The pouch looks okay, but i think ultimately it would annoy me. Not keen on the gel case either, makes it look cheap.

I may hold out for a Seidio Innocase - I had one on my Iphone 3G and it was excellent

Doesn't appear to cover the screens on handsets and on a large screen touch screen handset that's a huge necessity. If you scratch or damage the screen it's ruined in terms of looks and possibly use.

Pouches for me every time, keeps them safe and keeps them clean.


I'm just waiting for a decent car holder to come out. My Desire's holder was great but now I have the Desire HD it doesn't fit I don't want a chunky, ugly and useless universal holder, so I guess I'll be waiting a while....

I would say so, yes.

The screen is a massively important part of a touch screen device. If you scratch it you'll reduce it's effectiveness and it also looks less attractive.

I just remember back to when I had an N97 and placed that in my pocket that also had my front door key in it. 20 minutes later I had a noticeable scratch on the handset's screen

Personally I like that brand new handset look that you get when you first open the box to your new device. The screen's shiny, the device is clean and it's not covered in finger prints. Keep the screen protected helps it stay that way.

I don't use a screen protector myself, but that's because I don't use a case for my handset. I use a sleeve which protects the screen as well as the handset. The bonus part is that it has a cleaner inside the sleeve so every time I place it in and remove it all the finger prints are removed and it looks new and shiny

Stupid question alert:

I plan on placing some videos on my DHD.

1) Is it really necessary to buy an extra MicroSD card? I heard videos could be smoother running from the card than phone.

2) If yes, is there a specific kind of brand which is better than the rest?

1: Its not necessary unless you inetend to fill about 5gb or more and then you are going to need a higher card

2: Its more about class of the card than anything, although there is an interesting post here on comparing speeds

I emailed Easy Devices asking when they would have the HTC DESIRE HD USB SYNC CRADLE WITH 2ND BATTERY SLOT in stock. They replied below:

We do not as yet have a confirmed ETA on this - we are hoping in the
next 4-6 weeks, i.e. in time for Christmas.

Hmm I didn't get mine either, lost in the post I thought. I contacted them and they said they'd send out a new one... If the new one doesn't turn up I will let you know. Perhaps they overestimated with their availability date and are just playing for time?

Seems strange, I guess we can claw back our money via Amazon if nowt turns up. The did send a confirmation of dispatch on the 19th to be fair to them.

I prefer the red one on eBay, they claimed to have sent that today so hopefully I'll get it tomorrow with my phone

I think I'd be wary of these type of batteries until/unless someone had tried them.

It's fair enough with cases etc. but batteries can be a funny thing to be honest and I'd probably not risk a 3rd party battery without a decent brand behind it. If it fries your DHD your warranty is useless.

Bought it ... but still waiting. Said it had been despatched last weekend but not seen it yet. I'll give it until the start of next week then start complaining!

As for 'is it any good', I'll let you know but I guess we're the pathfinders from this respect - with so few people having the phone as yet.

I think you are supposed to put it upside down (phone in)..but then I put the argument of how do you know of notifications to your phone?

Default Flip case for Desire HD

Hi,

The case that I'm using with my Desire HD is the one that was actually made for HD2, so called "HTC HD2 Pouch (HTC P/N PO S511)." HTC - Products - Accessory - PO S511
More info and review here: Original HTC HD2 Leather Flip Case - Dress up your device!
This case is (almost) a perfect case for the Desire HD too and it was listed as an optional accessorie inside a small leaflet that came with the phone. Nevertheless it is not a perfect fit. HD fits inside the case very tight, not a bad problem but the back of the case, where are the openings for camera lens and two LEDs, does not fit 100%. LEDs are hidden behind the back side of the case therefore you cannot use the Flashlight funtion etc. with this. But in any other way it's quite ok case. It keeps the phone slim enough and gives a decent protection.

Question: does anybody know if and when HTC are going to release a similar flip case that is designed from the ground up for the Desire HD?

Looks better to me because this one doesn't do the car panel thing that the 400 does, so that suits my needs

This is a good retailer on amazon with original HTC products and lower prices than those on HTC's official store: FoneM8store @ Amazon.co.uk:
