Sprint HTC Touch Diamond Review

Article Index:   

First things first: let’s take a general look at the hardware behind this phone. The Touch Diamond is thinner than many Windows Mobile phones, in part because it doesn’t have a hardware keyboard. It’s also narrower than some phones. A smaller size doesn’t mean this phone is lacking in terms of power, however.

Here’s how HTC describes this phone:

The HTC Touch Diamond gives you one-touch access to every aspect of your life and the important people in it with an intuitive 3D interface. The HTC Touch Diamond also places the power of the Internet at your fingertip with an unequaled Web-browsing experience. And all of these dynamic features and powerful capabilities are contained in a small and stylish form. You’ll be amazed when you see how touch can feel with the HTC Touch Diamond.

 yeah i know what you mean i have the diamond right now and overall its a sweet phone, when sprint got ahold of it they made a lot of changes. they took off the front camera because sprint does not offer video calling on there network, and they redid the back to make the battery bigger, which is still tiny.

the good: awesome autofocus camera, youtube has high quality, and the g axis is very useful

the bad: the 4 gigs of internal memory doesnt carry you that far if you love pics or music, easily filled in like a week. a lot of programs have to come off the main memory and there is no msd slot :(, also the qwerty is small but not horrible, there are a lot of other sip boards that are still useable.

i know how u feel i am getting the pro today and i cant wait :)

it does the job, i really don't understand what is the whole big deal of comparing every-phone to the I-phone? i guess if you guys could forgive my ignorance in this matter but i really don't get it. My wife has that 3G I-phone and I have a blackberry and is not that different!
