HTC Desire HD review: Most wanted

 

Proceed with caution, big Snapdroids ahead. We guess that sign is due wherever someone mentions Desire HD. It's big and bad and it takes no prisoners. HTC certainly took their time with releasing a bad-ass Android handset on our side of the pond but...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense UI ; Unibody design ; Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8255 1...

LCD isn’t quite as impressive as Retina or Super AMOLED (lower contrast, more reflective) ; No dedicated camera key and no lens cover ; No front facing camera ; Quite heavy at 164 g (not that we mind) ; The two lids at the rear have questionable...

The HTC Desire HD is not in the mood to fool around – it has to be the biggest screen, the fastest processor, the latest software on the block.

Review: HTC Desire HD

 

Eine Woche mit dem Desire HD von HTC jetzt hinter uns. Damit wird es nicht nur Zeit, das Testgerät zurückzuschicken, sondern natürlich auch für ein paar Ergebnisse unserer Kurz-Liaison. Mehr hinter dem Break.

HTC Desire HD review

 

Did you know that the word "jumbo" originated from the name of an African elephant famed for being the largest of his kind? HTC will be well familiar

Terrific general performance ; Flawless browser ; Aluminum unibody plus jumbo screen

Fit and finish issues ; Poor battery life ; Camera lens left unprotected

HTC Desire HD Review

 

Summary: The HTC Desire HD may be too large for some users, and the new e-book reader and navigation apps left us somewhat cold. Battery life could be an issue too. However, the large screen is excellent for media-rich activities like web browsing and...

Large 4.3in. screen, New online services including remote ring, lock and erase, 8-megapixel camera, Sense user experience includes new features and tweaks, Comes with 8GB of microSD card storage

Too large for many people to use one-handed, Battery life likely to be around a day for many users, Awkward headphone jack location

HTC Desire HD

 

The HTC Desire HD is a peacock among pigeons, strutting a massive 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen wrapped in a lightweight aluminum body. The screen offers a very impressive 480 x 800 pixel resolution, which means crazy-crisp text and images. Powered...
