"On the fence on which Verizon phone to get?"4.5 starson by nunleyjjk
Pros: 1. Excellent keyboard phone.
2. Great touch phone. Improved response and feel.
3. Smart easy to use interface.
4. Decent battery life.
5. Threaded text messaging is great!
6. Decent HTML browser.
Cons: 1. Slightly chubby.
2. Only 2 themes. They're both great but the ability to incorporate variety over a 2 year contract is a MUST have for a device.
3. Overpriced BREW games vs .99cent Iphone apps Verizon, come on!
Summary: Of all the phones listed in my summary the enV Touch stands just a little taller than even the offered smart phones and is vastly superior to the "dumb phones" in Verizon's current lineup.
This phone is a great mix of the Dare and the older Voyager. It is not as thin as the Dare and lacks the Voyager's ability to view Verizon television but the gains far outweigh the losses.
If you are on the fence with your next upgrade or purchase, take the advice of a certifiable phone junkie and go with the enV Touch. Unless you NEED the smartphone capabilities you will not be disappointed.
Small touches like the proximity sensor, threaded text messaging, great camera and having a physical keyboard may seem like fluff but try going without them in any of Verizon's other phones and you'll be glad you purchased this phone, I know I am.
