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!!

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
Yesterday I bought a Nokia N8 on contract with Vodafone because I couldn't afford the Desire HD. Later that day I got so frustrated with symbian that I just went back to the Vodafone store and used the N8 as a brick. Broke the window and grabbed the Desire HD from the back of the store. I didn't even bother picking up the Nokia.

Engineer Man, 15 Nov 2010Symbian > Android Symbian - A Manly OS Android - A wannabe OSCOMPLETE RUBBISH!!!!!!!! SYMBIAN IS THE WORST, Android is the most popular and officially Worlds Leading OS whilst WP7 and IOS are 2nd and 3rd and Symbian is considered Worst!!!! Samsung even completely cut off all Symbian Support because they saw how bad and unpopular it is and now its only the worlds Worst Company Nokia supporting it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
one thing no one has mentioned is the factthat the dhd has already been recalled once due to a software issue and it has been relaunched as well all within a space of 3-4 days. i've played with the handset and it seems to be fine. just that that i personally dont find it that much more interseting than a desire as i've played with it far too many times i suppose. still gonna get it though.
