Excerpt: I've had this phone nearly 2 years now. Rooted and used 2.3 Starship Triumph (excellent build--very stable) for over a year. Just flashed ICS rom this weekend and love it. Phone is a little slower, but overall, everything functions except for the video camera and HDMI port. Battery life is so so, but build quality feels very good for a prepaid. Would highly recommend this phone as a budget ICS root project!
Great upgrade from LG Optimus V. bigger screen, better camera(s), speakers
8 February 2013
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted an upgrade from the LG Optimus V without losing my $25/month plan. The features of this phone that I like are: front facing camera, better rear camera (5.0 mp plus flash), larger screen (4.1 inch), longer battery life, stronger speakers. I bought the phone used, and the previous owner took excellent care of it. At the time, the going rate on eBay for this phone (used) was between $70 and $90 with shipping depending on the condition.
Summary: I love this phone! I switched over to the Triumph from a BlackBerry Curve and I love it. It did take a while to adjust to the touch screen, but the interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate. The screen resolution is great and the customization options for this phone are endless. I love the fact that I feel I've got a high-end phone on a pre-paid carrier.
Definite buy, if you are willing to pay this one time, high price.

Summary: Had brought the phone mostly for work, but has grown to love other aspect of the phone. Feature such as the 5mp camera with flash, is really keeping me busy and the broad range of games available are also great. The battery life however is a problem, but downloading a few apps will help keep track and increase battery life for sure. For a no-contract phone, this is a definite win the the category. The price is a problem though, but that is why you have ebay.
BIg screen, a couple minor issues, good price, good value. Pleased!

Summary: By golly, I think I have finally gotten the cell phone that makes me happy. My choices were limited by being a Virgin customer, of course. I had the Optimus V and after using it for a year, decided I needed either a bigger screen or a slide-out keyboard. I tested an Optimus slider, but the keys seemed to be quite hard to pres - I could imagine getting pains in my thumb joints after a while! The Triumph seemed a bit heavy, but the bigger screen was a huge selling point.
Good as it gets in the pre-paid, no contract market

Summary: The Triumph is just about the best option one has in the pre-paid smart phone market, as one of the few high-end models available. This being pre-paid, of course the technology behind the phone is about 2 to 3 years old now, a solid 1Ghz single core processor, and 512mb of RAM, while current contract phones have moved on to dual core processors and 1gb of RAM. To get an idea, you could say that the Triumph is about on par with a iPhone 3gs.
Pros: + Powerful and fast., + Quality screen/video., + Quality speakers/audio., + Forward and front facing cameras.
Cons: - Camcorder lacks tremendously., - GPS can flake out., - Android 2.2 has occasional hiccups and app crashing.
Great phone, excellent features, nice size screen; 5 Stars!!!!

Summary: Went from an LG Optimus to this phone because I wanted a bigger screen and more internal memory. I love this phone and am so happy I got it. I used to have an iPhone as a company phone and this phone does everything the iPhone did at half the price. The only problem I have had so far is that once in a while the keys kinda freeze up, I'm not sure if it's the keys or the screen protector I put on the phone.
Summary: I recently purchased this for christmas,and have to admit it was my first android,so the learning curve is heavy laden...if it is your first droid.Overall it has done everything an iphone would do,play videos,mp3s,upload to you tube,5mp camera,hd video camera(tho I havent used it yet),and has a face front camera for video chat.Its basically your pc compacted into a phone,and after you visit the app store you will find there isnt anything you cant do,i bought a 16gb micro...
Summary: Got mine during the holiday discounts for this model. Wound up getting one for the wife too(dumped older iphone too much$$ for new plus no more contracts). I had an older driod so everything was easy to transition including contacts. Nice big screen battery will drain like most of these larger droids...I keep a charger ready in the car and usb chord at the office and I've been fine.
Summary: The motorola triumph is a pretty good phone which seems to work best via Wifi, if browsing the web, rather than on the Virgin mobile network. One thing is that the battery life is not all that great and the location of the capture button, when in camera mode, could be better.
