The HTC Trophy is one of Verizon’s new Window’s phones. It sports a 5-megapixel camera, Xbox Live games, Office and Outlook for productivity, and has Netflix support – all in a compact design. At USD 100, the Trophy is also budget priced. We took a look to see if it can compare to higher priced phones as well as those with other operating systems.
The HTC Trophy comes in a small, unassuming, cardboard box, as shown in Figure 1. The contents of the box are shown in Figure 2. They include the phone; a USB charging cable; a wall plug with retractable prongs that is used with the USB cable for charging from a wall outlet; a set of hard ear buds; two thin, soft covers and a clip for the ear buds; a variety of Consumer Information and Product Safety brochures; and a small “Master Your Device” pamphlet.
The phone itself, as shown in Figure 3, is all black with a small silver ring around the screen. Measuring 4.67 x 2.42 x 0.47 inches (118.5 x 61.5 x 11.96 mm) and weighing 4.9 ounces (140 grams), it is small and light and fits easily into a hand or pocket. HTC has added a soft-touch finish to the entire back and sides of the phone, making it slip-resistant and easy to handle. The Trophy is a well-built phone with a solid look and feel.
