marschliono, 05 May 2011this is a great phone , just one problem the 1ghz? isnt enough for it, my nokia n8 is running ... moreu don't have right...because the procesor is very fast... symbian is outdated..everyone know that. have a nice day !
Though gingerbread update has been made available for desire hd, but still i have not got it. When i check for update, it says no update available. What should i do now? I live in Bangladesh. Is the update available in all countries?
this is a great phone , just one problem the 1ghz? isnt enough for it, my nokia n8 is running faster than it, for andriod you constantly need more cpu power than symbian, so my conclusion is, in performances i would rather go with Symbian, they rock, , ,
Gingerbread 2.3 update now available!! Just gotta wait for OTA update. why dont HTC give us the option to do the update manually??
I have been using since Jan. So far, I am satisfied its overall performance except the battery - large screen, fast internet access, nice userfriendly interface. The battery performance is slightly short but this is predictable as only 1230mAh with 4.3" screen... A issue I encountered is the phone will automatically restart after I turn on "Hotspot" function few minutes.
Hi to all i have this phone got it now for 4 days and all i can say is WoW its the best in terms of Everything im so happy that i have spent money on this Awesome Device

I have been using HD2 for over two months now. It's a great phone but the biggest single challenge is it's Bettery and talk time standby. It seems to be one of biggest constraints. May be HTC will have to act upon the same quickly.
I recently upgraded my phone via vodafone and got the HD Desire HD. Overall I have been impressed with its features and the fats internet access through web pages. However, there has been a downfall - maybe this is down to personal experience. All phone network suppliers (vodafone, O2, T-Mobile) do not offer unlimited internet browsing. The options you have is 500mb, 750mb or 1gb.
I upgraded to 1000mb which is eqivalent to 1gb. Its been a month since I upgraded and have realised I have used up a lot of internet usuagE (400MB in space of 2 weeks) I explained this all to Vodafone and say its down to the phone because it works on Higher Definition. I phoned up and received an email from HTC Customer Services that this is not the case. Furthermore, my wife has the same phone with T-Mobile and has not exceeded that limit. On my previous contract I had unlimited access and only used 250mb on average.
I am appalled by the service from Vodafone on this phone. Please can anyone help? or have had the same experience. I have gone through all the settings with HTC Customer services to reduce the usuage.
I am now using my phone wireless through home internet because i am worried about exceeding my limit.
Your help and experience with this phone is much appreciated.
Have been using this phone for over 3 months now and I am very satisfied with it's performance. Can't really think of any negatives. The phone is one of the best available in the market. Looks quite good too.

Overall the Desire HD is a fantastic phone somewhat letdown with a abysmal battery and a mediocre speaker. No amount of battery-saving technique changes the fact that it's only a 1230 mAh battery. Compare that with any other recent smartphone which packs at least 1400+ mAh and you'll realise why even moderate to light usage will kill the battery fast. The speaker's volume is nowhere near loud enough and a google search for "Desire HD volume" will find scores of forum posts of owners trying to find ways to boost the volume of the speaker. If you look past these shortcomings though you will find a feature packed, excellect android phone with a very large screen that that's big but not so big that it won't fit in your pocket.
Just remember to carry the usb charger cable along with you and keep your ear out for the phone's ringing sound.
Using HTC Desire HD from Past 3 months.
Over all phone is good.
Bit Bulky and Battery life is not good.
