Apart from the memory limitations I was generally pleased with the HTC Desire & the HTC Sense user interface so I opted for the Desire S. I rejected all the dual processor Android phones as they looked marginal on battery life & might have overheating problems.
As is often the case with a second generation model the upgrade can prove to be excellent performers & in my opinion this is the case with the Desire S. The phone feels noticeably smaller & sits very comfortably in the hand although it has the same size screen as the Desire & after two weeks experience the battery life appears significantly improved. With my style, of usage which is not very intensive that means one could just about get a second day of use without recharging.
The Desire S comes with Android 2.3 pre-installed & this is a noticeable improvement on 2.2 - HTC appear to be struggling currently to shoehorn Android 2.3 onto the Desire whereas the Desire S looks like it has the capacity to accept Android updates for the next couple of years which is probably as long as is require of a current smartphone.
I have now installed all the apps which I had installed on the Desire plus some extra one & still have circa 900MB of phone memory free which should allows bags of space for upgrades & additional apps. Furthermore all the apps are on still the phone memory whereas with the Desire I had to transfer all apps which allow it to the CF card.
Overall I'm very pleased indeed with the Desire S.
That out of the way its a great phone. Prevously had the desire which I loved but this does a better all round job due to some interesting tweaks. Its much quicker than the desire in all operations, browsing is quicker, it multi-tasks better and in general use 2.3.3 is more intuative than 2.2. I like the size, weight and feel, and think it looks aesthetically better than the old desire, and get the feeling that even though a bigger screen would be great it probably ends up being an annoyance when you try get it in your pocket. As an overall product it is really well built...in fact HTC seem to be moving into Apple territory when it comes to quality. One thing about the old desire was it was fairly easy to scratch and damage (particularly the grey painted body) this seems even more robust.
The new OS combined with the hardware build is the main success and the reason for getting it over the old desire. It makes most things effortless and even things that used to annoy like controlling flash video is now possible (for example you can navigate a flash video most of the times, previously it was a random chance you would get it right or just zoom in for example).
Things i am not so keen on are as follows: The loss of physical buttons seems like a good idea but I actually found them easier to live with and have yet to get used to the touch screen main buttons..i'm sure i will but it doesn't feel natural yet. Trying to get used to the move of power in and headphone out socket, sort of annoying if you have car docks and the like and also means cases are harder to find.
Overall really impressed....if you have a desire and wonder if its worth trading up etc then I would say yes. If only because the new OS/hardware combo which is impressive. Some of the physical changes might not suit and the wifi/reception thing is annoying but not insurmountable.
It is great...!! As a slightly older model, the price is better, and for me it does all I need, and a lot more. I've had HTC phones in the past and they've always been well built. This is no exeption, plus it is nice and slim for the shirt pocket. Downloaded apps run smoothly, Android OS is easy to use, screen is super clear, GPS locks fast (although I have seen terrible GPS reception issues for other users with the apparently the same device - I'm guessing a different chipset or OS revision). Promptly delivered and exactly as described.
