Pearl Flip

Reviewed on Wednesday May 5, 2010 by , Edmonton
The blackberry flip phone is probably the worse phone I ever bought. The battery life is terrible, accessing something on wifi is ridiculously slow and there always strange bugs in the phone. Sometimes the phone refuses to ring for an incoming call but the external screen freezes showing incoming calls. There is always some java error message cropping up. Do yourself a favour and don't buy this phone.

Texting is difficult

That's right. I am a texter and this phone is not so text-friendly. I hope time will prove me wrong and that my BB will soon be friendly to me. I was way faster with my old Samsung m510. This is still the smartphone for me however. I really prefer flip phone to open-faced phone. It's nice to be connected with all my other friends who have BB's. Oh and one more thing, the Texas Hold 'Em game that comes on the phone is ADDICTING! Easy phone to operate (great functionality). Battery life is average. I've had it for two weeks only. NO emoticons for texting (unless you're texting from BB to BB). Can't text numbers without using two hands (need to hit the Alt button and then the number). Buttons, however, are big enough for large fingers to text. still getting use to the trackball. Good camera, good video camera. Phone seems rather durable so far. all my emails come to the BB; a nice feature.

aside from the fairly cheap feel this phone performs with the best, found it better then the curve 8310 in terms of speed and responsiveness and the wifi is a great add on... I would recommend this phone to ANYONE anytime.
