HTC Snap CDMA Review
The HTC Snap performed good but not great on the phone end. Callers sounded loud and clear to us, but they said we only sounded so-so, rating us a 7 out of 10. Their biggest complaint was that we sounded distant and a bit tinny. The battery is a major selling point of the Snap, and HTC claims 4.6 hours of talk time and nearly two weeks of standby. In our tests we were able to get a beastly 5h51m of talk time, well above the stated time and downright fantastic for a Windows Mobile device.
We have a hard time figuring out where the Snap fits in Sprint’s lineup. Palm’s Treo Pro is a fairly recent device, and for $50 more offers both a better keypad and a touchscreen. The Samsung Ace has a similar form factor and feature set, while offering global roaming for $100 less. Had the Snap been global like the Ozone we could see it succeeding the Ace, but it’s not. Inner Circle is nice, but it’s not really a huge selling point. Combine all of this with a less than stellar feel and we have to say we don’t see the Snap doing too well.
