HTC Radar Review
27 September 2013
Excerpt: The HTC Radar is the younger brother of the HTC Titan, a truly mammoth Windows Phone smart phone that rocks a 4.7-inch display. The HTC Radar isn't quite so gigantic, but it's no less exciting, and could be a good deal cheaper.
Excerpt: The HTC Radar 4G is one of the first Windows Phone devices to come running Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) out of the box. It’s also one of the ...
Pros: Gorgeous Mac-like unibody design; mango brings tons of U.I. and performance improvements; fast web surfing speeds; seamless social media integration is better than ever; now with multi-tasking, above average battery life
Conclusion: The HTC Radar is a well designed smartphone that offers a solid, reliable Windows Phone experience. The battery gives you a decent day’s worth of power and there’s nothing really to grumble about at all. That said, there’s not much to really, truly rave about either.
Summary: The HTC Radar 4G is the first new device available in the U.S. running Windows Phone 7.5. Sure, the upgrade has been available on existing devices for a while, but now we finally get to see some of the new enhancements and new hardware improvements.
Pros: Premium build and construction, Smooth performance
Cons: Specs are last generation, Videos are rather dull looking
Summary: HTC Radar has elegant aesthetics, sturdy build, a responsive user interface and great camera response. It has tough competition from Samsung Omnia W which has powerful processor and the Super AMOLED screen. If the pricing is got to the same level this phone can surely be recommended.
Pros: Smooth performance, High-quality construction, Good video recording quality
Cons: Immature OS with limited app support, Dull pictures
Conclusion: The HTC Radar 4G looked pretty good for the $99 with contract price tag when it first came out. But the new Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone on T-Mobile gives it a serious run for the money, so be sure to look at the Lumia 710 as well.
Pros: Attractive, well-made and affordable Windows Phone.
Cons: Limited storage for serious music folks, battery not user replaceable.
Excerpt: The HTC Radar 4G is T-Mobile's first Windows Phone device to debut with Mango and the carrier's first one with HSPA+. More importantly, it's also the only Windows Phone T-Mobile is currently selling and seemingly the only smartphone in its library that isn't black or dark gray.
Pros: Solid build, Stand-out look, Bright screen
Cons: So-so call quality, Windows Phone 7.5 still lacks a good ecosystem
Excerpt: HTC is coming out with smartphones at a blistering pace and while it was dominated by Android based handsets around six months back, it is slowly but surely expanding its Windows Phone 7 portfolio as well.
