PostSubject: HTC Desire HD in the flesh, first impressions   Fri Nov 19, 2010 2:00 pm

Along with the Desire Z, I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the only other engineering unit of the HTC Desire HD they had and as usual we took photos and captured some videos to share.

The Desire HD has this gloriously huge and nice touch display screen. The Super LCD did not disappoint and I wasnít even able to spot the difference between that and the AMOLED display of the original Desire. Itís still crisp and bright ó not anywhere near the low-res display of the Wildfireís LCD panel.

HTC Desire HD specs:
4.3″ Super TFT display @ 480 x 800 pixels
1GHz Qualcomm 8255 Snapdragon CPU
1.5 GB internal
up to 32GB via microSD
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
WiFi 802.11n
GPS w/ aGPS support
FR Radio tuner
8MP camera with dual LED Flash
720p video recording
Li-Ion 1230mAh battery
Android 2.2. Froyo

For such a large handset, itís also surprisingly thin (although I think it gives it a thinner impression since the body tapers towards the edges). The large 8MP lens at the back conspicuously protrudes and could be a cause for concern (it could scratch the surface you place it on or actually scratch the lens itself). I think itís an issue that can be easily remedied with a nice gel case or something similar. Wasnít able to take test shots since the room was a bit dark.

The touch panel for the controls and menu are etched/printed into the glass panel at the bottom and doesnít give some sort of feedback use pressed. Iím still biased in favor of the physical buttons on the original Desire though.

As you can see on the video below, the handset is pretty smooth, responsive and snappy. At 4.3″, itís practically impossible to type on this unit with one hand.

A YugaTech reader living in Dubai is telling me he got one for around Php25k there. However, a cousin who just passed thru Dubai Airport yesterday tells me the price at a Duty Free store is USD$800. My local source gives me an estimate of Php37,000 but donít worry since we will find out the exact price on November 23′s launching.
