if you don't mind a phone that comes without the HTC Sense UI and HTCSense.com, there are phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S, which might be a better choice over the HTC Desire HD. Why so? The HTC Desire HD might be an impressive phone, but there are certain aspects where we weren't too pleased about. The HTC Desire HD comes with an S-LCD screen that pales in comparison to the former's SUPER AMOLED screen. The HTC Desire HD is a hefty and heavy phone that might not be everyone's liking. These aspects also affect its battery life, and thus it's certainly not the best among the other contenders
And now the deal breaker.. The battery… Oh dear oh dear.. I always thought my desire was borderline, but within a couple of hours of use the DHD had gone from full to just 29%. I was gutted! Completely and utterly gutted!!! Fair enough, it was on for most of the time, but apart from 5 minutes with the camera, 10 minutes with co-pilot and about an hour with Google maps in town, it really didn’t get all that much of a workout.
I was looking forward to this phone so much, but if that battery consumption turns out to be right I'm going to have to reconsider my options...
Anxiously await feedback from others as multiple charge cycles have been made....
