I upgraded from the HTC desire. I was looking for a phone that did everything the Desire could do, but with a better camera. I think I have got what I was looking for. The phone has a great screen. It is large and the graphics are clear. I am impressed with the camera. I haven't printed off any images yet, but the colour on the screen is amazing, very clear and bright. The battery seems to last well. Even with using it lots in the first few days, it had not ran down by the evening. I do tend to charge it each night now, as I did with the Desire, because otherwise it runs out halfway through the second day. I was choosing between the XL and XE and think I made the right choice, this is a larger phone (and therefore screen) than the Desire, but I think the XL would have just been too big to be a handheld device. I love how the HTC screens can be personalised, with more than just icons. I have a clock, calendar/agenda and to do list on my front screen, as well as shortcuts to my messages, mail, internet and camera. I then still have 6 other screens, to put notes, facebook and various other apps and widgets. The only problem I have had with the phone is that is has randomly restarted itself three or four times in the ten days since I have had it.
