HTC Velocity 4 G in the Test

HTC Velocity 4 G in the Test

The first LTE Smartphone available in Germany comes from HTC, called 4 G HTC velocity, and to be offered for some time, exclusively with Vodafone.

  1. HTC velocity 4 G in the test
  2. Equipment, technique, conclusion

The exact timing of the launch was still as open as the exact unit price at the time of the first performance.

The latter is likely to be on the current HTC top models such as the HTC sensation XL oriented and thus are without a contract for 600 euros. The launch will take place between late February and mid-March. Until then, Vodafone will comment on also to the tariffs for the LTE smartphone use. Because clear is: the used SIM card must be activated on every case for 4 G. At best the SIM cards that were used only in LTE modems could run also in LTE smartphones – but also their owners must first tell at Vodafone.

As a rule, also an LTE Smartphone plan will be completed for the LTE Smartphone. Given the high rates of LTE, whose inclusive volume should be adjusted upwards and which demanded that prices of course.

Also, the LTE radio cells must be adapted step by step for the new smartphone support. At the Vodafone headquarters am Seestern in Düsseldorf, this was the case at the time of the test, the other areas of LTE in Germany to follow suit quickly – are but not necessarily inherently compatible with LTE smartphones.

Fine tuning on device and network

The LTE cell phone provided by HTC and Vodafone’s LTE network together to make friends, both sides had to operate anyway still a lot of fine tuning. As Vodafone spokesman Dirk Ellenbeck explains, it was above all to the implementation of telephony functionality on the velocity of 4 g. Because phone is a fallback occurs with an LTE Smartphone in the future not about the 4G-Mobilfunk – rather to 3 G or 2 G, depending on the available network.

The disadvantage of this solution: for outgoing or incoming also calls an Internet session ongoing at this time is interrupted and after completion of the call until rebuilt. A call from mother can interfere with sensitive so online banking held just on the mobile or the https-secured online shopping, because the secure connection is then broken.

The most impressive aspect of a Smartphone with LTE is the high transmission speed with safety. The Düsseldorf network were up to 35 MBit / s in the downlink and up to 20 MBit/s in the uplink to provide according to the speed test. Even a Wi-FI connection only if the network connection with VDSL or a really fast leased line behind closed provides such data rates on existing smartphones. For the HTC velocity to handle the incoming flood of data at an appropriate speed 4 G, it is powered clock frequency by a dual-core processor from Qualcomm 1.5 gigahertz.

In addition to the fast page loading while Web surfing high speed offers other handling advantages: the playhead at lightning speed could be move when streaming HD videos from YouTube – here, also significantly reduced latency in the LTE network is clear. And when applications such as Google maps the map display – on request also through satellite images – without the previously usual tough waiting pauses. Clearly: LTE on the Smartphone is fun.

Who wants and has posted sufficient volume of data, the HTC velocity be used 4 G as a Mobile HotSpot and thus a LTE modem and on how to create Wi-FI sign about his notebook or tablet.

The velocity of the HTC 4 G offers very good facilities: it with 16 gigabytes of built-in Flash memory waits, expandable by MicroSD card with up to an additional 64 GB. Also 1 GB of RAM, which is running in fast DDR2 technology ensures fast work.

The yet unusual in HTC 4.5 inch format (11.4 cm diagonal) with a resolution of 430 x 960 pixels (quarter-HD), maximum 262000 colors and LED-backlit display is used as a display. Its image is brilliant, although she can keep not quite with Samsung’s AMOLED displays.

With a large display and dimensions of 129 x 67 x 11.3 mm, the device is not just small, but quite slim for it. An accurate weight indication so far still guilty remained HTC – striking hard isn’t velocity but.

The reason for the slightly protruding design is expected in the high power requirements of LTE radio. For this reason, HTC built a proud 1750 mAh battery. Reliable run-time testing could not conduct the pre-test place of course. But intense after about one and a half hours “playing around” the charge level indicator to 50 per cent had fallen. Much more than three hours of online time don’t expect so think first when using the LTE.

Top facilities

The capacitive touchscreen responds usual precision, and the installed Android OS 4.0.2 “ice cream sandwich” can be in terms of 4G-Unterstützung, no wishes open. The four “Hardkeys” are below the large display as sensor keys.

The luxurious amenities continues with an 8 megapixel camera that supports auto-focus and one (such as the latest models of Apple and Sony) image sensor with “backside illumination” (BSI) use. Two LEDs serve as photo light. The front camera for video chats and private recordings offers 1.3 mega pixels.

With on board, of course A-GPS with digital compass, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-FI are 11 b / g / n, as well as an FM radio receiver. Also a mini-HDMI adapter for image transfer to TVs can be connected to the micro-USB connector.

Lots of technique in the belly

Also the sensor system is appropriate for the claim to be a high-end model: waiting for the velocity of the HTC 4 G with an ambient light, approach, movement and gyro sensor.

The list of supported Web standards so long like seldom before: LTE supports the machine on the frequencies of 800 MHz and 2600 MHz (which, however, may thwart a use outside the EU at least in the 4G-Betrieb). For UMTS/HSPA + radio the velocity 4 G to 900 and 2100 MHz with up to 14.0 MBit / s in the downlink and up to 5.76 MBit / s in the uplink. And the 2G-Modus the HTC works in 1800 and 1900 MHz with speeds up to the EDGE data rate of 220 kilobits / s in the downlink and 110 kilobits/s in the uplink as a quad-band phone on the frequencies 850, 900.

The practice test, the tester someday came to the point to ask: and what can the device yet? Then determine: no more than other very well-equipped Android smartphones. The HTC 4 G velocity is as a very well equipped smartphone, also with an impressively fast wireless connections. This early adopter and test editors must settle then but also simply times.
