 Very Good but could be Improved!!

| | See all Rich1981's reviews (2)

I have been using mine for a few weeks now! I was using an XDA Orbit 2 which is a great phone! I love my Diamond, even though it has some battery issues and can be a bit sluggish on the TouchFlo 3D also no expansion slot but I still love it.

The Screen is amazing, web browsing is fantastic, because the screen is so clear you find you don't have to zoom in as far or not at all sometimes. You can read goggle searches without zooming! when I turn on my Orbit now the screen looks so low resolution its wierd!

The accelorometer also comes in very handy for rotating pages and pictures, there is even a great little game which you use the phone to control a ball.

TouchFlo Looks great, you really don't need to use the stylus at all now, it feel nice sliding along to each tab, the weather tab is cool with animated weather icons and rain that apears on the screen which is then wiped off by a little wiper blade! really nice touch!

It is very fingerprint prone but as long as you put on the provided screen protector there is nothing to worry about, it all wipes clean!

Another cool feature is the light sensor which when the backlight is set to auto, it will automatically dim or brighten depending on the ambient light, hence if its really dark it will dim the backlight so you don't burn your retina's!! and the opposite for bright sunshine!!

The other thing to mention is that the signal strenght doesn't seem to be as good as my Orbit 2, but I haven't had any real issues with that! If you live in a bad area then this could be an issue!

I only give this 4 Stars due to the lack of expandable memory and the fact it only has a 900mah Battery. If these were better it would be 5 Stars from me!!

 Almost perfect - read on

The HTC Touch Diamond is almost perfect, but not quite.
Pros:
It's seriously pretty and the graphics are awsome
The touch screen works well - but it's no iPhone
Ultra high res screen - incredibly sharp images
The Windows 6.1 works brilliantly - I will never go back
The camera quality is as sharp as my old Sony Ericsson K810i - but there's no flash and the autofocus is very slow
It's slim and light
Big internal memory
Great web browser
Useful stylus makes texting easy (and it's magnetic - cool)
Excellent alert system - a ring of white light flashes when anything has happened - missed call, new SMS, new email etc
Amazing tilt game shows off the phones top accelerometer

Cons:

Battery is weak but will easily last a full day until you can charge it
The screen scratches very easily - you must use a protector (supplied)
No flash on the camera
The music player is a bit fiddly - no 3.5mm jack
The phone goes to sleep during calls which can be annoying if using automated phone services
Quite slow at times, when swapping between applications in particular (but hey, it's a weeny mobile, not a 2 gig PC!)

The Touch does most things far better than the iPhone, except the touch screen and the music player, which cannot compare.

If you don't need a mega camera (like the new SE C905 or the N96) and you are not an iPhone junkie, you won't be disappointed.

 Beautiful!!

Top 100 Mobile Reviewer

I have used Orange M600 Windows Mobile 5 phone for two years. Touch Diamond is compact and much better fit to shirt pockets. VGA resolution is impressive and 3.2M pixels auto-focus camera provides good images for my memo purposes. GSM receiption looks better than M600 - It does pick up radio signal in the trains at Monument and Mansion House London Underground stations, where my M600 hardly did. Its 3G supports roaming in Japan for two major providers, DoCoMo and SoftBank. Supplied software CE-Star provides Japanese/Chinese characters and basic input methods which provides me a fair functionality to read emails in these languages while there seem to be better softwares. 4GB and non-expandable storage has been compared with the rivals but it is enough for me. I wish higher-capacity batteries or external USB chargers available in the market soon. I will try to find a good fingerprints wiper to keep it always beautiful!

 Excellent......just the odd flaw

The HTC Touch Diamond is a solid Windows Mobile smartphone. The HTC Touch Flo 3D interface makes using the device far easier than having to rely solely on Windows Mobile.

However, since it's Windows mobile, a couple of soft-resets per day are inevitable. RAM usage steadily increases throughout the day, and performance begins to suffer after heavy usage. The only solution to this is to perform a soft reset. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it's still a little irritation.

It's worth noting that the speed and stability of the device can be drastically improved by installing the latest software onto the device from the official HTC website.

The battery life on the device leaves something to be desired. It'll last for a day or two under light usage (the odd call and text here and there). As soon as you start using WiFi, browsing the internet or using the GPS receiver, the battery can be dead within 4 hours.

Windows Mobile isn't the easiest operating system to use. The Touch Flo 3D interface (as previously stated) increases user-friendliness of the device somewhat, but dropping back to Windows Mobile will be required at some point.

The camera is capable of taking printable photos in good lighting. In anything other than good lighting, the photos are blurred, full of noise, and the shutter lag becomes unbearable. In a dark-ish environment, you can expect up to 10 seconds for the auto-focus to sort itself out.

----

I wouldn't trade this device in for any other out there on the market right now. However, if you're not a fan of technology and want a straight forward device, this isn't the handset for you.

On the other hand, if you want a top-spec handset which does everything you'll ever need, look no further.

To sum up the pros and cons of the device:

Pros:

- Stylish handset
- Impressive user interface
- Good quality camera (in the right lighting conditions)

Cons:

- Poor battery life under heavy usage
- Camera only works in high lighting conditions
- Soft reset required a couple of times per day
