The HTC Desire is truly one of the most iconic phones the world has ever seen. Back in October of 2010, the Android-based handset won the best phone of the year award from the prestigious T3 Awards. It has truly made waves in the mobile phone community. With all the achievements the handset has made, did you ever think that it could get any better? Well, it certainly has with its upgraded version the HTC Desire HD.
The Desire came with a 3.7 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Its HD version now comes with a 4.3 inch display with the same resolution capabilities. The difference is the HD offers its users the luxury of enjoying high-definition videos.
Another upgrade that can be enjoyed on the HD is its internet capabilities. Its predecessor offered download speeds of 7.2 mbps and upload speeds of 2 mbps. The HD doubles its internet capabilities. The phone will make you enjoy download speeds of 14.4 mbps and upload speeds of 5.6 mbps. Web page loading, streaming, downloads, and uploads will be much faster.
The camera on the HD far surpasses the camera on its previous version. Its predecessor came with a 5 MP camera along with a number of image enhancing features. The HTC Desire HD comes with an 8 MP digital camera and other image enhancing features. It is now capable of recording high-definition videos.
The Desire came with an Android 2.1 Ãclair OS coupled with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor. Its successor comes with an Android 2.2 Froyo OS and the same processor. So what is the difference? The Froyo is 5 times faster than its 2.1 version. This means faster internet, apps, and better energy efficiency.
With the HD’s browser, you get full flash integration. This is another innovation that can be enjoyed with the Froyo OS. Text rendering will be smoother.
