Note! I own Desire for more than two weeks. In my case, battery cannot hold more than two days of heavy usage. I’m talking about GPS, Wi-Fi, Camera plus various applications which I use all the time. If you’re like me, be prepared to charge your battery more often. If you’re happy with SMS, few calls and pictures – you’ll be fine. Of course, you can charge your Desire via USB which is very handy.
