Love phone not so much keyboard

Love the WinMo6.5.5 but this phone seems to drop calls a lot, and battery life isnt where I would like it compared to my Dash 3G it replaced. Overall find myself using the touchscreen keyboard over the pull out one because it doesnt feel comfortable in my hands. That said I have big hands and its mainly my thumbs that seem to feel uncomfratble using the phone. Other than that its great. very fast and responsive, apps, work well, LOVE the Google Maps app, seems upgraded from what was on my Dash 3G. Biggest Plus is the style I have big hands and it makes a huge difference I don't think I have seen a smart phone with a integrated stylus in 3 years. That was probably the main reason I got it.

Design 8/10
Features 10/10
Performance 9/10

Pros

  • Touchscreen
  • WinMo 6.5
  • A STYLUS !!! (AH I miss them)

Cons

  • Keyboard shape isnt comfortable in my large hands.

Great phone

This is a great phone.  I'm very happy with it.  I bought the Touch Pro 2 after using the HTC Touch Cruise for one year (also a good phone).  What drew me to the Touch Pro 2 were the added features, bigger screen, excellent keyboard, superb speakerphone and lots of features. 
The other day, I bought a mini projector and plugged in the $18.95 video out cable.  Worked perfectly.  Suddenly, I could see a 24" screen and surf the net, play games, and watch a movie with stuff that fit into my pocket.  Hopefully, one day, they will embed a projector into a phone.  I'd pay extra for that. 

Design 9/10
Features 8/10
Performance 9/10

Pros

  • See above

Cons

  • What I'd like to change:
  • * I wish there were a decent instant-screen-rotater. Several free versions downloaded from the net fixed most of that, although they are a bit clunky, i.e., don't rotate when you want or do when you don't.
  • * the keyboard lower half body now doesn't align perfectly. It's minor, but slightly annoying to me. I can live with that.
  • * Activesync - I wish this was better. But, that's Microsoft, not the phone.
  • * 3.5mm speaker outlet instead of the HTC version

T-Mobile Touch Pro 2

I bought my Touch Pro 2 the day it came out, August 12. Since then I have had 3 of them. It is a great phone, and I love it. The one phone I took back because it kept giving me a ghost message saying that I had a new message when I didn't, (come to find out, a lot of people have this problem and there are ways to fix it). The other one I sent back because a blue circle (haze) was in my LCD... Other than that, I really like my Touch Pro 2. I like it because of the keyboard and the loudspeaker. I have never had a Windows Mobile phone so it took time for me to get used to it, but I really have no issues with it, though WinMo users say they are sick of it, and hope Windows 7 brings it back to life. I do not like the way you cannot delete programs that came with the phone, though. There are a lot of programs I don't find myself using, such as: Internet Explorer, Jetcet, and Handango... I do like the fact that WinMo has so much internet support, and really has a lot of ways to customize it. All in all, I really like the phone, it is practical, very business oriented, camera is wonderful, and keyboard is great!
