I've had this phone for about 3 days now and it is AMAZING, the UI is great and very quick the design of the phone is beautiful and it works amazingly. There is no doubt that there is an update coming in 2011 with the basics like copy + paste which will improve the system. Who ever said that symbol is batter is an idiot. I had a symbian phone for about 4 months and got incredibly bored and limited. Wp7 Market place is slowly getting a lot of good aps and the htc hub is a nice add on. The screen size is great and fits straight into my pocket. The screen is a great standard and compare it to blackberry screens or iPhone 3GS its amazingly clear
I love my htc hd7 and I'm glad I choose it Over Samsung omnia 7, Android and iPhone !! :)
In the "Organizing your day with WP7" section you mentioned that you can't side-swipe to switch agenda and day in calendar; however this is not true, you can switch by side-swiping over the title (where is says agenda/day).
There is also an HTC full featured youtube app that is worth a mention.
Hey Guys, Im India i purchased HD7 Yesterday im unable to access the Market Place. if i try it's says Marketplace not available in you country/ region. what's the solution , kindly tell me guys
I think it is a really easy and functional phone to use. It is fast and has some entertaining features. The phone comes preset to a dim screen setting so if you turn up the brightness, it looks at least as good as other phones.

Some people are just too much. A smartphone cannot replace a laptop, much more a desktop. I am not a businessman, but I would rather use my laptop or desktop computer when doing heavy web browsing, blogging, documentation, projects, and emails. How much more if I am a businessman?
So what's the selling point of this device? It's big screen for watching videos? Is that the reason why people buy a smartphone? Last time I checked, a big screen is the selling point of HDTV's, not phones.
Let me tell you, THIS PHONE is the best and fastest smarthphone that i've even owned, and i've been a smartphone junkie since 2003
Let's be fair, if Nokia produced a phone with so many, many severe limitations and short-falls, there will be hell to pay. Funny enough when HTC, iPhone and others do it there is mild reaction, even praise. The anti-Nokia bias is really getting out of hand lately and should be addressed in forums like these. Hat off to GSM Arena who did just that when the first reviews of the N8, stating clearly that other reviewers were subjective and unfair.
Simply Disappointed !!
HTC is a very Good Hardware Manufacturer but Samsung has pushed it against the Wall this Time. OMNIA 7 is like 300 % much better in terms of Good battery life , sleek profile and amazing screen. I wonder what was HTC thinking with it Windows Phone 7 technology.
I have always believed that WP7 has great potential as OS but no format face camera and Lack of Good Hardware and Apps are big big let down to this otherwise Gorgeous OS.
I Hope that it changes soon.
O.k it looks a nice mobile,but its the functions that you can"t do with Windows 7,that needs changing,but this doesn"t seem to bother people nowdays,an paying to much for a phone thats limited to much,an some people will buy this mobile just because of the large screen size
WP7 is intend for business user, so no fancy UI like iOS, webos or android just like WM6 but with minimalist design. Minimalist design is strip down to as simple as it gets while still looking sleek. If you want fancy UI then you shouldn't be look at this phone.
Windows Phone 7 Rocks, period, i used it last day and there's no better system out there, just so fast
dear gsm, u've been part of my day, every day
everytime i woke u r in my third place (website) which i check out if what is new and whats the news?! lol
thanks and more power
keep up the good work

seriously this phone is huge and it sucks especially the windows 7 operating system!!! microsoft got a thumb down for that,
why does htc company likes to create gigantic phones? i rather choose android os
whata huge display, 2 bad for ghosting.. Its like an old and poor plasma tv. Hell my thumb cant even reach the upper opposite of a 3.5'' screen!
sorry again but i dont know why gsmarena says it has a poor screen, the screen is identical to my friends desire HD and its not a bad screen, if there's a difference between this and the better ones it will show up only side to side and under microscope, i am so happy that i bought it
I forgot to add, my friend has a desire HD and my HD7 completely destroys that laggy phone, now he regrets that he didn't wait despite me saying him to wait
Hd7 is just so faster than desireHD, they say they have the same CPU but i dont believe because it does everything 2 times faster, without any lag
I bought this phone in europe and its so fast, no hang no lag nothing, sorry for my bad english, probably the best htc phone ever
Netbooks have even bigger screens. I think the size of HTC Desire is optimal for a phone. LG BL40 is also very handy despite 4" screen, but has sluggish interface.
Ok, question is... what good is a huge screen if it sucks? High response time? Lame! But, I believe the mediocre screen goes along well with a (still) mediocre OS...
