"Bad battery life bad browsers doesn't remember settings"0.5 starson by dipuislam
Pros: HD video is good but awful sound recording
Cons: Bad battery life, bad browsers, often doesn't remember settings, awful
Summary: I had an iphone and wanted to get a android device, HTC was supposed to make the best Android and their Desire HD looked really appealing. SO bot it for around 800SGD and made the biggest mistake.
Here are the few of the bads-
1. If you are out on a street and look at the map which I have to do a lot, within 30mins the phone will be dead from full battery life. And in stand by mode even I dont us the phone I will have to charge it twice everyday to keep it on. Most often it turns itself off and people can't reach me.
2. The browser is clumsy, it doesn't render pages right and the touch operation is awful. To fill in the text field of a form it does all funny things.. it will tey to zoom in to that specific field and will not zoom back, if you try to move around with touching the finger it will take you in a blank space of the browser, it will not do automatic screen rotation even after shaking the device for 2-3 times, if you think you had enough it will not close after tapping the home button many times!
3. Doesn't remember the settings of face book. email, alarm or weather... and as it turns of frequently, I have to keep doing it several times a day... and its a new phone 1 month old.
4. The video recording looks impressive but don;t expect to understand what its saying.
I can go on an on.. but anyone planning to buy this.. think again.. especially if you held an iphone before.
