great phone, great pda, surprised it's not more popular

 

Jul 5, 2009 by htrony

I’ve used the sprint htc snap for about 2 weeks now. I should note that I prefer windows mobile standard as my mobile o.s., so I won’t review that part of the phone, you can read elsewhere for that.

Pro’s
- Really good battery life, best cdma pda battery life I have ever seen
- Gps is VERY fast, never took more than 5 seconds for initial lock, and the GPS signal is quite strong, I am able to get my location inside of buildings, though not as accurate, but this is a feat I never really accomplished with previous gps enabled phones.
- Data speeds are faster than normal rev. 1 speeds, I think the 528mhz processor helps
- Nice preinstalled apps, includes links to any google app, mp3 trimmer for ringtones, nfl mobile, picture messaging, pie 6, etc.
- you can manually update the PRL or Firmware
-the screen is actually way too bright on the brightest settings, my guess that feature is used for direct sunlight only
- comes with adapter to plug in regular headphones and other inputs, great for listening to mp3’s
- you can automatically send a pre-written text to someone when you ignore their call (very convenient feature)
-for a windows mobile phone, it is very stable.
-good reception, clear calls, good speaker, slim/small in the hands, as a phone alone, no issues

Con’s
-not the best qwerty in the world, small learning curve with the keyboard, you will likely keep hitting the caps button instead of the “a” for the first week, even though the space bar is off centered, I have no problems with it, I may even prefer it.
-phone screen scratches easily, or at least notably easier than my previous Samsung ace (this is the only true con about the device that has bothered me)
-backlight for the keyboard is not too consistent, but isn’t horrible either
-Verizon’s version of this phone costs $100 less, includes GSM and wi-fi, and what appears to be a better keyboard
- Tmobile’s version includes a nice matte finish, instead of the glossy plastic as on the sprint’s version.

Let Down By HTC

 

Nov 16, 2009 by nailson80

I had a HTC Touch Pro from Sprint and loved the phone. Unfortunately the keyboard stopped working so I took it to the Sprint store to have them fix it. They said they could not fix it and I would have to select a comparable phone from a list they provided. Unfortunately I ended up with the HTC Snap. There is no way this phone comes close to the Touch Pro.

CONS:

The keyboard is poorly designed. The buttons are small and too close together. Typing on this phone is impossible.

It is difficult to close programs. With multiple programs open this phone becomes less responsive.

PROS:

N/A

Oh Snap!

 

Sep 1, 2009 by getupkid86

I recently renewed my Sprint account at a local Best Buy and after searching through a ton of phones, the HTC Snap caught my attention!

The Snap is a really sleak looking phone with only one button (volume rocker) on the sides and a full QWERTY keyboard on the front.

Pros:
- Windows Mobile 6.1 (upgradable future releases).
- 2.4" TFT screen (Great for Sprint TV)
- 2.0 Megapixel camera.
- A lot of valuable preloaded applications.
- Great battery life for a smartphone!
- Always have great reception and all bars.

Cons:
- Very slippery build. You'll need a case for sure.
- No flash for the camera.

Overall, the biggest issue is the slippery casing. All you need is a rubber case and a screen protector and you'll be set!

Value Priced Business Phone

 

Jul 1, 2009 by KeepNTouch

I do not own this phone, but for what it's worth I evaluated it in the Sprint store and made a few calls from the phone. The voice quality on the calls was excellent. The phone is VERY lightweight and the interface worked smoothly. The MP3 player sound was good, but not as good as another phone. The PIM was very good on this phone as well. I decided not to purchase this phone because
a) I simply do not need WORD, EXCEL and POWERPOINT on a phone
b) it was $100 more than the phone I selected

Overall, I felt this was a nicer phone than the PALM Pre. Why? Because the interface Windows Mobile is tried and true. I think it's excellent priced business phone. Phone voice quality was better than earlier models Touch and Touch Pro.
