Summary: Motorola is one cheap company. Most certainly NOT on the level of Apple's iPhone. This phone is made with substandard parts that break easy. Plus, Motorola tries to find any reason to refuse to repair the phone. For example, my phone broke while in my backpack. It was new. one week old. The little pressure on the phone from the stuff in my bag cracked something under the screen. You would never know it was broken. Everything on the outside looked new with no scratches.
Summary: I was really excited when it came. After a short use i quickly learned that the battery would not stay charged. Battery power fluctuated up and down quickly. Would Charge over nite and it would show 60% charged. After repeated attempts to maintain phone connected to web for data it never does. 5 calls to tech support only solution offered was a master reset. I did not buy it to have to reset it repeatedly to work right for short periods of time.
Summary: Well my phone broke, so I was forced to upgrade. I chose the i1 after spending 10 minutes with the in store display. This was my first touch screen phone. I returned it to the Sprint store after just 12 hours. It was so horrible, I can't believe this is sold. Here is the bad: Right out of the box, the phone is so slow with typing on the keyboard. This is without any apps downloaded. Sometimes the phone keeps up with you, but then in the middle of the sentence, it lags.
Excerpt: I bought this phone for Boost Mobile for $50 unlimited. I thought I would try out my first ever smartphone, so I decided to get the Motorola i1with a no contract. Well at first I kinda liked the phone, trying to figure out all the apps and features, but then when I got down to the meat of using the phone, i.e. texting and making calls, I discovered that this phone is horrible!
Pros: $50.00 a month unlimited talk, text, data
Cons: old iDEN Network, 1.5 Android- totally outdated, Small screen, Voice Quality is bad, slow texting if any, Good luck getting a full signal bar
Conclusion: Lo tuve 6 meses, de un dia para el otro dejo de funcionar, no tenia señal, lo lleve a motorola y me dijeron que no sirve mas, es decir $1700 a la basura, que supuestamente estaba golpeado (nunca se me cayo). Mas alla de la mala experiencia, no lo recomiendo, es preferible un smart phone con 3g y un nextel baratito con seguro, Nunca pude usar bien el gps, sin wi fi no navega bien, y es poco practico para el uso de radio.
Pros: android, camara de 5mp, con wi fi funciona de maravilla, mucha facha, el telefono es hermoso, muy intuitivo en el uso
Cons: cuando baja mails, no entran llamadas (hay que bajar una actualizacion y se soluciona a medias), android viejo, gps, poco exacto, lento, no es util para usar en el transito, sin wi fi, se arrastra, y no entran llamadas, bluetooth sin capacidad de transferencia de archivos (hay que bajar aplicaciones), super delicado, si se te rompe es dificil que lo reparen, no tiene seguro y la garantia de un año no te cubre nada!!, nextel no vende holders, tenes que compar chinos, q...
