T-Mobile MDA Compact IV mobile phone

 

Before HTC made phones for itself it made unbranded phones for the operators. So should you opt for the HTC Diamond, or the T-Mobile variant - the MDA Compact IV? We look at the differences to find out. Rather like a colour change, the T-Mobile version...

HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, interface, no sign of Windows Mobile 6.1, lighter

No external storage, no 3.5mm jack, battery life

Rather like a colour change, the T-Mobile version of the HTC Diamond doesn't really change much from the Diamond offering. In fact the only reason to opt for this variant over the original would be a preference in the casing.

T-Mobile MDA Compact IV review

 

Compact and stylish mobile computing

Sleek styling ; HSDPA ; Good screen ; 4GB internal memory

Poor battery life ; Usability issues ; Non-expandable memory

A well-featured device which is let down by its dodgy interface

We'd love to love it, but it's too much of a fiddle to use.

Looks stunning and is packed with features.

Falls over in the handling department and is short on battery life.

Review: T-Mobile MDA Compact IV

 

If the MDA Compact V seems familiar that is because it is essentially the same device as the HTC Touch Diamond2 we reviewed back in June. But is always the case with the MDA range, T-Mobile has put its own stamp on the handset, both in terms of...

The same can be said of T-Mobile’s other addition to TouchFLO, Mobile TV & Video, which is just a link to their website and encouragement to get you spending money on their services. To be fair, this is probably the only time T-Mobile's customisations...
