    Still a user. Will have to write new apps though as nobody makes them anymore. Lack of libraries and APIs is the problem. The remaining phones would be at the end of lifetime due to flash wear. Interestingly,used PocketPC devices are still in the market.

    I had this Phone absolutely loved it

  3. Some dude says:

    THEY NEED TO MAKE AN UPDATED CLONE , no selfie camera , removable battery 5k mAh , 3.5mm headphone jack , ability to install MULTIPLE ROMS

    This phone was the truth .

    Ah I remember the good old days when I had this. I had MAGLDR that allowed me to boot either Windows or Android. HTC had made great phones back then. HTC lost its way after HTC one m7 IMO.

    I remember using this, then ran Android in some mobile cab file, then ran Android Natively on it, THEN Windows Phone 7 came out on it

    If HTC makes a 10th year anniversary edition, I'm buying it.

  10. Arnodude53 says:

    Btw, check how thin those screen bezels were for a nearly 10 year old device… Truly a phone way ahead of it's time. I loved this phone and it still remains one of my most favorite phones that i've ever had

  13. Mouki89 says:

  14. céspedes Victor says:

    HTC HD 2..Still alive…iconic…sound is better than more of mid range cell phones.

  15. Honza Miksa says:

    How work social media clients like Facebook or Twitter?

  16. Creative Concepts says:

    Windows 6.5 was best and then they runied it so hard that its impossible to recover windows mobile now

  17. Pendeta Silam says:

    still better than the chinese rip off android phones

  18. Trie Dente says:

    In 2018 it's still worth it perhaps

  19. absb2k says:

    This was the worst phone I ever owned. I wasn't aware of iPhones back then and bought this phone on contract. The phone would often lag and crash so I had to restart the phone at least 3 times a day. Even during phone calls the phone would crash -_- After following guides and changing the OS to android still it would often crash. Wish never wasted money on this piece of junk

    I have an htc evo 3d. Its getting old! From 2011.
