2 weeks into using the phone and it has all the goods to surpass andriod with its fast easy to use, uncluttered useable ui.
To date, no freeze ups or slow downs, compared side by side to android phone, loads similar apps faster and runs netflix movies with no problems...Not a day has gone by that I needed a charger to save my phone at the end of the day.
The HTC hub and windows market are loaded with free apps as well as paid apps
Xbox live games a plus as well.
Fm Stero, dolby, wi-fi this phone is awesome so far!!!
Facebook interface is awesome! 10X better than any I have seen to date, Twitter- Weather Channel-You Tube, all free and blazing fast with updates

It can be challenging and does require some out of the box thinking at times.
If you don't wanna transfer hotmail contacts, simply create a hotmail account that has no contacts and make that account your primary account. The phone supports multiple email accounts from different email providers and since my contacts are synched with google, this is pretty much what I did to ensure that my hotmail and gmail accounts didn't overlap.

If not, it will go to vibrate if you hold down the volume button until the volume bar goes all the way down...OR if you tap the ringer icon on the upper right hand corner of the phone while reducing the volume...this is surprisingly easy to do accidentally, by the way.
Ringer gets set to silent randomly, I'm not changing the settings, my friend is having the same issue with her HTC HD7 phone, anyone else?
I dont know what Microsoft was thinking to do such a mobile, immagine: you can't connect your phone to PC as mass storage, you can't connect it using windows divice mobile center, YOU CAN'T SYNC CONTACTS WITH OUTLOOK you have to import contacts in hotmal from outlook (200 contact Max) than synchronise your phone with your hotmail. Immagine you can't receive Blue tooth from other HTC windows 6 phone or any other phone, Immagine you can't install CAB files and more and more and more of stupid things microsoft did.
i wish i didn't change my HD2 to HD7, the HD2 was much better.
Go to YouTube and search for "Future of Screen Technology" by TATMobileUI. You'll be surprised by the innovation in UI these people had. BTW, they made the UI for Android Froyo.
Someone at Symbian should see that.
You can't choose your own mp3 songs as a ring tone. What were they thinking? Obviously they were thinking about money. Because you'll have to download ringtones.
I live in germany, i didn't have that much of faith in HTC, but this phone is incridible, its awesome fast, love every bit of it
most features of this phone are good, but the ui is very ugly which prevents me from buying it...
The HD7 is really a great phone to use.apart from the really limiting battery life, easily fixed with a portable charger, everything works great.the keyboard feels great and typing is a breeze with such a large virtual keyboard. Highly recommended. Another problem is the fingerprint attractive screen with can be solved with a screen protector. So its a great phone overall.
Why would you want this phone???
No memory card slot, poor battery and all the limitations that windows 7 has its like the first iphone all over again.
My roommate owned the HTC HD2 and i didnt like it that much as i owned a Android. But just bought HTC HD7 and it blew me away. This phone is expectionally good. MS OFFICE apps like Word, Power Point, One Note... even OUTLOOK. Microsft has improved its MarketPlace (for Apps) also. The new live tiles display is also nice. It will take you a day or 2, to get use to the new concept of Live Tiles as Homescreen but is worth it.
