HTC Surround Cell Phone Review

Hardware Secrets
11 March 2011
  • Summary: The HTC surround is a unique smart phone with a slide-out surround speaker system. The speaker system makes the phone a little heavy, but to some, that extra weight adds to the sturdiness of an already solidly built phone. For music lovers, the sound is good and the kickstand is useable.

  • Conclusion: That boils down to whether you should go for the phone or not. As you must have by now guessed from our AT&T HTC Surround Review, we are pretty excited with the slide-up speaker and kickstand. The overall design, multimedia capabilities, applications and basic functionalities are a turn-on too.

  • Excerpt: The HTC Surround is one of the first few Windows Phone 7 devices to hit the market in the U.S. It will be available on AT&T, and in addition to featuring Windows Phone 7, it’s got a few other tricks up its sleeve. It’s not your average “black-slab” phone that everyone else keeps releasing.
  • Pros: + Dolby Mobile SRS speakers offer great sound quality

  • Conclusion: The HTC Surround is a solid, professional looking smartphone. Build quality is excellent and the phone feels good in hand. We have our doubts about the speaker bar not because we hate blasting music on the train or in a small room, but because it adds thickness and weight.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, good speakers.
  • Cons: A bit bulky and heavy thanks to the speaker slider, call quality not as good as Samsung Focus.

HTC Surround (AT&T)

PC Magazine
25 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The HTC Surround promises a big entertainment experience with its kickstand and huge slide-out speaker, but Windows Phone 7 just isn't up to the task.
  • Pros: Huge slide-out speaker. Kickstand for watching videos. Windows Phone 7 looks great.
  • Cons: OS doesn't really work in landscape mode. Big speaker can't be used as speakerphone. Short battery life.

HTC Surround Review

Bright Hub
9 November 2010
  • Summary: The HTC Surround, released on AT&T, on November 8th, 2010, is a curious addition to a highly competitive market. One of the first ever smartphones released in the U.S. with Windows Phone 7, the HTC Surround is also the first smartphone to have a slide out soundbar. Is this unique soundbar worth it?

HTC Surround Review

Digitaltrends
9 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The HTC Surround’s heft and nearly unnecessary slide-up screen is forgivable, given the phone’s otherwise solid construction. Not forgivable is the Surround’s substandard camera. If you seek an AT&T Windows Mobile 7 phone, the Samsung Focus is the best choice.
  • Pros: Windows Phone 7 OS, 16GB built-in memory, Long battery life, Kickstand
  • Cons: Poor photo and video quality, No expandable memory slot, Warbly cell call quality, Unnecessary slide-up speaker

HTC Surround Review

26 October 2010
  • Summary: The HTC Surround is a slider phone – but it doesn’t have a slide-out keyboard.  What DOES slides out is some “hi-fi” Yamaha speakers that are normally hiding behind the screen.
  • Cons: Windows Phone 7 OS, 16GB built-in memory, Long battery life, Kickstand
