Summary: The volume level delivered by the earpiece is quite average, as you might not be able to get what’s said on the other end while in a busy street or underground. The loudspeaker for call alerts is not a stellar performer either. The vibro alert, on the other hand, is very easy to feel as long as the smartphone nests in ar shirt or trousers pocket, rather than in your outerwear.
PHOTOVIEW: Hands-on with the HTC S730 Windows Mobile Smartphone
17 December 2007
Excerpt: The HTC S730 is the Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone I've awaited. Equipped with UMTS/HSDPA and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR as well as its fast 400 MHz Qualcomm processor, it's the perfect device for those consumers and business professionals who want high speed connectivity.
Excerpt: The S730 is the latest incarnation of HTC's popular sliding-keyboard candy bar smartphone. We looked at the previous version (in Orange SPV E650 clothing) in our Smartphone Labs in issue 160 ( web ID: 145113 ), and found it to be a superb phone, albeit one hampered by a lack of high-speed mobile data. The S730 addresses this, providing 3G and HSDPA for rapid internet access. Having 3G onboard means video calling is available, too.
Excerpt: The HTC S730 is the natural progression from the earlier S710, but this time they have added the much sought after 3G option that was missing from the latter. But is this enough to ensure its value?
Excerpt: HTC havde kæmpe succes med S710, som er lillebroderen til den nye model S730. S710 virkede mere nyskabende, da den så dagens lys godt et år siden, men S730 vinder langsomt og sikkert ens high tech-hjerte.
