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
