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.
Conclusion: We are happy to say the HTC Legend is certainly not a victim of the sequel syndrome. Hard facts of life, you know. Traditionally, first episodes of acclaimed movie series tend to be the best, with sequels proving to be progressively worse.
Pros: Awesome build quality and spectacular design, Really snappy (with almost all applications), Capable camera, Excellent in-call quality, Partial Flash support
Cons: Limited video playback capabilities, Mediocre audio playback quality, Discomforting display (in direct sunlight)
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.

Summary: The HTC Legend may lack the extra-large screen of the flagship HTC Desire, but the unibody aluminium casing is a superb piece of industrial design. The Legend is an excellent smartphone and a solid improvement over its predecessor.
Pros: Superb industrial design and build quality, excellent AMOLED display, great user interface, snappy performance, excellent Web browser
Cons: On-screen keyboard isn't as polished as the iPhone's, limited multimedia capabilities
Conclusion: The HTC Legend is without doubt the phone any Android fan should upgrade to, especially owners of the Magic or Hero. Although it may not have the speedy Snapdragon processor as the HTC Desire, it’s fast enough to run multiple applications.
Summary: An excellent phone that’s powerful, fast, user friendly and good looking. It’s what all smartphones aspire to be.
Pros: Where to start? Superb internet, email, social networking, an intuitive user interface, a responsive touch-screen, powerful multitasking abilities, a solid and attractive build and a five-megapixel camera with flash.
Cons: Adobe Flash makes web video jumpy, and the bundled headphones aren’t great.
Excerpt: The HTC Legend, as the name might suggest, is a direct successor to the company's popular Hero, which formerly held the crown of Best Android Phone - that is, before Google brought out its own Nexus One.
