OK, I've had this phone for a few days now, but I notice alot of people asking about the sound quality with decent ear/headphones. I'm using a pair of Klipsch earphones and I can confirm that the sound is absolutely wonderful. There are quite a few settings and EQs to choose from so you're bound to find something to suit your taste quite easily.
The screen isn't bad at all, don't know why people complain about it. I find it to be quite sharp and it gives pictures a realistic and sharp sense. I don't know what they're on about.
The camera - Listen - If you want SLR quality pics...go buy yourself an SLR camera. For my needs, this is just great, wonderful pics, the effects are top notch...again, I just don't know what these people are on about.
The battery - If you're not using Bluetooth, WiFi, and a million apps at a time... dont leave them running. A little common sense goes a long way.
I think its a bit heavy though and this makes you worry about dropping it, my last phone was an HTC Touch HD so I've had big phones before. And another thing - if this phone can't fit in your pockets, then your trousers are probably too tight anyway.

Mobilemaster, 15 Nov 2010I agree wit yo man! You are right, Android is on the second place now, but it is MUCH better t... moreYeh Completely right, I actually just checked again on the Net and Android is still number one, and iOS is 2nd and yeh WP7 is great, specially with the whole Console- Generation-like gaming but they missing lots of features, If they had that Android would have some more competition, I had a couple Nokia phones before and I always thought the Symbian was not that customizable and I always disliked it, And Symbian is doing REALLY BADLY check this site NB *http://mashable.com/2010/10/19/symbian-foundation-resignation/ * read all of it, and http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/01/symbian-guru-shuts-down-says-nokia-is-losing-hard/ and http://www.product-reviews.net/2010/07/13/symbian-losing-out-to-android-and-ios/... Ive Also heard that HTC and Motoralo's recent success is from HTC and that EVERYONE including Engadget are saying Nokia should drop Symbain too and switch to Android, If Nokia leaves them the company would only be on very very small manufacturer's and could very well go bankrupt!
I am using Iphone 3gs right now and have no big issues with it except the poor camera quality. want to switch to DHD. Please anyone let me know about the sound quality of DHD (with good quality earplugs) compared to iphone as it is critical for me.
Users please compare n8 with
htc desire (not desire hd) on the
Games- a big fan, please list

query is whether desire
supports games run by desire
Thanks in advance, i'm in need
of huge help, please rate gaming
annoy w, 15 Nov 2010Has anyone been experiencing sluggish/jumpy performance issues with their htc desire hd after ... moreThe answer to your question is yes! The device does seem to have slowed down since I started adding some apps on it, from slowing down when changing the orientation from landscape to portrait mode or when scrolling up and down on one of the homescreens. I have added perhaps five apps them. I am coming from a Blackberry device which means I'm a heavy smartphone user, going throughout the spectrum of multimedia applications. I've had the DHD for two weeks.
People who say that they can't get through a day with the Desire HD because of the battery are probably new to smartphones and most likely have never properly formatted a battery in their entire life. After getting the phone I have left my phone drain the battery to a minimum and then recharged for 12 hours. Repeated this process 3 times and my battery lasts an average of two days under moderate use. The battery does seem small but keep in mind that this phone packs a last generation Snapdragon processor that consumes less power than the processor on the original Desire for example. So please remeber about battery formatting when buying a new smartphone otherwise the battery WILL be crappy no matter what phone you buy.
I got one of these great device except camera. Camera is poor & blurry of left side of image. Battery I get a good day out of mine but I don't run 20 apps at once

Yes, the specs are nice and all, but the battery life is so short it's just stupid!! I mean do you have to charge your phone twice or more times a day? I don't think so!! Get a Galaxy S or a Motorola Droid 2, or the SE X10! any of those will out last the HD's flimsy battery!!
annoy w, 15 Nov 2010Has anyone been experiencing sluggish/jumpy performance issues with their htc desire hd after ... moreWith desire hd u will always put a charger on ur pocket ,bcz definitely it will not finish the have day and the battery will die,its good only if ur using at home with the charger always connected,other wise don't go for it,any way nothing special about performance I'm using it since10days,and I'm suffering when using the wifi bcz always it disconnect automatically,not mentioning the bad sound

You are right, Android is on the second place now, but it is MUCH better then Symbian. I have nothing against Symbian, but Android is BETTER. There is no way Symbian can beat them. Samsung has left the foundation, Sony Ericsson has left too. Only Nokia will produce Symbian phones, and some Japanese companies. By the way Symbian will NOT die so soon. WP7 will die sooner if they will NOT add the copy/paste function, the Blueetoth file transfer, the Multitasking, the Mass storage mode, the memory card. If they will add these features, WP7 will COMPETE Android!
Battery Life is not good at all. HTC shuld make a new battery for this phone Atleast 1500mAH or Higher. Otherwise this phone is just a awesome
if you know, does this phone have any office application installed or can it be downloaded?

Looking at a desire Hd today liked the look but the screen smaller than htc wp7 surely its thr same? Odd.

Many of us in Asia wld like to buy the htd desire hd however it's a month since desire HD's official release date in Singapore, it's a pity the taiwan phone has not been seen in any of the shops in Asia, whilst Europe australia have more than enough. We are keeping records of your market preference. And when they stop buying the phone do not expect us to buy them.
Has anyone been experiencing sluggish/jumpy performance issues with their htc desire hd after they fully customized their phone by installing apps and other info like media? Very honest response needed here please and not fanboy talk cause I will be buying this without a contract so that's a lot of money on my side so I need to get this right. Also if anyone wants to give a detailed description of their experience it would be appreciated. Thanks much
