HTC P4000 Mogul review

6.5/10 AVG.
RATING



6.5/10
Informr score
The HTC P4000 Mogul currently has an Informr score of 6.5 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 79 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The HTC P4000 Mogul (also known as the Titan) is a dual band CDMA pocket PC with EVDO support. It features Windows Mobile 5 Pro including Microsoft's push email technology, microSD memory card slot, and a 2.8 million color high-resolution touch screen. The HTC P4000 is touted as the new replacement for the UTStarcom 6700 with many exciting upgrades and improvements. For instance, the keyboard is spring loaded so now when you open or close the unit it snaps tightly in place and stays quite well. The keys also have a new rubbery texture, which gives them a more comfortable feel. The keys are actually smaller than the 6700 but most will find them easier to use. The scroll wheel in the HTC P4000 is a "real" scroll wheel as it spins continually 360 degrees, and you can push it in to register an action and if there are no applications open, it can also be used as a start menu button.

Access to vital business tools including data, internet and email services are some of the benefits you can enjoy with the HTC P4000. It also features a 2-megapixel high-resolution digital camera with video capture and playback, and Bluetooth support for accessories such as wireless headsets, hands-free car kits and can even be used as a wireless modem. Users will enjoy the screen as it is a QVGA (320x240) 65,000 colours providing great displays. When watching video you will see that the picture is exceptionally sharp and clear. However, when viewing outdoors the quality suffers as the direct sunlight plays havoc with the transflective screen.

The HTC P4000 Mogul is designed for the heavy mobile data user who is constantly on the go but needs to stay connected. The enhanced access to business and personal data lets the user take their office on the road. Overall, as an upgrade to the 6700, the P4000 makes some definite improvements. If you are someone who has been considering going to a CDMA, you should take a good look at the P4000.

A fine device for business users

from MobileBurn

While it is not the perfect device for Joe Consumer, the HTC Mogul on Sprint is a fine device for business users and those that just require a bit more computing power than what is offered by non-smartphone devices.

The Mogul's combination of speedy EV-DO and WiFi connectivity, along with its large display and QWERTY keyboard, make for a do-anything device that is worthy of your consideration. While I consider HTC's own T-Mobile Wing to be a bit more consumer friendly, there are few devices on the market today that can compare with the Mogul when it comes to getting down to business. It isn't quite the same as having your laptop with you, but it is as close as you can probably get in a device that fits in your pocket...

I give the HTC Mogul a "Highly Recommended" rating. It is solidly built, feature packed, and totally ready to get to work.

I loved the fact that it was a slide-out with a touchscreen. I like the touchscreen for surfing, but I needed the physical keyboard for texting and email. HTC really let me down with the physical keyboard. The keys become slightly unresponsive after a month. Then, you have to focus so much of your strength on a key to make it register that you may forget what you were typing in the first place. It's been a constant battle with this physical keyboard. I downloaded a free touchscreen keyboard to help (EzInput). I will never buy another HTC phone. I gave it two stars for being cute and because I feel attached to it after two years. Less

I bought this phone as a first step into using smartphones, PDA, etc. and was immediately disappointed. I had several hardware issues over the year I used it. With the earpiece failing, bluetooth capabilities failing, and the SD card failing. I am still not sure where it sent the pictures I took over the last 3 months, and syncing it to my laptop was a popup-filled, half-a***d, nightmare. If I hadn't invested so much into it, financially and time-wise, I might've gotten rid of it much sooner. As a phone, it was also terrible, with the OS often locking up and dropping all calls without notice. Talking on it took some getting used to, but was tolerable. Less

This Phone is Garbage

I bought this phone about a year ago. I didn't care for the touch screen which you couldn't see because of the glare in the sunlight.

I bought this phone about a year ago. I didn't care for the touch screen which you couldn't see because of the glare in the sunlight. It never worked properly from day one - it would freeze up constantly, calls & texts were missed when it was in sleep mode, and weekly I had to remove the battery to reboot. I got a new phone. However my daughter thought it was my lack of "techy" skill, so she took this phone over and within the same year, it is doing all the things it did to me, plus it now shuts itself down, goes into sleep mode and won't wake up, and the keyboard no longer works! (No it is not the battery). To top it off, she was forced to get a data plan she never uses! It does have alot of cool functions, but it never stays working long enough to use any of them. Get a Blackberry - far more reliable! Less

Forced data plan unnecessarily limits value

Needed a smart phone for syncing to outlook, using my home and office wifi to occasionally receive email. Have no need of direct internet connection. Verizon's insistence on forcing a $30.00 data plan, needed or not, with their smart phones soured the deal. Because the carrier insists some users pay for a plan they don't use, the phone in my case (and many others based on web accounts) is way overpriced. Less

I have owned this phone for over 4 months now and it has it's pros and cons. Pros-touch screen is fun, windows media like excel and word has made some conviences for me, calender helps make my life more organized, instant axcess to the internet is a great help in pinches. Cons-the phone likes to redial the last person you call on the touch screen if you don't lock it..annoying, I have been to the store twice for freezing issues, i suggest downloading a antivirus if you go online. Its a nice phone and the slide out is great with a full view screen. Cheap case scratches and buttons break. Comes with a cute pen. I suggest look for something better and newer. Less

Firmware upgrade fixed flaws

I have to agree with the folks who gave this phone a "less-than-exemplary" rating. My husband and I purchased this phone (one each) last year site unseen.

I have to agree with the folks who gave this phone a "less-than-exemplary" rating. My husband and I purchased this phone (one each) last year site unseen. Based on CNET and other YouTube reviews posted, we thought this is a great way to upgrade my husband from an ordinary phone to a PDA. I was also looking to upgrade from Palm Treo 650 to something else. I got tired of waiting for the new Treo so I gave in and bought this instead. We decided to buy the same phone so that I can better support him. I, myself, am a computer engineer. Here are my experiences: PROS 1) decent pda, synched with my Outlook fine, performs just like any MS Mobile 6.0+ device 2) nice keyboard layout. If you are a fan of SMS, this is a good pda for you. Keyboard is decent-sized. 3) camera is not bad but you have to watch the lighting; not bad for a 2MP camera 4) compact for what it is 5) good voice dial capability 6) good speed/shortcut buttons CONS 1) Battery drains fast. This thing is a power hog. You charge fully until 9pm. By 6am, battery is all but dead. And I did not get any calls overnight! 2) Delay in touchscreen apparent 3) You need to kill applications the lame way - go to the Applications icon and explicitly tap the option to "kill all apps" or the equivalent. 4) If bright outside, the screen is next to impossible to view. 5) If with Verizon, if you reset this phone, you have to call Verizon to put back the applications/service features in your contract. After struggling with Verizon Wireless about the multiple problems we were having and after venting that we would like to terminate our service with them, we were told to try a firmware upgrade with the idea that our complaints will be fixed by this download. I was skeptical but I figured, with all the problems with the phone, nothing else can possibly go wrong. I have to say that after download and reset, I immediately noticed a difference in performance and UI accessibility. Here are some of the improvements: 1) Battery drain gone. Improved power management with the battery icon on the top right, when clicked, leading the user to the Power Management app. 2) A new icon has been added to access the Running Programs and the ability to close the programs with 2 clicks. 3) Remote Desktop UI access added 4) Wi-Fi UI improved It took a year but finally, I think we hit the nail on the head. The battery lasts 3 days on standby. If you get an upgraded battery, the new power management update will last 7 + days on standby. But I have to still agree with posters that this is not for the casual user. Not for the faint of heart and not for the non-geeks, unfortunately. Less

Best cellphone I've had.

I bought this phone about a year ago and love it its the phone you can dream of. Now all my 4 brothers own one of them at my house they all love it. I cant really complaint about it exept for the price that is really high but its worth it.

I start to realize why so many people hate Micro$oft after I quit it. Yes, I worked there. They do NOT care customer and they live in their own world. I know they test their junky softwares using supper fast computers in "vacuum clean" condition and claim they will "work" in real world. I also blame myself being a software engineer for years and could not figure out how to use a PDA phone. Less

great phone

I had a Razor before this phone, and this phone simply blows that phone away. The phone takes a little time to figure out all the things it can do,(just about everything) when mastered it's unbelievable.

I've had a PDA phone since they came on the market. The more recent have been the Samsung i730 and now the HTC xv6800. I want my Samsung back. I gave it to my sister-in-law and wish I would have given her the xv6800. -Bad reception. I've had other internal antenna PDAs and this is worse by far. -Camera takes bad pictures (I know how to work it well) -Touch screen delayed response -Phone dial pad MUCH delayed response -Sound quality is so poor, both on speaker phone and on BT headset, not worth listening to. -Battery life is horrible. If left unplugged overnight, you have to charge before leaving. We've had two battery failures (battery buldges out) and the new battery when charged properly and used fully still doesn't hold a charge. I want my Samsung back! Less
