HTC Touch Cruise (unlocked) review:

 

Navigation capabilities on smartphones are becoming an increasingly popular feature, and it's almost gotten to the point where a handset is scoffed at if it doesn't include GPS. Well, HTC is taking the concept to another level with its HTC Touch Cruise...

The HTC Touch Cruise offers great navigation and ships with U.S. maps. The HTC Footprints application provides a nice way to record highlights of your trip. The Windows Mobile smartphone also features 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.2-megapixel...

The screen isn't the sharpest, and it washes out in bright sunlight. It's also a bit small for in-car navigation. The onscreen keyboard is cramped, and expandable memory is limited when using maps.

The HTC Touch Cruise offers road warriors and travel lovers great navigation features in a compact smartphone; we just wish it had a better screen.

Touch Cruise

 

An unlocked brother to the HTC Touch series phones, the HTC Touch Cruise ($550, unlocked, as of 4/9/2009) has an eye-catching look and a beautifully designed touch interface. But like the other HTC phones we've tested, the Cruise suffers from sluggish...

Gorgeous touch interface Lightweight and slim design

Spotty call quality Performance sometimes sluggish

The HTC Cruise impresses with its gorgeous display and variety of multimedia features. But like other HTC Touch phones we've seen, the Cruise's touch interface gets is bogged down by Windows Mobile, which makes for a sometimes frustrating experience

HTC Touch Cruise review: Happy cruising

 

Pocket PCs have been keeping us busy these days. Just as we gave you LG KS20, it's time for our one-on-one with the HTC Touch Cruise. And hey, are those workhorses getting sexier or what. As one of our readers sharply observed, those devices just...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE ; 3G with HSDPA ; 400MHz Qualcomm processor ; 128MB of RAM ; 2.8" 65K color touchscreen TFT display with QVGA resolution ; Integrated Qualcomm GPS receiver ; TomTom satnav software pre-bundled, one free map included ; Wi-Fi...

No hardware keypad ; Inadequate video playback capabilities ; Paint starts to peel off very quickly ; Display image quality is a bit disappointing and is practically illegible under direct sunlight ; Photo processing issues

HTC Touch Cruise

 

The Cruise is our favourite of the current HTC line-up and compares well to most of the competition. HTC does a good job of making the touchscreen experience easy to use, however, it won't be for everyone.

Attractive looking handset, HSDPA and Wi-Fi, Excellent TouchFlo interface, Bundled navigation software and accessories

Average processing, Below average battery life, Full touchscreen input won't appeal to everyone

HTC Touch Cruise Review

 

HTC has wowed us recently with top of the line offerings such as the Diamond and Touch HD, and smartphones are penetrating the consumer market at impressive rates. The reality is that not everyone can afford these high-end devices though, and HTC has...

I Love It When We're Cruisin' Together - the HTC Touch Cruise Reviewed

 

Everywhere you look these days, it's "iPhone this" and "iPhone that". For better or worse, the iPhone is a genuine phenomenon and has set the direction for touch enabled phones to come. Windows Mobile 6.5 and 7 will bring a variety of finger friendly...

Offers lots of features for a "budget conscious" phone ; TouchFlo interface is one of the best efforts yet to make WM phones "touch friendly ; Bundled CoPilot Navigation software adds functionality and value

Battery life is merely adequate ; Button layout on front differs from the "standard ; Back cover feels a bit cheap

Overall a well-rounded device that suffers from only a few setbacks. Look past these however and you'll find the Touch Cruise intuitive to use and quite well stacked in terms of features. It's not too shabby on the performance front either.

Interface looks great and is intuitive to use, quick performer, good battery life, control wheel works well

Lacks a flash for its camera, body retains fingerprints

Review: HTC Touch Cruise

 

Even though HTC's new TouchFLO 3D devices are starting to ship, its still worth looking at devices like Touch Cruise, with its AF camera, HSDPA data, and built-in GPS. Our UK man, Russell, puts the phone through its paces for us in this in-depth review.

Profiles on this device were almost non-existent, instead offering only normal, silent, and vibrate options. These options are easily accessed from the 'Today' screen, from the ringer menu on the right of the display or via the volume control. There...
