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Mobile, and with the mobile world seemingly full of Android phones, iPhones and Palms, doesn’t that make it already out of date?
Summary: The HTC Touch HD2 has a lot of features and HTC Sense, all packed into its large well-built frame, as well as a super-snappy interface. Its 4.3-inch screen is definitely the best thing about the phone, but unfortunately, it is no longer the best screen around. 65K colour limitation and poor sunlight legibility are also serious limitations, as is the mediocre video playback experience.
Pros: Speedy and capable interface, Large and responsive touchscreen, Great battery life, Free Office document editing
Cons: Poor sunlight legibility, 65K colour limitation, Pricey, Average camera
Excerpt: Windows Mobile doesn’t support capacitive touchscreens, the better-looking, easier-to-use kind of screen used on the iPhone, for instance. But HTC has rewritten core Windows Mobile applications to make it work, and the result is a big-screened, multimedia phone with a cool HTC overlay that makes Windows Mobile its most usable yet. What we like It’s very nippy.
Summary: Since I plugged my AT&T 3G Card in my Touch HD2, I have not found time to use my iPhone, yet… Elegant, Fast, with a brilliant UI, the Touch HD2 is really something that I was expecting for a very long time in the Window Phones world.
Yes, the Touch HD2 is the ultimate Window Phone yet, and there will be very few competitors capable of offering a real alternative to this device, however, and while I really like this new Touch HD2, the lack of a proper App Store, or should...
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.
Excerpt: HTC’s HD2 from T-Mobile, with its glossy 4.3-inch display and Blockbuster download capability, is about as close to a personal multimedia device as a cell phone can get. Too bad it has the wrong operating system: the nearly obsolete Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional sugar-coated with HTC’s Sense. Yes, the HD2 is chockfull of lovely technologies, but can all its wonderful multimedia capabilities peacefully co-exist in a heretofore touchscreen unfriendly operating system?
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: In this the second HD handset from HTC, the company has made some very relevant modifications. The previous HTC Touch HD seemed as impressive when launched but fared poorly. I was hoping this one would do better and I got the opportunity to find out. Take a look. Form Factor The handset can be described appropriately in one word – Big.
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.
Excerpt: The European HD2 was pretty popular. It was the first Windows Phone with a capacitive multitouch screen, and it had the largest screen on the market. T-Mobile’s version adds a few hardware and software enhancements along with some great value-added bundles and a fantastic price to make the HD2 a top selling phone in the U.S. Heck, for the first few weeks since its release, HTC can’t make enough!
