Conclusion: We feel that interest in the HTC 7 Trophy will mainly hinge on whether or not you have an Xbox and play online regularly. If not then you might want to check out one of the other HTC Windows Phone 7 phones instead. That said the HTC 7 Trophy is a decent phone. It’s got a big 3.8-inch touchscreen, a solid 5-megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage.
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. Admittedly, the camera could be better and the screen bigger, however, we’d say the HTC 7 Trophy finds a good balance between price and performance.
Pros: Well-balanced performance, High-quality construction
Summary: One of a handful of new Windows Phone 7 devices, the HTC 7 Trophy is probably the WP7 equivalent of the HTC Desire, in that it has a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, and similarly sized WVGA display. It's touted as the gaming handset of HTC's WP7 lineup, with a slightly larger screen than the Mozart, but a lower resolution camera. In reality, the two handsets' specifications are very similar, with the main difference being the pixel count of their cameras.
Pros: Fast processor, fresh UI, nicely sized screen
Cons: No microSD card slot, fiddly/slow camera, no task manager
Summary: The HTC 7 Trophy is a perfectly good choice if you want to take advantage of Microsoft's nifty Windows Phone 7 operating system. It doesn't really stand out among the other handsets running the operating system, though.
Cons: Very similar to other Windows Phone 7 mobiles; not many apps in the app store yet.
Conclusion: HTC Trophy is a competent mobile phone that is probably targeting the young generation. It is evident from the fact that the device includes social media features such as integrated applications of Twitter™ and Facebook™. Moreover, YouTube™ can also be accessed from the handset.

Summary: The HTC 7 Trophy smartphone has limited internal memory and a display that isn't as big or as sharp as competing handsets' screens, but the slick user interface of Windows Phone 7 makes it a good option nonetheless.
Pros: Stylish, thin design, good screen, HD video recording, ease of use
Cons: Only 8GB internal memory, protruding camera lens with no cover, limited camera settings, HTC apps don't add much value
Excerpt: The Trophy sounds as though it ought to be the crowning glory in HTC’s Windows Phone 7 line-up; in fact, it’s overshadowed by the HD7. Like the HD7, it takes a 1GHz processor, but has a smaller 3.8in display with a sharp 480x800-pixel resolution. The build is solid, navigation is nippy and web browsing smooth.
Excerpt: To many the HTC 7 Trophy, made by HTC and exclusively available in the UK on Vodafone, is the runt of the Windows Phone 7 litter. But is that really the case, and should you avoid it? Read on to find out.
Pros: Cheap, small, quick, easy to use
Cons: Nothing that breaks out from all the other WP7 handsets on sale
