HTC 8525 Smartphone - [AT&T, Cingular]

 

This 8525 PDA-Smartphone replaces the previous 8125 model. It is most noted for its very responsive processor, rarely slowing down even when multiple programs are running. This compares favorably with the Motorola Q , the Blackjack and the Palm Treo 680

 

Form Factor & Function

  • Rounded design - an improvement on the 8125 this model replaces
  • Large Screen - makes browsing the web, emails, reading and working with Word Mobile documents very easy
  • Fast Processor - the mini cpu has doubled from 8125
  • Keyboard - slide out keyboard is easy to type on and does not loosen or wiggle. Much more user-friendly than the tiny keys on the Treo.
  • Amazing internet access speeds if in a 3G service area - EDGE service is slower.
  • Use as a modem for your computer while recieving calls.
  • Battery life is good considering the processor speed
  • WiFi capable - will use WiFi or EDGE or 3G (whichever is fastest) automatically.
  • The phone can be charged from either the USB cord or the supplied power cord.
  • Camera - clear resolutions for a camera phone with 2 MegaPixel
  • Used with bluetooth headset 2.0 - quite intuitive and picks up the signal instantly.
  • Scroll wheel is a huge plus - you will use this more than any other buttons.

Downside

  • Lack of internal memory - less than 32MB after the pre-installed programs are loaded.
  • No included carrying case (the 8125 case fits this phone).
  • A bit on the heavy side and is a little thick.
  • The camera is good only for still photos and outdoors - image quality suffers in moving targets and/or poor lighting.
  • Some reported problems with LCD screen cracking after short period of use.

 

Features

  • Excellant integration with my MS Exchange server for instant automatic email receiving.
  • Voice dialing - truly amazing.
  • Good quality microphone for recording notes or voice memo's when sending e-mails.
  • Uses Windows Mobile 5 and Express Mail - not as easy to use as Palm OS
  • Supports TomTom Navigator 5 GPS software for personal navigation capability.

 

Overall

Ths smartphone is faster, stronger, and smarter! than previous models, and has a few advantages over the other smartphones in its class including:

  • Treo 680 - (slower processor, no 3G service, poor quality camera)
  • Blackjack - slower processor, battery life not as good, keyboard is harder to use
  • Motorola Q - terrible battery life, slow processor, but it is larger and more expensive.
