Disadvantages: Very little, possibly not enough internal memory.
The HTC Legend almost brings a tear to my eye as it was my first proper smart phone and what a great little phone it was (and still is). The Legend is a really solid piece of kit as it is milled from a solid piece of aluminium and feels great in the hand. I have dropped the legend a few times and it's just like it looks at you and says, "Is that all you've got"!
Even the slightly upward slant of the phone at the bottom gives it that bit of class and brings admiring looks from others as it is still a relatively unknown model. With everything being so light and plasticky(excuse the made up word) now the Legend is a breath of fresh air and as Peter Kay might say, this could be considered the SAS of the phone world !
Well, enough of the outer shell, what can the phone actually do? The Legend is simple to operate with easy to navigate menus that even a child can work, as proven by my eight year old daughter who managed to acquire the Legend when I purchased a Galaxy S2! There is enough internal memory for plenty of apps although it could do with slightly more. As with all smart phones, simply bung in the micro sd card of your choice and your phone is now an mp3 player/photo library, etc.
The Legend takes great pictures and pretty good videos with its 5mp camera that you would be happy to print off. The sound from the music player is also of the highest quality and you even get a decent set of earphones with it!
Accessing the internet is also a dawdle and is surprisingly quick and the screen, while not as large as some of the top end phones today is more than adequate.
To sum up, this is a great all round phone and while they might be pretty hard to track down now, if you can get one you will not be disappointed as it does everything very well and you will not have to pay over the odds for one.
Summary: Brilliant all round phone
