I've owned this phone for 4 and a bit years. The first two years - great. Best thing I could have asked for. Moving from a flip phone to a smart phone was a welcomed change. I fell in love with my HTC Desire HD. The past two and a bit years however, a nightmare. I've swapped batteries countless times (as you would expect over these amount of years). Phone will randomly reset itself. It doesn't charge about 50% of the time. Can't charge whilst on (will display "your phone is using more battery than is being charged. Please close some applications" despite no applications being open). Full battery lasts 30 minutes screen time - max. That's with WiFi and 3G off and no applications open. You want to text or use an app or *do I dare say* use the internet, this thing is gunna die on you in less than 10 minutes. And that's from a full battery. When using the internet, the phone will turn itself off and upon reboot a full battery will go down to "less than 3%". Have to carry around charger everywhere. This thing was basically a landline, you couldn't use it without being close to a powerpoint.
This phone WAS (key word - was) great. I loved my HTC. However, I'm one who doesn't swap a phone every 6 months, I like to keep them till they die. The last 2 years has been a nightmare watching my phone slowly die. I'm not sure if I can return to HTC in the future. I must say however - it was fun while it lasted.
Has anyone updated the android version? Can anyone tell me what is the last android version that works on this device??? best phone in the world
flavour, 04 Sep 2014my battery is not too goodI myself got burned when I bought two of those "high capacity" batteries from china. They're junk.
I'm now using an Anker battery. It seems to be well made and it gets me up to 5 days of battery life, if I only use my phone for checking the time and it usually lasts long enough to survive boring night shifts with heavy usage.
I'm on randomblame's 4.4.2 TakTik rom, still.

Meg, 18 Jul 2014nowadays anytime i charged the phone it look like the battery is full but if i remove the char... moreProblem is battery. This phone consumes more battery, so I have to charge 2 time. A new battery is only last for 4 to 6 month. Try new battery. I also faced same problem.
fusion, 15 Jul 2014is a nice phone with very strong battery capacity...but it does not support 3G network or H+ .... moreMy cousin has this phone and the battery life is terrible, it only lasts for 45 mins screen on time. 1230 Mah battery is not enough.
HTC should have put a 1600 Mah battery. You can buy one of amazon
is a nice phone with very strong battery capacity...but it does not support 3G network or H+ . I am currently using one and that's what am experiencing ..but all things being equal,it is one of the bests android phones on the world market. I strongly recommend to all mobile users..
