The HTC HD2 refuses to die with Android Nougat port27
Lollipop, Marshmallow, and even Windows Phone 8, and Windows RT. Seven years later, that love and passion for the HTC HD2 is still alive and well with the phone's most recent update to Android 7.0 Nougat.Despite some devices failing to get promised software updates after just months of launching, one handset that's proven to receive timely updates time and time again is the HTC HD2. If the HD2 doesn't sound entirely familiar to you, that's because it was originally a Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone that launched all the way back in November of 2009.

Although the HTC HD2 isn't the most functional with the latest update, it's just more proof that this is a smartphone that refuses to die.
