Pros windows mobile. you can dial from the today screen. etc.
Cons Videos don't play as good as the 700w. screen is not as bright. More complicated than the 700p
Summary I had a 700p from sprint for 2 weeks. the P was a good phone. easy to use, but it lacked a few things and i had a problem with my OnDemand that never got fixed.
I just got my 700wx yesterday. Its a little more complicated that the 700p, and the screen is not as bright, but in my opinion its a much better phone.
You can search the web on the today schreen and dial too. It also has a cool picture speed dial that line up the pictures on your today screen and you just tap the pic to call the person. It also has built in voice command that was not on the 700p and i like being able to actually compose Word, Powerpoint and Excel document right on the phone, the 700p only let you get the documents. I still havent found all the fetures of the phone, but i like it.
Overall the 700p was much easier to use, but the added functions of the 700wx makes up for all the things that it lacks, in my opinion. I really like the 700wx, but i cant give it a rating of 10 because it complicated and the screen is not as good as the 700p, but i really like it.
Pros Memory upgrade......
Cons very very very few.
Summary I have used the following:
XV6700 (current phone)
Hands down the best of the lot was the 700W, BUT, the memory was such deal breaker that it defeated all the other pluses. Now Sprint has addressed that by upgrading the memory and CNET still gives ita 7.0? I would think twice before putting any stock in these reveiws.
Pros Windows Mobile, EvDO, QWERTY keyboard, touch screen
Cons Windows Mobile (yes, its a pro and a con)
Summary Don't listen to Cnet's whining about the 240x240 resolution on the screen. They're idiots; 240x240 is the ONLY resolution available at that size. Obviously can't go up to 320x240 and still keep the Treo form factor; then the screen would be a tall rectangle. The next step up from 240x240 on Windows Mobile is 480x480, which is INSANELY high for a screen thats small. In fact it would be so small, it would be nearly pointless because you couldn't even see all the pixels at normal eye distance. Furthermore, a 480x480 screen of that size doesn't even exist right now. If one was to be produced, it would be EXTREMELY expensive! There are no alternatives! Do your homework Cnet!
Pros Loaded with useful features, easy to use, intuitive, great media player, expandable, customizable, productive,
Cons Headphone volume ought to be louder. More software should be included for the price.
Summary Working in mobile industry I get to play with lots of phones. There simply isn't anything on the market that comes close to versatility of this device. I considered Motorola Q which would save me $150 but it was too much of a tradeoff for me. TreoP is a good phone but it's just not as functional. So after playing with all these devices I married WX two years, courtesy of Sprint, for following reasons:
The 240X240 resolution is just fine. I used P and WX side by side for about two weeks and resolution difference was not noticable.
WX has much better web browsing capabilities than P. I felt at home with WX browser while P was somewhat awkward.
Mobile Media Player 10 is superb. The sound was crisp albeit not as loud as I'd like it to be.
I think WX version has a louder speakerphone than P.
Contrary to some reviews from uneducated users, making calls from WX is a breze. You just enter the number on "today" screen and hit talk. Someone said you have to go through menus to dial a number. Not true. If you are already not on the "today" screen which is rarely, you just press the phone button and voila, dial your number on the keyboard or directly on the screen.
Many people here say that exclusion of WiFi is a big deal. Well blame carriers on this one. They are afraid that with WiFi and Skype cusotmers can bypass their networks and make free calls. Since carriers control the market the manufacturers have been releasing WiFi rather slowly. To add WiFi to Treo, purchase a WiFi card.
One cool feature is the ability to sync your phone via bluetooth so you never have to deal with USB cable. You just bring the phone in range of your bluetooth to sync it. Bluetooth mechanism on WX is pretty advanced. I paired it with my BMW and a Jabra headset. When I start my car, the phone connects to it and disconnects the headset. When I leave the car, connection automatically switches to headset. How beautifully thought out. And I didn't have to configure anything to achieve this.
I've been pretty happy with the battery life given the screen size, bluetooth, and horsepower on the device.
Device has been very responsive and I haven't experienced any crashes or lockups. I did have to use "task manager" to close "On Demand", a third party program that seems to be poorly developed for Windows Mobile. I didn't experience On Demand crashed on P.
A couple of things I still haven't succeded at include downloading a file from the browser. I tried to get some files from download.com and download would not start or maybe it did but I can't find the file. I guess I'll have to read manual after all. Also, I havne't come accross handwriting recognition app for input. This may not be an option as it was on Palm PDA's I owned in past.
I still haven't subscribed to Modem Link functionality so can't comment on that.
Text messaging (SMS) functionality is very nice. Messaging software creates messaging thread making it easy to navigate SMS conversations. Automatic SMS can be triggered when you send a caller to voicemail. Cool! Something like "I'll call you in 5min" can be sent without interrupting a meeting.
There is a number of email features available from basic POP3/SMTP client to Exchange push capability for those with Exchange backends. You can create multiple accounts as well and they are kept separately with their own inbox, outbox, sent folders.
You can rely on one hand navigation for most simple taks such as dialing or looking up contacts but stylus comes in handy when you are doing a lot of scrolling, filling forms, looking for files, etc.
All around I've been very impressed by Treo WX. I would recommend it to all who enjoy having advanced features it offers at their fingertips. For some it may be too advanced in which case P may be a better, simpler option. As far as Q goes, just don't. Those who praise it either haven't tried WX or can't afford it.
Pros More Memory, Easier to Navigate, Better Reception,
Cons Txt messages are not threaded
Summary I have owned the Treo 650, 700p and now the 700wx and the wx is the best Treo yet! The 700p was a great phone too but the 700wx you can configure this phone to your personal settings. I was a little scared before I bought this phone because of some of the reviewers stating this phone was really hard to operate. I find it easier to operate than the 700p. I have yet to read the owners manual! If you are windows user you will have no problems at all. The only thing I do not like is the TXT message feature is not threaded like the 700p but all the other features out way it. My 700p used to reboot all the time and I figured out it was my bluetooth headset. I have had this phone for over 2 weeks and it has never rebooted and the reception is awesome. My 650 would drop the call everytime in a weak area but both the 700p and 700wx were strong and have never dropped a call. This phone is great and I would recommend it to anyone!
