HTC which was founded in 1997, usually use Windows mobile OS in Their smartphones product but now They realize in the mobile tech marketplace that attachment on merely single brand isn't enough to conquer the market so, now They also equip Google Android OS along with Windows Phone OS in Their smartphones product. Because We already been in year 2012, We decide to review one of HTC product which We analyze would be great smartphones option to choose except if HTC Inc not put over priced tag value if compare with Their competitor.

HTC Velocity 4G #02 comment. For a smartphones edition in year 2012, HTC Velocity 4G should be on higher resolution especially if We compare with Sony Xperia S that comes in 720 x 1280 resolution pixels but HTC Velocity 4G still better than Samsung Galaxy S2 and roughly same resolution with iPhone 4S (640 x 960) and DROID RAZR Maxx (540 x 960). And We think HTC should equip this HTC Velocity 4G with Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. But enough said, They might have Their own consideration.

HTC Velocity 4G #04 comment.

Dual core processor on higher speed 1.5 GHz, Adreno GPU and one of the best Android UI in Their legendary HTC Sense UI v3.5, make this HTC Velocity 4G should be on high level sophisticated smartphones.

HTC Velocity 4G #05 comment. Though in some countries while internet speed not so fond of to really preoccupied max of smartphones capability, this last department of topic really amazes Us on how fast this HTC Velocity 4G push LTE capability. From speed download to speed upload come in at least 50 Mbps speed. Additional great point also, TV Out and HTC Velocity 4G great battery capacity on 1620 mAh that guarantees to help Your activity for at least 36+ hours (depend on network, Our activity and the power signal).
In Our closing review, We might be wrong but if We've been asked about how much this HTC Velocity 4G gonna be held on price tag value, We prefer to put this HTC Velocity 4G on around $550 - $600 if HTC Inc would like Their product been sold on fast moving option. We already saw on some webpages that They already sell this smartphones on $650 - $670 so We just hope on that certain price, HTC Inc still could sell this HTC Velocity 4G on great market sale.
