'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).'
'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.'
'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. '
'While the phone feels a bit heavy in the hand at 165g (5.8 ounces), it doesn't feel as bulky in your pocket due to its smooth rounded edges.'
'clean, bright interface'
'Available for $199 on AT&T, we like the idea of a phone with strong media capabilities, a kickstand for watching movies and TV, and a big speaker that can fill a small room with Zune tunes. '
'The HTC Surround also has a dedicated audio chip for its two speakers, and what we were left with was one of the best sound performances we've ever experienced on a phone—calling and blasting the Beastie Boys in public. '
