Ive had the phone for a round about 2 years now and it has been a rollercoater of experiences. But on this roller coaster the downs take you through the bottom of the Earth, and the highs, well are just mere pauses to the next down.
Once I first got my new HTC HD2 in 2010 I thought I it was flashy as! It looked great and touch screen, it was awesome. But slowly this facade of greatness wore away. The phone, first of all, takes an eternity to load once you turn it on, so once out your left with the difficult choice of turning your phone off and conserving life (And even than it can turn on unpreictably)or letting the battery die relatively soon. However you are always left second guessing the battery life, although around 3-4 hours is a good average.
Once on, I swear the manufacturer adds a poltergeist to the phone. I say this because, no word of a lie, I have turned my phone on to find 2% battery and 3 videos of the inside of my pocket. Also this phone lags so much! It is ridiculous. Its lag, ohhhh man, it can be worse than a talk talk connection! But 5 times out of ten it will run smoothly, the other five, well... it can take a while to load a simple sms.
To be fair the camrea on this phone is great, beautiful quality, personally I would say you could take proffesional grade pics on your phone, although the zoom is a bit of an issue. Its also tough. I dropped it down a flight of two stairs, around 20ft high, to no damage AT ALL. My mate Iain dropped an Iphone from 3ft and the screen was completly cracked.
I may not know any technical aspects of the phone, but I give you an honest first hand account. I may not make it sound bad, but I promise you, if anyone tried to rob my phone I'd hug them, give it to them and tell them never to return it
