HTC Desire review

We review the HTC Desire to see if it builds on Android's already solid foundation and has something to entice business users as well as consumers.

The front buttons offer no surprises to anyone used to an Android handset. Home and Menu buttons are accompanied by Back and Search buttons, the latter searching your device and setting up a Google search at the same time.

It might sound complex but it is really very straightforward. Tap out a search term and you are offered on-device finds and Google search terms together in a single listing. As you tap more letters search results narrow until, if it is a Google search you are after, nothing on your device shows up any more and you can do the Google search you need. It's a really user-friendly unified search tool.

In between these buttons is a small optical navigation button very similar to the one that made its debut on the HTC Legend. Some might say such buttons aren't needed if good touch screens are used, but depending on personal preferences it can be very useful. The button is responsive under the pad of a finger or thumb, and it has a press to select feature.
