Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009I do read. That's the only thing the HD2 has over the Omnia 2. Did you read the specs????? I c... moreI read the spec and let me tell you that only reading a spec sheet is no way to judge a phone because a spec sheet canít tell you how good a phone is at doing anything..... but if thatís the way you tell if a phone is better or not, letís do it your way. After looking at the spec on gsmarena of the HD2 & Omnia II, this is what it came back looking like.
HD2 & Omnia II Tied at 17 things.
Omnia II is better at 10 things.
HD2 is better at 16 things.
So doing it your way the HD2 still comes out as the better phone.
1. Both are 2G quad band
2. Omnia II smaller in height and width but HD2 thinner
3. Both have 65k colors.
4. Both have 480x800 pixels.
5. Both have Accelerometer.
6. Both have speakerphone.
7. Both have 3.5mm audio jack.
8. Both have practically unlimited call records.
9. Both can take 32GB microSD cards
10. Omnia has DLNA but HD2 has Wi-Fi router so ill call it tied.
11. Both have HSCDS
12. Both have Bluetooth with A2DP
13. Both have the same camera spec so that is a tie.
14. Both have geo-tagging
15. Video is a tie
16. Both have radio so thatís a tie.
17. Both have 3D games so thatís a tie
Omnia II was better
1. Omnia II has 1900 band in 3G.
2. Omnia II weights less.
3. Omnia II has AMOLED so itís better there.
4. Omnia II has Handwriting recognition.
5. Omnia II has 16GB storage over the HD2 512MB storage.
6. Omnia II has the better HSUPA.
7. Omnia II has smile detection.
8. Omnia II has camera.
9. Omnia II has better Talk time.
10. Omnia II has TV out.
HD2 was better
1. HD2 has Capacitive Touchscreen.
2. HD2 has 4.3Ē screen.
3. HD2 has Sense UI that is better than TouchWiz 2.0 UI.
4. HD2 has Multi-touch input.
5. HD2 has Proximity Sensor.
6. HD2 has ambient light Sensor.
7. HD2 has WMA ringtones. not just mp3 and wav.
8. HD2 has 448MB RAM over the Omina II 256MB RAM.
9. HD2 has a class 12 GPRS so itís better there.
10. HD2 has a class 12 EDGE.
11. HD2 is wm 6.5, Omnia is only 6.1.
12. HD2 has 1GHZ the Omnia 800MHZ
13. HD2 has Threaded SMS.
14. HD2 has both xHTML and HTML.
15. HD2 has better standby time
16. Iíll say that HD2 has the upper hand for software because it will have HTCPedia has XDA web site to back it up Omnia II does not.
Does this have US 3G or will it be like the HD and come out with one later? Thanks
Only HTC Devices have Xda-Developers support - one of the biggest forums for windows mobile. You can have a "new" phone every day by flashing Roms.
With the Omnia you are stuck. You have what you have. It is a lot laggier and hell.....
And the main difference between both phones is:
HD2 supports WM7 Omnia DOES NOT.

Did you read the specs????? I can name a bunch of the things the Omnia 2 has over the HD2, like TV out for one, and better screen. You can check the reviews on that.
hi friends, I have a question- as i am a bulgarian and i would like to have bulgarian /egnlish dictionary on this phone. I wonder if it is possible to use bulgarian letters on the keyboard???
Everybody is complaining about battery without even having a look at specifications. It is 1230 mAh but 5 volts battery. Hence generating 6.5 WattHour. While Nokia N900 has 5.5 watthour battery. HTC has better battery.

Kahn, 11 Nov 2009why no one provide edge /gprs class 32 other than NOkia??Why do u need class 32 GPRS/ EDGE when you have 3G. Its just a matter of months before its on all networks.
According to you what difference does it make, I have tested download speed on both Nokia and my Asus through various sites and I hav always found my Asus faster even on same network.
Hi guys.....when i can get in india and through whom..because it will be available in grey market.can any body help..
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009and forgot to add, that WORST of all, GSMarena is being paid by HTC to support this particular... morewow how do u know that htc are payin gsmarena for good review, they hav it by themself for makin a good product and just cuz u hate htc doesnt mean they hav to pay to get good reviews. theyve got a point, it beats the iphone in everything, seriously i cant find anything iphone has over it. the app store maybe bigger, but winmo has loads more apps than iphone, just not in a central place, so all u hav to do to get better apps than iphone is not be lazy...and also the winmo app store will pile soon cuz apps are already made for it, just need to be approved, not completely made like other oses...
Adnan, 09 Nov 2009does anybody know when its gna come on O2 network in UK market????19th
Jorge Bueno, 11 Nov 2009No internal memory
Video call maybe ill be a problem, but not for me (no video call)This phone has 448mb or internal memory and is capable of using 32GB miniSD cards, so why do you need big internal storage?
When you buy a digital SLR it comes with no or very little internal storage. Do you see photographers complaining about that? Removable media is better way to go and here is why?
You say this phone has no TV out... well you can just put the memory card with the files that you want to see on your TV on in a device that has TV out.. And some of us can even put the memory card right in the TV.
You can also shear your data with other devices that donít have Bluetooth or wifi like digital picture frames, old PDAís, new DVD or blue ray player without having to hook to a PC first.
You can swap movies with a friend miniSD card enabled phone for fast file transfer because we all know movies are big and will take forever to send over Bluetooth when you are on the go.
And when the small battery in this phone is dead, online the phones that only have internal memory, I can still continue my work on a PC by taking the memory card out and putting it in the PC memory card slot.
No internal memory
Video call maybe ill be a problem, but not for me (no video call)
I'm about 9 hours away from having this device in my hands today. Will leave a first hand look of device after I get it today.........Cannot wat........
if the phone meets your needs, then its a gd phone. if the phone don't meet your needs, then its a bad phone. no phone is perfect. buy if you like it, else wait.
