HTC Merge (U.S. Cellular)

 

The HTC Merge is a decent Android smartphone for U.S. Cellular, but its heft and stubborn slider could turn some away.

The HTC Merge has a SIM card slot for international roaming, a nice camera with HD video capture and playback, and some premium design touches

The QWERTY slider on the HTC Merge wasn't the easiest to use and we've experienced better keyboards. Call quality was sometimes disappointing on our roaming calls

HTC Merge (U.S. Cellular)

 

If you want to take the Merge abroad, you're going to have to roll your own service plan. Many people would consider that a plus: arranging for your own SIM card is almost always much cheaper than paying roaming rates. If you don't want to struggle...

True world phone. Excellent QWERTY keyboard. Quality feel all around

Heavy. Stubborn microSD card slot located underneath the battery cover

The Merge may weigh down your pants pocket a bit, but the phone's high-end design, excellent QWERTY keyboard, and good overall performance are compelling.

HTC Merge review

 

The White Whale of Android smartphones finally emerges on a handful of regional carriers There's something quite satifying about the HTC Merge on US Cellular. Maybe it's the sleek design. Maybe it's ...

We've said it a few times throughout this review: The HTC Merge really isn't top of the line anymore. And some would argue that even when it looked like it was going to launch in the fall of 2010, it already was slipping behind. And you know what?...

HTC Merge Review

 

Unveiled at CTIA 2011, the HTC Merge is HTC's latest addition to their smartphone line up that features a slide out physical QWERTY keyboard. Unlike other slide out keyboards that feature a spring loaded mechanism, the HTC Merge truly just slides a...

Overall the HTC Merge ranks in as a truly "Average" smartphone in today's market. If the HTC Merge had been released at least a year earlier, it would've looked much more impressive, but at a time where smartphones are pushing the limits of innovation...

"NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS"

 

I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS PHONE. IT HAS GIVEN ME NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS AND OF COURSE THEY STARTED RIGHT AFTER I COULD NOT JUST EXCHANGE THE PHONE SO NOW I AM STUCK WITH IT UNTIL TIME FOR AN UPGRADE. IT HAS COMPLETELY TURNED ME AWAY FROM ANDROIDS. I REFUSE...

DURABILTY AND SIZE ARE GREAT

CANNOT FIND CASES FOR THE PHONE. IT FREEZES ALL THE TIME. I EVENTUALLY HAD TO HAVE IT COMPLETELY RESET TO FACTORY SPECS BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT EVEN LOAD THE HOME SCREENS. I COULD NOT USE MY PHONE AT ALL.

"Fast. Big Screen."

 

Got this phone for only $99 thru US Celluar. It is some what different than the Tmobile My TouchQ I had. So it is taking me awhile to get use to the difference but so FAR I like it. So having a phone company that works now after months of flustration...

It's fast compared to what I have been putting up with... only 3g here where I live & I had a 4g but that was useless if your not in a Area that doesn't have 4g. It's a little heavy but that is because I chose a Keyboard.

The Text part of the phone. Not use to the words coming up to help me pick a word. So if I am not paying attention or in a hurry it puts STUPID words in that make my sentence make no sence. I need to find out how to make that go away.
