Yesterday, we reviewed the hardware side of the HTC Radar for T-Mobile. Today’s section of the review focuses on the music, speakers, and call quality of the phone.
The volume of the speakers is similar to the HD7, which unfortunately isn’t the loudest; but the Radar did see an improvement in sound quality. When listening through the Radar’s speakers, the sound isÂ less distorted than the HD7. The sound quality through wired headphones is also slightly better, but it doesn’t of course compare to the sound quality of the Zune.
The Radar features the Sound Enhancer app which all HTC phones come with, so you can play around with equalizers and sound settings as you please. Leaving it on the default SRS enhancement seems to work best however.
Call quality saw the greatest improvements in the Radar. One of the worst things about the HD7 was the low volume on the earpiece. The Radar fixes this, and sounds even clearer. Plus, the speakerphone is even louder, and picks up your voice perfectly. If you own the HD7, improved call quality would be a major reason to upgrade to the Radar.
Stay tuned for our Camera and Video Recording review coming up soon!
