Summary: The Motorola Triumph finally brings a high-end Android smartphone to the prepaid market.
Pros: The Motorola Triumph has an attractive 4.1-inch WVGA display, decent multimedia features like a 5-megapixel camera that can record HD video, a front-facing VGA camera, HDMI output, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Performance is snappy.
Cons: The Motorola Triumph has squishy side buttons. Captured video has poor audio quality.
Excerpt: The most powerful prepaid smartphone in America gets a full review. At twice the price of the LG Optimus V, is it worth the cost of admission? Read more to find out. It’s pretty amazing that in the past three years how much the wireless landscape has really changed. When iPhone came out, it was $599, and people actually bought and used it as a prepaid phone at the same price that the postpay users bought into.
Summary: The term "prepaid phone" conjures up visions of a poorly constructed device with even worse performance. Thankfully, the Motorola Triumph for Virgin Mobile defies the stereotype. For $299, you'll walk away with a mid-level Android phone that mostly satisfies, from its light weight and big screen to its 1-GHz processor. The best part is that you'll save hundreds versus competing carriers over two years.
Motorola Triumph Reviewed - Does Motorola Triumph Over the Competition?
11 August 2011
Excerpt: The Motorola Triumph is looking to do as its name suggests, beat out the competition in the prepaid smartphone market. Featuring some impressive specifications that rival those found in contractually obligated higher end smartphones, the Triumph is looking...
Summary: After testing out the Motorola Triumph, I can say that it is one of the best prepaid smartphones currently on the market. The Samsung Galaxy Indulge offered by MetroPCS did better in my testing , but the Triumph is a solid second-place winner. At $300, the price is a little steep, but if you want the best from Virgin Mobile, then it's worth it. This seems to be the start of a new era for prepaid carriers so hopefully we'll see more competition for the Triumph.
Pros: Large display; front-facing camera; fast processor; great monthly plans from Virgin Mobile; decent battery life.
Cons: Slow 3G speeds; video capture quality could have been better; problems with sensitivity on the touchscreen.
Summary: The Motorola Triumph is the device to get if you are searching for a contract free phone. The Motorola Triumph is fast, has great battery life, and its screen is sharper than any of the qHD displays we have seen on Motorola's subsidised phones on larger carriers. I would recommend the Triumph to anyone looking for a new phone. It may not take the best pictures, but overall the phone is excellent.
Conclusion: To wrap things up I'll start by saying for anyone using Virgin Mobile that have yet to try an Android device this would be the perfect device for you. It is simple, and clean, with a very sleek design as well as running completely stock Android. This is a great phone to introduce someone into a smartphone, or Android in general. With good build quality like Motorola is known for, higher end mid-range specs and a 4.1" screen you can't go wrong for $300 off contact.
