The radar proves once again that HTC is a fast troop. Hardly, Microsoft releases the latest version of its operating system, the Taiwan-based company has already an original Windows phone-7.5-Smartphone. With Microsoft and network operators have acted this time afloat: many Windows-phone-7 models purchased through T-Mobile and Vodafone could update very soon after the release to version 7.5. Such good support from already sold products increases the confidence that even the HTC radar enjoys full support.

Housing with surprises

Where’s probably rarely need the hardware. The unibody aluminum makes a very sturdy impression anyway. That is amazing, finally the radar with a price of just under 400 euros is placed considerably under top class spoiled by the luxury.

It is also surprising that under the rear plastic cover only the slot for the SIM card to be found, HTC has installed the battery firmly in the radar. For buyers who expect many years of use, that could be detrimental. For the present, it is an advantage: because without support for removing more space for the battery, when compared to similar sized HTC models trophy remains and Mozart offers the radar by almost 25 per cent more energy capacity.

This brought him, allegedly with an improved energy management, a typical endurance of 4:32 hours – its Windows phone predecessor trophy and Mozart were just less than four hours. Such a growth within a generation is rare.

The speed does not suffer from the radar thankfully long breath, responds very quickly on any input. Inherited from its predecessors, the newcomer has the slightly below-average quality of reception. Thanks to good acoustic radar in the readings reached the note overall still well. With the integrated rear speakers softly and squeezed sounds as soon as the device to watch a movie on the table. Here it helps side underneath a pen.

Debit and credit

Some details that we missed in version 7 of Windows phone, are still missing. There is no mass storage mode for PC connection, one looks in vain also a socket for a micro-SD card. The second point is mitigated by the available 6 GB of Flash storage and 25 GB SkyDrive online storage.

What remains is resolving proven 800 x 480 pixels, which are here on a 3.8-inch bright display typical for Windows phones. That is also the ordinary 5-megapixel camera equipped with LED Photo light in the right light. Interesting: Even a MP4 video in 1080 p HD format needed if enough disk space is available, not lower resolution down to be counted. The obviously fleet processor decodes such films and brings them to the view without any hitch.

The radar has become very attentive through Windows phone 7.5, so it can translate recorded QR codes in text via camera or recorded via microphone song name and artist to determine. The new operating system offers even a little speech: it took command after prolonged pressure on the Windows button in the test even by a user with a disgruntled, vernuschelter voice.

Other new features include group functions, which enable to inform several sports friends or work colleagues with a message. The change between the last used applications via so-called fast application switching, a prolonged pressure on the back button opens the selection. A pity that the keys below the display as sensors are designed, that you also like to time inadvertently raises.

Strong browser

The browser that is well equipped for the new HTML5 standard has improved. In addition he brings sites much faster to face – a comparison with the processor’s clock rate equal fast, older Windows phone 7 LG Optimus 7 certified dreieinhalbfache performance at the established Browsermark test the radar.

Give you have but on Flash support, here Microsoft seems with Apple to be agreed. Like the accessible even in the wide-format line to address. Also positive: If the internal browser once partout is insufficient, the radar can pass its Internet via tethering on up to five laptops and tablets (what is called Microsoft “Internet sharing”). Whether this works with network operator devices, remains to be seen. Before choosing this option, the own mobile contract data transfer costs and free volume should be checked in any case.

Competitive

The new Microsoft operating system is a good step further than his predecessor. And what did HTC with the radar from it, is amazing. The housing with usual good grab quality presents a fast and endurance Smarthone at a comparatively civil price.
