Top Accessories for the HTC HD7

May 30th, 2011 No comments

First, let’s look at the HD7 itself. Running on Windows Phone 7, the HD7 also has a super fast processor, making it one of the best multimedia devices out. The display is 4.3″, the camera include with the phone is 5 megapixels, and the memory is 16 GB. In addition, the HD7 has loud dual stereo speakers, and a built-in kickstand to let you stand it up on any flat surface, making the device perfect for its role as a media presenter. But, to take the best advantage of these media capabilities, you should look at these HTC HD7 accessories now available.

The HD7 definitely needs a case to protect the surface of the phone.  Finding a case that will accommodate the smart phone can be tough, especially if the smart phone has a very unique design. The two choices for protection are the HTC HD7 holster and a case. A holster is typically a plastic type of case that has a swivel clip on the back that can attach to many items, such as a belt, purse, or even a folder. Though a holster does an excellent job of protecting the phone while it is in the case, it does not protect the phone in use. The best way to protect your device during heavy use is by investing in a case, sometimes called skin cases. A HD7 case has cutouts to allow the use of the kickstand, and the ports. The thin layer of the skin case does not block sound, enabling full use of the speakers.

The large touch screen of the HD7 may well be what sets it apart from other smart phones, but it also makes the phone more vulnerable. Even with just daily use, the screen will start to collect dust, grime, and you will also start leaving fingerprints behind. To keep an HD7′s display looking like it was the day you unboxed it, a screen protector is an excellent idea. Screen protectors are merely durable plastic sheets that cover the display screen, yet still allow the phone to operate as if there were no covering. These sheets of plastic may be replaced as needed at any time.

One feature that will bring many complains to HTC is the battery life; with only a 1230 mAh battery, the HD7 will not be able to maximize its full potential. On the other hand, the HD7 battery is easy to swap out. Buy an extra HTC HD7 battery as a gift to be sure the HD7 owner will never have to worry about running out of power.

The HD7 makes use of the microUSB port not only to charge the device, but also to sync it. An extra charging cable to fit that port is also an excellent gift idea. The HD7 owner, even if they already have such a cable and carry it back and forth all the time, can keep the extra one in the car, or at the office for those charging emergencies.
