That you did, you still didn't give it a fair chance though, you didn't even attempt to fix it, which is rather simple and allows you to do many many other things with the inner workings of android as well. Now you could go on a rant about how it should work properly out of the box, well nothing is ever perfect and the dev community has fixed it for you. It is far from a reason to switch to an iphone, which undoubtedly would be more expensive.

Now I'm happy that you got an iphone and all(unlike the majority of OCN aka apple haters), but the reasons for switching I frankly don't agree with, it was a simple fix away.

Almost all smartphones have similar battery life, its something we have to deal with since there is so much horsepower in them now(think ultraportable laptop ~6 years ago power).

Now, I'm over arguing, enjoy your new phone!

Eh, reposition the phone on your ear. The speaker is just fine on those phones. And the speaker for music isn't all that great, but then again it's not a damn walkman phone. If you wanted a phone that's great for music, get a walkman phone. Good for taking pictures? Camera phone. All round great android device with a good GPU? Yeah, you've got one. But it's not a dedicated music phone. Use headphones, the HTC music player even has an EQ for use with headphones.

See your missing the point here.

The biggest problem and ive said this many times was the in call volume which yes could be fixed by using a ROM but i chose not to go down this road.

Im not after a awsome music phone i just want the front and back speaker to not be absolutely horrid.

My friend hasn't rooted and ROM'd his HTC Desire HD and the speaker is fine for volume in calls, so maybe your speaker is faulty? I mean, with my Desire, I find I have to turn down the ear speaker volume to stop people deafening me!

As for the back speaker. Yeah, they're not exactly great, but I've heard much worse.

Yep who knows.

Im just a bit scared about the whole ROM process and rather not do it unless i knew exactly how.

Aww, you're missing out on Android goodness. The beauty of this OS is the ability to customize it inside and out, which is pretty enticing for a lot of people who want to tinker and mod.

I also have a very archaic Motorola Cliq, which had horrid lag issues due to the proprietary Blur UI. Not to mention it was stuck on 1.6 Donut for so, so long. So I took the time to root and install an AOSP ROM into it, voila lag-free Froyo on an age-old device.

Did it ever cross your mind that you got a defective unit? This sometimes happens. Try exchanging the phone for a new one, or bring it in to your local retailer and explain the problem. See what they say.

Yeah, they should be able to accept exchanges over a limited time period. If the problem is replicated in that new phone, then it would be really same across all Desire HD units.
