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]

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.
Summary: There doesn't seem to be any arguing against it - the HTC Desire HD is a solid smartphone for non-US markets and is, essentially, exactly what HTC needed to keep up their rapid growth rate . Couple that with the soon-to-be-released Desire Z, which adds a physical QWERTY keyboard to the mix for those who so desire (pun intended) and you've got a praise-worthy selection of devices - now how about a dual-core Desire HD?
Summary: A price tag of Rs. 26,990 would have been great 3 months back, but is merely good today. Don't get us wrong - the HTC Desire HD is a very nice phone, but it feels a tad overpriced, especially given dual cores have been sighted at a mere 5,000 bucks more. It remains pretty much one of the best single core Android phones your money can buy. However, we recommend postponing your impending purchase a bit.
Pros: Well built, Superb sensitive touchscreen, Great performance in signal clarity tests, Responsive and great interface, HTCs Sense UI is pretty amazing, Good camera
Cons: Large and a bit heavy, Small battery doesn't last very long, Decent display, but we want at least an S-LCD, Some glaring design issues, like dust settling in between display and bezel, Future proofing is a large cloud looming over all single core Android phones
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: HTC sets new standards with the Desire HD, which was at the time of launch one of the first Android smartphones to feature such a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display. Even though several months have passed since it has been introduced on the market, the HTC Desire HD smartphone is still on top of the food chain. The phone's hardware configuration was cloned and embedded into other popular HTC models such as the Inspire 4G and Thunderbolt.
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. Sales Package HTC Desire HD handset 1230 mA...
