htc sense online for my desire hd

my HTC Sense experience

Despite my earlier post about getting HTC Desire HD early next year, I have found out that I was unable to resist the deal when my telco gave me a $300 voucher on Friday which was marketed towards signing up with an iPhone plan.

I headed there and told them that I’m not interested in getting an Apple iPhone and got them to check on the availability of HTC Desire HD. The customer service office in green told me that’s okay and in a whispering tone,”We ran out of iPhones, anyway. Let me check…”

“We’ve got the last one and is booked by someone else”, (more…)


Buying a HTC Desire HD? Maybe next year. December 7, 2010

Consumer electronics products these days are pack with so much features (and perceived benefits) that we rarely get to use all of them. Nevertheless, I think HTC Sense had done a good job in hearing what the consumers and, importantly, addressing them. Now it even goes online with even more features that allows to wipe and remotely locate your lost HTC phone. Review of HTC Desire HD are generally good for the speed, features like it’s cloud computing ability and able to support Flash 10.1. However, the most eyesore for many but not really for me is the awful battery life perhaps due to the 4.3″ glorious screen. For me, I do get a 12DC adapter in my cab, and can always give my smart phone boost of battery as and when I want.

Personally, even if I decide to get one eventually, it would be in early 2011 because it has limited stocks in the market now. In addition, I’m not in favor of getting the initial possible buggy products especially during launch and make frequent trips to service center. Furthermore, by then, more choices of accessories would be available at reasonable prices as I heard of folks who got their brand new HTC Desire HD and/or HTC Desire Z but unable to get the accessories they want.
