Editors Didn't Like

  • Not 4G compatible, Mediocre image quality
  • A bit thick at .61 inches, Buttons feel oddly sized and a bit strangely placed, Windows Phone 7 feels like it hasn’t been finely tuned yet, Single rearfacing mediocre camera
  • Windows Phone 7 still lacking some key features
  • Mediocre display, Windows Phone 7 still behind competition, Not a global phone
  • Windows Phone 7 doesn't seem ready, Thick and heavy, No 4G cellular data
  • Camera could be better, Multimedia sync didn’t work for us with no option to manually manage the device, WP7 has a lot of catching up to do with Android and iOS
  • The HTC Arrive's heavy and bulky body will weigh some people down, and it requires some pressure to slide open the keyboard. Its camera could be better, and we were hoping for 4G WiMax support
  • No 4G. Many screens don't work in landscape mode. So-so camera. Some audio won't play over Bluetooth headsets
  • Copy and paste is a hassle, Keyboard keys could be bigger
