Problems with the dual screens???
So I was wondering if anyone else has had any kind of problems with the bottom screen. Hence, your practically always bouncing the top screen off of it.
I love this phone. I moved out of an HTC EVO for this phone. Initially, I wasn't that impressed but once I got used to all the different modes I love this phone. I use this as my work phone. Email, Texting, Confernce Calls, Calendar, and Agendas this phone does it all perfectly. I also use ths phone as my personal phone. At night in bed I use this instead of my laptop. I watch videos and surf the web. It's great!
I also downloaded all the apps that mimicked the EVO. So if you are in love with HTC Sense you can make your Echo very similiar but with two screens.
The only thing this phone does not have is Wimax. No big deal I can use WiFi at most places anyway. Wimax is not availble most of the time for me any way.
Give the phone a chance. Believe me, you will love it.
Come on Sprint!
When I first heard about this phone I was all hyped up, but when my phone came in April 17th all the hype was shortly lived. I've switched to this phone 2x, but I'm returning it ASAP.
Kept my Epic 4g
I love the dual screens
(2) Batteries come with the Echo
Camera took good pics
I like the way you can use the external batt. charger to charge the phone w/o plugging it into the wall. Thought that was very cool.
Battery life is horrible
Phone is 3g (No 4g at all)
Screen Resolution is poor (outside)
Call reception was bad
95% of my apps looked like crap (tablet mode)
Screens are too small (reminds me of the Touch Diamond screen)
Divider gets annoying after looking at it for awhile.
No Visual Voicemail?
$400 plus w/o upgrade
$199 with upgrade
Phone could've been awesome, but I think Kyocera put it out too fast. Just a little tweaking may have led to one of the best phones ever.
*Just switched back to my Epic (which by my own opinion, is the best phone Sprint has to offer thus far) I'm waiting for the Nexus 4g to be released on the 8th of May.
