"Best Smartphone out today Bar None!"5.0 starson by Stiemroll
Pros: Driving Mode is AWESOME!Huge screen, speed, size and weight, usability, camera, video recording, etc. Battery life is also very passable....Did I mention Driving Mode is AMAZING?!
Cons: Tmo bloatware, even though I've gotten rid of it, it is a pain in the you know what.
Summary: I have had mostly every high-end Tmobile cell phone that's ever been created including the Cliq's, Vibrant, HTC's (from the Amaze down to their very first on Tmo)and there is not a phone even close to the greatness of this phone. I am blown away by the enormous vibrant screen on this beast. I can keep it at 40% and it's still vibrant! I would usually pump up my brightness to 85% minimum as I like brightness, but I don't need to with this beauty, which keeps my battery life averaging around a day (24hrs) with pretty consistent usage which is great for a smartphone. It's blazing fast, record 1080p video that looks stunning and the 8mp camera definitely does the job when you need good pics at a snap. The feature that adorns me the most (if you see my pro's I suppose you can guess lol) is the Driving Mode. I discovered it on a whim while looking for widgets to place on one of my screens. The voice recognition is above average at minimum. I don't have to yell or talk like a robot for it to understand me. I can do anything I want while driving and never have to touch the phone once the app is enabled. Text hands free, make phone calls, get navi directions, dictate a memo, play music...whatever you wanna do it's there for you.
Overall this is a great phone and I can see myself holding on to this for quite a while. Also, ICS is on the Horizon, as it was recently announced in Tmo's blog that the update is already in process to be released within the next month. I had the Vibrant for almost a year (the longest I've had a cell since smartphones came out) and I can see holding on to this for AT LEAST that long!
