HTC Touch Cruise Review

Phone Arena
23 February 2009
  • Conclusion: There are a lot of things to like about this new Touch Cruise.  It may not be the flashiest device HTC offers, but it more than makes up for it with solid all-around performance.  The integration of GPS services is slick; TomTom is one of the best navigation suites out there and Footprints will certainly appeal to users.  TouchFLO 2D is as fast as ever, and the addition of Map Search makes it even more useful.
  • Pros: Great form-factor, Excellent phone performance, Good GPS integration, Snappy, easy to use interface
  • Cons: Would have liked to see a VGA screen

HTC Touch Cruise (unlocked)

6 November 2008
  • Summary: The HTC Touch Cruise offers road warriors and travel lovers great navigation features in a compact smartphone; we just wish it had a better screen.
  • Pros: The HTC Touch Cruise offers great navigation and ships with U.S. maps. The HTC Footprints application provides a nice way to record highlights of your trip. The Windows Mobile smartphone also features 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.
  • Cons: The screen isn't the sharpest, and it washes out in bright sunlight. It's also a bit small for in-car navigation. The onscreen keyboard is cramped, and expandable memory is limited when using maps.

Hands-on with HTC Touch Cruise (Iolite)

Mobile Review
21 October 2008
  • Summary: So what’s the bottom line? Surprisingly, the Touch Cruise doesn’t have any bells and whistles and functionality-wise is in one line with the HTC Touch 3G, which is a no-frills communicator as well. Now I want to get back to what this preview started with – many people expect HTC to churn out top-notch phones, such as the Touch Diamond and HD, one after another. And in this sense, there is no limit to where the demands of this portion of their audience can go.

HTC Touch Cruise - Reviewed

13 August 2008
  • Summary: The HTC Touch Cruise is a brilliant piece of kit.  There is no doubt about it.  It has everything a modern smartphone should have, including WiFi and 3G with HSPDA, Quad band connectivity. It's relatively generous with memory: 256Mb ROM and 128Mb RAM plus a 1Gig SD card. However, it's kinda pricey at its official AUD1149 level. This is mainly due to the inclusion of Co-Pilot Live, a value of AUD169.

  • Summary: Overall a well-rounded device that suffers from only a few setbacks. Look past these however and you’ll find the Touch Cruise intuitive to use and quite well stacked in terms of features. It’s not too shabby on the performance front either.
  • Pros: Interface looks great and is intuitive to use, quick performer, good battery life, control wheel works well.
  • Cons: Lacks a flash for its camera, body retains fingerprints.

HTC Touch Cruise Review

23 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Features The HSDPA is welcome as are the Wi-Fi, GPS and FM radio, but it is niggling that mains power and audio have to share the same mini USB socket. Performance We found nothing intrinsically wrong with this smartphone, but it just doesn’t have the buzz that some others can offer. Battery Life Battery life is slightly above average, although you can really go to town depleting it with all the power-hungry features that are here.

Phone Arena
16 April 2008
  • Conclusion: HTC Touch Cruise will provide a reliable and precise navigation when needed. Aside from that, you will make and receive calls with a very good sound quality, no matter in which country you are. The device can be operated single-handedly -thanks to the TouchFlo 2.0 technology and the rotating 4-way D-pad.
  • Pros: Nice design, Long battery life, Second Internet browser, Very good sound quality during a call
  • Cons: Poor camera quality, The loudspeaker is on the back of the phone and is unusable

Shiny Review: HTC Touch Cruise

Shiny Shiny
4 April 2008
  • Excerpt: The HTC Touch still causes some people in Shiny Towers to give a small orgasmic shudder (disclaimer: this is an exaggeration) and to me nothing could be more perfect that taking a lovely phone and shoving a sat nav in. I'm one of those crazy Londoners with a car, yet have no sense of direction, so this speaks to my heart. So does the Touch Cruise, formerly known as Polaris, succeed in being the dream phone? Yes. Then again, no. But still yes. Confused? So was I.

  • Conclusion: Is it a reasonable upgrade to the P3300 Athemis, most definitely, the added G3, faster overall performance, and in my opinion as nice looking as an other models on the market, the only real barrier is finding one and at a good price!
