WinMo would only be a pain in the head, if you would be to it a pain in the A$$...
The only reason i sold my first diamond was because it wasn't WVGA.. It was one of the best phones i owned ever.. I would've had it till now, awesome cooked roms!!.. So imagine how Widescreen had an influence.. The same reason people bought the Diamond 2, if the first Diamond had a WVGA, then there would be no Diamond 2, reason is, that all Diamond 2 software will be compatible with the first Diamond..
I work with coordinates on my phone i touch tiny pixels to draw a reference.. Now how would i do that on a capacitive screen.. Although i love capacitive screens and i was the most excited person to know about WinMo having a capacitive screen, smoooootttthhhh..
Now The HD with its latest WinMO 6.5 build and the Awesome cooked roms thanks to our Rom developers, i can't see why leaving it behind as yet..
I would consider the HD2 an upgrade to the HD if it didn't have the same way of upgrade from Diamond 1 to 2.. Although the Widescreen was a huge reason to upgrade from Diamond 1..
HD2 is like i said before "The minster of Gadgets".. But that doesn't mean that the HD has it's end infact its just starting to get interesting here with the latest 6.5 build's since Leo is running smoother on it than on the previous builds.. ;)
Just waiting to hear about Windows 7 and the multi-touch feature, hoping to have a software to active such feature on the HD..

Don't bother, I face people like him every day, here in the middle east, everything is about technology.. But we have minds that like what they see at first glance.. One they see my HD at first glance, they realize how lost they were all this time with their N97, or LGs or iPhones.. And then come up with the usual excuse!.. "Well i like the graphics and i like how we view images and upload to facebook and listen to music!".. Hehehe.. Don't bother Anthony.. We've helped alot, and people are happy with their hTC's and the sales are giving an uppercut hit on charts..

All you hear from these 2 guys Anthony & Dexter is " Touch HD is the best…..better than iphone….iphone for kids…Lol". If you guys already own one of those old Qualcomm 528 ghz processor HTC devices, then listen to them. They both are helpful in solving your problems. Winmob is always troublesome…no wonder you guys come here seeking help. But if you are one of those who is wondering what to buy and need help on deciding smart phones then DO NOT listen to them. They never tell you the truth and they do not understand that everybody has diff tastes. If you can live up with wasting time on tweaking, flashing and crashing then go for those old HTC devices. I'm not saying they are really bad. You need time & some tech knowledge to play around with them.
But if you are a pc users (esp MS office) and wanna try winmob phone then …just go for HTC HD2. This is awesome phone! I do not own any winmob (iphone user) at this time….may be getting this hd2 in future. But I played with them in the past and I know inside out. Hope this will help!

My battery drains fast even without using Bluetooth, WiFi or GPS. Is there any way to check if it’s faulty or not?
1. Charge the battery to 100%. 2. Disable from running or uninstall any 3rd party applications. 3. Disable Bluetooth. 4. Disable WiFi. 5. Enable flight mode 6. Set backlight to maximum settings. 7. In the power management settings, uncheck any option that would set the backlight to turn off. 8. Let phone stay idle for 1 hour and check battery capacity. 9. If there is a loss of 40% or more, then this means that battery is faulty and needs to be replaced.

not even on my first charge and when I was using my original rom did I get such bad battery life. as for bug fixes for the original rom they are all on www.htc.com under the support tab. there is even a rom update there. and under text support the is a "how to test to see if you have a defective battery". you just need to read more. and if you need help gave your self a name. give the details of each problem and I will gladly help you. unless you are just one of those people that just like to complain and don't really want to fix the problem.
Amin, 07 Oct 2009To Dexter and Anthony:
Hello dudes.since u two are professionals with wm phones i said i ask ... more1a. let me start by saying if you really want an upgrad and you have the money, the phone to buy is the HTC HD2. I gave a link in a post bellow where you can buy it now.
now on to the HTC HD...
1b. the only time you get a lag to talk about is if you are running 7 or more apps at the same time. the HD may have a slower CPU but twice the memory/ram for running programs. that memory/ram has to work together with the CPU. if you know how windows computers work you would know that they are only as fast/stable as there weakest link. program memory/ram is the weakest link in the I900,HD & HD2. But what should be noted is the ram in the HD2 is almost as much as the CPU in the HD but if you think that is bad you should notice the ram in the I900 is about half the ram or the HD which puts the I900 at the bottom of the weak link pack.
2. The HD can do everything and more than the I900 with the help of 3rd party apps & roms there is more support for the HD that way over the I900. (and every 3rd party app I have used so far was free.)
1c. If you put leo r5 on a HD you will get a bit more lag at times when you are running 3 or more apps at the same time because that interface was ment for the HD2 that has a bigger CPU and more ram. (but it looks so good and dose so much more so I'm running it anyway :-)
3.The only damage I have on my phone is to the screen protector, my 1year old bit my phone so it has teeth marks on the screen protector. Because my phone is in a silicon skin the body still looks like new. I did not change the screen protector because if the 1year old gets her hand on it she will just bite it again. Hope this info was helpful to anyone that wanted to know.
This must be the worlds most useless device. Several months of living with it has caused extreme misery due to its slowness, freezing, constant malfunctions, hopeless touchscreen interface, plus battery life of 5 hours maximum. Thats 5 hours if you dont use the device and keep all applications shut down - if you have any apps open or dare to use the device the battery dies after 2 hours or even less. Finally in my experience HTC have no interest on sorting out their problems...if you buy one will be on your own.
Dexter Morgan, 07 Oct 2009With all do respect Nick, Im really not interested in getting the HD2 yet, Need more to convin... moreIf you think your old Hd is old school and does everything wat you wanted ...then no need to go for HD2. I dont own HD but i've played with it. It lags big time in comparison to iphone. Its nowhere near Iphone's smoothness....and mind you..iphone just got 600mhz processor....it goes like rocket.
May be its due to aging win OS, or may be due to resistive screen or may be due to processor power...watever reason, HD is slow. Now dont reply me with all those great stupid features wat winmob can do and iphone can not. I know all and tired of that. Iphone is just simply the best phone. It's fast, easy and does everything wat it's supposed to do without any hiccups. Wat else u want??
But this new HD2 is different for 2 reasons. 1ghz processor & capacitive screen. I've seen some videos of HD2...its as smooth as iphone.

Doesn't mean if it had a 1ghz under th hood there that its an iphone killer.. iPhone was never alive comparing features to be killed by a WinMo.. Go get the HD2 and then realize that we experienced 90% of the features on the HD or the 2008 Diamond.. I'm thinking my HD will stay outstading until WinMo 7 and just hoping to upgrade to that..

No secondary camera....not a deal breaker. I don't use it anyway. I will wait for a couple of months more and see user's review on its battery life before making purchase.
isnt ur HD's color peeled off or isnt its looks ruined.u experince none of these with omnia.
and theres another thing,the metalic frame of omnia and its build quality.the good flash on camera.DViX paler right out of the box n great video play back.on the other hand the graphics eye candies on HD is tempting!
its a real hard decision to make!
help me plz/
To Dexter and Anthony:
Hello dudes.since u two are professionals with wm phones i said i ask u this.Ive been using Samsung i900 omnia and have recently decided to change it for HD.i wanted to know what u two think.is it wise to do that?
by the way I know all the differences.one of the things that keeps me back the clock rate of HD's CPU which looses big time to omnia's.have u ever experienced lags or freezes or slow functions by ur HD?
every body else who has had a problem with his/her HD plzzzz fill me in.
Thanks in advance :)
