T-Mobile HTC Radar 4G - 1st Impressions [Video]
T-Mobile released the HTC Radar just a few days ago and we've gotten our grubby little hands on a review unit. First impressions? This Windows Phone is nice.
The HTC Radar is deceptively large with its rounded edges and feels really good in the hand. If I had to compare the Radar's feel to another Windows Phone it would be closest to the Focus but with a smoother and lighter feel to it. The 3.8" WVGA screen is nice in both appearance and responsiveness.
Not sure if many will like the small storage capacity (with preloaded stuff only 6.12GB free) and the white/silver color pattern does take some getting used to. Personally and at no fault of the Radar, I don't like the color pattern. I would much rather have seen this phone in gun metal, black or even light gray.
Color preference asides, the HTC Radar makes a very nice impression. The new Windows Phone feels good in the hand, is solidly built, and zips along rather nicely. We've got the review unit for a few days, will take it out for a test drive and get a full review up shortly. If there's anything in particular you would like us to take note of, feel free to let us know in the comments. If it's possible, we'll add it to the review.
