HTC Shadow Review: T-mobile’s gone to the dark side, and I love it

 

The HTC Shadow is a new Windows Mobile 6 based smart phone for T-mobile service. It has a lot of potential and after spending some time with it, I really appreciate the amount of work that HTC puts into its phones.

HTC Shadow

 

If you're looking for a smartphone in a sleek disguise, Shadow is an interesting choice. Though it runs Windows Mobile, it's really more like a souped-up messaging phone than a smartphone. The custom UI is a great touch.

Shadow is a sleek slider with a custom interface and jog dial that make it easier to use than the average Windows Mobile smartphone. The SureType keypad fits a QWERTY layout into the space of a regular numerical keypad but has larger buttons than the...

Not everyone will like Shadow's keypad. Wider than most slider phones. Less powerful than many smartphones. No touchscreen. EDGE is slow for Web browsing

T-Mobile Shadow Cell Phone Review

 

The T-Mobile Shadow is a smart phone equipped with Windows Mobile Standard. This handsome handset features a 2.4-inch display which, while not iPhone-proportioned, is larger than most. Sliding the phone open showcases its SureType keyboard. SureType is...

T-Mobile Shadow Cell Phone Review - Manufacturer - Reviews - WirelessInfo.com - Cell Phone Reviews and Wireless Plan Ratings

 

The T-Mobile Shadow is the latest smart phone from T-Mobile. Running the non-touchscreen version of Windows Mobile the Shadow is an attractive device with a custom home screen that makes accessing various functions easier than on most Windows Mobile...

We found a lot to like about the Shadow, from its small size, good looks and very usable SureType keyboard. We also found the custom home screen on the Shadow put a huge amount of the phone's functionality in easy reach, something that's very helpful...

The Shadow didn't perform well on our audio tests. In terms of received frequencies, or the voice of an incoming caller, the Shadow overemphasizes virtually everything, though it features sporadic peaks. Voices sound tinny in general, though the effect...

Nice for a Cell Phone

 

If you are wanting a nice stylish phone with limited, but lots of features it works really nice due to windows mobile, but if you are thinking it will replace a pda I would go for a different phone. The main thing that makes the phone cool is the...

The design is nice for general use. It has nice speeds when it comes to using the applications. Allows for all the custom ringtones you want to make. The picture quality for the camera is very good compared to others I have seen and used (has a vary...

Its lack in a full keyboard/touchscreen kind of destroys the smart phone aspect, as it limits or makes some apps difficult to use. Battery life duh is not good. It is either difficult or imposible to create a new word or other microsoft document (you...

It's just OK

 

I don't know who the manufacturer is, a name I havn't heard of. When the contract is over, I am going back to the Sony or Samsung.

Very fancy. Very much looks like a MP3 player other than a cell phone. Many features.

I own this phone for about 5 months now. begined around 3 months, if you don't charge it every night, the battery won't survive next day, even you don't use it at all!

Extremely Nice

 

Working on uploading movies to this now, not being very cooperative but its a phone not a tv so w/e. I have 2x2gb Micro SD Kingston cards which work pefectly for it and its plenty of space. You can also save your powerpoints and word docs to this...

Very Solid, Looks and Feels Expensive. Has Windows Mobile which is sweet, can download alot of programs on it to watch tv and do just about everything, Comes with windows media player and internet explorer and alot of other stuff, Awesome for a smart...

Price obviously but you don't change an items rating for that. Strange Headphone jack its not a 3.5mm plug or anything its a usb, just makes it somewhat hard to find a nice pair of headphones. Not a huge fan of sliders but its awesome. NO PICS OF THIS...

The Shadow is an ok phone.....Not really worth the price!!!

 

The Tmobile Shodow is a pretty good phone, it does what it needs to but it could be a little better for what they are charging people for it. I've had it since August of this year and I have already had to replace it. The text message application is...
