Screen in sunlight test and Coreplayer test (click for larger versions)
There is only one review that matters (and we are not talking about the inanely stupid Gizmodo one). Mobile-Review have published their HTC HD2 review, and its quite a massive read, with detailed battery tests, pictures and video in different lights and comparison with many other devices.
The quality of communication have no complaints, the unit "catches" the network is stable, as most other phones. Volume earpiece is comfortable to talk in almost any environment, there is a stock volume. CALL speaker sounds slightly above average, it’s not as loud as in the HTC Touch Pro2, but if you select only the standard melody, then you hear the call even in the subway. Vibration weaker than average, this should be expected, the motor simply does not suffice to undermine the 150-gram case, you can feel the vibration, if we put the apparatus in the pocket of his trousers, jeans or while walking, she no longer felt.
Cost HTC HD2 will be 29 990 rubles at the beginning of sales, which should start in late November or early December (probably still the end of November). Initially the company planned to establish a price tag around 32 000 rubles, but eventually lowered it below 30. As a user receives for the money? The best among the phones and the biggest screen is capacitive, the most productive platform and it is likely that many will appreciate, a quality housing with a solid stack, stylish appearance, as well as the proprietary interface HTC, which, frankly, with each new version becomes more and more convenient.
As the cost of the apparatus is not much more expensive than the flagship Samsung (i8000), or HTC MAX 4G, but in terms of opportunities is HD2 looks interesting. Cons, which I can mention are:
"Kutsyy" supplied (still before us the flagship, and included no charger glasses or car holder)
The large size of the shell (whatever one may say, but HTC HD2 is huge, and this will have to accept)
Lack of joystick or navigation keys or trackball
The lack of quick access to the application manager in the current firmware
No other significant drawbacks I do not see. Proceeding from this list, you can roughly imagine how interesting HTC HD2 can be to you personally. It remains only to add that HTC has once again managed to create a flagship, which at the time becomes the most attractive set of features and technical characteristics of the device on the market, not only among Windows Mobile-devices. The first HTC Touch was interesting in the market, Touch Diamond drew the attention of the mass user and the Touch HD has become the most technologically advanced machinery at the time. HTC HD2 combines the features of the Touch HD, and Diamond, I will not say that it will become as popular as the Touch Diamond, but the device certainly will go out beyond the interest alone, "tehnogikov, despite its size and high cost. When you see the HD2, understand it themselves.
