HTC Touch Pro2 for Sprint

The HTC Touch Pro2 offers Sprint's business customers a very powerful smartphone that's packed with features. The downside is that you'll pay a premium for it all. The Touch Pro2 goes for $349.99 with a two-year contract.

Features

The Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 offers a lot of the same features as the other versions, including HTC's Straight Talk Technology, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 3G support. It also supports a number of the carrier's services, such as Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV, and NFL Mobile Live.

Sprint vs. T-Mobile

The Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 is more similar in looks to the unlocked model rather than T-Mobile's version pictured here. The tapered edges give the smartphone a more streamlined look and we like the charcoal gray color.

3.5 millimeter headphone jack

One advantage that the Sprint model has over the others is the addition of a standard 3.5 millimeter jack. Now, you can plug in your favorite pair of headphones without having to use a cumbersome audio adapter.

Large and in charge

The Sprint Touch Pro2 is also actually just a hair shorter and lighter (4.56 inches tall by 2.33 inches wide by 0.68 inch thick and 6.3 ounces) than the T-Mobile Touch Pro2, but overall, this is still a very bulky device.

One of the best

The Touch Pro2's QWERTY keyboard is one of the best we've used to date. The roomy layout and large keys make it really comfortable to use and reduces mispresses.

World roaming

The Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 offers dual-mode functionality so it supports both CDMA and GSM technology and allows for international roaming. The carrier ships the smartphone with a SIM card, and the SIM card slot is located behind the battery.

Camera and speaker

On back, you'll find the 3.2-megapixel camera along with the speaker system and mute button. Like the other Touch Pro2 models, when you're on a call and place the phone screen side down on a flat surface, it will automatically activate the speakerphone.

Picture quality

We weren't particularly impressed with the picture quality. Though images were fairly sharp, there was a bit of a hazy effect and colors were quite dull.
