New is the 4GB internal memory and a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus. In addition, the HTC offers a large touchscreen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS and HSDPA for quick Internet scrolling.

HTC Touch Diamond review

HTC Touch Diamond digital camera
HTC has equipped the Diamond with a 3.2 megapixel digital camera with auto focus. This is reasonable as far as specifications are concerned, and definitely when comparing it with previous HTC models. However, you'd expect more from a device in this time and age. Every renowned manufacturer who wants to integrate serious mobile photography should add a camera with a minimum of 5 megapixels, in order not to make to make a fool of himself. The forecast is an 8 megapixel model crossing the counter by the end of this year.

LetsGoMobile adds: "Activating the camera application is possible through the menu or through the quick access button at the photo viewer in the TouchFLO. This way it is not possible to start shooting immediately, also due to the somewhat slow start-up time of the application. When the camera application is started, the screen fully serves as viewfinder. This is extremely pleasant, since it offers a clear view of what you are capturing. The viewfinder does not refresh that quickly as a result of which you will see annoying stripes on the screen when making a small movement. Upon taking a picture, the phone is slow in focussing and it also takes some time before the picture is actually captured. Even if you move the phone slightly after focussing, it still results in a blurred picture, very awkward!"

LetsGoMobile concludes: "The HTC Touch Diamond P3700 clearly shows that HTC have gone in a different direction. Design and user's ease are key words to describe the HTC Diamond. The HTC Diamond has 4GB of internal memory at its disposal which cannot be enhanced. This is quite reasonable looking at the current comparable devices, although 8GB would have been a real plus. Internet through HSDPA or WiFi, combined with the Internet Explorer Web browser is perfect on this mobile phone; it's fast and easy. The preinstalled Mobile version of Microsoft Office enhances the user's possibilities in a positive way. Also because editing Office documents is enabled, thus optimising the business availability."
