oh ok, would you mind explaining what was bad about it?
I suppose it will just be matter of opinion but i was hoping someone would tell me what the best deal was as well.
Thanks, Repped!

Agreed it will just be a matter of opinion so you may like it, the user interface wasn't nice, i think for the price rang the pulse could be a better buy.

it was a great idea and some great promise it was just poorly implemented.
go the s740 or even better spend a touch more and get an android based HTC handset.

but if you have to pick out of those 2 then id say the diamond looks nicer but i don't know about using it, depends if you'll use the keyboard i guess.

Yeh my brother has the newest HTC out and loves it but they are still very expensive at the moment and as its a gift for someone else dont want to spend a fortune. Thanks, repped.

Hi,

Ive got a Diamond - its a nice phone and texting is pretty good with the on-screen keyboard. Overall no problems and at £100 its a good buy, but the one downside is the battery only lasts about a day which is pretty poor.

The S740 is a smartphone (no touch screen) whereas the Diamond is a Pocket PC (touch screen) and generally there is mroe software and apps available for the latter. If you want this then get the Diamond, the S740 is a great phone but only really worth it if you want the keyboard/are on a budget.

Most of the critiscism against the Diamond by other users (I'm guessing) is as it was hyped as an iPhone competitior/beater and in most ways it isnt. Thats not to say that its a bad phone however, I'm very happy with mine. Any questions give me a shout.

Cheers,

Andy
