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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Summary: HTC has made its first revelation of the year with the HTC Touch Cruise, a full fledged mobile device that packs quite a punch in its connectivity, functionality and performance genre surpassing that of its earlier siblings, the Touch and Touch Dual, and on par with its cousin, the TyTN II.
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!
Summary: The Touch Cruise does well on the reception front. The communicator comes with polyphony, however since a multitude of audio formats may be employed for ring tones, having it onboard is not vital at all.
