"I can't put this phone down, it is exceptional!"4.5 starson by Cambrey
Pros: Great feel, build quality, super fast, and just works like you expect it to. You turn the phone and it instantly changes from portrait to landscape. Call quality is wonderful. I actually find myself enjoying the typing experience!
Cons: Blackberry browser is slow, cumbersome. A quick download of Opera Mini gave me a browser that is more on par with the iPhone and Android browsers, fixing the major problem area of the phone.
Summary: I had an iPhone and loved it, but AT&T's horrible coverage forced me to abandon it. Went to Verizon and the Storm 1 in hopes it would be a good equivalent to my iPhone. I hated the storm 1 so much I returned it within a couple of weeks and traded it for a Curve 8330. That was a good phone, but it never was great...I much prefer the larger screens on touch devices. As soon as the Storm 2 came out I decided to check it out...it is exactly what I was looking for! Feels wonderful in hand with a high end build quality and just the right amount of weight. The software is super responsive and the screen is gorgeous. I really figured I would have this for a few days, and immediately trade it in for a Droid, but with all the positive experiences I've had with this so far, the Droid had better be out of this world amazing to make me want to change. I am a big fan of the iPhone and I really prefer the typing experience on the Storm2 over the iPhone. I am perfectly happy with the Blackberry Storm 2! If you are on the fence at all, take it for a spin...I can't seem to put mine down...it really is that good.So after playing with a Motorola Droid I've settled on the Storm2 without question. Although the Droid does some amazing things, the Storm2 is everything I need and more...it's just a better fit for me
