Summary: I absolutely love this phone. I have been having small problems here and there with speed. And sometimes the volume on my phone keeps turning down on low even after I turn it up. The good news is this company does offer a warranty if need it. I think I do just don't want to be without a phone.
Bad Keyboard and slow processor ... Hacker's Paradise
10 June 2013
Summary: The phone does what it needs to but keyboard types wrong letters and it cannot be changed (the softkeys not the digital one). Also the processor speed is very very slow so dont expect it to be able to remember all your programs and apps always. Also the phone sometimes has a mind of its own and plays music and downloads stuff without you even unlocking it at the start, so its got high possibility of hacking in my view. But it is a good phone and does the basic things.
Summary: I will come back and update this review in 6 months after I have had some experience. But even before then, it's obvious that the slider mechanism on this is flimsy and I'll be lucky if it lasts a year, or if it can survive one fall. My last phone, an HTC myTouch 3G slider, also failed within 12 months because the slider lost its electrical connections.
Excerpt: i made the leap from a nokia e97mini to the htc. After 4 months of use, i hate it. I have problems with signal strength compared to my old phone on the same network. It drops calls all the time, the battery life is less than 1 day( with autoupdate options off!). It has NO bluetooth voicedialing support ( this is an android limitation). The phone is fast to respond, load apps etc, the screen is good quality altho very hard to see in sunlight.
Pros: Screen is nice, fast interface, good web browsing, good camera with easy share options
Cons: NO blutooth voice dialing support, Battery a bit pants, Poor reception compared to my old phone, poor call quality compared to my old phone, touch button sensitivity is random
Summary: Pros: Beautiful screen quality. Decent camera/video. Not spectacular, but it's a PHONE. As a camera/videocam, it is functional and useful. It's fine. LOVE the keyboard. Oh yeah. User interface and the look-and-feel of the OS is very nice. Lovely brushed aluminum case makes it feel substantial in the hand and it looks super sexy. Cons: 1. When coming from New Zealand to the US and swapping my NZ sim card out for a US sim, it could NOT connect to my google accounts.
Summary: The phone is an excellent choice but you must check what data band your operator use, because HTC phones 3G work only with 900/1200 bands. Otherwise the phone only gets EDGE (2G) data transfer. TGS (who sold the phone) service was outstanding.
Summary: Excellent phone in all respects, the camera is extremely good, but I leave this point against it is the battery life is extremely bad, the HTC should experience of taking a long battery life, I miss my nokia, lasted an weeks using it a lot.
Excerpt: Every so often you realise that it has merged information that you never asked it to – connecting your Facebook accounts with your address book. I don’t want my friends Facebook profile pics appearing on my screen when they phone me, thank you. Neither do I want you to try force me to give you my email address and phone number so that you can link me to friends and contacts, thank you. Actually, bugger off, I share and link when and how I want.
Pros: Nice big screen, and nice big keyboard Fast, responsive screen and interface Classy high-end metal finish
Cons: Keyboard is not fingertip friendly, needs a little nipplet on some keys to let you locate your fingers haptically. Display does not auto-sense brightness. Thereâ€™s meant to be a sensor, so maybe firmware bug Battery life is 2-3 days with only reasonable use, and being careful to turn off power gluttons Z-fold hinge sometimes feels slack, although isnâ€™t â€“ and prevents you using a protective case Extremely Mac unfriendly.
