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;
All those asking for secondary camera, android does not support video calling yet so there is just no point. Please don't say stupid stuff like "wake up htc where is the secondary camera". If you don't know anything shut the f*** up
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010Duhh..htc, where is the secondary camera...?Bleah... I've had a phone with a 2ndary camera.
Used it once... I'ts more gimmick than usable.
Glad it DOESN'T come with one.
Besides that looks like a nice phone and something people who were originally wanting HTC Desire phones will probably move upto.
Battery less than original desire!? With a bigger screen this is gonna be 2 or 3 charges a day!! I wanted it but this has put me off. Im not so sure now!
how come this phone does not have secondary camera for video call while the desire z have one?
NI, 16 Sep 2010Sony is not the owner of SLCD.SLCD belongs 51% to samsung and 49% to sony and the factory is i... moreBlimey, someone who knows what they are talking about :D
Yes it is a joint project between the two companies for the SLCD screens - personally I prefer the colour and contrast of AMOLED but looks like only Samsung phones will still use them, I could be wrong :/
What ordinariness this phone! There is no innovation on it which is just bigger than the first Desire but the battery is quite small. After the model Desire, HTC has just made ordinary models. I finally chose Samsung Galaxy S.
This device will run Android. It's the sister product (the HTC Gold/HD3) that will run with Windows 7. Through working in the industry i know that this will be the biggest selling HTC so far.
Battery seems to be too small for a buff device.. interested to see the actual results..
