"Super Smartphone/5x more poweful than an Iphone!! 2 notches up from the AT&T Tilt replica!!"on by William.Jones19703
Pros -Wi-fi -Bluetooth -3 Mp Camera -Solid feel -Usable and inutiutive out of the box -Expandable with Micro SD cards 4 gig and above -Windows mobile 6 pro with Outlook compatibility - Word, P.Point Excel
Cons -Recommend getting Li- Polymer Battery otherwise; low battery life with all radios (Bluetooth, Edge and/or Wi-Fi running.) -software is best loaded on the microSd to maintain the system performance.
Summary I own the Tytn II and the first thing I wanted to do is compare it to many devices. Everyone wants to know they made the best choice for their money. First of all The Tytn II is NOT the AT&T Tilt!!!AT&T Tilt is loaded with "bloatware" that drastically slows performance and does NOT have these Tytn II features:
-Unlocked from the factory
-2 year manufacturer's warranty
-Front camera for video conferencing
-TouchFlo Interface (similar to iphone)
-Business card scanner
-TomTom Navigator 6 Taster Version
The Tytn II / Kaiser is the latest and greatest Technology going into 2008!The first device I have seen that is intergrated and all parts work seamlessly. It is user friendly but has taken me over 2 weeks to learn different features of the phone. It acts as a PDA seamlessly with no crashes. With all the Information, email and time management software you expect. The connectivity is what will really shock and please.
With certain carriers the Wi-fi and Edge seem equally as fast as you'd expect wi-fi to be from say a laptop. Connectivity features and the built in GPS will really suprise you.
The GPS has very fast aquisiton. faster than some stand alone gps devices. map programs like google maps, Tom Tom 6(which comes with it) are really fast and clear. There are other 3rd party programs that will test and show you the different ways to track with the GPS.
Phone Quality from people I have asked while talking too claim that,The voice sounds clearer, deeper with absolutely no noise. Thats from using the device itself without Bluetooth.
The phone has many options and combinations of call packages. You can use third part VOIP programs like skype or vonage with its Wi-fi capability and have a wireless data plan on a regular carrier also. or just use Wi-fi with your phone with acess to millions of free locations. You would still have internet access if you had just a Pay-As-You go service. Alot of possible combinations.
The phone acts as an upgradable Mp3 player. As big a micro Sd card you get is as many songs as you can hold!! That and some more on the built in memory. The most awesome feature for the music playback is the player that comes with the Tytn II allows you to make ringtones with your mp3s and edit the section you want as the ringtone as you listen to it!!!!! Its really cool have to try it. No more buying ringtones!!!
Internet is beautiful bit you need a third party browser like Opera or Minimo to enjoy the speed and clarity of the web. This isnt a watered down internet it is THE internet. You can even get SSL v.3 security. There is a ton of software and a ton of software specifically for this device.
Touchflo is the software similar to the iphone that lets you scroll and explore with your finger. I have big, meaty finger and was always worried that finger navigation wouldnt work. It works on the Tytn II. When I hit the area where the "X" is, to close a program, it seems to know thats my intent. I was trully shocked that scrolling up/dpwm responded the same user friendly way!
Havent tried the camera yet but photos that are uploaded look excellent when viewed and it great for sharing with family.
Overall this is a great product just be patient theres alot to learn and alot to customize. You really need to make the investment for the additional Lithium - Polymer batteries that last up to 2 1/2 times longer. The battery that it comes with has to be charged and discharged 4-6 times before a decent and consistant charge is held.You will have to customize and adapt the device to you. It was designed to be yours!! I originally bought it for my trip to Europe. One device to be my GPS/Map, Listen to music (instead of bringing an MP3 player), Play games (instead of bringing a portable game console), Check out the internet and my email(without an I-cafe or laptop) and a Camera (without carrying another device thats just a camera)!!!
Pros Does everything you expect a PDA phone to do and so much more
Cons Take a little long for GPS to find satalites
Summary This is my first ever PDA/Smart phone with WM6. The phone it replaces is a Nokia 6230i which was basically just a phone and I used trouble free for over 2 years so I basically had absolutely no need to surf the net or chat on the go, and yet I decided to give one of the most anticipated phones a try.
Now I'll say this, I've been following the progress of the iPhone for a long time and being from the Netherlands, I guess I had the advantage of seeing US customers go through the ups and down before I got my own hands dirty. Perhaps having never even held an iPhone, I may not be qualified to state the following, but from what I've read about the iPhone with locking and obligation this and that and having had the Tytn II for nearly 2 months, all I can say is I KNOW I made the right decision!!!
The querty keyboard feels so great and the sliding mechanism springs really nicely in one hand. The backlighting is also very cool! The phone itself is a nice weight, some of my friends have said it feels slightly heavy, but those were my female friends who all own phones which would blow away in a breeze, and what do you expect on a phone that can do everything?!? I think the phone feels of a high quality weight.
The large touch screen is great! so crisp and clear viewing small text, photos and video is a joy!
One of the things I was worried about was the speed of getting things done on the phone, and though I have no comparison with other PDA/Smart phones, I am used to just pressing a button and viewing my contacts or smss or whatever, and this phone does just that. I had a chance to play with a Nokia N95 before and found it lagging constantly and it got annoying fast. Loading applications, files, whatever, on the Tytn II is quick and doesn't take so much time that its annoying at all!
Speaking of applications, how great it is to be able to customize EVERYTHING about this phone from third party aps, to themes to soft buttons, even ringtones and not pay 1.98 for them!!! I'm running an application called pocketCM which has basically turned my contacts and sms list into an iPhone wanna be! Flick scrolling which slows down, and threaded sms, and, oh yeah, I can customize it to my every desire! It also has a built in application which can recognize handwriting if you have the phone in portrait mode, but I still prefer the full keyboard which is a joy to use, I had to upgrade my sms bundle from my provider because I send more than I used to!
I've browsed the web, chatted on msn live, and do a whole lot of things on this amazing mini super computer and the battery has never gone lower than 40%, power management is fantastic. Having considered the Nokia N95 and reading the battery horror stories, there is no comparison! The phone will easily last days with normal use!
Okay I sould say something about the cons:
The built in GPS does take a few minutes sometimes to connect to satetlites, sometimes up to 5 minutes but those were times when i was indoors, outside, it doesn't even take a minute. TomTom Nav6 is awesome and Google maps is also great.
okay okay, cons: the camera, though it is great quality, seems to have a low frame rate when taking regular pics so getting a sharp picture can be tricky. It has no flash, but doesn't need it because it compensates internally.
um, it takes 10 seconds to boot up when resetting after installing a new application which is HORRIBLY LONG!!!
Naw, this phone rocks, it might seem pricey, but this is what a phone is supposed to be like, and thats coming from someone who never needed half the things this phone can do and now will probalby never be able to live without them... I guess thats a con too
Pros First of all, there is nothing missing- he had it all: Wi-fi, BT, Mobile internet with unlimited package (connect to your lap top via usb or BT and thats it!), Full keyboard, msn, Gps, icq, "real" IE, fantastic GUI and much more. a genius gadget!!!
Cons *waight about 190gr- for me it dosnt matter. thats the only con...
Summary My life changed completly. thats it. there are whole days im not sitting on my p.c because i dont have to any more. checking E-mails is so easy and fast, inc. responding. It connects to your "tech world" so easy, fun, freindly and efficient.
***I bought my 60 years old father also this mini machine. he said to me last week- "I cant belive hoe my life changed due to such a small gadget". ah, and yes, he can not live with out him- and im talking about a person that untill the Kaizer wasnt "lived" in the front of technology.
by the way- before i chose the kaizer, i asked atleast appro. 50 hi tech and computers engineers- there were no question or doubt- all of them said to me in a large chior: "Kaizer. after you try, you will know Y".
know i understand.
This is the best comm. gadget for the modern buisness man.
Pros While it works, it was an ok phone
Cons Lousy HTC support and warranty.
Summary I had this phone for less than 4 weeks through Expansys before the screen broke. After sending the device back for repairs and 4 months passed, what was my surprise to learn that the warranty does not cover the screen. Even worse, even though I accepted the qutoe provided by HTC to repair the screen, an additional 3 months passes and still no sign of my phone or a replacement for it. Won't do business again with Expansys and will never buy an HTC again...
