I wouldn't buy if I knew...
25 September 2010
Summary: The good things are self evident. Now for the bad. 1. poor battery life. Buy 3500mah battery & door fixes this problem. 2. not enough volume. In a louder than library environment, on speakerphone or not, it can be difficult to hear. 3. useless preloaded apps cannot be uninstalled. annoying. The phone needs to be rooted in order to remove them. 4. user manual touches on the basics only. But there are forums & youtube videos to help. 5.
Excerpt: This phone is an absolute waste for the business user. It's got absolutely no good UI enhancements, so without something like the SPB Software House applications, it's impossible to do much of anything. Even creating a text message or looking up a contact is a pain. The only upside is a nice big QWERTY keyboard. Applications are wicked slow, and had to reboot constantly.
Excerpt: For my first pda phone, i am not impressed at all. I've had the mogul for about a year now and i cant wait to get a new phone already. well i've been feeling like that for the past six months so here are my pros and cons and cons and more cons. pros: -qwerty keyboard -many shortcut buttons -nice screen size -internal antenna -very good reception -evdo rev. a cons: -slow, very slow, every this is slow and unresponsive.
Excerpt: I was very impressed with the phone when I first bought it a few months ago. I love the notes, the email was really easy to set up, and with Windows Mobile, I was able to get all kinds of great apps to turn this phone into my all-purpose do-everything device. I ESPECIALLY love the combination of touch screen and keyboard, it makes typing, chatting, IMing, and IRCing a dream. But gradually over time, the phone started to degrade and got really buggy.
Excerpt: I reviewed this phone until I was Blue. It has been a major disappointment. The main issue I have with it is it consistently freezes when I use the Bluetooth feature. I bought it mainly to connect with my JVC bluetooth stereo to use handsfree calling. Absolutely makes me what to throw it against something hard & watch it break into pieces. Frustrating beyond belief.
Excerpt: This was the first phone I've ever owned from sprint. That being said, I guess my expectations were a little high. Had I written this review within the first month of ownership, like I suspect most others have, I would have given the phone a much higher score. Now that the phone has lost that "new car scent", I see it for what it really is. My department bought these phones for every new employee coming in. EVERYONE was impressed off the bat.
Excerpt: Had the phone and took it back because the volume for the ringer was set on the highest setting, yet the sound of the ringer/speaker was too low! Has anybody else experience the same problem? You think that when they built this high end phone that they would have put in a decent size speaker so you could hear it.
Excerpt: I probably cant say anything that has not been mentioned already. My biggest complaint is the battery life. It is terrible ! The windows draws too much from the battery. I could not go the day without charging it. For some people this is not a problem but for someone like me who travels via airplane daily it is. Speaking of traveling when you change time zones the clock will not change to the proper time.
