Zune HD , an apparent competition for Apple iPhone from Microsoft.A sturdy, royal looking phone with touch. The phone is absolutely slim. The rear body is made of standard aluminum and the front body is made of up touchy plastic. The most notable feature of this mobile is, the 3.5 inch OLED screen. The screen is pretty much big and gives a good space for videos. The videos are really crispy,no lag and the videos does not pixelate.Usually OLED display screens are mediocre and the performance is not much appreciated. But this phone is really a feast to eyes.
The mobile runs a high end hardware which includes nVidia Tegra solution.Therefore it is not going to be the usual Windows mobile which takes huge time to start, sometimes. Audio clarity is very decent and the headphones are really funky and the head pieces are bit large to be plugged as such.There are mainly three buttons.
- Power button
- Central control button
Power button is situated in the top and the central control button acts as central phone control. The third button , i just call it Button3 as i cannot find a suitable name for it. The ultimate use of the button is, while playing music or video, pressing the button invokes a menu giving options to change volume and change track. Unfortunately there is no music keys on the sides as Nokia XpressMusic series.And in one way, the button can be called as a drawback.
The touch activity is changed a bit, includes swiping(scrolling horizontally). The interface would be confusing at the first and you need some time to get used with it. Once you are with it, then it will be a real fun using the mobile. The interface is an exception to all normal touch screen.
Sadly , the phone is not available in India. Lets wait for this attractive mobile.
