HTC HD2 Review: In Depth
1 day ago
Conclusion: This is a very stylish and successful handset with lots to recommend it, even if you’re not a fan of Windows Mobile. The screen looks great and the hardware is very neatly designed – if you don’t mind holding such a large piece of metal to your ear.
Excerpt: When Microsoft finally launched Windows Mobile 6.5 earlier this year, there may have been lots of fanfare, but there was little honest excitement. After a tepid showing at MWC in Barcelona followed by the proper launch this October, no one was exactly up in arms over the OS, though support from the big M's partners was characteristically plentiful. Still, there was nary a ray of light to be seen in the otherwise bleak and basic landscape of handset offerings...
Pros: Huge, gorgeous display, HTC Sense UI, Slick industrial design
Cons: Outdated Windows Mobile OS, Lack of compelling applications, Could be too big for some users
HTC HD2 review – the best (and biggest!) Windows Mobile phone in the world
17 June 2011
Excerpt: Why should you care about an HTC HD2 review? HTC’s new huge smartphone is based on Windows Mobile, and with the mobile world seemingly full of Android phones, iPhones and Palms, doesn’t that make it already out of date?
HTC HD2 Review: Is This The Windows Mobile Phone For You?
19 July 2010
Excerpt: Considering purchasing the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile phone? Check out everything that you'll need to know right here. We'll go through the overall specs, the great features, and a review of the HTC HD2 so you'll see exactly what you're...
Excerpt: We’ve been testing out the official 2300mAh extended battery for the HTC HD2 and it’s pretty impressive. Where I might have to swap batteries in my HD2 after less than a day or so, the extended battery lasted me well over two and a half days. That’s pretty impressive especially since I’m used to high-power smartphones with weak battery life.
Summary: Though I wish the HD2 was packaged with Android (or Windows Phone 7 Series, for that matter), we're not so lucky. That being said, HTC's Sense UI does an admirable job at hiding most of Windows Mobile 6.5 under a stunning 4.3-inch WVGA display, HTC's Sense UI, and a fast Snapdragon processor. It will be available on T-Mobile in late March, and can be purchased now at various websites.
Conclusion: Impressive, yes, and probably the best video-watching 3G phone on the market not made by Apple (soon to be surpassed by Sprint’s 4G EVO on June 4). But fighting with Windows Mobile, even with HTC Sense chaperoning, is simply not worth the effort. Stick Android on this puppy and you’ve got something.
Pros: Large, beautiful 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel LCD, High-end multimedia capabilities including FM radio, Superb 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, Responsive 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 16GB microSD card preinstalled, Respectable battery life
Cons: Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS, Slow Web browsing, Reflective display, No dedicated camera shutter release button, Heavy
Excerpt: Introduction If you’ve heard anything about the HTC HD2, the screen size has inevitably been a part of the discussion. Simply put, the device is absolutely beautiful. The 4.3-inch screen pops out at you, and small things like checking e-mail and downloading apps from Windows Marketplace come to life. If you think the device is large in photos, wait until you see it in person.
Excerpt: The HD2 is a legend. Not only is it the first Windows Mobile device with a capacitive multitouch display (and you thought it wasn’t possible!), but it has the largest screen of any smartphone on the market at 4.3". The display, coupled with a screaming fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor, tons of RAM, and a robust GPU, equates to a device that is not only gorgeous but also very fast. The HD2 is now shipping in Europe, and is slated for a US release in Q1 2010.
