After having used the Arrive for a few days, we think you could make a convincing argument that it's the best Windows Phone 7 device currently available. Problem is, that's still not saying much when you look at what's currently out there.

U.S. Cellular's first Windows Phone 7 phone is a solid effort, although the HTC 7 Pro will disappoint those looking for a large, vibrant screen.

If you're already in to Windows Phone 7, this is a hot choice for you. It'll give you all the screen real-estate you'll want and allows you a physical keyboard ... A real winner in the hardware department.

There’s a lot we like about the HTC 7 Pro. Windows Phone 7 is a solid platform with plenty of promise, and while the third-party app selection pales in comparison to what Android and iOS offer, that’s not to say you won’t find the titles to suit you among the line-up.

The Arrive gets high marks all the way around from design to performance. Windows Phone 7 ran smoothly on the Arrive . The touch screen looks good and is nicely responsive to the touch; and the keyboard performance ranks among the best we've seen.

This is best smart phone that you can get on Sprint currently. It's battery life is reliable. The web browser is a smooth experience, and all the apps run smoothly. I had Samsung Android phone, and android has so many bugs, and android phones are not reliable. This phone has less features...

Not a bad phone (and it was the only Windows Phone w/ a physical keyboard available on Sprint at the time) but it is quickly showing its age.

The HTC Arrive is a great phone, here are strong points about it: - The overall design is extremely high quality. Because of the full slide-out keyboard it can seem heavy in the hand, but it is far from burdensome. Holding an Arrive and an Evo 4G I couldn't really tell the difference. I...

I really enjoy the phone and the unlimited data plan. Windows Phone 7 will hopefully gain traction with the public with the release of Mango.

I am a 2 phone guy, always have been, and I will be for the foreseeable future. In the past I always had a Blackberry and a xxxx. Over the years the xxxx phone transformed from a Windows Mobile device to a Palm Pre and finally landing on an Android device. This past spring I had to make a...

Thought this phone would be good. I now think this is very good hardware, and that the Windows Phone 7 OS is unmatched. Best phone I've ever had.
