The Best and Worst Features of the HTC 7 Pro Smartphone

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.

Bad: Display

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.

Bad: Hardware

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.
