I have my DHD since october 20th. With moderate use I can get 2 days out of it...
It's fast and a large screen, but the battery and sound are not good.
It will do for now, but when SE experia X12 comes out, that's what I'm going to buy (if it ever hits the market)
I had one of the first ones here in Belgium, and now it's sold out again.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2010Does it have a secondary camera to make a video call? In specifications, we can see it is ment... moreNO!!! can't you read guys? mentioned many times here: this phone has not a 2nd camera. The spot you'll see is the lightsensor (proximity).
darren, 28 Oct 2010htc desire hd is not available what so ever until november 1st i was informed!!??I'm from the Netherlands. The Desire HD on Vodafone network was released on Saturday 16-10 only for the pre-orders, so the Netherlands was one of the first countries. There was a agreement between Vodafone and HTC for supplying them out. The original release in the Netherlands is the same as elsewhere in Europe.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2010Yes, it seems like a good phone but it cost almost 800 USD!!!!!! yes, - 800 USD Galaxy ... moreIn Lithuania both cost 1950LTL :) But Desire HD now "owns" FroYo, better camera and also much better support
Yes, it seems like a good phone but it cost almost 800 USD!!!!!!
yes, - 800 USD
Galaxy S - 600 USD
my old phone works fine - and does not need anything!
so for 200 USD or for 800 USD I can feed a few hungry children and get more happiness than from a piece of plastic that will be obsolete in 6 months.
(after 2-3 years it becomes toxic waste)
You can also make a choice! :))))
I wonder if Facebook integration works the same way with contacts as on HD2. Man, how I love this feature! It became a must have for me.
[deleted post]If you are not in a hurry, wait until SGS has Froyo.
Otherwise the phones are both very good, depends what you consider as "a must". If it's bigger screen, then it's HTC, if it's second camera, bigger internal memory, bigger battery I would get the SGS.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2010Choosing a smartphone these days is getting rather frustrating!! Of course our needs evolve as... moreHi'
Well, there are NO perfect phones. I don't know why, because in my opinion some companies can make perfect phones. The Galaxy S lacks the LED flash, the N8 lacks the video light, the X10 lacks Multi touch and other things too. I think that this phone is a very good one. Android is the BEST OS now as I see. WP7 is a disaster! They made a big mistake. The OS lacks so many basic things such as the copy/paste.
Choosing a smartphone these days is getting rather frustrating!! Of course our needs evolve as new technologies become available but why oh why do we have to make such sacrificies:
Nokia N8: Symbian OS still looks outdated...
Samsung Galaxy S: Very poor camera for still shots with no Flash!!
HTC DHD: battery life sucked in about 1 day!!
(I exclude the SE X10 and Iphone 4 because I hate them both for different reasons)
So, seriously!?!? Where is that industry leading us?? What´s that strategy??
Unfortunately for me, I will HAVE to pick one of these because I really need a phone and I am tired of waiting, not for the perfect phone but for one that suits ALL my basic requirements...
Now, since Symbian will always be Symbian and that you can´t add a flash to the Galaxy S, I think I will go for the DHD hoping that the battery issue will get solved. Software upgrade or 3rd party 1500mAh battery, not sure what´s the most probable or what would come first...
If anyone has any clue, please enlight me!
And that court cases have already had a impact on Android's development. V2.3 has been pushed back to the end of the year, while v3.0 will only come next year. How sad :-(
Android is gonna die,
Well, if someone steals your code line for line they have a pretty darn reason to sue. Android is by far the only OS that has more stolen components from other vendors, "none" of it was actually written by Google. Thus why Apple is Sueing HTC, MS is sueing Motorola and now Oracle sueing Google directly. All of it revolves around the Android platform. The whole OS is ripped off from someone elses work, pretty pathetic if you ask me.
I thought Google's unofficial slogan was "Don't be Evil" I guess they forgot their own motto
I have 'played' with both and my vote goes to the samsung tab. If the HD had a 5in screen it might have had a chance . . . And the weak battery is a big draw back too. I belive there is a after market battery available for it though.Both devices are too big to be used as regular phones. For that I am using a 80gram cheap Nokia :-)
HTC DESIRE HD VS. SAMSUNG TAB, SLCD vs. TFT, 8MP vs 3:15MP, Touchwiz Vs. HTC sense, internal Memory 1.5GB vs. 16/32GB, No Secondary camera Vs. Secondary camera, 4.3” vs. 7”, Dolby Sorround Vs. No Dolby Sorround, battery 1234MAH vs. 4000MAH. both of two has good phone, has differences. if you want better LCD,SOUND,camera,UI go for HTC DESIRE HD, if you want better higher memory,Secondary camera,powerfull battery go for samsung tab. guys you know android OS is easily eating battery need powerful battery. Gudluck HTC DESIRE HD AND SAMSUNG TAB USERS.
[deleted post]Hi Peter
Don`t buy SGS i9000. I have the Omnia 2, it freezes on internet, has poor connectivity and other minor issues. Although the i9000 has a faster CPU (1G ), the unit still has similar problems. I think Samsungs phone software technology needs to improve a bit more!
I have been researching the DHD for quite sometime now. This is an impressive performer. I have personally tried the Desire which is comparable to my Omnia 2. The Desire`s internet connectivity and performance beats the Omina 2 hands down! My only concern is it`s battery life. For some reason DHD has gone for a smaller capacity battery. I admit there may be no perfect phone, but DHD is pretty close. Will ditch my Omnia 2 for the DHD soon!Good luck mate.
