Desire is excellent.
Some interesting discussion here. To the gentleman who couldn't be bothered researching HTC devices, you really should, it would pay off to find that you could pay £15.00 less per month for almost the same features as an iphone.
I've recently damaged beyond repair my iPhone 3G. What a phone it was, i felt a real sense of loss when I didn't have it.
I thought, hey, iphone 4 sounds good i'll wait. But then as I waited I did some research and found that an HTC phone might be a better route. After playing with a desire i eventually decided to get one.
After a few months of use, heres my thoughts.

Android device has significantly better customization options to the interface and shows greater functionality, takes a bit of playing with but once you know what your doing, you're sorted. Apps are more functional and not so 'look good' games arent great.
Browsing - Fantastic, superfast

iPhone 3G was slower, however this is not the case with iPhone 4. Functionality of home screens, not so great compared to current day droids. Media consumption / Media player = Excellent compared to the android. Applications are functional and look really nice, games are thoroughly enjoyable.
Browsing - Non full screen browsing, not particularly fast. Scrolling is far smoother though, so this is a plus.
Bottom Line. Desire = Cheaper, more functional for every day use, faster to access essential data.
I am going to buy the new iPod touch in a few months as the apps on iOS are superior to those on android.
