HTC has a reputation as one of the most innovative and forward thinking mobile phone manufacturers out there. With releases such as the HTC Desire HD, this is certainly justified. Boasting one of the most impressive specification lists of any smartphone, this great looking touchscreen smartphone offers something for everyone.

The HTC Desire HD measures 123x 68x 11.8mm. It is therefore relatively slimline, and surprisingly light weight at 164 grams. This makes it a pocket friendly handset which is a pleasure to hold and use. Its dimensions are due to the generously proportioned 4.3 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen. This superb screen boasts the ability to display 16 million colours within its pixel resolution of 480x 800. This makes it an ideal handset for displaying photos as well as HD video and gaming.

The standard memory within the HTC Desire HD is 1.5GB; however there is also a pre-installed 8GB memory card within the microSD card slot. This can be replaced with a card of upto 32 GB, which is certain to prove ample for the needs of the vast majority of users. Numerous music files, videos, photos or any other files can be stored within the phone, all of which can be enjoyed thanks to the phone’s comprehensive multimedia compatibility.

If you are into digital photography, you’ll love the HTC Desire HD. With an 8 megapixel digital camera you can take high quality still images on the go, as well as shoot HD video footage in 720p. The camera has a dual-LED flash, autofocus and face detection to simplify the task of taking photos. Another feature is geo-tagging, which functions thanks to the phone’s built in GPS.

When browsing the web, users can enjoy a fast 3G connection of up to 14.4 Mbps, or when accessible, can take advantage of local wireless networks thanks to Wi-Fi compatibility. Adobe Flash support means users can enjoy multimedia web content such as videos and games, a feature all too uncommon on smartphones. When zooming in to read text on a web page, users can simply pinch the screen to zoom and the text will automatically reposition and resize itself. This handy feature means users do not need to scroll across the screen to finish reading a sentence.

Android 2.2 Froyo is the OS of choice, and this works in conjunction with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Together, these provide a customisable, fast and powerful user experience. Access to the Android Market allows users to browse and download apps from many different categories. Social networking integration is provided with features such as YouTube, Google Talk and Picasa integration along with Facebook and Twitter applications.

The HTC Desire is also a powerful multimedia device, with features such as a versatile internal media player which supports many different video and music file formats. There is also a selection of pre-installed games and a stereo FM radio player.

The HTC Desire HD ticks all the boxes in terms of functionality, aesthetics, and entertainment features. Whatever you are looking for in a smartphone, the HTC Desire HD is certainly worthy of a closer look.
