I've had my Motorola Q for a couple of months now and I am not happy with it at all. I have decided that I am going to get a blackberry instead. The problems with the Motorola Q are numerous and I am not the only one who thinks this way, I have talked to a couple of "Q" owners and they all agree that the Q isn't very good. My biggest problem is the tendency for the Motorola Q to freeze while I am trying to make a call or check my mail. I am always rebooting because of this and it is extremely annoying and a huge point of frustration when I am trying to answer mail. The Q looks good but the functionality is poor, I keep waiting for some kind of a fix to make the thing faster, but nothing thing yet from Motorola.Also, the sound on phone calls is fuzzy compared to my TREO.
Conversely, I love my Treo, it is everything the Motorola Q isn’t, fast, easy to use and reliable. The Treo is my work phone and I love it.
I plan to get rid of the Motorola Q and try a blackberry, just too many issues with the Q. My neighbor loves her blackberry so much she hates it; she claims that she never has to reboot it and it is fairly quick at downloading her mail and other messages. It has one of the features of the Motorola Q that I like, the click wheel, lets you keep your hands on the unit while you scroll through your messages. I like the functionality of the click wheel when I have to quickly check a message while I am at a stop light, etc.
I really think these smart phones are going to be how we receive our media in the very near future. We will read our newspapers, listen to our music and watch our favorite TV shows right on our smart phones sooner rather than later.
I'm looking at the one picture above, I'll let you know how it works when I buy it.
