One of the things that I noticed on the iPAQ H3850 is, its lightning fast processor called the StrongArm, you get smooth scrolls through the screens and menus and the launching and closing of applications. This one feels so much lighter than the other models, makes a difference especially when carrying your PDA on your pocket while walking and running.


The size of this PDA is great even with a protective cover. The iTask button is on a very bad position, having your thumb in trouble clicking when the protective case is on. The 5-way directional keypad is easy to use; the up and down clicks are light to the touch to perform, however the left and right clicks require you to put more pressure in it, making it somewhat uneasy to use in games that uses a cursor pad for movement. It should make you use the same pressure on all directions.


The screen brightness is excellent amd the technology lets you see the colors with direct light applied on the screen. It has a 64,000 color screen which makes the colors vibrant, crisp and clear. The automatic brightness sometimes behaves strangely when moving from shadows and to direct sunlight, but reacts fairly quickly to ambient light changes


Compaq claims a 10-12 hour battery life but this can only be achieved when the brightmess is turned-off. The battery is not removable and replaceable because it is internally built in. This PDA also doesn’t have an internal compact flash slot and only allows SD cards to fit in.The only way to use the CF card in the iPAQ is to use the Compact flash sleeve which make the unit bulkier and less portable, but you do get a battery expansion pack and a built in protective cover. The slim built in battery makes your iPAQ have a double battery life.


This PDA has a great value and excellent features, so I recommend this to anyone out there.
