for the Motorola Moto G (GSM, 1st gen.):
Perfectly adequate all-day phone
It's no miracle phone. I think mainly it is a combination of Motorola choosing to make a reasonable mid-range phone, which for some reason is an underserved market. The processor is faster than my old phone, but has some noticeable limitations if you have played with high-end phones. If works just fine for gmail, twitter, most web browsers, and a lot of other apps which normal people are likely to use. It has enough RAM to switch among common ...

for the Samsung Exhibit II 4G / Galaxy Exhibit 4G:
Beep! It's 1:00am, aren't you glad your battery is full?
Every night, this stupid phone beeps to tell me the battery is full, sometimes more than once. This "feature" cannot be disabled unless you also turn off message alerts (all "notifications" are the same volume control), or silence the phone entirely. I must be crazy, because I actually might want to wake up if I receive a call at night, but NOT just to have the phone inform me that, holy moly, it actually managed to charge its own ...

for the LG Optimus T:
Cheap, but has issues
Search for "emergency mode" and LG, and you will find many people with the same problem I have. They phone works fine for a little while (in my case, a week past the exchange period), and then it goes nuts and displays "emergency mode" and won't boot up. As for features, it is almost good but it must be the only Android phone with no auto brightness control. Even the cheapo Comet can do that. The Optimus ...

for the Huawei Comet:
Good hardware, bad Android OS
Google's Android is not a good system, and T-Mobile's hacks don't help any. You can't save email attachments. It includes no easy way to access or switch between running applications. It closes applications you want to leave running (no way to disable this "feature"), and automatically starts unnecessary programs which can't be removed. (eg, Telenav, which requires payment, starts automatically and can't be removed even though Google's GPS navigation is free.) It has no file browser. The ringtone and alarm settings won't find downloaded ...

for the Samsung Gravity T459 / Strike:
No custom message alerts
All of Samsung's included message alerts (the few that there are) are annoying, and you can't add your own. What a stupid limitation on a phone which is supposedly designed for messaging. Samsung is the only manufacturer which doesn't let you do this. Even the freebie Motorolas can use downloaded message alerts, but this fancy QWERTY-enhanced Samsung is too stupid to do it.

for the Samsung SGH-A127:
Horribly slow
It's OK just to make calls, but anything else nearly puts this thing six feet under. Clicking the camera button results in nothing happening for 5-10 seconds, depending on what mood the phone is in. The web browser takes about that long just to get connected. The buttons are also somewhat unpleasant to press. The keypad is thin rubber, and you have to click right on the tiny button on the circuit board underneath. The entire "key" ...

for the Sony Ericsson J220:
Primitive, but not bad
The j220a is one of the last of an older Sonyericsson platform. No MP3 ringers (not even small files). No XHTML WAP, which means most of the current mobile versions of websites will not work. The MIDI player isn't even very good. However, it actually has a few good features that were not always phone on older, bottom-rung prepaid phones: Voice volume is loud enough, even for slightly noisy situations. The menu is pleasant-looking and easy to use. The display ...

Sep 21, 2007, 6:27 PM
for the Motorola C261 / C257:
Internet just plain doesn't work
Motorola claims my phone is defective, but after digging around it turns out a lot of people have that problem. Correct settings and internet plan, but the phone still says the network is down, both Tracfone versions and unbranded phones on another network.

Aug 15, 2007, 12:34 PM
for the Nokia 5300:
Needs major refinement
Good: Speakerphone/ringer sound quality (loud, clear, and full frequency range). Display resolution and quality (240 x 320 TFT). Lots of settings options, common to Nokia's series 40 menu. Bad: Video player volume control doesn't change the volume much. It's always too loud. The MP3 player's playlist feature still plays all of your songs, the only thing a playlist does is play selected tracks in order, then it starts playing all of your other songs, ringers, etc. The Media control buttons (play, skip, volume) on the ...

Jul 29, 2007, 8:45 PM
for the Sony Ericsson W200:
The quality doesn't match the price.
This phone is full of cool features, but has some problems. The built-in email client is great, except it just randomly deleted both of my email accounts. Now I have to set those up again, which is a pain. The ringer/speakerphone is lower quality than preceding models like the j300a and k300i, both of which were cheaper. It can't play as loud and doesn't sound as good. Not only is it disappointing for the price, but somehow it ...
