Reviews Photokina 2010 - After being the first to bring a smartphone with the Google Android operating system onto the market, HTC also clearly shows the early experience with the Android platform in the latest models. Earlier, LetsGoMobile has had the pleasure to test the T-Mobile HTC G1, HTC Magic and the HTC Hero. The Android OS is very hot and every brand is joining up in order to also have Android in their portfolio. The possibilities, the design and the open character make the Android platform highly desired. What HTC also does very smartly and beautifully is adding their own layer on top of the operating system. This makes it not only an Android phone, but maintains it as a true HTC Smartphone, which makes it distinguishing.

HTC Legend Smartphone review
The HTC Legendís retail package is very compact, which we often see in HTC; there is a type of drawer in which the Smartphone is placed. The HTC Legend sales package is entirely white, but the final commercial packaging includes specifications and pictures of the HTC Legend Smartphone. Underneath in the packaging, there are some accessories included. The front of the HTC Legend Smartphone is sleek and nicely designed. On the back of the Smartphone this look continues, only the digital camera has a black patch with holes around it, which I personally donít find fitting to the whole. Under the touchscreen there are only four keys found. All the way on the bottom there is also an optical joystick.

The HTC Legendís internal memory is 384MB. With the many multimedia functionalities and the 5.0 megapixel digital camera, this memory is filled up quickly. Luckily the memory can also be extended by a microSD / SDHC memory card. The HTC Legend Smartphone supports this memory card up to a maximum of 32GB. A disadvantage of the flash memory card is its location. Because the Smartphone is pretty much made up of one piece only, there is a small door underneath for the battery, which is also where the slot for the memory card is found. When you open the door, the battery comes out and the phone is switched off. It is thus not possible to quickly remove and replace the memory card.

The HTC Legend Smartphone has an integrated digital camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels. This way, you can capture your favorite moments anytime, anywhere. Because resolution is just one part of the package, we always test more aspects and make a test gallery of sample photos with each cell phone. The camera application can be started up by choosing camera in the menu. Additionally, it is also possible to create a direct access link in one of the start screens so that the camera can be accessed faster. Starting it up does not take too long: within two seconds you are ready to shoot.

With the HTC Legend, the market leader for Windows Mobile Smartphones shows that they are also excelling with Android. The new HTC Smartphone has a fine design and the aluminum body is very decent. Thanks to the Android operating system, you of course have access to all Google services, and contacts and agenda-items are synchronized effortlessly. The 5.0 megapixel digital camera ensures for nice photos under almost all circumstances. The internet is easy to access, not only thanks to a good browser, which also supports Flash, but also thanks to good and fast connection possibilities and a touch screen that reacts very well.
