'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. '
'It's also one of the most responsive accelerometer-equipped smartphones we've tested. '
'cool industrial design'
'We were impressed with some of the small touches, including the super-responsive, touch-sensitive back and search keys, while the physical Start button has a more reassuring click than Apple's iPhone 4, even if it is slightly smaller. '
'You’ll be able to play turn-by-turn games with other users.'
'At 4.41 inches tall by 2.22 inches wide by 0.45 inch deep and 4.4 ounces, the Legend fits nicely in the hand and sits comfortably in a pants pocket.'
'sleek and very aesthetically pleasing phone'
'The new optical trackball (the sensor for which sits in the middle of the central button) also looks great and works well. '
'very distinctive design'
'Talk time, at 5 hours 54 minutes, is good for such a slim phone. '
'You'll hear a faint knocking sound as you enter letters at a varying pitch, which we found reassuring. '
'Colors are bright and text is very clear.'
'The phone is really quite fast--a refreshing change from the sluggish (and often frustrating) Windows Mobile 6.5 experience. '
'The smartphone offers double the flash memory and a higher-megapixel camera than the Bold 9700.'
'Poor Exchange support for consumers.'
'We've got the Social Feeds view, a new WebKit-based internet browser, Universal Search, a richer media experience and lots more besides. '
'A small patch of faux leather adorns the back providing a nice soft, tactile feel. '
'Camera quality is disappointing.'
'It's interestingly got the smallest screen at 'just' 3.7-inches - but this makes it sit well in the hand and feel jauntily nonchalant in the pocket. '
'However, the Mozart has beautifully rounded corners and curved edges.'
'The weather hub is complete with overly elaborate screen transitions and is location-based, so it will automatically update as you move.'
'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'
'Notes is a cool application that allows you to post reminders to yourself, and as the post it notes age on the virtual pin board, they get steadily more crumpled. '
'The button-less glass front and black plastic body, delineated by a silver bevelled edge, gives it a wonderfully simple yet elegant style. '
'Video is soft and defocused-looking, although not quite enough to hide conspicuous compression artefacts.'
'The camera's constant attempts to autofocus can lead to your video being jerky especially on a moving subject, something you need to watch out for. '
'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).'
