Engadget Reviews HTC Radar

Engadget’s review of HTC Radar joins the long list of positive reviews for Windows Phone Mango devices from HTC. HTC Titan was well received by the reviewers and now HTC Radar is also joining the list. Its good to see that HTC has done a decent job in making these devices.

Engadget’s conclusion on HTC Radar:

With its smaller screen, slower CPU and lower-res camera, it was easy to overlook the Radar as it debuted alongside its larger, bulkier sibling, the HTC Titan. Even we were blinded by shock and awe, but after spending time with the little guy, we must say we’re quite smitten. Moreover, it’s going to be a tearful goodbye when we’re forced to send the little runt back home. Still, whether it’s the best phone for you is a different question entirely. If you find yourself in need of a removable battery or more than 8GB of storage, the Radar is out of the question. Its price on contract at T-Mobile is another unknown, but even if it debuts at $100, it’ll have a hard time delivering a compelling argument against LG’s G2x. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a Windows Phone and are undeterred by the Radar’s few shortcomings, its support for HSPA+ alone will make an excellent holiday gift for yourself or someone you wanna see smile.

PROS

Beautiful display

Top-notch build

HD camcorder with auto-focus

CONS

Sealed battery (the HTC Titan’s is removable)

Limited storage

Hit-or-miss software customization

BOTTOMLINE

If you’re undeterred by the Radar’s few limitations, it’s easily among the most satisfying Windows Phone devices on the market today.
