The HTC Desire HD has become widely available in the UK over the past week; praise has been widespread with reviewers impressed with the new handset, however many people are confused with the latest addition to the HTC range as for some it seems like a sideways movement rather than a progression.
To me this is a little difficult to comprehend, especially when you consider the differences in the phones specs. The new phone has a bigger and better screen, uses the brand spanking new version of Android – newer is better, right?
Reviewers have discovered that the HTC Desire HD suffers from the same problems as its predecessor, namely poor battery life, this has resulted in the original HTC Desire remaining more popular than the new model.
According to the latest tech radar chart the original HTC Desire is still the most popular phone with their users with the iPhone 4 in second place and the new Desire HD taking third spot.
It’s still very early days for the Desire HD, it is available across various networks in the UK already with more and more network providers adding the phone to their range in quick succession.
What do you think? Is newer better?
