Advantages: Excellent camera, downloadable apps, great personalisation settings
Disadvantages: Low battery life, small touch keypad
The HTC Smartphone is an overall good phone. I find it hard to use the touch screen; the letters and numbers are rather close together - but that may just be me! The texting facility is great; it saves all your messages and is easy to go back over and look over them.
The internet and wireless facility is also fantastic and easy to use. The HTC market provides apps which are convenient for everyday use, or just for fun.
The phone comes with ready downloaded apps such as youtube, weather, transfer (which transfers everything from your old phone which is awesome!) and such like. I have downloaded wi-fi hotspot, UK & World News, Twitter, Facebook, Trainline Tickets (allowing you to look up train times and book tickets), Movies, IMDB and the F1 2011 app.
The phone constanly updates by connecting to the internet. Great for me who has internet built into my contract. Not so great for those who don't, so be sure to check when you buy the phone, or get the phone on contract about internet connectivity. There is an option to switch the internet off but personally i wouldn't trust it! You can set up a number of email accounts also and get mail directed straight to your mobile.
The camera is FANTASTIC. The best bit of the phone actually...the pictures are excellent quality, as are the videos.
The battery does not have a very good life on it! Although it depends how much you use it. If you are like me and are on your phone a lot, constantly connected to the net and on and off your apps, you will find yourself charging it at least overnight.
Summary: An overall good phone for those who use EVERYTHING such as internet, phone, text, apps, facebook etc
