Audiovox or Samsung on VZW??


Jan 1, 2005, 12:16 PM
Just switched over to VZW from t-mobile due to my company. Went out right away and purchased a Samsung a650, what a disapointment compared to my moto v300 on t-mobile.

Bought thru Costco and the only other VZW phones they carry in my price range is the Samsung a670 or the Audiovox 8910.

My current a650 is going to get returned, about 18 hours stand-by and about 20 mins of talk and the battery needs recharging...ridiculous, had a similar problem with VZW several years ago....chewing up the phones battery.

Does a tri-mode phone (a650) chew up more battery than a fully digital phone a670 or 8910?

Whats the better choice here Audiovox or Samsung?

Don't blame the service provider for the phone's problem. You obviously have a bad phone so send it back to Costco.
As to which phone is better it's all personal choice and you should pick out one that has features that you want and go with it. Some phones do perform better but the diff is so small that only a test engineer would notice. Now I know some may say that they had some bad phones before but hey, there's bound to be a few bad phones in a few millions so don't judge the brand by 1 bad sample - I had a Toyota that broke down in less than a year but I still buy Toyota!

I would chose the a670 over cdm 8910. A tri mode phone ONLY uses more battery life when it is in analog mode.
