Review: Motorola Triumph
The Triumph is running a stock version of Android 2.2.2. It's a total bummer that it doesn't have Gingerbread on board, but we can be thankful that the Triumph isn't sullied with Motoblur. In fact, having access to a completely stock version of Android could be highly appealing to some.
This version of Android provides five home screen panels for user customization. Thankfully, Virgin and Motorola were sparing in their decoration of the home panels, which have been left mostly blank out of the box. Shortcuts to the phone, main menu, and browser are accessible from all five home screen panels. The notification shade is completely bare bones, and doesn't have any useful shortcuts, such as controls for the wireless radios.
The main menu is the stock Froyo menu grid. It can't be customized or rearranged, which means you're stuck scrolling through a massive list of apps placed in alphabetical order. The fastest way to get at apps you use regularly will be to create home panel shortcuts for them.
The settings menu is unaltered Android 2.2.2.
As for performance, the Triumph has a 1GHz S2 Qualcomm processor on board, and it is speedy most of the time. I noticed some apps were slow to open, but panning across the home screens was quick, and most tasks didn't tax the processor at all.
