Its the EVO 4G for Europe.
The ringer checks volume of surroundings, go’s quieter if picked up and mutes if flipped over.
Made from a single piece of aluminium.
720p recording and 8MP camera with duel flash.
Tabbed browsing on the internet and runs Adobe Flash.
Easy to use.
EBook reader is very handy.

The HTC Desire HD is quite a large phone.
It’s pretty expensive.
It doesn’t have a button just for the camera.
Battery life is a bit short.
16GB or 32GB of internal storage would have been good like the Iphone 4.
