Conclusion: The ideas behind the Highnote are better than their actual execution; it seems almost every feature the phone packs in could have been just a little better thought out. For instance, the time between activating the music player and actually getting to hear any music is just plain inexplicable.
Pros: Fast web access; customizable menus; POP3/IMAP email; good speakerphone; 2MP camera
Cons: Takes to long to get to music; unintuitive controls; quirky interface; small keys
Conclusion: We like the Highnote, but don’t see it doing particularly well. At $100 it’s well worth your extra $30 to move up to the Instinct , and with the $50 Rant offering basically the same features with a QWERTY keyboard we see the Highnote kind of sitting in limbo.
Pros: Good all around multimedia phone, Solid construction and good size, Built in speakers performed well
Cons: Wheel navigation can be clumsy, A bit too expensive for what it is
