fun to play with, but taking it back


Oct 23, 2008, 4:46 PM
I'm the 1st to admit the screen and features are nifty and fun to play with, but on a practical level I just can't live with this phone.
For one, the battery life is horrible esp. for a phone that is DESIGNED to be played with a lot. Another design flaw is for all its media features, it lacks stereo bluetooth capability!! That right there is a complete deal breaker for me, I always use my phone as an mp3 player with my S9- and with built in youtube as well you'd think that'd be included- that was really unexpected from HTC. Speaking of youtube - some basic searches yield the dumbest, most obscure results instead of the common one you're looking for ( that comes up 1st on a normal youtube search).
The interface is mostly intuitive, MOSTLY...
