I LOVE THIS PHONE!!
The HTC Touch HD is a Windows based smartphone with a gorgeous sleek 3.8" LCD Flat touch sensitive screen (800x480) pixels, with HTC's user interface, Touch FLO 3D, giving you an amazing viewing display, (very crisp and clear), even slightly larger than the raved about iPhone.
Applications are easy to use, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and the built in GPS reciever, all of which i have no problems with. The large screen on the phone makes the HTC into a brilliant mobile video player, it also handles streaming audios well too. I have watched many a film on my HTC!
The speakers on the phone are pretty good also, making Windows Media Player a very likeable feature.
The expansion slot takes a micro SD memory card and i have in mine a 16GB one, which enables me to store everything i need , more than adequate for most people.
There are a couple of down sides though, I am not terribly impressed with the 5x camera, it is slow to get going and unless the conditions are perfect, the quality of the pictures are not going to be great!
Another very annoying fact is.....NO keypad lock! Very frustrating when you go to make or receive a call and by the time you have your phone out of your pocket or bag, you find that you are already calling someone that you probably dont want to speak to, also ending a call can be a bit tricky, as the screen is very sensitive and when you press end call, sometimes it starts to dial again. There is a built in phone lock, but this means you have to type in your pin each time you want to use your phone, not satisfactory at all.
Battery life is very good, i usually only have to charge mine twice a week, i have had phones in the past where i have had to charge them every day!
On the whole the HTC Touch HD is a beautiful looking phone, incorperating most of the features that you could ever want from a phone. It hasn't got the same amount of Applications that the iPhone has, but Hey!! it's less than half the price.
Overall, a very good phone for the price tag, although it could do with being updated to Windows 7.
Even with its few downsides, i love this phone!!
Summary: An excellent phone for the price tag
