If you are the adventurous type, and want a touchscreen phone with basic functionality and solid design, then you can take the HTC Smart for a spin.

The sturdy design of the HTC Smart probably has something to do with the fact that it's become a company trademark to grace its phones with high-quality and enduring materials. Indeed, the HTC Smart exudes that premium feel so typical of HTC's products.

Qualcomm's Brew MP, on the other hand, seems a bit rough around the edges, although HTC's Sense UI on top of it brings a great deal of familiarity to the interface. At this point though, it is a typical non-smart platform experience, due to the total lack of additional applications for the Smart.

Cheap touchscreen phone with attractive interface

It's short on some of the social-networking features we crave, but, for a budget phone, it does a good job of surfing the Web.

Price-wise, the Smart is up against some tough competition, though. We'd definitely choose it over the cheesy Samsung Diva, but the T-Mobile Pulse Mini packs in more features, and the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic opens the door to downloading more music and apps from Nokia's Ovi Store.
