i-mate Ultimate 6150 Review
During our tests with SPB Benchmark, the device performed quite well, in some aspects surpassing phones as HP iPAQ 614 and Eten X800. Despite the positive test results, in everyday use, 6150 is sluggish, especially after starting 2-3 applications.

For a business phone, such as i-mate 6150, the sound quality during a talk is extremely important. In this aspect, the model did relatively good; the volume at both ends is sufficient to have a normal conversation and you’ll understand every word perfectly well although the voices sound somewhat sharp.

The loudspeaker also performs well. Unfortunately, as we mentioned above, it is on the back of the phone and you’ll have to turn it around, to hear better. Voices are heard quite loud and sharp.

i-mate 6150 is equipped with a 1530 mAh battery, which according to the official data provided by the manufacturer, should provide up to 4 hours of talk time or 150 in standby mode (too short for such a device).


Conclusion:

i-mate 6150 possesses all main features of a good business phone – quality sound during a talk and stable (although somewhat sluggish) performance. The standard advantages of the Windows Mobile devices are present here as well.

Unfortunately, the inconvenient and slow document viewing makes connecting the phone to a monitor/printer pointless to a great extend, eliminating one of the more interesting functions. Therefore the phone transforms into another regular solution for the prosumer group. In this category, we’d prefer HTC Touch Diamond in any aspect, including the user-friendly personalized interface, the design and the fast operating speed.

Pros

  • Fast and reliable
  • VGA display
  • Global 3G phone

Cons

  • Hard to use without a stylus
  • Bulky size and shape, making it hard to use during a talk
