Low quality display, Sluggish performance, Horrible call quality
Let's talk about cost briefly here, as the Samsung Gravity Q for T-Mobile requires a down payment of $9.99 up front, then 24 monthly installment payments of $6 each, which brings its total cost to $153.99. Looking at the figure, it's not that bad, but come on, this is a quick messaging device we're dealing with here. We can name a host of other prepaid entry-level Android smartphones that deliver a significantly better experience than this.
Great web browser
Though the iPhone 3G still has flaws and lacks some crucial features, it offers significant improvements that make it worth the upgrade. The faster 3G browsing experience and the GPS support are nice. The application store, which is available on the original iPhone as well, is the cherry on top. Hopefully the future will bring MMS and video recording, as we continue to be surprised that a media-centric device lacks these features.
With its faster networking, GPS for location-based services and, best of all, the App Store, Apple takes a significant step forward with the iPhone 3G as a consumer-centric device. This phone is special, and though it's not for everyone (hardware keyboard lovers need not apply), it is a great choice for consumers who wants a true convergence device. It's not only a decent phone, it's the best iPod on the market and the best portable Web browser money can buy.
Fast, fantastic touch screen experience
The iPhone 3G is certainly the most fun and easy to use phone available today and for the foreseeable future. Yet it brings smartphone features to the table and a very powerful Internet experience-- two things not usually associated with fun and easy. If AT&T has good service in your area and you like touch screens, the iPhone is certainly worth the $199 (8 gig) to $299 (16 gig) price of admission.
Bright, high-resolution screen
If you've been cautious and waited a year for the second generation of iPhone, your patience will be rewarded. The iPhone 3G improves on the original iPhone's audio quality, offers access to a faster data network, and sports built-in GPS functionality. You'll also be getting in on the ground floor of the exciting new world of third-party software written for the iPhone. And business users will appreciate the iPhone's new Exchange syncing features.
After the success of the E50 from Nokia, there was a demand for a something better in a similar package. That's when Nokia launched the E51. While the E50 was promising for an average user, the E51 packages power that'll suffice for demanding users. Can the E51 provide the power that many users expect with its conservative design? Let's find out.
The pictures are so nice it is hard to believe they came from a phone.
I would keep the Sanyo M1 in a heartbeat. Not everything is perfect about it but basics are good: sound quality, speakerphone and other strong features make it a no-brainer choice for average to almost-power-users. Pros Cons The Sanyo M1 was meant for multimedia use: 2-megapixel camera with auto-focus, 1GB of built-in memory with USB Mass Storage profile (you can connect it to your computer and add or remove files to it just like with a memory card), external music controls and a strong...
sound good, clean and accurate
The Sanyo M1 may not be as flashy or thin as, say, the Motorola or the Samsung , and your friends won't crowd around when you take it our of your pocket. But what it lacks in style it makes up for in substance. The phone handles audio very well, video better than most, and, most importantly, boasts excellent call quality.
Sanyo’s M1 (available from Sprint for $199.99 USD with the usual rebates and contract restrictions) is a superior cell phone.
Sanyo’s M1 (available from Sprint for $199.99 USD with the usual rebates and contract restrictions) is a superior cell phone. It’s light, it’s relatively compact, it delivers plenty of volume for voice and ring tones, and it gets great reception. Its 2 MP camera takes surprisingly blur-free pictures, and it has a bright LCD screen that displays the numbers you’re calling in such a large font that even the thickest Coke-bottle glasses wearer will be able to see.
very good business phone
The HP iPAQ 910c Business Messenger is, as its name implies, a very good business phone. Like the BlackBerry Curve, it proves that business phones can be attractive and we do like the looks and compact size. It's a dream phone for those who love the T-Mobile Dash, Moto Q9 and BlackJack II but want Windows Mobile Pro rather than standard edition. The QWERTY-bar design is ever-popular in the US and we do love it for easier one-handed operation and expedience.
When 10 years have passed and people look back on the mobile phones of days gone by, I believe they will invariably look upon Apple's iPhone as the beginning of a new era. The iPhone's user interface goes beyond changing the rules: it creates its own new game to play. Touch screens have been found in some mobile phones for a long time, but never have they been used so intuitively and easily.
Whole new user interface
Apple has defintiely come up with a revolution in cell phone usability; the iPhone pioneers a whole new user interface that works very effectively. There are only a few buttons on the device bacause you don't need the other buttons. But the other features of the device are either evolutionary or somewat retrograde. The camera, for instance, is merely adequate, and the EDGE data connection is very slow and makes Web browsing a somewhat painful experience.
Outstanding web browser and iPod features.
The iPhone is an extremely well designed and executed product that pushes the envelope in handheld devices. It's an excellent phone, an exceptional new version of the iPod, and a brilliant web browser, plus a good mobile email machine and general organizer. The iPhone's unique approach to software shoots high above the usability of the software in competing smartphones.
It's designed for users who want to keep on top of their social lifestyle rather than their workload, and for teens and twenty-somethings, the Sidekick is a solid and fun device.
The bottom line: The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 brings some notable additions, such as Bluetooth and an MP3 player, and continues to be a solid messaging device for the younger crowd; we just wish it had a better screen.
Unpacking the Sidekick 3 is nice and simple.
Both celebrities and consumers have indulged themselves in T-Mobile’s Sidekick. The personal communication device is perfect for keeping in touch with friends, as well as e-mail and web browsing. Although the Sidekick II was immensely popular, it was lacking some much-needed features such as Bluetooth and EDGE. With the introduction of T-Mobile’s Sidekick 3 in July, many of these problems and missing features will be addressed.
best full-QWERTY phone
Like the other phones we've seen based on the HTC Touch Pro2 design, the HTC Tilt 2 on AT&T is Windows Mobile at its best. For business users, the phone packs calling features that put it leagues beyond the competition, with conference calls that sound great and innovative in-call screens that put relevant info about your contacts at your fingertips.
We tested the quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) HTC Touch Cruise in San Francisco using AT&T service and call quality was decent.
The bottom line: The HTC Touch Cruise offers road warriors and travel lovers great navigation features in a compact smartphone; we just wish it had a better screen.
