jdpsmb, 20 Jan 2012i have this phone from t-mobile and unlocked.... will this phone work for calls and 3g data in... moreyes, HTC Radar can be used in the Philippines with Globe Telecom :) I tried the 3 major networks and it worked well. HTC has an app named Connection Setup that helps in configuring the network connection/settings.
razzi, 30 Jan 2012Can this be a WiFi hot spot as well? Yes, HTC Radar can be used as a wifi hotspot... Check internet sharing in settings.
I got this phone two weeks ago. previosly I had the HTC TouchPro II, also a Windows phone.
The good news is that the UI is much better than previous Windows OS phones. The bad news is that it's a lot more difficult to sync and copy with my other systems. MS has taken a step backwards in this area. It used to be that I could hook up my phone to my laptop and handle it just like another storage device for docs, music, pics, and ringtones. The NS tool for syncing with Outlook was much cleaner than it is with Windows Phone 7.5.
An a 1-5 scale, I give it a 3.5. Better performance, easier UI, more difficult integrations.
love the phone! im always online almost whole day except when I sleep, battery would last me 1 day and 22 hours if for mild use, but 16 hours for online whole day with 3g and tinkerng with the phone!
Priya, 23 Jan 2012Hi ALL, I am looking for a cell phone in HTC,But confused in between HTC-Desire S and HTC Rad... morei love htc radar that the microsoft office,excel., power point in you hand..,which other smart phone dont have it...

How is the battery on this phone? For example, I use it for talking maybe 10 minutes a day but i browse a lot (2-3 hours).. What do you think how long would it last?
Priya, 23 Jan 2012Hi ALL,
I am looking for a cell phone in HTC,But confused in between HTC-Desire S and HTC Rad... moreI think you should have a good look at both. The Android device has a few more features and a much larger app market, while the Windows Phone device has a smooth, clean user interface, plus the hubs which put related functions together in an innovative way.
Personally I think Windows Phone seems to be going in a direction that looks very promising, but I'd say you need a hand-on experience to find out what you think is more important.
The Android OS is far superior and rated the best OS, so the Desire S is a better choice
I am looking for a cell phone in HTC,But confused in between HTC-Desire S and HTC Radar....Please suggest which one will be better.....?
jdpsmb, 20 Jan 2012i have this phone from t-mobile and unlocked.... will this phone work for calls and 3g data in... morei think most likely, it will be working perfectly with GLOBE coz the RADAR is being sold here in the PI and i am also planning to get this phone along with the SONY XPERIA S that's gonna come out by the end of january. just make sure though that you'll buy the radar here in the philippines so that the guys from globe can configure the settings for you easily if in case you have troubles with the unit's compatibility with the network.
