In case you did not notice, Apple iPhone 4 went sm... moreSo you can see, opinions are very different but the most important thing is that we all remember that it's all opinions, not facts. Saying something is good or bad has no truth if it's about tastes or peronal likings.
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)
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2010No front camera,.........?
Insane, Please.... HTC s always a dissapointment...Name me ONE brand which has a flagship cell phone where there is nothing missing, no matter how useless the missing function is...
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 ;-)

Markus, 28 Sep 2010How good job does HTC's dual led flashes do?In photos; poorly like every other LED flash in the world. In video it should be quite good. I remember seeing someone using the flashlight and it was really really bright (a lot better than for example my GF's Nokia C5)
remember, this is all speculation. Maybe you can find some testshots online
KEEPER, 28 Sep 20101200 mAh Battery...That's not good,that means 1day wi-fi,photos,talking...Actually I'll be happy if it makes it through the day.
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!
the iPhone always a dissapointment and HTC Desire HD is the best Phone
desire got more battery power than this and is screen is bigger too so means
htc desire hd going to be big flop due to its battery juice
KEEPER, 28 Sep 20101200 mAh Battery...That's not good,that means 1day wi-fi,photos,talking...It doesn't mean that by default. The new 45nm CPU is more efficient than old ones made with the 65nm process.
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?
its amazing how much processing power it has it make all the other competitors seem sa if thy are not trying
its about screen ..lcd or super lcd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...ture=related

You can increase battery life on all HTC's (and the Samsung Galaxy S), by changing the default signal setting in the test menu. To access the test menu, bring up the dial pad on your screen and enter the following... *#*#4636#*#* - Then, scroll down to the default signal type and change it to GSM auto [PRL]. Then keep pressing the back button all the way back to the home screen. This will not give you a slower internet connection as it will still let you connect to 3G when you open the browser.
This has been known to almost double the battery life in some cases. Hope this helps.
NB; For the samsung Galaxy S, you can change this setting in the settings menu. Typing in the above code will not work on Samsung handsets.
