Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy touch screen, much better when typing e-mail or text as Blackberry only let you see a couple of lines of text, so easy to lose thread when composing a long mail/text.
Easy to set up even for exchange server mail, much better again than Blackberry who haven't moved forward but have moved sideways in their own direction.
Android much better than Windows for phone use.
Overall a brilliant phone especially with aluminium case. Looks the biz!
Bad points:
Powers down to save battery life. Bit of a pain having to press power button again to bring it back to life before accessing apps. Blackberry never had to do this.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I love the design, very striking phone. HTC Sense interface is smooth and seamless. Never had any problems with this phone so far and it blows my previous phone away with all it's features. Fits perfectly in my hand.
Bad points:
Battery life could be better. Speakers seem kind of harsh, music sounded so much better on my previous phone.

Bad points:
Do not buy HTC. My phone as gone wrong 4 times. Every time it gets send back to HTC is comes back with the same list of faults which they seem to be unable to repair. They still refuse to replace it with a new phone. Customer service is terrible. Avoid at all costs.

Dan, Halmstad, Sweden Basic text and chat user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Absolutely full of features, and along with the Android Market which provides hundreds of free apps, allows the phone to do almost anything you can imagine.
The design looks very good.
I would say in every department with the exception of music playback, the HTC Legend beats the iPhone hands down.
Bad points:
No front facing camera
Occasionally for no obvious reason, the firmware slows down a little bit, but then as fast as it happened, it will speed up again.
Battery life isnt so great, if you use the phone more than a couple of times in the day then expect to charge it every night.

Mobile Phone Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The sleek unibody design with a brilliant AMOLED display and a brushed metallic finish, feels great in your hand and stirs admiration from those around. Along with powerful social networking, group communication, and unmatched level of personalization, the HTC Legend is set to impress you.

Make It Mine
The HTC Legend raises personalization to a whole new altitude. An expanded selection of widgets brings more live content to the surface, for your instant enjoyment. There is even an online widget library, so no matter what your personality, there is content to help you get more out of your phone.

Stay Close
The HTC Legend builds on the tradition of designing our phones to focus more on WHO we communicate with, rather than the tools used, like email, SMS or calls.
The HTC Legend excels at helping you stay in touch with the different circles of friends or colleagues in your life. The new People widget lets you bring any group you create on your phone right to the surface for easy access to calling, messaging, emailing them or simply checking up on their social networking updates.
The HTC Legend also simplifies the way you tend to all your social networks. With Friend Stream, the various interaction with your friends across multiple social networks, like Facebook®, Twitter™, and Flickr™ are brought into a single easy to follow stream of updates, photo posts, and shared links. Friend Stream also lets you shout out your thoughts or feelings with all your online friends with a single update that gets broadcast to both Facebook and Twitter.

Discover the Unexpected
The HTC Legend is loaded with hidden little design touches that are sure to delight you. Like the ringer that knows when it has been heard. The ringer volume politely lowers when the G-sensor on your phone detects that the phone has been picked up, and it completely silences when you flip the phone
upside down.
Now you can use a cool phone while keeping your work email and other information safe. The HTC Legend has enhanced support for Exchange security features such as password protection and remote data wipe. You can easily access your company’s global address book to contact someone whose details aren’t on your phone, and you can also set your Out of Office status right from your phone.
Browsing on the HTC Legend is a high fidelity experience. Adobe® Flash® support brings to life the vast video and gaming content of the Internet. Pinch to zoom controls make it extremely easy to zip around pages and take a closer look at text or images. Also, with just a tap and hold you can select text on a page and look it up in Wikipedia or have it converted into another language via Google’s translation tools.
