HTC Smart Reviews
MobilechoiceUK reviews the HTC Smart and writes;
“Verdict: A good balance between affordability and feature-packed smartphones, the Smart provides advanced capabilities in an affordable, accessible package.”
Recombu reviews the HTC Smart and writes;
“Call quality on the HTC Smart got no complaints from us – while we wouldn’t go as far as to use the phrase ‘clear as a bell’, there’s barely any crackle or fizz on the line, leaving just a nice clear call…”
Pocket Lint reviews the HTC Smart and writes;
“As a phone the HTC Smart is comfortable to use and we had no problems with call quality. One of the things we really like about the Smart (and HTC Sense in general) is being able to appoint favourite people. You then get a page where you get direct access to the people you contact the most and you can define what action the phone takes when you press on each person..”
Techradar hands-on reviews the HTC Smart and writes;
“..the Smart has a lot of… well, smarts about it. It can multi-task better than other handsets that cost three times the (expected) price, and it’s got a lovely form factor.”
SlashGear reviews the HTC Smart and writes;
“In the hand, the Smart is compact and lightweight, and while the plastics obviously aren’t at the level of the Desire, neither do they feel like they’ll buckle and snap with the lightest squeeze. Hardware controls are limited to call and end keys, a tiny options button and a large back button. There are also volume controls on the side, together with a dedicated camera shortcut key, while on top there’s a 3.5mm headphone socket and on the bottom HTC’s own ExtUSB port. ..”
