I have now been using my HTC Touch Pro for a good month and will share some of my experiences with this mobile. I have only had Sony Ericsson and Nokia before so I was a bit skeptical of switching to a Windows Mobile driven phone.
When I got the phone I liked the way it looked and the way it felt. The size is just about right in my opinion, it’s a bit thick but that was expected since this phone have a slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard it selves is good to type with and after a little practice I was writing sms and e-mails at a decent speed.
With the TouchFLO 3D system the home screen and the most used functions (contacts, sms, e-mail, calendar etc.) are very easy to use and navigate to. For the rest of the functions you need to open the well known start menu to access them (post about boosting the performance on TouchFLO 3D system).
I have tested the phone with 3G, HSPA and WLAN. All three works well without any issues. The battery life time is also quite well, I use my phone a lot and I often turn on functions like GPS, WLAN, BT etc.
Another cool thing is that you can download several themes to change the appearance on your home screen and menus. One of the themes you can install is Pointui and by searching the web I guess you can find many more.
You also find loads of free applications that you can install on the phone. A good place to find applications are at WM6Software.net. I have played around a bit with the GPS functionality and developed an application using this. I will add a post about it when I’m done.
I have experienced a few bugs on my phone. The worst one have appeared 2-3 times during this month and is that the screen is filled with white noise and it’s impossible to see anything on the screen. The only way to get the phone back to normal is to actually remove the battery and restart it. The second bug is that sometimes when I get an incoming call the display does not show me who is calling. This can be fixed by updating the firmware.
All in all I must say that this is a very good phone with a lot of nice features and you have the possibility to expand the features with applications and change the look and feel with themes.
