The battery tech has caught up yet... That's going to be an issue until it catches up... For my HD2 I just had to buy an extended battery for it...
Dan, 11 Nov 2010Hey, Guys i am planning to get the HTC HD7 please Can anybody give me a answer, Is it a good p... moreIf you want WP7 then buy the HD7... I have the HD2 and doesn't see much difference in the two?? I'm planning on waiting at least a year or two to see what WP7 will look like then?? It's just not enough to make me buy... Also I don't like the box look of the UI either.... WP7 also has alot of limitations than my HD2... Too me the HD2 is still better... Right now I have HTC Android Sense HD on my HD2... I can run both WM and Android on the HD2... Also I saw a video of WP7 runnung on the HD2 from China Xda... So it's just a matter of time before WP7 ROM makes it to the HD2.......
I'm looking at what android is going to bring to the table in 2011... Also looking at the Sony PS3 phone as well... That's another reason why I'm not jumping to WP7, I don't have an Xbox so Xbox like on WP7 does me no good.... Also I think you have to have a Zune pass to get music on your phone???? If so I don't want to sign up for that.....
I plan on going into ATT and TMO to play with WP7... Just to see it up close.....
I expected it to have the 1,5 GHz processor.
The only limiting factor is windows mobile 7.
I think I will go for dell's streak instead.

all i want to know is whether this 4.3 inch BEAST comes with vibrating ringtones!
Hey, Guys i am planning to get the HTC HD7 please Can anybody give me a answer, Is it a good phone or not ?
battery life on the hd7 suck!!!
i did a little test, i fully charge the phone and i dint touch it for 4 hours when i check it,it had 50% of battery left
gps, wi-fi, bluetooth off
thats the only problem that im having whit this phone right now...
this or samsung focus? pro: better display, con: typical samsung plasticky crap finish (although it looks a lot better than the galaxy s's).
When i said about a smartfone being defined as having dedicated graphics chip i was joking with you and dontnojoe is also you as well cause your tracked by your ip address here on gsmarena.
You do seem to think i have an i-phone but i have never owned an apple product in my life.Always been a stalwart symbian/nokia fan and windows 2003 thru to windows 6.5..
this phone is so beautifully crafted it makes me forget all its shortcomings.
but will the s/ware cd that comes with this run on my mac? it better, or else i'll be very cross >:(
brynn, 09 Nov 2010Come on i need your help here if you are the expert.
I have windows 7 laptop and it has des... more"A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic feature phone"
i believe the HTC HD7 more then falls under this bracket.
all the info on windows phone 7 and a dedicated section on HTC HD7.
As a developer i can tell you that developing apps for this OS is easier by far then the annoying android and the restricted iOS, so given a few months this fone will be supported more then any.
Zune is massive in the States hence the Zune players being in its 4th generation prior to the WP7. Its music, video and radio capability is as good as any people will find it unusual after an ipod experience but i wud say easier to navigate. The formats Zune(software) recognises goes along way past iTunes.
It has a store for media music videos and obvs apps so again competes with iphone excels against android.
It may not have drag/n/drop like android but zune does its purpose! symbian is dying as i wudnt say it sits in the market anymore next to android/wp7/iOS it is more a busy phone not SMART. sorry guys SYMBIAN just aint what it was proir to iphone making the market think.
Its sound is ok its Dolby sound does give it a better then expected quality and outload i havent noticed any problems compared to the iPhone 4 and Blackberry Storm i have here now.
Give it a chance! it is awesome and will be supported as much as anyother OS as Microsoft will not leave this marketplace.
RAM monitors/clocks/stopwatches these are apps whihc are or will be available sooner rather then later!
Brynn do yourself a favour buy one! theres your help!!!
Another big concern is the poor battery but nokias n8 is doing fine so have htc/microsoft done massive optimisation under the hood making battery good for at least 12 hrs of heavy use etc..Thanks
Come on i need your help here if you are the expert.
I have windows 7 laptop and it has desktop gadgets ie sticky notes,cpu/RAM meters on the sidebar does wm7 have these as tiles.I use a stopwatch can i download one.What is this thing that all my multimedia has to come thru zune is it like locked that much like iphone junk
Can you give us a good website to get more on hd7 cause i have bought galaxy s from o2 and with no flash it annoying ME and want to swap for htc hd7..What about music out put and srs what about furure updates cause this thing is going to cost me £390 and need to know more and only have 2 days left before my 14 day exchange is up.
For you to put the distressing comments below does not help and have been using symbian since 2003 and the spv back in 2002 ..My last windows was touch pro2 and iam the only one in my area who likes windows but i understood how powerful it was..
COME IF YOUR THE EXPERT GET ON HERE AND PROMOTE AND HELP US..
Folk come on here for help and other peoples experiances and even tho samsung is bringing one out and would rather choose samsung than htc,htc has srs wow and that counts for me.
Htc does have poor tranducers and no matter what people pretend their speakers and mics are substandard..Cheers Brynn and yes of course i know what a smartfone is.
[deleted post]a smartfone is defined by having a dedicated graphics chip actually.

1 GHz ARM v7 "Cortex/Scorpion" or better processor
DirectX9 rendering-capable GPU
256MB of RAM with at least 8GB of Flash memory
Accelerometer with compass, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and Assisted GPS
5-megapixel camera with an LED flash
FM radio tuner
6 dedicated hardware buttons - back, Start, search, camera, power/sleep and Volume Up and Down.
No where does it say it must have removable storage! but if ur not thick you would no that the Micro SD slot is hidden beneath the lower part of the back so u saddos who want 400 dvds on ur PHONE can expand to 32gb why!!!
joe, 07 Nov 2010Samsung with Windows Mobile 7 has a card slot for memory up to 32GB... HTC doesn't....thats wh... morethe one thing i dont understand is what you need a 32 gb memory card for? to watch movies or do you have that much music that you need such a big memory card? because everybody knows thta any smartphone that being samsumg, htc, lg etc. does not have the battery power to watch multiple movies or is able to withstand 24 hours while listening to music. and when it comes to speed and performance, the bigger memory doesnt exactly help. htc doesnt fail because it has a 10000x better touch screen than any samsung.
