HTC Snap Video Review
9 May 2014
Excerpt: The HTC Snap is what you can call an affordable smartphone. TELUS has this on a promo now for $0.00 on a 3-year. The Snap runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and weighs only 120 grams. At first glance the Snap looks like a regular smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, and that’s exactly what it is. The only thing really special about the Snap is that it comes with HTC’s “Inner Circle”.
Excerpt: Need an affordable smartphone with QWERTY keyboard? PhoneMag has done a hands on video with initial impression on the new T-Mobile Dash 3G, which is also called HTC Snap in other regions. Compare to the Dash 3G’s predecessor, the Dash 3G has a trackball at the middle instead of the 4-way navigation keys. Check out the hands on video here or proceed to PhoneMag for the initial impression. A full review will be posted on the site soon.
Excerpt: This article will tell you the good and the bad bits about HTC's smartphone 'Ozone'. The phone will surprise you in some areas but is utterly predictable in others. This phone has been the first in a long time to really catch my eye.
Excerpt: The HTC Snap is a lightweight phone with a good set of messaging features. It comes with a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and GPS support. Be aware of the pros and cons of owning this particular device.
Summary: The HTC Snap for Sprint offers snappy performance and good messaging features, but the smartphone's plastic build and lack of Wi-Fi don't justify the price.
Pros: The HTC Snap for Sprint offers robust e-mail support, including HTC's Inner Circle feature for prioritizing messages. The Windows Mobile smartphone also has EV-DO Rev. A support, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2-megapixel camera.
Cons: Sprint's version lacks Wi-Fi and dual-mode functionality. The smartphone has a plasticky feel, and the QWERTY keyboard is cramped.
Excerpt: Do you like BlackBerries? Not the fruit, the world renowned email-centric mobile phones. If you do then you may well be interested in the HTC Snap. Does the Snap stand up to its famous rivals though? Read on to find out. What we like The first thing that surprised us about the HTC Snap is its size. Although the handset is wide, so it can fit in a full QWERTY keyboard, it is incredibly thin.
Excerpt: Remember the T-Mobile Dash/HTC Excalibur? It was a thin and light messaging device with snappy performance and a fantastic keyboard. It took HTC a couple of years to make a successor to the celebrated device, and today, we finally have one. It’s called the HTC Snap, and it has gotten a lot of attention from those that appreciate a petite Windows Mobile Standard device that is built for messaging productivity. But does the Snap deliver like the Dash?
Conclusion: Verizon one-ups Sprint with its superior version of the HTC Snap (called the Ozone), adding world phone capability, better battery life, and classier styling, all for $100 less than Sprint's price.
Pros: True world phone at a bargain price. Includes 3G and Wi-Fi radios. Classier look and better keyboard than the Sprint version. Excellent battery life. Snappy performance.
Cons: Creaky OS. No standard-size headphone jack. Weak software bundle.
