HTC S710 Mobile Phone
Member Name: mipouk
Advantages: Bright Screen, quality buttons easy to navigate around
Disadvantages: Keyboard sliding motion freezes the phone sometimes
I was handed this phone to configure Active Sync for a colleague on which worked great without any issues. The menu and buttons all respond nice and quickly and it has been made easy to navigate around the screen. I have since been given one of these phones for work.
A nice touch is how the keeyboard pops out allowing you to type in QWERTY fashion. However when sliding the keyboard in and out, the screen will freeze for a good few seconds and also the music that accompanies the sliding action seems to break up and sometimes just stops halfway through and you have to wait for the phone to respond again. This can be quite annoying when you are trying to type an email or input commands o configure email for example.
The overall appearance of the phone is very good, the screen is bright and shiny and the keys feel of good quality and the phones do not seem to scratch as easily as other models.
Summary: Nicely made phone with slight keyboard sliding niggle
