Initial reactions are good. Phone looks and feels nice, set-up and software update slick, sync and any kind of pc type stuff all simple, easy and automatic....SWEET!
But then the problems start to show their face....
No ring tones an issue cos all the included ones are super-toss!! All the alarms and txt tones are lame, and too subtle and quiet - Barely hear them in my pocket. No file explorer. Easy set-up rapidly becomes ZERO options to change anything!! As an example...my phone connects as a bluetooth audio device to my car stereo, but not as a phone! The only options for bluetooth in the settings are "on" or "off". Can't turn off visibility, can't delete a paired device or set it as a hands free or audio device, can't slect auto connect...just "on" or "off". Sort it out Microsoft!!!!!!!
Now this is really all software issues so about the fone...
Screen not as accurate as it could be resulting in typos followed by seven presses to then highlight the word in and correct it!!
Battery life ok but if you a heavy user, carry your charger!
Picture and processor etc fine. Net through wi-fi very slick and browser works well. Nothing amazing.
Win7 tiles are good but would prefer an extra side page with folders to organise stuff rather than the massive list. More customisation too would be good eg change pictures of tiles, resize tiles, etc
Overall a good fone and I like the general ease and quick use of the software for messaging etc but A LOT of basics missing from OS. BIG UPDATE NEEDED NOW PLEASE!!!

Simon Grech, 25 Mar 2011I own the HD2 for over a year and i never managed to transfer a single file through bluetooth.... moreI agree with you. The HD2 phone is super easy to use, beautiful screen and pictures, but freezes too much. If it could work a little faster and fix the freezing, it's perfect. SO EASY! I was offered the HD7 in exchange (after another freeze) and CANNOT deal with WP7!!!!! Send it back after trying to figure it out for a few hours!

Please Please Answer this question.Because windowsphone 7 did not meet my needs.
I am very regret for buying it,I do not advise anyone to buy it unless it is seen as a device by computers in order to shift the data between them as HD 2.
junulrik, 11 Apr 2011When HTC HD7 was released last year I was skeptical about the unit due to a lot of limitations... moreI agree 100% with your comment that htc hd7 would be a best phone to use in near future....

I'm from Israel and acquired htc hd7 I wanted to know how can download games and how to use ... moreHello...my friend, you must download in your pc a program name it zune. Hd7 you can not use it as mass storage device, so the only way is to use zune, wich one is dificult and not very useful, since you can only upload videos, music or photos.
For games you have to go to market place in your phone or to xbox app, you must know that in market place you dont have a lot to download in this moment and free apps are very simple and few available...
