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...

Solid build ; Stand-out look ; Bright screen

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

A strong form factor that's weighed down by Windows Phone 7.5's shortcomings

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 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) 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 (T-Mobile) review: 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 4G (T-Mobile)

 

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

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.

Camera and Conclusions The 5-megapixel auto-focus camera comes with an F2.2 lens and LED flash. Test photos were about average, with good light balance and color accuracy both indoors and outside, but not as much detail as I expected given this level...

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 Review

 

After a year of checking out Windows Phone devices, we're about to embark on a new journey as Mango flavored smartphones are finally coming to market. The HTC Radar 4G is coming to T-Mobile on November 2nd for the two-year contract price of $100....

HTC Radar Review

 

Windows Phone 7 kicked things off to a mixed start. Despite critical acclaim, Microsoft, hardware manufacturers and vendors were under-whelmed by its lack of consumer uptake. So while the platform has definitely fared better than, say, WebOS, it's...
