Conclusion: There's not a great deal of difference between the HTC 7 Mozart and the HTC HD7, and we recommend you check out our review for a more indepth look at the operating system itself. So what does set the HTC 7 Mozart apart from its fellow Windows Phone 7 launchmates? Not much - but we do like the slightly jazzier design that HTC has gone with, as well as the camera's 8-megapixel power.
Excerpt: HTC announced an onslaught of Windows Phone 7 phones. The HTC 7 Mozart is the first of the batch to be released. Currently being sold for Orange UK, the HTC 7 Mozart is a powerful mixture of hardware and snappy software. But does Windows Phone 7 have...
Summary: Being one of the first HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets, the 7 Mozart fills the role of "music handset", which is reflected in its name. Despite this, the Mozart does little to distance itself from its sibling, the Trophy, which appears to be no less equipped for music, yet is touted as the gaming handset of the bunch.
Pros: Fast processor, fresh UI, clean design
Cons: No microSD card slot, fiddly/slow camera, no task manager
Conclusion: Apart from camera, other vital multimedia features of a mobile phone are the music and video player. These media players can play files of diverse formats, and Mozart 7 is no exception. The device features a music player that can play MP3/ AAC+/ WAV /WMA9 player; and a video playback that can stream MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV9 player. On the whole, this WP 7 supportive device by HTC looks to be the best among its previous models.
Pros: 3.7 inches S-LCD touch screen, 8 MP camera with Xenon Flash
Excerpt: HTC smartphones are uniformly well-built, slick and have excellent interfaces. However, they often look similar to each other. The unibody Mozart tries to stand out, but really ought to shout louder.

Summary: The HTC 7 Mozart smartphone may have limited internal memory, but its unibody design and the slick user interface of Microsoft Windows Phone 7 make it an attractive proposition -- even if its display lacks the wow factor of the competing Samsung Omnia 7.
Pros: 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, attractive unibody aluminium design, relatively compact for a phone with a 3.7in screen
Cons: Only 8GB of internal memory (and no card slot), touch-sensitive keys aren't backlit, volume keys poorly positioned
Excerpt: The HTC 7 Mozart is one of three Windows Phone 7 handsets available from HTC in the UK at launch, the others being the HTC 7 HD7, and HTC 7 Trophy. Available exclusively on Orange from 21 October the HTC 7 Mozart is focussed on hi-fi audio, and has Dolby Mobile and sound retrieval system (SRS) surround sound built in.
Summary: The Windows phone has come of age - with Windows Phone 7
Pros: Impressive social media integration; smooth intuitive interface, excellent email facilities, very responsive touch-screen, Xbox Live and Zune sync: cost of apps bought goes straight on to mobile phone bill
Cons: Actually making a call is a rather long process, and the eight-megapixel camera is very average, Bing Maps can't compete with Google Maps - and there's no hope of adding Google Maps either
