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: A fter being the first to bring a smartphone with the Google Android operating system onto the market, HTC also clearly shows the early experience with the Android platform in the latest models. Earlier, LetsGoMobile has had the pleasure to test the T-Mobile HTC G1, HTC Magic and the HTC Hero. The Android operating system is very hot and every brand is joining up in order to also have Android in their portfolio.
Excerpt: Like its predecessor, the HTC Legend smartphone has a very distinctive design. This time it's thanks to the aluminium, unibody casing with a brushed finish. Like Apple's MacBook Pro , the HTC Legend's unibody casing is carved from a single block of aluminium, so there are minimal moving parts. The result is a phone that possesses superb build quality and is a delight to hold and use.
Test du HTC Legend : le digne successeur du Hero ?
3 weeks ago
Conclusion: Pas de doutes, le HTC Legend est bel et bien le digne successeur du Hero ! Même s'il ne s'agit pas d'une révolution fondamentale par rapport au Hero sorti un an plus tôt, un certain nombre d'améliorations matérielles et logicielles feront vite oublier le petit frère. Tout d'abord, nous avons particulièrement apprécié les prestations offertes par l'écran AMOLED multipoint capacitif. Ce dernier offre un rendu des couleurs excellent et son temps de réponse est immédiat.
Pros: Corps alu unibody robuste, Souris optique / APN avec flash, Écran AMOLED capacitif multipoint, Améliorations d'HTC Sense / Tuner FM
Cons: Performances GPS moyennes, Pas de touche pour l'appareil photo, Arête supérieure un peu désagréable à l'oreille
