HTC Legend multimedia

A ll the multimedia is found in the menu under music. An adjustment is also found here, as you immediately see music tracks with the album image. If you choose options, you get a list that you can arrange according to album, artist, genre or track. With the built-in speaker you can enjoy your music in high quality, or you can use the headset included or any headset with a 3.5mm connection. The captured photos and videos are brought together in the menu under photos. Next to this content you can of course play videos via the YouTube application. Thanks to the fast connection, the clear screen and a touch screen that reacts well, the HTC Legend is very suitable for this.

Download Apps via the Android Market

Due to the fact that the Android platform is completely open, developers are very busy and keep introducing more and more applications. These products can be found on the especially appointed Android Market, which are in principle made for everyone. That is why we find a large selection of free and paid applications on the Android Market. Searching is easy and you can keep adding something to your Android cell smartphone. Think of a task manager, a TV-guide, fun games or other handy programs. By keeping an eye on the market, you can get more and more out of your HTC Legend.

Internet & Email on your phone

Google products work perfectly together with the Android platform. Just fill out your Google-account, and all contacts, e-mail messages and agenda dates are loaded. You can also program other e-mail addresses and there is also support for Microsoft Exchange. The web browser runs very smoothly and due to the presence of Wi-Fi and HSDPA, everything is within reach. The clear screen displays everything well and due to a very well-reacting touch screen you can access any time of web page. Even Flash websites are supported. The HTC Legend smartphone is a true internet phone; I have used many web browsers on diverse cell phones, but this one combines all the positive points that I have experienced so far.

HTC Legend Stand-by time

A 3.7V 1300 mAh Lithium Ion battery is included with the HTC Legend. This battery should deliver a maximum stand-by time of 440 hours and a maximum talk time of approximately 8 hours, according to the specifications. In daily use the stand-by time was pretty good, especially considering the fact that I used a lot of functions intensively. Usually the battery lasted up to three days. That is very decent for such a cell phone. The charger with Micro-USB connection ensures that the phone can also be recharged quickly.

HTC Legend storage capacity

The HTC Legend’s internal memory is 384MB. With the many multimedia functionalities and the 5.0 megapixel digital camera, this memory is filled up quickly. Luckily the memory can also be extended by a microSD/SDHC memory card. The HTC Legend smartphone supports this memory card up to a maximum of 32GB. A disadvantage of the flash memory card is its location. Because the phone is pretty much made up of one piece only, there is a small door underneath for the battery, which is also where the slot for the memory card is found. When you open the door, the battery comes out and the phone is switched off. It is thus not possible to quickly remove and replace the memory card.
