Had my Desire HD for a week now. Man what a phone!! Was worried about the battery life issue at first. Phone lasted till about 15h30 with average use. Then installed Juicedefender which now has my battery lasting well past 20h00. It has the best screen ever and a pleasure to browse the net. Considered the Iphone 4g and Blackberry Torch and now am so glad I chose this monster. Well done HTC once again!! Others don't compare.
You go to www.freewarepocketpc.net then type skype on the search area.

Got HTC Desire HD with Android 2.2
Few issues -
1. Speaker and ringtone volume is too mediocre. Speaker is pathetic. Very low volume.
2. Battery lasts only half day. 5-6 hrs if you are frequently using it. It can last for 12hrs with very low usage.
3. There is no option to change lock screen image. It was possible in my old HTC Wildfire.
4. video are .3gp very bad. They are not in mp4 or mpg or mov
1. Very fast . Hardly hangs
2. very responsive and bright screen
3. Very good quality camera.

got my Desire HD phone last week, it's very good. so far much better than my previous phones - nokia or samsung. I find UI quite simple after getting used to. I like its shortcut/widgets. The phone is fast. Indeed there were some lags but are negligible.
emyu10, 16 Feb 2011My phone doesn't connect to any network on WCDMA. Any suggestions?Check your APN settings:
1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
2. Tap Mobile networks > Network operators or Access Point Names.

It is very impressive and times it better then iPhone... moreTry some simple tips which can save you a lot of battery life. a) Reduce your screen timeout period to 15secs. b) Reduce the light intensity to about 1/3 of total c) Dont use moving screensavers or backgrounds, instead try a black one d) Download the Battery Solo Widget; it helps you to better monitor your battery e) Swith off bluetooth when u dont use it f) Dont use wifi and 3g at the same time. Try using the APN DROID application to switch off 3g when u dont really need it g) Close applications that may be open in the background. You can use some utilitiy for that. I personally turn my phone to flight mode before going to sleep and get 2 1/2 days of use, even by using my push email. Last but not least, try completely discharging your phone and charge it fully. The battery monitor widget helps you a lot with that
I using this phone for over a month now. It is very impressive and times it better then iPhone (which I have used in the past). But couple of things which have started to nag me now, which are:
- Battery Life - Is it really that bad? Even without continuously using the phone it seems to die within 4 hours.
- Slow - sometimes while swapping apps it seems to slow down a lot.
All I am wondering if I have right settings or not?
Any advise will be much appreciated.
i have 2 questions...
1. is this device's screen scratch proof?
2. will this device get an update for 2.3 gingerbread?
