my personal choice!

''Conclusions

Choosing a phone is never a cut and dry decision for someone else to make on your behalf, but if you have to make a call on these things, then one would say that the iPhone 4 is a better phone than the HTC Desire. It's better shaped, has a better screen, you can fit more on it and, arguably, it looks better too. That doesn't mean that the HTC Desire is some kind of inferior mobile because it's not. It's just different. 90 per cent of the planet would prefer to have an iPhone 4. It will suite their needs better, but there's going to be plenty of folk out there who'd rather have the flexibility, the cheaper price and the higher level of originality that HTC, Sense and Android offer. What you have to ask yourself is which is the one for you.

the battery life on the hd will be poor to say the least, ip4 all day long

Neither. I have a Desire and If I had a choice of phone again it was by the Samsung Galaxy (new version) Iphone is just another IPOD where you get little or no choice, and the Desire is what it is.

I honestly believe that is the only reason. They aren't great phones, they aren't bad phones. They are just viewed by the majority of people as being cool soley for the reason that everyone else thinks anything with an apple logo on it is cool irrespective of whether it is actually any good or not.

Desire. As the Iphones camera is pretty pants, and the flash on the desire is pretty good at the current level I have.

Nothing. Samsung beats any specification of any phone on the current market.

For the photos, possibly the iPhone 4 now they have added HDR to the camera. That is where it takes a normal photo, an over exposed photo and an under exposed photo and combines the 3 into one photo that looks really good. I would imagine the lens on the iPhone 4 is good as the Desire, but do not know for sure.

I would say the iPhone just because of the apps. They may be around 99% rubbish, but when they have a few hundred thousand apps, that is a lot of good ones.

Whoever is saying iPhone, you're wrong
Whoever is saying anything else, you're wrong

It's all purely your own opinion, I love my Desire, but I miss the apps and as a lot of my friends have iPods, the Game Centre is really appealing to me so I'm also thinking about getting an iPhone
While iPhones are labelled as overpriced, they hold their value far far better than any other phones allowing you to sell them on and upgrade for a hugely discounted price.
Of course, the Desire HD will be available on far cheaper price plans, most likely free on £30p/m plans, and if you wait a month chances are that there will be a couple on £25p/m plans on Dialaphone and the likes.
Go into a shop and try out Android.
Go into a shop and try out iOS4
Make a decision
If you still can't, try them both out again, and then make a decision

ipa god coming soon as well on the iphone no more installous

If you fancy a bigger screen go for a dell streak

There are multi-touch problems with the Desire, most likely these are isolated on the single device
The only problem I can see the HD having is battery life. HTC have been pushing out some pretty sturdy phones these last couple of years. Still best off waiting until a couple of weeks into October, after the launch incase there are any.
The iPhone problems have been blown out of proportion, antenna problems only plague a selected percentage of devices and Apple are really good with returns.

I have the HTC Desire and love it, only just got it and was going to wait for the HD version but all the reviews are saying its just too big for a phone.

The differences between the HD and non-HD versions of the desire and not stuff I was particularly bothered about, plus the battery life is supposed to be better on non-HD version and its smaller, so I went for that.

I know your not asking about the non-HD version, but just saying that the reviews of the HD version I have read have all said its too big and hasnt really got amazing reviews (compared to the desire normal which still gets great reviews).

The iPhone is popular for a reason, I was making this descision last week and went for the iPhone, so glad I did, screen is amazing and everything on the phone is very fast, I had a 3G before this and didn't think they could better that, but they have

but isnt the htc desire hd just as fast the iphone 4? with a better camera too??

You can't compare speeds when they are running completely different operating systems. You can benchmark, but that's about it.
They are both fast enough for what they run.

Also, nobody knows what will be in the next iPhone, I'm guessing something along the likes of WiMAX, and therefore Facetime over the service, or a slightly altered design.
