HTC HD2 for T-Mobile Review

HTC HD2 for T-Mobile Review
In this review of the T-Mobile HD2 we are focusing our attention mainly on the new features of the smartphone.
For more details, see our review of the HTC HD2 for Europe, which is almost identical.

Introduction:

At long last, one of the greatest Windows Mobile powered devices to have ever been conceived has finally touched down to an awaiting market that has been starved from experiencing a truly mammoth smartphone. T-Mobile has been fortunate enough to lay claim to possibly one of the last great Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones of our time with the HTC HD2 and will surely have a huge following. Interestingly enough, it’s entering the US market, which rarely sees any major standouts in the Windows Mobile front; possibly except for the HTC Touch Pro2. With Android at full steam, the HTC HD2 is looking to make a stand because there is just more to it than meets the eye.

The package contains:
•    HTC HD2
•    Wall Charger
•    USB Cable
•    Stereo Headset
•    Start Guide

Design:

This version is identical to the European version in almost every way, but there is no denying that it exudes one of the best industrial designs seen on any phone to date. Although it may prove to be one massive device when holding in the hand, its thin profile makes it equally impressive due to the fact that it holds within itself a mind-boggling large display. The HTC HD2 gets treated to some fine material that adds to its overall appeal, durability, and workmanship – which all goes to show the impressive nature of this smartphone. If there is anything that the HTC HD2 can claim for itself in terms of design, it has to be that it truly embodies the essence of what near perfection looks like.


Feasting your eyes to its larger than life 4.3” WVGA capacitive touchscreen with support for 65k colors is utterly extraordinary and breath taking at first – there are just very few devices that are capable of captivating the attention of people like the HD2. Every inch of the display explodes with rich detail and subtle colors that will leave everyone gazing at it for the first time to see their jaw drop to the floor. Aside from the volume rocker, the only other dedicated hardware buttons are found below the display – which have a pretty distinct feel to them. On the rear, you can find the 5-megapixel auto-focusing camera with dual-LED flash and the speaker phone found next to it. After removing the metallic back cover, you gain access to the battery, SIM card slot, and microSD slot.
