Great phone. Touchscreen and Windows Mobile new to me and wow its great so far. Just do note, as a camera phone it is undeniably weak. But as a portable media player, strong candidate. As an organizer, Windows Mobile period. As a phone, the keypad makes messaging and dialing much easier. Wndows Mobile really shines the moment you load up the applications. So much more powerful compared to those for smartphones (Windows Mobile is not smartphones per se. They are PDA phones which are more akin to intelligent phones rather than just smart).
gsmspore, 02 Jul 2008It's good phone. Internet is fast and slim. I can use Chinese and Japanese input and browsing.... moreThis phone is great. The look and feel is awesome.
But i have been researching on the chinese viewing and chinese input but to no avail.
Kind souls to mail me firstname.lastname@example.org to help me. Thanks
How about the short battery life of this phone? Mine goes flat too quickly and need to be recharged every night. Is it normal?
My HTC is awsome but the camera is not very good with only 2MP and no flash.
BEDE, 26 Jun 2008Get yourself a real camera 8..10Mpix and 3..4x zoom if you want real pictures! Or, even better... morei do hav a 12mpx camera, but then do u carry ya camera to work & everywhere else everytime? wen those unexpected moment arise & u need 2 capture them quick, instead of drivin all da way back home to pick up ya 12mpx camera, u cud jus slip ya hand in ya pocket & pull out ya WM based phone wit a 5mpx camera right there. oh i 4got, MW phone dnt hav 5mpx cameras, oh so i guess u jus capture them moments on ya 1.3mpx phone & hope dat in wont b cloudy

Now dat makes a whole lot of sense, dat mayb 65k screen might b a WM restrictions cause I've checked other phone brands dat run an WM OS and found that most, if not all, hav 65k screens. Thanx again man, much appreciate!
hi to all
i hav read a lot of oppinions of this phone and didnt find much useful comments but even then i ended up buyin the phone yesterday. so this is a help to ppl plannin for htc
The phone is beautifull to look at and use
ear piece is bad
phone cover is worse they could have given something better
touch interphase is better than touch actually brilliant
the ring vollume is amazingly loud
there is no wifi for sure and its fine by me
camera quality is okie nothing great
gprs works fast
i love the text input and t9 is better than nokia
photo viewing is awsome
the task bar when u slide open the device is the most useful thing i hav ever seen
keypad is fast
to b honest the best touch screen ever used by me
i have used O2 mini, O2atom executive and O2 zink
in my opinion those who r looking for beauty with brains this is your choice
and once more there is no wifi in this phone
so best of luck to all the buyers its beautifull hope u join the gang
It's good phone. Internet is fast and slim. I can use Chinese and Japanese input and browsing. The only negative part is the ear pierce. Attached ear pierce is not good. I bought bluetooth.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2008Agree. The sliding keypad does make it easier for beginners to feel "at home". Also the keypad... moreThanks for the feedback - I did consider the wifi / GPS issue, but at the end of the day I have the net at home and work, so its not a drama. the GPS would be nice but again I can live without it. I am just concerned that the phone reacts a little slow. I just looked at the Omnia and Diamond today and they respond quicker (messaging, programes). Is there any way for this to be overcome or is it just the way the phone is???
I have had this phone for a few months now and I am still finding new features and ways that it can enhance my life (thanks to the joy of windows and millions of apps)
I have found a Review of the HTC Touch Dual’s camera and also a compiled a list of handy and mostly free applications here: http://basicdog.co.uk
Chris, 24 Jun 2008I think the phone is a good entry for someone new to Windows mobile and PDA's in general. I am... moreAgree. The sliding keypad does make it easier for beginners to feel "at home". Also the keypad makes this a more accessible phone than non keypad WM devices. So someone looking for say the organizing capabilities of Windows Mobile while retaining a robust phone setup, the Touch Dual is higly recommended. Just do bear in mind for the price you're paying, you don't get things like GPS and Wi-Fi which seems the norm these days.
Sam7606, 21 Jun 2008Wat da hell it's with HTC mobiles and their 65k colour displays & 1.3mp/2mp poor cameras? Hell... moreGet yourself a real camera 8..10Mpix and 3..4x zoom if you want real pictures! Or, even better, a DSLR with 2 zoom lenses. Canon, Nikon, Olympus... For a phone and PDA 2Mpix camera is just fine. Or would you like a multimedia phone like Nokia N90? But Nokia does not have Windows OS, and the Symbian sucks in comparison with Windows Mobile.
Less then a week old the phone's at the Service Centre. 3G signal strengh was good showing almost full bars but can't make or receive calls, can't send or receive SMS and can't establish data connections. Checked with the service provider, they confirm my line is working and their 3G network is good. Anyone experience something like this?
I think the phone is a good entry for someone new to Windows mobile and PDA's in general. I am happy with the phone. A little bit of lag but nothing to cry about. I do want to know if everyone else experience's the delayed time adjustment when you turn the phone back on (off dormant). The phone will show the old time (last time it was on) then quickly show the current time - IS THIS NORMAL?
Sam7606, 21 Jun 2008Wat da hell it's with HTC mobiles and their 65k colour displays & 1.3mp/2mp poor cameras? Hell... more1) 65k colour is more a Windows Mobile restriction not HTC. Look around, there's not a single WM6.0 device that spots a 65k colour in their OS. The screen might display 262k but WM doesn't.
2) WM devices aren't exactly multimedia centric devices. They are PDA phones not exactly smartphones. I.e. they are a PDA with phone functionalities as opposed to phones with "smart" functions. That said, high end HTC devices do pack 3.0+ MP lenses.
Wat da hell it's with HTC mobiles and their 65k colour displays & 1.3mp/2mp poor cameras? Helloooo...dats like so last millenium. Arent they supposed to be 1 of da greatest techno junkies out there? Seems like they are stuck in da ancient times. Havnt they heard of 256kilopixels, let alone 16gigapixels screens? Who da hell wants to watch or capture moments on an ancient screen? Dats like watchin a high definition motion picture on a black&white tv. These peeps got to pull up their socks way up above their ankles. While they at it they shud upgrade i-mate screens & cams as well. Such rip-offs.
