Dec 28, 2013, 11:18 PM
for the Motorola Moto X (GSM, 1st gen.):
Pleasantly Suprised
I was skeptical about this phone, took the $150,00 deal last week, plus had some odd ball $220 credit do to some health insurane bonus that was offered for Moto/Google products and some other unrelated companies that I had little use. And 10% Corp discount. Originally wanted the DE, but the $150 wasn't included, so went with the 16gb T-Mobile/Unlocked version and was able to use Moto Maker. (and 1 year interest free to pay it ...

for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (GSM):
N5 Vs. N3
I was going to get the N5, but decided I wanted a larger phone. I bought the Note 3 strait out from TMO. Expensive but sold some other devices I had, plus has a small credit from TMO to help. I am getting it unlocked to use on AT&T and will use my current unlocked SGS4 M919 back on my TMO line. I wanted an unlocked bootloader in case I want to change roms. ...

for the LG Nexus 4:
Impressed
Pro's, Design, fits in pocket well, screen is fantastic without over saturation. Nor is it bland like some other LCD's. Call Quality is good, excellent hspa+ with TMO. Cons. But knew it going in, no SD card. I know this is a contraversal argument. Having an SD card slot is more then just about having storage, its about not being wipped out everytime you add a new rom or reset the phone. External storage ...

Dec 2, 2012, 11:20 PM
for the Samsung Galaxy Note II (GSM):
SGH I-317
I recently, purchased this phone after my SGS III was lost during Sandy, I had private insurance and took the check and placed it towards the Note II. Very impressed, while large, I found it quite easy to carry in my scrub pockets while at work, as well as jacket/coat while out. Screen is bright, typical Galaxy S saturation, which one can hate or love, I'm the former. Phone is fast in use, never bothered running tests, its ...

Mar 5, 2011, 7:41 PM
for the HTC Inspire 4G:
So far, so good
After looking at both the Atrix and Inspire, I found this phone to suit my needs. It was a hard choice. Screen, wonderful, very snappy. Getting good results on speed tests. Feel, fit an finish. What's not so good. Well the battery compartment, but that's known and known when I purchased the product. No 2100, but don't plan on traveling much, and can just take my N! if needed. Sense seems to like to merge all contacts from ...

Jul 26, 2010, 5:57 PM
for the Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S):
Captivate
I'm surprised, AT&T did it right. Very easy to root and set up nice and clean. Screen is fantastic, bright and sharp, readable outside. speed is fast OK, somewhat locked down, and no mac support. Not hard to do the former, just some reading support groups. Infact, one really doesn't need to do a thing if they don't want.

Apr 6, 2010, 10:48 PM
for the HTC Nexus One:
Nice, real nice.
Excellent voice, excellent connections speeds on AT&T's network. Nice included apps. Screen is fantastic. Sometimes the screen stalls, honestly I think its more of a difference between an AMOLED screen and regular LCD. But more I use it and learn its feel, the better.

Aug 23, 2009, 2:19 AM
for the HTC myTouch 3G / Magic:
HTC Magic 32A Rogers Version (on AT&T)
I recently got this phone branded to Rogers which works fine with AT&T once unlocked and correct APN's are set. Found the screen to be bright and responsive to touch. Programs which I have previously purchased, were re-downloaded free and the Market even had them listed. KB and controls are great once you get accustomed to them. Battery seems superior to what came with the G1. Cons: Kb could be better.

Jun 21, 2009, 7:44 PM
for the Palm Pre (CDMA):
EH
Con's On CDMA, no data and talk Build is shody KB is sub par medicore SDK sometime this millennium Pro's Decent cap touch screen.

Mar 8, 2009, 12:23 PM
for the Samsung Propel A767:
Good at what its for.
AT&T recently replaced my teen aged daughters Quickfire with the Propel. She loves it. Good inexpensive texting phone that just works, and works fine. KB is very acceptable for the size, slide and build seems solid, holds a charge good. Voice clarity is good. Cons. Does seem awkward to me, but not really that bad.

Feb 24, 2009, 5:28 PM
for the BlackBerry Storm 9530:
Storm
Outside of a nice screen, I find this a very poor touch screen, I held of doing a review for several months to see if there would be a significant improvement. Nice: Screen, normal Blackberry Functions. Not so Nice, horrible touchscreen, nasty press click. Come on guys. Build seems so so.

Nov 26, 2008, 7:56 AM
for the HTC G1:
G1
Android: I have had my G1 for a few days now, it did take some getting used to, there are some things with Android which I don't care for, like try to install applications off the sd card, but those I feel will be fixed. Otherwise after a learning curve, very intuitive. Now the Phone: Pro's: Nice Bright and responsive screen. The phones CPU is fast and handles the OS and interface well. ...

Nov 11, 2008, 6:34 PM
for the PCD QuickFire:
Nice
Yesterday bought this phone for my teenaged daughter. 1. Nice screen. 2. Touchscreen was better then I expected. 3. Bright. 4. KB flips out nice. Don't Like. 1. Plastic feel. 2. Menu's slightly confusing.

Nov 6, 2008, 10:34 PM
for the BlackBerry Bold 9000:
Bold My First BlackBerry
This is my first Blackberry and I'm impressed: 1. Comes with everything except memory card. Which is nice and rare from AT&T. 2. Best keyboard I have ever seen on a phone. 3. Fast, very responsive using the device, the 3g is fast and stays connected. 4. Nice size, wonderful screen for a non touch screen phone. Bright. Feels good in the hand. OK. One Con. 1. A bit wider then I like. But knew it going in.

Aug 14, 2008, 7:31 PM
for the Nokia E71 / E71x:
E71
The E71-2 is exactly what I was looking for, small and thin, decent battery life, enough of a screen to be useful. As always, Nokis does a fantastic job of auto setting everything from the AT&T sim. So far no issues with 3g. Screen is small but bright, keyboard is small but easy to use. A few tweaks with symbian's odd ball certificate issues and was able to install my favorite aps. Whats not so nice? Well ...

Jul 18, 2008, 4:35 PM
for the Sony Ericsson Z750:
Not to bad for Free.
Recently got this phone in grey as an insurance replacement for a Samsung Sync. I try to rate a phone in its class, not with phones outside of its class. Small and sleek, not thing but not bulky either. Screen is sharp, tones are decently loud and decent amount of freebies without having to resort to buying or transferring any. I was skeptical on the outside LCD, but its pretty nice. Fits the style of the ...

Dec 2, 2007, 11:18 PM
for the Nokia N95:
N95-3
This is by far the best phone I have had. Pro's: GPS works decent, pretty quick once you get it up and running. The First Phone I had to lower the volume by default. Locks on to my 3g signal better then any other phone, as well as excellent reception. Nokia loaded it up with ring-tones and some apps. Con's: OK its a little but not overtly bulky. But accepted this going into it. Yeah its expensive.

Oct 18, 2007, 5:00 PM
for the HTC Tilt 8925 / TyTN II:
Tilt-TyTN II-Kaiser
Pros: Screen is excellent for QVGA Phone is clear, no drops. Internet and media is fast. Keyboard is a slight improvement over the 8525 GPS works great. I love the tilt function. Feels solid, no shakes or wobbles. Cons: Well the AT&T software an no basic touchflo. I know the later can be done on one's own.

Sep 4, 2007, 5:51 PM
for the Samsung SGH-A717:
A727
The Good: 1. Nice and thin, weight is nice. 2. Inside screen is real nice. 3. HSDPA locks and stays. 4. Good call quality, played with it around the mall and no drops. 5. Shares chargers with families other Samsung phones. 6. Reasonably priced for what it is, does most of the what the Razr2 does and significantly less money. And I think its a better phone. 7. Alot of good features. The Bad (if ya can ...

Sep 4, 2007, 5:43 PM
for the Samsung SGH-A117:
A717
Nice size thin, nice phone, good connections, fast hsdpa, love the screen. Somewhat faster and nicer then my kids sync's. And we can share chargers. Price is fair. I guess some don't like the outside screen, or lack of it, or its small size whatever. As long as I can pick up the caller I.D. its all I really need.

Jul 30, 2007, 10:15 AM
for the Nokia E90:
Eh
Cons: No North American 3g/HSDPA, if LG, HTC and Samsung can manage this I'm sure the worlds leader in mobile communication can figure it out. Over priced, not worth $1200, or even 900, OK maybe $500. Size and format, looks like a brick, bulky and ungainly in the hand. Pros: Screens nice and sharp. Makes good phone calls.

Jul 28, 2007, 11:18 PM
for the HTC Mogul / XV6800 / PPC6800 / P4000:
Mogul
I have this phone for a few days, initially Sprint didn't set it up right, after talking with their tech people, all works fine. The EVDO is fast, especially coming from Edge. The PDA to me seems fast and snappy under WM6, much smoother then my 8525 which I sold. Seemed to sync better then other WM devices under Vista. The phone pad is better then other WM devices, the kb is slightly better then ...

Jun 16, 2007, 10:29 AM
for the Samsung SGH-A727:
SGH-727
Pro's: Nice thin design. Screen is sharp and bright. Seems very well built. Finally Cingular (AT&T) included Comcast in its email providers. Uses same chargers, cables and software as my kids Sync's. Con's: Manual and menu's are confusing, nowhere in the manual after looking through index's for like 15 mins could I find how to set ring tones, in the end figured it out. Compared to the Sync which is also a very good phone it is a tad expensive, except for video ...

May 19, 2007, 4:51 PM
for the Samsung SYNC SGH-A707:
Red Sync
Pro's 1. Nice Screen, bright and easy to read. 2. Easy to figure out menu's. 3. Nice big keys. 4. Speakerphone is loud. 5. Feels nice in the hand. Con's 1. No included data software and cable. 2. Charging/usb socket is proprietary, small and hard to insert power cable. For what this phone is and the cost, it's a great deal.

May 10, 2007, 7:21 PM
for the Nokia N75:
N75
Pro: Nice Screen Nice and Loud Smaller then I thought and very palmable. Responsive when you get used to the keypad. BT seems powerful, turn it on, every device in North America seems to want to pair. Phone signal seems strong. Cons:Keypad seems stiff. ...

Mar 12, 2007, 5:42 PM
for the Motorola RAZR V3xx:
V3xx
Pro's Very Bright screen. Very Resonsive and fast to commands. Nice and Loud. So far no dropped calls. Very Solid build. Even the Edge connection is fast. Would love to use it under hsdpa. Con's Menu could be better, but this could be do to using Nokia phone's. But it's not bad. I was planning on getting the Nokia N75 which my 10 year will be collecting social securiy before Cingular brings it out. Came accross a decent deal off contract at Compusa do to ...

Jan 18, 2007, 11:34 PM
for the Palm Treo 750:
Treo 750
Pro's Excellent Ergonomics, feels great in the hand, phone works great. No lag in the WM OS. For the most part one handed function. Con's I sorta miss the 8125's landscape feature. The keyboard, which funny is also a plus, being able to use it one handed is a plus, but compared to HTC's kb it isn't as good.

Jan 8, 2007, 9:08 PM
for the HTC TyTN / 8525 / JasJam (Hermes):
HTC 8125
Faster then my 8125, was able to get things up and running fast. The screen is nice and bright and very responsive to the touch screen. I miss the side button to control volume on the side, as well as to activate voice commands.

Sep 15, 2006, 2:58 PM
for the Motorola RAZR V3i / V3t / V3e / V3r:
Razr V3i
I needed a smaller and thinner phone, so I opted for v3i, I found it simple to use, worked easily with itunes on my mac. even the speaker with music seemed loud and clear. OK, I'd like it if itunes would be greater then 100 tracks, but thats an Apple issue.

May 9, 2006, 5:51 PM
for the HTC 8125 / 8100 / MDA (USA) / K-JAM / P4300 (Wizard):
Cingular 8125
Have the phone for abit over a day, like anything it's a learning curve, especially from using a regular phone (Nokia 6230, 6270) and a PalmOS device. Of course there is a learning curve. I used to hate Windows CE and it's later versions, Msft. has done a good job with this version of the OS. Pro's: Love the screen, both landscape and portrait. Everything connects (after a trip back to the Cingular store because couldn't ...

May 4, 2006, 6:59 PM
for the Nokia 6270:
6270
nice clear screen, lots of options, wanted a quad-band phone so didn't want G3 or other options. Easy to use. Off to Cingular tomorrow for them to add their medianet,internet,web stuff and for them to put the quick-dial to retrieve messages.
