Hard, plastic case is not conducive to a ruggedized device
The Samsung Rugby III isn't a sleek phone, nor is it a smart phone. It is intended to be a big, rugged device that can withstand rough environments. While it performed as expected as a phone, it unfortunately was not able to meet the advertised certifications. The only reason you buy a phone like the Rugby III is because you're hard on them, and it doesn't seem like the phone can stand up to that kind of punishment.
Great phone, long lasting battery life, and strong signal
This is one of the best phones MetroPCS has to offer. The sleek design, easy to use, light weight phone has all the basic features any user needs in a phone but what I truly liked about this phone is the long lasting batter life and great signal. I have used similar phones in the past, all from metro and they had week signal, cheap quality, and over heating problems. After buying this phone I no longer had to deal with any of those issues.
Very ugly UI
The LG Select is a sly phone, it's one of those phones you buy thinking "I'm just going to use it for calls and texting", and while it can do both, the other traits start to drag it down. Eventually the phone will start getting on your nerves every time you fire up the browser in an emergency, or suddenly find yourself in an area with less then utopian network coverage.
This phone has held up for months now
I decided to give this G'Zone phone a try and have LOVED it, better than any phone I've had yet. Nothing has cracked or broken, I've dropped it several times, and it is still going strong. I rely on my phone heavily in order to run my business, and it has been trustworthy and reliable. I'm tough on phones, but this one has done awesome so far. I just have to be sure I don't lose it in a snowbank somewhere.
Great calling quality
Yes, the Samsung T259 makes for a good solution for those who don't want to be bothered with smartphones especially if calling is placed highly on the list. Moreover, it still packs on some useful features, like Social Networking access, but isn't accompanied with many complexities to confuse people.
Audio was more than loud enough to listen to music while sitting at my desk.
When the BlackBerry Style 9670 was announced, a few people commented that it was an ugly phone, making it possibly undesirable. To the contrary, I find it to be an attractive phone. Its glossy face and bright external display remind me a bit of a glowing pebble, and I like being able to see if I have new messages at a glance. I've used better keyboards on BlackBerry smartphones before, but the Style's keyboard is by no means a deal breaker.
most images and text looked clear enough.
In the past, you've been able to get a BlackBerry smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, or a BlackBerry smartphone that comes in a convenient flip-style form factor. But you haven't been able to get one that offers both -- until now. RIM and Sprint have announced the BlackBerry Style 9670 smartphone, the first flip-style BlackBerry to offer a full QWERTY keyboard. Price and Availability.
good smart phone
If you like the clamshell design and you want a messaging phone that can do more, the Style is a solid choice for $99. With its relatively snappy performance and a good camera, this device is one of the best mid-range offerings on Sprint. In fact, in some ways the Style is more satisfying than the $199 Torch on AT&T because you don't have to contend with a sluggish touch interface.
If you'd like a BlackBerry that can survive even tight jeans pockets, or wish to have a full QWERTY BlackBerry that's in a clamshell form, the BlackBerry Style is just the thing. Hiding underneath that pretty flip there's a fast BlackBerry smartphone with a great screen, awesome audio, a very nice camera and the full BlackBerry messaging and app experience. Is the new OS BlackBerry 6 revolutionary or will the new web browser blow your mind? No.
It’s not often you hear the words “smart flip phone” that is until you meet Sprint's Blackberry Style 9670.
Overall, the BlackBerry Style is an excellent choice for BlackBerry users looking for a phone with reliable hardware, excellent voice features and basic web computing capabilities. Running on 0S 6, it has similar speed to its touchscreen cousin, the Torch, but in the flip smartphone form factor. It's the perfect hybrid for someone who wants all the features of a flip phone, which is said to be more conducive for talking, with the capabilities of a smartphone.
Excellent voice quality, Practical, compact clamshell design, Full QWERTY keyboard, Respectable 5-megapixel camera, Speedy OS navigation, Sharp, bright interior and exterior screens, Affordable.
BlackBerry and style go together something like Razor scooters and cool, which is to say, they don’t. RIM may have perfected a straight-laced design that goes well with two-piece suits, polos and khakis, but originality, fashion and style are not words typically associated with the brand. The company attempts to break that mold with the purposefully named Style, a BlackBerry that discards business aspirations for a dress-down design destined for denim.
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.
Rugged, long lasting, and perfect for people who don't do more than text and talk
I've owned this phone for nearly four years and I love it! I've dropped it and soaked it, and it still works perfectly. It has lots of nice features like a notebook function for jotting notes to yourself, a camera (although the photos aren't as crisp as with more hi-tech phones), alarm clock, calculator and stop watch. The original battery (from Verizon) didn't last more than a year, but replacements are inexpensive, and I adore this phone overall.
Stylish clamshell design, Bluetooth with A2DP, FM radio, microSD storage slot, price.
Samsung's E2510 is an entry-level flip phone boasting some features that are normally reserved for much more expensive handsets. It's not perfect, but at just $59, this is probably the best value mobile phone we've ever reviewed and a must if your budget is restricted.
This phone is exactly what someone needs if they are hard on phones. This phone is shock resistant, dust and water resistant! The speaker phone is really loud and the numbers are large and view-able. One of the best things about this phone is that the battery will last a couple days without charging it! I love this phone!
