We've heaped praise on the HTC Radar 4G (review) for awhile now--yes, it's a "mid-range" Windows Phone but it's a darn good mid-range phone, one that we use daily. So it's nice to see we're not alone as the Radar, a relatively new phone on the TMo network, is the second highest rated phone on their site. With 76 reviews in it averages at a nice 4.7 average rating (out of 5), only following the myTouch Q (which has a 4.9 average but only 14 reviews).
Unfortunately, that has not turned into sales as the phone is not even in the top ten. But one thing that is clear, the Radar 4G has some dedicated users who felt strong enough to rate it that high--that's a good sign and hopefully it will translate into more users adopting the phone.

FYI The Titan and Focus S are the First and 3rd(respectivly) highest rated smart phones on ATT....
FWIW, the Motorola CLIQ 2 is the only device that sells at the same price as the Radar 4G and is ranked higher in terms of sales. Everything else is cheaper and a vast majority of them are free.
At Verizon, the Gen-1 Trophy is rated #6 among smartphones and #13 overall - the top ten being dominated by tablets. They're apparently lazy with their rating algorithm as all the top phones currently show a 4.5/5 rating, but the Trophy dominates with 746 reviews while the others have about 150 or less. Good show indeed.
All windows phone will top the rankings... The os is just amazing...I just wished tmo made the radar bigger...
