HTC Snap

With their famous Touch series, HTC seem to have cut down on the production of less sophisticated devices, running Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, which are by far, not to be underestimated, especially when equipped with decent QWERTY keyboards. For an instance, the HTC S740 turned out to be a viable alternative to the Touch Pro, which is a side-sliding, hefty cell phone, not really comfortable to carry around in your pocket. The Snap is the first full QWERTY keyboard candy-bar handset that HTC have made since 2007 and the form factor has allowed the manufacturer to make the phone quite thin (12 mm), so you will not end up with your pocket bulging out too much, plus its black color makes the phone look even slimmer than it actually is. Aside from the handset, what you will also find in the box are: USB cable to connect the device to a PC that comes with adapter to quickly turn the cable into a charger, software CD, user guide and quite nicely looking earphones.

The keyboard has four rows with all keys having the same shape (except for the space button), convexity and they all lack enough travel. On the overall, we didn’t have any troubles typing things away, even with one hand, although we had to keep an eye on what we were punching in all the time, because we couldn’t make out what was the button we had just pressed. Keyboard might become a serious, vexing issue to people with thicker fingers, unlike the one the BlackBerry Bold comes equipped with. Still, we are pleased many keys sport pre-assigned shortcuts that allow fast access to, say, your messages or camera interface. The button that bears a small, green circle marking calls up your “Inner Circle” on screen, but we will tell you about this a bit later.  For Detail
