Re: Ally Review?
Jun 1, 2010, 11:22 PM
in the LG Ally / Apex / Axis forum

I will have to say that after playing with it, I couldn't wait to put it down and go back to my Incredible. Yes, it's a nice phone but it's just not all that. Sure, it gets the job done but at the end of the day, you will ask yourself why did you settle for a Honda Accord when I could have had a Porsche.

Storm over the Tour
Aug 7, 2009, 2:05 PM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Just as I thought would happen. You can bash the Storm all you want but you will miss it once you try a smaller screen like the Tour. I had the Tour for a week and I just could not get past the smaller screen. The browsing experience is ten times better on the Storm I won't go into details but I think you will see a trend of Tour users who had the Storm, make their ...

Storm Review scores
Feb 25, 2009, 11:08 AM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Will we see a score of 4.0 in the next few weeks? If everyone goes to 109, just maybe it will get there. This is the build that Verizon should have released the Storm on. The naysayers are doing their best to get the score down but it's holding at 3.5! Not bad for a loser phone according to those so called experts at CNET and others. Have patience and you will be ...

The 109 beta is not bad at all. Probably the best one to date. The 109 hybrid was flaky for me....did not like it at all. Looks like we are going in the right direction.

Storm with .99 and Iphone 3G

Someone please explain to me with no sarcasim what the Iphone does better then the Storm. Please be grown up about this question. Feature for feature, being honest, which does more.

Feb 1, 2009, 11:45 PM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Yup, just like I predicted! As soon as the Storm gets a little loving, the naysayers can't help themselves with the low scores on their reviews that they come up with after 5 minutes with the phone. For all of the newbies to this type of forum, be careful when you read this stuff. There are times when people don't want phones to succeed. It's an interesting habit but I think that seeing this over the years, ...

Keep learning it, you will love it even more. There will be frustration, trust me on that. Phone is very good now and will be even better in the future. The review score has reached the 3.50 mark. I would expect the naysayers to start plastering it again to bring the numbers down. My long term forecast for this phone is that it will be rated higher then the Iphone.

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Ok, I have it downloaded and have been playing with it for a few hours. In summary, thihs is one sweet build! Everything is faster and the suretype keyboard is nice to use even more now...fonts are bigger. The browser is very fast...assuming you have it configured right. This build just may bring the reviews over 4. Thats only if the naysayers are pissed and come out in force and swamp the threads with ...

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

The naysayers are still trying to bring down the review numbers. As hard as they try, they fail. My Storm is doing well with .86. My browser is just sweet and I have tons of 3rd party apps on it. They work great. I feel like I am walking around with a mini laptop. Just watch folks, it will get even better then it is now. Patience.

HawkeyeOC said: well said :D Just some more fuel for thought. It is my beleif that if you continue to get swayed by other users opinions, you will most certainly always be switching phones. Howard Forums and Phonescoop are good for information but you have to take the reviews or feedback with a grain of salt. Can anyone name the last phone that came out that had great reviews? Every phone that I have ever seen released ...

My 30 take on the Storm
Jan 2, 2009, 4:26 PM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Okay, here's the deal. From the get go, I am pro Blackberry so take this for what it's worth. At first, it was a bit difficult or maybe I was just lazy, to warm up to the Storm. I have had all the software versions(current is .85). On New Years Eve, I was playing around with my cousins Pearl and Curve. I have had both and love both....especially the curve. Playing with the Curve ...

Dec 24, 2008, 11:20 AM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

I to, have had the pleasure to use both...currently with the Storm. The Iphone is a great phone depending where you live. Being serious, the network really does matter. You take away wifi on the Iphone and the discussion is dead. Wifi makes the Iphone because AT&T 3G is very sporadic! Before I go on, the first generaton Iphone( in my opinion works better, looks better and faster while tabbing along). Edge on the first phone was ...

Dec 23, 2008, 7:29 PM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

When I had the earlier versions of software...65 and .75, the application(music) would skip around quite a bit. I have since loaded .83 and the Youtubes videos sound great! No more skipping.

You said it my friend. At the end of the day, if you don't like the Storm, don't buy one. Everyone has different needs in what they see in a phone. Very similar to a car if you think about it. Can you imagine if we all liked Honda Accords? No one would buy the Camary and if you did, you would get pasted on why you shouldn't buy a camary. My suggestion ...

I have the .83 software installed. In summary....game over for Apple. Look, this phone is scooting now! What else do you want it to do? Cook dinner? Seriously, the new software is amazing! It just makes everything that was already good, better. Guess what? It will only get better from here. Why eary adapters quit so early is amazing to me. Look at the review scores....Apple fanboys are doing their best to keep the score down....is not ...

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

I have to ask.....didn't you know about all of this beforehand? What were you expecting? The phone is built solid as a rock! I won't even go any further because it's pretty obvious that you just don't like it and you want to justify your return to your curve. I know the routine in these forums to know when people are crying for help. It's cool. :D

Enjoy the storm screen, answer calls and e-mail reliably? Hmmmm. First things first, how old are you? I just have to ask this queston when I see a response like yours. To the point. Ok, you don't like the Storm...it sounds like you are proud to make that statment so you can justify your purchase of the Samsung. I could be wrong. From what I hear, the Samsung is good but not that good. ...

Re: NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK!!!
Dec 8, 2008, 11:29 AM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

From what I hear, the new update is coming real soon. It only gets better! There are many who are second guessing their quick review and are eating crow right now. In summary, I think that there are people in this forum who will write anything negative about the Storm regardless of how good it gets. A bit off topic to who reads this. I have had both generations of Iphones( 3 times with the 3 G version) ...

Storm and new .75 software
Dec 4, 2008, 11:15 AM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Well, it looks like the intitial haters of the Storm are starting to go away. The more educated Blackberry users are starting to add their thoughts and in my opinion, doing a very good job of countering the rediculous comparisons to other phones...especially the Iphone. Now that people are getting the new OS, things are looking up with fewer people complaining. The new OS makes the Storm a very good blackberry. Just wait till .76 comes( even ...

To the Blackberry lovers, this update is a god send. For all of the others who were expecting I don't know what, do us a favor, get another phone. All the whining is getting old! This phone is not a toy..please understand that. Blackberry could fix everything and there will still be whining in the background. Pretty soon you will see arguements that the color is crappy or that the phone is too heavy, ...

Like I said before...here we go again. Phone is out one week and reviews are scaring people. When will you people learn? Remember the Motorola 815, 710, razr? All of them got nailed by pro reviewers if you want to call them that. Who really cares? In summary, the phone is just fine. Yes, software patches will fix some things so be patient. What cracks me up is the Apple fanboys love this because it ...

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

I have both! The Storm is a much much better phone overall! I have the Storm typing down to where I can type just as fast using sure type as well as landscape. Lots of Iphone people just bashing this phone. Time will show this phone to be better. My point my friends is don't get discouraged by the negative reviews. Over at Howards, you have many who have gone back on their initial impressions ...

Reviews of the Storm
Nov 20, 2008, 1:01 PM
in the Article: Review: BlackBerry Storm forum

It's amazing how this happens everytime a new phone comes out! So the Storm doesn't do a few things perfect! I could care less about the petty reviews so far. Most users today could give a rats ass about many of the features. What is important is that it makes calls first( lets not forget this). Yeah, the Iphone has probably a nicer touch screen with icons that are basically useless. The Storm ...

in the Article: Verizon Launches BlackBerry Storm Teaser Page forum

You are an idiot! This phone will be able to make calls unlike the fruit phone on the other side. Stability will be better then the fruit phone. The only thing that the fruit phone has over this is probably the easy scrolling with the hard glass. Then again, the Storm may have the same type of feel, we just don't know yet. The Storm will for sure quiet down the Iphone hardcore users.

Second try with the 3G Iphone

in the AT&T forum

:cry: Ok, I have to say this. The 3G Iphone really is a piece of crap!!! I live in a full 3G area and the dropped calls are unbelievable! It got so bad, AT&T credited me my whole month with the new Iphone. Yeah, I know the fan boys are going to respond with "why don't you just turn off 3G?".....yeah right! The OS is slow as hell, the lag is still there. ...

in the Apple iPhone 3G forum

Yes, believe in the negative hype because it's real! You want to turn off 3G? Is this not a 3G phone? Whats the point of having it? Are people with Blackjacks and other 3G phones imagining full signal when their Iphone 3G has zero? Hmmm, I for one must have seen an illusion when my Nokia had full 3G bars and my Iphone had zero. The Internet is chalk full of the ...

First off, relax a bit, I am not against you! Yes, the Iphone has tons of problems that fanboys are overlooking. Ticks me off because the sooner Apple realizes the problems, they will or at least they should fix it. When that happens, I will buy it again. For now, I am looking to find a 2G to use(to be honest), I think the 2 G looks nicer, feels better and so on. The ...

As a phone, the Instinct wins! As a mini computer, the Iphone wins(when it works right). I have experience with both 2G and 3G and the 2G has my vote. #G Iphone is riddled with problems(it's ok fanboys). The Instinct is a nice phone but I think the network is a bit sketchy.

Just so you know, I was just at the AT&T Store to look at a Blackberry. At the counter was a couple who were discussing their Iphone problems with the CSR. CSR told them to drive 75 miles to the Apple Store to get it replaced. Long story short, as I was leaving, their car was parked next to mine. I politely asked them what was going on. Yup, same problem as me and many others. ...

Look, here's the deal. It's not the AT&T network!!! Once and for all, get that in your head! I have had a Nokia N95-3 and 4, blackjacket and a 3G razr. All of them full 3G where I live at all times full bars. The Iphone2 G has full bars on Edge almost always wherever I go. The 3G Iphone signal goes back and forth between a few bars to full, at times ...

It is too bad because if they in fact through out negative reviews which are consistant throughout the Internet, Iphone users will lose! It's as simple as that! Forget about MMS and voice dialing, the problem is in the reception and 3G....end of story. To me, that would send a red flag to Apple but as long as the fanboys keep protecting their product, Apple will never fix what is most important....fix the phone first. ...

I would suggest that you contact your fanboy friends and have them stop posting reviews of such positive nature just to bump the numbers up. You know as well as I do that Apple will not lift a finger if nobody complains. It just amazes me that when you look at this forum, HowardForums, the complaints are consistant and not made up just to cause trouble! We all bought our Iphones hoping for the best and ...

The 3G Iphone has a score lower then 2.50 right now. That is horrible!!!! Everyone that has a negative review is consistant with all of the other negative reviews. Come on Fanboys! Get with it and show Apple that you will not tolerate subpar equipment. Unlike the first Iphone, this one really is a dud! The sooner you realize it and stand up to Apple the sooner they will fix the problem. ...

I will not be so quick to blame the 3G coverage on AT&T. I had a Nokia 95-4 and it always held on to a 3G signel where I live. There is no question in my mind that its a defect, software glitch, whatever, on the Iphone itself. The Iphone 3G signel is just so bad that I can't believe that the fanboys still argue that there is no problem. Furthermore, the browser is always crashing!! Just wait ...

I think that this time around, Apple, AT&T, whoever you want to blame it on, this phone is cooked!!!! At the end of the day, when direct fullfillment starts sending out there orders, you will see a huge huge amound of these phones going back. This is a message that the carrier and Apple need to see. The ratings score is no exageration. It truly is a subpar phone right now.

Trolling? Are you kidding me? Are you such a fanboy that you can't see the consistant problems that this iphone has? Seriously, you need to get a grip and complain to Apple for ripping you on this one. Heck, I would take the 2G in a heartbeat over the new one now that I have played and owned both. Yes, Apple blew this one big time. The hype of this phone is slowly ...

There is no question that the Iphone has the coolest look and probably the funnest OS to play with. At the end of the day, you want to make calls....it's a phone, all else is secondary. As a phone, it fails in a huge way....so far. The browser is the best when working properly. But, lets face it, these reviews about the RF and 3G are no fluke! It's not whether Apple will fix ...
