HTC 5800 Fusion Review
Introduction:

The HTC 5800 Fusion could be considered the CDMA counter-part to the GSM HTC S710 Vox. The 5800 Fusion has currently only been released by Qwest, but it is also rumored to be released by Verizon Wireless within the next few months. The 5800 is a smartphone, which uses the newest Windows Mobile 6 Standard operating system, but unfortunately is lacking a touch-screen. The device is targeted to business professionals, which are looking for a full-featured Windows Mobile smartphone with an integrated QWERTY keypad that allows for easy text input.

The Retail Package includes the HTC 5800 Fusion smartphone, 1050 mAh Battery, Wall Charger, miniUSB Data Cable, Stereo Earbuds, miniUSB Splitter, 2.5mm Splitter/Adapter, Leather Carrying Pouch, Installation CD, and User Manual. The first splitter connects to the phones single miniUSB port, and splits it into 2 miniUSB ports. The second splitter also connects to the phones single miniUSB port and splits it into one 2.5mm headset jack and one miniUSB port. These accessories allow for maximum flexibility when you are required to connect several different devices to the phone at the same time.

I have had the fusion for 1 week and have been trying to give it a good test with in my first 30 days. I have been running it side by side with a smartphone on the t-mobile network. Here are is my assesment thus far. Battery life is horrible. I am testing with a data plan and the longest standby time I have received is near 10 hrs. I have made only 3 voice calls on it, so most of the testing is on the results of the data. I have tried to change the power management functions where emails only download every two hours rather than 15 min, and it does not seem to make a difference. The original charge on the battery was about 15 hrs and I let it drain down before recharging. If anyone has any ideas on how to improve the battery performance that would be great to hear. I have been impressed with the data deliverability, but I am very concerned with the battery performance.

hey man...u cant expect a phone to have a battery life span of more than 10 hrs when ur running apps. or programs and also receiving email at the same time...i mean come on...not even someone that knows everything about the phone and has an enterprise to run, would be on their phone for 10 hrs straight...and even if they did that is more than enough.

Now, do you know why Nokia selling numbers are so low? Do you think if Xiaomi, Lenovo and Huawei would sell phones with WP, will they be more succesful? So what is better choose a phone with Android or with WP?
