HTC Touch Pro2 for Sprint full review
      #34477 - 09/08/09 05:23 PM

Sprint's flagship Windows Mobile Pro phone is here. Joining T-Mobile and eventually all carriers in the US, Sprint has upped the temptation to spend some serious bucks on a serious business phone with a decided fun side. The Touch Pro2 on Sprint delights us as just as much as the unlocked GSM and T-Mobile version did thanks to Sprint's fast EVDO data connection, the large 3.6" high resolution touch screen, capacious offset QWERTY slider keyboard and strong Office and Exchange support. Better yet, the Sprint version adds a 3.5mm stereo jack for those of you who don't think wired is tired.

I just picked up one of these and all I can say is wow. Normally, Qualcomm processors are dirt, but they seem to have really optimized this thing well. It blows the doors off my HTC Advantage 7501x (xScale 624mhz) and my HTC TTyN2 (Qualcomm 400mhz). It's REALLY fast.

Video playback is wayyyy better then I expected using CorePlayer.

Test Video
Size: 229mb
Codec: xvid
Resolution: 512x384
Bitrate: 1131kbps

Benchmark average was 105%!! Finally, a phone that can handle video. Time to load up some emulators and see how it handles them.

Biggest gripes for me so far;
- Reset button is behind rear case
- No D-Pad
- Keyboard slides out to the left instead of the right (which will probably mess up a few of my old apps, since they were designed to landscape to the right).
- Auto dimmer appears to have no manual override

Glad you're enjoying it-- it's definitely one of HTC's best products in the Windows Mobile space.

The auto dimmer does have a manual override. Go into All Settings, then power. There's a checkbox you can uncheck for auto-brightness.
