The HTC Legend Is An Amazing Smartphone
Released in March 2010, the HTC Legend is an extremely versatile, premium Smartphone. It has an impressive range of features which make it not only a phone, but an effective still and video camera, portable media player and web browsing device.
The legend measures 112x56.3x11.5mm and weighs in at just 126 grams. Given its size, this is considered relatively lightweight, and this coupled with its slimline profile make the legend not only pocket friendly but is comfortable to hold and use. The handset is finished in silver so is an attractive phone.
Up to 16M colours can be displayed within a pixel setup of 320x480 pixels. This gives the 3.2 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen a very high level of display quality, which provides sharp and vibrant video playback via the internal media player. An optical trackpad offers an alternative means of navigating the Android user interface, and an auto-rotate function is included courtesy of a built in accelerometer sensor.
Vibration, MP3 and WAV ringtones are the available alert types with the HTC Legend, and by assigning music files of these formats as ringtones, users have the opportunity to customise their handset in order to hear the track of their choice any time the phone rings. Both a 3.5mm audio jack and a speaker phone system are provided in order to allow hands free communication.
As expected from a Smartphone of this calibre, an array of useful features is provided as standard. The media player is versatile, supporting a host of music and video file formats. Google search, Maps and Gmail can all be directly accessed via dedicated applications, as can YouTube and Google Talk. For productivity purposes, several useful features are included such as a document viewer, organiser and voice memo recorder.
Several connectivity methods are utilised by the HTC Legend to stay connected to both the internet and cellular networks on the go. Class 10 GPRS and class 10 EDGE provide the handset with its primary method of cellular network connection in areas with little or no 3G coverage. HSDPA provides an internet connection at speeds of up to 7.2 mega bytes per second in areas covered by 3G (alongside HSUPA at 2 mega bytes per second). Wi-Fi is utilised whenever a signal from a wireless internet router is detected. This provides an enhanced web browsing experience thanks to the faster connection it provides. Connection to compatible hardware such as other phones and computers is carried out by both Bluetooth and USB connections, so tasks such as file sharing can be carried out.
A 5 MP camera (2592x1944 pixel resolution) keeps budding photographers entertained. This provides high quality snapshots and video, and has an array of image enhancing features included in the camera’s software package. These ensure that taking high quality still images and video is a breeze.
HTC are definitely on to a winner with the Legend. Its unique aluminium unibody long with its impressive hardware and software are sure to impress all manner of mobile phone connoisseurs.
