HTC HD 2 Mobile Phone

 

In this the second HD handset from HTC, the company has made some very relevant modifications. The previous HTC Touch HD seemed as impressive when launched but fared poorly. I was hoping this one would do better and I got the opportunity to find out....

The Bottom Line HTC’s HD2 is priced at a whopping Rs. 37,800 (approx. MOP). It’s a feature rich handset that’s well designed for comfort of use and manages to offer quite a bit for that price. There’s absolutely no need for a stylus although one has...

HTC HD2

 

HTC's HD2 from T-Mobile, with its glossy 4.3-inch display and Blockbuster download capability, is about as close to a personal multimedia device as a cell phone can get. Too bad it has the wrong operating system: the nearly obsolete Windows Mobile 6.5...

Large, beautiful 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel LCD ; High-end multimedia capabilities including FM radio ; Superb 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash ; Responsive 1GHz Snapdragon processor ; 16GB microSD card preinstalled ; Respectable battery life

Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS ; Slow Web browsing ; Reflective display ; No dedicated camera shutter release button ; Heavy

HTC’s 4.3-inch behemoth proves bigger really is better – until you weave Windows Mobile 6.5 into the mix.

HTC's Gorgeous HD2 Stumbles With Windows Mobile OS

 

Beautiful hardware mated with an atrocious OS. Meet the HD2

Expert review by:

HTC HD2

 

With its gorgeous hardware, speedy Snapdragon processor, and a knockout 4.3-inch display, the HTC HD2 ($200 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile; price as of 4/1/10) seems to be the perfect smartphone. But there's a caveat: The HD2 runs the...

Stunning 4.3-inch display ; Fantastic multimedia capabilities

Runs now-outdated Windows Mobile 6.5 ; Performance can be sluggish

Gorgeous hardware and superb specs are marred by the HTC HD2's soon-to-be-obsolete operating system.

HTC HD2 (black, T-Mobile)

 

It's been a long wait but the HTC HD2 is now officially available from T-Mobile. Much like the unlocked version of the smartphone, which we reviewed in February, the T-Mobile version has awesome features, such as a luxurious 4.3-inch capacitive touch...

The HTC HD2 boasts a gorgeous 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen, and T-Mobile preloads the smartphone with a ton of entertainment extras to take advantage of its display and 1GHz processor. The phone's 5-megapixel camera takes excellent pictures, and it...

The HD2 is clunky and big. It runs Windows Mobile 6.5. We also experienced data connection issues and the smartphone felt more sluggish compared with the unlocked version

The HTC HD2's size and older operating system aren't ideal, but you won't find a more powerful or entertaining smartphone in T-Mobile's lineup.

HTC HD2 (T-Mobile)

 

T-Mobile's big-screen Windows Phone delivers a good entertainment and web browsing experience, but its Windows Mobile roots nearly spoil the fun.

Saying that the HD2 is the best Windows Phone ever isn’t a stretch, but with the much more exciting Windows Phone 7 OS around the corner, does that compliment carry much weight? Yes. HTC and T-Mobile have teamed up to deliver a very intuitive interface...

When Microsoft finally launched Windows Mobile 6.5 earlier this year, there may have been lots of fanfare, but there was little honest excitement. After a tepid showing at MWC in Barcelona followed by the proper launch this October, no one was exactly...

Huge, gorgeous display ; HTC Sense UI ; Slick industrial design

Outdated Windows Mobile OS ; Lack of compelling applications ; Could be too big for some users

Expert review by:

HTC HD2 (Unlocked)

 

A huge multitouch display, blazing processor, and HTC's slick Sense interface make the HD2 the best Windows Mobile phone in a long time.

There’s no question that the HTC HD2 is the best Windows Mobile phone we’ve tested. This device proves that Microsoft’s platform can compete with the big boys when it’s paired with a capacitive screen, smart interface, and snappy processor. However,...

HTC HD2 review: Portrait of a rockstar

 

Quietly brilliant is what HTC like to call themselves and they've been giving enough proof lately. But allow us to disagree. The last thing to call the HD2 is quiet – the monster of a PocketPC simply screams rock'n'roll...

Huge 4.3" 65K-color WVGA glass-covered capacitive touchscreen ; Multi-touch input ; Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS with Sense UI ; Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz CPU and 448MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps ; Wi-Fi...

It's a pretty large phone ; Poor sunlight legibility ; 65K color limitation of display has color gradients banding ; Card slot under the battery cover ; Disappointing photo and video quality ; No dedicated camera key and no lens cover ; No DivX/XviD...

A capacitive touchscreen on a PocketPC? No way? Well, you'd better get used to it because they are just going to keep on coming. The HTC HD2 may be the first of its kind but the next ones are just around the corner. And what's even more important, a...

HTC HD2 review

 

Twelve months ago HTC shook up the Windows Mobile world with the launch of the Touch HD, a smartphone that offered a vast touchscreen, lashings of connectivity and the latest version of their UI tweaking, TouchFLO 3D, to produce what was hitherto...

It’s not a perfect smartphone – the camera, for instance falls short of what we’d expect from a flagship handset – but its strengths certainly outweigh its failings. We’d have difficulty overstating how well internet access is handled, and the HD2...
