Best HTC phone ?

As title, interested in getting a HTC phone, which is the best and why ? I did look up a few reviews etc. Been reading up about rooting aswell, is this just like jailbreaking an iphone ? Anyone give me a few sentence reviews ? Help would be appreciated.

I've just got my Desire yesterday. Don't you have to re-root (X)) it to allow you to install apps on the card? And isn't this neccessary as there is so little internal ram (rom?) left over?

My first edit has just vanished. How annoying.

The Desire (until the Ace gets here in Oct/Nov). . .

Isn't the Evo supposed to be great? Heard good things about it.

evo isn't coming here unfortunately.

the next wave of big HTC phones should come out winter time... the HD1 and HD2 both came out around november time so maybe HD3 will come out then too??


OP i ended up getting a dell streak it's a 5" tablet phone... i love it!

how you finding the streak? I'm tempted by it but worried it might be just too massive!

I own the HD2, LOVE it!
Comes with Windows but it's recently been hacked to run Android! So best of both worlds!
HUGE screen, 5MP dual LED flash which takes STUNNING photos, and you can get it pretty cheap on contract if you shop around!

android on hd2? interesting stuff...windows mobile was pretty crummy last time i used it (MDA compact!)

I must admit the HD2 handles it very well! Plus with HTC Sense, makes it allot more easy on the eye

Android on the HD2 however runs better than Windows! And the guys over at XDA Dev are still working on perfecting it then making it into a ROM to overwrite windows!

If you want something that can handle both then any HTC will do the job as various older HTC's have already been hacked.

Personally, I'd recommend the HD2 due to the power 1GHz CPU and HUGE 480x800 4.3" screen!

HD2 is a beautiful phone! i used to have the touch HD if the HD2 had flush bottom buttons like the touch hd i would have married it! haha

Think I am going to go with the desire, the htc hd2 just looks a bit bigger, and I couldnt see the dell streak on Orange. Are these easy to unlock does anyone know ?

Good choice! Really nice phone. I have the HTC Legend and love it.

HTC's aren't generally locked (please correct me if I'm wrong). Mine wasn't locked. JUST make you you don't get a branded one! i.e one with the "Orange" logo on it etc.

I am getting it from Orange, from the picture there wasn't any branding, anyone had one from Orange and able to let me know if they are locked/ branded ?
