The HTC 7 Mozart is one of three Windows Phone handsets available from HTC in the UK at launch, and has a focus on high-fidelity audio with Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound built in. It is also the only Windows Phone product from HTC with a Qualcomm S2 Generation chipset. All others use the S1 generation (As of August 20, 2011).
Available exclusively on Orange from 21 October, the HTC 7 Mozart is very similar in size and styling to many other HTC handsets, save that it boasts the three standard buttons below the screen specified by Microsoft across all Windows Phone devices.
Specifications: Windows Phone OS, 1 GHz Snapdragon QSD8250 processor, 512 MB ROM, 576 MB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, 3.7-inch touch screen with 800 x 480 pixels, HSPA up to 7.2Mbit/s, quad-band GSM, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 8-megapixel camera with xenon flash (supports 720p video capture).
There was a lot of speculation whether HTC Mozart was to get the 7.8 Update. This was confirmed by HTC and the update was released on 14/03/2013. The most recent update is the Build 7.10.8862.144 live tile fix which can be downloaded via Zune.
Since 2012, people have reported they were able to upgrade to 7.8 RTM using a cab sender utility. This method of upgrading has proved successful to many people but it is only recommended for advanced users.
The 7.8 update gives the Mozart increased performance and battery life has an easy to spot improvement. The standard life on Windows Phone 7.5 was reported at around 5 hours of heavy usage. Windows Phone 7.8 however has increased battery life up to 10 hours on heavy usage.
