The HTC Legend has a sculpted unibody design complemented with buttons and an optical trackball. Unlike the Desire and Hero the buttons are designed to look like as if they were a part of the screen. The optical trackball gives users an extra way to easily select smaller elements such as links on webpages. Beyond that I don't have much use for it as Android and the HTC Sense UI have been cleverly designed for touch input.
The phone is not too big, not too small and sits comfortably in my hand. Due to the aluminum body it feels a bit heavy but very solid. It has the same curved bottom as its predecessor the HTC Hero. I could have gone with the HTC Desire as well, but while it has better specs I think it's a tad too big and don't care much for its looks.
