HTC Radar with 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM

The HTC Radar is another smartphone in what seems like an everlasting line of smartphones from HTC. It is the latest phone to run Windows 7.5 for mobile and follows on from HTC’s Titan. Smartphones running Windows haven’t taken off yet, does the HTC Radar have the ability to change this?

HTC has mainly concentrated on smartphones running Google Android, however they are now broadening their horizons with Windows Phone. They released the HD7 last year, not the most popular phone but have now had another go with the HTC Radar and Titan.

The HTC Radar is the younger brother of the HTC Titan. It runs Windows Phone 7.5, also known as Mango. The Radar is a small-ish phone with a 3.8 inch touch screen display. The screen has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, not the greatest but the screen is quite vibrant.

The Radar is not the best looking phone on the market featuring a slightly boring aluminum fascia. The phone is not the slimmest phone either at 10.9mm thick. The phones full dimensions, 120.5mm x 61.5mm x 10.9m, make it a reasonably sized device.

HTC have gone with just the single 1GHz processor in the Radar with a lowly 512MB of RAM. The device isn’t the quickest when switching between apps but this is HTC’s first chance to get into Windows Phone. Apps like Facebook are not as seamlessly integrated as on the iPhone but the Radar is not a direct competitor to the iPhone and a class below. The tile interface used by the OS is a neat feature and runs quite smoothly.

The Radar has what is now considered a slightly below par camera at just 5 megapixels. It has a single LED flash with the camera on the back. the front facing camera for video calling is nothing special and is a standard VGA camera. The Radar’s back facing camera is capable of HD video recording, not full HD but 720p.

HTC claim that you can get 535 hours of time from the battery on standby. The Radar has a 1520mAh battery which is decent considering it is single core.

In terms of apps, as you would expect Microsoft have offered the renowned Microsoft Office. With Word, PowerPoint and Excel you can carry your office around with you. However at first glances it looks like presentations can only be viewed in PowerPoint, not created. word and Excel work fine on the other hand. Apps are pricey in general but that is likely to change as Windows Phone gets more and more popular. A nice feature is the ability to try out apps before buying them.

Overall the HTC Radar is a solid handset with many good features – battery, screen size, camera etc. The Radar isn’t up to scratch when it comes to the integration of Windows Phone, maybe it will be better to wait for the ‘next crop’ of Windows running smartphones.

When I choose a minor which can be creative writing or film studies, I’m having a hard time because I want to pursue a career as a screenwriter for film as a secondary job for myself, but wouldn’t Creative Writing help me with that?.
