Summary: Although the windows apps are a bit limited on this version, the phone is great for my needs and the tilted keyboard makes this an extremely fast and easy note taking and text writing device. The fact that the touch screen is also responsive also makes for a complete feel. Only draw backs are the inability to upgrade to windows 8, the camera is poor in low light and the screen size.
Summary: I got this phone for 30$ shipped from cheapcellphonereplacement I am very satisfied with this phone but the back has a couple spots of worn down paint I am sending this review with this phone I love it haven't had much experiment yet with it but overall its 5 star except for the paint worn
Summary: HTC's Arrive 7 Windows smartphone is really the next generation version of the infamous HTC Tilt series (containing the Touch Pro 2 line of devices). The full 5-row qwerty keyboard, coupled with the tilting display make for an excellent productivity tool. Typing out emails, MMS messages, Office documents... is quite a breeze, and faster than most virtual keyboards can hope to offer. Otherwise, this is a solidly performing Windows powered smartphone.
Summary: The Arrive is a great phone, i got it because i wanted to try out something besides Android and iOS. WP 7.5 is easy to use with a very different style. The phone takes good pictures and has a great display. I have found 1 drawback after 2 months of having it, app developers do not make apps for WP 7.5 like they do on both other platforms so you can't play popular games or games with your friends like bike race this is why I only gave it 4 stars.
Summary: Pros: Solid functioning with slick and easy to navigate interface. Comes with Microsoft office applications and bare minimum pre-loaded apps so there isn't alot of "junk" taking up memory that you find on other popular phone OS's. No buggy issues or lock-ups to date after a year of use. Quality physical construction with as perfect as they come touch screen operation. Nice slide out physical keyboard for those of us who prefer that to touch screen keyboard.
Still stands alone in its niche as a productivity device

Summary: I have had my Arrive for just over 18 months (a virtual eternity in mobile tech), having bought it in the very early days of Windows Phone 7. Other reviewers are right that this is a business phone, or put differently, a productivity phone. I am a mobile gadget enthusiast, but also an attorney who relies on this device as a workhorse for emails, simple document review, and a wide range of web-based information.
Summary: I can't stand Microsoft, but this phone is brilliant. It's fast, easy to navigate, and really streamlines the things you use most often in a phone. The good: - Contacting people, organizing groups, and social networking is a breeze. Windows Live makes synchronizing contacts and schedules with your PC effortless.
