Anthony, 29 May 2011Android uses more power and windows. That is a known fact. If your ROM is not 3.14 upgrading ... morehow do you do the upgrade. will like to know that to help improve the battery life of mine thx
THe battery will last longer using windows but that OS sucks, so go for android but install it on the ROM not SD card that takes lots of battery consumption.
on ROM you will have a decent battery life.
by the way with Android the phone rocks big time

If your ROM is not 3.14 upgrading to 3.14 will improve battery life because 3.14 has better CPU power management and more efficient radio drivers . Among other bug fixes and software updates.
Other things you can do to save battery power is.....
Turn off Bluetooth & wifi when you are not using them.
Install “XT Hack Beta2” and use it to manually switch the phone from Auto 3G to GSM 2G which uses less power.
Also use it to turn on “Optimized batter life” for better hardware management.

anooby, 28 May 2011Can anyone tell me that if we flash the rom to android, does that unlock the device to any carrier?flashing the phone with an official HTC (factory unlocked) Windows mobile 6.5, NAND Android , NAND WP7 or COOKED windows mobile 6.5 will all unlock a carrier branded locked HD2. the carrier lock is in there ROM that is removed when you do a ROM change. you only get that lock back if you flash there ROM again.

Nand builds are faster than SD card builds and give better battery life IMO but choose whichever you prefer. I use live wallpapers, watch anime (using mobo player, awesome app), listen to music and surf net and still get a day of battery life

Anonymous, 21 May 2011Perfect phone. I bought it 1,5 years ago and still thing that there is no better phone on mark... moreI am using Android (Desire HD ROM with Sense UI running on SD card) and it works just perfect but the only problem is draining the battery so much. Without using the phone (fully charged to 100%), after 5 hours I've got 50% battery remaining. This is a stark contrast of Windows 6.5 that after 5 hours without using it, I've got 97% of battery.
