GSMArena

HTC Touch Diamond2 is an excellent Windows Mobile phone that will handle whatever you throw at it with ease

With each new phone released running the TouchFLO, HTC manage to sweep some more of Windows Mobile under the rug and replace it with their silky smooth interface. Touch-optimization is at a level where you can almost forget about the stylus.

We guess quite some of the Diamond2 worth is in the more recent and upgraded TouchFLO 3D. Of course it will most likely be retrofitted on the original Diamond by third-party developers, so we're talking competitive edge here, not upgrader's value. Anyway, it's just not Diamond vs. Diamond time yet....

Anyway, it's just not Diamond vs. Diamond time yet.

The way we see it, the Diamond2 is comfortably poised between Diamond and Touch HD, and this blending of bloodlines is its real edge.

Features neat new UI tweaks and double the memory of the previous Touch Diamond

from MobileBurn

The HTC Touch Diamond2 is a really nice device, from the quality feel of the hardware to the slickness of its TouchFLO 3D software. The tweaked UI, upgraded camera, and new scroll bar are all top-notch, as is the additional memory provided to improve the multitasking abilities over the last Touch Diamond.

As an everyday handset it works very well at bringing all the info you need right to your fingertips, without having to delve in and out of various folders and menus to find everything. I'm still not keen on messaging with on-screen keyboards, especially on resistive touchscreens like the Touch Diamond2's, but the typing experience was adequate thanks to the large selection of text entry methods on offer.

Next time it would be nice to see a flash of some sort for the camera, even if it isn't the main function of the phone. A 3.5mm headphone port would also be nice, especially given that the crisp screen begs to be used for watching movies. However, without these things present I can still happily give the Touch Diamond2 a "Highly Recommended" rating, based on its many other strengths....

The Diamond2 is available for pre-order on CleverKit.com for around £390, and is expected to go on sale on contract in May 2009.
