HTC Trophy Review
Last of the major domestic players to get into the game with Windows Phone 7, Verizon Wireless can now offer their customers the new experience in Microsoft’s platform with the HTC Trophy. Although it’s essentially a 6-month-old model at this point, its $149.99 on-contract price point is just a tad below the usual spot we find most high caliber smartphones at nowadays, but it’s also a world phone as well. Considering that this is Verizon's WP7 launch handset, let’s see if it can entice customers!
Somewhat of a bummer, there’s nothing special with the HTC Trophy since its design is an exact facsimile to the European version that we reviewed – though, it sports a red theme internally. Clearly, it doesn’t quite embody the eye catching industrial design that we associate with HTC’s stable.

From the looks of it, the handset retains its distinguishable 3.8” WVGA (480 x 800) Super LCD display with support for 16.7 million colors. Easily, it’s by far one of the better display panels we’ve seen in use with HTC’s line of WP7 smartphones, thanks to its sharp details and deep production of iridescent colors.
As for the rest of the device, we find everything else in its usual location on its side. In the rear, you have a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash and speaker grill. Meanwhile, removing its back cover offers access to its 1,300 mAh battery and SIM card slot.
