I replaced my Moto Q a couple months ago and got the Samsung Instinct. I would have liked to have gotten an iPhone but At&t makes my skin crawl and I couldn't find anything about unlocking an iPhone on sprints network.
Anyway, my old Q had the Windows mobile on it. It was not a bad phone but there was a couple things that I did not like. The Blue Tooth would not work with my Mac and really didn't work with windows either. I had to look for the cable and boot up in windows to get my pictures off of it. It had no GPS and google maps would not display clearly to the point you couldn't see them so they where no help. No touch screen made navigation rather difficult with the D-pad. But it had some good points. The web browser (For not being 3G or Wi-Fi) was quite fast even when I was up at Camp Ripley and had a low signal. It had a Fully QWERTY hard keyboard that I loved. The keys where spaced apart with a gap so I could type with my fat thumbs fast and easy. It handled multi tasking really well. I could switch between playing bubble burst, my web browser and txting really fast and without losing my place or having to save my game.
With my new phone I found that for some reason I don't always go back to the same web page where I left off. Games have to load and you can't switch to a simple text without saving the game checking/replying to the text then loading the game back up. But there are some good things about it. The soft keyboard is not to bad since the screen is long enough to make the keys big and the Blue Tooth works on my Mac. I can pull all my pictures and video's off it just with a few simple clicks. It came with a 2Gb Micro SD card so I have plenty of room for stuff and it came with a spare battery/charger. The battery life is not the best on it but I would say for a touch screen phone it's not all that bad. The GPS software on the phone rocks and can always gets me where I want to go not to mention it knows where I am and will tell me the closest bar, club, restaurant, store or anything else I might need.
Well there is my review of my new phone. Would I recommend it? I suppose if you are on Sprint and looking for a low cost 3G phone yes. If you have the money to spend I would look at something better. It's the Sprint exclusive 3G so they give it away for cheap with contract renewal. I think I paid $50 for mine with a 2 year renewal.
