HTC Trophy

 

The HTC Trophy is an easy-to-use and pocket-friendly smartphone for shoppers on a budget.

For a $99 smartphone, the HTC Trophy is a good buy. It's $50 less expensive than the Droid Incredible 2, and we like its 5-MP camera, attractive interface, and solid build. You don't get a dual-core processor or multitasking (yet), but those looking...

HTC Trophy (Verizon Wireless)

 

It's been a long time coming, but Verizon finally has its first Windows Phone device in the HTC Trophy. Available now for $149.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate, the Trophy has actually been shipping in international markets...

The HTC Trophy features a compact design and world roaming capabilities. Windows Phone offers an easy-to-use interface, as well as good integration with Zune and Office

Camera quality is disappointing. Battery life could be better

The HTC Trophy isn't Verizon's most powerful or advanced smartphone, but if you don't need all the bells and whistles, the Windows Phone offers great ease of use and good integration of features in a sleek package.

HTC Trophy

 

The HTC Trophy ($150 with a new two-year contract) is the first Windows Phone 7 device on Verizon, and it does a pretty good job of showing off what the platform is all about. The Trophy is great for handling multimedia, but the phone feels dated next...

Good multimedia capabilities ; Responsive touchscreen

Network speeds are inconsistent ; Hardware is a bit dated

The HTC Trophy is a solid alternative for anyone who doesn't want an iPhone or Android device.

HTC Trophy (unlocked)

 

The HTC Trophy features a slim design and sharp display. The smartphone offers good call quality and some nice extras, including HTC Hub.

Camera quality isn't the best. The smartphone doesn't support North American 3G bands.

Designed for the international markets, the HTC Trophy is a well-designed and solid-performing Windows smartphone, but unless you're looking for an unlocked phone, there are better, more affordable options here in the States.

HTC Trophy (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Trophy runs on Verizon's EVDO Rev A 3G network; it also has Wi-Fi. That means it connects to the Internet at speeds of around 1Mbps, considerably slower than Verizon's new 4G phones. I bashed the Droid X2 for not having 4G, but it purports to be a...

Easy to use. Feels solid. Good voice performance

Poor camera. Battery life could be better

The HTC Trophy, Verizon's first Windows Phone 7, isn't a standout, but it will satisfy those who find Android's interface too complex.

HTC Trophy Review

 

Last of the major domestic players to get into the game with Windows Phone 7, Verizon Wireless can now offer their customers the new experience in Microsoft's platform with the HTC Trophy. Considering that this is Verizon's WP7 launch handset, let's...

HTC Trophy Review: A Windows Phone for Verizon

 

The HTC Trophy is available now at a price of $150 with a two-year contract. The phone goes for $450 unsubsidized

Good call quality ; Xbox Live games ; Excells at graphically-intensive games

No Adobe Flash support

Verizon and Microsoft may have taken their sweet time getting the Windows Phone 7 platform to Big Red customers, but people should be glad that the wait is over

Review: HTC Trophy

 

While Windows Phone 7 devices launched around the world late last year, no CDMA devices were included. In the US, that meant no Windows Phone 7 on either

HTC’s Trophy is one of the best Windows Phone 7 devices we’ve used to date. It’s definitely a device we would enjoy carrying around day to day hardware wise. Unfortunately, Windows Phone 7 is still lackluster when it comes to features and apps compared...

Review: HTC Trophy (Verizon) Windows Phone 7 review

 

The HTC Trophy is the first Windows Phone 7 handset to grace the network of Verizon Wireless, and it is based on the HTC 7 Trophy that was released last fall. Dan tests it out for us in this brief review.

HTC Trophy

 

The HTC Trophy is not the best Windows Phone 7 on the market, but it's a great starter phone – reliable, compact and sturdy. It doesn't go very far beyond the minimum requirements of the Windows Phone 7 operating system, but it goes far enough for a...

Though small, the screen is sharp and pixel-dense. It is the only Windows Phone for Verizon customers

The phone ships with Windows Phone 7, so you will miss all the enhancements of 7.5 Mango. It also lacks a front-facing camera for video chat

Although Verizon customers might envy the higher-powered Windows Phones available through other carriers, the HTC Trophy is still a decent purchase if you are looking for utility above all else.
