FLIMSY plastic SIM cover break in half
- SOLVED by removing the sim cover properly with care. (apply pressure in the middle not along the sides) The manual also suggest this.

Loose Camera Lens/Bezel
- FIXED?? Faulty first batch??
(not everyone have this issue, you probably should get a replacement)
more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=813276

Reduced or loss of GSM/3G/WiFi signal when your hand covers the SIM/MicroSD and/or battery cap
- Not really an issue this is due to the antenna being on the plastic covers
(not a big problem if you hold the phone normally on the aluminium body)
Or have a phone cover on (solution like the Iphone4)

Misalignment of Camera Lens
- not an issue
the camera worked fine, no one report shadows from the misalignment. (the outer lens cover is just for protection)

The exaggerated, sluggish auto-brightness when recording video is an issue. Watch any of the sample videos on YouTube.

HTCsense.com issues not fixed
In Denmark, there are still problems with HTCsense.com - I mess with it to check stability and MANY times I can not connect to my phone to call it, and the SMS service takes a LONG time to react. Also, I have not yet succeeded in remotely locking the phone.

Internal noisereduction is too strong and it makes all photos look like they are waterpaintings, it should be a quick and easy fix for HTC to take care of.

Image sharpening is too strong set at default zero setting, you have to tune it down to get acceptable shots with less sharpening artifacts in them.

Display powerconsumption is ridicously high, it's somthing HTC have to tune in software if possible.

Possibly too strong antialiasing filter contributing to render soft photos.

HTC Sense is still not working for me...the dashboard doesn't identify my phone's location, the phone does not ring, nor can it be locked or erased. Push messages from the Hub is also not working (HTC Hub via the phone allows me to browse and operate but continues to report that the server is down). The phone number I'm using and related passwords are all correct.

(I'm in Australia).

I have one to add to the list:

Reduced or loss of GSM/3G/WiFi signal when your hand covers the SIM/MicroSD and/or battery cap.


P.S.
Let's make this list as complete as possible, so we can all point these issues to the HTC customer service.

After I have extensively reading through almost all the posts in this forum (waiting patiently for my DHD from Handtec). These are the issues that I think came up so far:

Snip, snip

I want this topic to be a compilation of issues that are common to the DHD. Please do not post asking about little issues that you might have or new issue you stumble upon.

Hopefully, this thread will be pinned so that everyone can see it.

I have to thank you for having the courage to do this thread, honestly im tired of the spam fest of doubled threads in this forum just because people dont use the damned search button, every damned time i come here theres 20 more threads with questions that people answered...

I suggest this for sticky!
