The best thing about the Desire is the huge amount of support from the community, with my Desire currently running a stable ICS ROM as my daily, even after HTC dropped support after Gingerbread.
The AMOLED screen is poor, with greys reproduced with a tone of pink, and odd fuzz noticeable on the edges of lines due to the sub-pixel arrangement. The multi-touch is faulty, with incorrect recognition of finger positions while using two fingers on the display at once.
The battery life is average, only lasting a day with average use, and only lasting a few hours with heavy use.
