Re: poor choice?

lol, just thought i'd post something here so ya wont feel too lonely. i got an epic 4g so i can't really relate to you. i'm thinking about the photon, but will likely hold out for the epic touch 4g, and stay with sammy. but i am giving some thought. i know that not having a lot of dev attention is an issue for me, i just like it when other people have the same phone i do and can offer experience & advice when issues occur.

i'm not sure what you might have missed with this phone(moto photon).....super fast, great reception, call quality is very good, photo's are better than average. only thing i haven't liked so far is it'll shut off by itself but sprint , my carrier assures me they are working on it.

might wanna wait for the gs2 if your not sure about this one.....just my 2 cents.

did i say i love this phone !

Re: poor choice?

don't have the device but it is a strong front runner of choice for my upgrade. im just holding off 'til next week so i can at least compare it with sg2 and see which one i would like better.

i think the possible answer to why not too many people in the photon section is because people that can upgrade now, are waiting for the sg2 to come out next week or waiting to see if the nexus prime will come to sprint.

@Ronny71 yea according to this both Moto and Sammy are rated below the industry average for customer satisfaction and support.

I've never had a Samsung ...But the MoPho was one badass phone...other than the constant freezin...I woulda kept it...I'm sure they will work that out with an OTA update soon...with enuff complaints...

I'm glad they fixed it...
I like everything runnin on my phone...most of the time...Thats why I get the biggest battery I can get when it comes out...I swear by Seidio...So when I used to do a Hard Reset on the Mopho it ran good for awhile till I loaded it back up and ran all my apps and Launchers...Once I did this I would get the return of the Freezes...I ran the most current OTA which fixed other problems I had at the time but not that (Freezes...)so I just got frustrated and returned it fo the EVO 3D...I had the Mopho for three weeks...

I loaded everything up on the EVO I had on the Mopho and it ran Flawless...Just like it did on my old EVO 4G...So that helped make the decision to stay with the EVO...But whoever has the MoPho has one great phone...If I could afford two I'd have them both for now...Till sumthin else cums out...Which will be soon and the EVO will go on EBay for sale...Which will help pay for the new phone...Hopefully the Prime or the HTC Blast...Both machines I've read will really rock...We'll just have to wait and see...But I'll betcha the Stock Battery will suck...It always does...When will they learn...????
