My Gears – Some Quick Pics on the HTC Touch Diamond – Day 1

Still spending much time trying to get familiar with the Diamond. Took some side-by-side comparison pics for now, review will have to come in a bit later.

From left to right, HTC Touch; the HTC Touch Diamond, the HTC Touch Cruise and the iPhone. Noted the glare off the phone screen, the HTC Touch Diamond still have the best readability from the lightings flare, I assume similar results from outdoors.

From top to bottom, the HTC Touch, the HTC Touch Diamond, the HTC Touch Cruise and the iPhone on the bottom.

HTC Touch Diamond and Cruise on side-to side. Notice the screen a lot more crisp and sharp, tell you what, the VGA screen on the Touch Diamond rocks.

A side pic comparison with the HTC Diamond in front, and the HTC Touch Cruise at the back, the Diamond is so much thinner and sleeker. Pure art.

My Day 1 conclusion, the Touch Cruise is gonna go.

  5. Finally a hands-on with the screen readability. Thank you. If in the sun, I could just as well turn off my Trinity, the screen is so dim.

    If you had or saw a black Trinity: does the shiny finish on the Diamond look similar? Maybe it will peel, just like the Trinity 😦

  6. In the USA this device is extremely laggy.. The touchflow today screen is extremely unresponsive as I have been blogging about this for a few days now. You are welcome to read my review

  8. The lagging GUI wouldn’t be such a problem – disable the Home screen and use PointUI (free, animated Home replacement) or SPB Mobile Shell (great, but shareware). The hardware is there, I can’t imagine how well these GUIs will run.
