  • Goodquality screen, Excellent sound quality
  • No backwards compatibility for apps, 8GB of internal stoage is not expandable, SharePoint Server 2010 required for optimum mobile data access
  • The HTC 7 Trophy represents good value for money if you want to give Windows Phone 7 a try. However, if you don't have support at the corporate level you may find you need to move some existing services (contacts and calendar) to the cloud for synchron

  • Well designed; good OS; compact and light
  • No MicroSD card slot; disappointing camera zoom, Rating:
  • The Trophy is a strong offering from HTC that uses a good operating system as the basis for a well-designed handset. However, the lack of a MicroSD card slot to increase the 8GB built-in memory and the poor zoom on the camera let down what is otherwis...

  • Sharp, colourful display; lightning-fast; decent camera; reassuringly weighty
  • Very similar to other Windows Phone 7 mobiles; not many apps in the app store yet
  • The HTC 7 Trophy is a perfectly good choice if you want to take advantage of Microsoft's nifty Windows Phone 7 operating system. It doesn't really stand out among the other handsets running the operating system, though....

  • Slim softtouch bodywork, fantastic touchscreen, slick OS
  • Only 8GB memory, no DLNA
  • In the past we’ve complained that Windows Phone 7 devices are all a bit samey, thanks to the platform’s minimum spec requirements, but all it has really done is to zap the potential for any runts. Once more powerful processors are released, they’ll sta...

  • We feel that interest in the HTC 7 Trophy will mainly hinge on whether or not you have an Xbox and play online regularly. If not then you might want to check out one of the other HTC Windows Phone 7 phones instead. That said the HTC 7 Trophy is a decen...
