HTC Desire HD review: Most wanted - read the full textProceed with caution, big Snapdroids ahead. We guess that sign is due wherever someone mentions Desire HD. It’s big and bad and it takes no prisoners. HTC certainly took their time with releasing a badass Android handset on our side of the pond but ...

> In reply to pacy @ 2012-06-06 09:51 from s3Ds - click to readHi, yes u r right. Desire HD has a perfect sound when u hear from earphone even from the stock earphone provided by HTC. In my honest opinion, the sound enhancer such as SRS Enhancement and Dolby really make it stand at the front line. I don't know how to express this... The sound is superb, a pure bass and clear sound and i am really being amazed on this. Compared to Ipod and other phones, this sound of this phone really really great... Cheers!

"Disappointing audio quality."- This isn't true. It seems that this software test method, has nothing to do with the way a device actually sounds to human ear. I've tested my DHD with two pairs- Senheiser and Koss headphones and poweramp player/flat eq/ and I was nicely surprised how this phone sounds- clear, transperant with good dynamics, not so harsh on trible and with deep and pure bass. I had Nokia X6 previously and gsm arena review says is has a nice sound quality,bit it is rubbish. I suggest gsmarena to test devices not only with software, but how really sounds with good pair of headphones and proper player. This review has made me doubt should I buy DHD. Gladly I ignored it and I'm happy with my device. Can say the sound is way better than Nokia X6 is similar to Motorola xoom and it is close to iPod 5 gen.

HD is superb, but only lack in charging.Even it is not getting hole day. Battery is killing like any thing. Need to carry charger always.
Other then that.. superb superb superb.

one more thing that I observed (and nobody said anything about this).
I have found out that the sound using skype is much better than the one using the 'normal' mobile network. So I am not sure if the problem of the sound comes from the sound 'part' or it a software problem.
More, using a decent pair of headphones, I have no complain about the sound quality for listening to music. To be honest, I did not see any difference between DHD and other mobiles. Probably you can not compare with a highend mp3 player, but the quality is more than decent.
I also do not understand why everybody is praising galaxy S, while forgetting the hardware performance of DHD. come on, galaxy s is no match, only in relation to the screen (which, in the end, is not the only component of a phone).
with a 2000 mA batery and an upgrade to 2.3 I think this phone can still be in line with some of the newer devices (and even kick ass for most of them)

The battery life depends a lot on the usage!
If data is activated (with sync) and used to browse internet (high usage) - it lasts about 5-6h
If data is activated, but no real usage (only get the emails, for example)... it can go to 12h
With no data activated (used mostly as a phone)... I can not tell... but quite long (~10% per day) - depending on the amount of calls, of course
With WiFi, but no data... and heavy internet usage.. about 8h
Used as music player - one day, maybe more
If you use the phone as a clock/alarm (during the night), with the screen on (in night mode) - it takes about 5% of battery in 8h.

From what I saw, the battery life is slightly better then the one of the Galaxy S, used under same conditions.
