HTC Desire any good?

Wanting to upgrade my Wildfire and have seen the Desire for around 160 on ebay.

Would love an S3 but would it really be worth more than twice the money for low usage.

Use my phone mainly for surfing and texting,currently on SIM only deal so looking to buy an unlocked one,outright.

The wife has HTC desire, I have the desire HD. The HD is better phone technically but neither has great battery life out the box. The HD is still being updated by HTC (ice cream sandwich upgrade coming soon), the original desire hasn't any more official updates.

Camera isn't great on either, better on HD.

However, you can root them and install a custom ROM, this will modernise either and improve battery life. Wife is happy with normal desire...I find it a bit too small as accustomed to the bigger screen.

Other one to look at is Samsung G2...better camera on it.

I have the basic Desire model. As said the camera is poor. I find battery life ok in normal use but net surfing hammers it. Still a good phone overall, just a bit dated. Is 160 for new one? Second hand should be around 70 I would have thought, I checked how much mine was worth.
