Is the Lingo really as hot as they say it is?

by Chef Brd-Jason    Jan 4, 2008, 8:12 PM

Its beautifully designed, but they should have spent more time on it.
They made it to look like the env, even made it have some things the env needed improvement on, like;
They made the outside screen larger
created a more bautifull outside apperance..
but what they didnt think about..
is the external numeric pad, they crammed it and made it so small and the buttons are so weak, made for easy mistakes.
They made the speaker phone more crisp and clear then the env's, but did they do good enough for the battery life? i believe not. internal antennas are hot external are not, but in this case they seriously should have put an external antenna on it because its signals weak no matter where you are. The outside even wears and tears faster then any phone i've ever used, the buttons on its qwerty pad are so small and so close lots of mistakes are made on them if your a fast texter, takes alot of time to get used too but after a while instead of making alot of mistakes you start making just making a few mistakes.... every other word that is.
So do you still call it the hottest phone of crickets market? or will it lose to its competitor the motorolla rokr? Its a really small phone infact smaller and thinner then the env, and more styling, but it has its flaws, especially its flip flaw, has a problem with its software when once in a while you will flip it open or closed and it will freezer and turn off?! you say thats hot? how about not, and for a small price of $200 you get a phone with no mp3 player and a 1.3 mp camer with flash and mirror sounds like a deal doesnt it? well what you might not know is the camera is terrible in more shaded areas and its flash is a LED, as if things couldnt get anything worse... If someone sends you a ringtone through a text unlike any normal phone you cant save it as a ringer, you can only save it under your media, again not mp3 player just a media of clicks and claps and train noises. If you really still want it i suggest playing with a display phone or your friends one before you make the choise of wanting to buying, even though cricket is a noncontracted service you still have to suffer from the $200 and up phones. Choose whisely, your phone techie ,
