    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    I'd had my HD2 since wednesday now and love it. It is fast(it would be with a 1ghz processor). It does have a lot of power saving options though, like if it's in pocket, the backlight will switch off and switch on automatically when you take it out of your pocket.

    I ran the battery fully down on thursday, to condition it properly(supposedly with all new mobile battery's, you need to fully charge and discharge them 3 times to get max power from the battery). When I was trying to kill it below 10%, it would not die, even with wifi, bluetooth, youtube etc, it took ages to fully deplete.

    It is a great phone, and battery life is not as bad as people think(there is a program I heard of on XDA where you can switch the phone to airplane mode overnight and switch back on the next morning, which will save a lot of battery.

    If you want a windows mobile(or windows phone as microsoft now call the OS), this is the best phone out there. It should also be upgradeable to windows mobile 7 next year. The size of the phone makes it a lot easier to type and it is a gorgeous looking phone. I used to have a kaiser/tytn 2 and didn't think I'd be able to manage easily without a hardware keyboard, but typing on the large screen is easy.
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    The number 1 main advantage blackberries have over Windows mobile is that they are simpler to use and manage. Windows mobiles take a lot more user training and effort to set up the infrastructure for, however on business tarriffs, they are a lot less money to run.

    Ah! yes that's what i've been doing, but manually - i think it's called pocket alarm. switches between different profiles?

    I did apply a few tweaks which made a huge difference to battery power, you might of seen them on there as well - enabling power management here and there.

    But now i've gone back to the stock settings just to see, as i have run out and recharged the battery a few times, that might of been the thing making the difference.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    According to my HTC Magic it's been 4d 4h 55m since it was last unplugged, and my battery is just below 40% (although to give balance I've also had it drain completely in < 24hours before!). Battery life on a smartphone is so dependant on usage patterns and background services - a good task manager program is invaluable...

    Which one are you using? I'm currently using Advanced task killer which so far has been pretty good.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    I've got the 'new phone' itch and have my eye on the HD2. I've got a few more months to go before my current contract runs out which should mean any long term ownership/usage issues have been highlighted.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    I've been looking for a new sim free/unlockable phone for SWMBO.

    She currently uses a PDA with WinMo 6.0 and the ability to sync tasks is a must, but sadly the iPhone doesn't do that so I ruled that out, but the HD2 looks like a good bit of kit.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Well I've just phoned o2 to see if they have had any in stock, my iPhone contract is now due, and I'm considering moving over - really want to get my hands on one, so I can see how it feels etc. compared to the iPhone that is!!

    Got loads of iPhone fanboi's in my office, and a couple of HTC users. Really just want to get a solid review on the handset, and see what it feels like for myself.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    been a week or so now with this phone, still getting to grips with what win mo has to offer, (need to try a work out remote desktop)

    apparantly HTC will offer an upgrade to win mo 7 once it drops? But that isn't offical word though.

    The sense interface and intergration really is awesome

    Yeah heard the rumours as well - as the hd2 spec is the new requireed spec for WM7 - any news on the pink tinge on the camera??

    Last I heard HTC were saying that its a software fault and not hardware, but only some people have this problem?

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Had mine since yesterday lunch.
    Dont like the screen being as sensitive as it is, hopefully a screen protector will sort this.
    Copilot live sucks donkey balls.
    The rest of it I like, just need to find a nice skin for it.
    WM7 would be nice but I cant see it being free tbh..

    Hmm yea something I was going to sugest is maybe people hold off on this phone till that camera issue is confirmed for sure - because I don't seem to have that issue, then again I haven't tested properly.

    Even they are abit mixed up, someone from them mentioned a hardware fualt and then quickly it switched to software. will wait and see about the patch/update!

    Gotta agree with Trig also on the screen - a bit too sensitive. turning off feedback helps a lil, but not totally.

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Well I just found out my iPhone contract isnt due till the 17th now, so I might just wait to see how HTC fix some of the issues. Problem is I dont know who to go to for network coverage now, o2 seem to be the most expensive compared to voda and now t-mobile!

    Re: HTC HD2 Phone

    Yea hopefully that will be soon, it's in there best interest to get that sorted, quick sharp

    I'm on t-mobile myself, coverage seems pretty good - but I'm on one of those rolling 30 day contracts, which includes unlimited (within reason) data use.
