Earlier this year, HTC and Microsoft released a Windows Phone 7 device on Verizon Wireless. Called the Trophy, this is the one and only phone presently on Verizon sporting the Windows Phone 7 interface. With all the hype about "Windows 8" and the...

The thing with Mango is that it's more improved than it is new. There are a lot of updates to its unloved predecessor Windows Phone 7, but not so many totally new features. On the plus side, the browser has been updated to Internet Explorer 9, and...

The Trophy is not the fastest or the most powerful phone in today’s market. It doesn’t have 4G support or a dual processor, but it is a solidly built phone that offers good all-around performance. Being smaller in size will be a plus to many...

For a $99 smartphone, the HTC Trophy is a good buy. It's $50 less expensive than the Droid Incredible 2, and we like its 5-MP camera, attractive interface, and solid build. You don't get a dual-core processor or multitasking (yet), but those...

HTC’s Trophy is one of the best Windows Phone 7 devices we’ve used to date. It’s definitely a device we would enjoy carrying around day to day hardware wise. Unfortunately, Windows Phone 7 is still lackluster when it comes to features...

The HTC 7 Trophy is truly a run of the mill Windows Phone 7 handset. It really is the bare minimum of what Windows Phone 7 handsets will be. One of the worries with Windows Phone 7 is that with each new handset that's released, it's harder and...

Honestly, it’s rather disappointing to see that Verizon is recycling a previous model and making the Trophy as its launch Windows Phone 7 handset. Besides its world phone feature, there’s nothing spectacular to set it apart from the other...

If you've been dying to try a Windows Phone 7 device on Verizon, the HTC Trophy is the first and only (for now!). It's a solid choice though, with HTC's pleasing styling and build quality, good speed and world GSM roaming capabilities. And...

A pretty new cell phone emerges for us to take a look at today, folks–it’s the HTC Trophy, and while we’ve heard a lot about the HTC Thunderbolt over the last few weeks since CES, the HTC Trophy is going to be a pretty potent player in...

Designed for the international markets, the HTC Trophy is a well-designed and solid-performing Windows smartphone, but unless you're looking for an unlocked phone, there are better, more-affordable options here in the...

Compared to its WinPho 7 brethren, the HTC Trophy doesn’t have a whole lot to help it stand out. However, it is a very fast and capable smartphone with good social networking facilities and its current Vodafone exclusive options are quite...

The 7 Trophy offers good value for money as long as you don't want to use its frankly mediocre audio output or camera. Everything else (web browsing, social networking and e-mail) about the phone works well, but you'll have to remember to charge...

We aren't yet convinced that Windows Phone 7 has what it takes to gain an edge on Android, iOS and RIM's operating system for BlackBerry. But Microsoft is certainly working hard on it - and the HTC 7 Trophy shows it off to good effect....

So the HTC 7 Trophy is a great phone, as is the whole HTC 7 range. This might be the least remarkable of the three options, but it is also very portable meaning it will certainly have its fans. Windows 7 meanwhile offers a very nice looking...

In the main, we were impressed with the Trophy. It's a decent handset to use although it has no wow features, but with understated style, solid build quality and the excellent WP7 operating system, we think HTC is onto a winner. HTC 7 Trophy...

As a handset, the HTC 7 Trophy is nicely made and sensibly styled as an attractive modern smartphone. It can be quite speedy in use. Running Windows Phone 7, it often has a slick and fluid interface that can trump Android phones. But we also...
