The recently released HTC Desire HD has proven to be a massive hit and received many rave reviews. Long awaited by established fans of the brand, this is a handset which is also sure to win over many new phones for the increasingly popular Smartphone manufacturer. This is thanks to a number of impressive key features which range from a high quality 4.3 inch touchscreen to an impressive 8 mega pixel digital camera which features the ability to shoot HD video footage.

The Desire HD a relatively large handset due to the size of its touch screen, however it remains slim at 11.8 mm and surprisingly lightweight at just 164 g. The screen dominates the front of the handset, and features S-LCD capacitive touchscreen technology. The pixel resolution of 480x 800 is utilised to display up to 16 million colours. All of these features mean that the display quality of images and video, as well as the HTC Sense UI in general, is of stunningly high quality. Additional features of the screen include multi-touch input, touch sensitive control panel as well as proximity and accelerometer sensors. The latter automatically rotates the on screen imagery based upon the orientation of the phone, meaning it can be viewed in both portrait and landscape forms.

A useful 1.5 GB of internal memory is supplied as standard, however users have the option to utilise the integrated micro SD card slot by installing a memory card of up to 32 GB. This means that users will have plenty of storage at their disposal which is easily capable of storing the average digital music collection as well as loads of other files.

GPRS & EDGE are both utilised in class 32 versions to provide the HTC Desire HD its connections to the relevant cellular networks. In areas covered by 3G, an impressively fast Internet experience is provided courtesy of an HSDPA connection which can provide download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. An equally impressive connection can also be established whenever users have access to local wireless networks, thanks to full Wi-Fi connectivity. Bluetooth and micro USB connections complete the list of connectivity features.

The HTC Desire HD is equipped with an outstanding 8 mega pixel digital camera, which shoots stunning still images as well as HD video footage. Still images are easily enhanced thanks to features such as Autofocus, face detection and a dual-LED flash. Geo-tagging is also included which, thanks to GPS, automatically tags the location at which a photo was taken.

The winning combination of the Android OS, in this case the brand new v2.2 Froyo, and a powerful 1 GHz Qualcomm processor gives the HTC Desire HD an ideal platform for customisation and expansion. Access to the Android Market provides practically unlimited options for users to download apps, meaning that in terms of customisation and versatility the sky’s the limit.

With several features which put rival smartphones to shame, the success and popularity of the HTC Desire HD looks set to grow.
