    What you like and not like about the Storm?

    Advertisement



    I've posted quite a few times when the Bold came out about the things I liked and didn't like about my Bold when it first came out so I thought it would be nice for you Blackberry Storm owners to have a thread as well about what you guys like and don't like about your Blackberry Storm.

    I don't own a Storm but what I really did enjoy about it when I played with one at a retail store is:

    *The Touch Screen was a lot more impressive and more responsive than I thought it would be
    *I like the fact when I was typing on the full keyboard it not only lighted up the particular key it also highlighted the area around it to make it more assuring.
    *I really enjoyed the size and brilliance of the screen.
    * gives you two options of either the predictive text keyboard or the full qwerty.
    *Fully functioning global with UMTS.
    *Volume is a lot louder than the Bold.

    What I didn't like about what I saw so far is:

    *When typing keys, icons, or options it always seemed a little bit off maybe it could have been dirty screen?
    *I don't know if it comes with a stylus or not but I think I would be able to type a lot faster with it.
    *The revolving screen is extremely sensitive and I found myself constantly shaking the device to get it back to the correct desired position.
    *I would imagine writing emails would be a lot slower and slightly cumbersome.

    What are your thoughts guys?

    P.S. If someone has already posted a thread similar to this my apologies in advance.

    Cool info. Thanks for sharing. How about the size? Is it big and bulky or rather compact and stylish? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I just don't understand these comments about the storm being "bulky" or "heavy"... Do we not remember just 5 years ago, or even 10 years ago? These phones are small, people! I guess some people won't be happy until it is microscopic... If you want a small phone go get a little sony thing or some other flip phone... oh wait, that's right, its JUST a phone!

    Does anyone have complaints with any of the basic functions or features of the Storm?

    I love SureType,I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I dislike the buttons being placed in the bottom left and right corners because they seem harder to push. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I'm getting my phone tomorrow, but I would like to know if the phone is readable outdoors. The reason being is that my current, LG Dare, is horrible to read when I'm outside...the screen is damn faint. I loved my old Pearl because the light adjusted beautifully whether indoors or outdoors.

    So, can anyone let me know how it does outside?

    Thanks!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ media player is great although I can't compare it to the dare. Better than the media player in any of my previous phones for sure. Iphone users may not like it as well, but let's face it - that's what apple does best.
