Hello all , well i got the Motorola Charm the day it came out for T-Mobile USA (August 25th), and i am here to share my likes, dislikes and all of that.
I came from a Blackberry Bold 9700, didn't like it because there was a lack of apps but The Charm is my first Android device and i absolutely love it!
Android 2.1 is great on this phone, haven't had a lag or a force close at all. I am very social, with Facebook & twitter so Motoblur is pretty good keeping up with all of the latest posts i get, etc... Keyboard is great!, about the same or probably a lil better than the bold 9700's keyboard. Screen size isn't an issue for me at all, i have no problem turning my phone landscape so the screen is horizontal to read my engadget news etc.., The Backtrack feature is pretty cool, i rarely use it but for web browsing comes in pretty handy. Camera takes really good pictures, cant complain. Phone is very fast!, cant complain and Android is a very good OS
One concern was battery life, but after reading the Motorola charm forums over at Motorola's website, on a regular battery it'll last me a whole day and extended probably 2 days? Maybe a lil more? Depends. WiFi also helps with battery life (look up the app Y5 Battery Saver). Overall very good phone, just waiting for some ROMS (possibly android 2.2), phone IS rooted, bloatware is gone (and other things).
Give u guys a run down of my apps:
Android Central App
Advanced Task Killer
Yahoo Mail App
AppBrain App Market
Fast Web Installer
Y5-Battery Saver (look up for more info)
Available Memory after rooting and uninstalling bloatware & crapware=268MB Free
The phone is AMAZING !
Yes definitely not for corporate business people, (probably go with a high-end android device or blackberry, or possibly iphone)
The ONLY DISLIKE i have is that when i put the Charm to sleep, when i get a message, i press the lock/power button on top and sometimes the touch screen is unresponsive (i hope Motorola will issue an update or fix for this)
If you guys have any questions, comments, any of that. PM me or comment back.
