What a brilliant phone this is!
Way ahead of its time: the keyboard lights up when in dark environments; it has got flash/light both for videos and photos.
The TYTN even has video calling and mine is currently running WM 6.5 (stock Rom) without lagging.
Very pleased, as I have a perfectly operational phone and I'm not missing anything essential.
levis, 21 Mar 2012how is this fon compared to tytn iiThe "Slide and tilt construction" of its keyboard makes it flimsy and fragile.
I much prefer the original: no GPS, but NO LAG and very solid construction.
The TYTN is REALLY a phone built to last!
levis, 21 Mar 2012how is this fon compared to tytn iiIn my opinion, it is pretty much the same.
The TYTN 2 is newer and it allows you to tilkt your screen more comfortably, placiing your screen and its keyboard as if you were typing in a tiny laptop.
I have used a TYTN2 for a VERY short period of time and I haven't noticed any significant differences...
Personally, I am used to my TYTN and I still recommend it as a GREAT phone!
I would almost go as far as saying that, compared to today's phones, tge TYTN is is virtually... Indestructible!
Great phone. Still performing withut faults.
I only wish it had a GPS antenna...
This way, I've had to get me a BT one...
How come this phone gets this score and isn't on the Top Chart?
Many other discontinued phones are there.
Why isn't the TYTN where it its rightful place?
The TYTN may be getting old, but it still works... full steam ahead.
WM 6.5 fully operational.
Advisable to get an extra battery, though.
Its battery seems to be this phone's weakest link, but there are still plenty of batteries available and they're not all that expensive.
I also recommend this phone!
The true TYT(A)N of ALL phones.
They don't build them like this anymore and that's a shame!!!
Strong, resistant, with all the gadgets you may wish for.
Get it a BlueTooth antenna and you've even got a GPS device at your service.
Hot-Swappable memory card; iluminated keyboard (with sensor); camera with flash; full keyboard AND touchscreen... this phone was built ahead of its time and it still works just fine.
How are votes counted?
The Xperia Play and the HTC TYTN (both 3X8.4) are behind this phone (8.4 - 8.4 - 8.3).
Actually,with the same score the HTC Diamond2 isn't even on this chart.
And with a higher score the TYTN does not seem to even exist! Why?
Even older models keep appearing here which is great to realise how valuable and relevant they still are.
A Top List of mobile phones shouldn't be the result of all users' opinions and not being limited to release dates, as to present only the latest models on the market.
Anyway,if that is the case - which would be seriously WRONG and unethical - we should be informed and voting on "out of contest" phones should not be allowed as it currently is.
Everyone can vote on the phone they own, like it or hate it. That's democracy, that's the beauty of this chart; We can all have a saying without censorship!
Is that about to end?
Is this chart only important to showcase new models and earn advertising money to the site?
If it's so, at least be honest with it and speak openly, as we are the one who've created your fame and reputation worldwide.
We've got a true 'Jack-of-all-trades' here!!!
Glad to see mine is not the only HTC TYTN still in use. =)
Great, sturdy phone. You can really go places with it, as it will never let you down as most modern fragile phones will.
I wonder how many TYTNs keep on working.
Mine is still my only phone. I had to replace the battery but other than that, it keeps on working flawlessly.
Not interested in updating to current models which seem to flooding the market on a daily basis just be outdated right after their launch.
Really happy with my phone, so far... and using my hard earned money for more useful things! =)
Built to last.
The last of the solid-built quality phones.
At the time,it really had all you could ask for.
Today, you'll need a separate BT GPS antenna, that's all.
Take it anywhere, use it anyway. It will work for you under the worst conditions.
OWNER, 26 Jan 2012I have one of these, very nice device. I got WM 6.5 on it and works with no lag at all. Wi-Fi ... moreMy best phone ever. Really complete.
Too bad manufacturers keep dropping quality standards.
A timeless classic.
I only wish most phones still had all the features of a TYTN, taking adavantage of today's technology.
Phones would be much better and user-friendly if they followed the TYTN's example!
Ralph, 30 Jan 2012Greta 'big' phone. Heavy, but stursy, resistant and full of great potential.
I also own one a... moreYou mean sturdy, right?
Yes, the good'ol TYTN still delivers.
An example followed by many and a phone that will stand at historical phone's hall of fame.
Greta 'big' phone. Heavy, but stursy, resistant and full of great potential.
I also own one and keep using it: it has everything you need and you save up your dollars for more precious goods!!!
I have one of these, very nice device. I got WM 6.5 on it and works with no lag at all. Wi-Fi is quite fast, and yutube loads eally well. The speaker is loud and clear, and the camera preformance is one of the best comparing to other 2MP cameras. Batery life is realy nice for a device this big, last 3days no problem. Qwerty is comfortable and have a nice "pop up" feel to them.
This phone is like a Rolls-Royce: you may not want one, you may nor even like it, but it is a symbol of how things should be done.
The TYTN has got everything, it was a phone ahead of its time.
That is why so many of us still use theirs and fully enjoy this superb machine.
The TYTN deserves the praise: It has stood the test of time and came out as a clear Winner!
