HTC Freestyle review: HTC Freestyle

 

Though HTC made its mark in the United States with an extensive line of high-end smartphones, the company is now trying to diversify. Just consider one of its latest handsets, the HTC Freestyle for AT&T. It looks like your standard Android phone, but...

The HTC Freestyle has a solid, user-friendly design with all the essential features you need for communication.

The HTC Freestyle lacks an accelerometer and Wi-Fi. The speakerphone is barely usable, and there are too many superfluous apps.

For the right user, the HTC Freestyle offers a beginner smartphone experience without the high price.

HTC Freestyle (AT&T)

 

There's no accelerometer, but the Menu key has a landscape shortcut button for the browser and SMS. You get on-screen QWERTY keyboards in both portrait and landscape modes. Typing was accurate and relatively quick, given the slightly cramped screen...

Surprisingly slick UI for a feature phone. Expansive, responsive touch screen. Svelte aluminum design

Mediocre camera. Evil bloatware. MicroSD card slot buried under the battery release mechanism

HTC rewrites the feature phone playbook with the Freestyle, a powerful multimedia device for AT&T with a beautiful user interface.

HTC Freestyle Review

 

For those of you who may like the look of a smartphone, and want something cool like a touchscreen, but don't really need a smartphone, there's a new option…the HTC Freestyle from AT&T. The Freestyle is the carrier's first device to use Qualcomm's new...

HTC Freestyle Review by Sydney

 

I approached this device with high hopes and HTC did not disappoint. All the way from the physical design of the phone right down to the notifications and customization features and everything in between, HTC gave this phone their all and it really...

Sense UI; excellent build quality; responsive capacitive touchscreen; best virtual keyboard on a featurephone

Slightly weak battery life; low-quality camera

HTC Freestyle Review

 

A review of the brand new HTC Freestyle from AT&T. Is it truly worth the two year contract price of $99? Read our full review of the HTC Freestyle to find out as we take a look at the phone's design and user interface in the first part of our review.

The HTC Freestyle is not a phone you should invest in, but it is a phone you will definitely feel like purchasing. It's one of those phones that despite its faults still has a wonderful and cool UI, "beware o savvy phone purchaser, let not thy self be...

Review: HTC Freestyle

 

The HTC Freestyle is the first phone to hit U.S. shores running Qualcomm's BREW MP operating system. Thanks to HTC's tinkering, however, the Freestyle behaves more like a Sense-equipped smartphone...most of the time.

HTC Freestyle (AT&T)

 

The Freestyle's slick HTC Sense UI layer makes this a feature phone like no other. AT&T has also refrained from its usual practice of requiring a data plan with the Freestyle, meaning that the Freestyle can serve a wide berth of customers with varying...

"It's pretty good, although there are some issues..."

 

I love AT&T. I do. I also really like the style of the HTC Freestyle, too. There are many pros and cons. First of all, it shuts itself on and off. ''Oops. A system error has occurred. Restarting.'' I've seen that warning many times. Which brings me to...

"This is the worst phone."

 

This is the worst phone. I regret this purchase every day. Most importantlly on the day that I was evacuating my city with my infant son due to a fire, I tried to call my husband to let him know that we were safe and I got the message, "oops, a system...
