The Desire from HTC has a truly striking appearance as it extremely unique because of its large size, needed to accommodate the 3.7 inch touch screen which stands out at the front of the handset.

The HTC Desire shows large similarities to the HTC Google Nexus One because of the large number of similar features. HTC Desire has a smooth touch because of the suede-like coating which delivers a sensation of durability and luxury as well. In terms of general appearance, the main difference between the two smartphones is the mechanical buttons located at the base of the screen, which includes menu, home, search and back buttons, and also an optical trackpad. The trackpad serves as an alternative method of navigating through the menus and options in the HTC Sense UI.

Although the HTC Desire is a relatively large mobile phone it is rather lightweight with its 135 grams. The great thing about it is that every part of the screen is just one thumb away.

The HTC Desire works on the v2.1 Android operating system, identical with the other HTC models, the Legend and Wildfire, and features the well known HTC user interface, Sense, enabling a high level of customization of the handset. The Sense user interface is perfect for daily users, providing a more elegant and customizable user experience as compared to the usual Android UI. The high level of customization is definitely appreciated by both technology fans and advanced users.

It features a social networking application, called FriendStream, which unites Twitter, Facebook and Flicker into one single screen and thus users can see data sorted by friends and time, not according to the source. It is a wonderful App to keep in touch with the family and all of your friends. The UI further includes seven fully customizable homescreens which can be all allocated to a certain app. In order to select one, the screen has to be pinched and the thumbnails of the screens will appear, requiring another tap to open them.

Naturally, the HTC Desire also features a very long list of spec, including Wi-Fi internet access, 5 mega pixel digital camera, a versatile media player and ample internal storage (with further expandable micro SD card slot) for music or data files. The imposing hardware perfectly combines with extremely customizable and yet simple to use software, leading to a very popular and appreciated smartphone. It has all the ingredients to be even more popular on the highly competitive smartphone market. The HTC UI is better and better with very update and users can get this unrivalled technology at a surprisingly affordable rate.
