HTC 7 Mozart Review
Call quality on the HTC 7 Mozart is on the whole good. When listening on the phone, there are no issues with regards to either volume or clarity. Listeners on the other end of the line found that the phone was a bit quiet at times, however, repositioning the handset slightly corrected for this. The loudspeaker delivers an overall good noise, though is slightly tinny with a few muffles, but nothing major. With there being no issues with regards to reception or mobile browsing, the HTC 7 Mozart gets an overall thumbs-up in this department.

Get the HTC 7 Mozart up and running and you will find the overwhelming smoothness and visual flare of the OS. Given the hardware and software, 99% of the time, it all runs like a dream.

One final point on performance is the lack of true multi-tasking. This didn't ruin the experience by any means, but meant, for example that a half written text was lost on a couple of occasions when hitting the search button by mistake.

Battery life on the HTC 7 Mozart is pretty standard. With a quoted 6.75 hours talk time and 18 days standby time, in reality, it lasts a full day and maybe a bit more. Better than the HTC Desire, Desire HD and HD7, however, not a patch on similarly specced Symbian phones.


Conclusion:

The HTC 7 Mozart is all the Trophy is and more. With a great screen, comfortable, ergonomic design and an attractive interface with a lot of promise, the phone won’t do everything an Android handset will, however, it’s much easier to work your way around, and with the bonus of an 8MP camera with a xenon flash, it makes for a compelling choice. If you aren’t concerned about the camera, check out the HTC 7 Trophy for an almost identical experience just without the 8MP sensor andxenon flash. Other options include the HTC Desire HD for a more multimedia-centric Android alternative, or the iPhone 4 if you want better app support.
