Been using this phone for a little over 2 years now. Still loving it. Running a build of american android. Never had a freeze up or crash. Unless i was stupid and put a nightly on there. IMO...its the best 450 dollars i have spent on a phone. You have to realize that this phone...is still thinner than others made today. The screen size of this phone is just NOW popular in high end phones today. I forsee me using this phone for another 2 years.
Good build quality from HTC
Great video playback
Good alternative android choice
Great screen size.
Battery life for me in android is about 2 days standby and roughly 7 hours talk time (3G) If i use 2G operators it goes to about 8.5 hours.
Good phone...I hope HTC releases a line of WP8 when it comes out. I was always a windows phone guy way back when it was called WinMo5. Had the HTC MDA. Android just offers more than 6.5 did. WP7 is killing it right now...post mango phones...i envy.

The screen may be off but the cellular radio is still being used to download that data at your preset download time.
The only way you would get that 490h is if you were to put the phone in Airplane mode, so just pay no attention to the posted stand by time. It’s unrealistic if you bought this phone to “USE” it.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2012battery - up to 490h ..? liers ... just 72 hours that's it lol, don't you know how to read? It says stand-by: 490h, that means battery lasts 490h without using the phone at all.

If it has garmin that is a plus for me because I use garmin nav map files
“USB Disk” I guess is better than nothing (which is what WP7 has to offer) but I can’t go installing software on every office PC I connect my phone to.
As for the outlook sync link you gave, that just is not enough.
See I use outlook for not just the contact list. I also use the calendar and task. And not every task or appointment in outlook is created by me. So I need them to be synced to my phone when they are created. Because I may not be by my desk when the set reminder time has arrived.
iPhone is getting better with every version.
But I still don’t think its really a “work” device for me.
So I’m still looking out for that WOW device. So far it looks like it is going to be a “W8 tablet” just hope that dose not turn out to be disappointing as well.
I am using HD2 since 1 year and i am using android MIUI rom on it without any problem. It works like its own OS. If anyone wants to install android on HD2 get MIUI laest version and load it. I try other android also but MIUI is best for HD2.
my marketplace on this incredible gadget is loaded enough to suite its abilities and free applications are also scarce

I happy that you are happy with your iPhone 4S but you
You gave me no details of how... more@Anthony...Sorry for late reply. I'm on the same boat…..not into games so much. I do have some 30-40 quality apps which suit my needs. Good thing about apple's app store is that it's very huge where there is always something for everyone. Tons of choices plus quality apps…unlike win mob or android apps. Regarding your queries:
1) Using iPhone as flash drive:
Diskaid- You can use iPhone as usb drive but you need to have this program in your computer.
Air sharing- It helps mount iPhone as wireless hard drive. Transfer files via wifi.
USB DIsk- This is the best option but you need to jailbreak. Btw, jailbreak for 4S is already out.
2) Sync with outlook - Pls read this link. http://www.technipages.com/iphone-sync-contacts-with-outlook-2007.html
My way - I'm mac user now and I use MS office a lot. So I do have mac version office including outlook. I synced my outlook to iPhone in little different way. First I synced outlook & apple's "address book". After that I synced address book to iPhone. This way all my contacts in outlook, address book & iPhone are all synced. And on the top of that iPhone 4s has 5gb "iCloud". I have synced to iCloud too for further backup.
3) Garmin apps - Apps store has tons of navigational apps including garmin but I do not know if it supports your city/country. I just use google map for simple navigation.
After using win mob, bb & android, I tell you that iPhone simply works. No hanky-panky…everything is straight forward. I am not here t to compare features or talk about what it can what it can not. As any other phone, it is not perfect phone …..does have limitation. It may not be as good as top end android phones spec-wise but it does the best from what it has. Most of other OS phones look great in paper only. When comes to action, half of their features simply do not work or clunky.
PS: Battery life is not bad….definitely better than hd2.
I've Android On my HTC hd2. Im having a problems making memory space . My phone can not even show any filing system. I want any effective file management system ASAP. I also have battery problems,battery hardly lasts more than 2hrs and I've to carry a wall charger.

zeal, 20 Jan 2012my phone was changed to android system 2.3.7 series, do u think it good to use it like that?
It’s your phone, not the guys/gals that post on gsmarena own. What ever you do to it that makes you happy is good.
Are you happy with it that way?
Installed nand android from SD. Works like a charm. The best way is to follow the instructions from jayceooi. Just Google search HTC hd2 android jayceooi to get the instructions and the rom.
