HTC has put its user interface and software development chops to good use on this little phone, which emulates the Sense smartphone experience on a device that's not a smartphone. The HTC Freestyle is one of the first to be based on Qualcomm's BREW MP. HTC proves that even non-smartphone operating systems can be simple and powerful.

Hands-On with the HTC 10
HTC showed off its 2016 flagship smartphone today. The HTC 10 takes all the characteristics we've come to appreciate in HTC and amps them up.
Why would anyone buy this phone?
As for the phone price, I bought my Inspire at the no commitment price, so the Freestyle would be $100.00 less. The huge decrease in functionality, in my opinion, wouldn't be worth saving $100.00.
Nice feature phone (HTC's Sense UI rocks), but ultimately not worth it.
personally, I would not buy ANY phone that did not support Java... particularly a dumbphone... you got to have Java on a dumbphone -- no other way you'll get decent apps. Brew is too limited...
