Review of HTC Desire HD Smartphone

I just got myself a new work phone. It is a HTC Desire HD and want to share this little review of it with you. My first impression is that it is a nice phone that is very easy to use. I didn’t take me long to get it connected to Wi-Fi and to make it upgrade to newest version of Android. It has a lot of the tools and apps preinstalled that I needed the most and it is very easy and fast to download the rest through the Android marked. The touch screen is working very well and response quick and smooth. At first I had a little issue with the lock/unlock function that sometime unlocked the phone by accident. However it was solved with the  newest update of Android.

What I liked about the HTC Desire HD

      • Very easy to use, fast and simple.
      • Great big touch screen.
      • It works great with the Android OS.
      • The camera is very good for a smartphone I think, something that HTC has not always been good at.

What i disliked about the HTC Desire HD

      • The battery life is an issue
      • It might seems like a very big phone to carry around

    This smartphone is selling very well and it is not a surprise for me. HTC does a great job developing easy to use and powerful mobiles. A lot of companies are “stealing” from them!

    • Thomas says:

      Hi Rashmi
      It is indeed a great phone. The biggest problem I have with mine is that the battery does not last long. If you have turned on both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi you need to charge it every day.

  13. joel says:

    Wait till its a few months old.. The battery life becomes a BIG issue..

  14. schill39 says:

    I thought HTC is just nothing when it comes to phones and tabs but I was wrong. It was doing a really great job in the industry. Some people find other phones difficult to use but this one is easy and its great.

    I find HTC as one of the most affordable mobile phone available in the market right now. I am planning to buy one though cause I still have my symbian platform and now I want to go for android because of its features. As brother told me, much better than any other platform plus the free apps that I could also get if I will have an android phone with me.

  18. Prisely says:
