This cell phone receives 4/5 and a Recommended product rating from TBreak. It's well made and offers a good camera and decent performance, but the screen is not the best and the battery life is a little lacking.
"Arguably, the HTC Desire and Google Nexus One were the two best Android handsets of last year. HTC made both of them- one for themselves and one for Google. These handsets became so popular that HTC decided to turn the Desire into a family by launching two additional handsets end of last year- the Desire HD and the Desire Z. Neither of these these handsets had the form factor that made the original Desire such a successful product so HTC went back to the drawing board and at MWC 2011, revealed the Desire S-a true follow up to the original Desire and one that we have for review today."
