    Default Google Nexus One or HTC Desire ?

    got bored of my N5800 and thinking of buying a new Android phone .

    nexus & desire are pretty almost the same if i've not mistaken.
    but i dont think Nexus One is selling in my country(malaysia) yet
    but i still can get it from other places tho .

    but now the question is which i should buy ?

    Personally I preffer the Nexus One for 3 things:
    -The trackball LEDs for missed calls and missed SMS vs a very small LED on Desire
    -The Look!
    -Rooting freedom

    Both are great phones, but if Nexus One is not officially available in your country, then you will spend less money getting Desire.

    I would prefer Desire, because it is cheaper (in Holland) and has the fantastic HTC Sense UI.
    In addition, as far as I know, Nexus One doesn't have FM radio...

    If I was you, I'll buy the Desire.
    The HTC Sense UI is very nice looking.
    Has just a bit more RAM.

    HTC Desire:
    RAM 576 MB
    ROM 512 MB
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 MHz

    Nexus One:
    512 MB Flash
    512 MB RAM
    Qualcomm QSD 8250 1 GHz

    And over all, I think that HTC Desire is the better one.

    I would definately go for htc desire the most powerful android phone.

    64mb more ram,
    physical trackball,
    sleek look,
    AMOLED screen,

    Many fixed issues which n1 has.

    Desire is an advanced and updated and improved version of N1.

    Actually the Snapdragon chipset is clocked at 998Mhz but Qualcomm just says it clocks in at 1ghz not so much difference, still.

    Nexus one:
    + OTA should be comming more frequently hence the google branding.
    + Many Custom ROMs. Including Sense ROM
    - No FM-radio (although it might come with later ROMs or by porting it from Desire)


    well, and for the Desire the only thing more compelling about it I think is the HTC Sense with all it's beauty and functionallity

    The Desire doesn't have physical trackball, it's an optical one and it doesn't give notification LED like on the N1.
    The desire doesn't fix problems from the N1, it has the same one which is the bad battery management.
    Desire is not more powerfull, it's the same CPU and on the N1 you can overclock it thanks to several kernels

    If the N1 is at the same price or cheaper than Desire buy it with no regrets!
    The fact that it's Rootable is a huge advantage...changing software whenever you want
    I mean in no time we will have the choice between N1,X10 and Desire ROMs to play with on nexus one while Desire is blocked to its own software

    I read somewhere that HTC Desire is also "rootable", but need to check that.
    In addition, HTC has hinted they are going to bring an update to enable voice recognition on Desire.
    Some reviewers also say that Sense UI has been optimized to enable better battery management. If I look in the specs at GSMArena, then I see:
    HTC Desire - Stand-by Up to 340 h (2G) / Up to 360 h (3G)
    Nexus One - Stand-by Up to 290 h (2G) / Up to 250 h (3G)
