bigkahunano's review of the ZTE Warp

Horrible Horrible Phone

I keep hearing Blackberry is dead. Move to an Android phone. I really tried to like this phone. No I wanted to love this phone. I decided to to a comparison side by side. I had my wonderful old??? technology blackberry 8350 with the new and exciting?? ZTE Warp android phone. Both batteries were fully charged and removed from the charge at the same time. In 5 hours, i literally made 3 phone calls that lasted a total of 6 minutes on the ZTE and the phone was turned off sitting in my car for one of those 5 hours. My workhorse blackberry was on for the entire time retreiving my emails from 4 different email address and I made 10 phone calls lasting about 45 minutes. After the 5 hours I still had 95% battery on my Blackberry but my Android phone had 10% battery. I drove immediately to the local Best Buy where these geeks supposedly know everything. I was told that this is normal for a Android phone 4 hours of battery life is normal for the amount of work I was doing with this phone. Wait 6 minutes of phone calls is normal in 4 hours. So they told me I had to shut off data to my phone and my battery will last much longer. So if I wanted to check my emails I had to turn the data back on get my emails and then shut my data off every time. That is so counterproductive.
I should add that my blackberry battery finally got down to 20% when I was ready to put it back on its charger at 10pm since my day had started at 5am.
The touch screen keyboard was also counterproductive. A quick text that consists of a 10 second type on my physical keyboard took over 2 minutes because of the sensitivity. I am a typist and type over 90 WPM with zero mistakes on the physical keyboard. Now I am typing on this horrible Interface at a blinding 3 wpm. No Blackberry is not dead, Go for the flashy bells and whistles, I will take productivity and workhorse style phone over this garbage any day. Long live blackberry. Keep up the great work RIM. Keep that physical keyboard and long battery life.
