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
Summary: Responsive, functional, and tough, the Motorola Admiral makes a great workhorse phone, especially for anyone working in a tough environment. BlackBerry users will also find it a smooth transition if they want to move to the Android platform.
Pros: Running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the Motorola Admiral offers snappy performance, decent call quality, a QWERTY keyboard, and a scratch-resistant 3.1-inch touch screen. It also supports push-to-talk, and its durable design will withstand harsh environments.
Cons: The Motorola Admiral's photo and video quality could be better. The phone comes with just 4GB of internal storage and doesn't support 4G.
Review: Sprint Motorola Admiral with Direct Connect
10 November 2011
Excerpt: Sprint released the Motorola Admiral a few weeks ago, adding to its stable of enterprise-focused phones. The Admiral is the first Android-powered phone with Sprint Direct Connect, and looks to merge business and pleasure in equal measure.
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
Summary: Motorola Admiral è uno smartphone equipaggiato con sistema operativo Android 2.3 Gingerbread, fotocamera d 5 megapixel, batteria da 1.860 mAh, display da 3,1 pollici e risoluzione pari a 640x480 pixel
