XV6800 Not Impressed!

Wow how unimpressed I am with this phone. I just got it and it is on the charger. But just from the initial feel, comparing it to the Tilt (which I have), this thing feels and looks like cheap junk. โ˜น๏ธ

I am sorry, the blue wrap around it, makes this thing look like a kid's toy.

The battery cover is as thin as a piece of paper.

The keyboard feels like bubble wrap about to pop.

I have a very difficult decision to make...do I stay with VZW just for the "free" in calling or do I dump them and switch to ATT, have an awesome phone, but pay for not able to use M2M minutes. ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ข

Great, well I had a fantastic day today my Jeep is in for repairs and it's not going to cost me near as much as I feared!

Are you going to return your 6800? If you just need verizon for the IN minutes why not just get a basic phone, why the need for two smart phones? ๐Ÿ™‚

The thing is that you should have expected it from HTC on that phone. It's been out on Sprint for months already so there should have been some general reviews out on that series already.

Ideally, you should have had some sort of educated expectations before you even bought the phone.

Just so I am understanding.. you are complaining that HTC made a bad phone compaired to another HTC phone...


Not sure what is wrong with you to make you think it feels and looks cheap..

Most people like some color in their phone, hence the blue being added on to make it more colorful.. focus groups liked it better that way.

Of course the battery cover is thin (I really have to wonder what kind of paper you use that is that thick).. that is the point in making a thin phone, you make parts thin. The manufacturer makes the parts as thin as they can while maintaining suffecient structural stability.. would it really have made you feel better if HTC has made the phone thicker, would have have made you feel that it wasnt cheap? if so th...

Uh,
I just joined Verizon yesterday and I don't think the 6800 is much of an upgrade from my 6700. It is thinner for sure, but it does feel cheaper. I don't like the navigation pad compared to the stick on the 6700. It also appears at least as sluggish. I also find it quite odd that I have service most places, despite the phone showing no bars? Hopefully Verizon will have the best service, but as far as WM6 devices, I am not overly impressed. So, not everyone that criticizes Verizon is an AT&T customer.

I've only had the 6800 a few days, but I'm VERY impressed. I tried out the Treo 700wx (two different handsets) and got TERRIBLE reception, lousy bluetooth, and couldn't find/press the tiny buttons accurately. Yes, it looked great - but worked like a nightmare! The 6800 is compact, user-friendly, gets excellent signal, has a great screen, etc. I love the way the screen shifts to landscape as soon as you slide out the keyboard...but you don't need tiny buttons to dial calls - you can use the screen, contact information, or voice command. Windows Mobile setup and integration was easy...Outlook...e-mail...I'm loving this phone. I don't know how durable it will be, but I love the functionality, which beats the Treo hands down. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow primus! No need to get so defensive. ๐Ÿคจ He just doesn't like the phone. Not every phone is going to work for everyone. Doesn't mean there is something wrong with them.

More customer friendliness from the arrogant Verizon employees who inundate this forum these days.

Don't you people have an internal website where you can blow smokes up ur own butts all day long ?

Haha this is a source where employees can vent their frustration.

You know I was thinking about making an indie film about cell phone reps ... kinda like clerks. I was a cell phone rep for 5-6 years so I know how it is.

I think the 6800 is great. It looks sharp and is very light. I really don't understand what your complaining about but I guess people can always find something to complain about. Just my thought

dude what the hell ... if he doesn't like it then he doesn't like it. Not everyone likes the new 2009 Nissan GT-R but I love it.

Anyway, Joshieca - if the PDA device is really top priority for you, I'd do what one person said - have 2 services - one for PDA usage and a basic one for all of your voice calls.

And see if your employer has a contract with either carrier.
