A piece of crap.

from Phonedog
Pro: 0 Con: Everything. Using experience: 14 days Everytime I try to touch the screen to unlock it, it doesn't want to unlock and I end up lossing calls. This is bull, for the price that we pay for these cell phones you would think that they would work better then they do.

Pro: looks good, talking on the phone is very clear, typing isn't that hard on the touchscreen, solid construction. pictures from the camera in daytime look very good. Con: my first battery gave up on me 1month and 4 days after getting it. I got a new one and it seems to be working. touchscreen is incredibly choppy under normal conditions, but it freaks out and lags when you get a text message, definitely not a good phone for someone who gets texts all the time. the phone would probably burst into flames. camera has no exposure adjustments whatsoever, so taking pictures in dark or dimly lit rooms is impossible. also the predictive texting is the most retarded o Using experience: 60 days As a phone, its very good. as a music player, it sounds good. As a camera, its only good in the daylight. If you buy it primarily for texting, you will probably hate it. Less

I'm on my second one, and taking it back for good today. Whenever I try to text, it pushes "lkjsdlkfjlkjdf??dfjo" and clicks send. It's really embarassing. Also, sometimes it freezes and calls can't be answered and texts can't be read. Less

Pro: great battery life, decent signal, decent web browser, alarm clock is great. Con: moisture touch screen, hangs up if U touch ur face accidently,alot of strokes to send a text, wont read photos off a mem card Using experience: 7 weeks most sensative screen is the biggest issue, hands have to be dry, no gloves or else the screen goes crazy. Still can't get photos to read on the phone, can't find out how either. Noone seems to know. Too many Q&A when u want to send a text. Keep the phone away from ur face when u talk, u'll end up ending call or muting. Less

Pro: Touch screen, data plan not required, qwerty keyboard pretty accurate Con: It's a moisture sensing touch screen - can't use when wearing gloves, can't customize main screen, can't handle much at one time, only holds 100 texts in inbox Using experience: 30 days I got this phone a month ago from us cellular. I had an lg scoop and went through a lot with that one - but after dropping the phone in the sink I had to get a new phone asap. I got the motorola crush and at first I liked it, but had a hard time getting used to the screen. A month later I still can't get used to the screen. I used to love texting and now it's just a hassle half the time. It takes about 4 or 5 steps just to send a text. Plus if you're texting and get an incoming text it slows the phone down and you have to stop what you're doing and wait for it to catch up. Also whenever i'm talking to someone it sounds like a number is being pushed so I get that beeping in my ear all the time - but the person on the other line doesn't hear it. The other day I was on the phone and it hung up on the person I was talking to, I looked down at the phone and it started going through and pushing every button on the screen and typing things in - even though I was not touching the screen at all. I did this until I restarted it. It has done this a few times. I have my phone set to remember new words on texting .. but it doesn't. It also chooses odd words before normal ones on the itap setting. For example if I wanted to type 'just' it would bring up something weird like 5tsu instead?? Returning the phone today, I can't deal with this for a year and a half .. think i'm going to go back to an lg Less

Pro: Decent quality screen Accurate touch response Easy to use Quick access to common features Con: Some fonts look very outdated Menu scrolling can be difficult - easy to select the wrong thing Using experience: 1 days The Motorola Crush is the smart phone for the poor man. In appearance it looks much like phones that require a premium data package. For those not wanting to spend $20-$30/month on a data plan, the Crush is a decent choice. None of the features are new with perhaps one exception. There is a built in pedometer, which some might find a very nice feature. It seems that unless you are buying a more premium phone, the features of more basic phones has plateaued. I am replacing a Nokia 6265i with the Crush. The Crush seems to be the first more basic phone offered by US Cellular that is an equal to the Nokia 6265. Camera quality is decent - 2.0 megapixels. I haven't purchased a Micro SD card to try out the sound player. If you have old corded headsets with the smaller jack, they will not work with the Motorola Crush which takes a more standard 3.5 mm headphone jack. The phone does come with one stereo headset jack. Overall recommendation: Quality phone for the price. It maybe won't impress all your friends, but it will save you money over phones that require monthly data plans. Less
