The phone that just won't die
2 April, 2013
This phone was released back in late 2009 and I purchased it in early 2010 (right after its price dropped).
This was the first 4.3" screen phone in the market. I have been using it since three years now and I must say that the phone won't die. The hardware is great, RAM could have been a bit better though. Design-wise, I seriously doubt any other phone has been able to impress me as much as it does (till date).
If I look at other gadgets with 4.3" screen size, the overall phone size will be a lot more than that of HTC HD2. The hard keys at the bottom of the phone is a plus too.
Too bad it cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 or later versions, but for tech savvy guys who want to try out android on this phone can use a customized ROM on the SD Card. I won't suggest to root the device as that would nullify your warranty.
Display is pretty good and the processing speed, even though quite less by todays' standards, works like a charm if you do not overwhelm the device beyond its capacity. Sound quality is average, camera quality is average too. Battery life depends totally on the usage. If you are using 3G, am afraid the phone wont last for a day, but on 2G, with a few hours of music and browsing, the device will happily give a full day back up!
For the price it is currently available at, its a very good buy :) Hope the review helps.
