Introducing The HTC Mozart 7

By Mark Walters

Of the five smartphones offered by HTC that run Windows Phone 7, the Mozart may be the best looking one of the group. This is due primarily to a hip unibody aluminum case. The Mozart also has an 8 mega-pixel camera coupled with a Xenon flash. Many other phones in this category only have a 5 mega-pixel camera with an LED flash. The video and music download capabilities of the Zune software will be a big draw for many.

The HTC Mozart starts as a single block of aluminum which is carved into the phone's shape. The phone runs a 2 GHz Snapdragon chipset and a full 8GB of memory. There is an ample display area at 3.2 inches. Below this display are three backlit control buttons. Other buttons on the sides of the unit control the power, volume and camera. Those buttons are all in matte silver. Above the display is the earpiece concealed by a grille and on the top edge is the 3.5mm earphone jack.

HTC has equipped the Mozart with an 8 mega-pixel camera that has an auto-focus feature. This is a strong camera that out-modes many other smartphones in its class. Many other comparable phones are equipped with a 5 mega-pixel camera. This camera does fall short however in its ability to be adjusted. Settings like ISO, EV, sharpness and metering are not adjustable on this camera. The camera also can function as an HD camcorder; however there has been an issue with frame rate reduction in low light conditions.

If you are a music fan the HTC Mozart is the smartphone for you. It has excellent quality speakers with high-end technology known as SRS WOW HD, which enhances the sound quality in the form of virtual surround sound. The music + videos hub is powered by Zune, which can be used to get all the music and videos you need. If you already have favorites stored on another machine, simply sync the phone via wireless connection and you are ready to take your entertainment on the go.

The HTC 7 Mozart scores high points for aesthetics and style, and music lovers will find that this smartphone suits them well. The phone's fit and finish is top notch and it is fitted with high quality features and software. The 3.7-inch screen and 8 mega-pixel camera will give most of the smartphones on the market a run for their money. Although the camera may cause some concerns, at 8 mega-pixels it will still out perform many of the 5 mega-pixel competitors.
