HTC Tattoo Review – the perfect budget Android phone

17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Why an HTC Tattoo review, you might ask? Isn’t it just yet another budget Android phone? Well, technically yes – at least in the fact that it’s certainly a budget Android phone, which is perfect if you’re looking to get…

HTC Tattoo Review: In Depth

5 August 2010
  • Excerpt: HTC is the outstanding brand when it comes to Android phones, not least because of the company’s compelling Sense interface that improves on vanilla Android. The Tattoo can even change its casing so you can customise its outside, too. It’s a budget smartphone with slightly cut-down specs. Cheaper then, but is it as appealing? What we like HTC Sense makes a good system better.

Expert Review

7 July 2010
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a compact touchscreen smartphone on a budget then the Tattoo is for you. Android is a fantastic operating system, and here it's twinned with a great design and lots of features. Only the slightly disappointing touchscreen blots its copybook.
  • Pros: HTC has succeeded in making the Tattoo beautifully tiny and affordable without ripping out tons of features or spec. All the usual smartphone stuff is here, plus a great homescreen layout that automatically draws together all your social network updates from Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. The Sense UI draped over the top of Android is lag-free and a joy to use.
  • Cons: Shots from the 3.2MP camera are a wee bit average, but our chief gripe with the Tattoo is the fact that its touchscreen is less responsive than that used by the (admittedly higher spec) HTC Hero, leading to typing mistakes and some menu issues.

HTC Tattoo (unlocked)

5 July 2010
  • Summary: The HTC Tattoo is a fair entry-level Android device with a cool customization feature, but there are better options for the North American market.
  • Pros: The HTC Tattoo is compact, but still offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The Android 1.6 device is enhanced by HTC Sense.
  • Cons: It has a small, low-resolution screen. The smartphone also doesn't support North American 3G bands.

  • Conclusion: We would like to thank Brightex, Authorized distributors of HTC products in Pakistan for giving us the test unit for this review. Brightex Distribution is an International distribution chain of IT and Communications devices and it has recently started its operation in Pakistan. We can see more devices coming in Pakistan as well and I would leave you with “Desire” for reviewing more HTC phones in future.

HTC Tattoo review: Your phone, your ink

GSM Arena
12 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The HTC Tattoo took the plunge to a lower segment of the smartphone market to give Android some fresh air and open space. It was quite a while ago really but now that more and more droids are keen to think small, let’s see how it works for one of the pace setters. Compact size and reasonable price tag, the HTC Tattoo was among the first to try and sell Android to the masses.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, Heavily customizable: exchangeable covers, Android OS v1.6 (Sense UI), upgradeable to 2.1 Eclair, 2.8" resistive touchscreen of QVGA resolution, Qualcomm MSM 7225 528 MHz CPU, 256 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 3.15 megapixel fixed-focus camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and GPS receiver, Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, Standard miniUSB port for charging and data, Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP), microSD card slot, up to 8GB support ...
  • Cons: QVGA resolution doesn’t do Android/ Sense UI graphics justice, No video-call camera, Camera lacks auto focus, flash and has a rather basic UI, CIF@15fps video recording (352 x 288 pixels) is below par, No voice dialing, No DivX or XviD video support or a third-party application to play that, Poor MP4 playback performance - barely watchable in video resolution above QVGA, No Flash support for the web browser, No Bluetooth file transfers (not without rooting), No TV-out...

HTC Tattoo Review – the perfect budget Android phone

3 March 2010
  • Conclusion: HTC have pulled off quite a coup with the HTC Tattoo. With it, they’ve turned the HTC Hero, which was crowned the phone of the year 2009 by virtually everyone in the mobile phone industry, into a budget Android phone. OK, so it’s got a few issues because of this price, but with the beautiful Sense UI running on top, you’ll never notice. Everything about the Tattoo runs the same as the Hero.
