OMG this phone looks awesome

Sabrinaismynamedontwearitout has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

OMG I havent gotten this phone yet but it looks great. I cant wait to get it! People say they have problems with calling, but I almost never call, so that wont be a prob. Also my brother in law is a verizon manager and he says this phone is an awesome phone. I really like how its a touch screen (never had one before im sooooooooo excited) but ut also has a QWERTY keyboard, so there wont be any touch screen typey issues. I have been looking for a phone perfect for me and now I have decided this Cosmos touch is definitely the one I want. Thanks everyone else for reviewing about this phone, cuz now I know i want to get it! I'm so excited!!!!!!!!! This loooks SO much bettter than my old Blitz, I want it SO bad!

Pros

  • Looks pretty
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Touch Screen (ALWAYS wanted one!)
  • SO much cooler than my old Blitz
  • full keyboard is slidey, not a flip, which I like
  • Keyboard is a pretty color
  • call and end buttons, i like that.
  • Very popular phone, so it will be easier to get a good case for it

Cons

  • No video, although not really a prob, the blitz doesnt either
  • only black, no other colors(thats ok i can get a case)
  • I cant find any more bad things!!!!!!!

This is an amazing phone! I think you should get it, but if your not used to keyboard texting... It may take a while to get used to :) this phone is very pretty, and very normal, if you want a touch screen phone that works well, i reccomend this one, its not to hard to figure out either! :)

This phone is terrible. Powers off frequently, and sends texts to the wrong people all the time. I had it for 2 weeks with continous problems. Verizon replaced it and the new one is just as bad or worse. If you text a lot, DON'T BUY THIS PHONE!!!!

the phone sucks. it deletes texts, shuts off, takes 5minutes to send texts, and the touch screen is horrible. I have had it just over a month and wish i never got it. i wish i had waited for the iPhone 4 because this phone is the worst, my friend has the same phone with the same problems.

hatethisphone has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I got this phone in January and am on my third one. My third one is just as bad as my first one. The phone shuts off when I slide it shut, my text messages send twice, my sent messages get randomly deleted (the newer ones before the old ones), nobody can hear me during phone calls, and text messages appear to be from and sent to the wrong people. I am not usually picky on phones, but this one is particularly terrible.

Love It!

britt has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I have now had my phone a little over a month and I have to say that I absolutely love it! The Cosmos Touch is such a big upgrade from my EnV2. I have never once had any problems with it at all...most of the problems that some people are complaining about can be changed within the phone if you just look through your settings...as far as how your messages are displayed and stuff like that. I highly recommend this phone!

This phone has been great for everyday use. Overall, there is very little to complain about (see below) - it works well, is easy to use, and has a nice large touch screen. Most people won't thoroughly read this paragraph anyway, so you can look at the detailed review below to find out what I do and don't like about it.

Reception 9/10 Seems fine
Call quality 6/10 People have to ask me to repeat things a lot...
Internet 10/10 Don't use it
Multimedia 10/10 Great
Camera 6/10 below average, no video
UI speed 6/10 It can be slow, but not terribly so
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10 Keyboard has a good feel and is more spacious than some sliders
Display 10/10 Love the touch screen and large display
Battery 3/10 Lasts only two days with mild usage

Stick with Motorola

Boogins has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Sensitivity is BAD. Phone goes analog and generates an echo on the receiving end of the call. DON'T BUY, if your primary use is as a telephone. Texting is great. Touch screen works well. Phone seems well built. Camera is an anemic 1.3 mp. The key is that it should be a phone first and it just isn't up to the task compared to my old Motorola.

I can not stand this phone. I use my phone for texting mainly and this phone is below my expectations set by my old phone. Its keyboard is way to small and the touch screen is very annoying when trying to scroll while texting. Plus the camera is bad and I wasn't able to transfer my pictures from it. And every other feature it has is average to me, I do not recommend it.

Best cell phone ever

Anthony has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

It comes with everything i need. It has a camera and it takes good photos. Sending a text message is a breeze! It is easy to personalize. It has a space theme that looks really good. However, 3 times since i got this phone, i had it locked and i pulled it out of my pocket and i found it calling someone although i didn't press any buttons. Other than that, i am happy.

Great phone

The phone I had before this was the env 3 and it was good. i got pushed into the pool with it so it stopped working good and had terrible battery time. this phone is easy to use and I can work it well and have never used a phone with a touch screen. I like that the phone has a keyboard so you don't have to use a touch screen to type. I have only had this phone since the 15th but so far no problems. I highly reccomend it.

Great Phone!!!!!!

Tranedr has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This is an amazing phone! I highly reccomend it. I love the touch screen, and I also enjoy the slide out keyboard feature. It has a decent camera, and there is no video recording, which may be a problem for some, but not for me. I love the texts appearing as a chat room! That is so cool! It is a very sleek and user friendly device. One problem that I have experienced is that the device randomly restarts itself, which poses as an inconvienence at times. Overall, it is a great phone, with a few kinks, but overall, great!!!!!!!!

i absolutely love this phone. i hated my old phone (Verizon Blitz) and this is such an upgrade. The touch screen is easy to use, texting is great on this phone, and its easy to learn. I have had no problems with it yett. The camera might only be 1.3 megapixels but it still takes great pictures! And you can edit the pictures in many ways to make it look better and cooler. It has a lot of different features on it, and they're easy to find. Overall, the phone is just great. I'm a teenager and i can use it well, so i'm sure this phone is great for any ages! (:

Not too bad.

Dee has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I've had this phone for almost a month, and I've really been liking it. It get's a little slow when you are using it and you get a text, but I think that's fairly normal. My biggest problem is that if you don't fully charge the battery (even if you charge it for 3 hours) the battery doesn't last that long. If you do charge it fully though, then it lasts a while. Also, whenever I try to go to my sent box, it shuts off. I like that touch screen is actually a touch screen, and not a heat sensing one, so yes, you do have to touch the screen a little bit harder, but if you have long fingernails, or gloves on, you can still use it. There isn't really anything I can rave about, but nothing I can complain about either.

I have had this phone for a couple days and have really been enjoying it. The keyboard is good and I have bulky fingers. The touch works just fine though you do have to press down harder than an iPod touch (it is a cheaper display of course). Great interface and created for testing. Features work great with social networks and all. My only negative is no video. The camera is just fine but if you are looking for video don't get this phone.

Good Phone!

SkippyBippy1114 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I've had this phone for about a week. I'm really happy with this phone. I had the EnV 1 before I switched over to the Cosmos Touch and this is definitely an upgrade. My old phone was bulky and looked outdated. This phone is light-weight and the touch screen is fantastic. One problem I'm having is that sometimes when I slide the phone shut and randomly restarts itself. Is anyone else having this problem?? As I said, I've only had this phone for about a week but I could see this problem definitely becoming annoying in the future, as any person would.
