HTC Touch HD

In consumer electronics, HD stands for “High definition” – high resolution screens, ideally also have extra large failed to increase the enjoyment. This nomenclature, HTC takes bonds and presents a PDA phone with a rich display diagonal by 9.8 centimeters and the high for this size resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.

These good 6.1 visible both the HTC’s own “TouchFlo” interface and the menus and icons of Windows Mobile – everything seems slightly rounded and crunchy as used by Windows Mobile devices.

For “Select”, “Hang up”, “Main menu” and “Back”, sensor buttons that respond precisely, and deliver a short vibration feedback see the display.

A real powerhouse

The depth of just 12 mm ensures that this carries on 650 euro expensive power pack too much in your Pocket without a contract. Total plays the touch HD in a size and weight class with the BlackBerry storm or even the iPhone 3 g.

Not only the dimensions you want to qualify the touch HD as big his Guild – also in the facilities it can burn anything. Also the upload-Turbo of HSUPA (up to 2 Mbit/s) is so in addition to GPRS, EDGE and HSDPA (up to 7.2 Mbit / s) on board. Missing as well as Bluetooth, which also fully supports profile like the HTC Touch 3 g Wi-Fi and GPS.

The camera dissolves whopping 5 megapixel, focus automatically, and delivers good image quality. However a photo light is missing, also it responds quite slowly. An extra VGA front camera allows you to make video calls.

Sometimes something ponderous

The 528 MHz processor promises fleet computing power, in practice, the touch HD when scrolling through the “TouchFlo” surface or at the start of programs works but more comfortable as the smaller touch 3 g. One explanation for this may be that because of the larger Displayauf solution even more pixels have to be moved by the memory.

Overall the HD feels sometimes somewhat underpowered. From 512 megabytes of Flash memory, 196 MB remain free to the user. Here, too, the memory can be upgraded with a micro SDHC card with up to an additional 16 GB, and also in the touch HD, the memory cards used by the editors of test ran without complaint.

The touch HD from work brings the advantages of its platform as the mobile versions of Word and Excel to bear, PowerPoint and PDF files can at least take a look at. And the touch HD plays his large display as a trump card in photo and video playback.

Unsatisfactory battery life

But so much equipment has its price, and points to the measuring laboratory: talk time of 4.5 hours in the GSM and approximately three hours in UMTS mode are nor a feather as the calculated typical endurance of some over seven hours.

Who intensively uses the touch HD, should stay close to an electrical outlet or thinking about purchasing a second battery. It can be used after all, with just a few hand movements.
