"The benefits of this unibody construction are that the outside shell also serves a structural role in making the device more rigid and durable, and thereby reduces the necessary bulk to make a phone that can be relied on over the long term." - Endgadget about the unibody cinstruction of the HTC Desire HD

" it [the 1GHz processor] made using the Desire HD a legitimate pleasure and generated one of our smoothest Android experiences to date." 
"It comes supported by 768MB of RAM, which is as cutting as your smartphone edge can get at this moment in time."
"The Desire HD comes with a 1230mAh battery, which falls short of most current smartphones' standard equipment, and is especially low if you consider HTC managed to fit the EVO 4G with a 1500mAh unit."
"it [battery] lasted "a whole day," but our use was minimal and the wireless radios were throttled by the phone being in airplane mode for half the time. Take that for what it is, it shows that you can squeeze a day's worth of frugal usage out of the Desire HD, but only if you're careful and plan it ahead of time. "
"the Desire HD was power-hungry, and we never felt perfectly comfortable doing anything intensive with it while"
"The Desire HD has a decent, but not altogether impressive LCD panel, which we're almost certain is identical to that found inside the HD7. "
"The browser stood out to us in particular, as it loaded content-heavy pages in a very snappy manner and responded to our touch in a pleasingly alert fashion."
"It's undeniably hampered by some design flaws and poor battery life, but the sheer volume of good things it brings to the table can't be ignored"
I skipped the camera, the new HTC Sense, and some other parts of the review. So click on the source link below to read Endgadget's full review of the HTC Desire HD.
