A Closer Look At The Superb HTC Desire HD

The HTC Desire HD has proven to be wildly popular in the UK. Until recently it was the manufacturer’s flagship smartphone, offering power, performance, style and much more. In this article I will give an overview of what the phone offers so you can decide if it is the right smartphone for you.


The handset itself is rather large at 123x 68x 11.8mm, but this can be forgiven due to the size of the screen. At a whopping 4.3 inches it boasts LCD capacitive touchscreen technology and has a resolution of 480x 800. This means that the display quality is top notch, making it and excellent phone for multimedia enthusiasts, with photos, videos, games and web pages displayed in the utmost clarity and quality with rich colour rendering (up to 16 million individual colours displayed).


The HTC Desire HD ships with Android 2.2 (Froyo) as standard, but this can be updated to later versions like version 2.3 (Gingerbread), the latest version of the Android software for smartphones. Alongside a 1 GHz Scorpion processor, users can expect high performance from the device; the benefits of this powerful processor include efficient multitasking, fast loading of web pages and impressive graphics when playing games on the phone. The OS also allows users to browse over 100,000 apps in the Android Market, which can be downloaded almost instantly to the phone, increasing the functionality of the device (and allowing users to customise their phone) to a high degree. 


The camera on the HTC Desire HD is very impressive. Boating 8 megapixels, it has a resolution of 3264x 2448, so the resulting digital photos are of superb quality. A whole host of image enhancing features is included as standard so users can edit, chance the exposure settings and apply effects to their heart’s content. Additionally, the camera can also shoot HD video footage; in 720p HD it is superb quality, and thanks to DLNA connectivity users are able to wirelessly stream their handiwork to a compatible TV.


Web browsing is a pleasure with the HTC Desire HD. With whopping download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps in areas with 3G coverage (via HSDPA), web pages load almost instantly, and the web browsing software (part of the HTC Sense UI package) offers an intuitive and interactive experience with many innovative features. Wi-Fi networks can also be utilised, offering an alternative means of internet connectivity, and is also ideal for those on a limited data plan.


There is so much to like about the HTC Desire HD. Whether you are a multimedia enthusiast, avid social networker or a business user looking for a productivity companion, the HTC Desire HD is definitely worth a closer look.
