HTC tried its best to hide ugle winmob with its htc sense and also tried its best to copy as much as they can from Iphone's UI. I was laughing my a.zz off when i saw music player, video playback in hd2. After all htc is taiwan (chinese) brand...all they know is copy/paste.
Forgot to mention...htc sense is pretty cool (indoor only). It is fast compare to other winmob but again ...once in a while winmob shows its color...delay, bugs etc. Hope they will correct weaknesses in US version.
Or wait till next june/july...i'm sure next iphone will be of same size with all alluminium unibody like macbook pro and may be one more software update.
Got a chance to play with one of my fren's hd2. The only thing impressed me is its huge screen. Other than that...its same usual winmob. Its still not par to iphone (3gs)'s speed & smoothness eventhough it got huge ram & processor power. I think its coz of power hungry OS winmob.
Browser does not support flash (forget about IE). Pic & video from camera also medicore. OF course...sun light legibility still poor. One more thing I noticed is the screen(glass)....its not same as in iphone despite having capacitive screen. It is finger print magnet and does not have anti-scratch resistant coating like in 3gs. Iphone's screen looks robust and you can feel it that it wont break or scratch easily. Regarding battery life....i can not comment (i used it for short period). Overall built-quality is good and thin & sexy. One more design flaw is camera popping way out of surface....should take extra care to protect camera lens.
