6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

I have a 6800 with Alltel and have gone through about 7 of them through refurbs or in store replacements. Recently on my 6800 I got a white spot and was going to have them send me a new phone.

What I want to know is if I can get them to give me a different phone which way should I go?

The 6800's ram sucks, and I'm tired of only being able to have 1 program running at a time without bogging down my system..

Which is the best way to go here? Touch Pro or the Diamond? I see they both have the qwerty keyboard. But what are some of the drawbacks of the two?

Re: 6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

Completely different devices. Basically the same interface but different hardware. If you need a hardware keyboard or need more than 4 GB of storage for music, etc, then get the Pro. If size matters most, get the Diamond as it is thinner without the keyboard. Main differences listed below with links to HTC Wiki pages for each device. For me the Pro was an easy choice but lots of people really like the Diamond.

Diamond-no hardware keyboard, no storage card, 4 GB internal storage

Pro-slide out QWERTY keyboard, micro SD slot, 288 MB RAM

Yeah the keyboard is necessary... How fast does your Pro run? For me the 6800 only has 32mb of ram, so if you run Opera it can sometimes lag...

No comparison. I had a Mogul before the Pro. Same problems you're finding. Even with good memory management, it was chunky and slow. With the Pro, no issues at all. I can have multiple apps open and it still runs smoothly.

Yeah... The more and more I read online the more interested I become in the Touch Pro. It appears that the two are the same, just size (Keyboard). Is there an on-screen keyboard with the Pro that is finger friendly?

Re: 6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

I use TouchPal just fine. As far as these phones go, there is some misinformation I will clear up:
1) The Mogul has 64MB of RAM not 32, but still isn't enough.
2) The Diamond and Pro are the same hardware.
3) The Diamond has no SD slot, flash on the camera, or hardware keyboard, but other then that has everything else the Pro does.
4) The only difference is worse battery life.

Re: 6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

Yeah.... After looking over the specs of the Diamond vs. the Pro - The Pro wins. Now I just have to see if Alltel will get me out of the 6800 and into a Pro.

Re: 6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

I have both the Mogul and the Touch Pro. Want to guess which phone I carry daily?

If you guessed the Pro, you'd be wrong.

Been using the Mogul for 18 months now and I have never come across a device that has proven to be an IT swiss army knife like this phone. Data and networking features galore, GPS, customizable like crazy. The navigational controls are fantastic, and all those programmable softkeys are icing on the cake. It's even a flashlight! I love this phone!

I will admit I haven't given the Touch Pro a fair chance yet. I was soured on touch flow by a custom Mogul rom that didn't really perform well. Along that line, I turned it off on the TP and the phone was such a pain to navigate & use that I just turned the handset off and activated a refurb Mogul that it was meant to replace. It might be I just need to find the right custom rom for the TP to make me love it. I am keeping my eyes open looking - but for now, I am sticking with the Mogul.

Re: 6800 vs Touch Pro vs Touch Diamond?

Really? Cause I flashed my phone to a Touch rom... The only prob is, is that it can't handle tfl3d. It constantly freezes or boggs it way down. So I reflashed back to the stock 6.1 rom for now and just use the home customizer.
