HTC HD2 with Windows Phone 7 vs. Samsung Focus (Video)

Advertisement

You might have heard by now that HTC HD2 owners can load Windows Phone 7 onto their device in just a few pretty easy steps. But just how good is the performance of an operating system not intended for the HD2? As it turns out, pretty darn good, as you can see in this video. Compared to the Samsung Focus, the HD2 holds its own loading web pages and accessing programs, often faster than the Focus. Granted, unless you’re willing to engage in some trickery, Live services don’t work on the HD2, disallowing you access to third party apps and other Microsoft services.
