Hello Frns.... and owners of Desirous HTC Desire HD... I have been using this phone for the past 1 week and would like t mention my broad views on the phone.
Feature- Proximity Sensor & Vibrations
Benefit- The phone display goes blank when you are on a call and have your phone near your ears. Since this is a full touch phone, this feature prevents from any accidental touch of screen buttons that might hinder your call. The vibration feature works when you are not holding your phone near your ear but in hand. As soon as the call gets connected, the phone vibrates. This feature will help those who face problem with phone accidentally getting connected to someone and they pay unnecessary call charges.
Feature: 8 MP Camera with Auto Focus & Flash
Benefit: Lets you capture high quality image. I was really in a fix between Xperia ARC and DHD, but DHD scored on the feature that you can zoom in whle taking picture and you do not have to reduce you MP's as like in Xperia ARC and the double flash just adds to the armor of DHD
Feature: Auto-Prediction Keyboard
Benefit: Normal auto prediction keyboard only suggests a word, but in DHD, this feature corrects the word and takes a closely resembled word. This lets you type with ease without worrying about words and believe me this feature lets you type with amazing speed, which is even better that qwerty keypad phones.
Feature: HD Recording
Benefit: Lets you capture the best moments of your life. This feature is being used as USP in many digital cameras and camcorders and you have an upper hand there.
Besides these you have a touch screen which is scratch resistant, Dolby and surround sound features. And the music the sound on earphone is just astonishing when you turn up the bass booster ( i am using a Sony earphone of Rs 1400/-. Just love the sound.
The only fault is packing so many astounding features in a phone which is packed with just 1230 Mah battery. however disabling every not required feature saves your battery but still you will feel the pinch of less power. That too with 8 MP camers and HD recording, you would have wished, for a bigger battery.
