Pros Coming from an LG Shine, I like that I still have the Mobile TV and Video camera, but its even better because now I have a QWERTY pad, which is amazing, and a TOUCH screen! The Navagation system is pretty neat too! I love that it comes in orange!
Cons Really, the only thing I can say I DON'T like about it is the touch screen. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the touch screen, but its a little unstable, sometimes takes a bit to registered, but its not too frustrating.
Summary I just got it for my birthday on the 21st of November, 11 days after it hit the shelves, and I am 100 % happier with this phone then my prior LG Shine. Now I loved the Shine, but this phone can do everything that one could, only this one has the QWERTY pad, touch screen, and it comes in ORANGE!!! My favorite color on a cell phone! Other than the touch screen being stubburn sometimes, I absolutely love the phone and wouldn't trade it for nothing! Not even an Apple I Phone! Had one, didn't like!
Pros I like the touch screen, and keyboard overall its a good phone im just really picky and comparing features to my blackberry
Cons I dont like that the phone is so thick and the keyboard is hard to use because i have tiny hands, i dont think that there is a way to set your mp3 files as your ringtone there are only 2 txt tones to pick from and the alarm isnt load @ all
Summary when i saw the quickfire online it looked great and had great reviews so i got it, its a good phone overall but i think its made for a younger crowd. i had a blackberry before i got the quickfire and there are features with the blackberry i liked better so i may be returing the quickfire but i cant decide i just dont like the bulkyness of the quickfire it would be so much more attractive if it was just a little smaller
Pros The touch screen is the best part. The qwerty keyboard is close behind. This phone is very user friendly. I like the slide feature because it protects the keyboard. Text messaging is a breeze. The design is impressive and durable - nothing cheap.
Cons I've read reviews about the sluggish key response but honestly it's not enough to notice. Other than that I have no cons to report.
Summary I traded my Blackberry Curve for this phone and I have not regretted it for one second. I like to stay on top of the newest phones and the Quickfire has proven to be an incredibly AWESOME phone. It is very user friendly. The Quickfire is a phone of Convenience. Everything you need is just one click away. The touch screen, for me, is the best feature.
I use the Moto Pure bluetooth with this phone and the pairing was quick and automatic.
One recommendation. Don't buy the hard case covers for this phone unless you intend to keep it permanently on the phone. I thought I was going to break the phone removing one. The leather cases or the silicone covers are the best.
Overall, this is the best phone I have ever owned. This is a KEEPER!!
Pros The touch screen has good resolution and seems like it will hold up. The slide out keyboard is a great feature if you text a lot. I'm not a huge texter but appreciate the keyboard in other ways. Also simple interface, full web/emaill/aim capabilities
Cons Not a great phone for heavey internet users. The touchscreen/browser combo is awkward. As someone who uses the internet regulary to check sport scores, email, news, weather etc it's a dissapointment. Limited custumization of settings cartoonish icons
Summary I'm undecided if i'm going to keep it. Internet use is subpar and i do question the overall quality of the phone and if it will last 2 years. The touchscreen seems reliable but the bottom shell is made of fairly cheap plastic. Still with care i doubt there would be trouble. Overall it's a phone that will get most things done well and without headaches. Still it could use a lil more substance to back up the style.
Pros I like the form factor and the fact that it has such a decent sized screen with good resolution to boot. Many features but yet easy to use.
Cons What others may have mentioned, phone jack (remedied by Blue Tooth), and data transfers via blue tooth. But everything has a work around (email, etc. for files to share) so not too big of a deal.
Summary If you read the instructions on anything you have problems with for this phone and the answer is not there, it's pretty easy to find the answer on-line. At least for me it was.
The screen's sensitivity is not a big deal either. Once I got the hang of it, I wasn't having any problems whatsoever.
This phone is the best of both worlds for me. I like the interface of my iPod Touch, but I knew that I could not type on it so the iPhone was not an option for me. I like QWERTY keypads, but when they are exposed in the open, they can get easily damaged or excessive wear on the keys. This is a slider so that helps prevent alot of the keypad issues.
This is probably the most bang for the buck phone you can get. Anything else that costs more (Samsungs and LG's) cost you a premium and the difference is not that great for what you pay for.
Alot of AT&T features are present and ready to use, ala carrier phone. So you won't be missing anything when you upgrade.
This is a happy medium phone. It's not too basic, but it's not a full fledged Smart Phone either.
It doesn't disappoint and like I said, it is probably the best 'bang for the buck' phone you can get right now.
