post #1341 of 3671
When I bought my phone I did a ton of research. I had the choice between a Milestone running 2.1 and at the time little hope of ever getting a custom rom, a Galaxy S Fascinate running 2.1 with it's ugly pentile matrix and vague promises of 2.2, or a Desire running a bloated 2.1 and Sense that I could (and did) upgrade to AOSP 2.2 as soon as I got home.

I'm now running a 4.0.3 on my Desire with full HW acceleration.

I think I made the right choice.


Also Sense isn't slow. Its big, but its not slow. Sense on Eclair was slow, and was usable on Froyo, but Sense 3.5 on Gingerbread is as buttery smooth as any rom out there.

1. it was an exaggeration/joke

2. Since i use the "Phone" function maybe 1/50 times I wake my phone, I really don't think it needs to take up so much real-estate. I think most people have phone habits similar to mine now a days.

And that's why the bootloader on every Droid from the original to the Droid 4 is locked? Its even worse on the international version, the Milestone. It hasn't even been properly unlocked yet.

And you forget that the US isn't the world. The Droid released on one carrier, and the Milestone wasn't remotely popular thanks to it's encrypted bootloader chicanery. Compare that with the Desire which is available in over a dozen countries on over a dozen carriers reaching a potential audience that more than triples the population of the US. Oh and that's not even counting the Nexus One, which as we all know is available SIM unlocked on nearly every carrier in the world.

Need more? The Droid/Milestone dev community on XDA has posted a combined 306 threads in the development section. The Desire alone more than doubles that at 795, with another 533 from the Nexus One. The only phones that can top that are the Galaxy S lineup.

http://droidforums.net

There's your Droid dev community. I think we got you beat. That forum is for all Droid branded phones, but don't worry, 90% of the dev threads are for the OG.

What I'm saying is the Droid IS basically a Nexus. Motorola worked with Google to build it. It's completely vanilla Android and it was THE launch product of android 2.0. T-Mobile G1 was Android 1.0, Droid was Android 2.0, N1 was 2.2, NS was 2.3, Moto Xoom was 3.0, GNex was 4.0. ALL developer devices.

But actually the highest selling Android phone of all time (single phone, not slightly different Samsung models everywhere) is the Thunderbolt. Unfortunately we don't have Desire sales numbers, but I've never even seen one IRL, so i don't think they sold THAT well.

I sure see plenty of Droids and Galaxy Ss.

Clearly you think the Desire is the onle and only best device ever though. Whatever you say smile.gif

One thing I can tell you is that the Desire sold massively well in Europe(and still does over here in Belgium where all phones are sold unlocked). I know a fair amount of people who have one and all of them are very happy with it. I had one myself (which I sold to my sister when I got my Xperia Arc). I used to flash 3-4 different ROMs on that phone each week just to try them out.
There's no doubt in my mind the Desire was one of the best phones (if not the best phone) of 2010. I rank it higher than the Samsung Galaxy S (which has a stunning screen) because of 2 reasons: The Desire has an LED flash for the camera and it did not try to copy the iPhone's design which the SGS clearly did do.
