Over all HTC Touch HD is a great phone. Lots of good features a business phone should have. Big screen really feels well in hand and its applications are wonderful, lots of applications that you can buy. The touch screen is responsive and the full QWERTY keyboard works perfectly fine, accelerometer sensor, fast processing speed, dedicated graphic chip, TouchFLO 3D finger swipe navigation, 5MP camera all these features makes it a should buy phone. I have compare it to Iphone, iphone is user friendly but this mobile set has lot more features that you may never find in Apple iphone.

Though it’s heavy and big but with all above mentioned features, it really doesn’t matter plus HTC has improved the battery life for this phone, its better than the previous HTC touch diamond set.
