0v0, 07 Dec 2010Cool mate,
The most important review we want:
1)- Screen Quality
2)- Sound Qua... moreHi mate,
First, I think it is WORTH to mention that I came from an iPhone, so I got RID of my iPhone and its limitations, and now I'M FREE!
Regarding to your questions, here is my review:
SCREEN: First of all IT IS Mind Blowing! Forget SAMOLED OR SLCD, whatever people say out there! The size and resolution of screen makes you to forget other things! It is simply Perfect screen, also the proximity sensor work great :)
With Headphones: Again, mind blowing, just like Home-theater, and don't forget I had iPod in my iPhone so I think I can make the best comparison, so with headphones sound quality is simply perfect!
With Speaker: Not so bad as I thought when I was reading comments from others, it is on par with iPhone, BUT BUT, there is something as you know DOLBY MOBILE and SRS SOUND!
SO: You MUST set DOLBY MOBILE setting when you listen music from SPEAKER, and you MUST set SRS SOUND when you listen to music from Headphones!
why I say MUST, is because SOUND QUALITY depends so much from this settings! so DON'T FORGET THIS ADVICE!
Will it be enough if I say this phone has MUCH BETTER browser than "iPhone"? I think this is much worthy than explaining more!
MUSIC INTERFACE: ON PAR with iPOD! Everything you expect frm music player: Playlists, artists, genres, all songs, Cover-flow, equalizer, DOLBY & SRS sound! AND AND, so worthy to mention IT IS FAR FAR EASY to add songs to Desire HD than in iPhone (iTunes sucks) I just Copay and Paste musics from my pc to SD card of Desire HD! :) this makes me so happy :)
APPLICATIONS: I didn't have so much time to test so many apps but until now that I got some apps they are just as perfect as in iPhone! Really :) and there are SO MUCH FREE apps than in iPhone :)
SENSE UI: OH MY GOD! Now I blame my self why I was using the BORING iOS! there is just SO SO MUCH options and possibilities to customize this phone, everything you can set just as you want it! Ringtones, notification sound, alarm sound, wallpaper (even live wallpaper), folders, skins, scenes, etc etc! :) so far so Happy :)
CAMERA: WOW! since I got this phone I forgot where I left my Digital Camera! REALLY! Just imagine 8 megapix., flash, and lots of Effects, AAANNDD HD Video Recording :), also the UI of Camera is so Fluid and easy to use, everything is where it must be.
CALLING: Crystal clear voices! yep! :)
I was playing Bowling last night and the ambient was so noisy BUT when I answered to my phone I was hearing the voice so Clear and much more interestingly the other side was hearing my MUCH CLEARER, because of Active Voice Cancellation! :)
MESSAGING: Great messaging, it is so easy to write with HUGE keyboard! and because of the screen size it is much more easier to write in Desire HD than in iPhone :) and don't forget the """SIZE"" of keyboard in LANDSCAPE MODE!! WOOOW!!! :):):)
BATTERY LIFE: I don't really I don't know why some people keep complaining about the battery life! There is NO such a thing as battery life problem with this phone! and also WORTH to mention I DID a BATTERY FORMAT! it really works :)...and I say that YOU must be happy with ONE DAY (24h) usage with single charging cuz' SCREEN IS HUGE and it consumes the most of the battery!
THAT's ALL FOLKS! :)
If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me, you are always welcome :)
Hey guys! I just got the phone and I can tell you, it's excellent in every way you could think of! Go for it and you won't regret it! :) HTC For Ever :)
Do u guys think that the DHD will fully support Google Maps 5? Cause it's not in the list of the supported phones, kinda weird.

Well my heart was always set on the Htc desire hd just the price was just heinous. I will wait for the price to be reasonable and buy it. Phones become obsolete so fast. Before you know it there is a better phone on the market. *sigh*
I will buy the htc desire hd and hope that it will carry me through for about a year or two. *sigh*

Better to wait till it is available at your country official agent + reasonable price.
Nexus S is just normal as Galaxy S, except for 2.3 which will be available for Desire HD as well.

I hope the price continues to drop! I will attack when it is priced at $600 USD. I really like this phone :(
But then there is the Nexus S for $549.00 USD and i can pick that up at any bestbuy when it comes out on the 16th of Dec. :( I also get a warranty with that! oh the horror oh the conundrum... Oh santa why couldnt you be real? LOL.
