    Equipment


    Box HTC Legend is made in the classic style of HTC. Similar boxes come with HD2 and Desire .
    image

    In the box were:
    • Communicator
    • Battery
    • 2 GB card
    • Charger
    • Usb cable
    • Wired headset
    • Disk
    • All sorts of manuals

    Not much, of course, not even a case (which was bundled with HD2). And there’s no question of a car holder.

    Appearance


    The first feeling that arises when you take Legend in your hand: "Wow!" The molded case, bright and juicy AMOLED screen do their job one hundred percent.

    The sensor grid, unlike HD2, is absolutely invisible, but it is. To make sure of this, just take a picture with the flash.

    On the front side is a capacitive AMOLED display with a diagonal of 3.2 ``.

    The speaker is covered by a grid, under it is a light indicator. To the right are the sensors.
    image

    Just below - the navigation keys: "Home", "Menu", "Back" and "Search". They are not sensory, the course is smooth. At some of the forums I heard the opinion that the combined keys "Back" and "Search" caused inconvenience in use. I did not have such a problem, everything is quite convenient.

    Below the keys is a trackball. Unlike Hero, in Legend it is optical. This is exactly what is installed in Desire. The trackball also acts as a physical key.

    At the top there is a 3.5 connector on the left, and an on / off button on the right.
    image

    At the bottom there is a microUsb connector and a microphone.
    image

    There are no buttons on the right side. The camera turns on programmatically. On the left side there is a “rocker” for volume control.
    image

    At the back is the camera, flash and speaker.

    Now a little about the bottom cover. Since the case is entirely made of aluminum, the battery, SIM card and flash card must be “charged” by opening the bottom cover. It is firmly fixed, the first time even had to exert a little force. Next, a special mount opens, after which the battery and cards are placed.

    Some photos in comparison with Samsung Spica, iPod nano. By the way, Android 2.1 was also installed on Spica, but in my subjective opinion, Legend is faster. Scrolling is smoother, and in general Spica is inferior.

    And just in the interior




    Since there were no accessories other than a headset in the kit, a Brando C case and a Motorola P513 auto-charger were purchased for Legend .

    Conclusion


    Before buying, in front of me was a choice - Desire or Legend. And it was not even about money, but about convenience. As a result, I bought Legend and did not regret it. The screen is very convenient and the diagonal completely suits me, although I was afraid that it would not be enough. The battery obviously lives longer than in Desire. And in general, the device gives pleasure when you hold it. This is a really cool fashion phone. Well, a lot of materials have already been written about android and htc sense, so there is no point in writing about them.
