Review: Motorola Triumph
Motorola and Virgin Mobile were restrained when it came time to load apps onto the Triumph. There's the usual assortment of Virgin apps, such as account tools, Virgin Mobile Live, and the airG app. Help yourself to whatever you want from the Android Market.
Bluetooth worked without issue on the Triumph. Pairing with mono and stereo headsets, as well as PCs and other phones, was a snap. Sound quality of voice calls through mono headsets was pretty bad. Music sounded acceptable through stereo Bluetooth speakers, but I'd shy away from this feature if you have a good cable handy.
The Triumph offers the same lock screen clock that most Android phones do. When initially woken from sleep, it shows the time in a larger, digital read out. The time can be gleaned with but a glance. There is also a full-featured clock application within for all your timing, alarming, and stopwatching needs.
The Motorola Triumph includes Google Maps and Navigation. There are no other navigation apps on board. It also comes with Google Places, Poynt, and Where for your local searching needs. I like the way Places integrates with Google Maps for finding a nearby restaurant, and then generating driving directions to it. The GPS performance was spot on in terms of pinpointing my location. Inconsistent and slow network performance, however, really got in the way of Google Maps. It was often way behind because the phone couldn't render maps fast enough.
