Advantages Massive clear screen, tons of apps, hacks and tweaks to make the phone as you wabt it
Disadvantages On heavy usage only one day from the battery, a few bugs but depends on device
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 the most up to date version currently available, Personally my HD2 uses Windows 6.5.5 which means that instead of the start button being in the top left hand corner which is a little hard to reach when using only 1 hand unless you have very thumbs so my start button is in the bottom left hand corner which I find much easier!!
Now one thing I keep hearing is the phone as a major lag, the phone always freezes, rubbish reception but for me none of them are true, I live in the UK and most of the time I have the little H in taskbar meaning I have HSDPA which is a boosted 3G.
I have had my HD2 since October and I have never had this so called lag but yes a few times the phone as froze but with the amount of apps and files I have on it I would feeze too!
afterall it is a little pc and lost people from time to time will of had an issue with there computer!
One thing which I found out was with most my other phones i would turn them off at night when I sleep to save on battery but when doing this with my HD2 the alarm does not go off, for the alarm to go off you need the phone on so now I just put the phone on flight mode!for me the standby is excellent, if I had my phone in standy and I never used it i would get approx 410 hours out of it, in standby my phone uses 3mhA and I have a 1230mhA battery, at 1st the battery life was shocking so i also bought a 1500mhA battery off Ebay for £5
Video quality is amazing, Use MPEG4 and VGA 640x480 for the best quality and trust me it very good quality, my phone came with a 2gb external SD Card but an 8 works just as good, not too sure about the 16gb and 32gb, 202mb internal memory, with a whopping 1Ghz snapdragon CPU and 487mb Ram and 512mb ROM but again I use an hack that gives me the full 512mb RAM and US users can use the hack to get the full 1GB RAM, lucking buggers!!!Music is great, use the audio booster to really improve sounds but this means you have to select it each time you start listening to music so me personally I use an application called SRS WOW which lets you change the setting phone headphones and internal speaker and stays that way all the time so no need to activate it each time you listen to music!!
