The HTC 7 Mozart
If you’re eager to pick up one of the most amazing devices we’ve tried thus far, and at an unbelievable price, you should know that the HTC 7 Mozart is now priced at PHP 14,750 at CMKCellphones. This is an unprecedented price drop for a device that was only released late last year. In comparison, the HTC Desire which was released earlier is still priced at PHP 17k today. This means that the Windows Phone 7 device is now at the same price as midrange phones like the HTC Chacha or Samsung Galaxy Ace – and yet the specs and original price puts it toe-to-toe against the top 1Ghz phones today. We’re quite fond of the Mozart here in The Technoclast. In fact, we gave it 4.5/5 stars in our review. That’s the highest score we’ve given a phone thus far, and we haven’t changed our minds just yet.
The HTC 7 Mozart is probably most similar to HTC’s own Desire S Android device. They have the same 3.7” form factor and components, with some slight differences in design flourish. They are however, both beautiful, thin, and have a aluminum unibodies protecting them from damage. They both have 1Ghz processors, and 3.7” 800×480 SLCD displays. The Mozart though, has a higher 8MP camera (720p video) and Xenon flash, which is probably one of the reasons why we like it so much. Of course, the largest difference would be that the Mozart runs on Microsoft’s newest Windows Phone 7 OS and the Desire S runs on Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Both OSes have their own merits of course, and we really loved the fluidity of the WP7’s Metro UI. (Let’s face it, Android does lag every so often.)
With this new price point, the HTC 7 Mozart is now more like the Cherry Mobile Magnum HD – a phone with top specs but is now priced like a midrange phone. Anybody in the budget range of 14k should seriously consider the Mozart (or Magnum HD) for their choice of device. We can, however, guarantee the impeccable quality that HTC puts into their devices and there is no doubt you’ll be satisfied with its sleek design cues and reliability. So pick one of these bargain gems up if you’re keen – you have our blessings and you will not be disappointed.
