Excerpt: There are those few instances when a mobile handset comes my way and I honestly enjoy actually using it not merely for test purposes but on a personal level. The HTC Legend was one of such handsets. It’s designed to look good, feel good and function exactly the same way. Here’s a closer look.
Conclusion: The AMOLED display is positively fantastic and it’s great that HTC has adopted the more standard microUSB port for charging and syncing purposes. The aluminum unibody gives a great sense of this being a premium product and, while I’m not a huge fan of the optical trackpad, it’ll probably be more reliable and durable than the trackball in the long run. The HTC Legend isn’t perfect, but it’s very, very slick and will just have to do for now.
Summary: Additional comments: This may not be a high-fly technological machine, but it was intended for new or low-budget users. After the reminder of what all it does have and can do, it’s still quite a value for the money. New or casual users would still find this a very comfortable mobile phone.
Excerpt: This is a review of the HTC Legend, a mid-range Android based smartphone which runs on Android 2.1 Eclair. It is the successor to the wildly popular HTC Hero and offers many improvements over it.
Excerpt: Virgin launched the HTC Legend and it’s a great addition to their lineup. Over the past few months – ever since Bell took complete control of them and hopped onto HSPA – they have insanely started to offer better devices.
Excerpt: The HTC Legend was just released and the design is really elegant – very similar to the HTC Hero that we saw TELUS release a few months ago. We took a quick look at the hardware in our first review but promised we’d show you another video specifically with a drop test.
Excerpt: HTC has developed into one of the most exciting phone companies in the world. The relatively small Taiwanese company has worked with Microsoft and Google's operating systems to produce some of the best handsets we have ever seen. It's latest batch of phones includes the HTC Legend, a successor to the much-loved HTC Hero and the first HTC phone to feature a unibody aluminium casing. Read our review to see if it's worthy of its name.
Summary: Are there other Android devices on the market that are more powerful? Yes. However, when looking at the Legend as the successor to the HTC Hero (which is what it is), it puts it into perspective. The unibody design is absolutely gorgeous, the optical trackpad is a welcome improvement, and the improved processor combined with Android 2.1 makes this my favorite mid-range Android device to date. I'd just like to see it in the United States (with support for AT&T or...
Pros: Gorgeous hardware; not laggy thanks to upgraded processor and Android 2.1.
Cons: No US version just yet, so purchasers are stuck with EDGE.
