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.
Summary: With its design improvements and feature enhancements, the HTC Legend is a worthy upgrade from the Hero and one of the most solid and well-built Android phones we've seen in its class. We can only hope that a North American version is released soon.
Pros: The HTC Legend boasts a beautiful design with an AMOLED touch screen. The Android 2.1 smartphone adds a faster processor, more RAM, and a camera flash. HTC Sense features new and useful enhancements.
Cons: The Legend isn't compatible with North American 3G bands. Camera quality is mixed.
Summary: The development progress of Google's Android platform is charging at full force and its 'partner-in-crime', HTC, is still continuously showing love for this popular open source operating system. Now, why do we say that? Having experienced the awesome HTC Hero (of which, we presume the Legend heavily borrows its namesake from) that released July last year, barely a year later today, the Legend has already begun - well, wordplay here, but you readers should get the drift.
Pros: Sturdy, lightweight, and beautiful exterior, New HTC Sense UI, Reasonable Battery Life
Cons: Smudge-Friendly Screen, Sub-par Imaging Quality, Mediocre Video Playback
Summary: W ith the HTC Legend handset, the market leader for Windows Mobile smartphones shows that they are also excelling with Android. The smartphone has a fine design and the aluminum body is very decent. Thanks to the Android operating system, you of course have access to all Google mobile services, and contacts and agenda-items are synchronized effortlessly. The 5.0 megapixel digital camera ensures for nice photos under almost all circumstances.
Review: HTC Legend – A Poor Man’s iPhone or an Android Legend?
30 April 2010
Summary: The HTC Legend has been described as a “poor mans iPhone“ by many other reviewers of the device, and to a large extent I would have to agree. Some parts of the phone work very well and others require you to have a little know how to get things done. The interface is not as simple as the iPhone’s and this is very noticeable.
Excerpt: It’s a good-looking Android phone packed with features all in an aluminium body. But does the HTC Legend actually live up to the hype under the bonnet, or did the Taiwanese manufacturer get a bit lazy and just create a metal version HTC Hero? Let’s take a look in our HTC Legend review.
Summary: Featuring a superb, Apple-esque design, HTC's latest Android smartphone — the HTC Legend — is one of the sexiest looking mobile phones we've ever reviewed. The successor to the HTC Hero, the HTC Legend is not just about looks: it offers improved software and superior performance.
