'helpful "Great phone'
'Test photos looked smooth and sharp outdoors, with slightly flat color.'
'That’s because the HD2 looks and feels like a full-fledged mobile Internet device that you can slip in your pocket. '
'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. '
'The 3.2-inch capacitive screen is bright, vivid and viewable under pretty much any lighting condition.'
'Thanks to the phone's small size, its power button is far easier to reach than the HTC Desire's. '
'The software problems we experienced might be ironed out, but we're still not keen on how easy it is to dial someone by mistake and the screen size doesn't really let HTC Sense fly.'
'Unlike most of the new handsets, the Pro 7 will feature a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging and e-mail. '
'Forced reliance on Zune over drag and drop.'
'the top edge of the phone is extremely uncomfortable to hold against your ear thanks to the sharp ridge along the top.'
'beautiful Windows Phone 7 handset'
'The Quantum is heavy.'
'It's quite heavy at 4.7 by 2.3 by .6 inches (HWD) and 6.2 ounces.'
'Built for both business and entertainment, the LG Quantum is probably the most versatile of the latest Windows 7 phones, thanks to that generous QWERTY slider, while the Samsung Focus just flaunts a Super AMOLED screen and the HTC Surround specializes in Dolby sound on the go for the music and video addict. '
'The phone features a full QWERTY keyboard and a nice 3.5-inch WVGA resolution touchscreen display. '
'The slight curve makes it comfortable to hold the phone when typing messages, and it also props the screen at a nice angle for better viewing.'
'Speakerphone transmissions sounded muddy.'
'Slick Windows Mobile overlay.'
'We were able to pair the Treo Pro with the Logitech Mobile Traveller Bluetooth headset and the Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphones with no problem.'
'thoughtful design touches'
'Call quality was distinct and fairly loud through an elongated hands-free speaker on the Palm Treo Pro's reverse, next to the 2Mp camera lens.'
'Conference calling is strangely absent from this phone, we couldn't find it under any menu or key shortcut, and there is no mention in the user manual.'
