Overview of HTC Desire HD

THIS HANDSET HAS NOW BEEN DISCONTINUED. THE LATEST HANDSET IN THE DESIRE RANGE IS THE HTC DESIRE C.

If you want the ultimate in mobile multimedia and connectivity the HTC Desire HD fulfills your needs. It has all the features you need to be able to enjoy your media and stay in touch with your friends, family and business contacts.

Powered by the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system and enhanced with the HTC Sense interface. The HTC Desire HD enables you to keep in contact with all your business contacts and friends on one device. The Android operating system can be customized to your own individual requirements. Download new apps directly to the Desire HD from the Android Market and make it your own.

We all need to keep in contact and the HTC Desire HD ensures that this is simple with its fast 3G/HSPA connectivity and WiFi b/g/n. It brings a vibrant and responsive web browsing experience to mobile users.

Enjoy being able to take high quality photos with the integrated 8 mega pixel camera, featuring a 2 x LED flashlight and autofocus, to ensure you get the perfect picture. Or record high definition video at 720p resolution to impress your friends.

There is no need to worry about storing your media as the HTC Desire HD benefits from 1.5GB of internal storage. It provides plenty of space to store your favourite photos, videos or music, with additional storage being available via the SD 2.0 compatible microSD slot.

Having all your favourite photos and videos with you is great, but you need a quality display to view them. The HTC Desire HD excels at this with a 4.3 inch touch screen that has a resolution of 480 x 800, bringing your photos and videos to life.

Enjoy your music like never before with the integrated Dolby Mobile and SRS Surround Sound. Together they bring a level of audio experience to the mobile user, making listening to your music collection even more enjoyable.

"This site is great to deal with no hassles whatsoever.
Do I rate this phone as best on the market? No! poor build quality,flimsy battery cover and simcard cover not to mention awkward to remove, very poor loudspeaker volume, hardware buttons unreliable and difficult to press, camera picture quality is lower than my HD2 in some circumstances and device is a little heavy.
I can understand a user coming from any other device to DHD considered an upgrade but from HD2 to DHD was quite disappointing.
There are some positives such as headphone audio quality, extremely good! UI Sense, very nice (completely acheivable with HD2 Android port)This is just my opinion after 5 months using this device."

"Package arrived 2 weeks after dispatch. Not the fastest, but could be due to Xmas rush.

I was however most unimpressed with the packaging, as everything arrived in a mangey standard yellow bubblewrap paper envelope. Would've been ok if there were only accessories, but for a £400 phone destined for international shipping, a padded cardboard box would have been nice.

The phone itself is really good. Very happy with the purchase. Battery life seems quite reasonable, isn't as bad as first expected. Although a portable battery charger can be useful for extended heavy usage.

My only gripe with the phone so far is the casing. It's like having a Porsche engine wrapped in a Hyundai body. Need to pry the battery and cards compartment covers open and pray to dear God they won't break as you do so. On my phone they don't sit right either - can see a slither of the electronics inside.

One other disappointment, phone won't fit into the generic cradle docking station with protective casing on. There is only enough space for the phone alone without the cover on (and it doesn't sit right either).

Otherwise, great phone, love it!"

"This is an amazing phone. It is really a smartphone. You can customize nearly every thing in the device. You can connect it to any computer and put things in it without any specific program "it will work as a hard drive".
Regarding the battery life, the phone has a lot of settings which will allow your battery to live longer.

If you decided to buy HTC Desire HD, then Clove is the best choice for you. "

Hi, Clove
I'd like to thank you very much!
I just received my phone,
I enjoyed it very much
All owners of iPhone readers in the comments here
I have four iPhones hd bought the main reason Apple puts on your instruments and take the customer as if they were their prisoners of war
I want to write you bought the hd big concern because iPhone is an excellent and did not know if the hd will give me what I have iPhone
And now after one week of use
I want to tell you
"You can not compare the iPhone to hd
The hd better than a few notches is a technological leap and most importantly it is open to all
You are not anybody's prisoner and you're enjoying every second and second from a huge screen is amazing quality quick answers all the demands of my iPhone and passes them
My recommendation to buy the hd without hesitation
Enjoy
I wrote it via Google English translation, so maybe not perfect but certainly subsidiary"

"Ive had the HTC desire HD phone from clove for a few days now... its INCREDIBLY impressive! it feels like a different generation phone coming from an iphone to this!
Things i love:
the ability to customise everything! (android)
the ability to download any app i want
the music player and video player are superior... and the fact i can delete itunes off my pc!
the sound quality is amazing!

things i dont like:
the battery life (the first thing you NEED to do when you get this phone.. is download a task manager)

all in all the BEST phone ive had by a mile! highly reccomended. and thank you clove.. you answered all my queries and questions

" I liked this HTC flagship very much and was going to order it to replace my present HTC Desire but I changed my opinion about this smartphone when I read impartial review of it on "mobile-review.com" (unfortunately, in Russian only at present time). It is a pitty that Desire HD has not got enough qualitative camera and built-in sound to listen to the music via earphones, in addition, it's got very poor accumulator on board, especially for it's comparatively high price.
P.S. Continue to use Nokia N86 and previous HTC Desire, and still wating for real practical flagship from HTC..."

With regards to battery life this phone has a restart function which turns off all apps not being used and if turning off wifi when not using it you could get around 2 days use out of this phone.

"I've been playing with my new Desire HD for the past week since it arrived. Absolutely brilliant phone! I thought the Desire was great but Desire HD beats that hands down.

The phone is very fast and the larger screen is great for videos & multimedia while also providing a little more room for the keyboard - I've noticed an improvement in speed and accuracy as a result.

The larger size and heavier weight than the original Desire could be a problem for guys who like to stick the phone in a soft shirt pocket or in trouser pockets, especially if you use a case.

I tend to keep mobile data off and use WiFi as much as possible. Using the phone this way, even with keeping data always on & background synching and updates happening constantly when I am at home, I generally get around 30 hours use before needing to recharge the battery. For a phone as feature-rich as this one I consider that pretty darned good."

"I was lucky enough to get on the Clove pre-order list early so I had mine delivered to me last week and I've been fiddling around with it since then.

It looks and feels absolutely amazing, its blisteringly fast and the marriage of HTC Sense and Android is better than ever, there's just so much on and to this phone.

Its not good with power though, even with moderate use it'll need topping up at least once during a normal day's usage."
