I have a HTC touch HD right now. one of the best phone i have ever used. I love the looks of the HD2. Just that I think the phone is a bit too big. would have been perfect if it's 4inch screen! and the phone a bit smaller. I really dont think a phone should get any bigger and heavier then the iPhone or HTC Touch HD.
is this phone has the screen made of glass like the iphone or is plactic?
no secondary camera no problem!
1. make skype call
2. stand in front of a mirror
3. problem solved!
Bharpreet_India, 04 Nov 2009Yup , thats why i have dropped my plans of buying HD2 thru net. The only way left out is to fi... morehey bharpreet..good news is that the HTC HD2 is being shipped to Europe and Asia...i think whether india is included in the asian market or not!!!

... moredude are you serious? first of all what do u mean by no real multitouch?it has multitouch and it works so who cares if htc put it in or microsoft?theres no difference.next who will ever use a digital compass when u hav gps and google maps....next hav u actually compared screens?there is no visual difference between 65k and 16m its just a fat spec....next, 5mp camera is not bad, u cant expect an 8mp unless its more expensive than iphone....its so huge cuz of the screen, its main sellin point, if u dont like it buy somethin else but don't blame it, it satisfies its target audience that's y its called hd. next only one phone has hd video recording rite now so you can't expect all high end devices to suddenly hav it.
Can the batt really last that long?Cause it uses 1230mah batt on a 4.3 inch screen? Anyway, apart from that, everything is totally awesome.
HTC HD2 NOW Shipping!!! Should have one in my hand maybe next week. Did pre-order through Clove!!!
People are saying what this phone is missing. This phone was designed for the business user in mind. They don't use video calling alot or ever? I saw a review on who HTC is realy targeting (Business User) for this phone. This phone is Great for business use... This phone is just what the business user needs (edit doc, take pictures, stay connect to office, clients, send pictures to family, connect to social net works after hours or during work hrs, listen to music, and view movies on the go. Now you can leave the laptop at work or home. Now a second version will be out next year for the casual user that may have the second video camera and other features for the casual user????
For me there is a big difference between resistive and capacitive. If you have an iPhone and a N97, you'll know what I'm saying.
5 MP is decent enough. iPhone is going to look really stupid. I love apple but NO FLASH makes me sick. For bloody sake, put a FLASH in the iphone.
I really loved my iPhone but after I seen this, my mind changed. HTC HD2 is the best phone YET.
But still I'm anticipating an iPhone with a Flash. iphone 3GF (flash).
I am struggling to make a decision. E72 or HD2?
My current phone is the E71. It is easily the best phone I have had. I have some great apps on it (conversations, garmin mobile xt, shazam). Also very pleased with outlook integration and intuitive interface. What you guys think - reasons for moving to HTC? What's the Windows Marketplace like? Hd2 too big?

I have the Omnia 2 and you can store apps on the storage card. When you install apps it gives you three options to store file 1.) Main 2.) My storage (internal HD) and 3.) Storage card. I have apps stored on Main and My storage. No reason to store apps on storage card you have plenty space on main and My storage for files unless you tons of apps to install.
who could clarify specifically if htc hd2 does not have video recording? thanks
This phone looks really awesome, imho the best phone (almost) available on the market, and by far.
Like Anthony (and many more it seems), I do wish there were a sec cam though, not for taking pictures of myself but for video calling on Skype when connected to Wifi.
As for the specs, I have a few questions though, mostly directed to those knowledgeable guys who hang out here :
1/ I read feedback from users of Omnia II who quickly maxed out their internal memory by installing apps. It seems that this phone can't install apps on the external SD card, nor launch apps from the memory card. So these guys were pretty pissed, which I can understand.
I assume the same thing just can't be true with the HD2. Since it has almost no internal memory at all, that would mean having a smartphone but being unable to install any third party apps. Could anyone confirm that it is possible on the HD2 ?
2/ The specs on this site say the HD2 reads DivX/XVid encoded videos. On the official HTC site, it just says ".avi". It is an assumption from gsmarena or is there evidence that DivX is supported? It just seems weird to me that if HTC includes the codecs in this phone, they don't communicate more clearly about it, as Samsung did when then started to include the codecs in their phones (with the Jet, as far as I know)
3/ To Devil666 : I'm pretty much a noob, so I'd be glad if you could explain to me how "real" multipoint is better than the multipoint brought by HTC Sense. I could understand the concern the multipoint might not be as smoother if integrated to the OS rather than to the manufacturer's UI, but from the videos available on the net that we all saw, smoothness doesn't really seem to be a problem to the HD2.
Now that X10 has been announced I know the only option I have is HD2. First I don't care about the MP difference of the cameras as I don't really care about cameras at all! Second HD2 will be released at least 4 month before X10 and all the previews show that it's wonderful smooth one. X10 might not be released as they've promised, also it will definitely cost more than HD2. Apart from WinMo disadvantage, my only complain is lack of OLED display, but I can live with that. Bye SE! Hi HTC!
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2009Such an awesome phone. With multi-touch, 4.3" screen, 1GHz processor, and a lot more but windo... moreSo you really prefer to have Android instead of WinMo and stick to other phones (like newly announce joke, X10) and forget how many thing you could have with HD2? If you want to compromise I guess the best way is sticking to HD2. At the moment there's no competitor, maybe in next couple of month, but not now, and this will be released soon...
