HTC HD 7 review

 

The largest of the Windows Phone 7 clan promises a gargantuan movie experience

The HTC HD7 is a nice idea from the Taiwanese firm in terms of offering up something different to the rest of the Windows Phone 7 clan, and it apes the HTC Desire HD in terms of making the larger screen the best feature.

HTC HD7

 

Touted by many as the flagship of the Windows Phone 7 armada, HTC's 4.3-inch HD7 takes the prize for having the largest screen. But do more inches make it a better performer? Already we've seen those bemoaning its exclusive status with O2, but we're...

Massive screen gives you plenty of browsing space, Dolby Mobile and SRS do make a difference, autofocus in video, Windows Phone 7

Rattly volume key suggests build quality not quite as good as usual, battery life poor, viewing angles on screen not great

Overall the Windows Phone 7 experience on the HD7 is presenting on the large scale, which fits it perfectly. Windows Phone 7, although in its infancy, does offer a compelling and competitive experience and we find ourselves waiting expectantly for a...

HTC HD7 review

 

Windows Phone 7 goes gargantuan - movie-watching the Microsoft way

Large screen is great for movies ; Stereo speakers ; Slick interface ; Kickstand for easy use ; Sound enhancement genuinely works

No Flash on internet browser ; Windows Phone 7 still lacking some features ; Some might find the screen too large ; Lock button is hard to hit ; HTC Hub doesn't offer a lot

The HTC HD7 is by far the biggest of them, with a Desire HD- and HD2-matching 4.3-inch screen atop the near-identical hardware specs of its other WP7 brethren.

HTC HD7

 

With its 1GHz processor, huge screen and 16GB of memory, the HD7 looks like a great multimedia device, but how does it stack up against the competition?

Feels responsive to use, Good looking design, Easy to use OS, Integrated kickstand

Screen isn’t as good as it should be, Short battery life

HTC HD7 review

 

Powered by a newly minted Windows Phone 7 OS, the flagship HTC HD7 is here to prove Microsoft can be a contender in the smartphone skirmish

The pick of the first wave of WP7 handsets, the HD7 is a worthy champion of Microsoft’s new intuitive OS

This slick Windows Phone 7 has a great range of features and one of the best touch-screen displays on the market

HTC HD7

 

With an operating system that promises so much, it's shame that HTC's HD7 is let down by markedly lacklustre performance

Fantastic styling and finish ; refreshing user interface ; built-in stereo speakers

O2 exclusive ; sounds weak ; average video ; no Flash support ; no memory expansion
