Hands-on with the HTC S730 Windows Mobile Smartphone

 

The HTC S730 is the Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone I've awaited. Equipped with UMTS/HSDPA and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR as well as its fast 400 MHz Qualcomm processor, it's the perfect device for those...

HTC S730 is a HSDPA/UMTS/Qudband PDA phone powered by an Qualcomm 7200, 400 Mhz processor and the new Windows Mobile 6 operating system. S730 features a 2.4-inch QVGA touchscreen display, an integrated 2.0 megapixel camera, a microSD memory card...

A little too chubby for a phone; QWERTY keyboard needs a redesign

However, I’m not too sure about the slide-out keyboard – it’s a nice idea but I think still needs some tweaking in design before it's truly usable.

A candy bar smartphone featuring HSDPA-connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the HTC S730's best feature is its comfortable slide out keyboard and excell...

Build quality, slide out QWERTY keyboard, controls, Wi-Fi, HSDPA-capable, HTC home screen

No standard 3.5mm headphone jack, somewhat thick and chunky, mediocre camera

The S730's QWERTY keypad and controls combined with an excellent design make this a welcome addition to the smartphone market.

We rather liked its S710 predecessor, so can the S730 impress us just as much?

With that in mind, let's take a look at what this device has to offer.

HTC S730 review

 

Aside from 3G, this update to the S710 adds little improvement. In fact, the S730 is slightly heavier than its predecessor and delivers less battery life. Whether you go for the S730 will depend largely on how much you need 3G

3G connectivity with HSDPA ; Supports two-way video calling ; Slide-out Qwerty keyboard ; Accessible microSD card slot

Bulky and heavy for a smart phone ; Moderate battery life

Battery life is disappointing. From a full charge we got 5 hours 55 minutes of continuous music played from a microSD card with the screen forced to stay on. This is well over half an hour less than we achieved with the HTC S710

Even though the S730 is one of the few HTC products without a touchscreen, it is probably the first candy-bar style smartphone we've seen that has a slide-out full QWERTY keypad. Plus the S730 has excellent connectivity options.

Outlook Like the Dopod C500, the HTC S730 is the QWERTY device for the undecided. It's convenient to slide the keyboard out when the need arises and hides away neatly to assume the look of a traditional candy-bar phone.

The S730 is the latest incarnation of HTC's popular sliding-keyboard candy bar smartphone. We looked at the previous version (in Orange SPV E650 clothing) in our Smartphone Labs in issue 160 (web ID: 145113), and found it to be a superb phone, albeit...

HTC - S730

 

HTC's S730 updates an older device, the S710. It is a funny thing about hardware updates: when the original is groundbreaking, the update can sometimes appear a let-down. There is an analogy with bands who amaze ...

The HTC S730 does update the S710 in terms of features and capability, but it is not a smaller, neater or more pocket friendly device. When it comes to the next S series device, HTC needs to look at slimming the unit down as well as adding new features.

The HTC S730 is the natural progression from the earlier S710, but this time they have added the much sought after 3G option that was missing from the latter. But ...

The HTC S730 is a good smartphone but it's heavier and less appealing than its predecessor. We are also concerned about the memory leak problem we experienced during tests. It did not affect performance too much, but running multiple or memory...
