I’ve been using my HTC Diamond for 3 months.
I’ve persisted with the touch screen, I’ve researched speed issues, I’ve trauled forums, I’ve edited settings and I’m still unhappy.
I’m fed-up with having to restart my HTC Diamond to get the menus to work, or having to switch the power on and off (the small black button at the top of the handset) to kick start the thing into reposnding.
I spent 2 hours yesterday trying to figure out why Gmail won’t send emails, but will receive them (you have to actually delete the Gmail account and start again).
I hate the way Windows 6 Mobile pokes its ugly head through the HTC Diamond’s (redeeming) slick look and feel.
The browser is not good. This dissappoints me as I’m a desktop Opera user. it’s not clear when you’ve tapped a link, nor is it clear when something is happening – or how long it will take for a page to load – the green loading bar doesn’t work for me.
Screen gestures just aren’t clever enough, I end up tapping when I mean to scroll and vise versa. I don’t know how Apple do it, but gestures are practically flawless on my iPod Touch.
The Accelerometer, when used with the browser, is sluggish and jumpy.
The battery life is abismal – but this isn’t out of the ordinary for a device such as this.
I could go on, but this is turning into a rant …
