PhoneArena has weighed in with their review of the HTC HD2 and came to this conclusion:
There is no way a cell phone equipped with such a huge screen and powerful components would fail to appeal to eager high-tech buffs. The truth is, we see no reason not to recommend the HTC HD2 to anyone who feels overwhelmingly compelled to get a device with such a spectacular hardware. In terms of software and interactivity, it delivers everything that any self-respecting Windows Mobile smartphone offers and then some, adding capacitive screen and a lot of preinstalled applications, which make it not just head and shoulders, but light years away from its WM rivals today. The only WM smartphone that has a fighting chance against it is the Samsung Omnia II I8000. Personally, weÂ´d go for the HD2 for its capacitive screen and better performance, but if we were predominantly focused on video playback, we would gladly sacrifice the extra 0.6 inches for the perfect video codec support of the Omnia II and its brilliant AMOLED screen â€“ even if a bit smaller, its image quality is incomparably superior to any LCD display.
Ultimately, we say â€œyesâ€ to the HTC HD2. This is a great handset that offers a lot with any respect. WhatÂ´s more, considering the presence of the Sense interface, the HD2 escapes the fate of being qualified as just â€œanother high-tech toyâ€, because it comes with functions in the forefront of todayÂ´s social networking, something that will certainly appeal to a good part of the now numerous people using various social networking services.
They do complain about in call sound quality and camera only gets a 7/10 but they still award an overall excellent 9 out of 10.
