HTC Legend vs. HTC Desire

Two very new Android devices from HTC are competing to grab our attention — the HTC Legend and the HTC Desire, both priced quietly close to each other.

The HTC Legend sports a solid and sturdy aluminum unibody design in a nice silver-black color tone while the HTC Desire has a bigger screen and more powerful processor.

Here’s a comparison chart to give you a better picture of the two, spec-for-spec:

I think, the bottom line is, it will be the price that will draw the line between the two. The HTC Legend might look better than the HTC Desire but with merely Php3,400 in price difference, people will find it hard to pick the former over the latter.

    The Legend does have a 3.5mm jack. I even use my shuffle earphones with it whenever I watch movies on the phone.

    I got the HTC legend for around 23k+ here in cebu yesterday at a local mall. Its fast and snappy…problem ko lang is the battery drain…it barely lasted for around 12 hours lang and I didn’t even get to call anybody yet, just text and and downloading a few apps over wifi for short bursts.

    I googled a bit and there was a site that claimed it takes around a week for the batteries to “stabilize” I turned off a few power hungry apps that would sync on its own and its helping a little. Are there any batteries for sale for the HTC legend that would last me longer?
