Customer Review: HTC Touch Review
I found the phone to be very poor, the battery life was less the 3 hours. The touch screen did not work well for a touch screen phone. The screen itself was way to small for the high prices paid.
Customer Review: Great Smartphone
It has everything you want from a smartphone with a simple look. It's very sturdy in built. I dropped the phone once and the back cover and battery fell out but It booted up without any problem afterwards.
This US version doesn't have a front video call camera, but who really uses that anyway. I get HSDPA/3G coverage in the US (Manhattan) and Canada (Vancouver), so there's no question about its 3G frequency and no need to upgrade firmware for it.
TouchFlo 3D is a little slow and takes a while to get used to, but after installing tweaks found on xda, it runs smoothly now. Windows mobile interface also takes some getting-used-to if you are switching from a non-pda phone. Built-in Opera browser is smooth and fast and totally owns IE mobile.
If you are looking for a heavy duty phone that gets you all the phone features plus email (downloaded from both wireless or Wi-Fi), GPS, internet, lots of customization, installing your own software like references, scheduling, maps (it comes with google map), then this is a great phone to be considered.
