HTC Arrive (Sprint) Review

ConnectReviews
24 April 2011
  • Summary: The Arrive is a good phone, but is somewhat hampered by the beta nature of Windows Phone 7. Similarly, not everything is perfect about the hardware, as it’s a bit thick and the buttons aren’t the most well designed of any phone we’ve ever seen.
  • Pros: Solid feel to the device, Brilliant, vivid 3.6-inch screen, Slide out keyboard for heavy typing, Good social network integration
  • Cons: A bit thick at .61 inches, Buttons feel oddly sized and a bit strangely placed, Windows Phone 7 feels like it hasn’t been finely tuned yet, Single rear-facing mediocre camera

The Arrive is Sprint’s first device to run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system.
  • Cons: Heavy, Specs seem last-generation, Strange method to remove battery cover, Inaccessible 16GB microSD card, Battery heats quickly

The Gadgeteer
29 March 2011
  • Conclusion: It’s odd, really…the reaction I have to this Arrive is exactly the opposite that I had to the Palm Pre when it first came out. On the Pre, I felt like the OS was genius and the hardware was rubbish.
  • Pros: Gorgeous screen, Great sound, Terrific QWERTY keyboard, Very good battery life
  • Cons: Windows Phone 7 doesn't seem ready, Thick and heavy, No 4G cellular data
