'deep, rich, vibrant images'
'Slim attractive design'
'Thin, tall and narrow chassis makes it more comfortable to use than other big-screen Androids'
'Great user interface customisations'
'We're happy to see the Sense UI back again, as the circular base (with menu and phone functions) is back again, this time packing in a key to take you to the myriad of personalisation options.'
'There's no point beating about the bush, if you don't mind your phones being big, the HTC Desire HD is the best smartphone on the market right now. '
'attractive aluminium case'
'Having everything exactly as you left it makes the phone feel like a cozy and welcoming place -- unlike, say, Windows Phone 7, which tends to act like a neurotic housekeeper that'll tidy away your cup before you've finished enjoying your tea.'
'It's also the showcase handset for Apple's newest operating system, iOS 4, which adds a selection of long-overdue features, plus a selection of smaller tweaks that we weren't expecting. '
'best media playing phone'
'Overhauled iOS 4 .'
'Moreover, in our experience, unlike plastic, glass screens are essentially scratch proof in normal use so using glass on the back as well will hopefully mean the iPhone 4 will look flawless for years to come, no matter how rough you treat it. '
'You'll also be able to redeem iTunes gift cards on the phone in the iTunes App store.'
'The 320-by-480-pixel screen is slightly brighter, with a little more shadow detail.'
'The new 32GB iPhone 3GS was ready to use in just 29.2 seconds - about half the time.'
'Slick and responsive interface'
'For all its limitations Windows Phone 7 is the fastest and most responsive mobile operating system on the market. '
'Poor multimedia capabilities.'
'snappy smartphone performance'
'At the bottom of the phone there's a full optical trackpad, which makes a change from the Terminator eye on the HTC Legend and Desire, and is more useful for when trying to scroll through text, and it's flanked by the other standard Android keys for navigation. '
'The overall result is a phone that looks and feels exceptionally well made.'
'You get a pixel density of 252ppi, and it is both bright and vibrant, only falling short of the Samsung Galaxy S, whose AMOLED display trumps its rivals when it comes to serving up deep blacks and striking colours. '
'the key spacing seems large and the buttons big (well, big enough).'
'Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G are all onboard.'
'Excellent 8MP camera'
'While we have some complaints, and the $199 price will be too steep for some, overall the Incredible is one sweet smart phone. '
'All in all, the Incredible looks and feels like a modern, sophisticated smartphone with a lot of that masculine edge that Motorola imparted to the Droid along with the curvy smoothness the Droid Eris sports. '
