HTC HD2 Smartphone Review

This is one of my first ever review using the HTC HD2 smartphone in 2010 and consists of travel pictures from around Southeast Asia.

I have been using smartphones since the beginning era of the iPhone 1, which was back in June of 2007 when it first launched in America. I had a good buddy of mine send me the first batch when it was launched.

Since then, I have been reviewing smartphones on my travel and lifestyle blog, not as a job but as a passion for sharing my smartphone photography experiences.

HTC HD2 Smartphone Review

I visited Singapore in June 2010 for a special media event launching Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Singapore, so I managed to take some pictures from my room with the HTC HD2 Smartphone.

In the last three months of April, May and June 2010, I visited Shanghai, Vietnam, Penang and Sabah Borneo, bringing along my HTC HD2 to test out the phone and the camera for travelling purposes.

Below are some of the pictures with the HTC Smartphone, which runs on Windows. Please note that there was no photoshop involved and just the original images resized for this article.

The HTC H2 pictures above were taken from April 2010 till June 1st 2010, using the Windows driven operating system or OS.

Smartphones are already widespread worldwide, and I cannot wait for the next-generation smartphone to try out on my future travels. 

Overall, the HTC HD2 has a super large screen of 4.3" inches, making taking photos easy. Applications are simple, and the touch interface is not too bad.

As for the 5-megapixel camera, there are several functions you can use for your pics, and the dual-LED flashlight was terrific. Battery life is similar to other touch phones and changing your sim card was relatively easy on travels.


More information is available from the HTC official website, where the office is based in Singapore. There is no Malaysia office.

You can also see what I have been up to for more smartphone reviews in Malaysia, as I have done reviews for several other brands.

Personally, I have to say that this model would be one of the best camera phones I have used in a very long time without any hassles or problems. And I hope you enjoyed my HTC HD2 smartphone review.
