Your memories now in HD

4.3-inch touch screen
The HTC Desire HD features a high definirion video camera

Some moments you never want to forget. So capture them with HTC Desire HD’s high definition video camera. Then relive and share every detail in HD on your TV, long after the memories have faded.

Never get lost again

Zoom Framing
HTC Desire HD features downloadable maps that are stored on your phone

Ever get frustrated when maps take too long to download and you miss that vital turn, or when your phone rings and you lose your place? Well here's an idea, downloadable maps that are stored on your phone and load up as soon as you need them. And as you may get a phone call when you're looking at your map, when someone calls you the map screen never goes away.

From the big screen to the bigger screen

When HTC Desire HD’s big screen isn’t quite big enough, share photos and videos on a bigger screen. Stream them wirelessly, straight to your DLNA TV with DLNA connection.

A phone you can’t lose (well not easily anyways)

A phone you can't lose
If your phone is on silent and you can't find it just pop online and make it ring from HTCSense.com

If your phone is on silent and you don’t know where it is, we’ll help you find it. Just pop online and make it ring from HTCSense.com. If your phone goes missing, hop online and you can lock it, back up all your contacts and texts and even place a message on the home screen asking for its return.

The full web with Flash Player® 10.1

Some phones can’t play all the video content that's on the web. Well, the HTC Desire HD can. With Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 it plays videos and animations so you can see the web as it was meant to be.

News from your favourite sites, all in one place

The HTC Desire HD syncs with Google Reader, so you can keep up with news from all of your favourite sites and blogs in one place. So whether you're in the office, at home, or away from both, keeping up with what's happening is easy. When you're browsing on your phone, the HTC Desire HD shows you an RSS icon on sites you can add to your reader. All you need to do is tap it to add.

More windows more browsing

You don’t browse one page at a time on your computer so why do it on your phone? Open more websites in more windows and browse more freely.

I got this phone from 3 in November.
Due to a loss I've had to replace it on insurance in June. Due to current pricings it is very much better price than current competition by other manufacturers of 4.3" screen Android phones.
I love this phone. It's great as a smart-phone. It works great for emails, calendars, and other synching tasks.

I was rather dissapointed with the picture quality and features on the camera. (My wife got and Nokia N8 instead
for a better camera, but regretted that decision, as it's smart-phone features & usability lag way behind. and it's camera while better did not make up for the other differences)

The 3.5mm headphone jack on my first phone had a problem. if anything was plugged in the phone would (after a period of 0 - 10 mins) act as if it was receiving random signals and instructions from the buttons on the remote control. I had this happen with several different headphone and cables.
Some otherwise good cables did not connect correctly.

Many 3rd party chargers do not work well - again they interfere with the operation of the screen, and can cause random operation as if the screen is being touched. The Charger that came in the box works fine, but when some others are connected the touch screen dosent work, and the random operation occurs.
As an electronic engineer I suspect that this phone is excessively sensitive to "Dirty Earth" signals or other less than perfect electronic connections at its data and audio ports or devices thereby connected.

For browsing the web when out & About this phone was excellent.
For accessing my personal & work emails & Calendars & Contacts this phone is excellent.
as an e-reader this phone is very usable - but you'll need to keep a charger handy.

I bought an HTC Desire HD having been an iPhone 4 user for the previous ~6 months. I wouldn't describe myself as an iOS or Android fanatic and I therefore feel able to present a detached analysis of how the Desire HD compares to the iPhone 4. I should note that I have been a previous owner of an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. I'll not compare the HTC to those other than to say that it is definitely superior. The iPhone 4 presents a more worthy and relevant competitor.

The principal benefit of the Apple iOS is that it 'just works'. Very few issues are encountered with regards to application incompatibilities or application developers being forced to cosider and cope with various hardware specifications when writing applications. On the iPhone 4 you can be sure that if you download an app from the app store, it WILL work on your device. In addition, the operating system, menues, folders and general interface are in my opinion definitely more user friendly. However, the level of control you have over the functionality of your device is vastly better under Android than it is under iOS. My opinion is that Android is more suited to technically profficient users. That's not to say that luddites everywhere wouldn't be able to use an Android handset, far from it, but for those who don't know a kilobyte from a megahertz, iOS presents a simpler and more easily navigated user interface. Being a tech head myself, I greatly appreciate the vastly superior level of control I get with the HTC under Android than I had on my iPhone 4 under iOS 4.3.

The number of applications available for the iPhone series of devices is at the time of writing greater than the number of apps on offer in the Android marketplace.

As a tech-freak, researching for my next DESIRED product is the best part of the whole process of owning a new device. I was in search for a phone that had everything ranging from texting and calling to watching films on the go, I found this in the Desire HD. I was reluctant to buy an iPhone because of the amount of people that have one these days (including my father, brother and two of my best friends). I was dodging in and out between the iPhone 4 (because of it's wide range of app's and the glorious screen) and the Desire HD, having chosen the Desire HD I am happy with this decision because of the following features:
1) the screen res is better than the verdict people are giving it, granted it is not as good pixel wise as the iPhone 4, it has some great colour fidelity and the screen size is pure badass.
2) the aluminium uni body is fantastic, it gives the phone a weighty and luxurious feel which other phones lack.
3) the sound quality via standard 3.5mm headphones is amazing, the Dolby Digital mobile does really give it that extra "umph".
4) this phone is not as big as it sounds, the 4.3inch monster screen takes up 95% of the screens face (unlike the iPhone) leaving it looking magnificent.
5) there is an expansion slot for Micro-SD's which the iPhone lacks. the phone comes with an 8gb micro SD as standard.
6) the 8MP camera is great with some really useful additions that HTC has incorporated, this makes the camera less of a gimmick and more of a necessity, the shutter speed is also great.
7) HTCSense.com.
