"Not all it's cracked up to be"2.5 starson by dbramaged
Pros: HD Video and the browser is MUCH faster than previous models as well as beats out my friends' Palm Pre's. Easy to use MOST things. Games are clear and quick. Call quality is great.
Cons: Photos are 5MP BUT the quality isn't as great as previously stated. Most pictures are VERY blurry. It's hard to transfer HD videos to computer as there IS NOT A PC SYNC. The phone will disconnect from the computer on its own!!! Music play sucks!
Summary: After haveing several smartphones from HTC, 2 different Palms and the Instinct ant Instinct S30, this phone falls on its face compared to the other phones in the same price range. The video quality is completely amazing, but with continuous blurry photos, this takes out the 5MP camera completely. What are you left with? Just another Instinct! Without a PC SYNC as mentioned in the review above, transferring files is a pain. The phone will show the files for a moment and if you attempt to transfer videos, the phone will remove the files from the "REMOVABLE DRIVE" and will need to be turned off and back on just to work properly. I'm having more disappointing moments than expected. I will be returning the phone for either a Palm Pre (better price point) or HTC Hero (worth the extra money). The phone does not make up for the price as at first glance, you wouldn't know it's any better than the original instinct except the web browser. I would not recommend this phone.
