HTC Velocity 4G Android phone

 

HTC Velocity 4G review: Australia's first 4G smartphone is fast, but coverage is limited

4G speeds and HSPA+ dual-channel ; Excellent build quality ; Good performance

4G coverage is limited ; Android 4.0 update in progress

The HTC Velocity 4G is definitely the fastest phone on the Australian market, even when you're outside of a 4G coverage zone. However, we don't feel the speed increase is significant enough to warrant choosing it over some of its competitors. Putting...

AT&T Velocity

 

With strong base performance and an attractive price, the Velocity is a good mobile hotspot value for AT&T subscribers.

Solid performance. Quick and easy setup. MicroSD card slot

Limited data plan options. Cannot broadcast 2.4GHz and 5GHz W-Fi simultaneously

The Velocity is the slightly more affordable half of AT&T's mobile hotspot duo, ditching some of the features you get with the Unite Pro in the name of price. At $149.99 (sans contract), the Velocity offers solid performance that will be more than...

HTC Velocity 4G

 

Telstra's first 4G phone is good, but not great. The 4G speeds shine through in speed tests, but fail to do so in everyday use. Its excellent camera is worth a second look, however.

Excellent 8-megapixel camera ; Bright, sharp display ; 4G is great when tethering your phone to a PC

4G speeds have little effect on everyday phone use ; Battery life will disappoint heavy users ; Handset becomes uncomfortably hot with extended use

Telstra's first 4G phone is definitely good, but it's not great. Based on its user experience and performance, the Velocity is much like the smartphones we saw from HTC at the end of last year, but delivered in a bulkier, heavier package. It performs...

AT&T Velocity Review: A Wi-Fi Hotspot for "Almost" Anyone

 

Hotspots aren't for everyone. For most, the free Wi-Fi at coffee shops, libraries, and public parks is more than enough. But some require the security and features of a dedicated hotspot. This review is for them.

Dual-band Wi-Fi ; Great battery life ; Excellent range ; Dual-band Wi-Fi ; Great battery life ; Excellent range

Are you a business traveler? Do you really need a hotspot? ; Are you a business traveler? Do you really need a hotspot?

If you’re the type who needs a personal hotspot, then it’s worth getting one with full connectivity features. That’s the AT&T Velocity – at least for AT&T customers. As of this writing, it costs $0.99 with a two-year agreement, or $149.99 without....

AT&T Velocity ZTE Mobile WiFi Hotspot [Review]

 

When covering CES every year I always like to make sure we have a hotspot with us to help get our articles done everywhere and not rely on shared hotspots or even the crappy and expensive hotel data that's all over Las Vegas. This year we teamed up...

HTC Velocity 4G Is Blisteringly Fast Pity About The Android OS

 

The new HTC Velocity is blisteringly fast and after a week in the USA attending the CES show where I was able to use the Samsung Illusion 4G phone running on the Verizon Network the only conclusion that one can draw is that the combination of the HTC...

If you want the fastest smartphone in Australia this is your device. It delivers what Telstra and HTC are promising. Under the bonnet it is fast and efficient. ;

This is a leading edge phone when it comes to speed, a top dog model that should have been launched with Android 4.0 and a better screen. It's also a tad heavy which is why we have stripped points. For the heavy duty user this is ideal especially if...
