HTC Desire HD Review
HTC Desire HD runs on a Qualcomm Scorpion processor of 1GHz with 768 MB RAM. It has 1.5 GB of Internal memory and an external MicroSD support of up to 32GB of which 8 GB is included. It has accelerometer, compass and proximity sensor.
It runs of Android Gingerbread, which is upgradable to Ice cream sandwich. HTML and Flash browser support is available. Google search, Maps and Gmail are enabled. Google Talk, Youtube and Picasa integration is available. It supports Facebook and Twitter applications also. Voice memo and predictive text input are included.
HTC Desire HD is a 123x68x11.8mm dimensioned phone weighing about 164gms. The front of the Desire HD is mostly taken up by screen. The four touch sensitive options are all easy enough to press and light up when the phone is in use – we’d still rather they were the physical keys of the original Desire, as it’s easier to hit them without taking your eyes off the screen. The dimensions of the phone are designed to decrease the trade-off of having a massive screen, but it only partly works. The thin frame makes it easy to hold in the hand, but in the portrait mode it’s still impossible to reach the top of the screen without jiggling the phone around in your hand.
HTC Desire HD has a LCD capacitive Touch screen with 16M colors. It has a 4.3 inch screen with 480×800 pixels and ~ 217 ppi pixel density. Multi touch is enabled with HTC Sense UI enabled and Corning Gorilla glass display is available.
It has a 5 MP primary camera with 3264×2448 pixels, autofocus, dual LED flash included featuring face detection and Geo-tagging. No secondary camera is available.
The music player on the HTC Desire HD is really good. The audio output has been boosted by the addition of Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound. The audio playback formats supported are aac, amr, ogg, m4a, mid, mp3, wav and wma. The audio recording could be done in amr format. Video playback formats available are 3gp, 3g2, mp4, wmv, avi and xvid. Video recording is handled in 3gp format.
Performance & Battery Life
It has a standard 1230 mAh battery. The stand by time is up to 490 hours on 2G and up to 420 hours on 3G. Talk time is up to 9 hours 15 min on 2G and up to 5 hours 30 min on 3G.
It has the super slick UI and the browsing experience is great. Dolby Mobile and SRS Virtual sound are added advantages. E-book reader is very decent and the contacts are very easy to connect.
Battery life is very poor and there is a lack of OLED screen. Video player is not very good and connectivity to HTCsense still has some bugs.
