WinMo is suckest OS.
Microsoft should not make WinMobile.
Wish HTC stop using Microsoft products.
Look at Apple iPhone, take only a year to get to top of smartphone maker. Talk about 1st iPhone.
Nice HTC HD2, will buy if not using Winmobile OS.
After using iPhone 3G and S, NO phone can beat iPhone.
Oh, and lastly, the reason why this is not doing so well in HD playback and coreplayer benchmarks compared to the acer will be the QSD drivers for video acceleration.
XDA developers have custom drivers that boosts MSM72xx based device performance and are working on QSD**** ones too.
I believe there is a licensing issue or qualcomm are just lazy.
The drivers are keeping HD2 back...similar to menlow and the GMA500 core.
this phone is in a league of its own... a new breed of super phones... i think the only phones tht can actually be compared with this one will be Nokia N900 and the xperiaX10.. atleast thts wat i think... may be will just wait till the other 2 are launched..
felix thomas, 18 Nov 2009this model & size ,expecialy this is windows 6.5 really every body love wiondws mobiles compar... moreI purchased the HD2, because I like the phone. I agree with you, the HD2 should have front camera, photo and video editing, and beter audio.....I also have the Omnia 2 and it has front camera, photo and video editing, DLNA, TV out, record from FM radio, and better audio. The battery usage is GREAT. I use both phones. I mainly use the Omnia 2 for music and watching moves on my big sreen TV or while traveling. The picture is AMAZING from the Omnia 2 to the TV.....
Don't get me wrong I love the HD2 too. Both phones to me are the best out RIGHT now..........
Just a note that iphone has 320x480, the satio and the blackberry storm as well as many LG devices with 3" to 3.5" screens will have a much lower PPI.
HD2 is a step up from this.
But sure, on 3" density of pixels is higher, and dot pitch smaller than on 4.3"...but the bigger screen actually lets you read something at that res for a while.
3" might look spiffy at 800x480....but it will give you more of a headache than 4.3"...and in any case 4.3" at 800x480 is still leading size and res and PPI.
biggest problem is not PPI but more colour depth for 4.3".
Anthony, 18 Nov 2009follow up...
when i said "It has nothing to do with how much pixels a screen has." i ment pix... more
First of all,
"...i ment pixels per inch of screen..."
Its per square inch, cause screens are 2 dimensional.
As far as displays are concerned there is something in pixel 'count' that is called as native resolution.
OS es have 'display' resolution SUPPORT while displays have 'native' resolution.
Display resolutions can be changed while native resolution are manufactured into a display.
WinMo supports four 'display' resolution types only namely : QVGA, WQVGA, VGA and WVGA.
Windows desktop OSes (7, vista, xp etc.) supports various 'display' resolution types being as low as VGA as can be seen in another HTC device 'Shift' running Vista.
Now coming to HD2, the native resolution built into the display is WVGA for a 4.3" display making singular pixels larger in size as compared to display of phones like Xperia X1 or LG Arena.
You have a pixel count of 480 horizontally and 800 pixels vertically, i.e. 38400 pixels in all.
Larger singular pixels means this display (in terms of image quality) can be compared to 2.8" QVGA displays.
A more pixel dense screen meaning more pixels per square inch meaning smaller singular pixels makes viewing pics, videos, icons, animations, texts etc look finer.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Theres nothing to compare..we all know that iphone is for kids like you! But for professionals like us..HD2 is the best there is for now..so better get your a** outa here kid..
I hate to spend over 1000 USD on the phone, thinking it is the best in class and find out there is other phones are better.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Iphone lol
Iphone now trying to get the features that other phones had long time.
That is nothing to follow any more.
Maybe 2 years ago. But definitely not now. the iphone has not come out with anything new after 2007 with the lunch of the first one. after that the other 2 iphones are just trying to catch up with the rest of the world and still falling short.
