AT&T HTC Pure review


We review the HTC Pure, AT&T's first Windows Mobile 6.5-powered smartphone

Compact, feature-packed hardware

Stale, outdated software

The HTC Pure should almost certainly be passed on unless Windows Mobile is a requirement, for whatever reason. Another OS might have made the Pure a contender in the mid-range smartphone market but as it stands, there are too many terrific alternatives...

HTC Pure with Windows Mobile 6.5 Review


Today AT&T announced the HTC Pure with Windows Mobile 6.5 and we had the chance to get our hands on [...]

Windows Mobile 6.5′s new user interface is way better than before and the HTC Pure is a stylish and overall efficient device, except for typing. Just like the iPhone, this smartphone is better suited for people who mainly browse the Internet, snap...

HTC Pure (AT&T)


The TouchFLO 3D-enhanced HTC Pure improves Windows Mobile 6.5's user-friendliness.

Sharp looks. Stunning LCD display. Great Web browser. Good voice quality.

Squished control keys and on-screen keyboards. Poor speakerphone. Horrendous dongle required for headphone use.

Camera and Conclusions The 5-megapixel auto-focus camera lacks an LED flash and a shortcut button, so you need to scroll to the camera icon and snap pictures with the touch screen. Widescreen photos looked balanced but suffered from low-shutter-speed...

HTC Pure


What's in a name? A few months ago, this smartphone was known as the HTC Touch Diamond 2. Now, it's called the HTC Pure ($150 with a two-year contract from AT&T). Rebranding aside, the handset improves significantly on its predecessor, the Touch...

Svelte and attractive design ; Inexpensive

User interface can be slow ; No 3.5mm headphone jack

The head-turning HTC Pure is touch-friendly and inexpensive, but its lack of a headphone jack and its drab multimedia features are disappointing.

HTC Pure (AT&T) review


The HTC Touch Pro2 has been making the rounds to all the major carriers with much fanfare, yet its keyboard-lacking sibling, the HTC Touch Diamond2 , has thus-far stayed hidden in the shadows, which is a shame since we loved the unlocked model when we...

The HTC Pure for AT&T ships with Windows Mobile 6.5, which brings an easier-to-use interface, an improved browser, and new services. The compact smartphone also offers full wireless options and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Pure lacks a standard 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. Touch screen is resistive instead of capacitive. Windows Marketplace is a bit slow to load and Internet Explorer Mobile still falls behind the competition.

The HTC Pure offers AT&T customers an affordable touch-screen smartphone that showcases a more intuitive Windows Mobile operating system and strikes a nice balance between work and play. That said, those looking for a handset that excels in multimedia...

AT&T HTC Pure Windows Phone review


AT&T's first Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone, the HTC Pure, has some reasonable heritage; while the casing may look new, the guts of the handset are shared with HTC's Touch Diamond2. Back when we reviewed the Diamond2 in May, we described it as the best...

HTC Pure Review


With Verizon Wireless parading the HTC Imagio as one of the premier Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones, the HTC Pure has geared up to claim the same stake over on AT&T. We'll take a closer look to see if the HTC Pure has the stuff it takes to really...

HTC Pure Review


The HTC Pure is a candy bar smartphone offered by AT&T and features the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. The Pure seeks to retain most of what HTC has already laid down in the area of smartphones with a few tweaks here and there. This review will...

HTC Pure Review


Especially released for AT&T network operator, HTC Pure is the American version of HTC Touch Diamond2. The only technical difference between the two is the 3G network compatibility, HSDPA 850 / 1900 for Pure and HSDPA 900 / 2100 for Diamond2. So, if...

HTC Pure distinguishes through its rather low price and a few other gimmicks that make it a possible choice for those looking for a mid-budget smartphone. I would enlist here: elegant design, Wi-Fi and HSDPA connectivity, 5-megapixel camera, good music...

The major drawbacks of the smartphone are the frequent freezes, plus the numerous software bugs (Bluetooth not working correctly sometimes, Wi-Fi not always connecting, etc.). The small keys of the virtual QWERTY keyboard are a nightmare. Besides the...
