HTC Flyer Two-part Video Review

Still pondering on which Android tablet to buy? Perhaps you are considering the HTC Flyer, but are not sure whether you should opt for a Samsung tablet instead? Well we have a two-part video review of the HTC Flyer for your consideration below that may or may not help you make up your mind.

The two-part HTC Flyer review video comes our way courtesy of Noah Kravitz of Technobuffalo and jointly delivers twenty minutes of getting up close and personal with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread tablet.

Noah has come up with a few pros and cons for the HTC Flyer, the pros are, great build quality, form factor works well with one or two hands, Android 2.3 is more polished than Android 3.0 Honeycomb, great Notes app for use with the Scribe pen, good battery life and solid performance.

On the down side the cons are, the HTC Flyer cannot run Android 3x apps, thick and a tad weighty, no cellular data connections options, Onlive gaming service is currently inactive, pen support is limited to just 3 apps, and a rather hefty price if you opt for the pen as well coming in at $578.

So there are Noah’s pros and cons, now all you need do is head on down and mash the play buttons to check out the HTC Flyer review and see whether the Flyer is the right tablet for you…enjoy.

  1. For a 7″ tablet, Flyer is undeniably thick and heavy. A lot of people buy an iPad for its look alone. Not to mention other shortcomings, HTC Flyer is bound to fail because of this. Obviously not in the same league of iPad, Galaxy Tab, Xoom and Playbook.

    Having had several Tablet PC’s, along with an iPad, a Galaxy Tab (original) and now the HTC Flyer, I have to say I am loving the Flyer. I agree that it is slightly heavier than the plastic Galaxy Tab, but after a day of use I didn’t notice it at all. It is fast, has good battery life and a great UI. I especially like the pen functionality, as I take a lot of notes. Would I like it to be thinner & lighter?…. sure, but in the scheme of things, it actually is pretty thin & light. This is a minor issue. I definitely like it better & use it more that my iPad. It is certainly not my ideal tablet, but it is the one I enjoy using the most right now. To each their own…. have fun.

    With Honeycomb available n the market for the tabs, HTC Flyer is still running Gingerbread. and the price of the tab is too high as compared to its features.
