pointless and outdated

by azndano    May 21, 2004, 11:11 PM

Okay. This phone is soooo stupid in my opinion. It's a waste of a phone. It's features are outdated and are lower than the older 5350. Many people say that the 5350 had problems, but my friend's family has 3 or 4 of them (Sprint had a buy one get one free sale of them a while ago). They ALL work seamlessly, but then are just a little bulky. Comparing the older 5350 with this new VI5225, the 5350 is much better in almost all areas. Let's start with the screen. While the 5225 has a slightly larger screen, it's still STN and had 4,000 colors. The 5350 had a smaller screen, but had 65,000 colors. Believe me, the amount of colors matter alot. I have the Toshiba VM4050 and it has so many colors (262,000 to be exact), and that makes the screen soooo amazing and vivid. Battery life on the 5225 is only 2.5 hours of talk time, where as the 5350 has 3 hours of talk time! Okay, the new 5225 has 16 chord ringtones....very weak in the modern life of cell phones. The old 5350 already had the 40 chords. To me, the new 5225 is crap. I guess LG has to start somewhere @ Sprint, but at least it could have started where it left off; not start off completely over again. This phone has just a few things that it can overcome the 5350 with: SMS text messaging, internal attenna, and a newer updated Openwave browser. Not anything special to me. I just hope that Sprint and Samsung will come together and work on the A640. I really like the design of that supposable first CDMA phone with an internal antenna. This 5225 has ruined it... I don't get it; LG has made nice phones for Verizon, but what's up with Sprint LG phones. They are kinda ugly and suck, but that's my opinion.
