HTC Radar, Windows Phone Mango smartphone review


HTC's Radar brings us our first taste of Windows Phone 7.5, aka Mango. Although it has made its debut just a little while after Samsung's Omnia W, claiming second place in the WP7 Mango handset category in India, it does seem to have what it takes to...

Microsoft is fully committed to improving its Windows Phone platform, which gives us faith that regular updates will bring a host of improvements to what is already a solid, feature-rich OS. More importantly, Windows Phone feels refreshing and exciting...

HTC Radar 4G review


The HTC Radar 4G is T-Mobile's first Windows Phone device to debut with Mango and the carrier's first one with HSPA+. More importantly, it's also the only Windows Phone T-Mobile is currently selling and seemingly the only smartphone in its library that...

Solid build ; Stand-out look ; Bright screen

So-so call quality ; Windows Phone 7.5 still lacks a good ecosystem

T-Mobile's latest Windows Phone handset has an eye-catching chassis and HSPA+ connectivity

HTC Radar review: Mango on the radar


The HTC Radar is the smaller, less expensive, less powerful and - overall - less exaggerated version of the Titan. Now, turn that around and the Radar will be the sensible, down-to-earth and friendlier phone of the two. It will be up to users to...

3.8" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Dual-band 3G with HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) and HSUPA (2Mbps) ; Windows Phone 7 operating system ; 1GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Snapdragon...

Non-expandable storage ; No mass storage ; Zune-only file management and sync ; No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser ; No native video calls ; No DivX/XviD video support (automatic transcoding provided by Zune) ; Non-user-accessible battery

So, users of the HTC 7 Trophy can look at the Radar in disbelief all they want. Yes, it’s the same phone they’ve been having for a year now. The Radar won’t stare back at them. Although, it’s got a few things to show: unibody, wireless hotspot...

HTC Radar 4G


Comfortable to hold ; Great design ; Good camera ; Windows Phone 7.5 rocks

So-so battery life ; No microSD slot ; No removable battery ; Year-old specs

The HTC Radar is comfortable to hold, looks great, and has a solid camera for its class. We like it.

HTC Radar 4G (T-Mobile) Review


T-Mobile has a very good selection of smartphones for less than $100, so the fact that the HTC Radar 4G belongs on your radar tells you how far Windows Phone has come in the last year. The dual-core-powered LG G2x is the better choice for Android fans,...

Sturdy, elegant design, Bright display, Easy-to-use interface, Affordable, Good battery life

Somewhat sluggish data speeds, Not the best camera in this price range, Slower CPU than Samsung Focus Flash

HTC Radar 4G Review: Stylish and Affordable Windows Phone


The HTC Radar 4G ($100 with a new two-year contract from T-Mobile; price as of November 9, 2011) isn't a big leap forward for the Windows Phone 7 platform. The Radar 4G does ship with the latest software version, Mango, and it supports T-Mobile's HSPA+...

Stylish, all-white aluminum design ; Windows Phone Mango is clean and easy to use ; Crisp display

Limited storage ; Nonremovable battery

With a chic yet solid design, steady performance, and an easy-to-use interface, the HTC Radar is an excellent Windows Phone.

HTC Radar 4G ( T-Mobile)


In early September, HTC stopped by the CNET offices to show off its new Windows Phone devices, the HTC Titan and HTC Radar. Though the Titan was the better phone in terms of specs, it was the Radar that grabbed my attention, with its combination of a...

The HTC Radar 4G boasts a beautiful, high-quality design. Windows Phone Mango offers a smooth user experience and some great feature enhancements. The smartphone's 5-megapixel camera is fast and delivers great photos; a front-facing camera also allows...

The Radar 4G doesn't offer expandable memory or a user-replaceable battery. Call quality could be better.

The combination of a beautiful design, Windows Phone, and an affordable price tag makes the HTC Radar 4G a great smartphone for first-time buyers and those who don't need all the bells and whistles.

HTC Radar review


HTC Radar 4G gets November 2nd launch date on T-Mobile with $100 price tagMango rollout going smoothly, now available to half of all

Beautiful display ; Top-notch build ; HD camcorder with auto-focus

Sealed battery (the HTC Titan's is removable) ; Limited storage ; Hit-or-miss software customization

If you're undeterred by the Radar's few limitations, it's easily among the most satisfying Windows Phone devices on the market today.

HTC Titan and HTC Radar hands-on: HTC media event


HTC's pre-IFA event was (as suspected) all about Windows Phone 7 Mango. HTC had a lot to say about the new version of the OS and what they've added to it, but also showcased two new phones - the 4.7" monster called HTC Titan and the smaller HTC Radar.

HTC Radar 4G (T-Mobile)


Otherwise, it's standard fare for a Windows Phone device: You get comprehensive Microsoft Exchange and Outlook sync, a Microsoft Office-compatible document editor, and a solid WebKit browser. TeleNav GPS Navigator is also on board for voice-enabled,...

Feels well-crafted. Bright screen. Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) OS is smooth as silk

Not really 4G. Mediocre reception. No Wi-Fi calling like with other T-Mobile smartphones

The HTC Radar 4G is a solid Windows Phone 7 device that could easily win some converts over from an Android or iOS handset.
