High performance access to file storage

The sound remains the same

Incidentally, HTC is pushing the Mozart as a music phone (clue’s in the name) but it doesn’t actually offer anything that you won’t find on the company’s other WinPho 7 handsets – same equalizer, same audio enhancements, and same syncing system.

Rather than the audio, it's really the camera that makes the difference

The headphones are so-so and you’ll benefit from upgrading them, but the sound is reasonably punchy, and the SRS function really does stretch out the soundstage, though it’s not really surround sound. It’s all good stuff, but you don’t need to buy a Mozart to get it.

The HTC 7 Mozart is an Orange exclusive though, so you get a few extras like the Orange Wednesdays cinema app, Orange Maps with turn-by-turn navigation and the Orange Daily news, sport and weather round-up. There’s also the Orange Selects section of the Windows Marketplace for more Orange-centric apps. From next year buying apps from the Marketplace will be chargeable to your Orange bill, with no need to register your credit card details.

Besides network, the main thing that differentiates the Mozart from the similar HTC Trophy is the 8Mp camera (the same as on the Desire HD; the Trophy has a 5Mp version). It’s not just the pixel count though, since the Mozart also has a xenon, rather than an LED flash, which is brighter, and provides better quality light. Otherwise, the feature count is the same, with autofocus, 6x digital zoom, a variety of scene modes, including macro, a few colour effects, flicker adjustment and metering mode.
