HTC HD7 - A Review of Windows Phone 7's Largest Handset
23 July 2011
Excerpt: Windows Phone 7 is one of the newest phone operating systems on the block and it already has a great line up of amazing phones available. One of these phones is the HTC HD7 . Hear is my review of HTC's HD7 smartphone . Is big better? Speaker volume levels are okay, but they will not blow you away.
Conclusion: The HTC HD7 is an all in all pleasure to use. Unfortunately however, it isn't as much of a wow device as its Android 4.3" siblings, having been released far later than the EVO 4G , therefore lacking the edge and without the build quality of the HTC Desire HD or the new Sense UI's functional...
Pros: Windows Phone 7 looks great on the screen, Video is smooth, bright and immersive, Web browsing is a pleasure on the large screen, Dolby Mobile and SRS work very well for music and video
Cons: Design has a few issues, OS needs to mature, Camera has some issues, Battery life could be better
Conclusion: If you're a T-Mobile customer looking to try a new Windows 7 Phone, the HD7 is a great way to start. It's not perfect, but the display size, classy looking hardware and kickstand are big pluses.
Pros: Huge 4.3" display, kickstand and good call quality.
Conclusion: The HTC HD7 is the first of a raft of WinPho 7 handsets but its high spec and solid quality are likely to put it at the front of the queue. HTC has kept its usual buffing up of the OS to a minimum, with just the HTC Hub section offering specialised apps.
Pros: Windows Phone 7, great capacitive multitouch screen, kickstand, HD video recording, stereo speakers
Cons: Windows Phone 7 will take a few months to reach its potential, no memory extension, no Flash video or cut and paste
HTC HD7 review: The HD7's large screen and built-in kickstand make it an attractive option for multimedia buffs, but it isn't perfect.

Summary: The HTC HD7 impressed us with its massive screen and built-in kickstand, but a few annoying quirks in its design detract from this smartphone's overall appeal. The HD7 remains an excellent Windows Phone 7 smartphone but sits a notch below Samsung's Omnia 7.
Pros: Massive 4.3in screen, no negative impact on footprint despite screen size, built-in kickstand, 16GB memory
Cons: Questionable build quality, poorly designed physical buttons, touch-sensitive keys aren't backlit, location of headphone jack, display lacks vibrancy compared to competitors
