Top Accessories for the HTC HD7

May 30th, 2011 No comments

First, let’s look at the HD7 itself. Running on Windows Phone 7, the HD7 also has a super fast processor, making it one of the best multimedia devices out. The display is 4.3″, the camera include with the phone is 5 megapixels, and the memory is 16 GB. In addition, the HD7 has loud dual stereo speakers, and a built-in kickstand to let you stand it up on any flat surface, making the device perfect for its role as a media presenter. But, to take the best advantage of these media capabilities, you should look at these HTC HD7 accessories now available.

The HD7 definitely needs a case to protect the surface of the phone.  Finding a case that will accommodate the smart phone can be tough, especially if the smart phone has a very unique design. The two choices for protection are the HTC HD7 holster and a case. A holster is typically a plastic type of case that has a swivel clip on the back that can attach to many items, such as a belt, purse, or even a folder. Though a holster does an excellent job of protecting the phone while it is in the case, it does not protect the phone in use. The best way to protect your device during heavy use is by investing in a case, sometimes called skin cases. A HD7 case has cutouts to allow the use of the kickstand, and the ports. The thin layer of the skin case does not block sound, enabling full use of the speakers.

The large touch screen of the HD7 may well be what sets it apart from other smart phones, but it also makes the phone more vulnerable. Even with just daily use, the screen will start to collect dust, grime, and you will also start leaving fingerprints behind. To keep an HD7′s display looking like it was the day you unboxed it, a screen protector is an excellent idea. Screen protectors are merely durable plastic sheets that cover the display screen, yet still allow the phone to operate as if there were no covering. These sheets of plastic may be replaced as needed at any time.

One feature that will bring many complains to HTC is the battery life; with only a 1230 mAh battery, the HD7 will not be able to maximize its full potential. On the other hand, the HD7 battery is easy to swap out. Buy an extra HTC HD7 battery as a gift to be sure the HD7 owner will never have to worry about running out of power.

The HD7 makes use of the microUSB port not only to charge the device, but also to sync it. An extra charging cable to fit that port is also an excellent gift idea. The HD7 owner, even if they already have such a cable and carry it back and forth all the time, can keep the extra one in the car, or at the office for those charging emergencies.

Different Cases for the HTC Surround

May 29th, 2011 No comments

One thing you must know about cases is that they generally come in 2 different styles, leather and plastic. Leather tends to cost a bit more than plastic, but many users find that plastic cases work a lot better.

Some people will naturally gravitate toward plastic cases because they are more interested in physical protection than physical attractiveness, or because they are interested in saving as much money as possible after pouring so much of it into the smart phone itself, or because they simply prefer the simple look of plastic cases to the more fashion conscious look of leather cases.

While plastic cases are more economical, many people still prefer leather cases because they are attracted to the classic look or because they tend to be more stylish. Whatever the reasons, there are certain people who will naturally be drawn to one or the other type of smart phone case, and there is nothing wrong with that if you are or are not such a person.

You will want to decide between the two types of cases to make your shopping for HTC Surround accessories such as an HTC Surround case a little easier. To help out let me share some advice, it all comes down to personal preference, so of you are low in cash, like that style better than this one, or whatever, just be sure to know that it is your choice and any type of case will keep you protected. You will not always be able to try out the accessory in person, however, so you will want to read reviews ahead of time so you know which models to go for and which ones to avoid.

Finally, you might also want to pick up an extra HTC Surround battery while you are out shopping for accessories. Smart phones tend to use a lot of power because of all of the great features. Having a spare battery can only work in your favor and can even be a life saver.

Features of the HTC Surround

April 17th, 2011 No comments

It is always important to note that names of the different types of applications are always changing because of updates and such. That said, the general names for most apps should get you where you’re going without too much of a hassle.

When trying to locate local shops and venues it is important to have applications that have maps. This application alone might well be worth the purchase of the HTC Surround, or any other smart phone that allows you to access it. Why is it so useful? It’s essentially a GPS that fits in your phone. With the app, you don’t need to buy a separate GPS unit. Paying extra or filling out forms in unnecessary when using applications on your smart phone. It just works directly from your phone anywhere where you can access a phone signal, as this is what it uses to connect to the internet.

Once you are connected finding local shops and chain restaurants is very easy, your device does it all for you. It’s all at the tips of your fingers, and it’s made possible through what might be one of the most useful apps ever written for a smart phone.

Many users still prefer to search the old fashioned way and use Google to find anything they are looking for. Once you type in your zip code and the kind of restaurant at which you would like to dine, it’s a snap to find exactly what you’re looking for through a simple Google search. If you don’t want to put in your zip code, you can also put in your address and have Google locate the nearest shops and restaurants to where you live. Or if that seems a little too precise and creepy, you can simply put in the town, city, or neighborhood in which you live for similarly accurate results.

No matter which method you use to search for shops and restaurants in your area, you will likely appreciate the value of a few HTC Surround accessories to help make your searches more productive, or at least a little easier. For example, an HTC Surround holster is an easy way to keep your phone within arm’s reach, while an HTC Surround battery will give you extra charge for long searches.
