HTC Desire HD Review

In a nutshell: The HTC Desire HD delivers more power than probably any other smartphone currently available, with the Android Froyo operating system, a 4.3 inch screen, 8 megapixel camera, HD video recording, GPS, 1GHz processor, 14.4 Mbps internet access and 1.5GB of internal memory. It may be big, it may be costly, but if you're excited by the opportunities that the phone offers, you won't find better.
HTC Desire HD
The HTC Desire has been the number one smartphone in the first half of 2010, so it makes sense for HTC to build on this success by rolling out more variants of a successful formula. But they haven't been resting on their laurels. The new Desire HD is a phone that really pushes the boundaries of what a smartphone can do. We don't expect it to be as big a seller as the HTC Desire because it's just too big and too expensive to become a mainstream phone. But if you want the very best of what smartphone technology can deliver in 2010, then you've probably found it in the Desire HD.

Essentially the HD is a souped-up version of the Desire. HTC have clearly followed the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach, and have taken a very successful platform and simply made it better. So, what's new? First the device has grown in size, but surprisingly only by about 15%. But it's seriously put on weight, tipping the scales at a massive 164g, which is second only to the Nokia N900. But the increase in size has enabled HTC to stick a mouth-watering 4.3 inch screen on the Desire HD, making it a superb device for the mobile internet. They've also doubled the data connection speed to 14.4 Mbps download, and brought in Adobe® Flash® Player 10. The operating system is Android� 2.2 (Froyo) with HTC Sense - no surprises there. The internal memory has been increased to 1.5 GB (with an option to add up to 32GB of microSD memory), and the camera has been upgraded to 8 megapixels, with a dual LED flash and video recording in 720p HD. Oh, they've also added in Dolby® Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound and DLNA connectivity, so you can connect your Desire HD to a suitable TV.

Is there any downside to any of this? Well, apart from the increased size, weight and cost, we're rather surprised to note that the battery has just a 1230 mAh capacity. We don't think that's big enough, but we'll have to see how the Desire HD behaves in the long run.

Still, you'd have to be a meany to dislike this phone. Just make sure you understand what kind of beast it is before you buy.
