HTC Legend - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC Legend offers a user experience that is an absolute joy. From set-up to everyday use, it is intuitive, fun and engaging, making the Legend a serious

HTC Legend review

 

Taking Android to the next level - Apple should be scared

Excellent UI ; Nice battery input mechanism ; Speedy browser ; Responsive keyboard ; Stellar design

Average battery life ; Friendstream and Peep slow to update

After the success of the HTC Hero, the Taiwanese firm is back again with the first of its duo of Android 2.1 phones, the HTC Legend.

HTC Legend review

 

Like its predecessor, the HTC Legend smartphone has a very distinctive design. This time it's thanks to the aluminium, unibody casing with a brushed finish. Like Apple's MacBook Pro, the HTC Legend's unibody casing is carved from a single block of...

The HTC Legend may lack the extra-large screen of the flagship HTC Desire, but the unibody aluminium casing is a superb piece of industrial design. The Legend is an excellent smartphone and a solid improvement over its predecessor.

HTC Legend review

 

The HTC Legend, as the name might suggest, is a direct successor to the company's popular Hero, which formerly held the crown of Best Android Phone - that is, before Google brought out its own Nexus One. The Legend looks remarkably similar to the Hero...

Fantastic build quality, good battery life, a vibrant display, and superbly functional software make the Legend the best value smartphone currently available.

HTC Legend

 

HTC takes the Android smartphone to new heights with highlights such as a 3.2in AMOLED display and aluminium chassis.

Exceptional viewing screen ; Excellent web browser ; Powerful LED flash

Fiddly to remove microSD card ; Narrow screen ; Wobbly video footage

The HTC Legend is undoubtedly our favourite Android phone so far. Its screen looks amazing and is responsive, it's packed with features, and of course that aluminium chassis is something to behold. So if you're a fan of Android already and you're...

HTC Legend Mobile Phone

 

The HTC Legend mobile phone was machined from a single block of aluminium and thus renders a solid and high-grade impression. A characteristic product feature is the phone's lower edge, which is angled slightly inward and distinguished by a contrast in...

HTC Legend – Mini Review

 

The Legend is similar in both size and shape to the HTC Hero but this times there's an “alloy unibody” making it very solid with a slide-in battery. The “chin” is still there but, instead of the trackball, there's now an “optical trackpad” on the chin....
