HTC Smart Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • Excerpt: The slinky little Brew-running HTC Smart will be out soon on O2 and could be the low-cost high-ish-spec handset that you've been dreaming of for all these years, succeeding where the myriad Android-toting mid-range handsets have been falling short.

  • Conclusion: The sturdy design of the HTC Smart probably has something to do with the fact that it's become a company trademark to grace its phones with high-quality and enduring materials. Indeed, the HTC Smart exudes that premium feel so typical of HTC's products.
  • Pros: Solid design, Good battery life, Familiar HTC Sense UI
  • Cons: No easy way to get third party applications, Poor camera, Price is not entry level

The budget-focussed HTC Smart borrows many design cues from the Android operating system, but has basic features and lacks a third-party application store

  • Summary: The HTC Smart does what it promises, providing an inexpensive phone for the masses with some smart features, like Facebook and Twitter integration, and a user-friendly interface. However the lack of an app store and its poor on-screen keyboard limit its appeal.
  • Pros: Compact and well built, HTC Sense UI, Brew OS is straightforward and user friendly, good battery life
  • Cons: Screen hard to see in sunlight and not as responsive as alternatives, no extensive customisation options, no third-party-app store, poor on-screen keyboard

  • Conclusion: The HTC Smart is a budget smartphone that struggles to justify its smartphone status. Although it does include HTC’s Sense UI, the Brew platform doesn’t match Android or Windows Mobile in functionality.

  • Conclusion: The HTC Smart is designed to give smartphone features at a price that all can afford. We'd have liked to see Wi-Fi or GPS, but understand that you can't pack everything into a phone aimed at the cheaper end of the market. We're even happy to step around the closed system that it runs on.
  • Pros: Design, build, Sense looks great, affordable
  • Cons: Keyboard experience isn't great, closed system, low res, low power
