HTC Radar 4G Review
Just like what we enjoyed with the European model, calling quality is particularly robust thanks to its spot-on clarity and noise free audio quality. Again, we find its speakerphone quality to be similar, but its audio output is moderate at best.

In our time testing out the HTC Radar 4G, signal strength appears to be solid in high coverage areas – and it didn't drop any phone calls.

If you happen to be a chatterbox, you'll find the 9.8 hours of talk time we're able to get more than sufficient – though, it's shy of the 10 hours of talk rated by the manufacturer. Otherwise, its real-world battery performance is average, as we're able to get a solid one day of normal usage.


Conclusion:

For a good while there now, there wasn't anything particularly interesting out of the Windows Phone camp, but thankfully enough, the HTC Radar 4G comes off as being a good starting point for the new crop of Mango devices. Rather than coming to the table with something extravagant, it's blissfully one enticing handset for the price. In addition, its $99.99 on-contract price is remarkably warranted, but then again, you can still save up the money for something else bigger and better down the road.
