Keyboard is better than the DROID Pro, but still a bit stiff
The XPRT is the first Motorola CDMA device Sprint has carried in quite some time and marks the beginning of a renewed relationship between the two companies. While it may be an older device on the market, it is a good one and is needed in Sprint's lineup.
great pictures and videos
If you're looking for one of the best overall smartphones, let alone Sprint's most powerful Android business phone, the Xprt should be the first stop on your visit to the Sprint store. The phone was surprisingly fast, exhibited a fantastic battery life, adorned from head to toe with IT security and corporate email options, and showed us that a business phone could also take some great pictures and videos as well.
Tiny keyboard, display not among the best.
If you're looking for a QWERTYbar Android smartphone, and perhaps are weaning yourself from a BlackBerry, the Motorola XPRT offers excellent build quality, a more comfortable and less finger-print loving back than the Droid Pro and a decent keyboard. The keyboard can't compete with RIM's better BlackBerry keyboard, but it's passable and allows for a more pocketable phone vs. the Samsung Epic 4G and other side-slider QWERTY Android smartphones.
Massive battery power
The time that's passed since the Motorola XPRT's cousin the Droid Pro was released, and the changes that have been made in the Sprint version, make it even more the machine that it was originally designed as--a companion to business travellers. The Droid Pro's biggest drawback, it's rather shallow battery life, has been dealt with in spectacular fashion, leaving the XPRT with a healthy battery surplus.
The Motorola XPRT easily ranks in as a 'Good' smartphone for business level users. While RIM is slowly trying to make its return with the BlackBerry, signs are pointing to a possible slow death. For BlackBerry users looking to hop onto Android, the Motorola XPRT is a solid choice. Motorola did a great job making the XPRT a business oriented phone, with the small nuances such as the notification light, to the extremely helpful security features such as encryption and remote wiping.
It may not be a top end phone it's where top tier devices were 6-8 months ago
This here is what we'd call the business Android phone. While it may not be a top end phone it's where top tier devices were 6-8 months ago and will make any user happy. If you want a physical keyboard without having a large slider phone this is your device. If you are in it for browsing the web or gaming I'd highly suggest you look elsewhere but for the business minded this is perfect.
Good call quality and battery life
Overall, the Motorola XPRT is a good performer with good call quality and battery life. There is almost no background noise, callers sound natural and clear, and the speakerphone is definitely of high quality. The battery should last from 7 to 8 hours of continuous talk time, and about a solid day of mixed usage.
Great keypad design
Overall, the LG GD900 Crystal is a very intriguing handset, with a great touch sensitive keypad. It also has a pretty decent web browser, and with Dolby Mobile and DivX support the music and video players are pretty decent as well. However, the messaging experience on this device is unforgivably poor, and is a real deal-breaker for me. Add-in the disappointing camera and video camera and the slow 3G connectivity, and the appeal of the keypad seems less significant.
Good construction & durability
We canâ??t really overstate how solid this phone feels. The soft-touch paint offers great grip and at 4.06oz the weight is nearly perfect for its size. The dimensions are also good; unlike the Hero there is not a lot of wasted space around the display so the phone is not longer than it needs to be. The LG Optimus S feels equally good in the hand, the pocket and against your face.
Smooth 2D 1080p video recording.
If you're happy to take a punt on glasses-free 3D being here to stay, the 3D features of the LG Optimus 3D are certainly enough to warrant its high price. The 3D video's great, with a genuine sense of depth coming across in the footage.
The worry is, if you take a load of 3D photos and videos now, are they going to be viewable five or 10 years down the line?
Easy to use
The LG Optimus One is quite simply some phone. As a budget smartphone, it more than gets the job done and if you can find it on a good deal, there's no reason for you to avoid it. However, equally there's little to really make us recommend it. Frankly, the Orange San Francisco still stands out as the bargain choice at the moment.
Picture quality is surprisingly bright and defined for a phone in this class, even though the Optimus S relies on plastic rather than high-quality glass.
It might not have the best camera, or highest battery life/call quality performance, but the LG Optimus S for Sprint is certainly one fast little bugger that offers more than most would bargain for at $50 after its $100 mail-in rebate. Android 2.2 gives the phone a speed boost, and we're covered with Google applications right out of the box. There's also Sprint IDs, which satisfies our multiple personalities, and plenty of fresh new content piped in from the Android Market.
inbound sound was very clear.
When you look at the offerings from Verizon Wireless (and Sprint) today, there is no doubt that the Tour is the best CDMA network BlackBerry smartphone on offer today. It has some updated features when compared to the Bold, but lacks the elder BlackBerry's sex appeal, rich looks, and call audio quality. The Tour compares well with the Curve 8900 if you don't mind the extra weight and have no need for WiFi. But for a BlackBerry user on a CDMA network, it doesn't get better than this.
Call quality was very good in my test calls.
The BlackBerry Tour boasts a very fair price, a top-notch design, and some of the best e-mail features around. If it only supported Wi-Fi, the Tour would likely earn my vote for the best BlackBerry smartphone yet. As it stands though, that honor still belongs to the BlackBerry Bold, which manages to offer support for both Wi-Fi and 3G networks.
very decent music player
For the BlackBerry 8830 or the Curve 8330 users, the BlackBerry Tour 9630 is the logical upgrade. The processor is twice as fast and memory more than doubled from the BlackBerry Curve 8330. The Tour gets the new styling and looks great for a BlackBerry. It has a fresher OS, newer web browser and a media player that supports more codecs. You get the same excellent push email and IM experience, and for the business users, the Tour offers many levels of security.
the perfect phone
Targeting the business professional always on the go, whether it’s across the ocean or across town, Canada-based Research In Motion released the first global 3G BlackBerry into the wild. Sharing design features with last year’s Bold and Storm , the Tour marries everything BlackBerry devices are known for with the best Verizon data speeds we’ve seen.
Snappy, Stable OS.
Reliance is selling the Blackberry Tour in India for Rs. 27,990. The Tour delivers exactly what users expect from a BlackBerry: an excellent keyboard; a slick design; and a hearty, messaging-friendly operating system. But at that price the lack of Wi-Fi is seems unforgiveable in a business-class smartphone. Reliance is selling the Blackberry Tour in India for Rs. 27,990.
The image quality is excellent with good brightness, good contrast and vivid colors.
The Tour 9630 is the fastest Blackberry ever introduced and it is a business smartphone. It has good features and a stylish design. But the lack of the Wi-Fi connectivity increases the cost of Internet usage and data transfer. This is a major drawback of the handset. Also the low battery performance is a downside.
the video quality is really brilliant, thanks for the excellent high resolution screen.
The BlackBerry Tour 9630 is still remains is a piece of excellent work by RIM. The decent display and the useful keyboard make it be the one of the finest smartphone in the market. We can tolerate with the absence of some options in phone, but the lack of WiFi is unforgivable. It is really a big shame for a high-end business phone like this. It could be the biggest weakness of this handset.
Excellent full QWERTY keyboard.
With an excellent keyboard and a strong set of enterprise features, the Bold 9650 is ideal for business usersâ?? even though it is lacking a bit in the innovation department. With an excellent keyboard and a strong set of enterprise features, the Bold 9650 is ideal for business usersâ?? even though it is lacking a bit in the innovation department. The best BlackBerry available, the Bold 9700 packs a multitude of features into a sophisticated, slimmed-down design.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850 is a bit of an anomaly, much like RIM's previous efforts at an all-touchscreen smartphone. It won't appeal to the BlackBerry faithful, who likely demand a real, hardware QWERTY keyboard (and based on the virtual keyboard packaged with the 9850, rightfully so), and it isn't compelling enough to attract those who are in the market for a smartphone with a big touchscreen.
Touchscreen form factor finally done right
This is the device that RIM should've put out three years ago when they embarked on the touchscreen form factor with the original Storm 9530. As we know, the key to success in the industry is partly related to timing, and it's remarkable to witness that RIM is finally coming around to producing a decent all touch BlackBerry. Needless to say, we're glad to see that they decided to completely drop all the gimmicks found with both Storm iterations.
The $149 BlackBerry Torch 9850 is RIM's best attempt yet at wooing consumers who want a smartphone with a large display but don't want to give up BlackBerry standout features such as secure push e-mail and world phone capability. Still, RIM has a ways to go. For $99, shoppers can take home the EVO Shift 4G, which offers both a physical and a virtual keyboard as well as 4G data and Android's ever-expanding Marketplace.
No doubt, the BlackBerry Torch 9850 is a lot of phone for $149 with contract. It has all the appeal of a BlackBerry minus the hardware keyboard, and we know that's a deal breaker for some of you (consider the BlackBerry Bold 9930 instead). But if you're willing to venture into virtual keyboard territory and covet the large touchscreens your iPhone and Android-toting friends enjoy, the Torch 9850 has its appeal.
A solid, capable little smartphone
The Torch 9850 is a solid, capable little smartphone, and BlackBerry 7's UI arguably suits the all-touch display most of all. With the 1.2GHz processor RIM's handsets no longer feel like the slowest devices in the pack, and while we'd welcome more metal and less plastic in the construction, the styling is a reasonably successful compromise between classic RIM functionality and the curviness of a consumer device.
new media interface
Though Windows Mobile 6 was an improvement, and we definitely liked DocumentsToGo, the multimedia improvements that Verizon Wireless has made to the Motorola Q9m have only made things more complicated. Besides which, the device was still slow. The interface was slow, programs opened slowly and Internet Explorer, while competent in layout and imaging, was a bit sluggish.
