The X7510 was designed primarily as a powerful PDA, which happens to have phone and camera capabilities. To compare pictures taken with this device with those taken with devices designed around photography is unfair. As regards battery life. I actually think battery life is one of the strongest selling points of the X7510. I personally do not use Bluetooth on any mobile device - they are battery killers. I get 2 full days use from a full charge and moderate use. It's phone capability is good, even though it is obviously too big to hold to your ear - which is why you need a headset with it. I find PowerPoint presentations with it awesome, especially slide show. I believe vaidisa's damning comments on the X7510 comes from a lack appreciation of the design theme.
Lucy, 25 Feb 2009someone please tell me whether 3g speed of 1.8 Mbps is good enough in X7510 or 7.2Mbps in touch HD wowwww
I've been using this device for two weeks now,but I'am pissed off how laggy it is (original firmare),checking update section every day on HTC and MS sites.The battery kinda week,hardly last a day (bt on for headset) like 1Hr of browsing, 2Hr of music some calls and sms,it's really annoying to charge every damn evening.Phonebook really poor,can't add much info for a contact,can't even add a picture(have to d-load extra software for that feature,wich not work properly,or u have to buy one).Camera quite poor,there are 2MPx phones with better picture quality,like my old SE w800i.Btw after pairing BT headset they just can't connect automatically next time,u have to connect them manually every freaking time,plus u can listen to music with BT headphones no problem,but then it comes to video,sound goes not trough headset but device speakers,can't understand why.The onscreen keyboard is aweful,the hardware keyboard also kinda useless.The WMPlayer can't even play his own formats like *wmv properly,i made one clip on desktop pc with WinMovieMaker,but it won't play on device properly,drops a lot of frames,its just terrible.Also all menus aren't much user friendly or touch friendly.The IExplorer is just useless,u cant even slide page any direction,u must use side displayed sliding bars,but thank god there is Opera,witch is pretty nice,but stil no normal youtube watching.Using Skyfire browser for that(skyfire sucks as browser,but its the one browser that can display flash videos ;)).But i like X7510 huge and bright display,really loud speakers.Overall fun to play for a while,but its just not finished properly,and it just not worth that nuch money;)Thanks for reading ;)

jimmunsw, 10 Feb 2009No x7510 II in production , you can verify by checking Htc homepage , but next in line coming ... moreI have had the X7510 for 2 weeks now and I think it is great. A replacement for this model should have 800x600 screen resolution. The screen is large enough for this resolution, and it would give a trully desktop experience.

wes , 06 Feb 2009is this a computer or is it a actual phone. anyone who can answer this question then thanks
Hi Wes ,
It's actually a 3g video & data phone integrated into a windows mobile 6 or 6.1 pocket pc / pda device which Dopod once called it a sub-notebook gadget ! that comes with a magnetic attached / detachable keyboard for your basic typing needs , for applications such as mobile words & excel , sms , mms , emailing and etc ....
However it is not a normal phone that you can make & receive private calls - only speaker phone concept , and of course ear plugs jack in plus bluetooth headset . Computing applications are in mobile or miniature format but not too bad and it is still usable . Ask the seller nearest to your place if you are keen to own one but be prepared to pay for it because it is expensive compare to other pdas or handphones . Used unit is cheap though but beware of faulty sets and no warranty ! Buy new with warranty is always better but will cost you . Your choice ...

I dont understand why some enduser of x7510, 7501 or u1000 complain about it's poor functionality and the rest . I have been using the device for a long time now and found that it's still the best pda device around with little or no problem at all . Probably they installed cooked rom that made all these problems arised , otherwise mine with the official rom is performing very well from day one . Also uninstall any softwares that is making the device lagging , i did that and my device is as fast as day one and it is still faster than any device around with as many softwares and functions attached to it . And yes you still can make normal phone calls by setting the volume button to lowest line - but on a speaker phone and not private call . And yes also you can put the device and keyboard into your breast / chest pocket . I put it into a homemade cloth sleeve and then put it into my t-shirt pocket daily with any uneasiness or problem or weightiness at all . This set is big - therefore you get a very good nice screen for video , pictures and words / excel applications . Other problems related to softwares - you need to try out which one can use and which one will give you problems - pda device is like that you see ! You will regret it only because you probably dont know how to fully use it and apply it properly , you also need help and guidance from friends , pda experts and xda developers to fully understand this powerful device - no joking ! It's far superior than a normal phone and still is the King of Pda .

This phone is an alternet option of a pc. the real mean of pocket pc. all feactures are good for use. also multimedia and business phone and pocket pc features. But there in no worthy keyboard. I think the keyboard should be better.
is this a computer or is it a actual phone. anyone who can answer this question then thanks
I had an HTC Advantage and used it extensively while traveling in Egypt, Jordan and Israel.
First of all, the specifications on the phone are excellent. It has a very fast processor and a lot of memory to accomplish any task that one may have for a Pocket PC Phone. It is the only phone faster than my HTC Universal. That said, it suffers from awful firmware, which does not fully take advantage of the awesome hardware of the phone. I have tried almost every firmware version out there and none of them worked quite right. Video for instance would be a great thing on this device, but the video drivers do not work properly. As a result every time I tried to watch a video, the picture was garbled and the sound was out of sync. Too bad because the screen on the phone is great-- bright, large and good resolution. Almost every other phone I have plays video better than this. The GPS unit on this phone is awful also. It takes quite some time to lock on and frequently drops the signal. Wifi is also an issue. I often could not reliably connect to various wifi spots that i could access using other smartphones such as the HTC 620 and HTC Universal.
As a phone the device is OK but awkward to use because it only functions as a speakerphone. It can be used with a headset, but sometimes you may want to use it without and if you do, it will be as a speakerphone.
I actually traded mine for a Nokia E90 because I got so fed up with how awful the firmware is at utilizing the amazing hardware of the device. Buyer beware: you will be disappointed.
download the skyfire browser for it and you can watch anything you want. same goes for any winmo device.
Would make a serious car phone I think.You just get yourself a dual call or a twin call sim card then you good.
