It’s a world phone, Responsive platform experience, Good calling quality
Good multimedia capabilities, Responsive touchscreen.
Solid first Windows Phone 7 smartphone for Verizon. World phone with GSM roaming. Great gaming and multimedia.
The HTC Trophy features a slim design and sharp display. The smartphone offers good call quality and some nice extras, including HTC Hub.
Great size and build, clear 3.8-inch display....
Wellbalanced performance, Highquality construction
Fast processor, fresh UI, nicely sized screen
Good allaround performer, Excellent build quality, WP7 OS handles the basics with style
Same exact model as before, Still pricey at $150
Network speeds are inconsistent, Hardware is a bit dated.
Usual Windows Phone 7 issues to be addressed in OS 7.5 Mango (no multitasking, etc.).
Camera quality isn't the best. The smartphone doesn't support North American 3G bands.
A little too much like the other WP7 phones to really stand out.Look and Feel...
Camera is nothing spectacular, No DLNA
No microSD card slot, fiddly/slow camera, no task manager
Average camera is poor in low light, Speaker is easily muffled, WP7 OS still immature

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...70
