HTC Flyer

CNET
5 December 2011
  • Summary: The 7-inch HTC Flyer is generally slick and easy to use, but it doesn't run the tablet-optimised version of Android, so certain apps are out of bounds until a software update arrives.
  • Cons: Non-HTC apps don't suit the big screen; terrible battery life compared to competitors; doesn't run the latest version of Android.

HTC Flyer Wi-Fi

intomobile.com
9 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The Wi-Fi only version of the Flyer lacks 3G radio, thus allowing users to connect to the Internet only when in a hotspot. Rest of the specs are identical and include a 7-inch touchscreen, 1.5GHz single-core processor, two cameras (5-megapixel on the back and 1.3-megapixel on the front), GPS, Bluetooth, tons of built-in storage and a memory card slot. All this is nicely packed in a fancy-looking aluminum unibody.
  • Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
  • Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

HTC Flyer Review

SlashGear
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: All too often we criticize new tablets for trying to take on the iPad by photocopying its specs. Apple's slate has undoubtedly changed - and dominated - the consumer touch device market, but it seems that sales success has blinkered many rivals to the possibility that there are other ways in which tablets can find a role in our lives.

HTC Flyer WiFi Review

SlashGear
5 October 2011
  • Conclusion: This device will be running you $499.99 at Best Buy and, if you're lucky, you can go in your local store and ask and it might be there right now. Online at the moment I publish this they're still stuck on pre-orders. Other prices include English gems such as £599.99 for the 32GB 3G version, and £479.99 for the 16GB WiFi-only model. The 3G version hasn't revealed its price in the USA quite yet, but we're guessing an extra $100 wouldn't be out of the question.

HTC Flyer Review: In Depth

Recombu
1 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The HTC Flyer certainly succeeds where other Android tablets have fallen down, in that it provides a slick, nicely designed user interface. We really love how HTC Watch is implemented and how the Magic Pen/stylus works; we had hours of fun doodling on our screens with the Flyer. Where the Flyer falls down is on app support and battery life; if you’re the kind of person who wants a tablet to tinker with and install a multitude of apps, then we’d advise you to wait for the...

HTC Flyer review

theverge.com
23 September 2011
  • Summary: In the past few months, we’ve reviewed four Honeycomb tablets, which despite some minor differences — a USB port here, a keyboard dock there — have largely been built from the same cloth. You’re familiar with the threads: a 1280 x 800-resolution 10.1-inch display, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and a smattering of Google’s tablet OS. But not the HTC Flyer. Amongst all the new tablets, HTC’s entry has been the biggest anomaly.
  • Pros: Extremely well-built, Very polished Sense UI, Stylus adds a new dimension, Over seven hours of battery life
  • Cons: Stylus costs $80, easy to lose, Poor camera quality, No OCR apps supported

HTC Flyer

PC Magazine
6 September 2011
  • Conclusion: For artists and hand-writers, the HTC Flyer is a solid tablet thanks to its well-implemented pen-specific features. But if you're not interested in pen input, Android tablets with Google's latest tablet-specific Honeycomb OS are a better bet.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Clear, bright screen. Excellent pen input. Sense UI improves on Gingerbread OS. HTC's extra apps are solid.
  • Cons: Outdated, non-tablet-specific version of Android. Google Talk video chat isn't supported in Gingerbread. Slow browser performance. Cluttered default layout. Cameras are only mediocre.

HTC Flyer Review

27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: It has been over a month since I received the HTC Flyer for review and I have just decided to post my review on this device. I am sorry for the delay, but this device became one of those forgettable review devices that I receive and was placed below several review units and just got lost in the shuffle.

8 August 2011
  • Conclusion: HTC goes all out with connectivity options on the Flyer with HSPA equipped radio for the 3G version along with 802.11b/g/n wireless networking and Bluetooth 3.0 support. An internal GPS antenna is also present for location services. As with most tablets, you have front facing (1.3MP) camera as well as a camera on the back (5MP) along with the usual assortment of sensors for proximity, light, G-Sensor and a digital compass.
