I am using this for 2 months....
Advantages- awesome display, very fast INTERNET browsing, camera & music quality is very good, comfortable weight, navigation system good, call quality good, accelerato motor works fine, good touch sensitivity, overall set response is good.
Experienced Disadvantage- 1)most common problem is with the browser...say, you r using INTERNET explorer. the touch screen hangs frequently, like it doesn't response to selective touch..you have to scroll the page to awake it....my frnd sold his HD2 for this problem..
2) camera unable to capture movable object even a single person...if the person moves slightly, your picture will cm blur.
3)media player unable to play the all songs continuously because you cant select multiple songs at a time to play...so select one song, hear it, then close media player and select another.....the built in music player has a bad ass library system.
4) you cant use equalizer with out head phone and once you disconnect the head phone, your equalizer settings will be lost...you have to set your equalizer each time you connect headphone...
5) no stereo radio.
6)need charge very frequently (per day)
7)No screen cover, you have to buy one....every other mobile company provides screen cover with touch screen set.
8)you cant rearrange the files in your memory card, that means you cant select multiple files at a time...(say, moving pics or music from one file to another)... you have to connect it to PC to do the job...thats irritating...
Now its your decision.
style, 15 Sep 2010 Specifications of HTC HD3 4.5-inch WXGA Super AMOLED multi-touch display 8 megapixel cam... moreFrom what I heard the HD3 will be called the HD7... Also WP7 doesn't support an SD Card... I heard the HD3/HD7 will have 32GB of storage not a SD Card slot...
After using this phone for 3 months. I have flashed to many different cooked roms. None of the roms seem to be stable. I guess Window mobile is just not stable period. I regret buying this damn phone!!!! sigh

arjun, 13 Sep 2010i want to buy phone but i want to know which has good internet speed out of these three phones... moreI think the Nokia n8 will be faster. Reason the HSDPA (Download Speed of a 3g modem) is 10mbps, while that of the HD2 is 7.5mbps.
Personally, i am waiting for the N8 cos of this particular reason.

I know that Android can be installed on this phone. When you boot the phone (switch it on), can you choice between which OS you want - so switch between Windows and Android? If I do get this phone and installed Android, I would like the option of switching back to Windows too. I would stick on Android due to the games and other apps.
Have any of you had any problems since installing Android - maybe like the camara, camcorder, radio not working? Maybe some other feature not working?
How do you owners find the battery life? How often do you charge it? Finally if any of you have purchased an extended battery, what are your views on it?
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2010It is nice to be able to have Android in the HD2. At least, you can really try the Android.
... moreI agree... I tried Android on my HD2 before I sent to HTC for repair... Android was okay, but I like WM better... I will most likely pass on WP7 right now... Been reading about WM8 that's due in 2012... It's said to be totally redone, and is to be customizable???
I will keep my HD2 as long as it comes back from HTC fully repaired... Still not happy with HTC... Will look at buying another model (Samsung, Sony, etc) for my next phone...
Also found info on a ARM A15 chip that will bring 2.5mhrz speed and full 3D (video, video Com calling, etc) to the smartphones... This chip is said to be on phones in late 2011 or 2012.......... WOW.........
