What we say:

The Desire HD is a physically stunning handset. From the high-quality design that manages to pack a stunning amount of tech into a remarkably thin body, to the sumptuous feeling of the all metal chassis, the Desire HD is the big screen Android phone that everyone wished HTC would make. It's an original HTC Desire on steroids; bigger, better, faster, with more of everything that made the Desire so great, all on a huge 4.3 inch screen.

Manufacturer's description

Fun on the web, the way you want it:
HTC Desire HD has a super-fast 1Ghz processor to take you anywhere online in seconds, plus a clever zoom that automatically reflows text and images to fit your screen. Because the internet should work around you. Not vice versa.

See everything on the big screen:
Gone are the days of squinting at tiny screens and missing all-important details. Now, with the HTC Desire HD, you can experience a truly great browsing experience on its large 4.3" screen. With added features like pin-sharp text display, vivid photos and vibrant video, the HTC Desire HD is designed to enhance your favourite websites, YouTube clips and Facebook photos.

Your memories, now in HD:
Some moments you never want to forget. So capture them with HTC Desire HD's high definition video camera. Then relive and share every detail in HD on your TV, long after the memories have faded.

Easy Reading and Browsing:
Zoom in on a webpage and the text changes size and reflows automatically to make it easier to read.

Feed Your Brain:
Ever been curious about something you read? A simple tap and hold lets you search any word or phrase selection in Wikipedia, Google, YouTube or the dictionary.

No More Awkward Moments:
Ever fumbled with your phone because it went off at full-blast during a meeting? Well, don't worry! Now as soon as you lift your phone up to see who's calling, the ringer volume gets lower. Want it silenced completely? Just flip it over.

No More Missed Calls:
When you don't want to miss that special call, your phone knows when and how to get your attention. If it's in your bag, for example, it will know to ring louder.

An Icebreaker for Your Calls:
Now when you look to see who's calling, you get to see their latest social status updates or if they have a birthday coming up. The conversation starts before you say hello!

Maps That Never Let You Down:
Can't get online? No problem. On-device maps are always ready to help you explore your world.

Maps That Never Keep You Waiting:
Experience zero-wait when zipping and zooming around your maps. Now that the maps are loaded right on your phone, you don't have to wait… and wait… and wait...

Maps Good. Maps Plus Compass… Better:
Never scratch your head wondering which way to turn! With Locations – the map integrates with the compass so it always points you in the direction you need to go – instant orientation.

Never Miss a Turn – Because of a Call:
Don't worry about missing the next turn when a call comes in. Your map stays on screen while a call bar gently slides its way into view.

Satisfy Your Urge to Peek Ahead:
Stopped at a red light? Now you can take a virtual helicopter tour of the rest of your trip while you wait for the light to change.

Discover Cool Places – Grab Your Phone and Go:
Use to create Footprints of the top spots you want to see from your computer. Then, just grab your phone and find your way to that cool café or that hidden jazz bar.

Can't Find Your Phone? Relax: gives you peace of mind when your phone is lost or stolen. Make it ring loud when you can't find it - even if it is on silent. You can also check its location on the map, and then lock and wipe its sensitive data if it is gone for good.

Never Lose a Message: holds on to all the messages you've ever sent or received. Go back in time to easily find that special message.

Never get lost again:
Ever get frustrated when maps take too long to download and you miss that vital turn, or when your phone rings and you lose your place? Well here's an idea, downloadable maps that are stored on your phone and load up as soon as you need them. And as you may get a phone call when you're looking at your map, when someone calls you the map screen never goes away.

From the big screen to the bigger screen:
When HTC Desire HD's big screen isn't quite big enough, share photos and videos on a bigger screen. Stream them wirelessly, straight to your DLNA TV with DLNA connection.

The full web with Flash® Player 10.1
Some phones can't play all the video content that is on the web. Well – the HTC Desire HD can. With Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 it plays videos and animations so you can see the web as it was meant to be.

More windows, more browsing
You don't browse one page at a time on your computer so why do it on your phone? Open more websites in more windows and browse more freely.

Magnificent piece of technology. Have had mine for over a year and I am now getting it fixed after a nasty drop. I don't want anything else, just this thing. It is everything one could ever need in a smartphone and more.
