Typing on screen is not too hard, it' nice, so i'm using the phisical keyboard only when i'm in a taxi or on a train, so it's not absolutely necessary for me, and would consider a cheaper phone without the keyboard and extra thickness. The resolution 800x480 is nice and the screen size is very good, i don't need extra size screen, or would consider directly one galaxy tab if size matters. I also bought an ipod touch 4th generation. At home me and my wife and daughter are using it a lot, and we can compare some differences between the android and the lighter apple. We can download apps from both markets for example. On the Htc i can watch any kind of videos, surf on flash based sites, and don't need to sinc anything with itunes. Htc share easily the 3G connection to the ipod when we need. On the ipod touch i see a slightly better reading experience with the little higher screen resolution (960x640). Photos and videos are great on both, i'm a photographer and this is important for me.
Last advise, those phones will be nothing in a few years, both because the new tecnologies, and the hardware damage using it everywhere everyday. So if you are on a budget i would recomend a cheaper mid-line phone instead of the top ones.
When I get a new phone I do a ton of research first. I read and watch reviews I look up the specs read articles and comparisons and this then that.
I came across this phone which was released in 2010. (I ordered this phone in 2012 by the way). I was drawn to it due to it's clean appearance, and it's keyboard. I INSIST ON HAVING A FULL QWERTY KEYBOARD ON MY MOBILE DEVICE.
After viewing some comparisons to other phones like the iphone 4 and the sidekick 4g I decided to try it out as i could get one unlocked for around 200$ which is such a value.
It arrived in the mail soon and I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED IN THE SLIGHTEST.
-FIRST of all the phone is aesthetically LOVELY.
- It has a clean metallic look to it. the front has a very attractive metal border with that scratchy-metal texture that looks GREAT and a trackpad with a chrome-y finish
- the screen is just the right size about as big as it can be for the the size of the phone.
-It's a bit thick because of the QWERTYboard but I am ok with that and it looks good when the keyboard is slid out or put away.
-The back of it has a metal battery cover with that scratchy texture to it and it looks GREAT. It is removed by sliding a small switch; not too difficult to remove yet stays in place unlike many other phones.
-The phone has some weight to it and feels sturdy. I have not dropped it yet and that is because I have trained my mind to prevent me from dropping phones over the years. I did get a nice-looking snap on cover for it and a screen protector just in case.
-The keyboard is attached to the phone with what HTC calls a "Z-hinge".Read more ›
Beautiful screen quality.
Decent camera/video. Not spectacular, but it's a PHONE. As a camera/videocam, it is functional and useful. It's fine.
LOVE the keyboard. Oh yeah.
User interface and the look-and-feel of the OS is very nice.
Lovely brushed aluminum case makes it feel substantial in the hand and it looks super sexy.
1. When coming from New Zealand to the US and swapping my NZ sim card out for a US sim, it could NOT connect to my google accounts. And, it would periodically stop accepting text messages. I could send them fine, I could make and receive calls. Texts just went into the void. I had to do a full system reset, which meant I had to reload all my apps and account info. And I'll probably have to do it AGAIN whenever I travel between the two countries (every year) and swap sims. Research suggests this might be an HTC specific problem. Or it could be android. Anyway, something to look out for.
2. The light sensor that triggers the backlight on the menu and keyboard is flaky, so a lot of times it won't come on even in very low ambient light. From various discussion boards it seems this is a common problem.
Over all, if you want a full-featured, very smart, android phone, this is not a bad choice.
Too bad HTC doesn't produce full keyboard products anymore, I would take another one just like this but with today's performances without a blink.

HTC should put the track pad in their new phones, I now own an HTC ONE S and I do miss this feature. But still one of my best buys. Amazon did a great job also.Published on August 3, 2013 by gonzalopinto

Delivered in time, everything was in order except for the plug, which could not be used in a conventional US socket (fortunately, my MacBook Pro can properly feed the HTC battery).Published on February 6, 2012 by Iván
