Summary: The T-mobile Tap was the first phone I ever got from T-mobile, and right before the first year of my contract was up, the tap functionality started dwindling. Then out of nowhere, the tap function just stopped. It came back briefly, but only intermittently. Good thing this phone was still under warranty, so I got a T-mobile Comet as a replacement (still a tap-based phone with more stream-lined features, but I still don't trust it).
Excerpt: I'm on my 3rd or 4th one! They keep LOCKING UP, the touch screen feature goes away, and since there is no on-board keyboard, I thus I lose the ability to navigate, delete pick, videos, dial numbers, free up memory! The engineers who designed this did not think ahead! I can't type in a reset password if the touch screen is no longer working. AVOID the tap! It will give out on you and leave you in a bind.
Cons: LOCKS UP, you lose tap screen capability. You're dead in the water., DON"T BUY IT!
Excerpt: I got this phone when it 1st came out. wanted 2 try out touch screen. I've should've went with samsung behold! EVERYTHING SLOW ON THIS TAP! response time is ridiculous. worst part of it was texting! nice part, u can hooked up 2 any computers with usb drive 4 texting & pc asst. moving files or pics from ur phone 2 computer hard drive. I'm pretty sure, u can do same with samsung behold, also! Now? I'm stuck with this dumbass phone til, I can afford samsung behold.
Pros: if, u like 2 try touch screen? try samsung behold, iphone.
Excerpt: I had this P.O.S. for about a week, it is very slow, the touch screen sucks and this phone has the worst txt reaction time for those of you who enjoy txting fast. The phone might have done better if it had a built in stylus, i had to use a pen on the rediculously designed keyboard, the internet was sluggish and the battery life was horrible, the only good things about this phone was the Nimbuzz app and the loudness of the speaker.
Pros: Loud speaker and Nimbuzz
Cons: Horrible screen quality and touch screen reaction and also the fact that this is Huaweis first GSM phone. Huawei is the manufacturer.
Excerpt: I picked up this phone and was sick of it after 3 weeks. The touch screen has a slow reaction time, the apps load slow when selected from the menu, and the call directory functions are incredibly hard to select. Overall, a crappy phone. Pony up and spend some cash. Free phones are sometimes worth it, but in this case this one is not.
Excerpt: I purchased a new Tap shortly before Christmas from a T-Mobile "indepent retailer". That was my first mistake. Note to T-Mobile customers - deal with T-Mobile DIRECTLY - the independent retailer could care less how long you've been a customer, and most of them don't follow the same rules as T-Mobile - there's no service after the sale. Not really sure why they exist. But enough about that - we're here to review this terrible little phone.
Cons: Poor signal strength, poor connectivity, poor sound quality, poor battery life.
Summary: I got this phone as a present! What a surprise, couldnt tap very well, and had a slow connection to the web.It automatically cut off especially when making a phone call, volume was low and when i brought a 16gig memory card and used it, it didnt read my card right it told me i had a 8gb card!! After a while it stopped tapping. In my opinion not good.
Summary: This phone is awful if you love texting. It's T-mobile's entry level touch screen phone, so of course it's not going to be the most amazing phone ever...it's greatly priced and it's quite stylish - but don't let its looks fool you! Touching the buttons on the screen can take 5 seconds or more to respond a lot of the times (you'd expect for it to instantly react when you press a button don't you?
Summary: I remember when this phone first came out i was so excited to receive it. Once I got it and started using it, the more and more I hated it over time. This thing was SLOW, even typing slowly it would not handle it, I mean you have to type not much more than 10 wpm for the phone to respond. Another problem is the screen responsiveness was horrible, like it was not calibrated sometimes. I always found myself pressing the wrong thing.
Summary: After a couple of weeks this phone slows down. I'm not sure why, but it does. It lags in texting, takes a while to go to the next screen.. etc. The collaboration setting doesn't even work. Even if you used the tiniest point to collaborate you will still end up getting something else. The picture quality is horrible. Dusts easily goes under the screen. The weird thing was then I tried to charge it one day and it didn't charge correctly...
