HTC J ReviewHTC J 7.5
Interface and Functionality:
The HTC J features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.1, and it runs very, very smoothly. Sense has become much lighter and we’d say better as it matured to 4.1, but while it is a big improvement in some areas like the camera, there are still some limps. We’ve mentioned its inconsistencies before with things like forcing an out-of-proportion huge on-screen settings button in apps. Multitasking is also the same card-based affair as on the One S instead of the what seems the better stock solution. On the plus side, you get customization options with various themes, quick access to four apps from the lock screen, a plethora of widgets including the signature HTC Weather Clock.
Processor and Memory:
In terms of silicon, the HTC J runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 with Adreno 225 graphics and 1GB of RAM. The S4 chip is manufactured with 28nm technology and that means better power efficiency and less of a heating problem than Tegra 3 devices. It scored high marks on standard Android benchmarks, maxing out the graphics result on NenaMark (which most high-end devices do).
|Quadrant Standard||AnTuTu||NenaMark 2|
|HTC One S||4867||7012||60,7|
|Sony Xperia SL||3218||7229||37,4|
|Motorola DROID RAZR M||4864||6715||61,3|
What these scores mean in a nutshell is that you get solid performance in virtually all areas, including games.
16GB of built-in memory with only around 10GB of that available to the end user. Luckily, internal storage is expandable via microSD cards of up to 32GB.The device ships with
Internet and Connectivity:
Browsing on the HTC J happens on the default Sense browser which supports Adobe Flash, text reflow (dynamically arranges text to fit the screen) and is very snappy scrolling around and zooming in and out.
You also get a reading mode that strips pages off ads, images, and leaves you intimately with the text, as well as incognito mode for your private browsing needs. Sure enough, you can download any other browser from Google Play, and we do prefer Chrome with its cross-device sharing, but having that freedom of browser choice alone is valuable.
In terms of connectivity, the device features quad-band GSM, HSPA at 2100 MHz and CDMA plus WiMAX for Asia. Otherwise, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS round up the standard connectivity package.
