Quick Review: HTC Ozone Review
17 April 2010
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.
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.
Conclusion: The HTC Snap is a solid, capable Windows Mobile business device, but at $149, there's not much about it that will steer Sprint customers away from the cutting-edge Palm Pre or the upcoming BlackBerry Tour.
Pros: Fast performance. Good voice quality. Slim.
Cons: Tired OS. No Wi-Fi. Lacks a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack.
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.
Conclusion: For the price, the HTC Ozone XV6175 is an impressive device, despite the less-than-stellar call quality and cramped QWERTY keyboard. We feel the Ozone is best for people who are coming from the Motorola Q9m or are new to the world of smartphones and don’t want to make a large investment, like on the Touch Diamond , but still want basic smartphone features. We also like the added Wi-Fi connectivity and the ability to use the device internationally, which is missing on...
Pros: Slim and attractive form factor, Windows Mobile 6.1, EVDO Rev A and Wi-Fi connectivity, Dual-band CDMA and quad-band GSM for international roaming, Excellent battery life, Costs less than the HTC Snap on Sprint
Cons: Call Quality isn’t as good as the HTC Touch Diamond, QWERTY keyboard is small and cramped, Doesn’t have a high quality feel
Excerpt: Product: HTC Snap Website: www.htc.com/snap System Specifications: Qualcomm MSM 7225, Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, 2.4-inch TFT-LCD QVGA, Quad-band , HSDPA, GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth Price: Dependent on contract HTC'S FOCUS has been on mobiles running Google's Android OS lately, but it's gone back to its roots with its HTC Snap handset.
Pros: Long, long battery life, the Inner Circle, a light, slim handset.
Cons: Keys too close together, no frills version of Windows Phone OS., 'A' key on the keyboard is out of place which causes problems.
