1. HTC Desire:
Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz processor

2. Apple iPhone 4:
1 GHz Apple A4 processor

Navigation wise, both are equally fast. But for gaming, iPhone 4 is better because HTC Desire has no dedicated graphic engine.


1.HTC Desire:
3.7 inch, AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16 millions color.
480 x 800 pixels.

2.Apple iPhone 4:
3.5 Inch, TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16 millions color and IPS technology.
640 x 960 pixels (Retina display – 4 times clearer than previous generations.)

HTC Desire screen is simply beautiful but iPhone 4’s IPS and Retina Display are far superior to HTC Desire’s AMOLED


1.HTC Desire:
5 Megapixels, LED flash, face detection and auto focus.  (with camera options)
Recording at WVGA (800×480 pixels) for 15fps

2.Apple iPhone 4:
5 Megapixels, LED flash and auto focus.
Recoding at 720p for 30fps.

Clearly, iPhone 4 is far superior in Video Recoding and takes better photo quality. But rumors have it that HTC Desire might be getting 720p recording in future update.


1.HTC Desire:
Android OS 2.1 Eclair (Soon be upgraded to Froyo 2.2 with full flash support and 2x to 4x times speed increment.)
More than 70,000 apps

2.Apple iPhone 4:
iOS4 with multitasking, folder managment and etc.
More than 200,000 apps.

iOS4 is fast, so is Android. If you need freedom (rooting) and widget, Android will be your choice. But iOS4 has more quality games.


HTC desire is definitely one of the best smart phone out there. But iPhone 4 is far superior in term of features and available apps. With Apple’s new gyro sensor, secondary camera, IPS & retina display, noise cancellation, extremely durable battery and A4 processor (used in iPad), HTC Desire is still behind. But of course, HTC Desire is value-for-money compared to iPhone 4 and you got the freedom to root your phone, Google apps integration and interactive widgets. So it is the choice for techno geeks like myself.
