The Nexus One's 3.7-inch AMOLED screen looks rather small and pale compared with the HD2's display.

Spacious keyboard

The large display allows for a spacious onscreen keyboard, both in landscape and portrait mode.

Large and in charge

The trade-off of having such a large display is a bulky design. At 4.74 inches tall by 2.64 inches wide and 5.54 ounces, the smartphone is quite a beast and isn't the most pocketable device. The large size will probably be a turn-off to some.

Thin profile

We have to say though, with its massive 4.3-inch touch screen and all of its feature, the HD2 is remarkably thin at just 0.43 inches.

Picture quality

Overall, we were very pleased with the camera's performance. Objects were clearly defined in photos and even in dimly lit environments, the colors were still bright.
