Default Faceoff: iPhone 4, HTC Desire, HTC HD7

"One evening in the week I was talking to a colleague and he was asking which machine I preferred using between the iPhone 4, the Desire and the HD7. At the moment I'm of course using the HD7, but even using that I tend to lose some of my usual functionality. I therefore decided to put together a basic spreadsheet concerning my uses and clock up which device gets the best score. The scoring is generally a '0' for a missing feature, a '1' for a feature that it has, but for some areas where there is a greater difference than a plain yes or no then a score has been allocated."

Well, it's of course quite subjective, but Daron Brewood, CEO of Smartphone Gurus, has developed a matrix that compares three current smartphones: the iPhone 4, the HTC Desire, and the HTC HD7. What makes this a quite an interesting read is that he compares the devices on a variety of different application usage and/or functionality scenarios. For example, he includes the following in his comparison:

  • multiple Exchange accounts
  • RSS Reader
  • spoken term GPS navigation
  • eBook reader
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • notification system
  • quick camera operation
  • speed dials
  • and many more...

Again, these are his opinions, but it gets right at the hear of the user's total experience (see the article on TXI in an earlier post). A little suspense - you'll need to click over to the article to find his conclusion.
