Wonderful Device--Lot of Bugs--Inadequate support for 8925.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The 8925 smartphone is a technological marvel with enogh fun stuff to give a geek a happiness coronary. Push Email from Exchange, a fast tethered modem, GPS, Sync to both Exchange and your favorite ISP mail sever. Way way cool. Ah, if only it worked better. We started with four 8525s that failed so many times that ATT replaced three of them with the 8925 which is only marginally better.
Summary: I heard great things about HTC, and I looked at their product line with great interest. What I liked most about the Tilt was the slide out keyboard. Very nice feature, and I prefer it over a screen-displayed keyboard. That said, what do I like about it: - Slide out keyboard - Camera quality is top notch. What don't I like about it: - You have to use the pointer stick for practically everything.
Summary: If you purchase a HTC TyTn ll,or any other PC-Mobile phone for pay as you go/prepay it may not give you all it's PC facilities. Check with o2, T-Mobile/Orange,Vodaphone, 3, or your mobile service provider first, as some only provide full mobile PC services to post pay/account customers.
Summary: The first thing to mention is the build quality. Many contracts now are for 18 or 24 months, so it is important that phones will last this long. The build quality on this phone was not as good as its predecessor, the TyTN that I had before it. Some of the hard keys are just transparent plastic, with a kind of transfer over the top, which rubs off over a period of time. The other hard keys are on a piece of aluminium, which came lose a few months after I bought it.
Pros: Although it gets criticised, Windows is easy to use and office mobile is handy
Cons: Poor build quality, sluggish and touch screen isn't very responsive
Summary: After over one year of use I just wanted to write few lines about my impression of this PDA. I travel a lot and I thought that a PDA could be helpful to keep in touch and do the IT chores while on the go. I was very wrong and I regret having bought the damn thing. The device tries to do many things but none of them well. In retrospective it sounded too good to be true.
Summary: Worse device I've ever owned. Problems started coming after only half a year of careful use including a faulty LCD screen that HTC does not cover. Customer service is not reliable and technical support capability is weak. This is a defective phone coupled with an unreliable after sales service. I would definitely advice you to stay away from all things HTC. Save your money and all the headache that can come with this phone/brand.
Pros: Tilting screen and keyboard
Cons: Faulty product (Poor LCD quality that is not covered by warranty), Constantly freezing despite very basic applications
Summary: The only thing good about this phone is that the email part works well. Otherwise it is useless. The phone keyboard disappears the moment you are on a call and then the screen blanks so when you need to press numbers for menus you have to reactivate the screen and then press the keboard tab - by that time you have missed your menu option The camera is awful - it doesn't even zoom and takes poor quality pictures.
Summary: This is my 2nd HTC device and now i am convinced that they don't know how to make a good radio for a good voice quality. They have definetly put everything into this phone that one would want to hvae but if it doens't work as it is supposed to, what good that is. Performance is sluggish, voice quality is bad - now one can say this is relative but i have a proof - i bought motorola 9qh as a replacement and where htc shows one or two bars and poor voice quality, motorola...
Pros: It has all the features you want in a phone - quad-band, hspda, wifi, blutooth, gps and windows mobile 6.1 too
Cons: Quality of touch screen is poor, overall performance sluggish at best, quality of voice very poor, battery life sucks
Summary: This phone really does do just about everything but it doesn't do any of them very well. The call quality isn't great, it drops connections (though that could be T-mobile), the screen is slow to refresh, it doesn't allow you to control the sounds and alerts very well, the GPS struggles to get a signal... I could go on. My iPaq 4150 was a much better PDA and my old Nokia a better phone. The HTC TyTn II gets by and it is usable, just not great. Would I buy another? No.
Summary: A very stylish phone packed full of very useful features but let down severely by poor reliability. I have to “paperclip” the devise at least once a week. Options from the front screen disappear. Texting becomes so slow with letters not appearing that it becomes unusable. A restart of the phone is the only way to resolve the problem. The phone is now sadly resigned to my bottom draw.
