4.6/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 5 reviews

Building on their powerful, popular line of sleek touch screen devices, HTC has released the Fuze, also known as the GSM variant of the Touch Pro. The HTC Fuze offers a wonderful 2.8” high resolution screen and a beautiful TouchFLO 3D interface which runs on top of the Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 operating system.

This TouchFLO interface is remarkably intuitive, and since it runs on top of the Window’s OS, it simplifies what might be an otherwise cumbersome navigation process. The user can relax and let the TouchFLO interface not only make interacting with the device simple and intuitive, but fun as well! However, the one drawback to the interface is that it can, at times, lag. This is a complaint echoed in some circles.

The HTC Fuze boasts a high-end feature set sure to please. In addition to a 3.2MP camera and video player, you get WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, push email capability, enormous customization options, music player and much more. You also receive a number of useful applications, including WikiMobile, Internet Sharing, Adobe Reader LE and Remote Desktop.

Pros: Great touch interface, powerful apps, fun to use

Cons: Touch interface sometimes hit or miss/lags, YouTube and MSN Messenger must be downloaded.

Verdict: The Fuze competes on an Olympic level with the finest smartphones on the market. Aside from a small concern for the sometimes sluggish UI, this phone can simplify your life and keep you connected better than most of the competition. If you are looking for an all-in-one device that has the horsepower to run the most advanced mobile applications currently available, and do it in a way that is pleasing to the senses, take a look at the HTC Fuze.

Comes closer to the definitive PocketPC concept

At the end of this review, we're back where we left off. The Touch Pro and the Diamond just go together. In the face of Touch Pro, the Diamond has lost some of its one-of-a-kind design-driven edge and gained elsewhere (beside the waistline). It's not the most obvious QWERTY add-on only: the TV-out port, better battery and microSD card slot sound just as sweet. It's not as simple as "we liked the Diamond, so we like the Touch Pro even better". It just so seems the Touch Pro comes closer to the definitive PocketPC concept...

It's not as simple as "we liked the Diamond, so we like the Touch Pro even better". It just so seems the Touch Pro comes closer to the definitive PocketPC concept.

Anyway, it's time to draw the line and, from what our experience shows, the Touch Pro quite deserves every penny you spend on it. The price tag is hefty but it's worth noting that HTC Touch Pro costs less than the TyTN II used to upon release. There is no better device on the market in this class (yet) and if this is the kind of phone you are after - just go for it.

The good news for all the rest is that there's choice. The HTC Touch Diamond and the Samsung Omnia make pretty good keyboard-less alternatives.

Needless to say, the Touch Pro is still to receive its trial by fire. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 will also have its say on the market success of the Pro. Now, that's good news for all of us: an exciting clash awaits.

The HTC Fuze from AT&T definitely looks and feels like an extremely high-end device. However, the high-gloss finish makes this smartphone a complete fingerprint magnet, and the glass over the touchscreen can make touching the correct area a bit of a challenge. We were relatively impressed by the photos taken by the 3.2 megapixel camera, though rather annoyed with the lack of a dedicated camera button, and the somewhat confusing option menus. The included micro-USB to 3.5mm headphone adapter is an excellent workaround, and the overall music quality is good. Great battery life and great reception round out the features of this finger-friendly smartphone, along with the nice QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, the system is sluggish overall, but that could easily be fixed with a firmware update. Overall, we at MobileBurn.com give the HTC Fuze from AT&T a 'Highly Recommended' rating.

Unresponsive sluggard

from Wired

Some people have really bad phone skills. You'll ask a question and they'll take forever to answer, or they just sit there on the line, making you think the call dropped. (Hello? Hello?) Now imagine a phone that does that. You tap a button and nothing happens. So you hit it again. After the third or fourth press, all of the commands register, taking you someplace you didn't want to go. You have just met the HTC Fuze. This unresponsive sluggard is so laggy that all of its good qualities are snowed under by its constant reluctance to do anything...

Some people have really bad phone skills. You'll ask a question and they'll take forever to answer, or they just sit there on the line, making you think the call dropped. (Hello? Hello?) Now imagine a phone that does that. You tap a button and nothing happens. So you hit it again. After the third or fourth press, all of the commands register, taking you someplace you didn't want to go. You have just met the HTC Fuze. This unresponsive sluggard is so laggy that all of its good qualities are snowed under by its constant reluctance to do anything.

Which is a bummer, because in most other respects, this is a pretty cool handset. One of the best features is the 3-megapixel camera with automatic focus. Few phones have it, and it makes a world of difference when you can get your subject into sharp clarity by pressing the button halfway. All it's missing is a real flash (it just has that weak LED). The keyboard is roomy and easy to type on, making short work of e-mails and text messages, and there's even a function that pulls up a notepad for jotting if you pull the stylus out mid-call. The Fuze comes with 288 MB of SDRAM, but you can add a microSD for as much extra space as you need. The HTC also has Bluetooth and WiFi for connectivity and faster web performance at access points.

I've owned my Fuze for a little over a year. I haven't had many problems with it until recently. The phone has stopped ringing. Which is important (if you want to use it as a phone). Unfortunately, HTC and AT&T don't provide much support for these phones. Which is sad, because I really like the phone, because it's probably one of the most functional business phones on the market (CrackBerries can't hold a candle to it). The internet works very quickly, all of the Microsoft programs are quite functional, you can create, edit and save your documents, you can have various email programs, etc. It has great video, mobile TV, and will do anything that an iPod will do, without the "I'm a 12 year old stigma" of owning an iPod This is an adult phone for business professionals. The GPS works without AT&T's Nav program, just download one of the other mobile GPS programs, and you're good to go. Overall, I'd buy another one (simply because I need a great business phone, and nothing else out there compares.). Less

HTC Fuzed, locked and sucks

I have been using smart phones since the first one came out from Motorola using the first microsoft mobile OS, before the USA had any type of reliable GSM network in place. That old motorola with all it's crashes worked better than this "thing",( I can't call it a phone, computer, or even a fancy page...More
I have been using smart phones since the first one came out from Motorola using the first microsoft mobile OS, before the USA had any type of reliable GSM network in place. That old motorola with all it's crashes worked better than this "thing",( I can't call it a phone, computer, or even a fancy pager). It's clear that they are trying to be like the iphone, but with no processing power, memory or programs that run. The act of creating a simple text message from scratch takes about 10 minutes. finding your friends number and pulling it up to dial, another 10 minutes. The choice to use the pointer, touch screen, or slide out key pad when you push a button, and nothing happens, well that wastes another 10 minutes. If you had to reply to anyone about anything while driving, will surely get killed in a car accident, with no doubt. Safe yourself, keep your old Razer like I did, until they put out something that works. Less
