HTC Touch Viva review

 

The original HTC Touch gets a sexy new look and an affordable price

Touch screen ; TouchFLO ; 2 megapixel camera ; Wi-Fi ; MicroSD slot

No 3G ; Small onboard memory ; Camera could be better

The budget Touch has some good points, but it's frustratingly under-specced

Has HTC thrown the baby out with the bath water on the cut down Touch Viva? Niall finds out.

HTC Touch Viva review

 

Personally I would not entertain the HTC Viva as my device of choice as it is too minimal and too boring for me to part with my cash. But if that is your thing then it is very capable and worth a look, especially if money is tight. The biggest problem...

HTC Touch Viva budget Windows Mobile smartphone

 

It's the cheapest Touch and it shows, but it's still got a few tricks to justify its bargain basement price.

Compared to previous Touch handsets, the Viva was always bound to come up wanting, though it's easy to see where the money has been saved. Unfortunately, some of the savings seem to undermine the Viva's strengths, which include a good browser - so it...

The Touch Viva has a nice design, and it is responsive and easy to use.

HTC Touch Viva review

 

We review the HTC Touch Viva, a budget alternative to the HTC Touch

Touch screen ; TouchFLO ; Wi-Fi ; 2 megapixel camera ; microSD

No 3G ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; No landscape screen option

The HTC Touch Viva retains some of the good stuff of HTC's Touch series, like the TouchFLO interface and browser, but is let down by a few penny-pinching omissions.

HTC Touch Viva

 

The Touch Viva is the baby brother in HTC's latest Touch Series announcements, which features a pared down version of TouchFlo 3D matched with a simplified spec sheet. HSDPA and GPS are notably absent.

To be a success, the Viva needs to have an irresistible price and great battery life. We'll analyse those two factors once we get more information and a review set, so look out for that.
