    Pros: thinner, lighter than the old ppc 6700. Windows mobile 6 is the best.
    Cons: still a little bulky. boot up slow.

    Summary: I bought the HTC Mogul (ppc 6800) recently because Microsoft had just come out with Mobile 6. Since my two other microsoft phones (motorola Q and ppc 6700) had the latter versions, moving to the PPC 6800 was justified. The mogul actually replaced the ppc ... read more

    Pros: Windows based, loads of available software & accessories
    Cons: Size

    Summary: I purchased my HTC PPC 6800 phone because I was ready for something more gadgety after having a plain old Razor.  And having had 2 pocket pc's in the past and being really happy with them, I thought this was the way to go.My ... read more

  • While not perfect - this phone is worth it. US Cellular.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Call quality, available programs, functionality.
    Cons: BlueTooth issues, internet browser, many programs that used to be standard now require additional cost.

    Summary: I wanted this phone for quite awhile before letting myself get it.  It is the second to the most expensive phone that US Cellular offers and also requires a Data plan that runs $24.95 per month extra (requires - they will not let you activate the ... read more

  • 5 star PDA - 2 star phone

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great screen, solid applications. Touch screen is very predictable.
    Cons: Too many to list here. Not enough battery life.

    Summary: Really, you should probably avoid this phone. It is a very good PDA. I use it in full daylight, and I can read my Excel spreadsheets pretty well. HOWEVER, this thing is the worst phone ever, If I weren't buying it as a phone, I'd actually be ... read more

  • Revolutionized my handheld life

    Apr 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Keyboard, bluetooth, GPS, WM6 (office, email), micro SD, Wi-Fi
    Cons: Larger screen, camera isn't too great, no MMS (picturemail) or SprintTV, earpiece volume

    Summary: Decided to upgrade my Sprint flip phone to something more powerful/capable. Opted out of the Blackberry world and decided to go with the Mogul. I love the integration with Windows Vista and how I can do so much with my phone all at the same time. ... read more

  • Thumbs Down to this Pocket PC

    Mar 31, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: pda/cell phone/internet/whole-bunch-of-other-crap rolled into one device
    Cons: locks up frequently, sluggish, requires too many keystrokes for simple tasks, inferior operating system, cantankerous

    Summary: I bought the pocket pc because the idea of having my pda, cell phone, and internet capabilities in one package was very appealing. Now that I've used it for over four months, I regret my decision. The phone works fine and reception is good. However, ... read more

  • Sluggish Performance (no graphics drivers provided!)

    Jan 29, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Built-in wi-fi, touch-screen, keyboard
    Cons: Slow and unresponsive. Secondary graphics processor isn't used at all, overloading primary processor.

    Summary: I have owned this device for just over 1 month. I bought it because I'd heard good things about HTC, and because it had great tech specs, including a touch-screen, wi-fi, full keyboard, a beefy primary processor, and a dedicated secondary graphics ... read more

    Pros: WM6, bluetooth, wi-fi, 2MP camera, great battery.
    Cons: still a little bulky BUT that is excpected for a pda

    Summary: Let me start by saying that I have used HTC devices ever since the relase of the ppc6600 which ran MS pocket pc 2003. I upgraded to the ppc6700 which ran windows mobile 5 and now am using the ppc6800 with windows mobile 6. let me say that I am highly ... read more

  • It ain't yo baby's iPhone!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Awesome phone with a lot of control. I'm happy with it.
    Cons: Sprint customer no-service. People commonly ask, "Is that an iPhone?"

    Summary: The HTC PPC 6800, aka Sprint Mogul, VX6800 and more, is similar to many HTC PPCs in the past. What makes the 6800 special is it is one of the few PPCs taking Windows Mobile 6 for a voyage, has a touch screen as well as a qwerty keyboard and looks better ... read more

    Pros: Expandable storage SD card, performs many tasks very well, packed with GPS, camera and appliations
    Cons: Thicker than most, no headphone jack but works well with most bluetooth stereo headsets

    Summary: Fact is, I would have purchased the I-Phone but AT amp;T wouldn't give me my corporate discount on the equipment and service, so I bought this one.The phone is a little thicker, a little heavier but makes up for that with the great query keyboard and ... read more

    Pros:

    The full qwerty keyboard makes texting a snap and side-view browsing convenient.


    Cons:

    Rom update removed ability to manually set internet memory allocation.


    Summary: This is a smart phone in every sense of the term. The weight may be a put off for some but I specifically liked that aspect because it reminds me that I have a full feature pda phone at my fingertips. I notice that my friends with iPhones and Diamond ... read more

    Pros: EVDO-A service. Built in GPS. Email Capable. Slide out keyboard
    Cons: Fragile body on the phone and poor battery life and performance.

    Summary: Initially, the PPC6800 was a very buggy PDA phone. It had terrible bluetooth capabilities and had tons of other issues that made the phone very mediocre at best. Sprint finally stepped up with several ROM updates that enabled the phone to be used on ... read more

  • Horrible operating system

    Rated Show
    Pros: Excellent screen and hardware.
    Cons: Windows Mobile 6 is a travesty.

    Summary: The Windows Mobile 6 operating system is buggy and inconsistent. The operating system would not recognize a micro SD card. The wireless synch (for email) interferred with active synch for files. The backspace key sometimes deleted characters behind it ... read more

    Pros: I loved the 6700. Got this one after taking back the Samsung-i760.
    Cons: They advertise "Voice–Activated Dialing with Voice Command" but it is not MS-VC.

    Summary: The Display Card in the store and the website both say "Voice–Activated Dialing with Voice Command" This is NOT MS Voice Command. The Samsung i760 comes with this product installed and uses the same wording. In my ... read more
