HTC Desire HD Review – My First Android Smartphone

Updated: January 1, 2017 / Home » Smartphone and Tablets » Apps and OS » Google Android

The HTC Desire HD is my second smartphone after Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, unlike the nokia, the HTC is powered by a much more robust OS known as Android. It has lots of apps as oppose to Nokia’s Symbian, which has tons of redundant and boring apps. 10 years of being a Nokia, the only thing I missed the most is the T9 keypad.

To make a long story short, here is the summary after toying with my new toy for 2 days:

  • Very lousy battery life, need to recharge every day. You’ll either need a 1800 mah battery or use apps such as juicedefender
  • Amazing large screen, very sharp
  • The 8MP camera is not as good as Nokia’s N8 camera. Not ideal for moving objects.
  • Lots of games and apps, albeit way behind iPhone’s iOS offering
  • Duplicate functions offered by HTC and Android, can be confusing
  • Somewhat heavy – solid
  • The volume button is too sensitive, so is the touchscreen
  • Comes with multi-touch function – like iPhone
  • Stable Android 2.3 OS
  • Beautifully animated user interface

Yes, it comes with ‘angry bird’ apps. The only drawback is the lousy battery life. All in all, it is an amazing phone.
