HTC Radar Review by PhoneArena
The folks at phonearena.com were impressed with the unibody design and display
Regarding the display : vibrant colours, solid viewing angles and good levels of responsiveness. Outdoor viewing is on the whole good as are brightness and contrast levels…The HTC Radar comes equipped with a 5MP autofocus camera with a single LED flash. Despite this sounding lackluster, we’re pleased to see an f2.2 aperture on the HTC Radar’s lens and the inclusion of touch to focus capture as well as a range of modes such as panorama, burst shot, face detection and effects….Photos taken on the handset offer a good level of detail for the most part, and while with the HTC Trophy and the HTC HD7 autofocus was hit and miss, HTC have managed to iron out any kinks. Color reproduction is accurate for the most part, if slightly dull….720p HD video performs well overall. Videos captured on the HTC Radar also play back pretty smoothly and should suffice for most day to day needs…Thanks to HTC, you can also rent films on the go through their Watch service which allows you to download movies straight to your phone while taking full advantage of the audio enhancements…Call quality on the HTC Radar is great. Tones are clear and accurately reproduced and there are no issues with regards to either volume or clarity..The HTC Radar is all the Trophy was and then some…
Good video recording quality
Immature OS with limited app support
Few noteworth differences between this and the HTC 7 Trophy
HTC Radar Review by CNET

The HTC Radar looks like a neat little mobile, both in terms of hardware and design. It’s not likely to set the world on fire, but then we’re hoping it’ll be cheaper than bigger smart phones…We didn’t find anything particularly striking about the Radar, either good or bad. We suspect its success will depend on whether Windows Phone Mango can improve the number of apps it offers to compete with its iPhone and Android rivals. If the operating system itself starts to look tempting, the Radar feels like a decent little mobile, which hopefully won’t cost you the Earth.
Mango means multi-tasking
Hopefully won’t be too expensive
Windows Phone not as popular as iOS or Android
Might be too bulky for some
HTC Radar Review ( or probably a run-through of the specs )
HTC Radar review : Now this is the kind of name we’re impressed by
According to techradar the HTC Radar is nice but not worth it when you can get Android devices ( which are better according to them -_- ) for the same price.
the HTC Radar has a 5MP camera with 28mm lens, and like the Titan and the HTC Evo 3D, an f/2.2 aperture for lower-light photos. A single LED flash will help take night snaps, but lacks the brightness the dual-LED-toting Titan manages…There’s ‘only’ a 1GHz processor on board here, but to our eyes we couldn’t spot much of a difference between it and the Titan, which has 50% more processing grunt inside, when it came to navigating between apps…So, what do we make of the superbly-monikered HTC Radar? Well, it feels premium, if a little chunky. It has a nicer design than the HTC Titan, and the aluminium chassis sits well in the hand…But it’s no stunner, and with that you’d have to question why anyone would go for the Windows Phone device ahead of the plethora of better-specified Android handsets on the market with a similar price point. They have more apps, better cameras, widgets, sleeker designs… Windows Phone is a cool OS and the Live Tiles are definitely a different take on the home screen idea, but we need better hardware that either drips with style or comes in at a very cheap price point – and the HTC Radar doesn’t seem to be either of these.
So have any of our readers have got the Radar ? What do you guys think of it ?
