Though the HTC Imagio touts itself as a multimedia smartphone, it is not as flashy as other multimedia-focused handhelds. This can be not to say it isn't attractive; indeed, we love the big touch-screen display as well as the smooth edges and tapered corners. But the dimpled bezel surrounding the display that doubles as the speaker, and also the thick plastic casing gives it more of a hefty industrial feel. The phone measures 4.6 inches tall by 2.4 inches wide by zero.5 inch thick and weighing 5.25 ounces, the HTC Imagio has quite a sturdy construction and is not the least flimsy or cheap. The back of the phone is partially covered in a matte-black soft-touch finish, which supplies it a comfortable feel in the hand.

By far the most stunning thing about the Imagio's appearance is its large 3.6-inch WVGA touch screen. It has 65K color output, 480 x 800 pixel resolution, and a smooth glass surface, that lead to elegant crisp pictures and sharp text. The extra screen real estate lends itself well to web page scrolling and video viewing as well. Also handy is the built-in accelerometer that switches the screen from portrait to landscape mode when you rotate the phone. This is only applicable in certain circumstances, though, like with the web browser, e-mail, photos, and videos.

Even though the Verizon Wireless HTC Imagio Phone does not have the Touch branding, it uses HTC's TouchFlo 3D. Like that on the HTC touch Pro2, you get additional tabs for the Calendar and Stock quotes, and the ability to add and remove tabs on the Home screen. We also like that the Start menu is presented in a grid view that you'll be able to customize with completely different apps and settings.

The HTC Imagio Phone has a resistive touch screen rather than a capacitive one. The touch screen felt responsive and easy to use, even when we were just using our fingers rather than the included stylus. The onscreen QWERTY keyboard is good, especially since it supports XT9 auto word complete and tapping the keys provides haptic feedback. We do prefer using the keyboard in landscape mode rather than in portrait mode, however, as the keys are somewhat bigger, thus leading to fewer mistakes.

The zoom in/out bar underneath the display helped a lot when reading and choosing hyperlinks in the Web Browser as well, since you could just zoom in easily by sliding your finger on the bar. It will take a couple of seconds for the page to render when zooming in, though. Under the zoom controls are the Talk and End/Power keys, a media key, the Start menu key, and a back key. The media key may be mapped to any media application, like V Cast TV, V cast Video, or the music player. The keys are flat, but there is enough delineation between every key that they weren't hard to press.

The volume rocker is on the right spine and also the mini-USB port and 3.5mm headset jack are on the bottom. On the back is the camera lens and an antenna that doubles as a kickstand; merely press the release button and it will pop out. This way you'll be able to set this Verizon Phone on a flat surface and watch videos as if it were a portable TV. Also on the back toward the lower right is the stylus compartment. The microSD card slot is inconveniently placed behind the battery cover on the right side.
