Canadian carriers Rogers and Fido are now offering HD Voice. In simple terms it means better call quality, as the name suggests. In an email to Mobile Syrup Rogers explained,

“Rogers Network is capable of supporting HD Voice for devices that are HD voice compliant. Customers with handsets that support HD voice will experience clearer call quality and enhanced suppression of background noise. This feature is only available between two 3G/4G handsets on our network that are both HD voice compliant.”

The full list of HD Voice compliant devices is as follows:

  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus
  • Apple iPhone 5
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
  • Nokia X7-00
  • HTC EVO 3D (PG86310)
  • HTC Raider (PH39150)

Korea’s SK Telecom was the first carrier to launch HD Voice, but it has already, or is set to roll out on various other carriers around the world in the coming months. Bell, Telus and Virgin are all offering HD Voice to the Canadian market already.

      Haha…I knew it was a smart decision to buy an HTC One S. Although I asked.myself the same question “and the HTC One X?”

        I think fido doesnt offer the S3 or One X and that’s why those are off the list for now.

  • jimbob

    Galaxy SIII ??

  • ricky

    Don’t forget Wind mobile was the first to offer HD voice over a year ago
