Just got this sucker today. It's very, very good. I am basically blown away, but it is my first smartphone :)
I think the n8 is the way to go. Why can't HCT build something serious?

Paul from the Neths, 27 Oct 2010It's great huh! Please Taz read my instructions to improve battery life a few posts down. I ha... moreWhy buy this phone if you only use it as any normal mobile-phone. The only reason to buy this is to watch videos and surf the web and play games... Desire HD is just as the original Desire unable to keep a stable 3G-connection so if you want to surf the web there are many better phones, not from HTC though, to buy instead of this.
I have a feeling when GSmarena makes a review the disadvantages will be:
1)- Mot AMOLED
3)- The speaker
Still waithing for GSMarena to review this one, i'm very curious what they will say about the DHD.
Hahaha, yeh jus't laugh about it, it's the RollsRoyce under the phones with an Yoko mounted stereo in it hahaha.

Yea, me too. cant believe with such powerful phone it has a very bad speakers....huuuuhhh.
Hope HTC release modified one with such a correction..

I don't know why HTC is putting bad speakers in their phones in this pricerange. The Hello Kitty phone ($50) from my daughter is sounding better, i'm not joking!!

Please Taz read my instructions to improve battery life a few posts down. I have this baby now for 12 days and battery is running 1,5 day (regular user)! So at normal use 2 days must be possible. Yes the internal speaker is a bad thing. You must choose a loud ringing tone, gladly the sound through a connected headphones is very good. Short battery life i can live with that, but a bad sounding built in speaker is a bad thing for a phone like this.
Taz, 27 Oct 2010I have had the phone for 5 days now and my first android phone... Bad bits: - Battery only... moreThat actually isn't really possible because this phone has the best Sound on a mobile device at the moment, It is SRS Surround Sound, theirs noooo way that the 5800 has better sound. And S-LCD is not in competition with AMOLED, it is alot better than normal AMOLED it competes with SUPER AMOLED and it has been reviewed by many large mobile review companies that S-LCD is alot better and more realistic, I totally agree with you about where the sound should be and I also think its big but I kinda like it, the screen size and the thin aluminium. Cool fact, this phone isnt a smartphone it is now officially the Worlds First Superphone
I have had the phone for 5 days now and my first android phone...
- Battery only lasts about a day..although I'm told it should improve after a few discharges and re-charges
- Screen is not as good as AMOLED ....but doesn't bother me
- It's VERY big to use with just one hand...most of the times I use two hands! or put it on a desk/table top and use it.
- the volume rocker should be on the right side of the phone becuse everytime I try to press the power/standby button at the top I end up pressing the volume keys too!
- Sound is not great..in fact my Nokia 5800 was twice as good when it comes to sound!
- photos and vids look great on the big screen!
- Android with the new HTC Sense UI kicks a**!
- Web browsing is awsome and quick!
- love the syncing of everything with my facebook and google account
- Very fast and fluid compared to my poor symbian nokia 5800
