Well, the hardware is nice, the software however is terrible.Like the title, i was wondering if i should switch form iphone 3gs to an htc hd2?
Any thoughts why i should and why i shouldn't? Thanks
Why can't he just return it?Well, the hardware is nice, the software however is terrible.
The only thing I can tell you is that my brother was in the market for a new phone, and I recommended him to get a 3GS, but he went with the HD2 because the hardware is better. After about a day he said he very much regretted it, because the software is just so unintuitive (compared to an iPhone) and there's barely any apps for it, and the apps that are out for it are a lot more expensive and not as good.
He's had it for about 3 weeks now and he says he still regrets it and he might sell it and get an unlocked iPhone.
Just my 2 cents.
Actually correct me if I'm wrong, but that phone will and can be updated to windows phone 7 when it comes out. Even if the software is terrible, it'll be good in the long run.I think I can help you on this one, as I did the switch in January..here's what i thought...
The big screen to look at is stunning. It's sharp, bright and easy to read. However, in practice, I felt the handset to be too big, and was difficult to use with one hand, especially when walking.
The software is TERRIBLE. If Android were to be ported to the device it would be a big improvement, but the current OS is buggy, slow, freezes regularly and so on.
I am now back using my 3Gs. You really appreciate how good the iPhone is after using other phones!
http://www.redmondpie.com/windows-phone-7-series-rom-on-htc-hd2-9140574/And, there is NO UPGRADE to Windows 7 Mobile... that's official if you read what Microsoft and HTC said in the last few weeks (All down to 'too many buttons' and something silly!). Maybe a XDA Developer hack later might solve this but that's a BIG IF.
Maybe... as confirmed at Engadget too but some folks are saying it was running under Remote Desktop connection (News Update 3). Would be great for many HTC HD2 owners if it was apparently true...
