HTC Touch Diamond2

 

HTC's Diamond handset was a favourite here at Pocket-lint with the phone offering plenty at the time it launched. A year later though and the handset was starting to look dated. So can the newly announced HTC Touch Diamond2 not only replace it, but...

Small design, good 5-megapixel camera, push internet and contact tabs could be useful

Fiddly interface, no d-pad for quick navigation, screen is small

There are some niggles as always, however the majority of issues we experienced with the software were down to testing a unit that wasn't sporting the final ROM (release software). That said we've been promised by HTC that glitches we experienced with...

HTC Touch Diamond2

 

The HTC Diamond2 promises to outdo its predecessor in almost every area. Niall finds out if it really does sparkle.

We think the Diamond2 is perhaps the best Windows Mobile-based device that HTC has ever produced. TouchFlo 3D is now at a level where it provides a very fast and easy to use interface for most day-to-day tasks, and the new zoom control makes web...

HTC Diamond2

 

It should be noted that during this review we used the test build of the OS. The Diamond2 is the successor to the incredibly popular HTC Diamond we looked at last year. I wanted to kick things off with the traditional unboxing video. You can also se...

I’ve mentioned in earlier reviews how the HTC TouchFLO 3D system seemed to be just a “cover” which tried to hide the Microsoft Windows Mobile back-end. Now however, HTC have got extremely close to completely pushing the Windows Mobile interface under...

The development of Android OS emulators for smartphones running Windows Mobile has been carried on for a long time. And now, the developers from xda have presented the main result — the HTC Touch Diamond2 running Android 2.0.1 (Eclair). Moreover, there...

HTC Touch Diamond2 review

 

Know Your Cell reviews the follow-up to HTC's all-time best selling smartphone: the HTC Touch Diamond2

Full touchscreen mobile ; Much improved from last model ; microSD card slot

Still gets messy with fingerprints ; Could do with larger megapixel camera

The HTC Touch Diamond2 is a good overall improvement on the last model, with a much better screen size, better integration of UI with Windows Mobile and the added bonuses of new features.

HTC Touch Diamond 2 and HTC Touch Pro 2

 

Both smartphones are based on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS and have TouchFLO 3D newest UI over it.

HTC Touch Diamond 2 Review

 

Just look at that screen. The HTC Touch Diamond 2 packs a gigantic 3.2 inch display that's bright, crisp and finger-friendly. Running underneath its own swanky software is Windows Mobile 6.1, and there's plenty of depth to the built-in software.

Massive screen, quality camera, TouchFlo interface

Windows' fiddly buttons and insistence on stylus control

A fantastic phone, let down by Windows being inside

HTC Touch Diamond2 Review

 

The Touch Diamond2 is an upgraded version of 2008's fashion-friendly smartphone, the Touch Diamond, and HTC's latest effort to grab the business-meets-consumer phone market…

Excellent internet experience, easy syncing and a new communication history that aggregates texts, emails and calls from a single contact

Music player is a token add-on

The Diamond2 hasn't revolutionised its predecessor, but key features make it a stylish, powerful smartphone.

HTC Touch Diamond2 review

 

The HTC Touch Diamond was a best seller for HTC when it launched a year ago. Now the Diamond2 has been introduced and it's a whole class above the rest.

The HTC Touch Diamond2 is a vast improvement over the original Touch Diamond. The responsive touchscreen puts usability ratings through the roof without the need for the embedded stylus and the People makes it simple to view all communication with a...

HTC Touch Diamond2

 

The Diamond was the HTC's best-selling handset to date, with more than two million units sold worldwide in just six months. Now the company is hoping to repeat the success with the first of its sequel phones, the Diamond2 (the Pro2 shortly follows soon...

Good progress from the original Diamond. Interface is much better than standard Windows Mobile

The phone still gathers messy fingerprints. An 8MP camera wouldn't go amiss
