Connectivity options are good too, with both HSDPA and Wi-Fi support for browsing on the move, and Bluetooth for using the phone with wireless car kits and headsets. As the Snap's quad-band, you'll be able to use it in most countries around the world, and the impressive on-board GPS, which works well in Google Maps, means you won't get lost when you're on your travels.
The Snap's meagre 2-megapixel camera is very basic by today's standards. It lacks both autofocus and a flash, so it's unsurprising that the photos it takes are pretty poor. We can overlook this problem to an extent, as the Snap is aimed primarily at business users.
More difficult to ignore is the phone's poor battery life. Whereas most BlackBerry devices manage to squeeze a few days of life out of their power packs, the Snap only managed to keep running for around a day and a half under normal usage conditions.
We love the HTC Snap's brilliant keyboard and innovative Inner Circle feature, but it's let down considerably by its short battery life and dated Windows Mobile user interface. Consequently, we can't see many people rushing to swap their BlackBerry for a Snap.
