It seems to me this phone is basically the same as hd7. Why not make life easier and produce generic handsets that give you a chance to choose the o/s, be it android or windows etc, upon first boot? I have read htc produce all their high spec shoes theoretically capable of running most operating systems. Ok the limitations of each system software may cause issues but surely in time this could be the way to go.
Just got this phone in store today. Been playing with the demo. It's quite a beautiful phone. Feels HUGE compared to any other HTC or phone for that matter. Bridges the gap between tablets and mobiles perfectly. Im impressed.
Android in HTC has many issues. But in Galaxy S, no issues....
Well done Samsung......
just got it!
so far, i think its pretty good. battery is pretty bad but not as bad as people are saying. and apparently i heard it gets better..
i was downloading 8 apps, and transferring over bluetooth and it was working flawlessly. it did freeze and the screen started flickering tho wen i took out the microSD :S but a reset fixed that issue.
camera is pretty decent for a phone camera. upgraded from an x10 so not much difference. the built in effects are pretty good however, the decrease the quality of the pictures.
tried the sense thing. didnt work for me and it was quite laggy. theres a lot of potential in it, but it definately needs improving. my msgs were saved on the sense but for some reason i cudnt lock it.
screen is awesome. dont need the pixels the amoled to satisfy me. the 4.3" screen of the desire hd is more than enough.
the interface is fairly easy. still in the transition period so cant say much. just updated my contacts adn sent a couple of messages out thats all so far.
pros: awesome phone in general with everything u cud want
cons: battery cover is pretty hard to pull off so i will try to minimize the amount of times i have to remove the battery.

Guys, please be patient, because they are already working on a review, so stay calm. :) They know that a review is very important. They know that this phone is awesome. They are probably working now too on the Milestone 2 review.
The Nokia C7 review is already finished. You will see the Desire HD reviewed soon.

Still Nokia N8 for its price is much more affordable,has most features of all latest smartphones combined and even more. Although some features might be slightly weak when compared.
