There are those few instances when a mobile handset comes my way and I honestly enjoy actually using it not merely for test purposes but on a personal level. The HTC Legend was one of such handsets. It’s designed to look good, feel good and function exactly the same way. Here’s a closer look.
Sticking, in part, to the traditional HTC design of the ‘chinned’ handset the Legend’s body is also constructed out of a single block of aluminum. This has its benefits when it comes to style but it does tend to make the handset a little hard to grip thanks to its smooth texture. A small portion of the rear pops out and a compartment has to be opened to access the battery, MicroSD and SIM card slots. Unfortunately this is not a hot swap option. HTC has gone with an optical track pad for navigation instead of a trackball like with the Hero. The 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display sports a 320 x 480 pixel resolution and multi-touch for most features. On one side are the volume/Zoom keys and a 3.5mm handsfree socket and screen lock button are located on the top with a micro USB port at the bottom.
Irrespective of the slightly slick surface, the Legend is a really good looking handset that makes a bold style statement in its aluminum casing.
Features and Performance
With its Qualcomm MSM 7227 600 MHz processor, the Legend runs Android v2.1 fairly smoothly. The only place I noticed a slight delay was in the music player. When flipping through songs, the track changed immediately with the name following a second or so later. Other than that, accessing any and all functions; be it customizing HTC’s Sense UI to your specific needs or switching to personalized desktops that you can create using the Personalization function it’s all good.
