HTC Desire HD
Advantages: Large clear screen, good quality camera, HTC Sense
Disadvantages: Quite big, expensive
The HTC Desire HD runs off the android operating system, which also runs on many other phones such as Samsung, LG etc.
However, HTC have their "Sense" system installed on the phone, which is essentially a modified version of android that looks a little different. The gadgets included in sense are mixed, some are very useful whilst others aren't.
The hardware of the phone is impressive. The large 4.3 inch screen is very clear and very sensitive. The screen makes up the whole front of the phone, plus a few buttons - this means the phone is large but not too large.
The phone physical buttons on the bottom allow you to go back, go to the home and menus etc. The volume control on the side completes the physical buttons.
Camera wise, this phone is great - the camera is 8 megapixels, clear, easy to use and produces great quality pictures.
Compared to other android phones it is a little expensive, but it is better than the majority of android phones due to its great camera and HTC sense providing many good apps and widgets.
Summary: Worth the money, but only if you will use all of it's features
