1. Natalie Hernandez Thunderbolt

1.1. Pros : Screen. I'm outside now. I can read, type well. If I get a glare, just tilt a little. Camera. Great colors. Love the auto compress to send photos. And videos. Web access. Great to open several pages. And to go back & forth between them. Saves a lot of time. Copy & past works great. Flash player, big improvement. Adobe reader is great to. Love being on the phone, and finishing up paper work. Great for us multi tankers. Key board. Less type O's. For me anyway, and I type faster.

1.2. Cons : Battery life. Improvement for me though. I now only charge the phone 3xs a day instead of six. I can't create folders unless I put SD card in pc. Just one extra step I didnt need. Occasionaly my web access turns itself off. Not WiFi, but mobile access.


2. Myriah Cypriano SamsungSidekick 4G

2.1. Pros: Fun to use, like previous SK's but Android is a better OS choice I must admit. Nice assortment of applications available - I am going from a MotoQ running WinMo 6.1 to Froyo so am probably easy to impress. Phone sound and signal quality are great and it synced with my Ford Sync system perfectly and all features work except the Sync texting but most phones don't support that anyway. Everything else seems to work as it should so I am giving a 4 star rating based on the total package and hoping that the speed issue mentioned below as a Con is related to today's conditions or my current location.

2.2. Cons: Internet speed was pretty slow and inconsistent. Running Ookla's speed test on 4g I got a range of .39 to .9 gbs upload and about .56 download speeds. Ping was high at over 500 ms consistently. This test was run while the phone was indicating a 4g connection on TMobile's system. As I said, some things, like the PoP setup are not easy to find and necessitated a call to customer service to locate. Keyboard lights seem to go dim in about 2 seconds - probably another buried setting that I need to find. Volume key is on the bottom, right where I grab the phone when picking it up so I have to be careful not to turn it down accidentally.


3. Daisymarie Ballesteros Evoke QA4

3.1. Pros: -Good battery life I usually only have to charge it once every couple days, which was fine by me. -Never had a problem with reception

3.2. Cons: -Buggy interface It was weird that there were no talk or end keys on the slide out keypad, so sometimes when I tried to end the call, I couldn't because the only way to do this is unlock the touch screen then press the end call button, which didn't always work the way I wanted it too. Also, I ended up pressing buttons all the time I didn't mean to touch, just because the touch screen isn't always responsive.

5. Christopher Avarelo BB Bodd 9780

5.1. Pros: -Battery Life (wow!) I wish my other 2 phones lasted this long! -Display is bright and clear -Menus are easy to navigate and more than one way to get to things. -Smooth track pad -Fast processor -OS 6 (wish all BB's had this) is easy to use -Simple compared to most other devices -Durable (I have a 4yr old) -Syncs easily with other devices (BT) -Customizable home screens and fonts -Easy to unlock for use on outside networks -UMA -Support for 32G SD Card -Sync with iTunes library -Great camera -Proprietary (this is a Con for me as well) -Easy to fix bugs within the software (App Loader is awsome for this)

5.2. Cons: -Someone should give a day class on using these things. The OS 6 is easier to work with than other models but I'm a former iPhone user and it has been a major learning curve for me. -Still working on compatibility issues with MAC OS (Please RIM fix this) -Not too many applications are compatible with this model yet (sure this will change soon)


6. Rubaya Hiabib IPhone3GS

6.1. Pros - - Reception is as good as my Tilt and Nokia - Excellent call quality - Not one dropped call, as yet - The bluetooth headsets have not disconnected - not once, unlike both of my other current phones - The user interface is elegant! It just works. I miss the speed-dial, but I'm getting used to the "Favorites".

6.2. Cons - - Battery life - It seems to be related to phone useage, not e-mail (I'm on an Exchange-Server, and have real-time push during the work-day). - TomTom not yet available
