HTC Advantage – head to head with S5 soon


The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 has been my mobile blogging tool which I have been using to take pictures of the S5 and upload directly to the vilivboys blog.

Just a couple of days back, I was presented with an opportunity to acquire a HTC Advantage x7501, a device which I have been ogling for the last 2 years since its release and is James Kendrick’s (jkontherun) all time favourite mobile device.

In true gadgetholic fashion, I’ve decided to trade in my Xperia X1 for a HTC Advantage x7501.

This then presents me with opportunity to pit the Advantage against the S5 as road warrior device. Both are roughly the same size but that’s pretty much where the similarities end.

How well will a Windows Mobile 6 device released 2 years ago do against the recently released S5 running full XP o/s?

Stay tune for review and lots of comparision pictures once I get my eagers hands on the Advantage tonight.

    I’ve enjoyed my HTC Advantage x7500 for a seemingly long time. Here’s my questions which perhaps you can address in your review:

    1. How do you compare the responsiveness (softness) of the two screens?
    2. How do you compare the responsiveness (performance) of the two devices, which not only have different processors and RAM, but different OS’s.
    3. I believe that the screens, while about the same size, are a different shape, the Advantage’s being more square (or the S5 more rectangular). Which shape seems to be the better one for your usage?
