for the BlackBerry Z30:
Amazing phone being killed by Verizon
The Blackberry Z30 is an amazing phone, Excellent battery life with a HD 5 inch screen. One of the most efficient virtual keyboards right out of the box. The phone functions are easy and practical once you spend a little time to learn it. I woud say couple of days and you will be efficient and in a week comfortble with the OS. The browser is AMAZINGLY fast.... dont take my word for it, ...

for the HTC One max (CDMA):
Large Phone for someone who wants just that
This is a very large phone. Larger than the Note 3. But it is made for people who like large phones. Don't buy this model and complain that it is too Large. If size is an issue go for its sibling, the HTC One. If you are okay with the size then this a phone that will amaze you, hook you and make you ask why isn't it one of the highest rated phones available. ...

for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 (GSM):
Plastic feel, terrible battery life and overrated
I got the S4, thinking it would be an awesome improvement over all the other Samsung Galaxy phones. I was very disappointed and here's why: First for a 1080 Screen I found myself constantly fidgeting with the brightness control, and always wondering why I have to readjust the screen. Second I don't care what anyone writes, the battery life on this and my Note are terrible. Piss poor terrible. Come on, I run out ...

May 26, 2013, 2:30 AM
for the BlackBerry Z10 (GSM):
Excellent software, hardware is good.
I got the S4, and within a day I was bored with the cheap quality and extremely poor battery life. Decided this wasn't the phone for me. Got the Z10 instead. By the way the sales staff at the store were looking at me because I was getting rid of the in phone for a what they believe is a not so cool phone. Problem is they have no clue what the new ...

May 19, 2011, 9:17 AM
for the Samsung Droid Charge:
Not impressd
I bought the phone because of the Super-Amoled screen and the fact that it works on Verizon's LTE network. Sadly, those two factors were not enough. After a week, I couldn't wait to return this dud. Pros Super Amoled Screen 4G Cons Construction is of cheap-cheap plastic Buttons on the phone were at time not responsive Buttons were also cheap which makes me question whether it would last a year. So much bloatware on the phone that the phone is laggy at times and slow to ...

May 3, 2011, 9:19 PM
for the Apple iPhone 4 (CDMA):
Simply put...solid
Awesome hardware and software integration. Hardware, by far the best looking and rock solid build. IOs is simple and responsive. Screen is second to none in clarity and sharpness. Virtual keyboard is super accurate and responsive. Negatives: Have to shut down each app at a time. Need to be able to customize the phone more. Why I didn't deduct any phones. The phone lacks flash player and is not flexible as far as customizing certain aspects of the phone. ...

Apr 17, 2011, 10:46 AM
for the HTC ThunderBolt:
Can't knock it until you understand it.
Most of the negative reviews are complaints about the battery and the size. It is exactly like someone buying a Cadillac escalade or a range rover and then complaining about the gas mileage. The thunderbolt is a large device with a very fast processor that requires a lot of its battery, and if you know how to deal with it, the battery delivers. Also, if you are not into larger phones then you will not care for the ...

for the HTC EVO 4G:
EVOlution of phone.
This is a fantastic phone. I bought it on 6/4 and have been liking better and better by the day. Here's the scoop, if you love a large screen, and enjoy Android, or are willing to learn Android, then this phone is second to none. Here's why. I have had, and still have the Apple 2g, 3g, 3gs, and the IPad,etc, etc. But, I love the combination, of a killer high resolution screen, ...

May 9, 2010, 9:16 PM
for the HTC Droid Incredible:
Incredible HTC Incredible
The combination of HTC, Google Android and Verizon's service has produced one of the most advanced computers on the market, which also happens to be a mobile phone. The build of the incredible is excellent, the quality of the camera is very good and the design is very sleek. I really liked the Motorola Droid, but wasn't very pleased with the keyboard and the antenna. Although the incredible does not have a keyboard, this is the first touch ...

Mar 28, 2010, 11:50 AM
for the HTC Touch Pro2 (GSM) / Tilt 2:
Tilt 2 for ATT Great device
The tilt 2 for ATT is a great device for many reasons. First, if you enjoyed the Tilt 1, you will love the Tilt 2. Second, the size, setup of the keyboard and all design additions and features are exceptional. The device works very well, and the screen quality is really excellent. The only reason I gave the device a 4.5 is because, although I like win mo, I still don't think I am quite sold on the HTC UI. ...

Nov 28, 2009, 12:14 AM
for the BlackBerry Storm2 9550:
Excellent device and improvements
This device does is leaps and bounds better than the Storm 1. The hardware is solid, the software 5.0 is excellent, and is again an absolute dream over Storm 1. Finally the keyboard and new touchscreen keyboard is a vast improvement. However, i would expect better software when typing. Now, you cannot say it's the unit, because the they have resolved the keyboard issues, but I think the software and sure type/full keyboard can be ...

Nov 17, 2009, 1:24 AM
for the BlackBerry Bold 9700:
Excellent device
This is a fantastic device and unless you are and appreciate Blackberries you will not appreciate or understand the upgrades. First off, the 9700 and the rest of the high end berries have gone to high resolution screens. I believe this one is 480 x 320. For the size, it is one of the best. With respect to the trackball being replaced with track pad, I would say it is a great advancement, even though it ...

Aug 31, 2009, 1:05 AM
for the BlackBerry Storm 9530:
Be Objective
Here's why I gave it a very high score. After owning and still using the iphone, and many many other touch screen PDAs, there are only manufacturers that have the ability and the technology to make them unique Blackberry, and Apple. I am not going to compare the Storm to the iphone because it has some very unique attributes. When it comes to emails, Blackberry stands alone. Although multimedia is great, but needs improvement. Emails ...

for the Palm Treo Pro (GSM):
Finally!
Now, if Palm had put the same effort into the prior models as they did with the 850 or Treo Pro, they would still be leading the PDA market. Having said that, here's my assessment of this unit: In sum, this is an excellent unit. Form factor is sleek and sexy and works great in your hand. Even though the unit has a high black metallic finish, the unit stays put in your hand. Does not ...

Jul 19, 2008, 5:27 PM
for the Apple iPhone 3G:
Product years ahead of the game....
I don't know who may be subsidizing some of these people who are complaining, but I am willing to bet that most of them are non Apple/AT&T customers. All I can say is that I personally carry a Treo 800w, BB 8330 and an HTC Kaiser (not the AT&T, but the unbranded, HTC version). The 3G iphone is a fantastic product without doubt. If you are concerned about battery life, you have the option of shutting off the ...

Jul 17, 2008, 11:46 AM
for the Palm Treo 800w:
You either like Treos or you dont.
I have had, and have blackberrys treos qs and the lot. This is by far one of the best windows mobile systems on the market. The size is perfect for one handed operation, the software is fast and the possibilities vast. The keys are well placed to support one handed or two handed use. The wifi and the 3g Rev A makes the 800w one of the fastest mobile devices on the market. No kidding. Furthermore, ...

Mar 25, 2008, 10:54 PM
for the Samsung SCH-i760:
Great PDA
This is an excellent PDA. The build quality is awesome. The phone button design is okay. But the rest of the phone, screen and other functions are excellent. The other excellent functionality this phone has is that it has number keys on the outside. Which is also huge positive factor. Overall, if you like to have a pda (not a smartphone), would like it to have number keys, and great keyboard then this is the ...

Dec 16, 2007, 1:17 PM
for the BlackBerry Pearl 8130:
Excellent product
Well well well. Finally a BB Product that offers live TV from Sprint. Now all my needs are met. I need to be connected to the markets 24/7 wanted a BB badly but couldn't because of its multimedia limitations until Sprint released the 8130. Excellent form, has live Sprint TV and more so I can be in touch get live news and updates, excellent camera and e-mail capabilities. Then only negative is the battery drains quickly. ...

Dec 7, 2007, 11:48 PM
for the Palm Centro 690 (CDMA):
Double impressed
Well, my wife saw the add for the Centro and for the first time ever wanted it because she wanted a keyboard for texting. I purchased the Centro for her from Sprint and set it up for her. The more I worked with the unit, the more impressed I became about it's size, it's performance, it's camera, and all its features. Although the camera is a 1.3 megapixel, it is a much better quality camera than ...

Dec 7, 2007, 11:38 PM
for the Palm Treo 755p:
Excellent product
Have had the 755 for three weeks now and am enjoying it more and more by the day. First off, I am starting to fall in love with the uncluttered and organized screen of the Palm OS again. Rim is great and WM6 is wonderful too, but sometimes you want the clear organization of a Palm OS. (If only they came up with a newer version). The 755's new body without an an antenna and ...

Nov 1, 2007, 12:55 AM
for the Motorola Q Global / Q9h:
Excellent product
Here's my take on this phone. I had the European Q9h for approximately 3 months, and just got the US Q9h. Aesthetics aside, which I think is great, thin, good looking, great keys, the functionality of the q9h, with the ability to edit documents, combined with the 3G technology is a very powerful work horse. The quality of the Q9 is also great. Whether the Q9h, or the Q9m (which I also own), they are really built ...

Mar 15, 2007, 11:52 PM
for the Samsung BlackJack SGH-i607:
Great design, Great Features.
I was tired of having large PDAs, and wanted something a little slimmer, and not as wide as the Q or E62. I bought this phone with skepticism, thinking I would not like it: a, because it was a Samsung, and b, because of the win mo operating system. I have now had this phone for close to three weeks, and am finding it harder and harder to decide whether to return it. Why? Pros: Excellent design/size Full QWERTY keyboard 3G ...

Dec 2, 2006, 10:21 AM
for the Palm Treo 750:
Excellent Phone/Pda
If you are a Treo fan, you will not need convincing. Having said that, I like and have liked the Treos from their initial release, but I am especially pleased with the Treo 750. First off, it's a quad band phone with all three high speed data networks. In other words,it will work seamlessly well with Cingular, T-Mobile or our Canadian cousin's networks up North. The Windows operating system has its flaws as does anything else. But ...

Jun 3, 2006, 4:10 PM
for the Nokia 6126 / 6131 / 6133:
Motorola should learn from Nokia
This is a fabulous phone with all the bells and whistles. The greatest thing about this phone is that it is quad band, and holds a signal like its life depends on it. We were in a structure. I was using my phone and my friend his Moto V3. Once we went further into the structure the Moto lost the signal, it went dead. The Nokia 6131 not only held the signal, but I was ...

May 3, 2006, 10:34 PM
for the Motorola SLVR L7:
Great Phone- Grows on you with each day
Well, let me tell you when I first got this phone, I was in love with its form factor. Sleek, thin, sexy. Then after a couple of days, I was upset with the Motorola software (why I gave it a 4.5 instead of 5.0) Keep in mind there is no perfect phone. However, then I put this phone in perspective it is a phone, sounds pretty good with headset and i tunes. Photographs are fair to ...

Apr 16, 2006, 12:59 PM
for the Palm Treo 700w / 700wx:
Great product
Well let me start by telling you that I actually had to get service with Verizon because of the treo 700w and also maintain my GSM phone with Cingular/ATT/Cingular/ATT what ever they change it too. First off, let me tell you whatever treo you have these last generation of treos 700w/650 all have the best built quality that I have seen. From the material used to the screen and all the buttons, everything is put together well ...

Dec 16, 2005, 5:33 PM
for the Motorola V323 / V325 / V323i / V325i:
Great Phone! Great Quality!
This is an excellent phone with great call, and phone quality. The inside screen is vibrant and bright, and the keys are well placed illuminated. The outside finish (black finish with brushed stainless steel is excellent both to hold and for the quality and looks of the phone. The camera (VGA) quality is exceptional and is better than most 1.3 mega pixel cameras.... ie. the V710. Speaker phone is clear and most importantly the call quality ...

Sep 26, 2005, 9:30 PM
for the Nokia 6101 / 6102:
Nokia 6101 Getting it right...Again!
This is a great little phone. The screen, camera and phone are great. The camera is better than most of the 1.3 mega pixel cameras, and the phone is NOKIA great. It holds a signal and keeps on holding. Most places I used to have patchy coverage, now I seem to have coverage. I called my carrier to ask if they had a new cell site up in the area. They said they did not. The ...

Sep 3, 2005, 1:30 PM
for the Nokia 8801 / 8800:
Stainless Steel Wonder
Bought the 8800 rather than the 8801. The difference is that the 8800 operates on 900/1800/1900 mhz, whereas the 8801 operates on the 850/1800/1900 mhz bands. This is a great little phone in the true Nokia Tradition. What I mean is if you are buying a candy bar mobile/cell phone, there is no one that knows how to build them better. This phone is built in stainless steel, crystal display and has 262k color/colour display. The slide on ...

Jul 22, 2005, 1:49 PM
for the Motorola E815 / E816 Hollywood:
Very good phone. Almost There!
This is an overall great phone. The picture quality, and all the phone's features have vastly improved over the 710. I actually got the lg 8100 first. But found it to be a disappointment compared to other LG models. Whereas when I compared the LG with the Motorola with the exception of the phonebook's options I found this phone in both quality of the phone and features are much better to all the broadband phone's on ...

Jun 25, 2005, 11:38 AM
for the Audiovox PPC-6600 / PPC-6601 / XV6600 (HTC Harrier):
BLOWS AWAY THE COMPETITION
I read the reviews here, and was disappointed with the Treo 650. I decided to try this out. Got the PDA last week and cannot tell you how pleased I am with my decision. If you are with Verizon, and have subscribed to unlimited data, you can pretty much have MSNBC on the whole day. Download at DSL plus speed. More important, there are less limitations using this PDA because of the Windows operating system versus using a Palm operating ...

Jun 1, 2005, 12:22 AM
for the Nokia 6255i / 6256i:
Finally a clamshell CDMA that's a Nokia!
I am using this phone on Verizon's network. This is an excellent Nokia clam shell phone with an excellent internal and exterior screen, even if its 65k. The speakerphone feature is great. It permits use, open or close. Bluetooth capability that hasn't been crippled because a carrier want to sell their merchandise. The phone has all the Nokia features that were available on the earliest Nokia phones. Your accessories for all your previous Nokia phones will work on this ...

Jun 1, 2005, 12:12 AM
for the Nokia 9300 / 9300i:
Nokia 9300 an absolute must
I gave this phone a 5.0 because it is exactly what a business man needs. A fully functional phone and pda, without a camera. Yep you read it correctly. A phone with all the bells and whistles, that does not have a camera. Most corporations and government buildings do not permit the use of camera phones. The phone's software is great, and very easy to use. Of course there is always room for improvement, but what phone or ...

May 15, 2005, 9:40 AM
for the Motorola V65p:
V65p very good business phones
I just leased a car that came with a v60s. The car kit and software were integrated so that no other phone would work with the set up. Well, I thought I would be innovative and got a v65p with color screen and all, and change the battery and battery door to the slim battery and door and try the phone in my new car. Bingo! It works like a charm. Then I thought, ...

Mar 2, 2005, 9:36 AM
for the Samsung SCH-A890:
Samsung sch a890
Bought this phone because of the v-cast and prior experience with the quality of samsung phones. Paid full retail for the phone, which is no small feat. So I expected to get my money's worth, right? Wrong! Pros: The phone is lightweight and a great size compared to the LG vx 8000. The color screen is vibrant and I like the construction of the phone. That's why I bought the phone. Cons: The battery life is extremely ...

Feb 4, 2005, 4:47 PM
for the Audiovox CDM-8940:
Great V cast , poor software and hardware
Bought the phone first day it was out. Paid full retail for the phone. Not cheap. So you would expect a little more than average. However, this phone was at best...average. I bought the phone because it was supposed to be a reasonable size, and have a speaker phone. First the speaker phone was a great disappointment. Second, you can hardly hear in or out of the darn thing, so you are better off without ...
