HTC 7 Trophy smartphone (preview)

The HTC 7 Trophy is one of two HTC Windows Phone 7 smartphones to be available on launch day, offering a 3.8in SLCD display and a 5-megapixel camera.

Available exclusively through Vodafone in Australia, the HTC 7 Trophy is a Windows Phone 7 smartphone that offers a 3.8in SLCD display and a 5-megapixel camera that doubles as a HD video recorder.

The HTC 7 Trophy doesn't share the same unibody design as the otherwise very similar HTC 7 Mozart, or the HTC Desire HD, but it has a slightly larger display — 3.8in compared with the HTC 7 Mozart's 3.7in screen. Like all HTC phones that run the Windows Phone 7 operating system, the 7 Trophy comes with HTC Hub, a portal that provides access to a number of apps including weather, a photo enhancer, a sound enhancer, notes and stocks.

The HTC 7 Trophy is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and has 8GB of internal memory and 576MB of RAM. It weighs 140g. Like all Windows Phone 7 devices, it lacks external storage, so there is no microSD card slot for extra memory. It has a standard LED camera flash.

The HTC 7 Trophy also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor (gyroscope), an ambient light sensor and built-in GPS. It will be available exclusively through Vodafone in Australia from 21 October. Pricing is yet to be announced.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
