    Htc Desire HD screen resolution: [​IMG]

    So my question is will the Htc Desire HD have huge icons because of the higher resolution and larger screen?

    It will almost certainly not have a higher resolution than the desire. It will likely have larger icons than the desire due to the increased screen size at the same resolution.

    Edit: also that second picture you posted is not the Desire HD.

    To increase resolution, you are increasing the amount of pixels in the same space.

    As icons are sized by a number of pixels, icons generally get smaller with higher resolutions, because the pixels are smaller.

    But the phone is the same resolution with a larger screen size = larger icons. However the same amount of screen real estate is being used so it's not really a big issue.

    I'm not answering specifically based on the phone. The OP didn't seem too sure on how resolution affects icon size so I'm just giving an example.

    currently I am unsure what the HD's resolution will be.

    Fair enough, however it is all leaks point to it having 800x480 resolution (froyo and eclaire are both limited to 854 x 480 anyway so there would have to be some serious modification to allow higher) and that's what the EVO had so it's a pretty safe bet this will have it also.
