A great, full featured phone
Pros: Great touch screen, full qwerty keyboard, full HTML browser, Mobile TV, VZ Navigator
Cons: No flash for camera, internal speakerphone only
The Bottom Line:
If you want a great phone that will continue to impress both your friends and you, the Voyager is tough to beat.
In the past I have always bought decent but inexpensive phones. I finally decided a few months ago that I wanted a phone that would both be full featured and impress my friends. I wasn't willing to leave Verizon, and even if I were the iPhone definitely did not impress me. Initially I was looking at the EnV, but while in the store I saw the Voyager and fell in love. After about two weeks of constant research, I decided to buy the Voyager, and I am very happy with my decision.
First and most notably is the touch screen. It is very responsive, looks amazing, and provides access to many of the Voyager's tools and extra features... such as VZ Navigator, the HTML web browser, Mobile IM, the Music Manager, and the video and picture managers.
The camera is used by viewing the touchscreen. It is a 2.0 MP camera, includes video capabilities, and has many options. The only bad thing about the camera is it does not have a flash.
The phone has a clamshell flip feature which opens to a full qwerty keyboard and a second, regular screen. The qwerty keyboard is very easy to use, the keys have good spacing, and it includes a 4-way directional pad that makes tasks such as web browsing a lot easier. With the phone open, you can also access the speakerphone, which functions very well. The only problem is it cannot be used with the phone closed.
The phone also includes an 8.0 GB expandable microSD slot, which allows you to put music, videos, and pictures on your phone, as well as acts as a regular USB drive. It has advanced Bluetooth 2.0, an advanced contact list that supports multiple numbers, and even the ability to read text messages to you.
The web browser allows full HTML websites, meaning most sites are viewable with the Voyager. It is easy to use, and the connection is very fast with Verizon's EVDO network.
Optional services include MobileTV (where available), VZ Navigator with voice alert (works very well), and a great email application that works with Yahoo! Mail, Windows Live (Hotmail), AOL, AIM mail, Verizon Mail, Gmail, and many more. It also has a Mobile IM application, which (at the cost of text messages) allows you to use AIM, MSN Messanger, and Yahoo! messenger.
That is an overview of the features on the Voyager. The only cons regarding this phone are the lack of flash with the camera, no speakerphone with the phone closed, and no flash support for the web browser. Otherwise, this is a great phone that will be around for a long time.
