Big battery is not the answer always, power efficient processor can work outstandingly even with the tiniest of batteries! This phone has the second generation snapdragon processor and a all new powerful GPU. As of now, this device will be the fastest and the most efficient in the market!

Although I love the Desire HD and I am surely going to buy it. For me it has two epic fails:

-no physical buttons on the front (shame!!)
-only 1.5gb internal memory (what are we, the year 2000??)

any other people who are going to buy this phone, but who are a litte annoyed by something about it (except its price :))

who uses it? I don't...

since the dawn of front facing camera's, I've had phones with it and the only time I used it, was to see if my hair was ok

I love it that it doesn't have a front facing camera, no need to pay for it if you don't use it

> In reply to xxxx @ 2010-09-27 07:12 from v$AZ - click to readfor me what is wrong with it:

-it feels like it's made of cardboard (which is NOT something you want of a flagship phone with this price tag)
-no flash, absolute fail of Samsung
-it looks to much like an iPhone (I have had one for one year and if I'm buying a new phone, I want something that looks a litte less like an iPhone) but this is really very personal

but other than these things, it's al lovely phone

It would have been better if it has secondary camera for video calls. If it comes with secondary camera, it will beat entire market.

> In reply to Matt @ 2010-09-29 10:51 from MAVb - click to readdon't get me wrong, I really like my iPhone 3GS but I'm just sick of Apple always saying they make the best smartphone, it has all you need, it is unbelievebly revolutionary...

I think if Steve Jobs has a titanium turtleneck. If you take it of, his huge ego will escape

again, I like the iPhone, it can do extraordinary things that other phones can also do but less smooth. It is a joy to work with, its fast, its a good music player,... but it is NOT a good smartphone, it is just an APP MONSTER

it's like Apple has redefined the word "smartphone"
I mean, my Nokia 3310 is not a smartphone, no matter how many times I say it. But if Steve Jobs says it, it must be true

First of all. Why do other brands need to follow Apple? You say if other brands don't copy Apple, they make bad products? Honestly, most ridiculous statement of the year, all do respect for you mate.

I'd like to say the complete opposite. I'm using an iPhone 3GS now and I really do not need more resolution/inch. Putting their retina display in the iPhone 4 to me was a very "stupid" move. Shure, they can advertise it, make it sound like every other screen is crap because of its low resolution and frankly, they are doing a very good job jamming it into people's minds and in that way, it IS a very smart move ;-)

I am 100% shure that I (you see, I say I and not everyone in the world) will have more use of a 4.3" display with lower resolution than a 3.5 screen with a massive resolution.
Your screen stays small, your fingers stay the same size so what actually does the retina display offer more in user friendlyness? Shure your pictures will be crisper but I think my pictures are picture perfect on the 3.5" 480x320 3GS screen I am looking at right now. the text on my screen stays readable until it becomes to small to view (I say too small to view with my eyes, not to small to display on this resolution)


to sum it up:

A BRAND SHOULD MAKE THEIR PRODUCTS SO THAT THEY FILL THE NEEDS OF THEIR CUSTOMERS

APPLE MAKES A PRODUCT AND THEN SAY TO THE CUSTOMERS, "YOU NEED THIS,THIS IS THE BEST OF EVERYTHING" SO DISGUISING THEIR ACTUAL NON REVOLUTIONARY INNOVATIONS AS THE BEST INVENTION UP TO DATE (ALTHOUGH MOST OF THEIR INNOVATIONS, AREN'T REALLY INNOVATIONS)

At least HTC leaves out the useless features, other brands (I will name no names) leave out usefull to very essential features.

so in your eyes, every brand is a dissapointment ;-)

remember, this is all speculation. Maybe you can find some testshots online

By the time I go to bed, my iPhone is barely holding on (5-15% battery left) and I don't even use 3G!! only EDGE (which is more than fast enough for me)
At least my iPhone is doing better now than before the iOS 4 update, because then it was 1% battery down every minute unless I shut down all of my data connections

First of all the screen is SLCD, which uses a lot less power than an AMOLED AND the processor is built using 45nm technology in stead of 65nm technology, making it much less battery draining. The only way to know if it lasts longer than the normal Desire we will have to wait untill the launch. RIGHT NOW IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL ANYTHING ABOUT THIS

so if you don't know what you're talking about, shut your bloody mouth!

pity the battery is only 1220mah, same as the Desire. this tells me htc haven't acknowledged the poor battery life of the Desire. With a bigger screen & more features, surely this can only mean the Desire HD will have worse battery life than the original Desire?
