Best HTC phones in 2012

The best HTC phones on the market this year

HTC has risen from relative obscurity to become one of the hottest and most popular brands in the mobile industry.

The Taiwanese company is well renowned for manufacturing feature rich smartphones across all price points, from the entry level Wildfire S to the flagship One X, which features a polycarbonate design and a quad-core processor. We round-up the best HTC smartphones on the market in 2012, including upcoming 4G models like the One XL and the Windows Phone-powered Titan II 4G.

HTC Velocity 4G

The HTC Velocity 4G is definitely the fastest phone on the Australian market, even when you're outside of a 4G coverage zone. However, we don't feel the speed increase is significant enough to warrant choosing it over some of its competitors. Putting aside 4G, the HTC Velocity is an excellent smartphone, but it offers largely the same features we've seen in HTC phones over the past six months.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
