The HTC Surround has a very sturdy design and is rather hefty at 5.8 ounces.

Part of the reason for that extra weight is the built-in speakers. The tiny button at the top activates surround sound and though the audio sounded richer and fuller, we weren't impressed with the overall sound quality.

The HTC Surround offers a kickstand so you can place the phone on a desk and watch videos, listen to music, or whatever you please.

Unfortunately, picture quality wasn't the greatest. Though objects looked sharp, there was a bluish tint to the photo.
