HTC Desire HD
Advantages: Brilliant functionality, great screen, Android system is good and easy to use
Disadvantages: Very poor battery life
I have owned the HTC Desire HD for just over a year now, and can say I do really like the phone. I'd love the phone if the battery were actually able to last a day, however. Its functionality is brilliant, has a super clear screen with a very good camera, is fast, lots of storage for apps etc and does nearly everything that you want it to. With having the Android operating system there are an abundance of apps you can download, so you are guaranteed never to get bored.
However, you will be bored if you want to use your phone a lot and forget to take your charger with you - my Desire HD struggles to make it through the day with moderate usage on 3G. This is the major downfall of the Desire HD and one that really frustrates me. Often if I am out and about I refrain myself from using my phone to check on Twitter etc so that I can save the battery to make it last through the day. Often I have had to resort to taking my old Nokia 3510i out with me as a backup.
To sum up, the phone functions brilliantly and does everything you can possibly want. However I would advise against it if you spend a lot of your time out and about using your phone and cannot access a plug socket!
Summary: Excellent phone but needs a far better battery to cope with it.
