Pros - Great screen
- a ton of featues
- looks sleek and feels sturdy
- fantastic sound quality
- on-screen keyboard that works really well in portrait and landscape
- best pull-out keyboard that I've seen on any phone
Cons Goes to the home screen when you put it to your ear when making a call. You have to press "phone" then "keypad" to enter extra keys. This is a pain when dialing into your voicemail, or an automated system that needs extra keys to navigate
Summary I really love this phone so far! I've had it for 2 days and I'm still excited to get up in the morning to use it :)
I showed it to a friend of mine who is a big iPhone lover and he was even impressed with the Touch Pro 2. This is my 3rd Windows Mobile phone, but this is the first one that I'm acutally proud to show off.
The keyboards (on-screen and pull-out) are really good. The on-screen keyboard is very responsive and I rarely miss-hit (although sometimes I accidently close on-screen keyboard when I'm trying to hit the space bar).
It comes with an MP3 trimmer that let's me grab any portion of a song that I want and make it a ringtone. A simple thing, but I love it.
The only negative point that I've found so far is that the phone goes to the home page when you put it against your ear. So if you are dialing into your voicemail get the prompt to enter your PIN, you have to click on the "phone" button to get to the call menu, and then click on "keypad" to access the keypad. The Touch Pro 2 has a great call menu (quickly access 3-way calling, speaker phone, calendar, mute, and a bunch of other things), so I don't know why is doesn't just stay on that screen while you are in the middle of a call. Hopefully they address this when they launch the Windows Mobile 6.5 version of the OS in October.
As for the size, I think that it's fine. Yeah it's heavier than the iPhone, but I gladly accept that for the full keyboard and the speakerphone system. It fits well in my pant pocket...
Anyway, the bottom-line is that I love this phone and highly recommend it to anyone who is considering it. You won't regret it
Pros Touch Flo, Screen to die for, Loud and clear audio, Microsoft Exchange for Personal and VPN. Don't know why CNET thinks heavy and solid is bad??? 3G yes foso! 288 mb on board memory not bad. G1 has 64 mb :(
Cons Only nitpicking really but 3.2 mpeg pixel and no flash,come on. Really. 5 and Flash minimum for top tier phones. 2.5 headphone jack please. Can get adapter though.
Summary Not a windows fan (BB and Linux) but I've had this US version (Tmo) for about a month.
Quite shocked after SDA,MDA,Dash,Wing less than stellar reliability. HTC has thrown in about all you could want in a Pocket PC. TPII does have 3g connectivity!!!!! Great for all the female road warriors with nails, and guitarist with that one long nail.
"OUTSTANDING!!!"on by matttomko
Pros Easy to use keyboard
Touch Flow 3D more responsive
Quick contact buttons
Cons I didn't find any!
Summary I have always wanted an iPhone, but then i realized how much better some other phones are. This is by far my favorite phone in the universe! It is so easy to type on the new keyboard, and the fact that the screen tilts at different angles is enough to make me cry! Plus, now that Touch Flow 3D is more responsive, it is my favorite way of navigating around! On other phones it was slow and annoying, but I was amazed at how well it did on this phone!!! The camera is no 8 megapixel camera, but it still takes great photos!!! I love the screen too! It is gorgeous, and it is the perfect touch screen! Way to go HTC!!! I love this phone!!! Definite improvement over previous Touch Pro!!!
Pros Amazing Font Display/With Touch Screen! New Zoombar is perfect.
A Brilliant Tilt Screen allowing users to view at any level!
Push-out external keyboard with smooth easy push keys.
Alng with TouchFlo3D working as designed
Outstanding Home Screen
Cons Their is always.. always a Con about a phone or in that matter anything.
But i havn't seen anything really wrong with this device?
Touch screen A +, QWERTY A +, New Home Screen that acually brightens up your day...
Summary I've never thought the IPhone was anything special. I am a man of Technology and the IPhone just happen to come out with a fancy look? Didn't fool me.. Square black boxes linked to Apps? Wow .. Sweet. This HTC Touch Pro 2 is insane. This phone is Beautiful. The screen display is up to date and allows the business user to do conference calls, classy speaker phone abilites, pefect for the Business man of our new Technology Advanced Ecomony. If i was the President of a company like Good Year, etc, I would want everyone to carry ths phone. It will make life/work/ and personal experiences outshine any others with its new ideal features. HTC is the Future of creating what people want and need with the mobile world in the year 2009 and so on. Watch this company rise to the top. I'm calling it. They are a company working for their consumer, and not just making money. Which we need more companies like this to prefect our new Technological way of life.
"Excellent Paperweight"on by 4DM
Pros Easy texting
Cons Nothing works correctly or intuitively
Summary This is the worst electronic device I have ever owned (and I'm 57). It is slow...very slow. But it is Windows based, so that is probably average for that operating system. A typical scenario is: touch an icon; wait; wait some more; then something happens. It may not be what you wanted, but something will eventually happen. It is a phone, but when receiving a call, you must proceed very slowly or it will simply drop your call; and I don't think it is Verizon's drop. Others seem to have no problem getting a signal, answering a call, emailing etc. With this phone, each of those functions is a crap-shoot every time. If you are an urban-dweller with constant strong signals, the battery should last as you would expect, but if you venture to an area with a weak signal, expect the battery to last about as long as Rush Limbaugh at a Democratic fund raiser. Internationally, I only use the texting option, which works OK. But be careful, you cannot dis-able all data connections, so in foriegn countries you will continue to run up some data charges. Bottom line: Don't buy this phone.
All things considered, however, it does make an excellent paperweight.
Thanks for your submission!
