Summary: The HTC Surround was very disappointing. I guess if you have never owned an iPhone this would be an awesome phone. I bought this phone then sold it about a week later. I was waiting to find something to impress me and there was nothing. The App store is very limited compared to the iPhone app store. A lot of the things that I was used to doing on my phone I was no longer able to do. I also could never get this thing to sync to my computer.
Good features, however phone is extremely slow and lags
26 April 2010
Summary: While it does have nice features that my old phone did not have, like turning the touchscreen off when you put the phone up to your face in a call, turning speakerphone on when placed upside down on a desk, a battery meter that shows times in use since last charge etc., overall the bad outweighs the good. New Windows 6.5 looks nice, but on this phone is slow, constantly freezes up, and has a rather bad lag from when I tap the screen to the response.
Summary: This sexy, classy device hides a multitude of shortcomings.
Pure is a Windows device and as such promises to provide a useful PDA replacement. The Windows Mobile operating system permits storage, organization and even editing of documents, which can be transferred by cable or blue tooth. The phone comes with a desktop sync application, which I did not get around to trying, but probably works adequately.
There are quite a few negatives.
