First touch with the HTC Desire HD

Had a chance to feel and play with the latest HTC Desire HD recently. In a sentence, "I like it!"

First touch with the HTC HD7

Was in the area and decided to POP over to DeeJay to have a feel of the famous Windows HD7.

Here's some of my first thoughts...

I have to say, first thing that hits you is the size and build. Beautiful.

The responsiveness of the touch screen is up there with the best. Flicking around the home screen and in and out of the menu was smooth.

Tried typing out message and it was so easy because of the screen size. Very promising.

Photo quality is very good too. Switched in and out of the gallery and photos. So smooth.

This might even give its twin brother the Desire HD a run.

Meeting of the droids

A Nexus One and a HTC Desire. Both Froyo'd. Wonder how the Nexus 2 will be.

HTC Desire HD vs iPhone 4

Best of both worlds. Hard to decide when it comes down to it.

The HTC Desire HD (I still can't wait to get one)
  • Beautiful form factor. (Who wouldn't want a 4.3" screen?)
  • SRS and Dolby supported.
  • Latest flagship for the Android camp.
  • Updated HTC Sense UI
  • Seamless integration with social media - You can view all your FaceBook, Twitter updates fused into your Address books. What a touch.
  • A terrible battery life - one site claimed only 5 hours of usage.
  • Insufficient Media capabilities (how do you fight against Apple's iPod features??)
  • Some say a washed out screen resolution, when compared to the HTC Desire.
  • Heavy? (I'm on the fence with this one. Seriously, how heavy is 164g?)

The Apple iPhone 4
  • Its an iPhone. (Guess that says it all)
  • Retina display. Having used one for a brief period of time. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The screen made everything look beautiful. Almost 3D popping out beautiful.
  • Sleeker form factor, glass front and back (not necessarily a great plus point)
  • FaceTime.
  • Better camera capabilities (than the 3GS)
  • I could go on here, but really, you DON'T know about the iPhone 4? You must have been born yesterday.
  • Arguably, the iPhone 3GS would be good enough. It does everything the 4 can do, especially in terms of the new iOS 4.
  • Glass body isn't quite smash-proof. But then, what phone is right?
  • Must sync with iTunes for everything.
Its a tough choice.
Both cost SGD888 (or BND)(if you're gunning for the 16GB iPhone 4 that is), both offer the latest from both camps. It really does come down to this question; Which camp do you support?

Test test with Droid-Blogger

Saw this a couple of days ago and I tried to snap a picture. Using Retro Camera on my HTC Desire, turned out alright.

Uploading this post with Droid-Blogger app. Not bad so far. Not bad.

HTC HD2 on Android

This really intrigues me. Running Android on a HD2. The 4.3", the form factor. One word. Beautiful. Now with Android running on it, what more could you ask for.
