HTC Desire HD menu

In the menu, all programs and options are grouped together. When a new program is installed, it automatically appears in the main menu. By simply holding down an icon, you can place it on a start screen so that you can quickly go to your favorite programs. The HTC Desire HD’s menu is very clear and easy. Due to the special HTC Sense interface, everything is nicely displayed and there are a lot of little extras built-in.

Internet and Email on the phone

Of course for the HTC Desire HD it also suffices to fill out your Google-account information in order to fill the phone with all your personal information such as contacts, agenda items and e-mail messages. Additionally, all other providers, and an Exchange Account can be entered. Often the e-mail address and password is enough to load the data. The Desire HD’s Internet browser, combined with the enormous screen, make the cell phone internet experience surprisingly pleasant. I cannot think of a site that the browser could not handle. Everything is loaded quickly, granted when the network coverage is sufficient. In the beginning you can also choose to work solely with Wi-Fi if no data-subscription has been acquired.

8 Megapixel digital camera

The HTC Desire HD has an 8.0 megapixel digital camera. You can always capture moments on the go and easily share them with all your friends. Starting up the camera application can be done with the camera option in the menu and if it is used often, a quick link can be placed on a start screen. The camera application starts up fairly quickly so that you can start shooting almost right away. Of course the large, clear screen is outstandingly suitable for shooting photos.

HTC Desire HD photo settings

As soon as the application is started up, there are a few icons visible on the side to adjust settings quickly and take a photo, but almost the whole screen is used as a viewfinder. There are diverse settings and there is a self-portrait function which only shoots a photo when it recognizes a face. The double LED-flash ensures that you can even take photos when there is not much light. The flash works especially well. The photos are very neat; large as well as small compositions give good results. Next to photography, you can also shoot video with the HTC Desire HD, in HD-quality, with a resolution of 720p.
