Like most HTC Android Phones, the HTC Desire ships with the HTC Sense UI, which has been highly praised by critics across the globe. However, due to the Desire' sharing largely the same hardware as the Nexus One, an active developer community has sprung up around it, notably including a dedicated version of CyanogenMod.
