Entertainment features

T-Mobile is really playing up the multimedia capabilities of the device, and to sweeten the deal, it preloads the smartphone with a ton of entertainment apps, including Blockbuster's On Demand video download application, Barnes & Noble's e-book reader, and both "Transformers" movies.

Display and size

The HD2 features an extra-large 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen that's absolutely gorgeous. However, the trade-off is that the device is a bit on the larger side at 4.74 inches tall by 2.64 inches wide and 5.54 ounces.

Keyboard

In addition to a traditional onscreen QWERTY keyboard, the HD2 also has a Swype keyboard, which lets you input text by dragging your finger from letter to letter in one continuous motion.

The camera took excellent photos with amazing sharpness, but the colors on indoor shots could have been slightly brighter.
