Photo finish

Like the Trophy it also offers 720p HD video but unlike the Trophy, there’s a much bigger jump in quality between the HD and standard VGA resolution – though why the camera automatically defaults to VGA, I’ve no idea.

HTC 7 Mozart

Sound option for the image conscious?

It’s the best camera I’ve seen on an HTC handset so far, but there are models from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and LG which beat it for quality and range of features. Battery life didn’t appear to be any better than the Trophy, delivering a little under a day of prolonged use.

Verdict

Similar in many ways to the Trophy, the HTC 7 Mozart offers one of HTC’s better cameras and comes in a classy if cold aluminium body. It’s up there with the rest of the uniformly fine WinPho 7 handsets, but with little else to distinguish it, chances are your decision to go with it will depend on whether or not you’re an Orange customer. ®
