With battery 1230 mAh ,this beast will be a BRICK BRICK ,BRICK or STONE by EVENING .EVO 4G with with 1500 mAh wont last more than 9 to 10 hours on moderate use.My friends use to laugh at my HD2 with 1250mAh for twice charging in a day.
Slcd and new processor could hardly improve batt life by 1or 2 hours.total 8 to 9 hours of moderate use. After that it will be BRICK OR STONE. RUN RUN RUN FOR CHARGER.
Shame on HTC ,they did it purposely so that we all be compelled to buy their extended or additional batteries.
Htc =money sucker
Guys have CHARGER in one pocket and mobile in another.
Looking at the pictures, there's a lil round thing on the the phone. Located on the top, could that be a front facing camera? I have a k800i, and the front facing camera looked like that
I used HTC HD2. HTC battery back up was pathetic, i use to charge mobile twice a day and Camera was average thou it was 5 MP camera.
I always prefer NOKIA for its hardware, battery backup and easy OS.
I am sure, if Nokia join with Android, Nokia will be back with bang in Smartphone race.
Any day NOKIA rocks.
Man, is anybody else tired of the same old "sense ui" crap?? I know I am!!!
Why all of u talking about battery battery...
SLCD use 4-5 times less battery than amoled and other displays..and CPU is more energy-saving..
Make no mistakes guys, the HTC Desire HD is coming with a Super LCD. Just have a look at the following address for confirmation: http://www.htc.com/www/product/desireHD/overview.html
View the official video (to be more precise at 43 seconds). Is it a coincidence? Mentioning the 4.3" Super LCD at 43 seconds of playback.
HD2 Reloaded?? Most of the specs seems the same, same screen size, even same battery :P, im not saying its a bad thing, is just what people has been asking, better camera (hd) and Froyo into our HD2, wich btw im running now, almost flawless.
I think I will stick with my I phone 4, HTC, Nokia, Samsung, etc, Product Development Teams, should make up their mind, so many new products are developed every year.
From the consumer's point of view, I am getting sick of continuously changing my device.
Htc Desire HD coming with SLCD
very goooooooooooood and how much is it ?
I relly need a large display and android OS it is the best phone of htc and I think the best phone in world
Just to clarify some facts.
The HTC DesireHD does have in fact an Super LCD.
Heres an introduction Video:
ALL, ALL, ALL of YOU, that are complaining about Battery, STILL WITHOUT USING IT, YOU ARE JUST HATERS! AND LOSERS THAT ARE USING CRAP iPhone!!!!!
As soon as this Phone hits the Market I'm gonna buy it cuz this phone BLOWS away iPhone 4 (not to mention my old, sluggish iPhone 3G).
You have to recognize that Desire made a Revolution so this phone is BETTER than Desire so this will make EVOLUTIONARY REVOLUTION!!!
Until Mid October when We Will have this phone in our hands, Just Talk Haters!
Great Engineers ??? of HTC,for giving 1320 mhz battery. It will spoil HTC name and bussiness.
with this battery HTC may not stand long in International market.
Bloddy ! dont compare HTC with Samsung and LG etc..
HTC is far far superior
The battery is crap and it quite bigger than Samsung Galaxy S screen.
Hawk, 16 Sep 2010All those asking for secondary camera, android does not support video calling yet so there is ... moreandroid does support video calling..my galaxy s support video calling which runs android..even android motorola has video calling except htc..check your facts
All those complaining about the small battery read the HTC HD2 review it has the same battery and screen size but the review says battery life is great. I quote
"Surprisingly, battery life turned out very good. Battery performance was better than the iPhone 3G, for instance, even though Apple's smartphone has a slower paced CPU. The HD2 managed to make it for 2.5 days with Wi-Fi constantly on, taking some pictures with the inbuilt camera and listening to music. So, if you turn the Wi-Fi on only when needed and don't talk too much, you can probably expect the device to stay alive for a good 2-3 days before recharge.
Update: We managed to make a dedicated real life battery test of the HTC HD2 and the results turned out better than expected given the highly clocked CPU and the large screen. The HTC HD2 stayed up and running for good 52 hours connected to 3G network with the following usage pattern:
* 40 minutes of voice calls;
* 30 minutes of web browsing;
* 30 minutes of guided GPS navigation (CoPilot);
* 50 minutes of video playback;
* 2 hours of music playback;
