HTC Desire HD is the richest way to visually experience news, friends, photos, favourite places and whatever else is important on a mobile phone. With one of the most advanced displays available on a phone today, HTC Desire is designed with a large 4.3 inch HD touch screen display to enhance and maximise content, whether it is pictures and videos, browsing the Web or checking on friends' status updates. HTC Desire HD is powered by a one gigahertz Snapdragon processor and is Adobe Flash 10.1 ready

Connectivity is perfectly covered with the HTC Desire HD as it features quad-band GSM and dual band UMTS (with HSPA) support as well as built-in GPS receiver and a Wi-Fi antenna. The mandatory USB and Bluetooth are present too.

HTC Sense
HTC Desire HD pioneers the new custom UI that HTC have prepared for the Android OS. HTC Sense is based on three basic principles dubbed as Make it Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected. Here are the three principles.

Make it Mine
With HTC Desire HD, personalization reaches a level never before possible. Rather than burying important content under layers of menus, the HTC Desire HD lets you put it at glance view, with a selection of widgets that can be placed right on the home screen. The widgets themselves can be personalized with a variety of designs and sizes that best match your personality.

With Scenes, a new profile feature, HTC Desire HD becomes multiple phones in one. Create and switch between Scenes that reflect different moments in your life. Your Desire HD becomes a weekend phone that helps you relax with your choice of tunes, catch up with your favorite friends and capture some memories with HTC Footprints. And when you go on a trip, your phone becomes your personal guide and gives you instant access to local time, weather and maps.

Stay Close
Today, staying in touch with the people in your life means managing a variety of communication channels and applications ranging from phone calls and emails to Facebook updates. HTC Desire HD makes staying close as simple as turning to your friend and saying hello. When you view people, you see the different ways to get in touch, you also see all your interactions like emails sent to your personal and work accounts. You can even check for social network updates and event notices as well as see the latest pictures your friends uploaded to popular photo sharing sites.

The first true phone to take on apple?
No, there are lots of contenders, this however is by far the best. It is not the best if you are an idiot and need the apple "intuitive" software.

If, however, you are like me and are into some serious gadgetry this is the one for you, it is powerful, sexy and down right brilliant.

HTC does it again.

 Brilliantly Amazing!

Top 100 Mobile Reviewer

Before I got the Desire HD I read so many user reviews. I couldn't find one that gave me actual usage and battery life, I'm an It consultant so I do a lot if research on things like this before I spend my hard earned cash.

I have read so many reviews that complain about the battery, thought I would take the risk and get the phone anyway, and have had it for almost a month now with the phone improving every day, feature and battery wise.
In my experience the battery life is good enough in todays world of high powered, feature filled smartphones.

The phone is setup with the screen on 50% brightness as I haven't found the need for it to be any brighter, WiFi and mobile data with auto sync enabled all the time. I have Facebook, weather and news syncing every hour and exchange and hotmail email every 10mins. My normal working week involves a 3 hour train journey each day. During this time I use the phone for a mix of listening to music, watching videos, playing a few games and browsing the web, some of which is done at the same time. During my working day I average around 1 hour of call time, about 45mins sending sms messages and the rest the phone is idle working away on its own with the setup sync schedules. At the end of a 12 hour working day I have on average around 25% of battery life remaining.
Yesterday was the first time I used the mapping feature thinking it would use a lot more battery with the gps, to my surprise I found the pub I was looking for within 5 mins of using the map whilst listening to music and spent the night sending a few sms messages and showing off my phone to friends and got home with over 15% battery left, as I type this review I have just got a notification that my battery is at 5% and I should charge it. The phone has been off charge for 1 day and 2 hours.

To my expectations of smartphones I am impressed with the battery life, possibly because I have read so many bad reviews and wasn't expecting this much battery life.

I have had to plug in my charger as the phone died but with the quick boot function and the Android memory management I have not lost any of this review. The hardware is fantastic, all the way from the inner components to the casing and screen, which might only be an lcd, but can only tell the difference in the blacks and whites if you are looking for it. The camera is great, picture quality is very good for a phone.

Just a footnote I have never owned an iPhone so cannot make any comparisons, my last phone was a Nokia n97 and this beats it hands down. Not knocking the iPhone as it is a brilliant device, a friend has one and his died last night after approximately the same kind of use I make out of my phone, so he had to borrow mine to make a call... in my mind that's a victory for the HTC Desire HD.

 Quality speaks for itself

I had high hopes for this phone considering how good the original Desire was. However to say I am completely blown away is an understatement!

It's sexy aluminium shell coupled with its top of the range hardware and features makes for a very exciting device for lovers of technology.

The Super LCD screen is the brightest I have seen yet in a smartphone. In my opinion this blows the Iphone completely out of the water, there is no comparison!

AAAAAA+++++

 simply awesome smartphone

This phone beats the iphone4 in so many ways it's unbelievable!

I've had this for a few months now, and still surprises me with functions I didn't know existed.

For example, it's got DLNA which means it can connect to your PC, XBOX, PS3, using the WIFI in your house to share pics, videos, music etc.

Just the other day I found out that this beast of a machine can also play DIVX films which I have downloaded on PC which stream to the HTC via the DLNA through WIFI, and guess what? The files are HUGE! 600 - 700MB in size and are 720p and there is no lag or skips, plays very smoothly!

There are hidden functions that you need to look through to activate all these functions though, under wifi settings select advanced settings, and tick the box at the bottom to do with DLNA.

Also to speed up the phone, go to the settings and development, and select USB DEBUGGING MODE that will speed it up a lot!

The only thing that bothers me is battery life, but I can make this phone last all day, just switch it to AIROPLANE MODE and you can still use it to listen to music and watch videos on a train or in a car.
