Not what I expected
The only two positive factors about this phone is the screen size and the camera.
Apparently the 1gig processor is not enough.. it gets real slow all the time.. I have to clean it the hole OS twice a day for it to be smooth and i had it.. It runs out of signal all the time.. Im using T-mobile and you can flip the screen for texting but not for the rest of the tasks.. It does it for a mili second and then goes back to the regular screen..
Was a great phone, but personally liked my iPhone better
I got this phone thinking that I'd like it because of me wning windows mobile phones before. Well I wanted my iPhone back as that was the platform was used to so i went back to

Not the best battery life..
1Ghz Processor - Super fast!
Giant 4.3 inch screen
A camera flash that can blind a person
Fun to use
Battery life- Doesn't even last me a day, even after an overnight charge. It was at 100%. I left it on standby for about 4 hours, I came back and the battery was at 40-50%
Large, maybe too large for some of you.
Windows mobile. Could be a pro or a con depending on your preference. I personally like both Android and WM.
90% GREAT 10% BAD

I've had the HD2 for a little while now and I feel that it is a really good phone. I've experienced windows mobile before so nothing really new to me. I've messed with android before & feel like its a better operating system then windows mobile.
Nice 4.3" display
5 megapixel camera w/ dual LED flash is nice
Nice animation in media player & photos
In call speaker volume is horrible
Should've gone with android instead of windows mobile
Phone freezes or turns of every now & then
Windows Marketplace isn't as good as Android marketplace
Overall it is a really good phone but with all the new phones coming out I would not get it unless you really just want the phone. Wait for HTC's new phones to drop. Phone fits good in pocket & not to big to talk on. i give it a 4 out of 5
Should have gone with Android
When I went for the HD2 I had high hopes despite the fact that I have never been fond of Winmo. I came from an Motorola Droid so I was used to a fast OS like Android.
Windows Mobile 6.5 instead of Android 2.0
Lack of apps
Horrible battery life (to be expected with the big screen)
By far my biggest con with this phone was the fact that it froze up so many times. having to pull the battery wasa real annoyance. The phone would freeze everytime I got a text message, and I would have to wait five minutes for the phone to even react to my touch.
I have an iPhone 4 now, and I would have never purchased this phone, or stayed with the Droid.
Phone Has its ups and downs
I GAVE THIS PHONE A 3.0 BECAUSE I HAD THE MOTOROLA CLIQ PRIOR TO GETTING THIS PHONE AND NOW I WISHED I HAD THAT PHONE ALL OVER AGAIN. I REGRETTED WHEN I GOT THIS PHONE AND IT DIDN'T NEARLY AS MANY APPS AS THE CLIQ HAD. IT'S GOOD FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED A BIG SCREEN AND IT DOES WHAT YOU WANT IT DO MOST OF THE TIME. IT DOES FREEZE UP FROM TIME TO TIME SO IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR IT TO PROCESS THE INFORMATION. OVERALL I WOULD STILL RECOMMEND THIS PHONE TO SOMEONE.
HTC HD2 First Hand Experience
Pros: Excellent picture quality, no doubt it beats other smart phone screens. Loads of application. Loaded movie transformer. 16Gig. external memory.
I bought this handset in may 2010. The screen use to freeze once in a while, but since yesterday it is stuck on the same screen. No matter what you do, I took the batteries out tried rebooting the phone but still the same result. More over the HTC folks have a lousy policy and customer service. When I called them up today the lady over the phone first had me run couple of reset steps but the device didn't budge, any way after being on the phone for 1/2 hour she transferred me to the another department. Here the guy was more interested in taking my credit card details than to learn about the problem. Anyways he tried to reassure me that mighty HTC may not charge my card if they will find no physical damage to the phone. Now the next step will be that you will have to send the handset to their repair center in Texas and will have to pay the inbound shipping charges, not only this when their technician will run a diagnostic test on my phone to see what might have gone wrong they will charge $ 39.00 for their generous services, regardless that I paid for this phone almost $500.00. Folks my first hand experience say that its a lousy phone with a terrible product warranty, where all you be getting after spending your money is frustration and yeah a 3 week long wait for you phone to be repaired. I would say if you folks have any other option on smart phone, avoid HTC. It really sucks, because no matter how better its HD2 screen could be, it doesn't function the way it should, and in my case has neither been able to do a job what even a basic mobile hand set should do- Making Phone Calls".
Windows mobile is not dead yet...
I know windows mobile is outdated already and many just hate it without even giving it a chance.
I had htc phones with windows for 5 years; yes it has many issues and a newer version is overdue for at least 2 years; but htc did a great job of integrating their sense UI to give it a modern and user friendly feel, and I must say that after owning both the hd2 and the evo it wasn't easy to let the hd2 go, even with its minor sofware flaws it's easy to get attached to hd2, but 1)I still was under a contract with sprint 2) sprint's network is more reliable, at least in my area 3) I have a bitter feeling against microsoft for not developing a newer version of windows mobile before or at least by the time android came out, now it's too late, I left for android and the evo.
but the truth is htc helped windows mobile to fight another day with the hd2. the way htc sense UI runs on this phone is very smooth and sexy; I even like how sense runs on the hd2 more than what they did with the evo. the hd2 is more colorful and there are so many ways to customize sense to the way you like.
many have also complained about how this phone freezes, well it's true but htc and tmobile released an updte for the software to fix that problem. it was the htc messaging client that was causing the problem, so no more freezing.
if you are happy with t-mobile's service and don't mind to reboot your phone every few days, there's no reason not to get the hd2.
as far as apps, well there are less for windows mobile but they are really good, with android there are much more but not all of them are stable. office mobile, bing with navigation, my phone, kinoma play, pocket player, uhhh I still miss them.
this phone is by far the best phone that i have used so far i learned how to get the android market on my device so thats an extra plus for me...
PROS: the screen, swip method on the phone, and the office mobile on the device...
CONS: no front facing camera....and i really thinks thats is
