HTC Snap (Sprint)

 

The Snap gives corporate types a thin, fast handset that easily hooks into Microsoft's ecosystem, but it's not much of a standout otherwise.

Fast performance. Good voice quality. Slim.

Tired OS. No Wi-Fi. Lacks a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack.

HTC Snap (Sprint) review: HTC Snap (Sprint)

 

Sprint is keeping on with its busy summer of phone releases. In addition to the Palm Pre and upcoming RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 , the carrier was the first to offer the HTC Snap. Announced at CTIA 2009 , we were glad to see the sleek QWERTY device from...

The HTC Snap for Sprint offers robust e-mail support, including HTC's Inner Circle feature for prioritizing messages. The Windows Mobile smartphone also has EV-DO Rev. A support, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2-megapixel camera.

Sprint's version lacks Wi-Fi and dual-mode functionality. The smartphone has a plasticky feel, and the QWERTY keyboard is cramped.

The HTC Snap for Sprint offers snappy performance and good messaging features, but the smartphone's plastic build and lack of Wi-Fi don't justify the price.

Video Tour: HTC Snap

 

HTC's Snap hits the Sprint network with a svelte outline, full QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera and 3G on board. This is a case where smaller is better.

Review: Review of HTC's Snap smartphone for Sprint

 

The HTC Snap for Sprint is a Windows Mobile smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard and HTC's hot new Inner Circle email system. We give it a workout in this review, complete with video.

I have an HTC Snap through Sprint. HATE IT. HTC sent an update a few weeks back that "broke" the ringer. I use my phone for my business, a phone that doesn't ring is unacceptable. HTC's fix will be out "in a few weeks." Even though I have insurance and...

At the top of list of improvements is Inner Circle, which quickly hides your less important emails, and shows you just the ones from people you consider most important -- whether that's your boss or your spouse is up to you
