High Tech, 05 Nov 2009Ordered this and waiting to get next week. This is the best phone to date no question. I also ... moreI also have the Omnia 2 and am having problems with it. How does HD compare in terms of smoothness, and functions? Omnia will not send emails which is a real pain. I need office, and a good camera. AS you have both handsets can you enlighten me further on the merits of the HD which you seem to prefer?
Muhsinoglu, 05 Nov 2009Hi All will HTC HD2 be able to be upgradable to Winmo 7.0? Regards, Well, it doesn't have to be as you can probably get it from some 3rd party developer...
Ordered this and waiting to get next week. This is the best phone to date no question. I also have the Omnia 2 which is a Great phone as well, but the HD2 is better right now. People talk about what this phone doesn't have, but tell what phone has everything you want. NONE!!!! If this phone meets your need buy it, if not buy the phone that fit your needs, don't bash the HD2. In the end the HD2 Right now is the best hands down.
When WM7 comes out next year, I'm sure another phone will come out better than the HD2. A year after that another phone will come out. It's just the way of the world. No phone you will keep for life. I plan on keeping the HD2 until a phone comes out to meet my needs. The things I want is 1080P recording and viewing for movies. I use that at home with my Blu-ray player and HD TV's. Also want internal storage of at least 64GB to 128GB. Until then the HD2 will DO!!!!
Will keep my Omnia 2 for music and TV out function when I need it. Tried the TV out last night just to see, and IT Looked Great!!!
Even though u have video call.. But most of the time will make voice call more than video call... If you said whats the point in getting so costly mobile without video calls... Then how about iPhone???
This phone is the best for this moment XD...
why are all the good phones not available in the 850Mhz - the only frickin 3G frequency(so far) in canada???the whole country!! eg; N900, Droid, HTC HD2.
Im sure it has to do with someone not making enough profit to bother!! lets make canada's 3G frequency 2100!!!
we are waiting same phone with 8 or 10 megapixel camera.when we can buy it?
whats the point in getting so costly mobile without video calls, Man why dont you wait for another master peace from htc to be released soon.

Guys..., 05 Nov 2009About this comment: '1)NO video call 2)NO TV-out 3)NO digital compass 4)NO 16million c... morehaha, love ur comment but u forgot a few things, 1) it DOES have a digital compass (its one of its selling points) 2) the speaker is great! HD had a great speaker and i dont expect this one to be any less. 3) lets not forget all the features this phone has that no other phone does, not gonna mention them, too many to list. i just pity the fools who cant afford this beauty and complian by bashing. me, i will enjoy it to the max once i own it.
To every one that thinks this phone is no good...
Ask your self this... Can the phone I have now do better than the HD2 in every way? If the answer is yes, I would love to know the Brand and model.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2009where is the tv tuner pal / ntsc like chinese phones or dvb t free view digital tuner like so... moreTo Sa%D aka Anonymous... It is in china where it is supported ….
AT&T don’t even have good 3G you want to add TV and more to there headache?
You buy the Chinese phone if you like them so much. And leave to other phones to the people that want them because it has what they need.
What phone do you use now, can you answer that?
where is the tv tuner pal / ntsc like chinese phones or dvb t free view digital tuner like some chinese phones ?

6)NO 16 GB internal storage
7)ONLY 5MP camera
8)NO HD recording
9)NO 5.1 channel surround sound (even virtual doesn't exist)
10)NO DNSE 2.0 speakers (or Dolby enhanced speakers)
11)TOO small of a battery for such large screen (device=battery drainer)
14)NO Android (but that is people's preference)
15)NO REAL multitouch as it still runs on WM 6.5 (HTC shoulda waited till WM 7.0)

1. I Don't Care, never used it, don't know anyone to use it, and I know a lot of people.
2. I Don't Care.. maybe used it once in my entire life.
3. No that important to me, would have been nice though.
4. I am starting to get frustrated about everyone talking about that stupid 16M screen.. HUMAN BEINGS CAN NOT EVEN SEE THAT MUCH COLERS. There is hardly any difference. And please don't be one of thses people that wants to be able to say: 'i am so cool i have 16M color screen'.. It's just failure.
5. AMOLED? I hear it is better for you battery, but it has only been used in samsung phones if I remember correct. Could have been nice, but that is just a minor detail.
6. So? 8GB is already hard to fill up.. Yes there are some people that have 80.000 songs, but imo that is just fail. Have 50 that you really like, it is enough. Again, like the 16M color, this is just something to 'act cool about'. 8GB is just enough, with a extra memory card of 16 you have nothing to worry anymore.
7. Only 5MP camera? iPhone and BB have not even passed the 3.2MP, and even with these you can make nice pictures. Believe me, 5 MP is ENOUGH. Again something to act cool about..
8. HD recording? Since when is that standard? There are like less than 5 phone's that can do that? It would be nice though, but really you can not use this as a 'negative' point of the HD2, because it is not standard yet.
9. Would be nice, I agree with you. It is very important to me, and my current BB Bold has one of the most impressive speakers ever.
10. I don't know what to say about this..
11. You are right about that. I don't know how long the battery will last, so I can not say if the HD2 is good or bad in that area. But good battery life is VERY important.
12. What is this XPERIA X10? Please... it has a fine way of handling media.
14. The first time I am 100% behind you. If only this had been Android.. nuff said.
15. I can not say a lot about this, looks like you have more experience in WM 6.5 etc. But I am 100% sure I saw some kind of Multi-touch in all the video's about the HD2, so it does have (fake?) Multi-touch.
16. I am in Europe :D
17. It's same size as iPhone. And still the screen is 0.8-inch bigger. It's magic.
18. I can see your point, but I would not call it 'ugly'.
19. I have radio in my car, at home, etc. I don't need it on my mobile phone.
Some interesting points, but a lot of (in my opinion) not important comments. The biggest drawback is WM6.5, although it is not like it's the devil. Maybe future updates will make it much nicer. Still, android would have made this phone the KING.
And for the love of god, please stop wanting 100GB and 16M screens just to say to your friends 'I am cool because I have 100GB'. If I would be your friend, I would say: 'So? You only use 2GB? FAIL!"
My 2 cents, this is a great phone!
Acry, 05 Nov 2009Says the guy whose name is Anonymous.Oh really! So would you plz let me know if Acry is your true ID and you are known with that name in all parts of the world?! That's exactly proves my point, I can name myself whatever I want and there isn't even any point in using the same name here because others can do the same and use my name, who can stop them? what what is the point of using the names if people are just ranting against each other? and you're not better than them because you ignored my message and decided to stick to what pleases you more! good luck with that kid!
Is it just me or others feel the same thing? I'm really getting sick of those keep repeating this style "no x, no y, no z...."! Would you please shut up?! between those NOs there are twice more YESs that you ignore! They are doing the same on all comments sections for SE, HTC, Samsung, etc. What the hell is wrong with you?! Why are you acting like 10yo kids?!
I'm starting to believe that manufacturers have hired people to spam these comments' pages. I would like to see the day GSMA requires authentication for accepting comments. Yes, plz do that and stop this mess!
