We've been hopping up and down so much with anticipation for the HTC Desire HD that people are wondering if we have to pee. And we may just wet ourselves with excitement now we've had a chance to take the phone for a full test drive, and see that it lives up to all our expectations.
The Desire HD packs in the features, and we love its enormous 4.3-inch screen for surfing the Web, looking at photos, playing games and watching videos in the Flash-enabled browser. We're also willing to accept its porky 164g weight, because it's got an aluminium case that wraps around the edge of the screen and should help to make it tougher than the average phone. But this isn't a phone for people who value portability over power, and you can barely wedge it in a pocket if you tend towards tight trousers.
So we thought it would be useful to whip up a photo gallery so you can see the Desire HD for yourself compared to its top rivals in a Usual Suspects-style round-up. Click the photo above to find out which one is Keyser Soze and which one is Verbal Kint.
Back to back, the Desire HD (top) and the HD7 could almost be the same phone, although the Desire HD has a matte aluminium case compared to the HD7's plastic one. The aluminium case looks smart and feels tougher, but it adds weight.
