Cell Phone Comparisons
HTC Trophy vs. Apple iPhone 4 Comparison

May 12th, 2011


In the computer world, Microsoft’s Windows operating system has long battled Apple’s Macintosh operating system for dominance. As of today, Windows is the overwhelming choice by consumers for desktop and notebook computers. In the cellphone market, the situation is completely reversed, with Apple’s iPhone enjoying highly popular status, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 operating system has far fewer fans. And that is with the iPhone having just one manufacturer (Apple) and running on just two of the big four carriers (Verizon and AT&T), while Windows Phone 7 is supplied on phones from multiple manufacturers and works on all four big carriers.

Otherwise, the HTC Trophy and Apple iPhone 4 are seemingly similar devices. Both can make phone calls, surf the Web, handle e-mail, read word processor files and take/view photos. Both these modern operating systems are elegant and hide a lot of capability under an easy-to-use surface. Both the iPhone 4 and the HTC Trophy are attractive and capable smartphones, so how do these two phones compare?
