Pros Huge Screen with great quality. Best PDA. Only touch screen phone that I have seen where I can actually type on without correcting every other letter. Built in FM Radio. Fast Processor. Built in GPS. Camera with flash. Amazing flashlight.
Cons Pretty bad call quality on my phone. This may have been just my phone because no one else has complained. To much static. Very touch sensitive. Would randomly hang up on my calls and call someone else. Sometimes locked up and takes forever to reboot
Summary Come on tmobile, HTC and Microsoft you are on to something finally. Fix the bugs. This Phone has the potential to blow IPhone and android phones out of the game. But I don't want to pay 500 dollars on a phone that randomly calls people and has a lot of static. Maybe in a few months I will try again. Had to take this one back. Yes the iPhone has a lot more apps. so does android. But this phone has way more potential. I have had the mda for years waiting for a decent phone. The touch Pro 2 almost had me because I like real key boards. But it fell a little short of what I was looking for. Got my daughter a new ipod touch. has fun apps and games. Just not for me. too hard to type on and to proprietary. If you try to use more than one computer to get music or movies from, your out of luck. No flash on camera. Just a toy compared to the potential of this phone. As far as the apps go, i do have to give props to apple for that. But with some apps coming out now, you will be able to run android apps on hd2 soon. Already available for touch pro 2. So you can have Microsoft office, a real pda that's not proprietary, add memory and battery without buying a new phone. And have Microsoft and android apps on one phone. Just fix the software and static noise on calls.A lot of replies to my review. I just read recently. I'm still with the MDA. Been keeping up with tmobile updates through reviews. Hasn't changed a lot of reviewers mind yet. Look what Sprint did with the EVO. Great phone. Something with software or what tmoile has done with it. Look at the unlocked HD2 reviews. Still some problems with software, but not near as many complaints. Sprint was smart to put android on it. My sister in law has a EVO. She loves it. Looks like the only thing I can hope for is windows 7 update for this one. The samsung vibrant is a nice option. Its screen is amazing but the shell looks cheap and no flash. Saw a demo with cracked shell at tmobile store. A lot lighter than this phone though. Waiting for the android update to come out and see what sprint does with their version of samsung phone. Its supposed to have a keyboard and a flash. Tmobile is slipping a little. I have been with them for 7 or 8 years now. We will see if they step up.

Pros the touch screen and that is it!
Cons i bought the phone in march and its only the middle of may and i'm on my 3RD!!! replacement! the phone freezes up,unable to access the web,must do a master reset at least once a day,even after doing a end all task a million times
Summary I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DONT BUY THIS PHONE ITS A P.O.S. the worst phone i have ever bought from t-mobile thank goodness im a loyal customer and that are sending me the blackberry 9700 for free and dropping all chagers for the HD2 pos
Pros Large screen, good for web surfing
Cons Not user friendly, bluetooth disconnects always, touch screen too sensitive, Windows sucks...it freezes up the whole phone.
Summary For it's price and screen size, you should expect that this phone should deliver all the technological advances but it failed all my expectations of an expensive smartphone.
Pros Large screen, HTC sense that works, customizable.
Cons T-Mobile 3G although signal is there will sometimes goto edge.
Summary This phone gets picked on for being big. But its not bigger than an Iphone, but it has a LARGER screen and build in flash for the camera, higher resolution for the camera.Don't think of it as a "windows phone" That leaves a bad taste in peoples mouth. It's as stable as any android or iphone. And its hardware is better than an iphone. 800x480 resolution,1Ghz CPU, 5MP AF camera with 2xLED light. Same features too, like a compass,Accelerometer, GPS(which is better than the iphone,from what I hear). HTC is a better front end than that on the apple. Oh wait, there is no front end on an apple. You just look at a bunch of icons.

Pros Fantastic phone very fast super responsive and best of all....looks nothing like windows mobile!!!
Cons None yet, and thats a first for me.
Summary Little history, started with AT&T htc 8525 to verizon voyager to blackberry storm to blackberry tour. Jumped to Motorola Droid, then hated verizon so tried t-mobile with the motorola cliq xt. i traded during my 14 day trial to the HTC HD2, and wow. Ithas a sense UI that can act like android while it boasts a music player like the iphone. By far one of the best phones I have ever laid my hands on. If you are looking to upgrade go for it, super fast no lag operation loaded with everything under the sun including movies and blockbuster on demand. its fantastic. does have turn by turn navigation and server software to even help find and maintain gps satelites faster. not to mention one of the largest clearest displays around, making every task from work to fun easier and enjoyable. and with rumors showing that it will be available to upgrade to the windows 7 system OS for free in Q4 of 2010....whats your excuse now!!!
