HTC Touch Diamond - Got one

I was bored. A friend called, we met up, and I ended up getting an HTC Diamond for myself. I have actually been waiting for the SE Xperia X1.

The HTC Touch Pro had me confused, and I was wondering which one of them (Xperia or the Touch Pro) should be my next phone. But, I ended up today with the Touch Diamond (not as pricy as I had thought it would be, given that it hasn't been out for that long in Kuwait).

Impulse buy.

Not bad.. but... err... well I am just not too happy with it. It looks awesome and all. Actually rather sleek, but just .. ahh.. whatever. who gives a shit.

The stylus has this magnetic bit to it, so you don't have to push it all the way up into the slot. That's definitely cool (but for how long?).

The phone downloaded the set up for Zain (Internet Settings) on it's own. Just had to tweak it a bit (Username and Password). Seems to be working fine. No issues there.

Oh, btw, Just out of curiosity, I did try to use the Auto-Settings thing on the Zain website. Just wanted to confirm if they had the Auto-Settings for the Touch Diamond. Obviously, they don't. The message does show up, but just doesn't work.  

The Touch flo thing too seems to work great.. time pass. but then, that will be cool for like a day or two, and then old news.

I do think the phone heats up a bit too much, but then again I am not sure if this should be considered normal for the HTC. More on that later (if I haven't chucked it out by then).

I haven't been able to get the Wi-fi to connect yet. Just doesn't seem to hook up with my 3com router. Perhaps something to do with the settings, Will fiddle with it later. Had a similar problem with my Sony Ericsson P1i, intially. Don't seem to remember how I sorted it out.  

To be honest, I really couldn't care less. It's not like I hate the phone (not yet, anyways).

UPDATE: Got the WiFi working. Obviously nothing wrong with the phone, just needed to tweak the settings a bit.

Mabrook..good phone...I fancied the looks form the idea on performance

The looks, definitely.

Of course.. gets dirty rather quickly.. finger print magnet.

Performance.. not too bad actually.. but I am kind of a bit to used to the SE's P Series.

This might take some time. OR.. I might just lose my patience and get ridd of it..

may be not.. or may be I will..

arrrgghhh.. decisions decisions.

Ah! If you decide to give it off at a throw away price !!!! let me know.....

L o r d R a j said...

Well I paid 230 for it...

Unknown said...

Holy cows !!!!!!!!!!!! And you don't seem happy about it...

L o r d R a j said...

Well, it's cheaper than what I thought it would be.

Hell, I am the idiot who paid 350 for a p990.. just so that I could be the first one to have it.

but.. err... this one.. I don't know re..

it's like.. It's not too bad.. perhaps just need to get the hang of it. don't know.

L o r d R a j said...

Just... disappointed with it.

I somehow imagined it to be better.

Well another lesson for me.

earlier lessons - don't expect anything from people.
Next lesson - don't expect too much from movies.
And now - don't expect too much from a new cell phone.
