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'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: Ginny Mies (



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Runs now-outdated Windows Mobile 6.5 ; Performance can be sluggish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

HTC HD2 (unlocked)


The HTC HD2 features a brilliant and massive 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen with multitouch support. HTC Sense offers a more user-friendly and customizable user experience. The smartphone is also equipped with a 1GHz processor and 5-megapixel camera.

The HD2 is huge. Speakerphone quality was somewhat poor. No U.S. 3G support on the unlocked version.

The HTC HD2 is simply the best Windows Mobile phone out there, but its appeal could be hampered by its size and the upcoming Windows Phone 7 series.

Expert review by: ZDNet (



There's no doubt in our minds that the combination of power, features and good looks make the HTC HD2 the best Windows Mobile smartphone ever made.

Huge screen matched with slim, lightweight construction, Powerhouse Snapdragon processor, Wi-Fi router mode is very handy, Comparatively inexpensive, 16GB microSD included

Memory needs to be managed to avoid major lag spikes, Keyboard auto-correction isn't as good as the iPhone

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

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