"Excellent phone with a couple of deal-breaking drawbacks"3.5 starson by ronipowell
Pros: Intuitive touch screen, user friendly interface
Cons: Battery life, ascending ringtones
Summary: I used this phone for nearly a week and loved the phone itself. I found it very user friendly and easy to navigate between phone, contacts, messaging, tools, etc. A couple of touches was all it took to navigate almost anywhere. Sound quality and Bluetooth connectivity with my Acura were excellent. However, a couple of issues caused me to return the phone: battery life and ascending ringer. I am not a heavy phone user, but 1 day to 1 1/2 days was the most I could get out of a full battery charge. I was seriously afraid that if the phone had to search for a signal any while traveling or if I had to use the phone quite a bit one day, that I would wind up with a dead battery before getting a chance to recharge at night. The second issue, the ascending ringer, could not be changed and did not get loud enough to hear before the caller would hang up or the call would go to voice mail. This resulted in me having to check my phone periodically and return missed calls. I used my previous phone on vibrate a lot with a belt clip, but the vibrate on the Glimmer was also weak and hard to feel. So, overall, an excellent phone with need of a couple of tweeks.
