    Agreed. I'd wait for the new HTC phones to come out rather than get a Desire.

    the desire HD isnt really that much better anyway, the main problems with it are still present, unless they come with a much better battery.

    The Galaxy is a better phone technically, although build isnt as good and considering you will have it the next 2 years, that may be an issue.

    I think a rooted, cheaper desire is the best option and use the spare 100 quid to buy a big SD card and a few pint.

    hello everyone


    thanks for all your comments, initially my upgrade was up 4 months ago and i heard about the HD so i left it till now and not really in rush.

    cheers stevo25 will ask if they can chuck that in, i think is needed for those types of handsets

    at the time i was offered sammy and desire for £99, so i wasnt surprised when orange told me they can give me deire for free which is orignally what i wanted.

    i havent seen the sammy or desire yet but judging from the reviews it seems that the sammy is great on paper but has build issues which is no good for me and the desire seems to be more of allrounder with little flaws.

    i,m currently not working as i just fin my degree so money is very tight at the moment, the HD i do want but i,m pretty sure it wont be for free or even be under £200.00 for me.

    i wish orange have some prices on it but they haven't. so i,m more on agreement with 909, what do you all think of the contract and price of it?

    ello all chaps

    been waiting and finally the HD is out and also looked at the Mozart 7.

    i,m still undecided to be honest and looking at this:

    Desire 1 seems to be a winner still, my concerns are the battery with both devices and also the price tag the HD will have which in my approximate will be around the £200 from orange.

    has any desire owners upgraded to the HD yet?

    any opinions on handset and suggestions on phone and solutions are very welcome

    i need a phone sharpish
