HTC HD7 Review

0. phoneArena 12 Nov 2010, 06:20 posted on

Microsoft and HTC have reunited to give you the HTC HD7. A fine piece of hardware cut from the same cloth as the EVO 4G and the HTC Desire HD. The HTC HD7 sports a 4.3 inch screen, a host of connectivity options, a 5MP camera with autofocus and dual LED flash as well as the enigmatic OS that could be the answer to the above dilemma - Windows Phone 7...

battery life cant be better. like its not possible. if they really wanted a good battery life they would talk to blackberry, but their batteries will continue to suck because they have had plenty of times to upgrade the batteries to be good

You want a sexy touch screen smart-phone with good, solid hardware, but you're stuck on operating systems. You think iPhones are way too expensive, BlackBerry OS doesn't give you a good enough online experience, Android 's cluttered and Symbian's dated. Up until now, you might have been bashing your head against a brick wall, longing for a clean, elegant solution that delivers an up to date user interface coupled with some smooth web browsing.


Palm. WebOS.

Affordable, fantastic online experience, neat (try no apps on the home screen, thank you), and updated. There's a new phone coming out in the coming weeks of 2010. Elegance embodied. :P

HOURS AND HOURS spent with T Mobile and Microsort.
Phone will not sync unless you put your personal info on
Microsift Servers.

Hours wasted trying to sync contacts, calandars.

Junk!

I have used Windows phones since 2002. I still recall the Samsung windows phone that I had purchased at $600 with a 1GB card that were both stolen within a month. Much improvements were made and I was really excited about purchasing the new HD 7 phone to match with my home OS and upgrade from my Touch Pro 2.

Alas, what a disappointment! It is the first phone ever that I have returned. HTC and Microsoft alliance did a poor job on this one. I was sold on the big screen, the ease of moving from one screen to the other, and just the coolness of having windows 7 phone, but little did I know that I was heading to various issues:

1. As mentioned by another individual, it took me hours to try to sync my contacts. I thought that MS would be smart enough to let people sync their info from Windows 6.5 to Windows 7, but hey, sounds like the smart guys disregarded this option. Getting this phone is like starting from scratch. After hours of research, I saw that some people found a work around with Outlook, and it's no easy stuff, given that I am actually a tech guy...

2. Applications, I spent hours trying to install some goodies that I have downloaded over the years, but then again I received messages saying that you can't install CAB files. What a disappointment that was... You have to use Zune software and/or the market place where there's a restricted amount of applications, number that will grow they say...

3. I have many small applications in my flash card, but then again I did not realize that this phone does not have cards' slots, and of course does not take cab files...

It seems like MS is trying hard to follow iPhones and Androids, but if there were behind, now they have just stopped running. It will take me some time before getting another MS phone. I am settling with my Touch Pro2 for now.

HTC HD7 - If you live in HK or China definitely don't buy this phone. Windows is not prepared to download applications to your PC or Phone at this time. I have been trying to solve this problem for more then one month with no success.

I has been experienced by many users that HTC HD7 is useless mobile reason being the user cannot change its ringtone of its own choice, user cannot install third party applications. User cannot download applicaitons other than available at Market Place.
So then what is the use of mobile? Hopeless

HTC should withdraw HTC HD7 from Indian Market. It just a box. In this fact technology I cannot keep my Ringtone as MP3. I cannot instal software available at Net. I cannot instal call recorder, I cannot instal any software which are needed. I cannot share office documents with PC. Very disappointing Mobile as compare low level window mobiles

I thought the Zune software on PC was supposed to act as a sort of converter during sync... How come it can't even add .dat files in my PC to its library? I've been trying to transfer some video files to my HTC-HD7, and so far, no progress! I can't believe I've been sitting here for more than 2 hours...

I have the HTC HD7 9292 which I bought in December. After working for a while it now restarts so often I am unable to use it to anything that takes more than 5 minutes. Why is it so? Any solution? Nana.
