The Good The HTC Mozart boasts a sleek design with a solid, brushed aluminum body. The Windows Phone 7 device has surround-sound technology and an 8-megapixel camera.
The Bad No option for expanding memory. Camera quality is disappointing.
The Bottom Line The HTC Mozart is a beautifully designed Windows Phone 7 device that offers good performance, but fails to deliver on one of its hallmark features.
HTC Mozart (unlocked)
Editors' note: In this review, we'll focus on the HTC Mozart's design and performance. For more on its operating system, please read our full review of Windows Phone 7 and the HTC Trophy, which has a similar feature set.
Like the HTC Trophy, the HTC Mozart is a Windows Phone 7 device available in the European and Asian markets. It's another beautifully designed handset from HTC and includes many of the smartphone staples, such as a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, but has more of a multimedia focus with its surround-sound capabilities and an 8-megapixel camera. Unfortunately, the Mozart doesn't fully deliver in that department. Though the audio performance is great, the camera falls short with disappointing picture and video quality, which takes away some of the appeal of the device, especially when unlocked pricing starts at $500. If your priority is a good camera phone, we suggest taking a look at these top picks.
