I remember this phone - it was the first 'real' smartphone that I owned that I wasn't borrowing at night from my mother to listen to music while I read books. I had a rather love/hate relationship that ended in my phone literally dieing right in my hands and having to get a replacement. And I had to witness this ordeal. Tragic, I know. It was a big phone with a nice, large screen, a decent camera, and good video/music playback. However, all that ended pretty much there. The battery life was pitiful. In fact, it was downright pathetic. On all terms of the scale, it was an utter, epic **FAIL**. Just flipping through various pages on the internet would make my poor little battery go from 100% to 20% in literally less than a half-hour. Don't even ask about playing games or watching YouTube... Apps never properly worked on this thing, and I had to constantly reboot this phone because it would stall and the wifi connection would go haywire. I tried downloading Spotify for Android and the app never worked properly - it never even played any of my songs, just skipped through them without a peep. This phone was also notoriously slow and took a long time to start up, a long time to open this and to open that, to close this and to close that. Then, it died. It was such a complete shock to me when I went to charge up my phone when quiet morning, plugged it in, and when I squeezed the start-up button, the screen flashed and then fizzled. I repeated the same sequence and my phone, thereafter, refused to come on. The little charge indication light in the upper right hand corner was not showing. I never knew what exactly happened - I never dropped the phone and took great care of it, and even with a battery change, it still refused to come on. My new HTC One is so much better. So, so much better. In short, you must be a very patient person to enjoy the HTC HD2 because this thing will work on your nerves.
