Faulty digitizers on the HTC HD2 are common in the UK?
This article contains unofficial information.
Sales may indicate how popular a specific smartphone can be, but on the flip side, numerous repairs on the same handset could point to some construction issues. The HTC HD2 became the face of Windows Mobile with its slick design and overall high-end specs that easily catapults it from the rest of the competition. However, mobile phone repair centers in the UK are seeing an unusually high amount of units being brought in for repairs due to faulty digitizers. Turn On Your Mobile proprietor Mark Pollak said about the problem, “This is a massive issue. We are getting 10 requests a day to service this part on the HD2. If the digitizer breaks, often the LCD has to be replaced as well. And we are having trouble getting hold of new digitizers.” Aside from that, there also seems to be stability issues with the software as they see units that freeze and crash constantly – which of course is remedied by performing a soft reset by removing the battery. Even though they are seeing issues with the venerable smartphone, HTC has yet to come out officially on the matter.
