Summary: I bought this phone because my old one totally gave out on me after having it for less than a year. I have almost had it for a year and it is still working. It is very slow sometimes. One morning I woke up and it had totally reset itself. So if it weren't for my Google account I would would have lost all my contacts. I only have Google Maps for GPS purposes I feel the poor phone couldn't handle much else.
Summary: I had this phone for two years. By the end of that time I was ready for a new phone. Starting out it was fine, for being an early smartphone. It was slow to process anything, froze constantly. I had it in an outterbox case, it felt burning hot if it was on for a while, or held a long phone call. Reception was average, data speed on the slower side. The trackball was a nice feature in theory but it shown wear after about a year. Peeled.
Summary: I heard great things about HTC, and I looked at their product line with great interest. What I liked most about the Tilt was the slide out keyboard. Very nice feature, and I prefer it over a screen-displayed keyboard. That said, what do I like about it: - Slide out keyboard - Camera quality is top notch. What don't I like about it: - You have to use the pointer stick for practically everything.
Summary: The good things are self evident. Now for the bad. 1. poor battery life. Buy 3500mah battery & door fixes this problem. 2. not enough volume. In a louder than library environment, on speakerphone or not, it can be difficult to hear. 3. useless preloaded apps cannot be uninstalled. annoying. The phone needs to be rooted in order to remove them. 4. user manual touches on the basics only. But there are forums & youtube videos to help. 5.
Excerpt: Sorry but mine is going back. Yes the phone does everything, and for a geek like me, its awesome, I wouldn’t recommend this to a non geek. This OS does almost everything you can imagine and them some. You can hold the search button down and ask anything like “what is the difference between a frog and a toad?” and the phone will google it! Same awesome feature in Google Maps. The OS is great and very versatile, but I think the device isn’t powerful enough for it.
Pros: Versitle, Real GPS, tons of Apps, Google Voice Search
Cons: Battery Life, Lag(not as bad as some claimed, if you restart/appkill), have to restart or run app killer to free up memory which fills up rather fast!, Dropped calls (my prevous sprint Blackberry dropped very rarley)
