A screen and sound system that will blow you away
Yesterday’s tiny screens and squeaky sound couldn’t do justice to all the great stuff you can experience on today’s HTC Desire HD. That’s why we’ve fitted the HTC Desire HD with a huge cinematic 4.3-inch display, Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound. Websites, videos, music, games and apps really rock on your HTC Desire HD.

Maps that never keep you waiting
Tired of waiting - and paying - as maps slowly download? Get there faster. The HTC Desire HD delivers maps with zero wait, zero dead spots and zero data roaming fees. Have trouble knowing which way to turn when using a map? Relax. Maps on the HTC Desire HD always point you in the right direction. Need an ATM, a gas station or a quick bite to eat? With HTC Desire HD all the top spots appear right on your home screen.

A phone you can't lose (well, not easily)
You’re likely to become very attached to your HTC Desire HD. That’s why we had the idea to bring the HTC Sense experience online. Can’t find your phone? Use HTCSense.com to show you that it’s under your sleeping cat. Worried you’ll miss something because you left it at home today? Use HTCSense.com to send and receive texts and to forward your calls to another number. Frantic about personal data on your phone that’s been lost or stolen? Log into HTCSense.com to quickly lock and wipe it remotely.

Capturing the moment
Until recently if you wanted quality images and video you had to carry both a camera and your phone. Not any more. We’ve added HD video recording and an 8MP, dual flash camera with built-in effects (it’s like being able to swap lenses and add filters on the fly). And we’ve made it a snap to share to YouTube or to your big screen TV via DLNA.

Guys, does the black dhd look nicer than the mocha one?



Both look good to me, although bear in mind the mocha is very dark anyway so there is little difference. If you're using a case you won't see any of it anyway due to the screen covering the whole of the front

Thanks for that. I'm feeling the black dhd over the mocha but if I do get the mocha, I don't wanna regret it.

Very good phone, one of only a few that runs Gun Brothers at full speed without any slowdown problems.

HOT on price also

I have this phone only thing I dont like is it isnt very loud. I can bearly hear it!

I have This phone and is brilliant 100% iphone killer but BEWARE battery life is poor ( Check google for reviews) and its also heavy in comparison the the iphone.
But BETTER camera, uses adobe flash unlike i phone, works if your hand is on the side of the phone when calling ;-) ,google market offers so so so so many free apps, pluss the new android ginger bread release is coming to this phone very soon
If your not an apple sheep then buy this phone its brilliant.

you could buy a new ipad1 for this price, still good tho

great phone but it is very big. Do not buy without seeing one first would be my advice.

It's a nice looking phone with an impressive list of features but a bit too big for my liking. I went for the normal HTC Desire in the end earlier this week for £180 less and I'm extremely happy with it. I'd say only pay the extra if a slightly better camera and larger screen size is that important to you

BIG SCREEN yes but if you want a smart phone for web browsing etc the big screen is needed, had a desire and now got the HD is so much easier for webpages not designed for mobile phones

But have a worse operating system, not being able to make phone calls and, IMO, a useless device since it's too big to fit in your pocket and you might as well buy a laptop.

Also:

1) Apple Haters will hate you
2) Apple Fanboys will hate you for not buying an iPad 2.

And this is 10X better.

Seen this a phones4u the other day, its massive!

I want one of these but I'm waiting for the next set of HTC phones to come out so that they drop the price of this one a bit more.

HTC Desire in the end earlier this week for £180 less

where The cheapest I can find it sim free is 320 on amazon

I got it off ebay for 190 quid. lots of people selling unwanted ones that they'd got as free upgrades. worth every penny

Just ordered mine through orange website. (Currently £150 quidco )
Am very lucky to benift from 40% friends and family code. (if someone knows someone that works for orange i would highly reccomend doing this)
Very nice phone, its all about the web browsing on this handset, i think my iphone 4 may get sidelined (for now anyway)

Above poster that got £190, thats amazing price!

Prefer the smaller HTC Desire, which I have. Also own the iPhone 4, which to me has a far superior OS and screen resolution than any Android phone.

Posting using this phone right now, best phone I've ever had, the screen is massive, really great for movies and gaming. Even better spec than the iPhone 4

Amazing price

HTC have some odd wording in the description,
"zero dead spots" not sure how they can guarantee that.
"zero data roaming fees" that's great I'll take it abroad and they'll pay the charges I guess!

I'm currently using a Wildfire in fact typing this on it. Think I may buy the normal Desire next as its a bit smaller than the HD.

zero roaming fees was in regards to maps because they are preinstalled unlike google maps.

The price is smaller as well

I'd recommend buying Google Nexus or Nexus S, which run native Android OS and don't have crappy HTC Sense preinstalled. Sense slows down phones terribly and decreases battery life dramatically. I've got HTC Desire and since I rooted it and installed clean Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 my phone is born again. It's almost twice as fast and battery hold its power waaaay longer than ever before.

Yeh defo, just love the way notifications work, the lack of effective mulit-tasking, lack of widgets and obviously not having the whole of the web. Wow, what a seamless experience.

Root it and install a non-sense rom like Cynagenmod. Problem solved

Previously bought from this company, hidden deep in the small print was a mention that the goods were refurbished. Yes it was refunded but charged me a hefty sum for postage and I had to pay for special delivery post to return.

@Paul - I rooted mine, have no problem with the fact that it voids warranty. Also believe that majority of people wouldn't have a clue what rooting is and how to do it hence Nexus is a better way to go.

Worth remembering that the Nexus S is a Samsung phone not an HTC phone for those that want to stick to HTC (not that it really matters of course but...)

My Desire is rooted and has 2.3 on it (Amethyst ROM) works perfectly and my word is it quick now thought the speed increase from 2.1 > 2.2 was good but getting rid of sense and 2.3 WOW performance is amazing it's like a new phone again

As im kinda new to rooting, i take it that everything camera etc is working fine ... also is your phone a locked handset or network free ..??
Might have a go this weekend, you recomend any sites with guide .??

I have to say something... ios is not a superior os to the android os!

The only thing I really like about the iphone is the touch... meaning like pinch to zoom or when scrolling, as soon as you place your finger on the screen it responds instantly and smoothly too. With my htc desire, it's not as good in that regard.

Oh, also iphone's app store has got nicer games. I'm sure you have to pay for a lot of them though.

As for android os then you can customise it to look and work the way you want it to... plus browsing is far easier and better!

Yes, everything works fine and you can also sim unlock it. Have a look on xda-developers and install LeeDroid

@daysp03 - I'm running Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 (the latest one), it's mod by Oxygen group (version 2.0.1). Will never ever go back to HTC stock ROM with sense. As I mentioned before - it's twice as fast, as it holds battery twice as long. It's just amazing, and original keyboard is so good. I haven't bumped into any problems yet, but it widely known that Gingerbread 2.3.3 doesn't support 720p video recording (as for now). My advice is - root it, try different ROM and make up your mind. Guaranteed you won't look back. All the wisdom is here: forum.xda-developers.com/for…628 Go for Oxygen ROM and forget all based on Froyo and sense based ROMS. If you require any help, just get in touch with me
