RATING
Based on 6 reviews

If there’s a Windows Phone 7 device that’s a cut above the rest, then it would be the HTC HD7.

Its 4.3-inch touchscreen gives your thumbs plenty of room to play, and with a 1GHz processor running in tandem with 576MB RAM under the hood, you’re guaranteed speed won’t be an issue.

Its battery, however, could use a little more juice, and even though it sports a 5-megapixel autofocus camera, it isn't exactly the best cam phone available today. It does pretty well under adequate lighting, but for everything else, it has failed to impress the mobile phone community.

16GB of on-board memory, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1, GPS/A-GPS and HSPA connectivity close out the rest of its specs.

The HTC HD7 is certainly not perfect, but it is one of the better Windows Phone 7 offerings out now.

Poor battery performance is the real deal breaker

from Mobile88

Having used the HD7 for about two weeks or so to check my e-mail messages, listen to music and to surf the Web, I found that I liked the way the operating system works.
The all-important phone functions work much better than on Windows Phone 7's predecessors - the calling and SMS screens are easy to get to and even deleting applications and shortcuts are only a tap-and-hold away.
As for the missing cut/copy/paste functions, multitasking and perhaps custom folder organisation for your applications, Microsoft promises a plethora of new features and fixes in an upcoming 2011 update... Full review

It delivers a great performance with its large display

from Ubergizmo
The HTC HD7 is currently the Windows Phone 7’s flagship device and it delivers a great performance with its large display; whether it is emailing, browsing the web, getting directions on Bing maps, reading and editing a document or watching videos, it is highly enjoyable. A few features could have been better: the display and the speaker quality, web browsing was overall slightly slower than expected... Full review

It is an all in all pleasure to use

from PhoneArena

The HTC HD7 is an all in all pleasure to use. Unfortunately however, it isn't as much of a wow device as its Android 4.3" siblings, having been released far later than the EVO 4G, therefore lacking the edge and without the build quality of the HTC Desire HD or the new Sense UI's functional implementation. HTC's overlay upon Windows Phone 7 comes only in the form of HTC Hub, and is pretty underwhelming as it’s not intended to be another Sense UI. Also, while Windows Phone 7 is a promising OS, it could use a hand in the functionality department. Nevertheless, this doesn't take a... Full review

It is absolutely fantastic in many respects, and yet in other areas

from BGR

The fatal flaw in all this is that adding much needed functionality at some point down the road means it will not be a part of consumer’s initial experience with the OS and the devices on which it resides.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

My sincere hope, however, is that people do give Windows Phone 7 a second chance once the functionality is flushed out a bit. Looking back on the first version of the iPhone OS, it was missing tons of features as we can all recall. Over time, however, iOS grew to become the great platform it is today.

It is a very nice device, and it handles Microsoft’s new mobile OS well

from Phone Scoop

The real question is how the HD7 stands up to the Samsung Focus, its closest competitor. The HD7 offers a larger screen and better overall materials, with metal accents and a body that feels rock solid. But the Samsung Focus is a bit smaller, making it more easy to use one-handed, and much lighter, by more than an ounce and a half. I also prefer Samsung’s super AMOLED display to the big LCD on the HD7. The HD7 has better video recording, and my best HD7 pics beat my Samsung Focus samples, but the HD7’s camera is less consistent.

If you’re a T-Mobile fa... Full review

The HD7 is pretty much what you thought it would be

from Engadget

It's that same 4.3-inch blueprint that HTC has exploited to great success with the HD2 and EVO 4G, applied to the brand new Windows Phone 7 operating environment. The first question you'll truly have to answer for yourself is whether or not you want to be aboard the WP7 gravy train. We remain staunch believers that a smartphone is only as good (or as bad) as its software, so decide on your OS first and your particular handset second. If you're still with us, we'd recommend the HD7 as a solid WP7 device choice, but with a few caveats.

The build quality is a step below the... Full review
