The experience was a quick and painful reminder that no matter how pretty the window dressing is here, HTC has staged its fashion show in a building that should be scheduled for demolition.

The HTC HD2 is simply the best Windows Mobile phone out there, but its appeal could be hampered by its size and the upcoming Windows Phone 7 series.

If you've got some undying loyalty to Windows Mobile, be it personal or work-enforced, life won't get any better than with the HD ... If you don't, then just wait this one out. Trust me: for hardware like this, the payoff will be worth it.

Elegant, Fast, with a brilliant UI, the Touch HD2 is really something that I was expecting for a very long time in the Window Phones world.

If Microsoft sorts out its Marketplace with a few more (and cheaper) apps, as well as a couple of firmware tweaks, this could easily be the phone of the year, even at this late stage ... until then it will have to be content with being the best 'business device' on the market by a country mile.

HTC HD2 has it all to be a winner – groundbreaking hardware, inventive software, high performance and solid design. HTC have struck the right balance with the HD2 and they are certainly giving the competition a run for their money.

The HD2 lives up the hype. It's fast, gorgeous, a joy to use, and attracts attention wherever it goes. It's fantastic to finally see the usability of a capacitive touchscreen married with the power of Windows Mobile.

With Windows Phone 7 coming out in the fall, it’s hard to overlook an underlying OS that has been around as long as Windows Mobile. That being said, HTC has really overcome the main usability factor with their gorgeous screen and brilliant user interface.

The Phone looks nice and sleek, It may look Chunky when you see the image, but its slimmer then the iphone :) The screen is perfect for browsing the internet and the response is great (even While using Mobile internet) I have used other smart phones, Nokia N97, Iphone and the browsing isn’t the...

It probably isn't fair for me to write a review after only owning the phone for two days but I figure with all the neggative press it's been getting amongst the "average joe" user I thought I'd try and brighten things up (hope I'm not jinxing my future experience!)....

Ok first of all I am coming from a jail broken iPhone, with expectations for both business and personal use. So there will be comparisons. First impression was WOW this is a well built phone with an incredible screen. Starting up it felt very familiar but different. The sense UI can carry the...

I purchased the T-Mo verison of the HD2 specifically because I was planning on switching to Canadian carrier Wind Mobile. After reading all the reviews of the European version, I was still stunned at how thin the HD2 is in person. The build quality is top notch. It feels like a solid piece of...

I'm not a fan of the physical keyboard. If there's no better option I'll use it but since the 1st gen iPhone, the soft keyboard's ability to know what I wanted to type is much better than the hard keyboards ability to figure out which of the tiny keys my oversized fingers were...

I love this phone. Of course I used with the Windows Mobile 6.5 until I got my next phone then I installed an Android Rom onto it. It is my second phone and with me at all times. Mostly for the apps though.

The HTC HD2. I was completely impressed by reviews, and hands on by the mobile godz. The huge touchscreen and hackability of Windows lured me to picking one up on launch day. Big mistake. After literally 45 seconds i was unimpressed. Unfortunately I didn't return it quick enough which led to...

Running Android its still competitive with new 4.3" devices. CPU speed is fine, the screen can suffer in sunlight and sucks the battery hard if turned up. Overall seems silly to upgrade to say a SG2s.
