How does this TNT compare to the Marbl?

I own the Virgin Kyocera Marbl and want to upgrade to a cell that is faster at texting/typing. And that scrolls pages or lets me type emails faster on the VXL mobile web.

I saw one review for this phone at this site that said it is faster than the Marbl, but MUCH faster...?

Can anyone tell me if it 'lags' or stumbles while typing texts or emails?

I type fast while texting and with the Marbl I have to wait a long time for the cursor to catch up so I can type the next letter. I do a LOT of texting (I get the 1000 pack) so that's really important to me.

I wrote a review on this phone if anyone interested in getting one wants to see my impression of its first day of use. It includes my initial startup impression of how the phone does on Virgin's mobile web or VXL.

Except for the limited themes for the phone (red, or blue), and lack of graphical smileys in the texting program, I really like the look or feel of its modernized graphics and style of the phone itself and it IS an improvement for Kyocera over the Marbl in most ways.

Would be nice to customize the text color or font for standby screen on the phone, to match the wallpaper. With some of the wallpaper, like the pale blue, the white text didn't stand out at all although it might have looked better if I adjusted the screen contr...
