I would just like to state that if anyone is looking at the phone and is worried about the battery life, you shouldn't be. the battery life is far into average for smart phones these days, the scare of the battery life came about by people opening the box using it till it died and not tweaking its settings. the battery will almost last 2 days on one charge after the battery has settled on its capacity ( Charge Several times ) usually within a week or two.
I really want this device, and studied all of its aspects, the battery life problem quickly became my biggest worry and after digging deep and getting rid of useless information I found the battery usage to be very reasonable. My only recommendation would be to buy another battery if you go on holiday or something. :)
Ahh thx i appreciate it, thx king bradley and mobilemaster... to that unknown guy who replied negatively, i should say u're abit bias ... Awesome i'll probably buy it and feedback too of how AWESOME or not awesome it is... :)

By the way I don't need that feature. It is not the most important thing on a phone. I admit that it is a good feature. I don't want to be a blind person. The Desire HD can support too DivX files, see the review. :) This one is better then the Galaxy S. The Desire HD can support HD video too.
The Galaxy S has a BIGGER internal storage this is the third thing what need to be mentioned after the video call. Samsung is good at making phones with big internal memory. :)

Imm, 14 Nov 2010Is this phone really worth the money? , just need feedback cause i wanna buy it, but is the au... moreNo it doesnt worth money u will regret if u buy it,I'm telling u my feedback after I bought it ,battery and the sound they r really bad,the camera is just below normal,I compare it after I used galaxy,I phone4,and HTC hd2,number 1 is iPhone4,2 galaxy,and 3 HTC hd2,about this phone it is really disappointing
I always put my personal experience with this phone and gsmarena guys are deleting the negative opinions,again this phone doesn't worth the money,battery is very bad,sound is the worst,nothing special about the screen,really it is a bad experiment,my advice don't buy it.for for I phone or galaxy they are real phones.with this mobile u will always regret especially when u turn the music and u listen to the disappointing sound.the WiFi also has an issue if leave the phone for5minuts then u try to use the internet it will give u connection error,so u have switch off then on the WiFi to be able to reconnect again

smartphoner wannabe, 14 Nov 2010guys i'm pretty sure of the answer im gonna get
but i need a subjective and convincing answer... moreHi!
Desire HD over Samsung Galaxy S- If you want a phone with a bigger screen, the Desire HD is for you.
If you want a phone with MORE Ram, the Desire HD is for you. If you want a better camera, the Desire HD is for you. If you want a great UI, the Desire HD is for you.
Samsung Galaxy S over Desire HD
If you want a very good screen, the Samsung Galaxy S is for you!
guys i'm pretty sure of the answer im gonna get
but i need a subjective and convincing answer
which on is better, HTC Desire HD or Samsung Galaxy S
the thing is GSMarena says they both sorta suck in audio reproduction, my main interest is in the multi-media
and i know S-amoled is better than S-lcd but how much better !!??
i've posted the same question on Galaxy S forum to compare notes
[deleted post]Be gone KID! Don't try to do anything bad here, just go to your forum and stay there. It;s useless, you can't bring the phone down, and I will try to bring your N8 DOWN, because that phone is a garbage!! Nokia is weak these days! HTC is the KING.
I have heard that their is a firmware update soon to up the fps to 30fps and also to make the sound better via speaker on phone and louder. Also the update will sort out the light changing so much when you are taking video.
Owner of this phone about a week. Good phone... Also user of SE X10 i.Using mobile phones over 12 years. Ergonomy-good,Internet-very good,Sound-very good over headphones using Dolby-mobile,camera good not like carl-zeiss on the N8,Screen-responsivnes excellent,pitty it's not SUPER AMOLED or RETINA but all and all good. In hands felling like a serious device not like toy,problem with design it's only with volume rokr and with power and screen button on the top of the phone they are to siff and you must trained your finger skills with them.Price-quality ratio:about 470euros on the post paid in Zagreb,Croatia,without post paid 650.Piece of advice,must buy a protection case,strongly suggested!!!My only complain to the htc. Why don't you put the leather case in package with this kind of machinery??? Potetential buyers don't be afraid,you will play with this gadget in months to come. And they will all release the next models of phones with 50mpx cameras with panavision or arriflex lenses,memory of 100 terabites,procesors of100ghz,OS android 10.0 and we will all live happily ever after.. God save us all ; )
Paul from the Neths, 11 Nov 2010Thanks guys at gsmarena for the great DHD review.
Love it! Waithing for it was not useless a... moreI disagree! I went through their review and did not learn anything new compare to the previous review I read... So all this wait is far from being worth it!!
Not even a word about the poor battery and most of it is just a description. I will keep on reading Engadget!!
