A wonderful device that packs in some nice features

from GSMArena

The HTC TyTN II is a wonderful device and it packs in some nice features. Its design is high-tech, yet solid and functional. The communication capabilities allow using it in almost every out-of-the-office scenario. We liked the QWERTY keyboard and the notebook-like usability of the device. The integrated GPS receiver is another really cool feature. The battery too is on par with the rich feature set of the device.

The downsides we found with the TyTN II are that it doesn't have a VGA resolution display and it's not really pocketable. It doesn't have a 3D accelerator or USB host f... Full review

Poor battery life may be the real dealbreaker for some users

from Wired

3G? It's in there. Wi-Fi? It's in there. GPS? It's in there. In fact, the AT&T Tilt promises, on paper, every wireless standard you could possibly ask for, a rather giddy slap in the face to Apple's comparably crippled iPhone. Designed for deep geeks who don't value style so much, the Tilt slides open to reveal a spacious QWERTY keyboard (just like its big brother the AT&T 8525), earning its name by letting you tilt the screen to a comfortable incline, which makes it far more useful in tabletop action. There's a lot to like, even love, here: Full-on Office Mobile, push email, push-t... Full review

Seems impressive, fails to perform

when I got this phone a year ago I loved it. I loved the options, the versatility. The more I got to know the phone, the more I hate it. I love HTC. I think their phones are brilliant - especially for a geek who loves to tinker. I'm going to be switching my TILT out for a Fuze in a week. Here is my list of pros and cons for the HTC Kaiser (aka TILT) Pros: 1. Keyboard - I love it and I will never use anything else. I had a RAZR and a Samsung Propel and they don't hold a candle to the power of the slide out QWERTY keyboard on a Kaiser. 2. Bright colors - the colors are simply beautiful on this phone. Enough said. 3. The option of using buttons OR the touch screen. Sometimes I use the buttons, sometimes I use the screen, but I love the option of using either one. I usually opt for the buttons because the touch screen is unreliable and takes too much precision to get it "just right" 4. The Tilt screen. It's so handy. I'm definitely going to miss that. That about does it for the Pros, unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros. 1. Lag: There's a dreadful lag on the touch screen, and when opening applications, and when closing applications, and when switching from portrait to landscape Less

My husband bought this phone (black)unlocked for my birthday in June. I bought it unlocked because we live overseas right now and I already had an overseas sim card. It worked great for about 2 months and now I loose my signal in places I had reception before. This is not good. As a mother and wife, I depend on my phone a lot. As of now I would say don't waste your time on this phone. I have tried soft resetting it. I've tried changing the mode from phone to plane and back to phone and nothing has worked for more then a few minutes. I am very disappointed. I feel like I wasted my time and money. :( Less

Pro: It can make phone calls. Con: unreliable Using experience: 2 years As previous reviewers stated, this looked like it would be the greatest phone/pda on earth and I was an enthusiastic owner when I first purchased it. The longer I owned it, the more I hated it. sound quality with every brand of bluetooth headset was so bad I finally gave up using them. The Microsoft operating system, surprise, does what all microsoft products do. It slowly deteriorates and randomly fails. First, it mysteriously stopped syncing with my computer. Then, the alarm function on the calendar stopped working for no reason. It no longer hangs up reliably when the screen is in powered down mode. It crashes often enough that I have to remember to save data every time I do anything important. The software appears to have been designed by the microsoft desktop departement because there are sometimes three to five "clicks" to get to the command you want, which makes navigating a nightmare on a handheld device. Often the button you want switches places from right to left depending on the screen, or isn't intuitively in a logical spot. The slide out keyboard has rounded buttons so your thumb may slide and hit the adjacent key, and the sensitivity of the keyboard is poor so typing with it has caused me to consider taking high blood pressure meds. Handwriting recognition randomly stops working until you turn it off and then on again. There's more, but that's enough. You get the idea. I'm not ever buying anything microsoft or HTC product if I can help it. Less

This is a decent phone for the right person. I owned one for about 6 months and that was all I could stand. I sold it and bought a BB Bold (best phone for me). The Tilt is somewhat slow, bulky and cumbersome. On the plus side, it does do dang near everything and there is a lot of Windows software out there. I gave up on it because of the slowness and touch screen. Whipping out the pen every time you need to do something is a pain in the azz. If you don't have tiny lady fingers, pass on this one. Less

Love it!

from Amazon
This is my first window's mobile phone and I'm hooked! I've had it for about one month. I love how the screen tilts. This phone is probably considered older model now but it is simple and easy to use, especially for first time users like me!

The phone is acceptable as a PDA and phone. The issue I continue to have with this device is the Navigation softward continues to be problematic and I can only recommend that you donot subscribe to this service with this phone. I have an issue at least once per month. The telenav somehow becomes inactive when using during a trip. The internet data connection gets lost during a trip and it will not connect. So, I lose internet and navigation. This only seems to occur when I am travelling - when I use Telenav on trips that move from one ATT region to another. ATT has replaced my SIM, conducted master resets, and other machinations. ATT reps continue to say they will do something - like discuss a replacement phone - but they donot call our company account manager. It should be noted that this phone is provided by my employer. I have had monthly phone calls to ATT and Telenav, with no long-term (more than a month) solution. When I finally get back home for a day or so, the operations/settings resume to normal with the email/data function. ATT blames Telenav and HTC. Telenav blames ATT. There are 7-8 individuals with this phone in my company. Most are happy, but I don't believe they subscripe to the Telenav. One of our salesman had this phone and finally got fed up with his problems with it - not related to Telenav - and got a Motorola Q as a replacement. I am trying to get away from this product. What is very disappointing to me is that I changed to ATT from another subscriber specifically for the Telenav service. My long-time provider did not provide phone navigation. Less

Worst phone ever made

My husband has the Fuse and it's a cool phone too, but I prefer the Tilt. The rounded corners and tilt of the screen are much more what I prefer. I love all the cool things I can do with it and the Windows operating system on it. I have completely replaced my Palm Pilot and hope this phone lasts me the rest of my life!!! Less

AT&T Tilt Has Faulty Cheap USB Port

I have owned several HTC phones prior to this model and they have been work horses. 8125 was one of the best. However my experience with the 8925 is that it is a cheap POS. It does not work nearly as well as the 8125. It has problems keeping Bluetooth conenctions and charging and syncing are problematic. The straw that broke my back is that the USB port on my stopped working and upon examination the connection wafer cracked because it is a cheap POS. I did not abuse my phone anymore than I abused the others that lasted years. I sent the phone to HTC and they are claiming that the USB port breaking is user caused damage. More over that port is attached to the mother board and they want to charge me $400 dollars to fix it. For this reason I would not reccomend any HTC products to anyone ever again, and the 8925 is without a doubt a huge POS. Less
