Pros I love the color and the slim sleek design. It works well for text messaging. Music sounds good. The key pad has a good feel.
Cons I gave this 4.5 stars for 3 reasons. 1) It's a fingerprint magnet 2) The picture quality isn't great & it has no flash. I've used the night mode & it's ok but still not what you get with a flash 3) I sometimes "cheek" the touch screen when on a ca
Summary It works well for me personally. I am pleased with it. I mainly use it for texting and calling. I do not have Mobile Web (etc) so I apologize that I can't comment on that aspect. I love the up and down slide phones. I suppose the battery life could be better, & I get fingerprints and makeup on the screen when on a call. You may also want to invest in a protective case &/or screen protector to avoid scratching. I do wish it had a flash but outdoor pics are good, & there's no video either. The camera does have a lot of fun frames & things to accent your photos. It has the T9 Word feature for texting, which is my personal preference. Music sounds good & it uses standard headphones which is a plus. Basically, for the most part, it does what I want it to. I have it in red, & find it to be aesthetically pleasing. Hope this helps.
Pros Great reception, Great Music player, Sleek look, long battery life, Easy to use
Very customizable (ringers, displays, menu layouts)
Cons Non-Standard USB connection on the phone itself (can't use a standard USB cable), Fingerprint magnet, No EV-DO (this didn't bother me, as it mainly is used to download music straight to phone), No case or holster comes with the phone
Summary I just got this phone, and have had it for 3 days. I haven't been able to test the battery life, as I have only charged it one time, and it's still going! This is a great looking phone, and does not feel cheap like other reviews have said. It does show finger-prints, so if you can't stand that, do not get this phone!
As for the features/ease of use, I was able to add songs onto the phone using Windows Media Player (you do not have to use Rhapsody), and the internal memory will hold approx. 100 songs. You can add a 16Gb Micro-SD card. I have 64-bit Vista on my laptop, and it recongized the Trance immediately, and loaded all drivers for it. All I had to do was drag the songs I wanted onto the phone, then click sync. It added approx. 65 songs in about 4 minutes. Could not have been easier.
The charger is a really nice feature, as it combines the charger and USB cable all into one. I wish it had a standard USB connection on the phone, but it is proprietary. You have to use the cable that comes with it. However, you can charge your phone using your PC with this cable, and avoid the wall outlet, if needed.
The sound from this phone is truly outstanding. It sounds better than my IPOD for music, and the voice quality is great. Everything is customizable on this phone. The display, ringers, menus, menu layout, soft keys, and touch controls are all adjustable/customizable. When you first activate the phone, it takes you through a simple "Setup Wizard" that walks you through all of this to "personalize" your phone. I thought this feature was very convenient, allowing you to change all of your setting at one time.
Other than the fingerprints, the proprietary USB connection on the phone, and the fact that it did not come with a case or holster, I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Definitely worth the 2 year upgrade!!!
Pros Great speaker and mp3 player. Very slim and easy to use. Pretty good battery life.
Cons I'm on my 3rd trance in 4 months. Every Trance I get works fine for awhile, then it will just turn off randomly (in your pocket, in the middle of a conversation, during a text). The touch screen on the outside isn't as accurate as it should be.
Summary Overall I would not recommend the Trance. At first I loved it and its capabilities but then having it turn off on me all the time made it not worth it at all.
Cons -Battery life.
Summary I just got this phone for my birthday a couple days ago, and so far, I love it.
I'll just explain the Cons.
well, the battery life sucks. The last bar takes a longer to use up than the others. and I only used it for about a couple hours and I was already down one bar. But that's probably because I've been using it a lot.
If you hate finger prints, then this phone wouldn't be for you. Becuase of the shininess, it get them easily.
I put touch pad for both a pro and a con. It sometimes doesn't respond. but I think I really like it and it has a great look.
