The Desire, which is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, also has an optical joystick. The fast CPU and large 3.7in. screen inevitably lower the battery life estimates compared to the Legend (despite a bigger 1,400mAh battery): talk time of 400 versus 490 minutes and standby of 340 versus 440 hours.

The Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional-based HD mini is a compact version of the 4.3in.-screen HD2. The 3.2in. HD mini lacks the AMOLED screen of its Android cousins, but supports tethering over Wi-Fi, which the Legend and Desire do not. When you remove the back cover, the bright yellow innards are 'an unexpected surprise' according to HTC.
