I apologize if this review does not suit those looking for more technical info. This can be found elsewhere.
Where can you get one?
I came by this phone in an Orange shop. I liked the look of it and discussed contracts. I checked Vodafones website and didn't see it there so I phoned them for my PAC number so I could change provider. That was when I discovered the thing with HTC; they often allow rebadging of their phones. Hence, I have a Vodafone v1615. It is also called a Kaiser III.
Why did I want this Phone?
I wanted a phone/PDA so that I could keep a diary with me at all times. i know that a pocket diary would work as well, but I love technology. It also syncs with my laptop. You can also work in Excell or word easily.
Which Feature do I use the most?
Probably the Internet access and also Adobe reader looking at brochures
How good is it as a phone?
Dialing can be a problem as you have to use the touch screen. However, i have managed to do it with one hand and you get used to it. Once you have a phone book built up it gets easier.
Most dissapointed with:
GPS. It may be me but I cannot get this to work.
Is it better than an iPhone?
As far as I can tell, all the features are there, plus the battery life appears much better. I think this beats iphone hands down, and has less gimmics.
Summary: Must have for techs
