HTC TOUCH DIAMOND 2 review (quick review)

HTC TOUCH DIAMOND was launched last year and made great success. HTC listened to each and every demand of the people and have tried to implement them in the next version of the Touch Diamond, THE TOUCH DIAMOND 2.

The Touch Diamond 2 comes with 3.2-inch WVGA display, 5 MP auto-focus camera and improved battery life (over the original HTC DIAMOND).



Gone is the D-Pad and huge send and receive buttons. The send and receive buttons are much smaller. Also, the home key has been replaced by a dedicated windows key. That said, the home key function can be called by pressing the end key, which will take you back to the home screen of TouchFlo 3D.


On the left side of the device, you will find the volume buttons to adjust the volume up/down. On the top resides the power button. Just below the display, you will find the zoom bar, which zooms the text in Opera as-well-as in the other applications.


Camera Quality

As said earlier, the Touch Diamond 2 comes with a 5MP auto-focus camera. For the sake of comparison, the original Touch Diamond came with a 3.2MP camera. We would like to point out that there is still NO flash in the Touch Diamond 2. Here are some pictures taken with the camera of Touch Diamond 2.

Comparison with Touch HD, Touch Diamond and Touch Pro



As we can see, the Touch Diamond (original one) is still the most slim device. However, the Touch Diamond 2 gains some millimeters, but by that HTC was able to fit in a 1100mAh battery.

Does the Touch Diamond2 still have the magnetic stylus like the original Touch Diamond?

Julian April 16, 2009

No, no magnetic stylus in the touch diamond2, you can see this on the videos :)

Don’t know why they left this out, but it seems that the stylus will not fall out of the device so no worry :)

admin April 16, 2009

No. The TOUCH DIAMOND 2 does not have a magnetic stylus unlike TOUCH HD, TOUCH DIAMOND OR PRO

And can you recharge your battery via the usb connection? (instead of the normal charger)

I want to buy a smartphone but i’m doubting between Xperia X1 and Diamond2, the xperia has some more features i like (photo-flash, 3.5mm audio output, keyboard) but I prefer the diamond2 for it’s style :), the on screen keyboard seems working good and I think I will take a bluetooth headset :)
maybe you can make a comparison or something?

admin April 16, 2009

Yes, you can charge via USB connection

Mas April 22, 2009

I love my Touch Diamond 2 way more than my Touch Pro. Never thought I could do without a keyboard, but no worries, especially for chinese input. And the camera is fantastic (the Touch Pro camera was unusable).
