Review: HTC Desire for Virgin Mobile
For $200, there's no better device in Virgin Mobile's current lineup of Android smartphones. For a mid-range device, the HTC Desire is a solid performer that outclasses its competition.
The hardware is well built, looks good, and functions well. The screen might not be HD, but it still impresses. Phone calls sound good and battery life is decent. It's a pity the Desire is somewhat hamstrung by Virgin/Sprint's slower data network.
The Sense user interface offers an alternate take on Android that has its own pros and cons. I find it to be a bit of a hassle to manage home screen content and the main app menu, but the tradeoff is excellent camera software and a flexible lockscreen. Toss in the Desire's excellent camera performance and multimedia powers and you have a great little phone.
