Not that great of a phone
6 July 2014
Summary: Not that great of a phone. Trying to use this phone was a pain in the butt, the touch worked ok, and the keyboard felt good, but then it all failed. My first device that I had shut off completely, and you'd plug it in and it would light up on the LED but nothing would happen.
Pros: As a phone it's terriffic. Decent camera quality, good internet when WAN is available.
Cons: Very slow operations. Windows Mobile runs terribly on this phone (perhaps all phones, I don't know). When relying on Sprinternet the speed is even slower. More or less not usable. If you don't keep the case, your pocket will press buttons all day reducing the effective battery life to squat.
Pros: Endless possibilities with software. Software is great that comes with the phone. WiFi is awesome! Mooch off of some public WiFi and you have a very small laptop in the palm of your hand. You can do anything with this.
Cons: Touchscreen died after 6 months so in order to get anywhere, one had to do everything the hard way with the buttons. Many of the buttons went bad too. Mostly on the bottom of the keyboard. The down button died too on the face of the phone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
