Excerpt: This is honestly one of the worst phones I have EVER had, my screen cracked within a month of having it from just being in my purse. It now shuts off if I put it down to hard, randomly shuts its self off, freezes and the battery has to be pulled out and when it reboots it takes a bar and a half of battery the battery only lasts a day if that and I am not on it all day and just recently I stopped receaving texts and phone calls and I couldnt call out I had to completely...
Backberry Storm2 9550's attempt at upgrading the Blackberry...
9 September 2012
Excerpt: When I inititally decided to go with Verizon, I decided on the Blackberry Storm 2 beacus of the great reviews. I, myself, have always owned a Blackberry with other providers and have always loved its size, durability and ease of use. When I first received this phone by mail, I opened the box and pulled it out of its packaging. Upon inspection of the phone, its seems like a nice looking modern version of the Blackberry. I would have never known it was a blackberry.
A great phone at first, but will become slow and freezes!

Excerpt: This phone is a very good phone for just about anything you want to do internet, applications, navigation and so much more, it also takes awesome pictures! But thourghout time the phone becomes very slow and will freeze all the time, this is one of the down falls about the phone! Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Pros: Lots of good apps available. I love the large touch screen.
Cons: I am on my 4th Storn II. All have had the same problem. The sound on phone calls has a lot of squawks and other electronic distortions, to the point that I can't understand what the caller is saying.
"Mediocre Product. The technology is not yet perfected."

Pros: Good improvement over Storm 1. More responsive and accurate typing than Storm 1..
Cons: telephone doesn't work properly, makes loud digital type interference noises during conversations, especailly if both parties start to say something at the same time. Also relatively slow browser
Excerpt: I upgraded my original Blackberry to the Storm 2 and was very excited at first. I like the organizational features of Blackberry and the ease of a touch screen, however, I dislike that Blackberry lacks a contract with certain vendors and does not provide for a pleasant browsing experience when searching the web or attempting to use this "smartphone" for what other smartphones are capible of doing.
