HTC HD2 for T-Mobile Review

0. phoneArena posted on 26 Apr 2010, 08:42

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 - the HTC HD2...

I actually don't have any real problems with t-mobile's data network. Web pages and emails work fine, no need to reset any data. I think the phone is the problem. I've used tmobile's 3g data with the g1, the cliq, my nokia n900, EDGE data with my n900 and cliq and an E71, and regular GPRS data with a Sony Ericsson m600i and never had a data reset problem. May be the phone. T-Mobile 3g coverage does suck balls outside of major metropolitan areas though.

This phone is the biggest POS I have ever owned. I am paying to have it turned into an android.

Just dropping by... I have had this phone for a while and I think that it is a great phone but is limited by its OS. Honestly, by spec's alone, the phone can be a great smartphone that has the possibility of being one of the top line phones in its class. However, I, along with many others, find that WinMo 6.5 is behind in the race with Android and iOS. The lack in user friendly interface and lack of apps (compared to the Android Market etc.) have crippled WinMo indefinitely. Also, there is lack of information on a future update for the new WP7, so don't buy the phone expecting an update (still unknown). Luckily, through the use of the XDA Forum, you can complicatedly,flash (or modify) your phone to run Android 2.3.1 (this is what I'm doing now). Since, my phone is now running Android, I can say that I'm pretty satisfied with my phone. It is a great phone and is relatively cheap compared to other smartphones in this day and age.

BOTTOM LINE: Great phone, limited by WinMO, however there is an oppurtunity to use 3rd party programs to modify your phone to OS's such as Android or even WP7 (slightly buggy)

This is the worst phone I have EVER had, I've had this phone now for over a year and I have gone through 8 replacements. I am constantly having issues with the phone overheating and draining the battery, disconnecting from the network, shutting off on it's own, not being able to power on phone, you name this issue and this phone has it. I would NEVER recommend this phone to anyone nor do the T-mobile reps that I have spoken to. I was told by a t-mobile rep that this phone didn't last on the shelves long because there were so many complaints and issues with it.

The phone overal is able to keep up with simple email and web browsing. However there are very few apps available. The phone over time becomes very slow and requires frequent rebooting, as it freezes often

after trying several windows phone 7 phones, i decided to settle with the HTC HD2 because I heard you can run android and windows phone 7. I am very happy with my HD2 running windows phone 7, so i have not tried android on it yet. the only complaint i have with the phone is that the reception seems to drop a lot when you hold it towards the bottom. other than that, i love everything about this phone.

I would just like to say that this phone may be the best phone made in the last decade. It has been 3 years since this phone was released in the US and it is still being used. It is now capable of running android 4.4, a ROM that was created in the midst of quad-core superphone. It makes me happy to know that there are some phones that truely do last, especially in this era.
