Just signed up for this for the wife. I have had a Desire for nearly 12 months now and it simply an astounding phone. This deal is the best i could find by a long way. Plus Cashback.

Vodafone
300 xnet minutes,
unlimited texts
500 MB internet
12 month contract
£35 a month and 3 months free via redemption.
Also £45 cashback which i've not included in the price above.

Now i know some people do not like redemption contracts but if you keep your shop in order it is easy to get your cashback. I have never had a problem

might be worth mentioning vodafone, no good for me still seems a good deal tho

overpriced cheap chinese crap with rubbish build quality and components. My 4 year old N95 can take 10x better pictures than this '5 Megapixel' camera!

voted hot although personally i think there is a slightly better deal on same site

vodafone 600 mins, unlimited texts and 500mb for £40/month but with 4 months free by redemption.

works out at £26.67 effective monthly price (£320/year) instead of £315/year but twice the minutes.

Quidco is £60, not £45 so total price can be as low as £260 - just £30 more expensive than cheapest payg

nevertheless watch this go freezing cold...

the Fisher price camera i had as a kid 30+ years ago takes better pics than any camera phone!!!


in short, all camera's on mobile phones are **** rubbish.

i dont think the htc phone is just about the camera.....

its meant to be one of the best phones on the market. Personally cant fault the build quality of my HTC Hero.. Not to mention my brothers N95 feels like a piece of plastic.

I've actually got one myself and have found the build quality to be excellent. Sure, there are better camera phones around, but cameras really aren't the main focus of a smartphone and things it does, it does superbly

Are there any other reasons why you feel that the Desire is so inadequate?

Can't believe this is a cold deal! This phone is still the best mobile around according to review sites:

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/20-best-mobile-phones-in-the-world-today-645440?artc_pg=21

Also i don't have a mobile phone to take pictures on. Yes i use the camera but to say the phone is rubbish because of its camera beggars belief

Poor speakerphone quality, poor mic, poor gps - build quality is rubbish compared to my N95 8GB. Its the overall package as a phone.

Thats why Nokia are still around, its not just one particular part of the phone that needs to stand out, its when it come together as a package. Thats why the N95 was so popular, the GPS, build quality (8GB version), speakerphone quality, camera quality were very good. Spekerphone is especially important, if like me you are talking on speakerphone alot - the N95 and 5800 are some of best ones around for voice clarity.

BTW the ONLY thing different between this and other similar android handsets is the software. But other than that you just feel dissapointed - because the phone features are not there.

Well, having previously owned a Nokia 5800, I'd have to agree that the speakerphone is a touch disapointing, but again, for me, it's not too big a deal. I've never experienced any problems with the mic and calls from one Desire to another have never seemed anything but clear to me.

On a component level, the CPU, GPU and touchscreen are vastly superior to anything Nokia have produced so far (though that may, of course, change once they start producing Windows Phone 7 handsets). I've never had an issue with the GPS and it always manages to quickly find enough satellites to lock on to my position. Sure, Nokia's inbuilt navigation software is good, but Google's is fantastic too and could only really be better if it allowed you to store maps on the phone.

The Desire is a fantastic phone for on the move internet. There's a great selection of Apps from the Google Market and HTC's Sense UI is, to my mind the best of all the Android powered phones. It has all the features that I really want from a smartphone, if feels solid, well put together and elegantly designed. In short, it's brilliant.

When, and how frequently have you used one. Did you used to own one or are your observations based purely on briefly using somebody else's?

Unless you have tried ALL camera phones then your statement is just stupid, can you conform that your have tried ALL of them?

Well, I had an N95 8GB, good phone, then upgraded to an N97, what a load of garbage. GPS would not get a lock until a new arena was installed and then was flakey, UI was rubbish as was the keyboard. In short I got sick of being a beta tester for Nokia and am not surprised that they are loosing market share like its going out of fashion.

They got complacent and now they are paying the price, personally don't much care if they go bust after the garbage they have been pushing out over the last few years.
