"Blackberry to Treo to Storm to this... Outstanding!"4.0 starson by ashtona74
Pros: Screen resolution, application organization, on screen keyboard actualy well designed. Fantastic call quality, seamless e-mail, Google Talk, Android Market.
Cons: Nothing worth noting as a con just yet.
Summary: I have been through them all. I have been a loyal subscriber of Verizon for over 9 years and I never even thought of leaving. I have had Treo's, Blackberry's, flip phones, you name it, I have owned it and none, not a single one did what I wanted it to do. One usually did one thing well and the rest poorly, which left me in search of a decent phone.So after 6 months of use, I do want to add some cons. Still, this device is amazing. However, I am experiencing severe lag with this device. I have even done a factory reset to clear all apps and pics hanging around out of memory. Still, the device has moderate to severe response issues at times. For instance, I have on several occasions been in a text and typed a full message only to see it popping up 2 or 3 characters at a time. Since my fiancee is a T-Mobile employee, I have had them check the device out and it is still in flawless condition. No drops, damage or anything of that sort. I wouldn't knock it down a star for this because I know the Android team are constantly making imrpovements. But I think this should be a top priority.
My fiancee got a myTouch as she is a T-mobile employee and after seeing it in action, I was hooked. It did everything I needed amazingly well. Texting using SMS or Google Talk is smooth and easy, Gmail is flawless and I now even have my Comcast account forwarding directly to my Gmail account. Internet browsing is fast and the web pages render amazingly well as opposed to the Storm which was terrible.
I have had the phone for 5 days and find it difficult to stay away from the Android Market. There is always something I want to download an try out.
Nice touch with the notifications. Now if I am in an app, I can see the texts roll in without having to close the app. Especially handy for when someone is just saying "K" or "ttyl" which drives me nuts, even moreso when I had to close an app just to read that. Now that is solved.
