'Impressive HTC Legend' could encourage consumers to sell an old mobile
17 March 2010 — 7:18 PM
The number of people looking to recycle their mobile phone and upgrade to the new HTC Legend could be set to rise after technology publication T3 gave the handset a positive review.
Billed as a replacement to last year's Hero device, the phone is set to launch on Vodafone shortly and it has been given a glowing review from T3, which praised its aluminium construction and web browsing offerings.
The handset is also noticeably faster than its predecessor, the magazine noted, as HTC has upgraded its processer to one running at 600 MHz, meaning Windows open quicker and users can run multiple applications "without any sluggishness".
However, one downside of the handset is its multimedia features, with T3 stating that while HTC has made an improvement over the Hero's offering "the music player feels very much like a secondary feature".
HTC also announced the Desire recently and Website 3G.co.uk suggested that it is "virtually the same smartphone as the Google Nexus One".
It runs the Android Éclair operating system and features HTC Sense.
