    Sure, I don't know.
    It probably is just the UI acceleration, play angry birds on a desire and iphone and theres no difference. Try using Launcher Pro and you'll see how much more fluid your phone will feel especially on the home screen.

    If you'd told me 10 years ago I'd be talking about the benefits of hardware acceleration on mobile phone UIs... well... I'd probably believe you... but it's still mental!

    It would have been a miracle we would have been talking about UIs and various other things that are now second nature.

    Probably getting a DHD in the next few weeks. I'm thinking of buying another battery so that I carry two batteries around to counter-act the poor battery life. Another DHD owners do this ? Sorry if this question is in the wrong place.

    I was considering doing it with my Hero and am now considering it with my HD2.

    Otherwise a plug suffices :P

    I did this and I've never used my second battery. If you root it and get a custom ROM on it you will never have to worry about battery life. Mine's been unplugged for 9 hours now with 1 hour 34 mins of screen on time and I've still got 70% left. That's pretty good IMO.

    Will definitely get a custom ROM on it but will also get a second battery just to be safe and seeing as they are only around a fiver. I see myself using it quite a lot on the way to college/during breaks.

    I would for mine but swapping out batteries is something I wouldn't want to do, simply because those damn plastic covers are hard to remove, i've only done it twice so far. I carry a usb charger in my bad most of the time but i'm never really in a situation where it's too much of a problem.

    Yeah I'm really looking forward to rooting this baby soon. My battery life can vary, like today random apps were eating it up, im not sure if It was because I was messing so much but it went from 50% to 10% in the space of 2 hours. I forced closed the messageCS service and restarted it and so far the drain has been normal so I imagine it just went a big crazy.

    Seems like HTC did have it's act together all along. Evo 3D

    1.2GHz Qualcomm
    3D (glasses-less)
    3D video recording @ 720p
    2D video recording @ 1080p
    qHD 960x540

    The HTC pyramid I reckon will be the Desire HD successor later in the year, I imagine an EVO 3D with no 4G or 3D.

    Took the words from my keyboard. I'd pay extra to avoid 3D. It's a nuisance.

    The Android powered Samsung Beam didn't really pick up consumer momentum.

    Just turn off the 3D mode. I'm very tempted with this phone... Granted it's not Tegra 2 (which I feel will have better game optimisation), but it'll still fly compared to my Hero!

    That looked so awful, just like sprint dual screen phone. I couldn't believe they thought it was viable. IT was massive and the projection was utter non-sense not to mention having to hold you hand steady to use it properly. The thing with 3D is you can always turn it off and there's little else you sacrifice. I guess it would be fun going to your iPhone friends and say 'can your phone do this?'

    Can't you just turn off the 3D like on the the LG Optimus 3D?
