The HTC 7 Trophy comes poised with all the necessary hardware to take advantage of this new OS and makes a good job of it, even if it doesn't offer anything that previous HTC hardware hasn't already.

Hardware Secrets

Solid and sturdy design, camera excellent in low light, no expansion slot

from Hardware Secrets

The Trophy is not the fastest or the most powerful phone in today’s market. It doesn’t have 4G support or a dual processor, but it is a solidly built phone that offers good all-around performance. Being smaller in size will be a plus to many users. Other pluses include the soft-touch finish and dedicated photo button which is useful for taking a quick picture. This phone uses Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 operating system, which is intuitive and easy to use. It is lacking in certain areas like full landscape support and flash support, but for the average user, these will not... Full review


Besides its world phone feature, there’s nothing else spectacular about it

from PhoneArena
Honestly, it’s rather disappointing to see that Verizon is recycling a previous model and making the Trophy as its launch Windows Phone 7 handset. Besides its world phone feature, there’s nothing spectacular to set it apart from the other recently released WP7 devices, but its $150 on-contract price makes it an even harder sell at this point. Unfortunately, this is the only solution available to customers who wish to experience WP7 – meaning, you’ll need to accept it for what it is... Full review

Verizon's first Windows Phone 7 device is not particularly impressive

from InfoSync
Verizon's first Windows Phone 7 device has an interesting interface and decent camera performance, but it's not a phone to end all phones. It's 3G, has a mediocre screen, lacking Internet browser, limited battery life, and call quality was not particularly impressive. At the end of the day, the recently released HTC Droid Incredible 2 striked us as a far better HTC phone for Verizon in this class. If you've been eagerly awaiting the HTC Trophy to arrive on The Network, and don't mind the issues we came across, we'll obviously not stop you from making a move. But you're hereby warned...

The HTC 7 Trophy is a winner after all

from PhoneArena

With solid specs, a nice rugged feel as well as solid performance across the board, the HTC 7 trophy delivers a great screen, great connectivity and great performance. Admittedly, the camera could be better and the screen bigger, however, we’d say the HTC 7 Trophy finds a good balance between price and performance. Alternatives to the HTC 7 Trophy include the HTC 7 Mozart for an 8MP camera with a Xenon flash on a very similarly specced device, the Motorola Defy for an Android phone that can take a bit of a bash here and there, or the Nokia C7 for a well-balanced Symbian alternati...

Comes poised with all the necessary hardware to take advantage of this new OS and makes a good job of it

from MobileBurn

One of a handful of new Windows Phone 7 devices, the HTC 7 Trophy is probably the WP7 equivalent of the HTC Desire, in that it has a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, and similarly sized WVGA display. It's touted as the gaming handset of HTC's WP7 lineup, with a slightly larger screen than the Mozart, but a lower resolution camera. In reality, the two handsets' specifications are very similar, with the main difference being the pixel count of their cameras.

The Trophy's hardware is an overall nice package, but I found it annoying that there was no microSD card slot on-board to all... Full review


Trophy is not the best smartphone on the market

from Engadget

It's not even the best Windows Phone 7 phone. To make matters worse, you'll often find the Trophy sitting side-by-side with the equivalently priced LG Optimus 7 when shopping for a new WP7 handset in Europe -- both are €49.90 on contract with Vodafone in Germany or free in the UK with monthly plans starting at £25 (our review unit is sold by Coolblue in The Netherlands for $499). And honestly, given our choice, we'd opt for the Optimus 7 given that it matches the Trophy spec-for-spec yet includes a better exclusive software suite, a beefier 1,500mAh battery, and double th...
