HTC HD Mini review


We had to exercise our neglected patience muscle with this one, but at long last we've gotten ahold of a real live HD Mini and put it through its paces. Equipped with the same processor, screen size and resolution as HTC's Legend, but running the HD2's...

Excellent camera and album for casual pics ; Sense makes up for a lot of WinMo's foibles ; Effortless email and social networking setup

Fiddly back cover and no hard camera button ; Browsers have rendering issues ; Better alternatives exist costing not much more

HTC HD mini review: Smart pup


There was a time when Windows Mobile used to rule the smartphone seas. Then along came Symbian but that's a whole other story. It was touchscreen that showed to all the willing challengers that Windows Mobile is just too big to turn around quickly...

3.2" 65K-color HVGA capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch input ; Compact body and bold industrial design ; Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Professional OS with Sense UI ; Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz CPU and 384MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSDPA...

Poor display sunlight legibility ; No dedicated camera key and no lens cover ; Card slot under the battery cover ; No DivX/XviD video support out-of-the-box ; Preloaded CoPilot Live navigation software is a trial version only ; No secondary video-call...

So, mini is perhaps the right approach to users who would otherwise feel timid about giving Windows Mobile a try – especially with so many touchscreen temptations around. On the other hand, it does matter whose mini version it is. The almighty HD2 was...

Do you disagree with the bigger-is-better camp? Fear not, HTC has those with small pockets covered with the upcoming release of its scaled down HD2.

HTC Wildfire S Mini Review (Virgin Mobile)


With the times as tough as they are today it is no surprise that many people look to save money anywhere they can, and for many an easy savings is in their cell phone bill. Virgin Mobile has done a ...

If you are looking for a device on a pre-paid plan that won't break the bank, but will still offer you amazing build quality and some very nice software the HTC Wildfire S is a great choice for you. While the size may not be for everyone, the smaller...

HTC Wildfire S mini-review (Vodafone network)


One fortunate side-effect of all the craziness going on at the expensive end of the smartphone spectrum is that more-affordable devices are starting to become faster and better. Last year's HTC...

You can always part with an additional £100 and bag a Desire S, or an extra £200(ish) and walk away with a Sensation. And if you can, we'd recommend you do. But not everyone has the means or the inclination to blow this kind of cash on a cellphone. And...

HTC Desire HD mini review (Three network)


You might think it's a strange time to be considering an HTC Desire HD for your next phone. The Sensation, HTC's next big thing, is looming on the horizon. And newer, shinier phones ...

The HTC Desire HD is available now for free from Three UK on a £30 per month contract with a 1GB data allowance, as well as the £35 per month "One Plan", which includes "all-you-can-eat" data.

Mini Size, Maxi Features: The HTC HD Mini Reviewed


Not too long ago, HTC introduced the HD2, which featured just about everything a Windows Mobile smartphone buyer could ask for. But it also had a couple of characteristics, namely comparatively large size and heavy weight, that didn't thrill some...

Good performance ; Small and light - fits nicely in your hand and your pocket ; Capacitive touchscreen is responsive with fluid scrolling ; Most thoroughly "touch enabled" WM phone yet

Capacitive buttons on front panel too easy to hit by accident ; Back cover difficult to remove ; Doesn't support 3G for AT&T

HTC HD Mini Review


High end smartphones are all the rage these days, and high premium devices are at the center point of it. And what other company would know better about premium mobile experiences than the one which claims that We make expensive phones.

HTC HD Mini Review


The HTC HD Mini is a very decent device that has a few fundamental flaws preventing it from being classified as a usable phone, which we feel is of utmost important for any handset. The price is also on the higher side, which sadly means, we cannot...

Compact and well built, Crisp screen, Sense UI is very functional, Good all round performance

Over priced, Windows Mobile 6.5 is pretty archaic, Onscreen QWERTY is a joke
