    I've been a huge fan of HTC Sense on Android and the HD looks amazing. Would you recommend this phone (I don't care about dual core phones btw, Atrix doesn't interest me too buggy)? Also, are there any annoying known issues with the phone?


  2. Ya DHD was hot to bad no US-3G support for TMoUS here :( or I would have got that but DHD (GSM) and TB (CDMA) are the current 4.3" flagship from HTC. After my HD2 was stolen I was looking in to it but after spec detail I found no 3G support so I had to go for something smaller with similar hardware spec of MT4G. DHD is the current HD2 in hardware wise of today's so if you like it then go with it.

    Yeah i recommend it :)

    Annoying issues are, the sound of the speakers aren't loud enough and the battery is bad for the first week or two.
    After you've played with the settings, the phone is amazing ;)

    I also recommend it. Sound is awesome for me (especially when I upgraded from the Xperia X10 which is very quiet). Battery seems to be lasting long considering I've only owned it a day, and use it very very frequently, with wifi, GPS & HSDPA constantly turned on :)

    My favourite feature is the camera, all I can say is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

    Yes its recommended. I switched from an iPhone 3GS. No turning back.

    Been using mine for 3 weeks now. I have only one complaint. Battery life. Other than that... its an awesome all rounder!

    Awesome, thanks for the feedback guys.

    A few quick questions:

    1. Does your phone ever reboot by itself?

    2. Does your phone ever get hot?

    3. Does this phone have the same SMS issue where it'll scroll up when you're writing a text?

    4. How's the sound quality?

    Thanks. :D

    1. No. I think this is only for those who got the OTA update which was pulled by HTC.

    2. No. Haven't heard about this issue.

    3. No, but I don't write many SMSes.

    4. Very good with headphones, but very quiet on speakers.

    I've only had mine for a couple of months and it's rebooted once in that time. I was playing around with a playstation emulator at the time.

    Warm(ish) when doing lots of things at once.

    Not for me. I'm using GO SMS at the moment. All is fine.

    The speaker is not fit for purpose. The sound via headphones is fine.

    Would I recommend the DHD - absolutely. If you can handle the size.

    I'm on the (pulled) update and not had any problems with it TBH.

    awesome, most likely going to be picking up this phone!

    just a few more questions

    1. How does this phone compare to Nexus S (if you've used both)?

    2. Does the ear speaker ever crackle when you're on the phone? Can you turn the phone conversation volume all the way during a call without it crackling?

    3. Is there a notification light that lets you know when you got a message/e-mail? I know the Desire Z has one

    Did recommend it to my dad (in his late 50s) when he was looking to change his bbberry. He loves it, esp whatsapp which is perfect way for me to send him pics of my kids (we live overseas).

    He's actually bit of an App Freak at mo, just called to ask how to set up bluetooth to his new JAG XF,...

    Do a search on here, I responded to a thread comparing the two (I have the DHD, she has the Nexus S) :)

    1. I have had a play with a Nexus S in a phone shop. Very, very nice but I prefer the DHD because of HTC Sense. If you're not interested in HTC Sense then the Nexus S is likely to be better supported by firmware updates. If you want HTC Sense, get the DHD...if you don't want HTC Sense...get the NS.

    2. Never had the speaker crackle in a call.

    3. As previously mentioned...yes...behind the grill.

    Really tempted to pick this up with the price that clove.co.uk are currently offering.

    Have the Desire at the moment. However the price of the LG 2x is also tempting..
