The HD2 is my first HTC device, but certainly not my first touch device or Windows Mobile device; It wont be my last HTC device but I doubt I would go much bigger for the screen size, I think 4.3" is plenty big enough for when it comes to a phone!! The HD2 operates on Windows Mobile 6.5, which is...

Depending on what you’re looking for in a handset, the HTC HD2 may or may not be what you’re looking for. The HD2 is a bit of a mixed bag, provided you buy it for the right reasons then it could be the handset for you. I took the HD2 as my last upgrade because I wanted a handset that would let me...

For a Sony Ericsson 'fan-boy', I certainly didn't think that I would ever defect to another manufacturer. However, when my flatmate got the HD2, even though I had very few chances to check it out, I fell in love. The HD2 is my first HTC device. However, certainly not my first touch device or...

“The many faces of the HD2”

published 18/09/2011

ProComes with Windows Mobile 6.5 installed

ConsThat Windows Mobile 6.5 problem can be rectified

HTC's HD2 handset is such an amazing handset. Although it has a couple of annoyances, it is a phone that just cannot be ignored. There have been many phones released after it, successors and rival phones to its successors, but in the end, the HTC HD2 is the endearing phone of the heap. How is it...

ConsBattery life, & worst of all, Windows 6.5

This is my current phone and my feelings towards it is very much mixed. I hope this may be of some help to those who are considering buying this phone. I've purchased this phone in March 2010, which is around 5 months after it's release in November 2009. At that time I had Nokia N97 (which was...

The HTC HD2 is a wonderful media device. I've had mine for almost a year now. Only once i sent it back to vodaphone to upgrade the firmware, did it make sense to actually spend the £150 for the phone (plus a 2 year contract of £15 a month for 60 mins talktime, 250 msgs & unlimited internet). At...

The HTC HD2 is well worth the wait, and the investment. For a phone of such startling size, it fits remarkably well into pockets, and even the small-handed seem comfortably able to use it.

The HD2 is in my opinion one of the best looking phones on the market, it is slim, sleak, and is made from high quality materials (certain parts are brusged metal).

Consthe reception could be better

The new HTC HD2 is fantastic, but as all products with a few things that could've been better. The alarm clock doesn't have the option to put an MP3 file on, and the sounds that are available are way too quiet and short, due to that i had woken up late a few times as i can't hear it. To that i...

Product Information : HTC Touch HD2

Manufacturer's product description

HTC HD2 delivers an experience your senses have been waiting for. The unprecedented 4.3-inch pixel-packed display is stunning. The world's first capacitive touch technology on a Windows phone along with 1 GHz processing power ensure a smooth and lightning-fast response to the lightest touch of your finger. Most importantly, it is the first Windows phone to embody HTC Sense - a holistic experience that focuses on making phones work in the most intuitive way. HTC Sense is based on three core principles - make it mine, stay close, and discover the unexpected. HTC HD2's expansive display is like a canvas on which you create a phone that is just right for you. Customize the phone by prioritizing essential features like mail, calendar, messaging, browser and more. Next, with just a tap, put shortcuts to the most important people, favorite websites, or most used application right on the home screen. Your phone doesn't only reflect your personality; it also tunes into your location. The clock automatically updates to the local time wherever you are. You can see the outside temperature and weather at a glance. And, if you choose the weather wallpaper, you'll get a brilliantly lifelike animation that lets you virtually feel the sun's rays or the chill of the breeze without setting a foot outside.
