HTC Legend - A Powerful Yet Stylish Smartphone
The HTC Legend is a smartphone which combines appealing aesthetics with an impressive list of specifications. With key features including a 5 MP digital camera, Wi-Fi internet access, the HTC Sense UI and Android v2.1 OS, it certainly ticks all the boxes in terms of features.
The HTC Legend is constructed from an aluminium “unibody”. This is a single piece of brushed effect aluminium which gives the handset a look of sophistication and class as well as sturdy build quality. The handset has relatively compact dimensions, and is lightweight at 126 grams, so it will fit comfortably in a pocket or handbag.
Wi-Fi offers the fastest means of accessing the internet; however respectable speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps can be achieved via HSDPA in areas covered by 3G. Fans of social networking will love the FriendStream App which consolidates feeds from social networking sites and SMS messages and displays them on the same screen, sorted by contact rather than source. This essentially gives a timeline of updates and messages so you can see what that contact has been up to rather than check on each individual website. Android v2.1 (Eclair) is the OS of choice, and provides access to the android Market. This allows users to browse and download thousands of apps, similar to the Apple AppStore. This gives scope for endless possibilities with the HTC Legend.
Whether you are a photography enthusiast or simply a person who likes to take random snapshots, the HTC Legend has a versatile and powerful 5 MP digital camera. The pixel resolution of the camera is 2592x 1944, which results in good quality images, and the accompanying software allows more advanced photographers to alter various settings and customise the look of their pictures. The camera can also shoot video footage in quality of up to VGA. Pictures and videos can immediately be uploaded to a number of different websites and social networking profiles at a touch of the screen.
A very nice internal media player accommodates most of the common file formats of both music and video files. Alongside the standard internal storage, expandable storage is available in the form of a micro SD card slot. This can take a memory card with a capacity of up to 32GB which should be ample to store moist people’s digital music collections. As well as the media player, there is also a radio player and a selection of pre-installed games (as well as downloadable games from the Android Market) to keep users entertained.
The screen on the HTC Legend is a 3.2 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. This allows a dynamic means of navigating the UI with very little lag thanks to its 600 MHz Qualcomm processor. Also, the screen is great for watching video clips and viewing photos or content rich web pages thanks to its ability to display up to 16M colours within a pixel setup of 320x 480. An accelerometer sensor allows content to be viewed in both portrait and landscape forms by automatically rotating the contents of the screen based on the orientation of the phone.
Whether you are constantly browsing the web or taking spontaneous snapshots, or always talking and texting, the HTC Legend is ideal for anyone looking for a super stylish yet highly functional Android smartphone.
