"Its goes beyond the call of duty! But a little "too new""4.5 starson by BrandenBombshell
Pros: The inovation, I like all the fetures. Design. Definatly gets attention. Tv. Internet.
Cons: Lack of games. Swivel is a hit and miss. Price.
Summary: I went and got the phone, I had read reviews but I couldn't much find anything, so I'm going to try and give an extensive review right now.
The phone on the outside;
Its about the same size of a folded Razr, About a millimeter thicker, and doesn't weight but a little. Which is wonderful. Great talk time. Wonderful battery all together.
Inside: The phone has a multitude of features. I mean it really does. As we all know it has Tv on it, Which is literally like the normal cable if your in one of those select cities, If not in one of those cities it doesn't do anything really. The Tv antenna is very nicely hidden, and I don't use it but I suppose you can. I put internet on it, and it works great on the 2.2 inch screen. It plays Video, and Mp3s, Now this is the part I really love, The speaker phone is the best Ive ever had, I exaggerate none, Its great, Sounds superb, It truly does. Bluetooth is just like all others. It has VZ navigator using Google maps to navigate you through places, I believe its .99 cents per use, or 7.99 a month. I don't use it but I have and I it would be great if I was in a jam. It has a world clock, calculator, and A "Tip calculator" For tipping your waiter. I thought that was a nice touch. The swivel design is very neat, and you do have to swivel it out to call then I swivel it back to use, It can be a little blah, but its no different then flipping open your phone to call from it really.
Here is something you all should know, in order to put music on the phone, you have to buy verizons "Music essentials kit" 29.99. It comes with a Computer connector and drivers. It makes things a lot easier, but you have to have it to put music on it. And, you can strictly put music on it from your computer, and the music you put on it cannot be used as ring tones. Which I didn't like. You can record up to an hour of video on the phone, so I just record my video on it using a makeshift Tripod I made, I would like it to be easier but it gets the job done. I put a gigabyte into it for 10 dollars from Newegg.com. I would recommend that.
There isn't a lot of "great" games for it yet. I want Tetris, Rayman, and DDR, but DDR isn't available, Tetris and Rayman are, so I just got those.
You can also check your minutes usage right on the phone, Click a button and it sends a free text with the months minutes usage info, Very nice touch.
The camara is awesome, I cant get enough of it. It has a light affect for bright days or dark nights, A zoom, flash, everything, Photo affects, Everything. =D
The swivel design is so fun and cool to me, But to talk properly, you have to swivel it back down to talk right into it, Which isn't much of a big deal. I hear fine out of the ear piece while I walk around and such, I read another review where it said the speaker had a "sweet spot" I don't know what that persons talking about.
Heres the worst thing of all. The price. When I went in and bought one, It wasn't cheap, If your starting a plan, Its great, a nice 200 dollar price tag. But I wasn't starting a new contract, so I had to pay full price. Which was 416 all together with the Music kit. Pretty hefty for most. Don't let that detune you, It has to be one of the best phones Verizon wireless offers.
