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.
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.
I have had the HTC slider type phones before when I had a touch 2 pro. I like the fact that you have a touch screen for surfing the web, looking at photos, or ease of moving on screen. I have never been a virtual keyboard phone, and always opt for the slide keyboards in my phones. The Touch 2 pro and the Tilt 2 give the user the best of both worlds here for a guy like me.
I definately prefer the Android operating systems over the windows based systems. The Androids give you more options, have more and increasing applications coming out all the time, and appear to always be growing and developing with improvements. I would convert my Tilt phone to the Android operating system if there were not some definate bugs that still need to be worked out of the system.
There are some draw backs to the HTC slider phones. The battery life can be somewhat short depending on your average usage. It has decent stand by time, but if you use the web, do significant texting, or run several applications the battery life will decrease significantly. The onboard storage is somewhat small for a phone with so many uses. If you utilize the available Micro memory card slot, it makes the lack of memory much less of a headache. It would be helpful to be able to place objects frequently used on the desktop, or at the beginning of the applications screens. But that is kind of minor if you don't mind surfing for the regularly used application.
One of the biggest benefits to this phone was the fact that it is a GSM phone, which you can now use on the Straight Talk network. The big guys like AT&T and Verizon now need to worry as the affordable networks are becoming more flexible. The phones as far as my use have been dependable and reliable in their overall use. And for what little I paid for the phone and for monthly service with this phone makes some of the drawbacks negligable. Overall I would rate this phone up toward the tops of phone brands that I have owned.
I bought this phone first for big high-quality screen, QWERTY-keyboard and Wi-Fi capability! Phone is enough fast for everyday tasks, it has Windows Mobile 6.5 OS and yeah it's not popular superOS Android, but I need only communication, it supports up to 32Gb memory with hot-pludge, easy to install and uninstall applications! New version of OS (6.5.3) is laggy, that's why I keep old version! Minuses - no software updates, no Flash Player 10.3, browser is medium, some minor lags with WM 6.5, horrible camera features (even my mom's phone with 2mpx no autofocus takes pictures way better), very cheap choice of apps via Market. With Android phone you can share your computer's internet with your phone (via USB), Windows Phones can't handle it...
P.S. I bought this phone for my friend, he's new with smartphones, it's good phone for his needs!
I bought the Htc Tilt 2 thinking it would be a great slider phone, and I assumed the windows marketplace would have a good selection of apps... I was wrong.
There were only 3 pros that I could find with this phone: The keyboard is very nice, probably one of the best phone keyboards I've ever used, the battery life is great, and the screen is huge and tilts, which is nice.
So onto the cons, after a couple hours of using it, I noticed that it was very slow. The time it takes for the letters to show up on the screen was not to bad, but it sure wasn't instant. An app's loading time would take a while and the internet, just forget it. Loading eBay.com took over a minute (with full wi-fi reception!) And the resistive screen makes pressing links impossible.
Next, you can't really customize much about this phone. The background can only be changed on the "home" tab. All other tabs on the touch-flo system keep the blue at&t logo background. You can move the tabs around on the touch-flo bar. But you can't move apps around (if you can find any worthwhile ones on the windows marketplace), so if you plan on using apps, have fun searching for them in a random order in the "app drawer" Customization might not matter much to many people, but I like to personalize my things.
Next, you have to be really good with resistive screens. Which as you can guess, I am not. The resistive screen gets very annoying when using the internet, pressing links is an endless annoyance. The zoom bar helps in this situation, but as stated before, the phone is a little slow, so you are going to have to wait another few seconds for it to load after zooming into the page to press a link. So the resistive screen is pretty much what ruined the phone for me.
This phone is absolutely mediocre compared to most other phones on the market. Any android phone is faster than this, and it's honestly the touch-flo system with every little thing running in the background, taking up all your ram and processing speeds. And you can only end apps that you have opened. As said before, the resistive screen is just annoying and horrible. I keep stating it because it gave me such a hard time with every little thing i wanted to go to on the phone.
