HTC Snap Review: In Depth
1 week ago
Conclusion: The HTC Snap isn’t a revolutionary phone, it just does what it sets out to do very well. We really enjoyed using the HTC Snap for emailing and think the keypad is superb. HTC has succeeded in creating a real alternative to a Blackberry, and if you’re not tied to a BlackBerry server then we highly recommend checking it out.
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.
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?
Excerpt: Before I switched to an iPhone as a primary device, I was a lover of the T-Mobile Dash . The Dash did a lot of things well, but unfortunately sat without an update for far too long. The lack of update led me to switch to the BlackJack II and inevitably the iPhone.
Conclusion: We’ve waited a long time to see a follow-up device to the T-Mobile Dash, and the replacement doesn’t disappoint. This time around three U.S. carriers jumped on board. The HTC Snap offers Sprint customers the newest Windows Mobile non-touch screen smartphone with a nice HTC slide panel Home Screen, updated Internet Explorer mobile, tons of HTC software and popular Sprint services.
Pros: Slim smartphone with nice QWERTY, strong software bundle., Slim phone, good QWERTY with dedicated keys to launch most used apps. Strong software bundle. Sprint Navigation works smoothly with the GPS.
Cons: No Wi-Fi. No trackball like the T-Mobile version., No trackball, Sprint TV isn’t smooth. No Wi-Fi.
Summary: In general I really like the
, and if I were on the market for a new mobile phone it would be at the top of a fairly short list. It's simple, fast, and responsive, with easy to use controls and excellent battery life.
It has the basic features I need, without being too overpowered or overpriced: it's currently available to new customers for $149.99 after rebate.
