Spacious keyboard

The HTC Snap features a pretty easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard. There isn't a ton of spacing between the buttons, but the keys are a good size and have a nonslippery texture.

Inner Circle feature

The Alltel HTC Snap includes HTC's Inner Circle feature. By pressing the dedicated Inner Circle button (the last key on the keyboard's bottom row), the HTC Snap will bring e-mails from a preselected group of people to the top of your in-box so you can read and reply to them immediately.

Photo quality

Picture quality was quite impressive. Images were clear and colors were vibrant and rich, even though the photo was taken under harsh fluorescent lighting.
