HTC S730 Windows Mobile Smartphone

 

We rather liked its S710 predecessor, so can the S730 impress us just as much?

HTC S730

 

The S730 is the latest incarnation of HTC's popular sliding-keyboard candy bar smartphone. We looked at the previous version (in Orange SPV E650 clothing) in our Smartphone Labs in issue 160 (web ID: 145113), and found it to be a superb phone, albeit...

HTC - S730

 

HTC's S730 updates an older device, the S710. It is a funny thing about hardware updates: when the original is groundbreaking, the update can sometimes appear a let-down. There is an analogy with bands who amaze ...

The HTC S730 does update the S710 in terms of features and capability, but it is not a smaller, neater or more pocket friendly device. When it comes to the next S series device, HTC needs to look at slimming the unit down as well as adding new features.

HTC S730 Review

 

The HTC S730 is the natural progression from the earlier S710, but this time they have added the much sought after 3G option that was missing from the latter. But ...

The HTC S730 is a good smartphone but it's heavier and less appealing than its predecessor. We are also concerned about the memory leak problem we experienced during tests. It did not affect performance too much, but running multiple or memory...

HTC S730 review

 

So the QWERTY candybar returns. INTRODUCTION This is another BIG device for HTC. Perhaps not to the same scale as the TyTN II or the Touch series ? but it?s got to be number 3 in line. It sounds too good to be true really ? a...

The keyboard size is fantastic, and for it to be in such a small chassis is great news for any market they try to sell the unit in to

Apologies for the slightly shorter review – it’s Christmas and I need to get drunk but the HTC S730 is definitely recommended!

A candy bar smartphone featuring HSDPA-connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the HTC S730's best feature is its comfortable slide out keyboard and excell...

Build quality, slide out QWERTY keyboard, controls, Wi-Fi, HSDPA-capable, HTC home screen

No standard 3.5mm headphone jack, somewhat thick and chunky, mediocre camera

The S730's QWERTY keypad and controls combined with an excellent design make this a welcome addition to the smartphone market.

HTC S730

 

Even though the S730 is one of the few HTC products without a touchscreen, it is probably the first candy-bar style smartphone we've seen that has a slide-out full QWERTY keypad. Plus the S730 has excellent connectivity options.

Outlook Like the Dopod C500, the HTC S730 is the QWERTY device for the undecided. It's convenient to slide the keyboard out when the need arises and hides away neatly to assume the look of a traditional candy-bar phone.
