Re: Video review of VZW Touch Pro-Crippled "Should be criminally negligent"

*Sigh* Sure it's crippled, but as a phone on the verizon network it's a great smartphone. Remove TouchFlo 3D and you will free up a lot of RAM in order to run more efficiently - or just optimize the phone via reg edits. There are a lot of mixed reviews, I for one know what to expect (you can't expect the phone to be of the same performance as other carriers, you knew it was downgraded when buying it - even then it's still a great PDA).

This phone is NOT THAT BAD. I dont understand why Sprint-folk are praising their TP, it also had its problems the first month, but through the tweaks it became better.

The only thing physically "gimped" on this phone was the user-accessible RAM (approx 200MB on Sprint's vs. 100MB on VZW)

Everything else will eventually be "unlocked" by our wonderful colleagues at xda-dev and ppcgeeks. So be sure to Donate to their causes!!

The guys is overly subjective. Sounds very bitter. I guess he's got some issues in personal life....

exactly.

actually it IS that bad. Your better off getting a dang mogul the way they crippled this thing. I mean, we never said the Sprint Pro doesnt have issues, as does the Diamond, as will the Omnia also.

The point is, you have 3 other national carriers carrying full powered Touch Pros/Fuzes, and good ol Verizon decides to rob there users of some of the most important parts of this phone, that well, made it a HUGE upgrade to the 6800. If you dont think its that bad, u obviously havent used a Sprint, Alltel, or ATT one.

I think the guy who did this review is just as sarcastic as he should have been, its a shame how VZ fugged this phone.

Re: Video review of VZW Touch Pro-Crippled "Should be criminally negligent"

In my opinion, I paid for a device that was unusable and I agree with what the guy has to say. I also want to note that VZW advertises one of the highlights of the phone is touchflo3d, yet you can't run it because they cut the memory. Very misleading on Verizon's part. If I wanted a WinMo phone without the touchflo and other nice touches of the TP, I would have simply saved 150 bux and bought the xv6800 (mogul) instead. Heck, I even went back to the store a day after receiving my touch pro and did a comparison...that mogul smoked the touch pro in responsiveness and running multiple apps....and it is LOWER spec'd than this phone. This is supposed to be the latest and greatest....Yet Verizon charges the highest price of all the major carriers, then remove all the extras of the phone that everybody else gets for less money (memory, nice TouchFlo like HTC advertises, apps and little nice things such as the earbuds and halfway decent packaging). If I were HTC, I would have them remove it from their lineup becuase it is misleading. You see the phone at HTC as a beautiful product, and it is......but when you get it from VZW, it just a smartphone with a black case that is unable to run more than 1 app at a time. Again, what a shame and totally pointless. If I had a choice of carriers, I would leave right now, but nothing works in this area but VZW. Damn them...........
