HTC Mozart 4 Stars

« Back to reviews HTC Mozart

Look and feel

The Teflon outer case is quite different but hardly stylish, and the handset sports a lot of logos. But despite this, the Windows Phone 7 OS is contemporary, tidy and enjoyable to use.

Ease of use

We found the display responsive, the interface intuitive and we were impressed with navigation. If you’re syncing contacts, or playing video and music, you’ll have no problem. We just baulked at the number of clicks needed just to make a phone call.

Features

The eight-megapixel snapper was a letdown, despite sporting a Xenon flash. We thought it a shame there was no copy and paste facility either, but we were pleased with media, email and web functions.

Performance

With its fast pace and quick responses, we really enjoyed playing with the Mozart. It’s easy to use, proves intuitive in many ways, and also boasts a good touch-screen.

Battery life

You’ll find the majority of smartphones require a charge each night, and the Mozart does too, most notably if you are running GPS, the music player, Wi-F and 3G.

Pros:
Cost of buying apps goes directly on to mobile phone bill; very decent social media integration; Zune and Xbox Live sync, impressive email functions; responsive display.
Cons:
The eight-megapixel snapper is mediocre; making a call is pretty long-winded, Bing Maps is no match for Google Maps.
