54025It has everything you would need and expect from an android phone, exceptional touch screen, even when apps are downloaded they do not seem to affect the phone's speed or ability, really one to have the iphone shaking in it's boots ! :)

54997I personally think that the HTC Desire HD is easily the best Smart Phone on the market today.
Somebody wrote "Easily better than the iPhone" and I agree 100%

60235All the faults have already been listed in other reviews but the phone's pluses more than make up. Not having to constantly scroll on this lovely large screen means the web pages and face book and are easy to read and pictures are so great in hd. I even plug it into ps3 and veiw photos on 42" tv there brilliant. I don't use my camera as much now I have this quality phone. It's a quick phone but receiving of fb and email is a lot slower than my blackberry. I still love this phone I use it far more than my pc for browsing fb and checking email its so quick and easy to use and see. I would say that it can be data hungry, so even if you are at home on wifi, un-check the mobile network + the enable always on mobile data, (its for udating of background apps etc), both are in wireless and network settings you will need to re-tick mobile networks when out of wifi range and also mobile data back on for an hour a day I would think to keep updated but ensure wifi is good with no drop offs for the data otherwise you will use your 500meg data in 2 weeks. By the way, utube music vids are a delight (turn the phone sideways), but with earphones of course. There is no doubt this phone is very good.

HTC Desire HD is the richest way to visually experience news, friends, photos, favourite places and whatever else is important on a mobile phone. With one of the most advanced displays available on a phone today, HTC Desire is designed with a large 4.3 inch HD touch screen display to enhance and maximise content, whether it is pictures and videos, browsing the Web or checking on friends’ status updates. HTC Desire HD is powered by a one gigahertz Snapdragon processor and is Adobe Flash 10.1 ready
Connectivity is perfectly covered with the HTC Desire HD as it features quad-band GSM and dual band UMTS (with HSPA) support as well as built-in GPS receiver and a Wi-Fi antenna. The mandatory USB and Bluetooth are present too.
HTC Desire HD pioneers the new custom UI that HTC have prepared for the Android OS. HTC Sense is based on three basic principles dubbed as Make it Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected. Here are the three principles.
Make it Mine
With HTC Desire HD, personalization reaches a level never before possible. Rather than burying important content under layers of menus, the HTC Desire HD lets you put it at glance view, with a selection of widgets that can be placed right on the home screen. The widgets themselves can be personalized with a variety of designs and sizes that best match your personality.
With Scenes, a new profile feature, HTC Desire HD becomes multiple phones in one. Create and switch between Scenes that reflect different moments in your life. Your Desire HD becomes a weekend phone that helps you relax with your choice of tunes, catch up with your favorite friends and capture some memories with HTC Footprints™. And when you go on a trip, your phone becomes your personal guide and gives you instant access to local time, weather and maps.
Today, staying in touch with the people in your life means managing a variety of communication channels and applications ranging from phone calls and emails to Facebook updates. HTC Desire HD makes staying close as simple as turning to your friend and saying hello. When you view people, you see the different ways to get in touch, you also see all your interactions like emails sent to your personal and work accounts. You can even check for social network updates and event notices as well as see the latest pictures your friends uploaded to popular photo sharing sites.
Discover the Unexpected
Many of the most memorable moments in your life are experienced, not explained. Even basic functions like the dialer will pleasantly surprise you on the HTC Desire HD. You can find a person by dialing their phone number or simply by dialing the first few letters of their name.
With HTC Desire HD, you can look at things through different perspectives. Your inbox is not just a list of emails, but a catalog of conversations, a collection of notes flagged as important, and a document library of all your emails with attachments. Your Album is not just the photos saved on your phone. It is also a gateway to online collections of you and your friends on Facebook or Flickr.
Search just about anything, anywhere on your HTC Desire HD. The dedicated Search button combs through tweets in Twitter™, locates people in your contact list, finds emails in your inbox, searches through appointments in the calendar and very nearly finds needles in haystacks..
