I have been using this phone for about six weeks by now. Before I got the HTC Surround I used Apple's iPhone 3GS, and HTC Touch Pro. I will review not just the phone, because I think the OS is also very important when talking about HTC Surround.

Dimensions and Characteristics
I think the screen size is the same of iPhone's 3G or 4G. Talking about image quality, I can't find any differences between them, of course there might be some technical differences but I am not able to notice them with my eyes :).
The phone size is very similar to the iPhone; HTC Surround is a little bigger because of the speaker, but I would say there is no size difference. The built in camera is good and you have a good flash light also which is nice to have when taking pictures in dark ambience.

User Interface
Microsoft has done a great job redesigning the screens in WP7 with "Metro". You will see that the icons (which are called tiles) in the main screen are "alive" and are not static icons like the iPhone. The tiles gives you information about your contacts (updates from Windows Live, Facebook, My Space, Messenger), some applications are using live tiles like Weather channel, so you don't have to enter the app or contacts to see the information. I think the "live tiles" will be very popular in the near future, because they can give you the information you need without wasting any time opening the application unless you need more info from it. Also live tiles make the main screen more attractive... I like them.

Zune vs. iTunes
After using iTunes for several years, I just realized that if you don't have an Apple's computer, then you will have some troubles using iTunes (at least that's my experience). I have to say that I like Zune much more than I like iTunes.

The phone is quick and extremely responsive. Reception is clean and clear, the video is sharp and smooth, Setup was a breeze and once I connected to my network surfing was enjoyable, web pages were quick and smooth. I would recommend the phone to all my friends. I have two problems:

i. The company advertise the phone as UNLOCKED and it was not.
2. The battery life with all the features turned on can be less than a day.

The new windows interface takes some getting use to but it is very quick and stable. It has not crashed as yet and everything works.

A great phone

The phone is auto restarting constantly. The battery compartment had some scratches. Is really new? I apply all updates and still the same, it restarts every time you try to do an operation.

SELLER IS LYING ABOUT WARRANTY. PHONES ARE SOLD PAST WARRANTY. You will not be able to get any help from the manufacturer, and they will charge you at least $40 just to take a look if anything should go wrong. Many comments show the phone consistently has problems 3-6 months past purchase.

I ordered this phone February of 2012. It initially functioned fine, though the cosmetics (plastics on the surface, colored designs &c) came off within a few weeks. I had trouble with the charger within a month of ordering - it did not fit snugly into the phone but buying another USB chrarger solved the problem.

After 3 months, the phone has started to reboot constantly and always reverts to "earlier" states - losing recent messages, pictures &c. It seems like the storage card (microSD inside the phone, inaccessible without voiding warranty) may have gotten loose. Some searching told me this seems to be a common problem with HTC Windows 7 phones. My phone is currently bricked with a "STORAGE CARD NOT WORKING" error message.

I called HTC and they told me the phone's warranty expired in November 2011, months before I purchased it and that I have no recourse except to send it in for out of warranty evaluation. Once they look at it, they will quote me a price, usually between $100-150, and if i decide against it, I will be charged $40 for my troubles.

I feel silly having bought this phone despite numerous reviews that have cited this exact problem. Heed these warnings!

My 5 stars are for the HTC 7 Surround phone itself; I'll explain. My cousin has this phone, she bought it about a year ago and she loves it. I played with it from time to time and found it easy to use and very stable (unlike my Android phone), and the slideup speakers to be cool. It eventually inspired me to buy an HTC Radar 4G and switch to T-Mobile as my carrier. I love WinPhone 7.5, so much so that I wanted to become a developer.

Which led me to purchase this "unlocked" phone, to use as a development phone. I purchased it from OEM Planet (aka Young Kimbrogh) fulfilled by Amazon.com. Unfortunately the phone never worked. It would turn on, show the HTC logo, and then just vibrate and reboot itself. I even purchased a genuine AT&T SIM card and activated the SIM card (against my wishes... as I'd had some real bad experience with AT&T before!) but it didn't make no difference, the phone simply refused to go beyond the logo screen!

Guys... If anyone has bought an unlocked Surround that works, please let me know where you bought it from! Thanks.
