HTC's Smart is not the smartest smart phone out there.

HTC Smart review: First grader

 

Being a veteran in the smartphone market is huge advantage when you decide to come up with something new. After so many Windows Mobile and Android devices, HTC surprised us with a completely different product – HTC Smart. It's a semi-smartphone...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps ; Brew Mobile software platform with HTC Sense UI and social networking integration ; 2.8" resistive touchscreen of QVGA resolution ; 300 MHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 256 MB ROM ; 3.15 megapixel...

No Wi-Fi connectivity ; QVGA resolution doesn't do Sense UI graphics justice ; Screen has poor sunlight legibility ; No video-call camera ; No voice dialing ; Camera lacks auto focus, records QVGA@15fps video only ; Only few applications preinstalled...

Throwing another mobile OS on the market is hardly the right move since the smartphone arena is already over-crowded. But it seems HTC Smart is HTC's way of making a feature phone. The Linux-based Brew Mobile platform used for the HTC Smart hardly...

With a wealth of high-end smartphones on the market, and eye-catching alternatives such as the fourth-generation iPhone HD and WiMAX-toting HTC EVO 4G just around the corner, it's easy to forget that the real sales movement happens down at the more...

Our concern is that HTC Smart owners would soon tire of the limitations of Brew MP and wish they’d picked an entry-level Android device instead, perhaps even HTC’s own Wildfire. Yes, that would mean a little more initial outlay (or a slightly higher...

The HTC Smart is one of the first BREW OS based phones by HTC. It is a cheap feature phone which competes with the lowest end Android smartphones.

If you are looking for a value-for-money yet feature-rich phone, HTC Smart is for you, with a decent build quality, Bluetooth, 3G, intuitive Sense UI, unified inbox and native social networking, and thread-type messaging.

good touchscreen, good battery life

no WiFi connectivity, 256k colour screen

Looking for an entry-level HTC smartphone? Aptly named the HTC Smart, the mobile device runs on a simple, easy-to-use Brew Mobile Platform OS that's coupled with the popular HTC Sense UI, on a 2.8?inch TFT?LCD touch?sensitive screen with QVGA resolution.

The operating environment on the HTC Smart is called "HTC Sense", and it is built on top of the new Qualcomm BREW MP operating system. BREW is more common in US devices than European ones, but has featured on INQ handsets like the INQ1.
