SANS - Survey on application security programs

Call quality from the large loudspeaker above the screen proved to be perfectly fine, delivering well-rounded vocal tones. The battery gave us just under a day and a half of moderate use – not great, but understandable for such a high-feature phone.

HTC HD2

Fully loaded and with a price to match

As with other WinMo handsets, there are a range of options you can take to help eke out the battery life, such as shortening the display time of the screen, dimming the brightness and switching off Wi-Fi and automatic email and Twitter access.

Verdict

The HTC HD2 is a gorgeous multi-media device with lots of points in its favour, not least its impressively huge screen, Sense UI, Windows mobile 6.5 and social networking functions. The camera still isn't up to much, and we'd have liked to see the social networking apps integrated a bit more intuitively into the system. And, of course, we'd have liked the price to be a wee bit lower, but it does almost everything really well, making it a worthy contender for the iPhone. ®
