HTC Desire HD never again HTC .

post #1 of 91
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Recently bought a HTC Desire HD about a week ago and im impressed by an android phone.

Works really well in most areas but wow HTC really really failed in probably the most simplest area to get right.

Both speakers front and back and shockingly average for a decent phone.

The front speaker volume is shockingly low (Even on max volume , hardly can hear the other person talking unless in a queit room ) and the back speaker sounds tinny and horrible.

-1 FOR HTC !

i got a Desire HD and i aint got no issues with it. could be the rom. try rooting the device and running a custom firmware. go over the xda-developers they are the best team in the world.

if you cant root they teach you how to downgrade and then root

I have no major gripes with the phone besides the speakers.

Id rather not root the phone .

And tbh this is the first phone ived owned that has been shockingly bad in the speaker department.

Even a Nokia $50 pre paid had a better in call volume.

Most likely gonna swap the phone over to an Iphone 4 anyway.

You obviously haven't heard the speakers its annoying the crap out of me.

Did you not read my original post ?

The fact that i can hardly hear people is the main issue for me besides the terrible back speaker.

And the Iphone 4 for me will do the job nicely aswell.

in the UK we have piece of mind guarantee where you can return the phone within 14 days. got anything like that in the US?

Try to do an update. the latest gingerbread rom should be out already for you hand set. that might fix the issue
