Review of the HTC Desire HD
30 September 2012
Summary: Overall opinion: For smartphone that was release way back in October 2010, the HTC Desire HD is still up and running with the front half of the high-tech mobile phones being released today. Nicely done, HTC!
Excerpt: With a plethora of brand new, Android 2.3-toting HTC smartphones just around the corner , now could be a good time to consider one of the company’s older – and arguably better – handsets, which offer those looking for a good deal so much more value.
This is no ordinary HTC Desire HD review! – [Hands-on, with video]
14 July 2011
Conclusion: OK, by now you should have realised what a daft question that is! I loved the Desire HD so much, I bought one for myself, and I can’t think o f a better way of recommending a phone. The Desire HD has every feature you could ever want, performance as fast as you’ll ever need, effortless usability, and is perhaps the first phone that truly delivers on the promise of the always connected, social mobile Web.
Excerpt: If you think big is beautiful then the HTC Desire HD will sweep you off your feet. A 4.3-inch display houses Android’s latest OS iteration and the handset is encased in metal. On paper it’s every geek’s dream but does it operate as well as we hoped it would? Read on to find out. What we like It may not be as big as the Dell Streak or pack the same resolution as the iPhone 4’s display but the HD’s 4.3-inch screen is superb.
Conclusion: To draw the bottom line, if you are in the market for a 4.3” Android super phone, then the Desire HD is your best bet. You might be gasping for a bit more juice out of the battery but that’s the price you’d have to pay for the large screen and the unibody design. Of course if you can settle for a slightly smaller display, then the 4” Super LCD powered HTC Incredible S would be the best choice out there right now.
Excerpt: A lot of people have called the HTC Desire HD an EVO 4G for GSM carriers. While the form factor and specifications may seem similar, there are a lot of differences behind the Desire HD’s ample screen. It’s the screen itself that will grab your attention, and well it should. When it comes to screen dimensions, somewhere there is a line between “not big enough” and “too big”.
Conclusion: Without taking into consideration the small issues with the phone's build finishes, the Desire HD has almost a stellar design. If not for the pieces of plastic and that cover different part of the device, this would have been a 10 out of 10. However, there's another problem that makes the phone less appealing than its big size, and that's the crappy battery. If you can get past this, HTC Desire HD is powerful Android smartphone that offers great functionality.
Pros: The best thing about the Desire HD might also be one of its downsides: it's BIG. It comes with Android 2.2 Foryo and the latest version of HTC Sense UI, which also is a strong point, as the phone is now much faster than the original Desire. Other goodies that worth mentioning are: the powerful CPU, multiple connectivity options, DLNA technology, 768 MB RAM, DivX/XviD video support, as well as 8-megapixels camera with dual-LED flash.
Cons: If you're not fond of oversized handsets, then you can search for something else, as the Desire HD is quite heavy and big. Also, for those who are using all the features of the smartphone, this might also not be the phone for you, as the device features a low power battery. Perhaps a second front-facing camera would've make a nice addition, as well as a better audio quality. I was also disappointed by the poor sales package.
Excerpt: The HTC Desire HD is one of the best Android smartphones currently available. It sports a huge 4.3 inch display with an 8 MP camera and a 1 GHz processor with 768 MB RAM. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo with the HTC Sense UI.
