    You need two things. The emulator (PSXdroid) and ROMs.

    It's a bit illegal but who cares? :p:

    Can you scroll down in your apps? I would like to see that. Otherwise my ex android phone was a dud.
    I actually dont have the HTC Desire anymore, I have the samsung galaxy S,

    if you look at this clip you can see when the app drawer is clicked, the scrolling of apps is super smooth, and much more swish/modern than the static grid list of the iphone4

    having had both the desire and the galaxy s now, i much prefer the galaxy s.

    much larger 4" screen, despite being a similar size phone to hold

    super amoled screen - the best screen on any phone in the world, images pop out at you, true blacks, no sunlight glare

    faster processor, and most powerful graphics chip on any phone in the world

    front facing camera, much better speaker, better rear facing camera

    thinner.

    The only thing better on the desire is the customised skin out of the box, however you can easily customize the galaxy s so its user interface looks the same as the desire, with the same type of widgets..

    here is my desire and my old iphone4 (which i found was not as good)

    Nope, that can be a deal clincher for some. For me personally, i found the camera on the HTC Desire so awful that i just stopped taking pictures whenever i went out, and even in restaurants using the LED Flash, it made close up shots of faces look haunted lol. With the galaxy s, yes there is no flash, but the camera lense is significantly larger, with a larger low light sensor and a night shot option, that means in dimly lit restaurant shots, a photo actually comes out better on the galaxy s with no flash than a blurry haunted ghost pic of the desire.

    The desire camera is OK in bright outdoor light tho. Its just we live in the UK, which means its rare ha

    I was planning to get the Orange San Francisco - loved the spec it had for its price as well as the fact that it had android OS.
    But I have now found out that Orange stopped making it with an AMOLED screen and now use a WVGA TFT one instead - and judging by reviews of the phone the AMOLED was a real plus point.

    Is is still worth buying the phone (~£120 incl. topup) if it has the TFT screen instead?
    Are there any other close alternatives to the Orange SF? (PAYG or 18month contract)

    Does anybody know if a new orange SF will be coming out soon with a better screen?

    Sense in real terms is just a series of widgets (all of which similar ones are available on the android market), as well as the sense background. There really isnt anything else in terms of every day use, other than some select hidden options within the menus.. of which there are similar hidden select options on samsungs touchwizz UI.

    Ohh.. the only other thing is the HTC keyboard, which again is easily loaded as an app to any phone.

    the only other adition with sense than what is stated above is the facebook matching integration and smart dialer.. both things the samsung galaxy s has too anyway. Infact, i persnonally prefer the samsung UI colours and transitions as the dark theme looks more cleaner, and modern. Sense looks a little toy like and hasnt changed in look from my htc hero. it feels dated in "look" to me.

    My HTC Desire is being delivered tomorrow. :dance:

    I read that you can get FF7 on some Android phones, does it work on the Desire and if so, how would I do it?

    Plus could you recommend me any apps to start off with?

    Thanks
    did you get the £15 a month one?
    if yes, can you give me the website, i might also get a desire.

    Standard price is £99 plus £10 top-up from Orange and various other etailers. You can find it a little cheaper if you look around (check out Hot UK deals).

    I got mine from Orange a few weeks back for £109 minus £12 quidco cashback (and yes it's AMOLED )
