    I'm using the Desire and can't wait for the 2.2 updated. I didn't have a hard time choosing ... or rather having to choose. :P Reason ...

    People around me who harp about iPhones : 95%
    People around me who doesn't harp about iPhones : 5%

    ... and I needed a break.

    imo RAM is more important than processor. My phone has a 800 MHz processor but only a 128MB RAM, lags like hell when I'm multi-tasking. In fact now it's starting to load stuff rather slowly when there's stuff running in the background.

    Both works hand on hand, it also depends on how the OS is programmed to utalise the hardware (kernel layer in short). Also the motherboard design of how the IO works affect the performance. Faster MHZ allows application to run smoother and faster after loaded provided there is enough ram since you are multitasking. It also allows more higher requirement software to appear in the future.

    Some computer knowledge:
    THZ/ GHZ/ MHZ / KHZ.... --> Layman terms, they are the speed of the machine. More techincal terms, they are mostly made up of transistor and they are the speed of how fast the processor compute boolean math in the ALU unit.

    Ok... searched around and found a free app that can read/write Excel files. So one problem solved. I'm now more than 80% leaning towards getting a Desire.

    I will not get a iPhone for the obvious reason that it is overhyped and Steve Job lied about the antenna issue. Lol. Anyway, ppl who own iPhone are kinda making fashion statement that they are there. It is so common that one can see Bangla, maid, Ah Pek, Ah Soh, foreign workers, blah blah blah, having one. To them, it's like telling ppl it so cool to own one but I dare say majority of them are ignorant about what makes the iPhone tick and the OS within. Most of them are just following the crowd.

    I am looking at either the Samsung Galaxy S or the HTC Desire. Both are equally good and can't decide which one. Decision, decision, decision. Argh.................

    At least you are 80% sure of the Desire but I am still stuck at 50-50. Unless somebody can convinced me to get either of it, I will probably toss a coin comes mid July when I renew my contract. LOL

    Open source os gives the smart phone companies more room to develop their phones, and users with so many other options.

    A note to those of you choosing between a Desire or a Galaxy S. The multitouch sensor of the Galaxy S is the newer maxTouch sensor which works ALOT better than the ones found in the Desire. HTC has only begun to use the maxTouch sensor in their EVO 4G I think.

    One of the stuff I would like in a phone is a good keyboard like dext or milestone because I got quite big hand and a good keyboard will be better than a on screen one.

    i dropped it while running. it flew out of my pants.

    on the plus side, (which i hope is a plus), only yhe screen is damaged. lcd still works, only tampered glass shatter. glass can be bought outside cheap

    did you manage to syncronize your HTC Desire to your PC?
    For some reason, mine is unable to sync.

    Wah....heart pain man. I dropped mine twice but lucky this never happen. Maybe the silicon casing I had on it helped. But I guess this is bound to happen with many of this big screen phones.

    Seem very cheap to change the glass. I thought the glass was part of the touchpad technology.
