cities. Htc doesn't even have it on their website anymore. phone will be returned ASAP.

    Very Happy APPLE user!

    When choosing which smartphone to upgrade to from my basic plan, I was torn between the iPhone (trendy,simple) and the Androids. I have Apple products for other electronics and love them but I was ready for a new system to try. I could not be happier with this product! So many features, smooth system/processes and great service all over Wisconsin. Great phone for students to access email, Facebook, and keep organized!

    Great Phone!

    by far the worst phone I have ever had. Going from my galaxy S to this was a downgrade. The menu isnt user friendly everything is overly complicated. If cellcom try to get you to get this phone then they are just trying to con you. Definity returning when get back to green bay

    Dropped the phone after 2 days of having it without a case and the screen shattered. Sent in and got it back 3 weeks later. Got a case and my daughter dropped a week later and it shattered again! I would never get another one.

    Excellent phone

    I've had the Desire 4g since black Friday and have had no problems at all. Almost zero lag switching applications and solid HTC design and interface. Android 4.0 is huge improvement over 2.3 as far as functionality and responsiveness and the 4g data is unbelievably fast. Huge improvement over the Milestone X2, I will never go back to Motorola.

    Fantastic 4g phone!

    I've had the desire since early October. The phone and OS are excellent. I haven't had any issues at all. The excellent graphics quality of the screen is comparable to to iPhone, yet it has all the bells and whistles of Android. Battery lasts two days (typically), but of course depends on how heavily you use it. Plenty of storage space for apps. I tried out 4 phones prior to this one and this one beats them hands down in speed ,stability, screen quality, and battery life. The only thing I wasn't overly impressed with was the Beats Audio-the speakers aren't anything to brag about...they are functional, but the iPhone had much better sound. You definitely won't be disappointed with this phone!

    Got three of the HTC Desire (which is really a rebranded Droid Incredible 4G, if I'm not mistaken) on the Black Friday deal---free. We've been very happy with the device quality, battery life, and 4G coverage in the Fox Valley. I was able to install every app I wanted, with no worries about storage space. The still photos are very high quality. I think it says it has 8mp capability. That's overkill... Haven't toyed with the video capture yet. There is only a very small occasional lag when switching between active apps, and I do mean very small. My one gripe initially was the fact that this doesn't have a physical keyboard. However, I've quickly gotten used to the virtual keyboard. It's legit. I don't hand out great reviews very often, and I've been trying to think of a reason NOT to give this phone a 5-star review. I can't think of one! Would I get this same phone again if mine were lost? Definitely. Props to C-Com for

    BAD Phone

    Phone does not receive calls and will not show missed calls. Don't waste your time or money on this one. Cellcom has tried to fix this but has not proven successful. Getting an iPhone.

    This is a nice phone but very hard to understand manual. Hopeless tofind apps and widgets that worked on my old HTC Desire. People that sell the phone could care less about anything but the sale however if you call cellcom you will get people that are very familiar and always ready to help with a problem.

    awesome htc
