    I phone vs Htc diamond

    I am hoping someone can help me. I am currently on the t mobile network and pay about £25 a month for £180 worth of calls a month. I am thinking of getting a new phone which will act as a PDA,satnav and simple games to play on the train while travelling. I also want the phone to be a touch screen. Does anyone know the best phone and/or network to get. I do not mind changing networks as my contract is nearing its end.The 2 phones above are the ones I am seriously considering even if I have to buy them offline unlocked

    Get tge nokia 5800 its well good

    i have the xda ignito (touch diamond) and i love it

    first ever smartphone and it's great - so many features and, unlike the iphone, you can do loads of things at once, such as text, send an email, read rss feeds, listen to bluetoothed music, surf the net - leave the applications open and just switch between them as you like.

    You can rule out the iPhone from your "wants". It can't run TomTom - and its inbuilt GPS is pretty poor anyway.

    However, if you like the styling of the iPhone - get the HTC Touch HD. That does it all (as the Diamond will) but with a much bigger screen.

    get the samsung omnia.
    all of htc's offerings plus a fantastic camera!
    i run igo on it no problems. its the dogs proverbials in my opinion

    touch hd has 5.0 MP autofocus too plus bigger screen and better interface with the touch flo

    htc cameras arent great because they have no flash.
    thats what made me offload my diamond before the omnia.
    i must admit though that the htc diamond has a better screen than the omnia (probably touch hd does too) but i think the omnias a better all rounder.
    it lasts for two days of light to moderate use too.... the htc diamond only used to last me most (NOT ALL) of one day.

    I turned the camera brightness down to capture the smoke of the burning building during the day (chancery lane):

    oh btw my battery lasts about 3 to almost 4 days with quite a bit of use and over a week with light use

    on my touch diamond the battery lastst between one and two days of fairly heavy use - the trick is, after you use the phone, tap the off button to turn the screen off - saves a stack of battery power as the screen, being such a high resolution, takes a lot of juice.

    i was really p'd off with lack of battery strength until i figured this out.

    i love my diamond!!

    I got a diamond touch the other day and love it.

    Just need to have a look for some good apps later to see what it can really do

    i have a touch diamond

    i've put a "dirty paper" theme on from zuton i think, which is very nice

    i also have bluetooth audio (bt audio) which diverts sound output (podcasts and stuff) to your bluetooth headset - great in my line of work - people think i'm working real hard and i'm just in reality listening to mark kermode or something!

    i also have a program (sensorlock) which locks or unlocks the phone by you turning it 360 deg in your hand

    I'm in a similar situation to the OP. I think I'm going to wait until summer though because there are at least 3 phones that are coming.
