HTC Touch Pro2 Review

Article Index

Conclusion

Windows Mobile-powered phones aren't what they once were. Hence, you'll find some users who love the OS and others who hate it. Regardless of your feelings towards the OS, it's important to look at the whole picture. All in all, the Touch Pro2 is good looking, solid, and well-functioning smartphone. In addition, HTC has taken the best parts of Windows Mobile and masked them with a snazzy and responsive interface that makes the phone easy and fun to use.

The Touch Pro2 may not be the ultra-thin or ultra-glamorous phone like the new iPhone, but it's still a very respectable device. The phone excels at calling and offers a number of useful features that are sure to keep the business user connected during the day. Although this is a business-minded phone at heart, it still offers a number of multimedia and fun features that are sure to keep you entertained at the airport as well.

 

The Touch Pro2 doesn't offer the same built-in customization options as an Android powered phone but this shouldn't be a problem for power users. In fact, it may be a benefit since you can download custom ROMs and other tweaks for the phone (at your own risk, of course). Combine this customization with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a tilt display, and you'll have a very likeable product, especially for those that like to fully customize their smartphones.
