HTC Radar review


Could the Titan's little brother bring Mango to the masses?

Great, quality build ; Loud speakerphone ; Contacts integration is top-notch ; Keyboard is fantastic ; Browser is great and text looks clear

Battery isn't removable and storage isn't expandable ; Voice search shown up now we have Siri ; Too many quirks with camera options for comfort ; Sharing videos is painful ; Very little skinning and customisation allowed other than Windows' offerings

The HTC Radar is the latest smartphone to run Windows Phone 7.5, following on from the HTC Titan. With a smooth unibody design, HD video recording and 5MP camera, will it be enough to make Windows Phone a success?

HTC Radar review


The HTC Radar is the sibling to HTC's mammoth Titan, and with Windows Phone Mango straight out of the box it clearly means business, but can it compete with its larger brother?

WP 7.5 with multi-tasking ; Bright and clear screen ; Social integration

Lack of apps ; Build design ; Camera

Although small on changes, Mango has helped make Windows Phone much better, that said the OS is chronically undersupported by apps and although HTC's Hub tries to help it's still incredibly noticeable and has you yearning for the same apps found on...

HTC Radar


Windows Phone 7 Mango is here and that means a selection of new smartphones to choose from. The new version of the OS is aimed at users who are either upgrading from the first batch of 2010 handsets, or moving over to the platform for the first time....

DLNA, crisp Super LCD screen, good design

Same processor as last year, no Dr Dre Beats Audio, no NFC, not much storage

The HTC Radar is designed for those that want to take advantage of the latest Mango features on a new phone from HTC without having to go for the massive HTC Titan. The Radar is a solid handset that delivers a good Windows Phone experience, but not an...

First Look: HTC Radar


HTC released five Windows Phone 7 powered smartphones in 2010, but for 2011 the tactic is going to be different. That's the theory anyway and to kick off the Windows Phone 7 Mango update it's launching just two smartphones, the HTC Titan and the HTC...

Affordable, DLNA, HTC Hub, Mango

Small screen, Specs haven't really moved on from Trophy

HTC Radar


First Look: We take a closer look at the HTC Radar, the little brother to the mammoth Titan.

The rear of the phone is athree-tone effort we’re used to seeing on HTC's Android devices with a five megapixelcamera sitting between an LED flash and a speaker grille.

HTC Radar 4G (T-Mobile) review


In early September, HTC stopped by the CNET offices to show off its new Windows Phone devices, the HTC Titan and HTC Radar. Though the Titan was the better phone in terms of specs, it was the Radar that grabbed my attention, with its combination of a...

The HTC Radar 4G boasts a beautiful, high-quality design. Windows Phone Mango offers a smooth user experience and some great feature enhancements. The smartphone's 5-megapixel camera is fast and delivers great photos; a front-facing camera also allows...

The Radar 4G doesn't offer expandable memory or a user-replaceable battery. Call quality could be better.

The combination of a beautiful design, Windows Phone, and an affordable price tag makes the HTC Radar 4G a great smartphone for first-time buyers and those who don't need all the bells and whistles.

HTC Radar C110E


If HTC's Titan was too brutish for you, but you still like the idea of Windows Phone 7 handset, then the regular sized Radar might be more up your street.

Windows Phone 7.5 UI is slick and responsive ; Good battery life ; Excellent call quality

Video recording could be better ; Non-removable battery ; No microSD card slot

Overall, the HTC radar is an excellent mid-range smartphone. Sure, it has some issues, such as the lack of support for microSD cards. However, the phone looks stylish, feels very robust and is speedy too. In fact, the whole package feels very slick and...
