Windows Mobile 6.5 really swung for the fences with this one and they just cleared the top. This phone is considered the flagship device for the Windows Mobile 6.5 line. HTC has been making windows phones since smart phones were smart. Recently they’ve been divulging in the Android craze but their roots have always been with Windows. HTC decided to take the fastest processor available and pair it with the largest screen to create an enjoyable WinMo 6.5 experience.

WinMo over the years has fallen to crap status because of several issues. With the biggest issue being lag, WinMo has always been feature packed but if it takes you years to use any of those features are they worth using at all? HTC solves this problem by installing the Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor. This phone moves from tab to tab like butter but because of the beast from the Far East the battery life suffers. The gorgeous 4.3 inch screen doesn’t help either. If you are a fan of windows mobile (which I am) this is the phone to get, don’t waste your time or money with any other WinMo phone. Anything else will just turn you away from the OS even more.

Pros:
– Fast Processor
– Large Beautiful Screen
– Solid Construction
– Extensive Modding Community

Cons:
– Small Network
– Battery Life
– Small App Store
– Lack of Microsoft Support
