UzI, 21 Oct 2010I also faced this dilemma but have now ordered the Galaxy S it just 'feels' better for me.
... moreThe truth is obvious:
DHD is much much better than Galaxy S. The only this Galaxy S is better is it's internal memory: 8/16GB compared to DHD:1.5GB but this also doesn't make much deference since DHD has Memory Card slot up-to 32GB.
Then it comes to the buyers & his taste.

The screen on this is on the top half so when you use it landscape its awkward whiles the SGS its in the middle so its nice.

So at this time my DHD is faster than my brothers Galaxy. Galaxy with froyo 2.2 20/30% faster? let's see first then believe.

Actually according to benchmarks, Galaxy S with Froyo 2.2 should be around 20-30% faster than HTC Desire HD. Its GPU is definitely better than (also good) Andreno 205.
I've owned plastic mobile phones last 15 years, with no-problems at all. I know aluminium is the new black, aside from "cheap" feel I don't see any build faults in Galaxy S. And it is much lighter and a bit smaller.
I need to give HTC Desire HD another try or wait for GSMArena review (or any other detailing sonic quality, aside from any equilized dolby-subjective non-sense) and if it'll be significantly worse, than there is no point (for me) of picking up this phone.
50% of usage will be as PMP, so my Seinheisser IE8 can get some usage.
musicalbox, 21 Oct 2010I am undecided which one to pick. I played with the Desire HD yesterday but I was dissapointed... moreI have a HTC DHD and my brother a Samsung Galaxy S. Both are good phones with their own plusses and minors. Yes the screen of the Galaxy is more vivid and sharper. The DHD is faster, yes this baby is f*cking fast...can not say it enough. The sound of the Galaxy is louder but the DHD sounds more pure (with Dolby enabled it has a suburb sound). The DHD camera makes better pics than the Galaxy. The build quality of the DHD is by far better than Galaxy. Accu-life time at the moment: Galaxy 2 days (phone is 3 month old), DHD more than 1 day (5 days old). Maybe battery life of the DHD can be reinforced after a few recharges. I have safer feelings with a aluminium DHD in my pocket than a plastic Galaxy.
I am undecided which one to pick. I played with the Desire HD yesterday but I was dissapointed with the screen.
Now I'm thinking about taking Samsung Galaxy S, I don't mind it's "plasticky", it has better performance, (fixed) Android 2.2 soon and its screen is much much better. Also, audio quality of Galaxy S can't be matched by current phones, and it is a big plus for me.
Any reason why to pick HTC Desire HD instead?

If you want a smaller phone with QWERTY, then choose the Nokia E7.

I am terribly confuse between This &Nokia E7!!!!!
Especially when today got the fresh news about how Nokia will improve their OS ( Symbian^3 ) and will make it powerful.....

Reasons to choose htc desire hd:
1.Much faster wifi 3x faster than hd2
2.Much higher resolution video & camera
3.Significantly more memory (RAM) More than 30% more RAM
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2010HTC Desire HD battery isn't bad, only HTC is not exaggerated by entering numbers as a company ... moreDo you have a problem with reception? Is your DHD's reception the same or less than your previous cell phone?
Example use for online, phone call 10mins+ (same time) can last for 1day+ is normal, if 1day also cannot ... is really bed.
think to buy phone... but like difficult to choice. Anybody help? only prefect htc, black berry ... look for video call phone with function
Dzifa, 21 Oct 2010HTC battery system is very bad, though a good phoneHTC Desire HD battery isn't bad, only HTC is not exaggerated by entering numbers as a company like Samsung. The Galaxy S has a standby time of 600hrs and 750hrs (2g) says Samsung. My brother has one and after 2 days his battery is dead at normal use. 600hrs? haha by never, maybe 300 at non use. Samsung is way far to optimistic, HTC isn't. My DHD battery last now more than a day at normal use, i think it will be better after several chargings. And about the build quality: my Desire HD is much better build then that Galaxy S plastic thing of my brother. DHD is a great phone, and those who are negative toddlers here: say what you want, i know better cause i have one.
