I've been using the Desire HD for a week now and although it's a nice smooth mobile to use, the battery life is appalling. I'm very disappointed in it's charge span.
After just cruising Facebook and the like on it for an hour, the battery is almost half drained. I've turned off background data and all and that doesn't seem to help.
I'm ready to sell it, not really enjoying it's battery life span, it's hideous.

I am also planning to switch from my old desire to this one..

I haven't try increasing their volumes though except for one that I've downloaded from htc sense and use it as my notification.
Re rooting the device it's all up to you but if I were you I wouldn't do it. That is one of the causes for lagging the phone.
Enjoy ... Goodluck!

I bought new desire hd, can anybody tell me how to install games and from where...i dnt find degault games..plz suggest...
Got mine DHD yesterday. Display can not be compared with my previous super amoled on 8500 wave. It is not not bad, but colors are different not bright. Phone is solid, looks and feels good. I think the battery will hold longer after some time of charging. Pretty sure battery is not the best one, but I can live with it having microUSB cables everythere. Overall experience is good. I don`t regret of buying it. I`ve downloaded some games in 3D - awersome, but screen drains battery very fast.
Had this phone for 4 days, and compared to the standard Desire it's poor. The screen size makes it very nice for reading email etc but the overall phone performance is very poor. The battery life wasn't to bad but the compared to the standard desire its poor. Interaction and response time was slow. Disappointed overall and went back to the Desire. I think that the processor is under powered for the screen.
Don't do it :)
