The HTC Desire HD is one of two recently released Desire models, alongside the Desire Z. The original HTC Desire was one of the most successful Android smartphones of all time, so what makes the new HD version so good?

For starters, the HTC Desire HD boasts a built in digital camera with a whopping 8 megapixels, and the quality of the resulting still images is every bit as impressive as you may expect. The camera also has the ability to shoot HD video footage, as you may expect from the phone’s name. A dual-LED flash is provided to ensure that low lighting conditions do not prevent you from taking that perfect photo. Your pictures and videos are then displayed on the stunning 4.3 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen. With up to 16 million individual colours displayed within the pixel setup of 480x 800, the display quality has to be seen to be believed. The screen also comes with an accelerometer sensor for auto rotate of the HTC Sense UI, and multi-touch input is also supported allowing features such as pinch-to-zoom to be carried out.

The standard internal storage capacity of the HTC Desire HD is 1.5GB; however an 8GB memory card is included within the microSD card slot. This is generous in itself; however the latter can be replaced with a card of up to 32GB, meaning the HTC Desire HD is the perfect choice for those who like to keep their music tracks, video clips and photos on their phone, along with any additional apps that are downloaded from the Android Market.

Android Market is similar to the Apple AppStore, in as much as users can browse thousands of apps from many different categories, resulting in countless options when it comes to customisation and expansion.

The HTC Desire HD is also a fantastic web browser; HSDPA provides download speeds of a whopping 14.4 Mbps in areas where 3G coverage is available. Additionally, users can take advantage of local wireless internet routers when they have appropriate access, thanks to full Wi-Fi connectivity, providing an even faster and more reliable connection. In order to stay connected to the appropriate cellular networks, both GPRS and EDGE are provided and users can also connect to compatible hardware devices thanks to both Bluetooth and micro USB.

The HTC Desire HD offers the ultimate in versatility thanks to its innovative HTC Sense UI. Up to 7 homescreens can assigned and customise with various widgets and apps, and there are loads of entertainment and productivity features provided as standard. As the HTC Desire HD utilises the Android OS, the full package of Google features is included as is a multitude of social networking features such as individual apps for sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as FriendStream. The latter pulls feeds from various social networking sites onto one interface.

The HTC Desire HD is surely one of the most technologically advanced and indeed versatile smartphones on the market. The legendary HTC build quality of the handset further adds to its appeal. Whatever you are looking for in a smartphone, you should consider the HTC Desire HD as it beats the vast majority of its competition hands-down in terms of technology and specifications, not to mention its user experience.
