The HTC 7 Pro is set to hit the market soon and bring the Windows Phone 7 operating systems to the masses, but before you decide to preorder yours, take a look at these pros and cons of the upcoming HTC 7 Pro smartphone.
Good: Full QWERTY SLIDER Keyboard
The physical smartphone keyboard is making a keyboard and the HTC 7 Pro Windows Phone 7 smartphone serves this feature up nicely. Not only does the HTC 7 Pro feature a QWERTY SLIDER keyboard for faster typing, texting, web browsing, and social networking, but it also features a tilting screen which makes typing with the physical keyboard even more ergonomic.
Bad: Battery Life
Although the HTC 7 Pro is packed with lots of nifty features, it comes at the price of very poor battery life. With only 288 minutes of talk time (less than 5 hours altogether) the battery of the HTC 7 Pro leaves a lot to be desired and will likely support less than 5 hours when playing games, browsing the web, running apps, and doing things that put more strain on the battery than talking.
Good: Windows Phone 7 OS
The Windows Phone 7 operating system is finally here and you’ll be able to take full advantage of its many features with the HTC 7 Pro smartphone. Windows Phone 7 features Windows Live Messenger, Zune, Netflix, and Xbox Live support, Windows Marketplace, Windows Live, Microsoft Office Mobile and lots of other nifty features that you’re are bound to love.
While the HTC 7 Pro’s screen has tilting going for it, it’s a bit small at 3.6 inches (800 x 480 pixels), looks a bit dull, and is overall one of the biggest features holding this awesome phone back. To be honest, the display of the HTC 7 Pro isn’t completely horrible, but when stacked up against its other features, the display of the HTC 7 Pro is definitely one of its worst features.
Good: Camera Quality
In addition to packing physical keyboard support and bringing Windows Phone 7 to the masses, the HTC 7 Pro also promises great photo stills and video capturing, with a 5 megapixel camera with automatic LED flash and 720p HD video recording.
The hardware of the HTC 7 Pro smartphone is good enough to get the job done, but when compared to most upcoming phones, it leaves a lot to be desired. The HTC 7 Pro features a 1GHz single core processor, 576 MB of RAM, 512 MB of ROM, ad 8GB of internal storage ‘” which is about half of what’s expected nowadays.
