What the Critics Are Saying...


PhoneArena

If you are the adventurous type, and want a touchscreen phone with basic functionality and solid design, then you can take the HTC Smart for a spin.

- Daniel P., PhoneArena
CNET

Thanks to its Sense user interface, HTC's Smart looks cleverer than it is. But, as pay-as-you-go touchscreen phones go, the Smart is still one of our favourites, due to its attractive home-screen widgets and big, finger-friendly icons. It's short on some of the social-networking features we crave...

- Flora Graham, CNET
