Review: HTC Touch

dsc02412.jpg

I have been using this phone for about four weeks now and using most of the day. It has some clear advantages and disadvantages to this phone, you either will love it or hate it. Overall I think its a very good for its purpose, but some other phones do other things better then it.

Pros:

  • Very good touch interface
  • Wifi
  • Decent battery, lasts at least 3-4 days with normal use
  • Bright screen and loud speaker
  • Very slim and light
  • Interfaces easily with Windows XP
  • Simple to make a phone call
  • Lots of available applications.
  • Solid rubbery build
  • Arabic interface

Cons:

  • Nearly impossible to text on the go
  • Can’t distinct between a number with +965 and a normal number, can’t match them up with a user.
  • Windows mobile 6 needs to break away from the stiffness of the competition and go with a better OS.
  • Price

    It’s been a year since you wrote this review. HTC has several new Touch phones, my favorite being the Touch HD.

    Texting on the go is important, and I wonder whether the newer models are any better at it.

    The not-recognizing-intl-dialing-prefix problem happens in Nokias too (at least on every Nokia I’ve ever used). It’s annoying.

    Windows Mobile 7 is still a long way off (they say late 2009). HTC has tried to build their own interface over WinMo, and though they have managed to make it more usable, I guess plastic surgery isn’t the answer.

    I love the Touch HD, but WinMo is one of biggest reasons why I not buy it.
