HTC Legend

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The HTC Hero packed a powerful punch itself, but now the manufacturer has upped the ante in specs, design and model name with that device's successor - the HTC Legend.

The Legend takes design queues from the HTC Hero with its curved chin, but in this go-round, it comes with a sleek and sturdy unibody frame topped with a brushed metallic finish. With the HTC Legend you'll definitely be travelling in style.

With a 3.2-inch screen, 5MP camera with auto-focus and flash, 3.5mm headset jack, optical trackpad, FM radio and a host of other features, the HTC Legend definitely stands its ground.

With HTC's custom Sense interace, you get a little extra bang for your buck. We're talking sexy graphics, useful and beautiful widgets, and handy extras like your ringer being silenced when your phone is placed face down or your ringer volume decreasing when you physically pick up your phone.

The HTC Legend is yet another shining star in the manufacter's lineup of Android phones and if your local carrier offers the Legend - it's definitely a viable purchase option.

Bell’s HTC Legend Already Hitting End of Life Due to Supply Constraints
