Good: Beautiful Very BIG screen, HTC sense, Ease of use
Bad: battery cover removal a little troublesome sometimes, winmo old style ui deep rooted
Comment: I find this device the best winmo device I ever had, screen is fantastic and easy to navigate and sensitive to touch. although the old winmo ui still deep rooted, i can manage since im a winmo user ever since.. for user working a lot with windows base documents this is highly recommended..
Good: The large screen
Bad: Battery Life
Comment: Completely thrilled with this phone! Ordered mine two weeks back and havent been able to put it down since! You could say I am addicted to the HD2!
It comes installed with the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and Windows Marketplace which makes it easy to access everything that you could possibly need.
The only downside I found with the phone is the battery life, which is due to the fact that I have been using it non stop! I am sure if I wasnt constantly on the internet and trawling through the phones capabilities it would be fine.
Got a fantastic deal on this, £30pm with free minutes and unlimited text and web. The unlimited web is a must have in my opinion as you will be using it a lot!
Good: big screen, multitouch, CPU power, WinMo functionality, design
Bad: WiMo 6.5 UI
Comment: Finally a phone that can do everything you were waiting for.
It is not iPhone killer, because only Apple can do a product like that, but it's much better.
Let me explain:
iPhone is consumer product : HTC HD2 is an enterprice product
iPhone comes with iTunes : HTC HD2 comes with Office and Exchange
iPhone is iPod with phone : HTC HD2 is PocketPC with phone
iPhone has Apple badge on back : HTC HD2 doesn't
If you want an iPod with phone, you are iStore and iTunes user, then iPhone is exactly what you need.
If you want enterprice software on your phone or just watch Divx movies that you downloaded from bittorrent - go after HTC HD2.
Only think i don't like on this phone is Windows Mobile 6.5 that you find once you go deep into settings and this is only reason i am giving this phone 9/10.
But there is a good news: MS is developing WinMo 7 and this is first phone that will support it. Not only that - as soon as WinMo 7 is launche, HTC will release WinMo 7 update for this phone.
Good: huge and almost all of it is screen
Bad: I've had to re-boot it a few too many times already
Comment: It's early days yet but I'm pretty happy with the phone, IE is rubbish on it but then you have Opera so no biggie, camera sucks tho' so if you want good photo's then avoid it cos you'll be very disappointed, mainly due to the fact that if the subject so much as breathes they'll blur terribly.
Syncing to MyPhone is pretty cool and all my stuff is safely backed up already, and linking contacts with facebook is awesome, I like this!
So far so good, but like I said, it's early days!
Good: Good looks, great touchscreen
Bad: Waiting for WM7
Good: Love the scree with falling snow building up in the corners
Bad: Confusing to use with seemingly 2 ways to change even the ring tone
Comment: I am a Windows user so that is why I converted to Windows moblie phones last year. I'm only sort of happy with this aspect, all the "must haves" such as Excel are still there, but the usabilty is very confusing. The great advantage with a Windows phone was that I don't need to carry my PDA everywhere I went, so I sold mine. I wish I hadn't, because this phone doesn't have Bubble Breaker or Solitaire! And I can't download them from the totally useless Market place. I wonder why htc left them off? I asked them but their response was disinterested. The phone feels wonderful and with my rapidly growing longsightedness I love the large screen. The overall impression is excellent and even my dyed in the wool Iphone users say so.
But so much more could have been done so easily to make this the best mobile phone ever.
ie tidy up the Windows Mobile interface and make the whole thing easier to use then give us back Bubble breaker and Solitaire and they've done it!
Comment: Best thing every nothing wrong what so ever
