I just ordered the HD HD7 Win7 Smart Phone from O2 this afternoon. Should be here
on Tuesday or Wednesday. Just wondering if anyone here has this, and if they could let me
know their opinion on the phone, etc.

Cheers, Tam...

Actually, I didn't ask for RESOLUTION specs on my thread you LOON! I asked about
peoples comments on the phone (if they have it) and their opinions...

I've actually played around with some windows phone 7 on the AT&T store. I absolutely loved the overall smoothness on the phone, it beats out the iPhone imo and probably the androids. Ok now you may or may not like the whole GUI, if you have a Zune HD then from what I've read its the same. From my experience I would prefer something else honestly, I found it sometimes irritating to scroll back and forward through these lack luster test pages and sometimes there's no indication on what you can and can't do, which brings me to my next point... This phone is supposed to be very customizable but from what I've read not all of the features are there yet. There's still a lot of work needed in that area, though you can change the usual, colors, backgrounds, photos etc. I'm also not entirely sure how is the hack community with this phone, being a Windows phone I have no doubt its already hacked but what kind of hacks I do not know.

As Plug said it would have been better for you to read comments on the phone or try it before you buy it specially since the HD7 are (according to endgadget) the crappier verison of WP7. Fortunately according to them Europe has the best Windows Phone 7 available, like the Omnia 7 and the Optimus 7. Read this review and decide for yourself, though I recommend you search other reviews:
http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/08/windows-phone-7-in-review-t...-surround/

Something you should definitely find out is if you can change your email client, since the WP7 uses Hotmail for email, I tried to find my way through some sort of setting to change to yahoo but I couldn't find any so make sure you can use your client. Also, the browsing experience was very good imo, it was pretty smooth and pretty fast overall, though I do not know if I was connected through 3g or Wi-fi.

Now this Phone supposedly has interaction with Xbox and Windows Live and you can play some Xboxarcade games on it, I don't know if the feature is yet available but I remember Microsoft promoting it, though they have sure failed a lot in delivering this promising features in the past. For example:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/windows-cpu-gpu,6645.html

The game I played on the Phone looked awesome. I was like a space soldier with cool gear and all thats**t and I was dropped into a planet cause my spaceship crashed and I was injured and all that. You moved the little dude by tapping a point in the screen and then he'll follow and you shoot enemies by tapping them once then he'll prone into a firing position and you can throw grenades and heal yourself with packs and all that. Thought it was pretty cool.


I recommend you try the phone to its max for no less than 3 days and see if you like it, if not return its ass and get one of the better versions or an Android phone.

I'm defffo planning to get a WP7 or an android phone when my contract expires.

Up until today, I'd the NokiaN95 8GB. Had this since 2008. Was overdue for a new phone.

Got my HTC HD7 this afternoon. What a huge phone!!! What am elegant looking phone.
Absolutely lovely to use. So glad I got this. Just been busy setting up, etc. Flicking through
options, etc. Haven't really had in depth look as yet,as not had enough time - but will defo
be spending a good while tonight with it. The resolution is nice, and the colours. I don't know
what some folks were on about, cos it's flawless but I guess the users I read up online have
probably owned an iPhone prior to owning this one. Will update later with what I find...

Well, I don't have any experience of the phone itself, but it was something I looked at when researching my current device, so I'm aware of it.

The main complaint most people seemed to have with the HD7 was that it's quite heavy, and at 162g, it's certainly heavier than the 137g iPhone 4 (but then it's bigger on every axis and has a significantly larger screen), but my old HTC P6500 was 220g and I used that quite happily for two years.

It's got a comprable processor to the iPhone, and slightly more RAM, however, some people are reporting it's not as responsive due to the high resource usage of the Windows OS (but that could just be the Apple zealots having a pop), and this combined with the lower resolution screen (which, because it's so much bigger than the iPhone's just doesn't look as sharp) has lead people to label it a cheaper device, but then, it IS cheaper ;)

It's got a 5MP camera (just like the iPhone) and shoots 720p video (just like the iPhone),
but additionally, it runs Java, has a radio, and the general consensus is that it looks cooler. The more techie forums I visited labelled the HD7 a smart buy, because it's cheaper than most of its competitors and has more of the features techie-minded people look for in a phone. The realistic alternatives were basically other HTC phones running Android.

I actually like the weight and feel of it. But yea, it's a huge phone! I had to install ZUNE
to sync with the PC, and to upload my music, etc. In a wee summary:

. The sound's quite tinnie, and not loud (external and only one speaker) BUT i won't be
playing music from it externally. I'd be using the headphones lol.

. The resolution's actually very very good. I don't see much difference compared to
the iPhone tbh.

. I'm struggling with trying to find a way to import/transfer my contacts from the Nokia :(

. I think the phone's very responsive - but yes, you probably are right about the iPhone
zealots nit-picking!! This is my very first Smart Phone, so I can't really say much.

. I'm still trying to suss out what's what and still finding new stuff, etc so will take me
a wee while to figure out what's what. Again, I'm new to these phones.

. I haven't yet seen any lag, but that's because the phone's at factory setting just now.
Will update as soon as I notice anything. Can't be as bad as the old phones like
NokiaN98 LOL.

. No Adobe Flash as yet :( (Adobe are currently working on an app for this platform) a
bit disappointed, since this is a Win Phone, and I'd hoped this'd been done aaages ago!

. Disappointed in the Camera. Lots of ghosting. Maybe i need to adjust settings? I don't
know... But I'm not bothered, I already have an HD Cam Corder.

That's about it for now. But I am absolutely happy with this phone. Will update with
any other things i find in the future...

Meats
I'm using this phone to get back to u briefly about wot u mentioned. I do have Xbox live and it connected once I entered my hotmail account =) also, I've already added my bt & Gmail accounts also. You can put in any pop account no problem also but all web accounts you just basically log in then that's your account already added.
