HTC Freestyle review: HTC Freestyle


The HTC Freestyle has a solid, user-friendly design with all the essential features you need for communication.

The HTC Freestyle lacks an accelerometer and Wi-Fi. The speakerphone is barely usable, and there are too many superfluous apps.

For the right user, the HTC Freestyle offers a beginner smartphone experience without the high price.

For those of you who may like the look of a smartphone, and want something cool like a touchscreen, but don't really need a smartphone, there's a new option…the HTC Freestyle from AT&T. The Freestyle is the carrier's first device to use Qualcomm's new...

Sense UI; excellent build quality; responsive capacitive touchscreen; best virtual keyboard on a featurephone

Slightly weak battery life; low-quality camera

HTC Freestyle Review


A review of the brand new HTC Freestyle from AT&T. Is it truly worth the two year contract price of $99? Read our full review of the HTC Freestyle to find out as we take a look at the phone's design and user interface in the first part of our review.

The HTC Freestyle is not a phone you should invest in, but it is a phone you will definitely feel like purchasing. It's one of those phones that despite its faults still has a wonderful and cool UI, "beware o savvy phone purchaser, let not thy self be...

Review: HTC Freestyle


The HTC Freestyle is the first phone to hit U.S. shores running Qualcomm's BREW MP operating system. Thanks to HTC's tinkering, however, the Freestyle behaves more like a Sense-equipped smartphone...most of the time.

"It's pretty good, although there are some issues..."


I love AT&T. I do. I also really like the style of the HTC Freestyle, too. There are many pros and cons. First of all, it shuts itself on and off. ''Oops. A system error has occurred. Restarting.'' I've seen that warning many times. Which brings me to...

"This is the worst phone."


This is the worst phone. I regret this purchase every day. Most importantlly on the day that I was evacuating my city with my infant son due to a fire, I tried to call my husband to let him know that we were safe and I got the message, "oops, a system...

"Counting down the days to get rid of this phone."


This phone is the worst. I got it because I wanted a new phone that looked current but wasn't ready to deal with a data plan. I used to have an LG Vu, which, looking back, was so good to me. The first two weeks I loved this phone, it looked like an...

No data plan

Slow in everything it does
