Summary: "A very nice phone, but runs out of internal memory quickly. This happened in my case after 4 days of using the phone. Downloaded apps , email and contacts all eat up memory. Some apps can be moved to the memory card. Following a system update, WIFI stopped working, apparently a common problem with this update. Pickup for repair has been arranged, should take 10 days I was told.
Summary: I purchased this handset second hand from ebay after my trusty Galaxy S2 broke and I could not afford to replace it. I opted for this handset as it appeared to be the most similar to the S2 in terms of menu layout and function. Upon receiving the handset I was genuinely surprised with the condition. Once powered up the handset was easy to use and the menus easy to customise. It is an android phone so apps are easily downloaded via google play.
Excerpt: "i desperately wanted one of these and ive had mine for 11 months now. although it looks nice and has some nice features the negatives outweigh the positives. The usually simple activities, like saving a new number from a txt message took me ages to find out. Ive had to remove my speed dials because its so sensitive i was ringing people just by putting the phone down and inadvertantly touching the screen as theres no 'call number?'. The contacts ...

HTC Desire HD: A decent phone but it needs an 'i' to become truly special
5 March 2012
Summary: I decided against the iPhone as I didn't want to pay the ridiculous monthly prices I was being quoted on top of having to pay around £200 for the phone. So I decided to get a HTC Desire HD. Am I pleased? Well, sorta. Packaging The phone itself comes packaged in a very small box which is great for storage but once again the lack of instructions causes issues when trying to sort the phone out.
Pros: Screen size, functionality
Cons: Volume controls broke and plastic back is terrible
Excerpt: "I have had the HTC Desire HD for quite a few months now and am fully up to speed on all its capabilities. Firstly if your looking for something as good as an Iphone in terms of features then this is as near as you are going to get. The touch screen is very receptive and the ease with which you can access apps and or flick to other screens is excellent. The sound is good when you use it as a stand alone media player and it is backed by a ...
Pros: slim, large screen , great camera, ease of use,100os of Apps
Summary: Its a good product...abit complicated if you are not used to smart phones...but applications and games a great screen is very responsive. Some negatives are if you use apps a lot the battery will run out quickly but having a spare battery on charge while phone is in use make it so much more easier to keep using phone without much disruptions.
Summary: I got this phone from 3 in November. Due to a loss I've had to replace it on insurance in June. Due to current pricings it is very much better price than current competition by other manufacturers of 4.3" screen Android phones. I love this phone. It's great as a smart-phone. It works great for emails, calendars, and other synching tasks. I was rather dissapointed with the picture quality and features on the camera.
