I feel bereft without it.Pocket-Lint90HTC Legend mobile phone review - Pocket-lintOverall the HTC Legend offers a user experience that is an absolute joy. From set-up to everyday use, it is intuitive, fun and engaging, making the Legend a serious contender for your hard-earned cash.GSM ArenaNot RatedHTC Legend review: A Hero becomes a Legend - GSMArIt took a little Magic and a Dream but Android eventually got a Hero to champion the OS. Now, the HTC Legend comes in an aluminum suit of armor to join the ranks of the Android army. So, is this knight in shining armor set to be the vanguard of the explosive growth of Android?rgbFilterNot RatedVirgin HTC Legend reviewUltimately, the Virgin HTC Legend is a great little phone and certainly one of the best Android phones in its price range currently on the market in Canada, especially for those new to smartphones. Sense is something that most people ‘get’ after playing with it for just a little while. Making Android usable to the general consumer is something that HTC has excelled at.

If you like the looks and form factor, the HTC One V is the heir apparent.When it was released, this was a very pretty, slick, and slow phone. It doesn't hold a candle to modern smartphones, but it's still pretty.Engadget Reader90April 1, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Perfect size to fit comfortably in your pocket. Full metal case means the phone is hard wearing, and has survived many drops and collisions. Great phone with a great platform.Engadget Reader80July 15, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80May 21, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80May 18, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80January 19, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90July 22, 2010Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've been looking a smart phones for awhile now. I was looking at the Iphone 3GS, but was reluctant as I hate itunes. I live in a windows environment and do all my email, calendar and contact management with Google. So an android phone is what drew my attention. Since buying the phone 3 weeks ago and using it. I love my HTC Legend, the ease of setup was amazing, just log into my google account and boom the phone was populated with all my contacts. As a newbie to the smart phone world I was nervous about going over on my data, but the widgets make turning off the data simple so I can make sure I only use data when I want. The HTC Sence UI is intutative, adding new widget and apps are simple. The selection of Apps is great, as an avid podcast listener I must shout out Google Listen, no need sync to a computer to have my podcast loaded. The things that keep it from a 10 out of 10 is I find that the battery life can really take a hit if you have the data or GPS on. Not having experience with smart phones this could be a problem. I personally do not turn on the GPS or Data so I get a day out of the battery with only using voice and listening to music/podcasts. The other problem that is limited in scope but effects me is that there is a glitch that does not allow the phone to show the correct time in the Atlantic time zone, I'm not sure if this is a HTC or Android problem but it's really annoying to someone on the East Coast of Canada. I'm hoping the promised Fro-yo upgrade will resolve this issue. Overall I give this phone high marks and have been recommending it to anyone who asks me what phone they should get.
