"Great Phone at a great price!"

I was originally going to buy an IPhone but eventually after reading various reviews I decided on the HTC Desire. My mobile provider gave me a good package and I ordered it.

It comes in a good strong box with attractive packaging and everything you need to get going. The phone itself is well made, strong and easy to hold. I have always preferred having a large screen over a keyboard.

I do everything on my phone. It wakes me up in the monrning, it tells me the weather, I listen to music on my cycle to work,. it records how long I take to get to work and how fast on my bike, I play games on it, I keep and control my finances on it. I think I probably do more on my phone than I do on my laptop!

I have had the phone for over a year, without a case and it has not scratched hardly at all. Screen glass is well made, strong and resists finger prints to much.

The one Issue I did have was the charger in that one day I could not charge my phone. I found the connection between the phone and the charger not to be very good but this was sorted with a new charger cable for 99p.
