Really easy to use; fantastic to have all the details of your contacts where ever you go. No more writing addresses down for postcards when you go away or calling up from outside to ask "what was your address again"?
And all my appointments are displayed on the front screen so less easy to miss one. (read more)

I love it. If you know Windows then this phone is very easy to use with lots of features. Can transfer and read most Window files like word, excel, notepad, mp3, wma, etc.
I will never go back to another phone and most probably my next phone will be an 02 again. (read more)

The slide out keyboard has q light green secondary function, printed on keys, BUT the backlight is blue, making reading them IMPOSSIBLE.
The battery life is less than two days with average use of the phone (15 local calls per day, averaging less than 10 minutes... (read more)

Where there is background noise - in the street- in the car with the radio on, I miss 50% of calls with the O2 XDA simply because I don't hear them. Had six previous mobile phones never a problem in this respect. Have had it slow down to a crawl twice, (in three months), and all I have done is built up appointments and addresses. The case is slippery and difficult to hold securely. A small design change could make it more hand friendly (read more)

In situations where there is reasonable background noise - in a shop- in my car with the radio on - walking down a busy street - I am missing at least 50% of incoming calls and many reminders with my O2 XDA mobile phone. Have had six previous mobile phones and never had a problem. Have tried a number of what appear to be the loudest sounds without success. I have come to the opinion that unless a suitable download can be arranged I shall have to go to a different phone. (read more)

As a phone it makes a good PDA! I'd only recommend the XDA if you were serious about using it as a PDA. I'd keep another mobile phone as backup.
Reception is its biggest drawback, and I have missed many calls as it hasn't reconnected to the network.
Web browsing is very possible and the GPRS connection seems fine. Battery life is good, but falls off after serious web browsing.
There are many downloadable programs/games available, and file storage is no problem with my 256MB memory card.... (read more)

I have been using the O2 xda for 4 weeks now, here is some feedback : For : The impressive screen, color and size. Impressive looks. I Like pocket pc features. Can't leave home without it.! Against : On the heavy side, Battary low alert icon remain even if battry has been re-charged, off/on will clear it. A little awkward for left handed users. (read more)

The XDA from HTC is a massive leap in the right direction and I wouldn't part with mine. However, two of the main four buttons cannot be assigned resulting in many games being unplayable. The reception is very poor compared to many phones costing a quarter of the price which is disappointing. (read more)

I have been waiting for the O2 XDA integrated phone and PDA for some time now and I finally got my hands on one. I must admit, it is pretty impressive and I even decided I like Microsoft's Pocket PC OS after all. The screen had much better resolution than I expected as well. I tested all of the business functions, Word, Excel, MS reader, etc... They were just fine, and I will probably use them, but frankly I have other more pressing interests: Games and music.
Well, forget about the games,... (read more)
