is that new copy cat phone any good?
im looking to get a new cell..
dose anyone have one?
Eh... not so good.
Personally, I have an iPhone but my friend has one of those voyagers (I think they're called)
Here's what I think of it:
-It's a pressure touch screen, it kind of annoyed me.
-The menus are typical phone menus which require you to go through massive amounts of searching to get what you want.
-The black and red menus look cool but it's just not as "here I am" as the iphone menu.
-The back plastic part looks and feels cheap
-the screen smudges like no other.
what I like?
-easy phone keys
-the vibrating when you touch the screen
get it if you're tied to Verizon
if you have the opportunity though
go for the iPhone in a heartbeat.
It's not an iPhone. That's all I have to say about that.
I havent used one, but if its from verizon you know the GUI will suck. Its basically a requirement in addition to being a CDMA phone.
pressure touch screen.....ahhhhhh...
Yeah, I think the iPhone did its' part in spoiling us
it's nothing like the iPhone's capacitive touch screen, it's a pain.
multi-touch on the iPhone is also amazing.
I was a verizon customer for some time and was always intrigued by the iphone, but never really considered switching carriers. So when the voyager came out, i got it thinking it would fill the void of not having an iphone, but i was definitely wrong....its a decent phone, but the scrolling on the touch screen was a bit difficult to use and not as responsive as the iphone. The menu is very plain and dull in comparison to the iphone, and the phone itself was just too bulky for my taste...so i just took the plunge and went for the iphone.....havent looked backed once.
I saw it at the verizon store.... I think its way overpriced for the features you get. I know you can get a better Nokia or Samsung one on ebay for a lot less... or better yet, the iPhone. I liked the keyboard on the voyager but the price tag made me think the value of the phone was bad....
I tried it real quick at the Verizon store. I found it confusing to navigate compared to the iPhone. You can navigate the iPhone easily even if you've never used it before. I also didn't like the touch screen. I couldn't get a quick tap to register as a "tap" whereas on the iPhone the quick tap works.
It's a good idea of what not to buy.
My mom likes hers. You do have to press the touchscreen as though you're physically touching buttons (with pressure). The GPS is a pain in that you have to pay $10 a month to use it. But that's Verizon for you, pay a monthly feel to unlock features of a phone you bought and they don't even own the gps satellites.
Isn't that what Apple and AT&T did, you have to sign up to use it.
My sister just got one at Christmas and her screen already has 2 decent scratches on it. She keeps it in a case (that has a screen protector) at all times. I think that screen is plastic and not glass like the iPhone.
As for the phone part, I played around with it....while its not terrible, I did not enjoy using it. I think there are much better phones for Verizon right now.
I have an iPhone, so I might be just a lil bias but seriously, I think there are better phones out there for you.
? That would be like having to pay AT&T a fee to use the Wifi. iPhone doesn't have a GPS.
You have to apply some pressure to the touch screen that sucks so that why I dont want it
