Summary: For a $99 smartphone, the HTC Trophy is a good buy. It's $50 less expensive than the Droid Incredible 2, and we like its 5-MP camera, attractive interface, and solid build. You don't get a dual-core processor or multitasking (yet), but those looking for an inexpensive smartphone that's easier to use...
Conclusion: If you've been dying to try a Windows Phone 7 device on Verizon, the HTC Trophy is the first and only (for now!). It's a solid choice though, with HTC's pleasing styling and build quality, good speed and world GSM roaming capabilities.
Pros: Solid first Windows Phone 7 smartphone for Verizon. World phone with GSM roaming. Great gaming and multimedia.
Cons: Usual Windows Phone 7 issues to be addressed in OS 7.5 Mango (no multi-tasking, etc.).
Conclusion: The HTC 7 Trophy is a winner after all. With solid specs, a nice rugged feel as well as solid performance across the board, the HTC 7 trophy delivers a great screen, great connectivity and great performance.
Pros: Well-balanced performance, High-quality construction
Summary: If you're after a phone with a subtle styling and excellent build quality, the Trophy has a lot going for it The Windows Phone 7 operating system is sharp, efficient and fun to use Like all Windows Phone 7 handsets, GPS and Wi-Fi are among the plentiful features.
Pros: Great size and build, clear 3.8-inch display
Cons: A little too much like the other WP7 phones to really stand out
Excerpt: Now so many Windows Phone 7 (WP7) devices have appeared on the market, it's getting harder to distinguish between them all. Of course the Samsung Omnia 7 is recognisable by its super AMOLED screen, while the HTC HD7 is easy to recognise thanks to its huge display.
Pros: : Speedy touch-screen, huge 4.3in HD display, excellent social networking facilities
Cons: : Nothing to make it stand out from the other WP7 devices
Conclusion: It’s not the prettiest, nor is it the most feature-packed Windows Phone 7 handset out there, but what the HTC 7 Trophy offers is a cheap entry point into the new Microsoft eco-system. In the UK, the HTC 7 Trophy is free with a £25-a-month contract.
Pros: Cheap, small, quick, easy to use
Cons: Nothing that breaks out from all the other WP7 handsets on sale
