Features

The Trophy's feature set is pretty much on par with today's smartphones. It has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and 8GB of internal storage. However, the quad-band world phone does not offer support for North American 3G bands, which is understandable since it was designed for the international markets.

Design

The Trophy doesn't have any distinctive features like the HTC Surround's slide-out speakers or the HTC HD7's extra-large display, but that's OK. We're big fans of the slim and solid design.

Right side

Microsoft requires all of its Windows Phone 7 handsets to have dedicated camera keys, which we like. The Trophy's is located on the right spine.

Picture quality

The smartphone's 5-megapixel camera struggled with shots taken indoors or in low-light situations. The included HTC Photo Enhancer app offers some effects that help brighten the photo.
