Conclusion: In the grander scheme of things, we’d pick a couple other WP7 devices over the HTC 7 Pro — namely the Dell Venue Pro or HTC Trophy. However, seeing as how U.S. Cellular customers don’t have those options, we feel confidant the 7 Pro will more than meet your needs. The touchscreen is great. Should you feel the need to get a bit more physical, the fantastic slide-out qwerty keyboard is a joy to use. In Short: The HTC 7 Pro is a solid WP7 device, and one that U.S.
Conclusion: The HTC 7 Pro's keypad is really easy to type on and Windows Phone 7's neat tiles interface works like a charm on the glossy 3.7-inch touchscreen. Little things such as the positioning of the camera button may irritate after a while and the selection of apps available from the Windows Marketplace is (for now) rather limited.
Conclusion: Overall the HTC 7 Pro doesn’t impress us as much as we’d like it to. Windows Phone 7 in general is aesthetically pleasing and offers most of the features and connectivity you’d demand from a modern smartphone, but there is obviously still a fair way to go to capture the speed and excitement of Android or iOS. It did seem stable on the whole, with no crashes encountered during our time with the phone.
Pros: Hardware keyboard with Windows Phone 7, WP7 is nice to use and original, build quality
Cons: WP7 not optimised for landscape use throughout, WP7 still needs some development, camera performance a little lacklustre
