Summary: I have it almost for a month. But, it seems weary incomplete. I hope that the mango update will fix much of the problems. The operating system is impressive and promising but not stable enough. It does not reboot by itself and that is ok. But it requires a reboot every 2 or 3 days. If you don't reboot the phone, applications start behaving strange like: not being able to enter contacts in the agenda, the camera software goes crazy; the battery indicator does not change.
Summary: loAs I have now read all the reviews I cannot simply understand people buying a phone just because it looks awesome.Let's face it everybody, this mobile OS, WP7 is unfinished, it lacks a huge pack of features, basic features like bluetooth file transfers, ringtone personalization, file explorer to manage your files in your own way, that stupid 99$/year fee to unlock your phone for your personal created apps. In general this OS is way too "locked" for users.
Summary: There are too many features and problems that this device's OS has to be able to write them all here.It's a pitty that MS lauched an unfinished OS to the market and we users got fouled by them. I won't buy a MS phone again, it;s like throwing my money in garbage.
Pros: Big screen, advanced hardware,slim,good battery and pretty good camera.
Cons: The OS holds this device back, it lacks tons of basic features: bluetooth obex,personal ringtones,phone is blocked to install apps outside marketplace without paying that stupid 99$ fee, no file manager, no flash etc etc etc
Summary: I was considering this phone a while ago. In general it has decent specification and well built as usual with HTC phones. However it is overpriced and the app market for Windows 7 is almost non-existent compared to that of Android or IPhone. So I returned this one and bought an Android phone (Orange San Francisco) instead.
Conclusion: Great review, we will be reviewing it next week i think. Not sure whether i prefer the 7 range or one of the Desire's? HTC have really taken a lot of share int he smartphone market this year. What is your favourite of the 7 range?
