Help advice needed... Instinct vs HTC Diamond

Hi all,

I am contemplating a switch from the Instinct to the HTC Diamond.

I am unhappy with the Instinct browser, email and Java compliant issues...

Would the HTC Diamond have the same issues?

Thanks for all the help,

Chris

Unfortunately no one knows the answers to your questions until people start buying and using the Diamond. Who knows. . . . .

No, the Diamond and Touch Pro are Windows Mobile 6.1 and will not have any issues like that. They both come with Opera 4.1 Mini, working keyboard and instant access to an ungodly amount of applications. It's a much better phone, faster processor, more onboard memory, better camera, neater gui and true VGA screen. In other words, it is an Instink killer

Yes, the diamond does have a touch screen keyboard. The keys on the diamond are pretty narrow though. But the keyboard has several modes including predictive text. I've only seen the keyboard in portrait mode, I'm not sure if the keyboard can be switched to landscape mode. Best of all the keyboard on the diamond works with other applications, imagine that. I have ordered the Diamond Touch to replace my Instinct.

I have ordered a Diamond to replace my Instinct.

I will try to post an objective review and comparison for you maybe over the weekend after I have played with it some.

Re: Help advice needed... Instinct vs HTC Diamond

I had to switch to the Diamond also i just couldn't take the constant bugs and lack of updates to Sprint's credit gave me a pretty sweet deal for the Diamond. From what I've seen and read about the Diamond Sprint should have put they're marketing machine behind this as an Iphone killer. It has a lot of the same features the Instinct has plus a WAY better browser. Don't get me wrong though this is Windows Mobile and therefore will probably require a few resets a day but coming from the Touch it's nothing that severe that would sour me on the phone the way the Instinct did.
