'However, unlike the LG Optimus 7, it somehow lacks the premium feel of the brushed aluminium and the smaller camera on the back doesn't look anywhere near as fancy.'
'The position of the power button on the top edge combined with the lack of any physical buttons also means you always have to reach up to the top of the phone to unlock the screen – somewhat inconvenient when you've only got one hand free.'
'Video is soft and defocused-looking, although not quite enough to hide conspicuous compression artefacts.'
'Excellent hardware design'
'Dynamic aspects of the homescreen'
'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.'
'It's still Windows Mobile underneath .'
'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.'
'The Quantum is heavy.'
'Usable QWERTY keyboard'
'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.'
