Excerpt: Pros: I love the keyboard and the PDA capabilities. Also, we found a way to get MS Word onto the phone so that i can make documents and not just review them. That's fun. I've only owned for 3 days, which brings me to my negatives... Cons: My battery is dead for the fourth time and three days.
Excerpt: VZW SMT5800 (CDMA Version) After using it for over a week, I find it practical, functional & somewhat easy to use. I think I'll keep it for a while. Pros: 1)Great reception: haven't dropped a call yet. 2)Good form Factor: small, light & yet functional. Its phone 1st and PDA 2nd.
Excerpt: pros: This phone is awesom 8 gigs micro SDHC card. Feels like a phone not a pda Good battery life. cons:number pads on front are very spongy no zoom No WIFI it needs to be touched up to be the perfect phone. I give it a 7 out of 10 score.
Excerpt: This is my first smartphone, but I have owned PDA's in the past so I'm somewhat familiar with the interface. I've had this phone for a week now so here are my opinions: Pros: Small, lightweight and comfortable to hold. Keyboard has already become second nature to type on.
Excerpt: Good device overall, with the following observations. Pros: Nice integration of phone and PDA. Light and small for its functionality. Cons: The slide out drawer does not seat firmly in the closed postion givng the phone a loose and flimsy feel when being used in phone mode.

Excerpt: Wow... (Cons) What can I say about the 5800. Or should I say where do I start. The phone isn't bad but to me its not great. Is it me or does everyone have this really bad problem with your phone freezing up like crazy. Today my phone froze while my phone was ringing.
Excerpt: As a long time PDA phone user, I was (am?) leery about “downgrading” from the Windows Mobile Professional Edition to the Standard Edition. My reasons for switching were basically due to the fact that I was looking for a more effective (for me) form factor.
Excerpt: Splitting hairs maybe, but this is not the Verizon unit. phonearena has merely replaced the HTC S20 Libra reviews for the Verizon unit because they are ostensibly the same, but who knows what bug fixes have occurred in the 7 months between the two releases.
Excerpt: Keys are a little small for the large-fingered, particularly on the keyboard, however the phone has a nice design to it. Windows Mobile 6 runs well, although app support for the phone seems missing: Many of the applications and games I attempt to install state "they were not designed for this...
