This 'cell' gives a new meaning to the term 'pancake sized phone'. I won't hold something like this next to my face even if I can get it for free ! Then I might just as well make a phone call from my 7in Samsung cell phone tablet :-)
Checked out HTC DHD today for form and surprisingly, it looked and felt smaller to hold than the HD2. Need an alternative to my IP4 which I like but enjoy the flexibility of android and tend to flip between IP4 and my X10 at the moment. I believe it is as good as the Desire and more, especially as a multimedia device and watching movies.
In short, to all the haters, if you don't like it, don't buy it.....SIMPLES! Don't hate on here, no one is interested.
I will never buy a HTC phone again. HTC Desire is unable to keep a stable 3G-connection, and according to the review at TechRadar http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/htc-desire-hd-717295/review?artc_pg=9 they still have not fixed this fatal problem on Desire HD and it will most likely be the same fatal problem on Desire Z. HTC suck!
"We had a few issues with data connection though - on some occasions the phone would look like it has full signal but then you'd realise that those bars wouldn't change and you can't get any data - it was actually frozen, and we have no idea why."

Will wait for another killer.
vei, 25 Oct 2010then u think I shouldn't buy it?i didn't say that but speaking for me YES I changed my mind after reading the article about google s road map about android. I'll wait for december for a new htc phone wearing android 3.0. and maybe has 1.2Ghz cpu.
As google announced the 3.0 Android which'll come out late this year and 3.5 Android which'll come out early 2011, is it logical t buy this phone ??
keep in mind that most probably it wont be upgradeable cause 2.x platform changes to 3.x
I have my Samsung Galaxy S and it performs really good. I guess your SGS has its specific problem, mine has no major problem at all. Its body is from plastic but the screen and camera lens cover are made from GORILLA GLASS (scratch proof glass). You couldn't underestimate SGS, it's the best smartphone to date. And if you're complaining about the battery of SGS, well, I could say that it's a user's fault. you don't even have the knowledge on how to optimize your battery. my SGS lasts for 2-3 days before battery gets drained. I use it everyday for WIFI (minimum of 6 hours), text messaging, calling and gaming. BTW, its froyo update will come on kies merely this november. So we'll see which is better...and probably the BEST...
PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT DEFEND THIS PHONE IF YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE ONE. OK?
Desire HD will be very heavy indeed with such a huge battery. But at least I can leave the charger at home . . . I wonder if the 7in tablet from Samsung is not more suited if I have to carry a 200gram + device. Definitely not your 'Johny Bravo' cellphone.
0v0, 25 Oct 2010All HTC DHD owners. I have a very good news for you about the battery.
I just contacted ( M... moreThe new battery is pricy.
I am trying to decide to stick with BB Bold or move to HTC and my only concern is the battery life.
In the below link is , 1 of the best HTC DHD reviews ever seen:
Please, check it & you will not regret.
The worse thing in HTCh DHD is : the speaker. It is terrible....
All HTC DHD owners. I have a very good news for you about the battery.
I just contacted ( Mugen=power batteries company )and after asking them , they informed the following :
( the HD battery is under processing at the moment,
will release on the end of Nov, the model no is HLI-DESIREZSL/XL. it should be over 3000mAh for the big one )--Seems there will be 2 types of battery capacity....coooooooooooool
This 3000mah will require an extra back-cover.
This Company is Excellent & trust-able. i bought from them :2400mah for my N900 & 3400mah for my brother's Galaxy S. i advise you to check their site & again, you will not regret buying from them.
This 'device' is more like a small tablet and less a cell phone ! I like it a lot. The only issue is the HUGE size. Is not practical to carry in a belt pouch like a normal cell. The best and most protective way is to have a small carry bag for it. Looks neat. It can be used as a cell phone and is not as big and heavy as the 7in samsung cell phone.
