HTC S630 Cavalier with WM6 Standard


Click here to check out the great selection at Negri Electronics! INTRODUCTION The HTC S630 Cavalier is largely considered to be the successor to the

400 MHz processor feels fast ; Significant number of bands, including HSDPA ; Dynamic light meter

Battery door does not sit flush ; Key mapping incorrect for some applications ; Sharp case edges noticeable in pocket, hand ; No GPS

This is an impressive piece of hardware. The lightening fast processor and high speed network access will mow through just about anything you can throw at it. The issues regarding the erroneous key mapping is unfortunate, almost an oversight. I...

HTC S630


Every day I carry my mobile phone, my day planner, my two-way pager and my diary around with me as tools to help me get things done. Over the years, the diary and day planner were melded together into my PDA then my mobile phone joined in but the most...

The HTC S630 is a logical successor to the HTC S620 or T-Mobile DASH. It's not a perfect successor though; the drop in radio performance and general quality is a disappointment.

Dopod C730


Dopod's C730 has some great and highly enticing technology hiding under its slim hood. A pity then, that it's such a poor smartphone to actually use.

Windows Mobile 6 ; HSDPA ; 802.11g

Small buttons bad for dialling ; Keyboard Windows Mobile doesn't work that well ; Twitchy scroll controls ; No secondary camera

Ultimately, the C730 is something of a case study in how to take great and interesting technology and then make it irrelevant through poor interface design.

HTC Cavalier S630 (unlocked)


This phone is a great upgrade to my Dash/S620/Excalibur. I was over the fact that the Dash was so slow. The camera starts almost instantly compared to around 10 sec for the Dash. This phone also accepts 4GB microSD cards as opposed to the 2GB limit on...

HTC Cavalier S630 (unlocked)


I used to be a proud owner of an HTC Excalibur s620. It worked perfectly and smoothly, without a single bug or problem. Sadly, I smashed it and had to buy a new phone. I decided to go for the HTC Cavalier s630, a supposedly newer, better version of the...

Has G3, more memory, better camera

No support in US, full of bugs

HTC Cavalier S630 (unlocked)


Heard and read a lot of good things about the Dash so I got this phone unlocked about 2 weeks ago to replace an old MPx 220. It has a 400MHz processor so Windows Mobile 6 enjoys the speed. Mobile Office is excellent. Being able to use AT&Ts 3G is great...
