Motorola Admiral

16 June 2012
  • Conclusion: As Sprint's first push-to-talk smartphone, the Motorola Admiral carves out its own niche. Still, as Colon points out, "Sprint has other keyboarded smartphones… that have larger screens and faster data speeds," such as the Samsung Epic 4G and HTC's EVO Shift 4G.
  • Pros: Great keyboard, Very durable, Push-to-talk service, Excellent battery life, Can use as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, Good call quality
  • Cons: Weak camera, Small screen, No 4G access, MicroSD card under battery

It looks like a BlackBerry, but it's running Android — is that a winning combination?

27 December 2011
  • Summary: I’d recommend the Admiral over any BlackBerry handset on the market, simply because it runs Android. But there’s nothing admirable about the Admiral; it’s just a good messaging phone with a good keyboard, though not necessarily a good phone phone.
  • Pros: Candybar form factor, Good keyboard, Solid battery life
  • Cons: Small, washed-out display, Trouble differentiating taps from scrolls, Mediocre performance

Expert Review

8 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Motorola Admiral is a middle-of-the-pack device in Sprint’s lineup, but it has its significant strengths. The keyboard is great, feel and build quality are very good and the Admiral is the first Direct Connect smartphone that you can actually use data with. Even if the DC service isn’t for you, this is the best portrait Android device that we’ve used thanks to the well thought out design and the Military Spec trimmings.
  • Pros: Great keyboard, Good overall design with Military Spec toughness, Quick OS performance, Great call quality and battery life
  • Cons: Camera underperforms, Some water resistance would be nice
