First Impressions with the Super Slice

by Camelot One    Sep 20, 2007, 12:41 AM

I've only had it a day, so I'll wait to post an actual review. But some info for those interested:

1. It uses a mini-USB plug for the charger. It's located on the right side of the phone. I was able to locate a windows XP driver for the phone, but thus far haven't been able to get anything to actually see it, other than windows itself.

2. The screen is aweful. My old Kyocera Slider (which is probably 5 years old now) looks a lot better.

3. The ringer/speaker is located on the back side. Seems like a decent spot, until you set the phone down. Because the back of the phone is so flat, the speaker volume is muted to roughly 25%.

4. The Contacts list is annoying, you can only view 3 names at a time.

5. Call quality is surprisingly good for a cheap phone.

6. While it is a "Bluetooth Enabled" phone, it only supports headset and handsfree profile. It does not support data sync, which I find just plain stupid.

All in all, I think it's probably worth the $60 price tag, if for no other reason than it is Virgin Mobile's only bluetooth phone. But it isn't going to impress anyone who's used, owned, or even seen a modern day cell phone.
