Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

HTC HD2 delivers an experience your senses have been waiting for. The unprecedented 4.3-inch pixel-packed display is stunning. The world’s first capacitive touch technology on a Windows® phone along with 1 GHz processing power ensure a smooth and lightning-fast response to the lightest touch of your finger.

Most importantly, it is our first Windows phone to embody HTC Sense™ - a holistic experience that focuses on making phones work in the most intuitive way. HTC Sense is based on three core principles – make it mine, stay close, and discover the unexpected.

HTC HD2’s expansive display is like a canvas on which you create a phone that is just right for you. Customize the phone by prioritizing essential features like mail, calendar, messaging, browser and more. Next, with just a tap, put shortcuts to the most important people, favorite websites, or most used application right on the home screen. And if you feel like something is still missing, visit Windows® Marketplace for Mobile, and install fun and useful applications.

Your phone doesn't only reflect your personality; it also tunes into your location. The clock automatically updates to the local time wherever you are. You can see the outside temperature and weather at a glance. And, if you choose the weather wallpaper, you'll get a brilliantly lifelike animation that lets you virtually feel the sun’s rays or the chill of the breeze without setting a foot outside.

With HTC HD2, communication is focused around people rather than applications, so all of your interactions like email, SMS, phone logs, and even updates from Facebook are all in one place. Right where your instinct tells you to look – next to the photo of the person with whom you want to stay in touch with.

In business, a phone call often has the power to prevent a mile-long pile up of inconclusive emails. HTC HD2 makes it simple to go from reading an email to calling the sender. All it takes is a single tap on the large phone icon right from the email. And if you need to get everyone involved in the discussion – just tap next to the images of everyone to create an instant conference call.

Forget the challenge of jumping from your calendar to your phone application while trying to find and memorize the number for your next conference call. On HTC HD2, conference call reminders conveniently appear with a big dial button ready for you to press, even the PIN is displayed, so you’ll never miss out on the latest strategy session.

Some design features of HTC HD2 are far better experienced than can be explained in mere words. Like the ringer volume level that immediately scales down when the phone detects that you have picked it up, or the display that automatically adjusts to the light level in your surroundings and turns off to prevent false screen touches during a call.

HTC HD2 is built for pure finger touch control. Zoom in and out of documents, web pages, pictures or emails with just a simple pinch. Type up responses faster and more accurately on the large onscreen keyboard. The capacitive touch experience combined with an interface optimized for the spacious display, lets you easily adjust the settings, set up calendar appointments, browse through photos, and navigate through menus with only the touch of a finger.

Discover the UnexpectedCarry the HTC HD2 in your pocket and you’ll never have to worry about finding a Wi-Fi access point for your laptop. Your phone simply connects to superfast 3.5G cellular networks and becomes your personal wireless access point – anytime, anywhere.

HTC HD2 has you covered when it comes to taking and viewing pictures wherever you may be. The 5 megapixel auto-focus camera is perfect for capturing the beauty of the great outdoors; combined with the dual LED flash it’s also ideal for capturing images in dim conditions. And when you’re ready to move from behind the lens and start sharing your collection, you’ll dazzle your audience with the large beautifully displayed pictures in the new river-flow gallery.

If you get this amazing phone, note that it has flaws straight out of the box.

Please visit xda-developers website where you will find (search their forums for) SWYPE - a phenomenal tool for vastly increasing your text entry speed, and a whole host of other modifications which you can download and install - for example, a tool for showing you your exact remaining battery percentage at the top-right, rather than the standard 3-bar chart.

The phone has some nice touches. Hook it up to a laptop or PC and it offers you 3 clear options: use phone's internet connection as modem, use phone as mass-storage device (youe phone literally appears as a USB storage device, making file transfers very easy), or synchronise device with PC.

Also, you can set the phone up as a wireless router, and connect to it with your laptop, using the phone's 3g internet connection. how cool is that?

iPhone, eat your heart out - the HD2 has a bigger screen, better resolution, faster processor, more memory, and a more customisable user interface.

Problems with the phone? of course - HTC messaging, the SMS software, has issues: it cannot mark SMS as unread, for example, and there is a bug whereby sometimes the phone doesn't send SMS so you have to reset then send yourself a SMS in order to clear the SMS outbox. But these are minor niggles I'm happy to put up with.

I think this phone is an amazing piece of technology and beats the iPhone in every way. Rather than repeat what everyone else has said, I'll just dive straight in with my favourite 10 features:

1 - GPS is incredibly fast. Picks up a strong signal within seconds, which is unusually quick for a phone.
2 - There are thousands of apps out there for literally everything you could need, it just takes a little more searching to find them than it might with Apple.
3 - 1GHz processor and plenty of RAM makes it super fast - no waiting for anything.
4 - Auto dims and locks screen when it senses it is near your ear so no accidental button bashing, but lights up instantly when you need it.
5 - Incredibly responsive and accurate capacitive multi touch screen (pinch action zooming etc), which is huge (great for media and internet browsing).
6 - Integrated with social networking - the contacts list can actually be set to keep updated with Facebook profile pictures and statuses.
7 - Size isn't too big, which was one thing I had worried about before purchase.
8 - Internet browsing on this phone on T-mobile has actually been FASTER than browsing at home through 20Mbps broadband on a 3 month old £600 PC, and easy too.
9 - Personalisation is a big thing on this phone, with animated weather on the home screen that automatically sets itself to your current location, easy access e-mail, a great functional Calendar (actually Outlook with a HTC makeover), Twitter, Facebook etc.
10 - Big improvement over other HTC phones in speaker volume and also with HTC sense (touchflo 3D) - I've yet to see a windows mobile menu, so we get the functionality without the hideous Microsoft set up.

It is quite simply a pleasure to use. Powerful, simple and free of any frustration.

OK, so your probably thinking there is no such thing as the perfect phone for everyone and your right, but this one almost nailed it for me. I bought this to replace my Nokia N900 which was also almost perfect but not quite for reasons I won't go into here.

I give this 5 stars for being the best Windows Mobile phone currently available, so if Winmo is your thing there is no other place to go. My girlfriend has the iphone and as much as I dislike the iphone package as a whole you really cant argue with the quality if the screen and the ease of text input and having used the iphone, the HTC unfortunately does not compare in this respect when you first take it out of the box. If I was writing this review after one day of using it I would be giving it 2 stars. However after a week I have now got used to the extreemly sensitive screen and can now operate the phone properly. You have to be patient for the first few days then you will start to love this phone.

The only other dissapointing thing when comparing to the iphone or Android phones is the lack of downloadable apps on Windows Marketplace. This should improve though in time.

Other than that the phone looks and feels stunning, comes with all usual Windows productivity software and the screen is delicious, the best around. It is also very very fast. I use it to watch TV when out and about by linking into my Slingbox at home (you have to purchase Sling Mobile software) but it works brilliantly.

So to summarise I give this 5 stars for being the best Windows phone by a mile. I would equate this to 90% so its not perfect and will take a few days to get it just right for you and get used to the screen but it will be worth the effort. Recommended

I have had this phone for about three weeks now. It is brilliant!
The touch screen is clear, easy to read and sensitive (Too sensitive sometimes, In the beginning I accidentally called people whilst just holding the phone). The pinch to zoom is great.
I am using it as a work phone and syncing with my pc is easy and problem free.
We needed a large screen for our work as we use them for remote access to pc's and robots for technical support and it is brilliant for this. We are using Telnet and VNC on the phones, We are even able to talk to the customers on hands free at the same time. The only problem I have found with this phone is sometimes it will hang when you are switching between data connections, as long as you know this and you are patient it's not a problem.
I have been reading some of the other reviews here and they have said that it is difficult to use things like Excel. I would agree with this. You do need a stylus if you are using these quite a lot. It's a shame that Microsoft software isn't more user friendly.
I have found the texting and emailing rather easy. (Haven't been able to set up the push email due to security settings we can't get from our company, which is a shame, as it would work really well) The predictive typing is really good. Trying to type without it is a nightmare with my large fingers as I think I only hit about 75% of the correct keys at the moment I am improving, but it still comes up with the word I was trying to type.
The camera is really good. The flash is really bright and makes a useful torch!
The phone as a phone is really good and clear which is a big plus compared to my XDA! People can hear what I am saying in a noisy environment and the speakerphone is good and clear.
Your "people" page is brilliant.
