Excerpt: Sydney reviews the HTC Freestyle , a unique featurephone that almost looks like a smartphone. It uses HTC's Sense UI which brings a lot of cool features like the popular weather and clock widget, Friendstream, and a notification system similar to what you would see on an Android smartphone.
Summary: One of the new HTC smartphone uses Brew MP ( Brew Mobile Platform ) is HTC Freestyle. Make-up and completeness of its features was recorded not far different from previous HTC phones, HTC Smart. HTC Freestyle adopting capacitive touch screen, with 3.2-inch diagonal screen.
Summary: I approached this device with high hopes and HTC did not disappoint. All the way from the physical design of the phone right down to the notifications and customization features and everything in between, HTC gave this phone their all and it really shows.
Pros: Sense UI; excellent build quality; responsive capacitive touchscreen; best virtual keyboard on a featurephone.
Summary: People at HTC have developed yet another nice smartphone with Freestyle model and this review was reveal this thing. Although it lacks some important features, it makes up for it by being a user-friendly device with good performance.
Conclusion: Overall, we like the HTC Freestyle except for two points…the poorly designed battery door, and the continual “hiss” heard while on calls. The second of these we consider the more serious, and a deal-breaker for some, as it becomes annoying for any calls lasting more than a few minutes.
Pros: Highly customizable HTC Sense interface, Device feels solid overall, Plenty of pre-loaded apps
Cons: Constant “hiss” heard in every call, Poorly designed battery door, Lacks Wi-Fi
