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...

HTC Smart Review

 

There are some phones which are not that easy to categorize, and the HTC Smart is just one of them. Aiming to attract attention with the new Brew mobile platform and solid build quality, it is HTC's first foray into the feature phone universe ...

HTC Smart Review

 

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.

HTC Smart Review

 

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

HTC Smart - HardwareZone.com

 

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.

HTC Smart

 

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.

HTC Smart mobile phone

 

The budget-focussed HTC Smart borrows many design cues from the Android operating system, but has basic features and lacks a third-party application store

Compact and well built, HTC Sense UI, Brew OS is straightforward and user friendly, good battery life

Screen hard to see in sunlight and not as responsive as alternatives, no extensive customisation options, no third-party-app store, poor on-screen keyboard

The HTC Smart does what it promises, providing an inexpensive phone for the masses with some smart features, like Facebook and Twitter integration, and a user-friendly interface. However the lack of an app store and its poor on-screen keyboard limit...
