HTC 7 Mozart Review
This is a global GSM phone. It can be used with T-Mobile USA and AT&T, but without 3G.

Introduction:


HTC 7 Mozart Review
HTC's launch line of Windows Phone 7 handsets includes the most affordable HTC 7 Trophy, the HTC HD7 at the top end, and sandwiched in between the two is the HTC 7 Mozart, the smallest screened handset (by 0.1 inch). It is however equipped with the best camera of the bunch, with an 8MP sensor and a xenon flash on-board. So is the higher-specced camera enough to make buyers choose the HTC 7 Mozart over the competition? Lets find out.


Design:

The HTC 7 Mozart is the most daring in terms of design of the three HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets. With a matte finish, asymmetrical battery cover and a raised swirl pattern on the reverse, it might not be to everyone's taste. It does however have a very appealing fascia, with a grill up top taken straight from the HTC Desire HD and an ergonomic curvature that makes holding it a pleasure.

You can compare the HTC 7 Mozart with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

The Super LCD screen measures in at 3.7 inches and has a resolution of 480x800 pixels. Of the launch line of HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets, it has the smallest screen, but also the sharpest. It really looks great, with vibrant colours, fantastic viewing angles and is responsive to the touch. There isn't much in it between this and the Trophy, though both appear to have more punch thaн the HD7 despite the smaller size. Outdoor viewing is on the whole good as are brightness and contrast.

The screen is encased is a slick glossy black fascia, at the bottom of which are three capacitive buttons directly underneath. Above the screen is a great looking grill, with a 3.5mm jack and power button atop the handset and the in-call mic below. To the left is the microUSB port, and a chrome-like volume rocker, and to the right, a two stage camera button. Flip the HTC 7 Mozart over and you'll find the 8MP camera, xenon flash, loud speaker and removable battery cover. The triangular battery cover slides off the bottom of the HTC 7 Mozart to reveal the battery which when unsecured, pops out leaving a SIM card slot in its tracks.

The HTC 7 Mozart therefore delivers a solid, well-constructed phone with some design flourishes that make it stand out. Love it or hate it, the back detailing adds personality, which, when coupled with a great screen and fantastic HTC build quality, makes for an all-round good experience.
