HTC Ozone Review – Message-Ready Performer

The HTC Ozone is available through Verizon.
The HTC Ozone is a Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone that’s perfect for traveling abroad. It’s design is made for both the business exec sending out emails and the teenager texting 10 friends a minute, though the keyboard tends to be slightly cramped due to the slight change in design from the last HTC model.

Network too slow? No problem.

HTC’s Ozone comes with built-in WiFi, so if your bars are looking low, chances are there’s a coffee shop somewhere with free WiFi for you to still get your work done. Also, using WiFi allows you to save some cash if you don’t have an unlimited data plan. You can also save some time by sending that contact information to your coworker through Bluetooth rather than text or email (as long as you’re within each others Bluetooth range, of course).


Travel to 200+ countries with ease of mind

Thanks to Verizon’s handy dual GSM/CDMA support, the HTC Ozone can function in over 200 countries because of its pre-installed SIM card. With this, you can talk, text, and check your voicemail while also taking advantage of data functions such as email and browsing the Web.  Whether you’re in the Big Apple or the big Alps you’ll always know whether your stocks are surging or plunging.
Test before you buy for multimedia
It’s not a bad multimedia phone—it’s just not the best. It comes with a 2.0 megapixel camera which can capture both stills and video, but as most cell-savvy people know 2.0 is in the lower-tier for cell cameras nowadays.
You’ve also got Windows Media Player installed, which has it’s ups and downs but is overall a quality music and video player. Be wary if you enjoyed Verizon’s downloading and streaming of videos and music, as the HTC Ozone doesn’t support these features.
Overall
This is a decent phone but if you’re crazy about texting, emailing, and surfing the web then make sure you take advantage of Verizon’s 30-day trial period. The HTC Ozone has a battery talk life of just about five hours so always have an extra battery charging or a car charger handy.
