btw.. how often do you use the front camera? Be more practical! I know how shitty it is with my iphone 4! HTC is doing really well with its top notch quality! I believe that this will be the most successful smart phone in the market soon. I was blown away the moment I saw this device. Iphone 4 looks like a previous generation handset (mind you its still beautiful)..

People here are mad! How could you come in to a conclusion without even knowing the power of this phone! Once it is released, Desire HD will be the most powerful phone in the market! It has an all new Snapdragon processor which is more battery efficient and improved GPU as well for stunning graphics! Its the best phone with true to life colours having a beautiful Super LCD. Its heavy because its aluminium. If you want something light, then go for Nokia 1100!! Happy?

Desire HD - Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8255 1 GHz processor
Desire - Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz processor

Desire HD has the QSD8255 and the desire has the QSD8250

The 1GHZ processor is newly designed and is suppose to use up to 30% less battery than the previous generation Snapdragon processors (Desire, Nexus One, Evo, HD2).

Also for the people saying it's heavy. It's heavy because it's made out of aluminum casing. which makes the phone a much much more solid feel.

I have the Galaxy S and let me tell you, it feels very cheap and plastic in hand, i feel like it will break in my hand.

I will switch my Galaxy S for the HTC Desire Z (G2 for me) and if the Desire HD comes to t-mobile, i will get that i instead.

Both the Desire HD and Desire Z have new processors which are suppose to use less battery and be more powerful.

Desire HD has poor battery life, what a disapointment! I mean if you are going to improve the specs from desire and make the screen bigger, we expect the battery to also improve you know...

please will all you people hyping up the galaxy s over desire stop talking sh*t. The phone lags with even normal things like clicking onto messages, the only advantages it has is the hd recording(even with htc desire froyo update) still better on galaxy S, and screen resolution is superior to desire.
Desire is much quicker, better touchscreen, better interface(galaxy just ripped off iphone which kinda defeats object of android)......End of!!!

thank you

> In reply to Alui @ 2010-09-29 16:14 from Am9Y - click to readOkay, I see what you mean.

But you forgot to say that
for people who want a nice big screen
for people who prefer correct colours over oversaturation
for people who like a heavier phone because it feels sturdier

the Desire HD beats the SGS hands down ;-) because all your negatives about the Desire HD, are actually positives for me :-D

and then the other points:
-battery life: WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP QOUTING THIS. THE PHONE IS NOT OUT YET, IMPOSSIBLE TO JUDGE BATTERY LIFE ,PERIOD!!
-the front facing camera okay, if you use it, this is definitely a + for the SGS. But if you don't its a + for the Desire HD because you don't want to pay for something you don't use do you?
-and please get your facts straight. The htc Desire HD's battery IS user replaceable


please remember I do agree with you that the SGS beats the Desire HD hands down BUT DO NOT FORGET TO MENTION THAT THIS IS ACCORDING TO YOUR LIKES AND YOUR NEEDS IN A CELL PHONE

When I am the referee, the Desire HD beats the SGS hands down, impossible to argue with that can you?

> In reply to Alui @ 2010-09-29 14:07 from Am9Y - click to readSo I have to answer a lot of questions. Here are some answers:
SGS is a bit better than the Desire because it has WiFi 802.11 n, SAmoled screen, front camera (I do use it).
When SGS will have Froyo, it will beat the Desire hands down(when comparing features), because the Desire will not have any advantage over the SGS.
Now, why SGS with Froyo will beat hands down the Desire HD? Because the HD has two advantages, the bigger screen, which I do not consider it very important, see the comparison between the SGS and the 3.7 inch Desire(also I mention that the 3.5 inch screen of the iphone is enough), and the 8 MPix camera, but I still think that the 5Mpix camera of the SGS is all you may need.
The SGS will have the following advantages over the Desire HD:
-Super Amoled
-removable battery
-longer battery life
-front camera
-50g lighter.
Anyways, as I said HD is a good phone, but because the problems with the battery life (same as in the normal Desire, which causes a lot of complaints from Desire users).
I would hate to carry the charger with me.

> In reply to Matt @ 2010-09-29 15:21 from MAVb - click to readWhy are there so many people on here that want to be told what's good for them and what's not?

It's strange how people want to be spoonfed opinions for them to take on as their own.

Best thing to do is read a full review on a phone to find a detailed list of good/bad points about it, and also if possible, to go into mobile phone stores and ask to see a handset in action. The employees obviously wouldn't give an unbiased opinion regarding it, but you can have a play around and make your own mind up.
