HTC S730 (O2 XDA Atmos) smartphone reviewed

rh_730_slider Register Hardware takes a gander at the S730 from HTC, also available on O2 as the XDA Atmos, and gave it a slightly above average score of 75 out of 100.

The S730’s keyboard won some big-time praise as “one of the best HTC keyboards we’ve used,” according to the review, and the device’s form factor is described as “chunky yet comfortable”.

Connectivity options include 3G HSDPA at 3.6Mb/second, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

The S730 got dinged for its slightly-sluggish 400MHz processor and 64MB of RAM, Home Screen UI quirkiness, and the fact that there’s no included hands-free kit — it must be purchased for £14.95. Also, the screen and battery life seem to be so-so.
