The HTC tilt 2 has a user friendly interface, the stylish sexy look makes you want to steal the phone if you don’t have money to buy it. It includes windows mobile 6.5 and mobile office suite. The call quality is excellent. Spacey buttons on the QWERTY keyboard give way to comfortable typing. The browsing experience is a bit let down and multimedia too was a little disappointing.It has a somewhat bad camera quality. It's a sleek candy bar phone, has a very stylish, attractive look. It has all the features that a smart phone should have. The phone’s screen slides out to reveal a full size QWERTY keyboard. The blue lighting on the keyboard gives you a calming effect when used in the dark and all the buttons are well illuminated. There is no 3.5mm jack but the phone does come in with an audio adapter which lets you plug in your favorite headphones or ear buds. The problem with this is that the adapter plugs in to the mini USB port on the bottom of the phone and it sticks out a bit so it can be a little painful to carry the phone with the headphones plugged in.The address book doesn’t have any entry limits but the storage limit on the memory of the phone will hold you back from entering more entries. Entries for address book include e-mail, IM screen name, birthday, spouse’s name and much more.
The caller ID feature allows you to pair a contact with his picture his face flashes when he calls you, same applies for a caller group and you can assign a contact with a separate ringtone which will give you the idea about who is calling by the sound of the ringtone. The phone comes bundled with audio adapter, software CD, an extra stylus, USB cable and reference material. The phone is a quad band phone and offers quad band world roaming, speed dial, smart dialing, three way calling and voice commands.
Another thing that was quite pleasing was the call quality. The call quality was excellent and both parties could hear the voice quite clearly. The voice is crystal clear and adequately loud too. Some disturbances were prominent while using the speakerphone but the handset mode doesn’t have such problems. The handset mode cancelled out the disturbances the callers voice was clearly audible.
The phone is powered by 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7201A processor, and has 32 GB of expandable memory and 512 MB on ROM/288 MB of ram. It has a 1,500mAh lithium ion battery with a rated talk time of 8.5 hours and up to 20 days of standby time. But the phone battery drained out in about 7.25 hours in our tests and fell short of the rated time talk. The phone has Bluetooth included and you can use wireless bluetooth headsets with this device.
HTC phones have always stood out by their looks and its huge touch screen. HTC were the among the first ones to make touch screen phones in the market, they have still managed to hold the customer attention even though there are new players now making touch screen phones, this shows that HTC are quite good at their game. The HTC tilt2 is a phone that is recommended for business people who need to access email, and edit documents on the go. While the product is quite good for the 20s something generation, the horrendous camera quality and the disappointing multimedia is the only thing that holds us back from recommending to them. Apart from multimedia and camera, a good phone by HTC.
htc tilt (touchpro) 2 is definitely a phone worth owning. i have had other touchscreen phones and the screens were marginal. the screen here is pretty good quality compared to them, almost as good as iphone. but in addition to the touchscreen, the slide-out keypad makes this phone easier to use if serious business must be attended to. this is aided by it coming with a suite of microsoft office mobile and has adobe reader le, although i would not want to actually have to use it hardcore for typing something, or, heaven forbid, having to do an excel project on it.
contact management is good, although i would prefer if i could have the option to see the sim contacts and phone contacts on separate lists and could then show only one or the other. contact list also integrates all information about a single contact into their profile. simply going to an individual then allows the user to send them a text/email/voice message, call them, or access their facebook page.
the htc music player and windows media player both work well and load quickly, but are kind of pointless because there is no headphone jack. does support (stereo) bluetooth headset, which can be used for music playing and phoning. photos/video are clear and sharp on the screen.
messaging system is great, and allows for integration of email accounts into the phone so that they are visible in their respective inboxes on the phone. also, able to use microsoft activesync and keep the phone synchronized with the computer and vice versa. however, it does not come with any instant messaging client loaded already (but does have a facebook app).
camera is a little over 3mp, would be amazing quality 8 years ago. pictures aren't grainy on the screen and when uploaded to computer, are still decent as long as not supersized. but it would be nice to have a flash for nighttime photo ops as well. microsd slot (and it being able to used msdhc cards) does make it quite useful anyway for storing what photos can be taken as well as any other media or files. can also be connected to pc and used as an external hard drive.
the wireless connections all work fine and deliver good performance as long as they're given the network to perform on. on board wifi is a huge plus and adds to making the phone be a micro computer. ability to turn phone completely to "airplane mode" or turn on only certain wireless communications also is a great feature, especially with helping conserve battery life. battery life too is not bad, especially for this level of phone. can get it to last ~2 days or even more even with use of phone as well as texting and media usage.
overall, tilt 2 is a good phone to have, especially if moving up to smart phone territory. but unless someone simply wants to spend the extra money or does a lot of time away from primary source of internet, it's better by far to buy phone outright and avoid the mandatory $30/month for 2 years (not including overages/taxes, adds up to ~3x what they usually sell for here on ebay) data package that at&t forces on anyone who buys it as an upgrade or through them.
I love almost everything. From his slide keyboard to his perfect design. It has everything to go!. GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-fi, 3G+, G-sensor, etc. It is comfortable to use and there is a lot of OS to this phone. From Android to modified windows. I use this phone to: read pdf; modify and create word, ppt and excel documents. I have sincronized with my pc with outlook. There is a program to see the phone screen in your desktop screen! (MyMobil or something). Also, I can use it like a pendrive (I put it a 8gb, so It is really helpful and easy to use), like a modem or in ActiveSync mode. You don't need any driver or iTune software to use this phone. When you have Vista on your notebook, you can automaticly use this phone like a modem and give internet to your laptop!!! With a 3G+ connection!! It brings 2 speakers I think, so the sound it's really amazing. It has a very decent resolution (480x800 in 65.536 colours) Nice RAM to and obviously it brings multi-task. You can edit the windows interface like hundred of times. You can plug it in to your television with the right adaptator. I have Garmin, but you can use Tomtom, CoPilot or whatever software to squeeze the gps functions.
Did you hear about the new IPHONE 4? ...
This phone already bring all of that but more. The only things that make it human and not perfect is that it doesn't bring FLASH to his 3.2mp high res camera, do not bring "brújula" and the touch interface is not so fast like the iphone. There is a version with two cameras, one 3.2 mp on the back and one VGA cam on the face of the phone (just like the recent discover from apple xD). But I will not use it by now here in my country.
HTC is the name of the experience when you talk about smartphones.
Concluding, is a REALLY HANDY NETBOOK.
Sorry for my english, I'm from Santiago of Chile. Here we talk spanish (casetllano) =D
Writed with my HTC TILT 2 to USA (Rhodium to Europe, Touch Pro 2 to Latinoamérica)
I hope you like it :)
This is a nice phone for the persons that like to tweak or make changes to registry or even you can download free software that make it betters. I liked this kind of product over the years because the posibilities that I have on this phone but the first time I need to spend almost a day making changes to registry and deleting bloatware and then I have the perfect phone.
This is a resistive touch screen not capacitive, doesnt have multitouch.
The screen works pretty good with good response, YouTube application works awesome but after you do some registry changes.
Opera browser do very good job also the Internet Explorer works good and support Flash.
There are tons of free applications http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/
The phone has very nice speakerphone and sound quality.
The screen resolution is excellent and the image quality too.
The phone is a bit heavy but is acceptable.
You need to keep the internal memory with enough space because if you like to have open a lot of applications on the same time the phone becomes unresponsive and very slow and you need to do a soft reset. The HTC Sense (HTC TouchFlo3D) software takes a lot of memory and eats a lot of memory when using but is a very nice software. You can disabled on Setting and Today if you don't like it.
The GPS works very good out of the box but againg you need to tweak it to achieve better performance.
The camera has nice quality not excellent but is very useful, has autofocus and GPS Photo, etc. The performance is slow and the video quality is not that good. You need to be patience.
Overall is an excellent phone but you need to modify the registry to achieve the best performance, if you have time and patience this is the perfect phone for you if not then this phone is not recommended for you and there are a lot of brands and phones for your needs.
Thanks for reading.
When you are constantly being told the iPhone, Blackberry, and/or Droid are the leading phones to own it’s no wonder why when I take my phone out to make a call or do the other tasks I’m capable of, do people around ask, “What phone is that?” and that’s when I have the little fun instilling just a drop of buyer’s remorse. The Tilt2 is a fantastic phone for the all in one seeker. Its part business, part social network, part multimedia, and all around a fun phone that will keep you occupied when the time calls for it. All communications are available, including wifi, so even if the signal is not that great I can find a wifi hotspot and keep my data connection strong. If you don’t fancy Bluetooth ear pieces like me, the new speakerphone is incredible. One of the loudest I have heard on a Smartphone. HTC increased the screen size on the Tilt2 and implemented a better touch screen, making it easier to maneuver around Windows, websites, and anything else. I can scroll through my company’s email, my personal email, and stay in touch on Facebook and twitter, on one screen. Your time management will increase significantly with that type of communication. Also keeping with the primary feature of the Tilt 1, when you slide the screen out you’ll have a large, easy to use keyboard to keep in touch. If you are like me and the little Blackberry keyboard or the touch screen keyboard makes you spend half the time hitting backspace because you hit the wrong letter, then the Tilt2 keyboard is what you are looking for in your next smartphone. The larger screen makes watching mobile movies more enjoyable, for those long commutes on city subways and flights across the country. I’m still adapting the phone into my everyday use as I learn new features or just have the time to make the adjustment. However the best addition since I purchased the Tilt2 is that it has removed two bulky items from my pocket; my mp3 player and my office phone. I recommend this phone to everyone, there is a lot to it and it might not be a one button solution to all multimedia needs like the iPhone, however this isn’t a multimedia phone. This is a smart phone.
