The HTC Desire HD employs one of the biggest screens today. This massive screen measures at 4.3 inches and this would give other touch screen mobiles something to think about. Despite the massive screen, the phone measures just 123 x 68 x 11.8 mm and this would be read as compact in most dictionaries around the world. The weight of the phone is also fairly low at 164 grams.
The weight and the dimensions would not be the features that would attract anyone to the phone at the first glance. The impressive 4.3 inch touch screen display is S-LCD and can support a maximum resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. This makes the 16 million colours that it would be capable of support, appear even more extraordinary.
The phone’s impressive feature list does not end with the display alone. It includes sound technologies like Dolby Mobile and SRS sound to bring the best possible sounds on to a mobile. It is only when you hear the sound from this phone along with the sound from another phone in the same class, do you realize the scale of the HTC’s achievements when it comes to sound on this phone. There is also a 3.5 mm audio output for connecting other headsets. The connectivity side of things are being filled up by the Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA and 3G options. All these wireless connectivity options make the Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS functions in this phone look very primitive.
The 3G options let you make the best use of the 14.4 Mbps download speed support and 5.76 Mbps upload speed support. The camera too is one of the most impressive at 8 megapixels. This camera can shoot images in a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels making it on par with most of the standalone digital cameras that are available for sale today. The imaging side of things is further enhanced by the dual LED flash and HD video recording capabilities.
Geotagging is another feature that uses the GPS option of this phone to maximum use by storing the information of the exact location a particular image was taken. The phone runs on the Android OS and this is the latest 2.2 version. There is a Stereo FM radio with RDS on this device that is available for around £40 per month on a two year contract.
