Pro: Price, Versatility, Speed, lots of apps, wifi, call quality, multitasking, battery life! Con: Ghetto-looking Winmo 6.5 makes you feel like you're back in 2002. User interface is similarly outdated, low-res screen compared to blackberry. Using experience: 3 months I was looking for a solid smartphone that was inexpensive and would let me take advantage of Sprint's great service pricing. This phone DOES it all, as long as you don't mind a somewhat 'ghetto' looking user interface. Winmo 6.5 in the Intrepid is unskinned in many areas and lacking any pleasing eye-candy that you might find in the touch-pro series. However, this phone offers great battery life, true multitasking, and good call quality. It also offers push email and google calendar sync using the integrated ActiveSync. It's a truly powerful phone that will do everything you want it to do, if you can look past it's somewhat outdated and awkward OS. For example, you need to use an aftermarket program just to add a few favorite apps to the homescreen, otherwise you're stuck scrolling through an awkward layout of staggered app icons in a different menu. Also, the screen resolution is about half that of a Blackberry Tour.. but you do get wifi and native pocket-MS office and a PDF reader. Less

Pro: Battery life, battery, did I mention the battery? WM6.5, Nice Qwerty, Good overall feel. International SIM card. Con: 320 x 280 Screen, Voice volume 10% to low on phone. Slippery back..you have been warned! Using experience: 7 days Out of nowhere samsung hit a home run. (did that give the review away?). Did I mention I am more picky with my phones than my cars? First up..Amazing Battery....I have no idea how samsung has done it but its mind altering. This morning I got up and turn every option on the the phone at 8am to ON. Used it all morning multitasking and im at 94% battery at 3PM!!! Never seen anything like it. Great Professional phone. If you need games all day this is not your phone. Clear calls texting and email this is your phone, Speaker phone is very good, however the main phone volume is just a tad soft...another 10% it would have been perfect.....but im sure that uses more battery. Came from a Palm PRO which is a good phone...this is better much better. Cons: Samsung?...why oh why would you use the most slippery plastic know to man on the battery cover? Are you kidding? For 2 cent you could of made a grippy plastic. And while im bitching...Windows button and Ok button do not light up? Sooo Easy to fix. Ok on minor real gripe....this might be the only deal breaker from you. The small screen. 320 x 280 is ok but for 4 dollars more you could of had a perfect phone at 320 x 320. Which is the only thing that I miss on my Palm PRO. If your mission in life is to surf the web...IPHONE or ANDroid....Having said that, It is perfectly fine for a a few web hits a day and is a serious upgrade from WM6.1 all around. Summery: Great alternitive for the BB crowd and Professionals. Excellent phone quailty, outstanding battery and a long overdue upgrade for WM. Highly Recommended. Less
