HTC S710


The HTC S710 has a similar orientation to the Wing. But unlike all the others, the S710 skips the touch screen and adds a second, front-panel numeric keypad. With this configuration, the entire handset ends up being much smaller—about the size of a...

Striking sliding design. Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Very bright screen. Includes built-in Wi-Fi

No 3G. Slow CPU. Not the best voice quality

HTC scores a design hit with its diminutive, dual-keyboard Windows Mobile 6 handset, but its voice quality and sluggish processor keep it from achieving greatness.

HTC S710 Vox Review


If you don't mind the slow CPU sometimes and the lack of fast 3G internet connection, then S710 is the Windows Mobile Standard smartphone for you. In its compact size and handy design, it combines nice display, handy keyboard and full QWERTY for the...

The HTC S710's dual keyboards and small form factor make it unique among smartphones.

Review: HTC S710


The HTC S710 is one of the first shipping Windows Mobile 6 Standard devices, and the first non-touchscreen Windows Mobile handset with a slide out QWERTY keyboard. We did some extensive testing on the enticing device, and present to you our in-depth...

Like any Windows Mobile device, and indeed any smartphone should have, the HTC S710 has great support for contact management. A vast array of data can be stored in each contact - anything that can be stored in Outlook on a PC. In addition to regular...

Review: HTC S710 (Vox)


Way back when I first unboxed the HTC S710 (aka the HTC Vox), a reader commented that my voice sounded giddy. Indeed, I was giddy. The s710 was (and

Candy Bar form-factor (if you like that), Windows Mobile 6, Audio Manager for music, Great Camera

Keyboard, Battery life only decent, not great as advertised, EDGE only

What you think of the S710 comes down to a matter of context. If your context is a text-heavy email phone, the keyboard just isn't going to be satisfying to long-time smartphone users. But if you put it in the context of candybar smartphones, the S710...

The HTC S710 (Vox) Quick Review


As a person who is constantly looking for the next best device for business use, it amazes me that no one came up with this design before HTC did. A quote straight from PhoneArena.Com says it all:  The HTC S710 is the most compact messaging phone with...

HTC does only one thing, they produce cellular devices, and luckily for the HTC 710 they do that one thing extremely well. The HTC 710 not only provides its users with all the features of the newly released Windows Mobile 6.0, it does so in a design...

HTC VOX S710 with WM6 Standard


It's a crazy world out there. Our Smartphones are suddently called "Standard", and keyboards are sliding open from all parts of our devices

Unique form factor with QWERTY slide-out ; Sleek design ; Windows Mobile 6 Standard ; Excellent number pad ; Big, bright screen ; Good camera

No 3G ; Painfully slow screen rotation ; QWERTY keys are small ; The front is a fingerprint magnet ; Proprietary audio port ; Inferior speakerphone

I was excited to write this review. The Vox S710 is the kind of device that gets attention wherever it goes. My favorite is showing the device to a friend, and after they're slightly impressed by the nice screen and chrome surrounding - BAM! - I slide...

HTC S710


Brilliant, as the British say: take the side-sliding QWERTY keyboard design from popular HTC-made Pocket PC phones such as the Cingular 8525, T-Mobile MDA and Verizon XV6700 and use it on an MS Smartphone. When we first saw the HTC Vox (that's...

If the HTC S710 had 3G, our star rating would have been higher.
