• Because of Sense UI, it seems to function like a smartphone.
  • Capacitive touchscreen for better performance in scrolling and using the virtual keyboard.
  • Aluminum build gives the phone a high-end feel.
  • Great customization features
  • Decent camera


  • Battery life is decent, but could be better
  • The camera is acceptable, but it would have been nice to see a flash or autofocus, especially once you consider the price


Simply put, the Freestyle is the closest thing to owning a smartphone without actually owning a smartphone. If you want the same experience, similar performance, and a phone that you can actually show off without having to pay enormous amounts for it and for the monthly data, the Freestyle is the way to go. HTC Sense UI adds so much to the device in terms of options, functionality, and performance, and features like a capacitive touchscreen and 3G data for web browsing make the Freestyle the best non-smartphone option on AT&T.
