HTC 7 trophy

To the launch of Windows phone 7, HTC has presented three models for the German market, received exclusive rights to the HTC 7 trophy here on Vodafone. The housing is typical of HTC properly processed. All components fit together clean, and although the mantle consists of assembled parts, he gives the impression of a closed unit thanks to the well-tuned transitions.

Overall, is the more conventionally-HTC 7 trophy very robust and stable and is with its soft rubberized back grip and pleasant, if not quite as smooth as about the HTC described on the previous page 7 Mozart, in his hand.

Inside all new

Inside of the trophy pulses a 1 GHz processor of Snapdragon with 576 MB RAM very well on the hardware is set, allowing a high operating comfort without annoying jerks or halt the operating system.

The capacitive screen, which measures 3.8 inches on the diagonal, extremely reliable and directly responds to finger touch; the virtual QWERTY keyboard is displayed, entering text in vertical alignment succeeds amazingly fast and precisely.

Also multitouch gestures, such as when the two finger zoom in on documents or Web pages, are implemented without delay. In addition the display is sufficiently bright and represents crisp-sharp, intense colour and high contrast content.

The E-Mail client is simple and clearly; Messages can be easily to type even in portrait mode.

Apart from the touch screen more of the trophy of the three underlying sensor keys, which after a short orientation phase quickly and safely through the new Microsoft operating system to navigate allows controlled.

On the left side of the two-part main view interactive tiles bundle a variety of information, about to received messages or upcoming appointments, open and customizable. So also favorite contacts and applications as tiles on which can be place start screen. With the swipe of a finger to the left, the full menu with all the content in a scrollable depending on the number of installed software view in appearance occurs dynamically down.

Battery as Achilles heel

As one of the first WP7 models the trophy in our Metrology Laboratory had to prove themselves, the editorial on the results was similarly excited. It shows especially the energy management improvement: with a determined endurance of only 3:45 hours in the daily mix of battery with heavy use keep through no all day – this is weak. Acoustic and receiver measurements move at a good level, without particularly to lift.

The bottom line, the weak battery in combination with the currently still somewhat Holey basic equipment of Windows phone 7 throws the HTC model despite potent operating system in the rear third of the leaderboard.
