Even if nothing else can be said about the HTC S710, the device still has one distinct advantage over most Windows Mobile smartphones: if you are looking for a device with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, there really is no competition at the moment. Thankfully, HTC has not rested on its laurels and has instead produced a device that, while making a few mistakes, is overall wonderful to use.

While the keyboard could do with a little tweaking, and the lack of 3G data is surely a disappointment, almost every other facet of the S710 is marvelous. The large screen, sturdy construction, and above average numeric keypad help boost its rating, and the inclusion of a half decent camera and other media functionality is a boon. For a device like this, WiFi is almost a must, and with the exception of having to type your security key, the HTC S710 pulls it off like a champ.

After using the HTC S710, I can honestly say that there isn't anything about the device that is a deal breaker. I would suggest trialing the keyboard before laying down your hard-earned money on the device, but otherwise I would recommend this over any other non-touchscreen Windows Mobile device. When all is said and done, the S710 is a wonderful device, and even if there was competition for it right now, I think it would still be deserving of our highest rating.

Great Little Slide Phone - Elegant and functional piece that says all the right things about the owner. Not so great battery life - but comes with spare batt to slide in when necessary.

A smart phone with a slide-out keyboard isn't exactly a rarity these days, but this model stands out from its rivals because it doesn't have the girth of a Russian weightlifter. In fact, it's only marginally thicker than your average candybar handset. The other big news is that it runs the brand new version of Microsoft's mobile phone OS -- Windows Mobile 6. Less

This style of telephone is the one with which people say WOW! to you, has everything what a regular person can need. The quality and the desing is excellent. The sound, the screen, buttons and even the color is a TOTAL 10! Let me clear something, this is not the best in the world has is CONS, Like (a faster processor will be Excellent) but this one 201mhz Rocks! Maybe a better keyboard (like the one in Sidekick 3) for me is the best for MSN and TXT. But the one in the HTC s710 is good. In final words, the phone is Very compact, has a slide keyboard, windows mobile 6,Sync with Vista, Updates with windows, mp3, (I install skype, Gmail, games, Movies (in a 4gb memory) and works PERFECT! If I lost this one, I will buy it again! Last words Out. Less

Pro: Awesome phone features and Mobile 6 is very smooth operating system. Con: Tx9 predictive text, not used to it yet so not using it yet. A little heavy, but seems durable. Using experience: 6 days Purchased this phone based in part on the review here. I have had this phone for 6 days now, and use it on Edge, gprs and WiFi. Phone calls are excellent voice quality and reception. For internet I have used it instead of laptop quite well. Have listened to audio streaming of Russian radio stations, put four movies on micro SD car, and used PowerPoint to look at slide presentation. All work without a problem. I can't tell (without looking) if I'm on edge, gprs or WiFi. So far this seems to be an excellent phone. Less
