Pros: Sturdy, can take a beating Decent speed Louder speaker Smooth and unique UI X box live
Cons: Gaming is slow I felt the keyboard to be a bit too cramped both portrait and landscape the windows phone 7 layout was designed to provide easy access to your apps through live tiles, I noticed that it backfired as I started to add more tiles to the home p
Excerpt: Had this phone for about 4 months. When I heard Windows was releasing a phone I thought the capibilities were going to be vast, but sadly they were not. I ended up starting up another line just to get the Motorola Atrix & get away from the phone. Definitely a phone for just "glance & go" people.
Pros: Streamlined os - fast & doesn't lock up; customizable tiles on homescreen; facebook integration; synchs contacts to windos live; streams movies; excellent browser; htc quality
Cons: Lacks multitasking which I will explain in the review, limitations with ringtones, battery life, inability to synch office docs from phone to computer, phone does not have as many apps as iphone or droid. You also cannot tether the phone to a pc for inte
Pros: The WP7 format is so much better than the pervious OS. There are excellent programs on the phone, like Xbox LIVE and HTC Hub. The phones home screen layout is better than the iPhone 4 and the Blackberry Torch's.
Cons: There are a couple con's about the Surround. One disclaimer is that one can not have there own personal ringtones. A second issue is that the phone has major problems if exposed to alot of moisture. Last the phone has issues with unlocking the phone.
Excerpt: I got the HTC Surround as a gift actually. I already have an HTC phone, and I’m pretty satisfied with the brand. This phone, unlike the other one I have, is a prepaid unlocked phone. This means that I can use the phone with any cell phone service. I’m very used to the Android platform so switching to the Windows 7 operating system is a bit hard to accept. The navigation is a bit more difficult.
Pros: Great phone call sound quality, nice sleek design, beautiful bright graphics on a large screen, easy to manage. Great for interactive stuff such as gaming, videos, and more, and if you're a facebook and messenger addict.
Cons: It didn't import my contacts from the SIM card I use on my blackberry. I'm sure if you're just a little more patient or more phone/computer savvy you can figure it out. Definitely needs a screen protector cause screen smudges easily.
Pros: the way its built feels high quality, and its good sized screen and new os overal simplicit of use make it a good runner up
Cons: the speakers i've noticed that whenever a reaaly good phone comes out the only bad part is something superficial....... and usually something the company decided to change these slide out speakers just dont work
